"Kakistocracy balances hard choices with humor, deadly threats with wit, and grief with optimism... [A]n easy read that provokes laughter throughout, but surprises with its serious themes and meaningful contemplations of friendship, loyalty, and bravery"
"Kakistocracy is one hell of a ride through both this realm and the next, with an engrossing plot and an all-too-real (and hysterically funny) protagonist as your narrator."
"[A]nother fun, fast-paced adventure in an alternate New York City. Conrad Brent has grown but is still the irreverent contrarian that we loved from the first book. Kakistocracy deepens Conrad’s world and gives readers the feeling that Shvartsman’s story is just starting to hit its stride. Highly Recommended."
"A fantasy world so close you can touch it."

"Magical mayhem, sinister plots, and mysterious new forces collide in this fantastic work of fantasy. I loved every minute of it!"
