Review quote

"This rich, delicately crafted world is stocked with vibrant characters... and supports a powerful story told in a delightful series of wrenching moments." --Publishers Weekly Starred Review

[The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps] shows that fantasy still has some really fascinating places to go. --Charlie Jane Anders, io9

"The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps... is the story equivalent of the shot heard around the world." --Marty Cahill, BookRiot

"A tale which is so dense and rich in its depictions of the various different societies and places that you end it feeling as if you've been immersed in its world." --Paul Simpson, Sci-Fi Bulletin

Wilson isn't the first black writer to demonstrate the possibilities of mixing traditional fantasy tropes with African-American culture, of course, but few have concentrated so brilliantly on the linguistic implications of doing so. --Strange Horizons

"At its heart, Sorcerer of the Wildeeps is a beautiful yet brutal fairy tale about gods and monsters, loneliness and love. At 208 pages, the journey may not seem far but it will stay with you for a long time afterwards." --Michaela Gray, Geek Syndicate
