Reviews

Rjurik Davidson works the sharp edges where epic fantasy, uncanny science fiction, and the New Weird collide. An amazing debut. Scott Westerfeld A lyrical and evocative novel of ancient magic, minotaurs and myth; of dreams and nightmares, sacrifice and redemption. Highly recommended. Garth Nix Rjurik has a brilliant, fecund imagination, and I absolutely love the setting and the sense of place in the book. Caeli-Amur is one of the more memorable cities in recent fantasy. Hannu Rajaniemi A brooding tale of civil unrest and personal destinies. Publishers Weekly Impressively imagined and densely detailed. Kirkus A heady mix of political theory and existentialism set to the backdrop of revolution in a magical city, Unwrapped Sky would be hard to imagine in a world before China Mieville. However, this debut novel from Australian author Rjurik Davidson can go toe-to-toe with Perdido Street Station and Iron Council as an imaginative, immersive read with a point to make.

However, this debut novel from Australian author Rjurik Davidson can go toe-to-toe with Perdido Street Station and Iron Council as an imaginative, immersive read with a point to make. SCIFINOW Unwrapped Sky will thrill fans of rich mythologies ... It simultaneously delivers something new, while feeling engagingly comfortable. MANIA.COM Davidson immerses readers in his blend of fantasy and science fiction via striking characters who rush headlong into chaotic and dangerous situations from which they belatedly realize they're unable to extricate themselves. SEATTLE TIMES One of the best and most original fantasy novels I've read to date. It's an impressive achievement, because it's a refreshingly different kind of a fantasy novel. Its wonderfully new weirdish atmosphere will leave readers holding their breath and wanting more. With this novel Rjurik Davidson proves that he is the new master of new weirdish fantasy that sparkles with creativity and originality. Very highly recommended! RISINGSHADOW.NET Unwrapped Sky is an ambitions fantasy novel with a breathtakingly vast world tangled in a web of deceit, betrayal, and revolution ... I highly recommend it to anyone interested in an engrossing fantasy that will whisk you off to faraway places. EMPYREANEDGE.COM An original story that sets 19th century political struggles in a fascinating fantasy world. Davidson's characters are flawed and compelling. This is an ambitious debut from a very promising writer. POPMYTHOLOGY.COM This book is a journey, and that's the kind of book I like the most. It's one of those novels that I had to savor and read slowly, and I just know I will catch something different every time I read it. What a gift. BOOKWORMBLUES.NET
