Reviews


"I can guarantee you won't regret venturing into Sarah Zettel's world."
--Sara Douglass on Sarah Zettell

"Characters leap off the page with heart-wrenching emotions and daring choices. Zettel's world-building continues to be faultless, blending Chinese, Indian and Russian folklore and magic into a cohesive and compelling whole. This is the touching tale of a mother's love, a journey of self-discovery and an enthralling adventure rolled into one."
--Romantic Times on "The Firebird's Vengeance"

"A finely drawn portrait of a strong woman's devotion to those who love her."
--Library Journal on" The Firebird's Vengeance"

"Zettel has enjoyed creating this multi-layered world, packed with inventive ideas and characters. Detailed descriptions of spell-weaving, gods inhabiting men inhabiting gods (honest) and a vixen goddess make for memorable images. Similarly, scenes of a city burning beneath a shrieking fire-god while its people flee in terror are punchy and vivid."
--SFX on "The Firebird's Vengeance"

"Complicated court intrigue is brought alive in a setting, enriched by research in Russian folklore and magiclore, for a very cleverly woven fantasy. A good read indeed."
--Andre Norton on "A Sorcerer's Treason"

"Ms. Zettel's confident treatment of her ambitious material shows just how entertaining the "grand tradition of Heinlein and Asimov" can be in sympathetic hands."
--Gerald Jonas, "New York"" Times" on "Fool's War"
