'Smith shows great potential in this tale that opens with death and demons and propels us rapidly into divine conflict.' - Mark Lawrence, international best-selling author of The Broken Empire and Red Queen's war trilogies (Harper Collins)

'A smartly written, coming of age tale'. - A. J Dalton, international best-selling author of The Cosmic Warlords trilogy (Gollancz)
