Reviews for Infernal Machines (#3 Incorruptibles)

John Hornor Jacobs has build an amazingly rich world with both lovable and hateable characters that is just downright awesome. * The Book Plank * For all of Foreign Devils' magic, mystery and monsters, it's a novel about people, and how they react to forces beyond their control and the machinations of those in power... and it's precisely this personal perspective that keeps the book endlessly captivating. * Starburst Magazine * Picking up where 'The Incorruptibles' left off, 'Foreign Devils' is a fast paced ride through a rough and dangerous world...'Foreign Devils' is one hell of a ride - pun fully intended - and I can't wait to see where Jacobs takes us next. * Forbidden Planet International * One of the most compelling things about the fantasy genre is the sense it gives of other realities existing a mere hair's breadth from our own...Foreign Devils is an especially adept example of this... brutal, beautiful tale. * The Daily Mail * 'It's here that The Incorruptibles gets good. Great, I'd go so far as to say. Now that the stakes have been made plain, our heroes' real responsibilities revealed, and the overarching conflict at least alluded to, Jacobs' novel properly kicks off. What follows is grim and gripping, surprising and exciting, tense and tremendously well-told, too.' -- Niall Alexcander * Tor.com * 'One part ancient Rome, two parts wild west, one part Faust. A pinch of Tolkien, of Lovecraft, of Dante. This is strange alchemy, a recipe I've never seen before. I wish more books were as fresh and brave as this' -- Patrick Rothfuss * Gollancz * One of the most compelling things about the fantasy genre is the sense that it gives of other realities existing a mere hair's breadth from our own...Foreign Devils is an especially adept example of this * Daily Mail *
