"Man-eating hippo mayhem is my new favorite mayhem. Gailey's debut is a gift of violent, unexpected glee and I can't wait for more capers with Winslow Houndstooth and Ruby the stealth hippo." --Kevin Hearne, New York Times bestselling author
"This hippopotamus epic is just as preposterously fun as you could possibly have hoped -- but it's also a brave, clever alternate history. River of Teeth packs one hell of a gold-plated bite." --Charlie Jane Anders, author of All the Birds in the Sky
"Weird and wonderful, River of Teeth proves handily why Sarah Gailey is a writer to watch." --Chuck Wendig, New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Aftermath and Invasive
"Blisteringly imaginative, and written with a sly, sharp wit." --Kate Elliott
"A rowdy, rollicking river ride from a sly and whimsical new writer. A damned fine adventure for everyone. And I haven't even mentioned the hippos yet. Get reading." --Kameron Hurley, Hugo Award-winning author of Mirror Empire and The Geek Feminist Revolution
"River of Teeth is a wonderfully original debut." --NPR
"This is a thing I now know about Sarah Gailey: she is a word-magician who can render searing touch on a flat page and suspend disbelief flawlessly. The world of River of Teeth feels vast, and navigable due to her skill. The characters within, deep and yet intimately knowable." --Fran Wilde, Nebula-nominated, Andre Norton- and Compton Crook-winning author of Updraft and Cloudbound
"I love Sarah Gailey's River of Teeth. It is sexy and raucous and wild and beautiful and violent--aka, everything I've ever wanted from a lawless caper through the American West. Gailey's storytelling is clever and top-notch, and River of Teeth will leave you with adrenaline humming through your veins. I can't recommend this highly enough." --Alyssa Wong, Nebula Award-winning author of "Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers"
