Product description


Wow! A dark and dangerous tale, a world like no other and heroism of the weirdest kind! -New York Times bestselling author Tamora Pierce

Utterly original. Amanda Foody has a wicked imagination. If you enjoy your fantasy on the darker side, then you will love Gomorrah! -Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval

Amanda Foody's stunning debut is full of velvety language, intricate worldbuilding, and a story that treads the fine line of horror and fantasy. This is the kind of read that makes your spine shiver, and your heart beat faster. -Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen

I love the vivid, sumptuous world Amanda Foody has created: Sorina's magic, her illusionary family and the Gomorrah Festival make for a wildly inventive mystery I won't soon forget. -Virginia Boecker, author of The Witch Hunter series

Magic, murder, and mayhem abound in Foody's debut. -Kirkus

The richly drawn backdrop and imaginative fantasy world allow the author to thoughtfully explore complex issues such as what makes someone real and how we should treat people who are different. -School Library Journal

Amanda Foody's deliciously dark and magical whodunit has world-building so rich, the reader (like visitors to Gomorrah) is likely to leave with a hangover. -Shelf Awareness

Debut author Foody's colorful setting is vast-filled with magic, political intrigue, and the potential to grow. -Publishers Weekly

Gomorrah makes for a fantastic, magical setting, a seedy mix of titillation and sin... Readers who enjoyed their whirl in Garber's Caraval will want to get in line for entry to Gomorrah. -Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
