Praise for Household Gods

"I believed it all--the torchlit streets and pungent taverns, the cool marble courtyards, the filthy, verminous beds, the wine as thick and sweet as syrup. All this and a fascinating protagonist as well. Nicole Perrin manages to be vulnerable and intrepid at the same time. She's a real person. Thanks to the skills of Tarr and Turtledove, the two worlds she inhabits are just as real."--Morgan Llywelyn
 
"Drawing on a wealth of fascinating historical material and fleshing it out with snappy dialogue, superb characterizations and a genuinely appealing heroine, Tarr and Turtledove genially prove how much fun it can be to go back to Oz."
--Publishers Weekly
 
"Seamless and completely believable."
--KLIATT
 
"Veteran fantasy author Tarr and alternative-history specialist Turtledove ... combine their considerable talents in a tale of time travel that recalls such classics as A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, yet emphasizes the human qualities that transcend the limitations of history."
--Library Journal
