“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.”
“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."
