Reviews for The Red-Stained Wings (#2 Lotus Kingdoms)

Praise for The Stone in the Skull Elizabeth Bear sweeps the reader into a world of ravishing detail. --Huffington Post Amazing worldbuilding, gloriously precise prose, and excellent pacing. The Eternal Sky trilogy is one of the great fantasy epics of the last decade, and Bear triumphantly returns to that setting. --Library Journal Glorious and dramatic. --Publishers Weekly, starred review The plot hews closely to the whole band-of-rogues-assemble-to-fight-stronger-band-of-foes . . . Bear noodles around that trope like a jazz master and takes the story to some interesting places . . . --Locus This is a promising beginning indeed for an epic . . . and it will no doubt be a magnificent journey. --Booklist A panoramic drama that grabs and grips from Page 1 . . . vivid, absorbing, and thrilling. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Clever and beautifully written. --Elitist Book Reviews A thoughtful, richly complex, humane work eloquently told and elegantly constructed. --Fantasy Literature Enchanting. --The Illustrated Page
