"Rawn's elegantly written saga about an artist's compulsion to create is a superb homage to the world of the theater and sets a new benchmark for excellence in high fantasy." --Library Journal, starred review on Elsewhens "A lived-in world where the scars from magical wars still linger and pure blood is a thing of the distant past.... will appeal to fantasy fans and theater lovers alike." --Publishers Weekly on Touchstone "With a fully realized world and magical system, as well as a character-driven plot, this will appeal to fans of traditional fantasies like [Sanderson's] Warbreaker or [O'Sullivan's] Riyria series." --Booklist on Touchstone
