“An intriguing and compelling portrait of a city born of light and shadow, whose citizens may discover the means to cross the borders between the real and the merely possible. The author’s graceful prose and remarkable depth of characterization bring to life a tale of love and loyalty that transcends time and space.”—Library Journal (starred review)
“This is absolutely the most pleasing book Patricia A. McKillip has written in years…a swift-moving journey through a maze of truth, loss, secrets, bravery, temptation, obsession, magic, and ultimately, love.”—SF Site
“A swift, dark dream of a book…Masterfully turning old fairy tales on their heads as she pits the horrors of unchecked avarice and spells-for-hire against those very different forces, keen wits and steadfast love, McKillip maintains a delicate balance throughout Ombria in Shadows.”—Locus
“A ghostly tale of human emotions gone astray in a city that lives and dies in endless cycles…fine prose.”—Publishers Weekly
