From the Publisher"Sergey and Marina Dyachenko’s The Scar blends the simplicity of a parable with the complexity and richness of a Russian novel."
"Rich, vivid, tactile prose, with a solid yet unpredictable plot—and an extraordinary depth and intensity of character reminiscent of the finest Russian literature. A truly spellbinding work even audiences jaded by standard U.S./U.K. fantasy will devour."
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Reminiscent of Patricia McKillip's fairy-tale style, this elegant debut by a husband-and-wife team from Kiev combines the somber beauty of Russian literature with the allegoric power of a traditional folk tale. The theme of the double-edged nature of curses should appeal to readers outside the fantasy genre.”
“…An unorthodox story fringed with magic, romance, secret societies, and whispers of the end of time.”
