"A great, glorious *country* of a book. It manages to be both comfortingly domestic & unsettlingly eerie." --Nalo Hopkinson

"An enchanting and gentle fable, rich with detail and characters you will love." --Charles de Lint

"A gorgeous creation -- full of mystery, hope and, most of all, heart." --Anne Bishop

"I LOVE this book." --Ed Greenwood

"Many fantasy novels out there are 'about' magic. Few, like Julie's, embody it." --Kristen Britain

"This book is a triumph, it contains everything that made me love her work in SF, and it’s wonderful to see that she’s carried that over into a fantasy blockbuster." --Lyn McConchie
