Reviews of Kushiel's Scion


This is an excellent Book following in the footsteps of excellent predecessors. -- Leola Brooks, The Eternal Night

At 753 pages this isn't a quick read and in this case, that is a good thing as this should be savored. -- Sandy Amazeen, Monsters And Critics

This isn't the Book the original trilogy was, but I think any lover of the earlier Books will want to read it nonetheless. -- eagle , Eagle's Path

There's a lot going on in this baroquely plotted novel, but the Author never loses sight of what makes these Books so wonderful: the characters. -- Natalie A. Luhrs, The Romantic Times Book Reviews
