Review quote

"I loved the intensity of flaws each character possessed. There wasn t a single soul (or nonsoul) in this story who didn t have some gigantic flaws and they seemed ripe for the pickin and boy does Chuck know how to do it."
-Bite My Book
"The Blue Blazes"is a fun, fast-paced novel that blends the best of noir, a Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual, and melodrama into something special.
-Fantasy Faction
"So if you need something dark, gritty, and fun, I recommendThe Blue Blazes."
-Three Crow Press
Wendig has taken the cast of Goodfellas and dragged them, kicking and screaming into a fantasy reality of New York, opened up the playground and let them run loose
-Wilder's Book Review
punchy dialog, snappy prose, and a gritty narrative voice
-Odd Engine
imaginative, funny, profound, tough, and poetic all at once
-Elf Machines from Hyperspace
"In the end, "The Blue Blazes"is a blast, an awesome, smartly written novel that far exceeds the sum of its parts"
-Rob Bedford, SFFWorld
" a heart-stopping ride from beginning to end. I think it is my stand out book of the year..."
-Jane, Book Chick City
"Rounded off with an emotional finale, The Blue Blazes is a serious contender for book of the year."
-Alister, Starburst Magazine
"It s a brilliantly imagined world, as ick-inducing as it is, and it s easy to see Mookie s place in it."
-Vampire Book Club"
