Excerpts from Reviews or References

Kirkus Book Review: Kirkus Star
A governor and his sordid past are at the heart of a tale of retribution in Amaru's stunning debut. Amaru's greatest achievement is a nonlinear story that still manages to be clean-cut and precise. The plot bounces readers from one time period to another–flashbacks sometimes occur during other flashbacks, and dream sequences meld into memories and back into real time. Despite this narrative style, the story is, surprisingly, never perplexing. The thorough examination of peoples' pasts allows for sharp, distinct characters. A gutsy book that blazes trails, plotted at breakneck speed that won't let up.
