"The novel thrives when depicting the bizarre and dangerous: cocoon-sleeping slug women; mummy butlers that are falling apart; vengeful corpse eaters; and even the heroes’ closest ally, a green-skinned tomboy."- Kirkus Reviews
"The beginning of a Harry Potter–esque series for those who prefer gross-out horror to magical whimsy." - Kirkus Reviews
