Ifan Morgan Jones
'I'm hooked on Ifan Morgan Jones's latest masterpiece, my first taste of Welsh steampunk.'
'Experimental and very timely - a call for us to see the word afresh and, at a time of desperate need, to dare to re-imagine it.'
O'r Pedwar Gwynt
'Deryn Rees-Jones shows us that in the right hands lyric is the sharpest, subtlest and most devastating instrument we possess'
'If there has ever been a work that deserves re-reading, revisiting and discovering again and again until all the circles reveal themselves, this is it.'
'A novel that intoxicates, but you had better be able to handle the hangover.'
Damian Walford Davies
'When much new poetry looks no further than the poet's naval, this kind of imaginative leap is a tonic.'
'Profound... with flashes of his distinctive playfulness.'
'Compulsively readable sophisticated, and keenly alert.'
The New York Times
'Fierce and compassionate... Three brilliantly realised characters, finely drawn and entirely believable.'
Mail on Sunday
'A mysterious, dream-like story, delicately-written and with a disturbing undertow.'
'Impressively layered and packed with puzzles and riddles to pore over and revisit.'
