Last week, the fantasy novel The Court of the Air was one of trade bible's the Bookseller's featured SFF novels, this week it's the Bookseller’s Choice.
This is an extract of what the Bookseller said about the book in this week's issue: ‘A crossover title in the vein of Philip Pullman … more straightforward and much easier to read than Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell … a genuinely engaging read, which has believable characters in a fantastic setting. The Dickensian references are a big selling point… It’s an intriguing and original idea which the author has managed to pull off rather well.’
The Bookseller magazine has been the main trade publication of the UK book industry for 140 years.
