"Bernobich's debut is simply marvelous. Ilse is a memorably strong protagonist who has to make a lot of really difficult choices in order to survive and Raul Kosenmark is one of the most unique heroes this reviewer has ever encountered. The worldbuilding is top-notch."    —Natalie A. Luhrs, RT Book Reviews

"Passion Play, indeed. Passionate, articulate, clever, this book sings right along. Desperate measures and hope bundled together in a daring adventure. Byzantine politics seldom combine so well with great characters. A marvelous debut novel."   —Patricia Briggs, New York Times bestselling author

"Bernobich's debut is a rich, compulsively readable fantasy."   —Booklist

2012 Locus Recommended Reading List

"The promise of Passion Play is realized in this complex sequel, a tale of intrigue among kingdoms on the brink of war…a masterful story of romance, honor, and a little bit of suspense, with plenty of history, geography, and mythology thrown in for good measure. This trip between the physical and magical realms is thrilling."   —Publishers Weekly
