From the PublisherPraise for Philippa Ballantine:
"I really enjoy this author's work! She's pretty much on my must-buy list…"
—Felicia Day, creator, writer, and star of the web series "The Guild"
Praise for Hunter and Fox:
"Ballantine has written a well-imagined novel, challenging in parts. She does not hold readers' hands through that world but, rather, trusts her storytelling ability and unfolds her world little by little as the novel advances."
—Booklist spotlight on science fiction and fantasy
"Ballantine draws readers into a fascinating new world, peopled by characters you will genuinely care about. In this first volume of the Shifted World series, she draws from classic fantasy traditions but makes them wholly her own…. Talyn is a heroine to cheer for and treasure."
—RT Book Reviews (4/5 stars: Compelling)
"[A] worthy feat of world-building, with Ballantine cleverly giving new clothes to old fantasy tropes so that those familiar trappings (recognizable only under close scrutiny) come across fresh and wondrous….a recommended read for any fantasy fan."
"[Ballantine] has more to offer than the usual fantasy author. A very complex back story is partly revealed in this book, the first in a multi-volume series, and the characters have more nuance than in most stories set in pre-industrial worlds with plenty of magic."
—San Jose Mercury News
"Writing in a rich prose style, Philippa Ballantine has created some memorable characters who must explore who they are and decide what they can become. It all builds to a wonderful cliffhanger ending and I've already ordered my copy of the next in the series."
—San Francisco Book Review
