For California Bones
"Wonderfully imaginative." --Booklist, starred review
"I both love and am terrified by Greg Van Eekhout's vision of Los Angeles. I already want to go back. "--John Scalzi, Hugo Awardwinning author of Old Man's War
"Van Eekhout's combination of caper novel and urban fantasy packs a wallop....Highly recommended."--Library Journal, starred review
For Pacific Fire
"Set in the same world as California Bones, van Eekhout delivers another engaging adventure that, surprisingly for the genre, doesn't require readers to have read the previous book. Readers will empathize with Sam as he longs to be a "normal" boy and tries to find his place in the world, and the magic system van Eekhout has created continues to fascinate." -- RT Book Reviews, 4.5 star review
"A creative magic system, a fictional SoCal that actually contains Latinos, power struggles, friendship, family, a dash of romance, air travel, land travel, sea travel, someone from a boy band -- this book has it all!"
-- Lightspeed Magazine
"Van Eekhout's voice has grown stronger in Pacific Fire and he's locked onto a snappy hu-mor that serves as a foil for the stakes he keeps raising. He manages to do what fantasy should, which is use the unreal to show us truths about how humans work."
For Dragon Coast
"Van Eekhout finishes off this trilogy in a manner that satisfies readers even as it leaves them wondering -- in other words, he allows the perfect platform for telling more stories in this world."
-- RT Book Reviews, 4.5 star review
"This volume marks a welcome return to the kind of heist plot that made Van Eekhout's debut, California Bones, so captivating. The author's fantastic ear for dialog is often well employed in snark, especially between Daniel and his friend and fellow thief Moth."--Library Journal
..".Strong writing from van Eekhout, with exciting magical battles and a difficult heist..."
