The Glass God by Kate Griffin (2013, Paperback) Magicals Anonymous #2
Sharon Li: apprentice shaman and community support officer for the magically inclined.
“I’m fully convinced that Kate Griffin is a literary sorceress. She weaves the most intricate spells with clever, artful, snarky, luxurious prose, characters who are both painfully human and gloriously badass, and settings so magical you forget they’re real places. When I get my hands on a new Kate Griffin book I put down everything else. She’s just that good.”―N.K. Jemisin
“London’s magic has seldom if ever been brought to life so electrifyingly and convincingly.”―Mike Carey on A Madness of Angels
“Griffin’s lush prose and chatty dialogue…create a wonderful ambiance.”―Publishers Weekly on A Madness of Angels
“Griffin’s novel mixes fantasy and reality into a plot that brings to mind Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere.”―RT Book Reviews on A Madness of Angels
“Wonderful. This utterly charming protagonist easily elevates Griffin’s second magical London series above the urban fantasy crowd.”―Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)
“Griffin does it again: In this outstanding follow-up to the excellent Stray Souls… the characters are so unique and enjoyable quirky.”―RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Griffin has delivered another example of urban fantasy at it’s best.”―Library Journal
