'Bold, compelling fantasy with a truly original setting.' Saladin Ahmed

'Sami Shah blends the tenderness of Octavia Butler with the supernatural folklore of Nalo Hopkinson. His characters - human and otherwise - are skilfully drawn, and the vibrant streets of Karachi are vividly brought to life. Fire Boy is an eloquent imagination explosion.' Maxine Beneba Clarke

'I was enchanted by the lyrical and atmospheric prose - Sami Shah brings the streets of Karachi to life with a deft hand, ancient folklore colliding with the modern internet age.' Kylie Chan

'Captivating. Sami Shah's imagination is a place of wonder and terror.' Kamila Shamsie
