Praise for Green:
"Lush fantasy filled with exotic locales and exquisite descriptions.… The story is nicely powered by strong mythic undertones and a fresh take on the relationship between gods and mortals."
"A fascinating, difficult character, Green lives in a remarkable world, in which gods walk the earth, and not all people are human. Lake’s world-building is stellar."
"The richness of [Lake's] rendering of urban life as tapestry is genuinely irresistible."
—John Clute, Washington Post Book World
"Running with Green over the city's gilded rooftops, plunging through sewers with her to confront a skinless avatar of the God of Pain, readers will feel the exhilaration of freedom deeply prized, unceasingly sought, and hard-won."
—Seattle Times (Tiptree Award-winning author Nisi Shawl)
ENDURANCE by Jay LakeKirkus Book Reviews
Read the Kirkus Review of ENDURANCE . Gritty sequel to Lake's steampunk-fantasy <em>Green<em> (2009), wherein the eponymous hero, sold as a child, trained as a courtesan and schooled as an assassin, killed one god and gave birth to another.
