Review:

"Benioff blends tense adventure, a bittersweet coming-of-age, and an oddly touching buddy narrative to craft a smart crowd-pleaser....Hard to put down." (starred review)

Review:

"[David Benioff] shifts tone with perfect control--no recent novel I've read travels so quickly and surely between registers, from humor to devastation."
