Reviews for Navola

Gorgeously detailed and utterly immersive, Navola must stand as one of the greatest and grandest fantasy novels of the modern era, its all-too real horrors beautifully measured. Nothing short of a masterpiece * Daily Mail * 'Steeped in poison, betrayal, and debauchery, reading Navola is like slipping into a luxurious bath full of blood.' -- Holly Black Medici Florence meets Tony Soprano’s New Jersey - with a delicious dash of high fantasy and a heavy splattering of blood. Navola is a grand feat of imagination by a storyteller at the peak of his powers. * Dan Jones * Bacigalupi dazzles in this addictive account of the rivalries between powerful families in a brilliantly rendered fantastical world inspired by 15th-century Florence. * Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW * [A] masterful fantasy epic... all of the sf/f fan-favorite Bacigalupi hallmarks are here: deep character development and astounding world-building, but this time with dragons * Booklist, STARRED review * The triumph of Navola is that so often it’s genuinely innovative, a fantasy novel that you didn’t know you wanted to read * SFX, 5* * A rewarding, slow-release pleasure... has real punch and power * The Herald, Book of the Month * Very much in the George R. R. Martin style. Very readable * Bookseller's Circle *
