"Spare, dangerous, strangely whimsical, damn fine. Read this. It's good."
—Elizabeth Bear on The Incrementalists
"Powerful, manipulative and yet oh-so-very-human, the Incrementalists are my favorite secret society ever. This book is the perfect introduction to these imperfect history makers, with Brust and White as charming, knowing guides to their world."
—John Scalzi on The Incrementalists
"Delightful, exciting, and sometimes brilliant, Steven Brust is the latest in a line of great Hungarian writers, which (I have no doubt) includes Alexandre Dumas, C. S. Forester, Mark Twain, and the author of the juciest bits of the Old Testament."
"Steven Brust might just be America's best fantasy writer."
"As always, Brust invests Vlad with the panache of a Dumas musketeer and the colloquial voice of one of Zelazny's Amber heroes. This is a rousing adventure with enough humor, action and sneaky plot twists to please newcomers as well as longtime series fans."
—Publishers Weekly on Dragon
"Steven Brust, in a genre that's mostly done by the numbers these days, maintains a hipster charm and an originality of mind."
—The Philadelphia Inquirer on Agyar
