Praise for the River into Darkness duology

"A strange and beautiful book that offers an unusual depth and nuance of character, set forth in lustrous dialogue and prose the texture of honeyed silk." —Kirkus Reviews

"Set in an imaginary land where magic is on the wane, this is a traditional quest fantasy of the best sort: where the quests are spiritual and person in nature as well as heroic.... Book by book, Russell is emerging as one of the best fantasists of his generation." —Year's Best Fantasy and Horror

"Sean Russell has captured the atmosphere and the ethos of a truly magical time." —SF Site
