"A satisfying end to a most satisfying series.... Bear’s use of Norse myths is outstanding and her reimagining of them is simply top-notch."
--RT Book Reviews (Top Pick!)
Praise for All the Windwracked Stars:
"Bear creates a world with an astonishing depth of mythology in a tale that begins with Ragnarok…Bear’s world-building echoes the best of Zelazny and pulls the reader into the story and the history until it’s over. Muire is one of Bear’s more interesting and likable characters, and the mythology Bear deploys promises further satisfying stories based in it." —Booklist (starred review)
"Bear's ability to create breathtaking variations on ancient themes and make them new and brilliant is, perhaps, unparalleled in the genre. Her lyrical style and heroically flawed characters make this a priority purchase for most libraries. Highly recommended." —Library Journal (starred review)
Praise for By the Mountain Bound:
“Numerous fantasy authors adopt the tropes of Norse mythology, but Bear actively pursues them, channeling those myths directly rather than overlaying them on more familiar ones. The result demands much from readers, but repays it in vivid, sensual imagery of a wholly different world.” —Publishers Weekly
