Yesterday was the book launch day for King of Shards. And while I was busy getting ready for my book release party that evening, I discovered that NPR reviewed King of Shards.
Reviewer Jason Heller says of the book:
“A fantastic twist on Jewish mythology…a radical reinvention of Jewish faith and folklore, not to mention the portal fantasy…”One city’s rubble is the next city’s foundation,” Kressel writes. Not only does that simple, profound idea underpin King of Shards‘ plot, it’s the method to the book’s majestic, resonant, reality-twisting madness.”
He gives the book a thorough critique; this is NPR of course. And overall, it’s a very positive review from a nationally syndicated news site and radio program! I couldn’t be happier.
