Girls of Paper and Fire is as lush-and brutal-as the Demon King's own court. Ngan is a stunning new talent.-- "Kiersten White, author of As I Darken"
Lei and Wren's romance unfolds tenderly...and their wonder at finding love in such a terrible place rings true...[All] lead[s] to a terrifically nail-biting cliffhanger, setting all the pieces in play for a combustible sequel.-- "Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"
Lush...a novel you need to read.-- "Shondaland.com"
Ideal for those seeking diverse LGBTQ fantasy stories.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
In this rich fantasy...Ngan's plot is tense and tight, her action sequences are elegant and adrenaline-soaked, and her story's stakes increase exponentially through the pulse-pounding conclusion. She champions self-empowerment while condemning classism, homophobia, and the commod-i-fication of women. What most distinguishes this book, though, is how incisively and intoxicatingly Ngan writes about love.-- "Publishers Weekly (stared review)"
About the Author
Natasha Ngan is part young-adult author, part yoga teacher, part habitual nap-taker. She grew up between Malaysia and the UK, speaking Chinese with her mother mainly as a way to talk about people without them understanding. She studied geography at the University of Cambridge and later worked as a fashion blogger, social media consultant, and freelance writer. She moved to Paris, where she likes to imagine she drifts stylishly from brasserie to brasserie, notepad in one hand and wineglass in the other, but in reality she mostly spends her time lost on the metro and offending locals with her French.
