ALL THE BUZZ
what the world is saying
"Fantasy fiction has a new worthy addition.... A literary escape worth taking in this year or the next."
"...a fantastical journey of self-discovery and redemption."

“…the author’s nuanced portrayal of a young woman’s self-discovery will resonate with readers. Likewise, Hay’s accomplished worldbuilding— crowded village squares, ethereal palaces, and host of well-defined secondary characters— gives vivid life to Aria’s complex world…”
BOOKLIFE by PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"Packed with atmosphere, intrigue, and incredible world-building from cover to cover. A real masterpiece of character-led and conceptual storytelling."
“Hay’s prose is simple yet atmospheric in style, and it illuminates a world where the spiritual and physical exist side by side. Aria is portrayed as feisty and willful… she brings a recognizably human perspective to this allegory of good and evil.”
