“Dizzyingly wonderful . . . Collins summons a Gormenghast-esque richness of place and people . . . a perfectly constructed work of fiction, with audacious twists that clumsier hands would fumble, and irresistibly moving emotional beats. . . . Nabokov called fiction a “game of worlds”, and Collins plays her own game here with perfect skill.”
"Another sumptuous act of imaginative world-building. . . .  If you’re looking for an absorbing, transporting work of fiction—and why would you not be?—The Betrayals is just the thing . . . settle in, and enjoy getting lost in this captivating book."
"Ingenious . . . Collins’s story holds everything up its sleeve for as long as possible."
"Brilliant . . . a captivating, imaginative tale."
"A unique, unexpected and beautifully unsettling story . . . gorgeously beguiling and totally addictive."
"More lavish magical escapism from the unit-shifting author of The Binding."
"She’s done it again: this is another triumph from the incomparable imagination of Bridget Collins. The Betrayals sinks its teeth into you and won’t let you go. It’s a mesmerising, intimate and ambitious story about art, love and what it means to be human. If you loved The Binding, you’ll adore The Betrayals."
"It’s just beautiful —written with such elegance and poise. What I love about Bridget's books is her ability to write the most magical worlds of escapism and yet anchor those worlds very much in today."
The Betrayals is a beautiful dystopian romance about coming of age as an artist and the love affair artistic collaboration can be, while also being an acute political novel about the fate of spiritual values in a totalitarian system. A rich delight."
The Binding is a dark chocolate slice of cake with a surprising, satisfying seam of raspberry running through it. It is a rich, gothic entertainment that explores what books have trapped inside them and reminds us of the power of storytelling. Spellbinding.”
The Binding held me captive from the start and refused to set me free. It’s a beautifully crafted tale of dark magic and forbidden passion, where unspeakable cruelty is ultimately defeated by enduring love. Breathtaking!”
“Pure magic. The kind of immersive storytelling that makes you forget your own name. I wish I had written it.”
“Truly spellbinding... Many readers of The Binding will simply sink gratefully into the pleasures of its pages, because, like all great fables, it also functions as transporting romance.”
“More of an experience than a book, written with such grace and wisdom. Utterly brilliant.”
“An original concept, beautifully written. Collins’ prose is spellbinding.”
“A captivating fantasy novel with forbidden love at its heart.”
“A moving, spellbinding book with a powerful love story at its heart and one of the best twists I’ve read in a long time. I fell into and inhabited and loved it. Such a deeply enjoyable and nourishing novel.”
“Intriguing, thought-provoking and heartbreaking … what a gorgeous book.”
“What an astounding book … something entirely of its own. Brilliant concept, truly extraordinary writing and a killer plot.”
“Beguiling and mysterious … dark and atmospheric … The Binding is the kind of novel that practically demands fireside reading.”
“Intense, immersive. . . . A stirring, highly original piece of storytelling and world-making.”
“A real treat . . . gothic, imaginative and dark.”
“Using evocative language to express a lovingly told tale of lost memories, Collins wraps her story of a passionate, forbidden relationship in mystery and magic.”
The Binding is an imaginative, thought-provoking tale of how—for better and worse—moments can define who we become.”
“Bookbinders capture souls in this fantasy’s bleak Dickensian world. The novel’s most horrifying victim is the starving mother who doesn’t recognize her children because she had to sell her memories of them.”
