Just amazing, outstanding un-put-down-able Guardian (2011-04-25)
The experienced fantasy reader will be able to tick off all the aspects you'd expect . . . This isn't helped by Canavan's characters being poorly drawn. The Bookbag (2009-02-01)
Maybe this book, and especially the feminist subplot, would have been more interesting . . . but the problems with pacing, flat characters, and overbearing political message left me wanting to quit half way through. Fantasy Literature (2010-01-09)
Unpolished, unsophisticated, unsatisfying—and unlikely to deter Canavan’s fans. Kirkus (2010-06-24)
