SciFiNow
An early Tarantino version of an urban fantasy... The war is coming, says the cover; given this first battle, it's going to be one hell of a ride.
Starburst on POISON CITY
Crilley's magical world ain't kid stuff. If you like your spellcraft dangerous, exhilarating, and chillingly double-edged, look no further.
Becky Chambers, author of THE LONG WAY TO A SMALL, ANGRY PLANET on POISON CITY
