Críticas:

"With characters that will inspire the imagination, a plot that nods to history while defying accuracy, and a love story that promises more in the second book, this is sure to attract feminist readers and romantics alike."--"Booklist, " starred review "Fiction and history coalesce in a rich, ripping tale of assassinations, political intrigue and religion in 15th-century Brittany. ...LaFevers' ambitious tapestry includes poison and treason and murder, valor and honor and slow love, suspense and sexuality and mercy. A page-turner--with grace." --"Kirkus", starred review "LaFevers is an artful storyteller who has created a strong lead character....The tale is one of scheming nobles, political subterfuge, murder, and romance--all of the best aspects of a good read. And like any good mystery, the plot is unpredictable." --VOYA "Rich in historical detail, well-realized characters, political machinations, and enticingly prickly scenes between Ismae and Duval, LaFevers's complex tale incorporates magic both sparingly and subtly. This powerful first volume of the His Fair Assassin series should attract many readers."--"Publishers Weekly, "starred review "The book is well written and filled with fascinating, complex characters who function realistically in this invented medieval world."--"School Library Journal, "starred review "Readers will immediately warm to Ismae's determination to think for herself despite the powerfl influences of multiple others."--"Bulletin"
