Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I loved the intensity of flaws each character possessed. There wasn’t a single soul (or nonsoul) in this story who didn’t have some gigantic flaws and they seemed ripe for the pickin’ and boy does Chuck know how to do it."
-Bite My Book

The Blue Blazes is a fun, fast-paced novel that blends the best of noir, a Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual, and melodrama into something special.
-Fantasy Faction

"So if you need something dark, gritty, and fun, I recommend The Blue Blazes."
-Three Crow Press 

“Wendig has taken the cast of Goodfellas and dragged them, kicking and screaming into a fantasy reality of New York, opened up the playground and let them run loose”
-Wilder's Book Review

“punchy dialog, snappy prose, and a gritty narrative voice”
-Odd Engine

“imaginative, funny, profound, tough, and poetic all at once”
-Elf Machines from Hyperspace

"In the end, The Blue Blazes is a blast, an awesome, smartly written novel that far exceeds the sum of its parts"
-Rob Bedford, SFFWorld

"…a heart-stopping ride from beginning to end. I think it is my stand out book of the year..."
-Jane, Book Chick City

"Rounded off with an emotional finale, The Blue Blazes is a serious contender for book of the year."
-Alister, Starburst Magazine

"It’s a brilliantly imagined world, as ick-inducing as it is, and it’s easy to see Mookie’s place in it."
-Vampire Book Club

I loved it. Very imaginative storyline. Loved the characters, loved the in-your-face conflict and action, and oddly...disturbingly, found myself half in love with Mookie by the end of the book. Nicely done! Can't wait to read more by this author.
