Reviews

I'd strongly recommend it to anyone who does love this genre. Overall The Bone Queen was a satisfying prequel - gently adding to our knowledge of characters and the world of Pellinor, and providing an entertaining read without getting too caught up in pretension. -- Reader Review * The Guardian Online *
