'Anna Smith Spark is a dynamic new voice in the field of grimly baroque fantasy, a knowing and witty provisioner of the Grand Guignol, a cheerful undertaker strolling across the graveyard and beckoning you to admire her newest additions.' Scott Lynch Reviews for The Court of Broken Knives: 'Grim, gritty and fast paced, with great battle scenes! Anna Smith-Spark is one to watch'. -Andy Remic 'Holy crap this is good!' -Grim Tidings 'On a par with R. Scott Bakker.' -Grimdark Alliance
