Shelf Awareness starred review for I Am Princess X

I Am Princess X by Cherie Priest

“In her first novel for young adults, Cherie Priest (Boneshaker) introduces Libby Deaton and May Harper, who unite to create the comics character Princess X. The story quickly becomes a gripping mystery after Libby mysteriously disappears and May becomes obsessed with finding her…In a clever innovation, Priest seamlessly integrates Kali Ciesemier’s comics within the prose narrative. Each new episode of Princess X reveals further clues and a terrifying reality for their creator. Ciesemier’s portrait of Princess X achieves a sense of both anxiety and bravery. Priest demonstrates that creative teamwork of the kind shared by Libby and May leads to an intimate knowledge of one’s collaborator.” — Shelf Awareness, Starred Review

Locus on Of Noble Family by Mary Robinette Kowal (again)

Of Noble Family by Mary Robinette Kowal

“Of Noble Family, book five of Mary Robinette Kowal’s “The Glamourist Histories,” concludes the sequence with emphatic proof that her world-building and her characters can’t be constrained by the standard tropes of alternate-historic magical fantasies or variations on Regency Romance.” — Locus
