In the press
PRAISE FOR NAOMI NOVIK
“A new writer is soaring on the wings of a dragon.”
–The New York Times
“These are beautifully written novels: not only fresh, original, and fast-paced, but full of wonderful characters with real heart.”
His Majesty’s Dragon
“Enthralling reading–it’s like Jane Austen playing Dungeons & Dragons with Eragon’s Christopher Paolini.”
“A gripping adventure full of rich detail and the impossible wonder of gilded fantasy.”
“A thrilling fantasy . . . All hail Naomi Novik.”
–The Washington Post Book World
BACK PANEL (cont’d)VICTORY OF EAGLESSUMMER 2008 (HC)
Empire of Ivory
“Novik’s influences run the gamut from Jane Austen to Patrick O’Brian, with a side trip through Anne McCaffrey. Her books are completely involving and probably addictive, their central conceit explored in clever detail with a great deal of wit and historical insight.”
–San Francisco Chronicle
“So realistic that it drowns disbelief . . . first-class in every respect.”
–Booklist (starred review)
