Praise for Brokedown Palace

“Brust is an indubitable master of swashbuckling high fantasy.” —Booklist on Five Hundred Years After

“Steven Brust just might be America's best fantasy writer.” —Tad Williams on Steven Brust

“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.” —Neil Gaiman on Steven Brust
