Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
At the start of Monette's wonderful follow-up to her extraordinary fantasy debut, Melusine (2005), wizard Felix Harrowgate and his gutter-rat brother, Mildmay the Fox, assassin and cat burglar, are making their way through hostile territory to the city of Melusine. Felix believes, in a burst of bravado or sheer stubborn foolishness, that he can fix the Virtu, a magical crystal that has kept Melusine safe for centuries, and regain the good graces of the city. Since Felix's former master used Felix's magic to break the Virtu, Felix feels a personal responsibility. Mildmay, the cautious, practical half of the duo, isn't as complacent about the task. Before long, a young governess joins the party as well as two wizards, whom they rescue from being burned at the stake. Together the strangely cohesive group follows a winding path back to Melusine, the Virtu and their destiny. This sequel is every bit as original and satisfying as its predecessor.

Library Journal
Since the destruction of the artifact Virtu-central to the power of the wizards of M lusine-by his sadistic former master, wizard Felix Harrowgate has slowly recovered his sanity, broken after having had his magic stripped. Together with the former thief Mildmay the Fox, Felix journeys out of the city in search of a means of repairing the shattered orb. Monette's sequel to M lusine builds upon the distinctive personalities and voices of its two unlikely heroes and presents an engagingly intelligent fantasy that belongs in most libraries.

    Absolutely Fantastic!

    This novel is outstanding! I enjoy the way Monette narrates, both in Felix's voice and in Mildmay's. The characters are vivid and in-depth. Monette certainly has no difficulty drawing you into their story. Their blemishes, accomplishments and failures make them intriguing characters. Truly a wonderful book that I¿ve read and re-read. I¿m very excited about the upcoming third book~

    Agreat fantasy saga

    Wizard Felix Harrowgate and assassin and burglar Mildmay the Fox journey through enemy territory to Melusine. Felix believes he can repair the VIRTU, a magical crystal that has kept the city safe for centuries. He figures his success will enable him to regain his standing amidst the city¿s powerbrokers. Besides person gain, Felix feels somewhat responsible for the breakage of the VIRTU as his former master misused Felix's magic to break the crystal.-------------------- Mildmay does not share his companion¿s confidence as he assumes this is not going to prove a simple task or someone would have done it already. On the trek, a governess and two wizards that Felix and Mildmay saved from a stake burning join their journey. This quintet travels to Melusine where the Virtu and trouble await to greet them that is if they can clear away the trouble that seems to harass their every step.------------------ THE VIRTU is fantasy at its best as the audience will appreciate the two lead characters, who prove opposites make best friends as Felix is the overconfident optimist and Mildmay is the skeptical pessimist together they take that partially filled glass and cut off the empty top so that it is filled. Fans will enjoy their escapades as Sarah Monette rotates the goings on between them so that readers see even deeper how each thinks about the same incident. As with its predecessor MELUSINE,. THE VIRTU is a great fantasy saga.----------------- Harriet Klausner
