MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Sean Grigsby "An ingenious premise that Grigsby delivers on with intelligence and style. Smoke Eaters is a treat!" -- Jason M Hough, New York Times Bestseller "I love dragon stories in which the dragons are real monsters, laying waste to everything around them; and I love novels with protagonists who aren't callow young adults learning that they're chosen ones. Smoke Eaters has terrific dragons, and a hero with some miles and experience on him, plus great writing and a wicked sense of humor. I flew through it." - Alex Bledsoe, author of The Hum and the Shiver and Burn Me Deadly "Sean Grigsby has conceived what promises to be a brilliant and harrowing series. Dragons have returned, bringing fire, revenant spirits and ash in their wake. Cole Brannigan, a grizzled no nonsense fire-fighter, is there to stand in their way. Profane and exhilarating, filled with unforgettable characters and scorching action, Smoke Eaters is an amazing mix of adventure, fantasy, and science-fiction. Grigsby is an electrifying new voice sounding out over the wraith-haunted land." - John Hornor Jacobs, award-winning author of Southern Gods and The Incorruptibles "I've been waiting for a book like this for years. Original, exciting, Smoke Eaters is a red-hot page-turner." - Adam Christopher, author of Empire State and Made to Kill "Smoke Eaters is a thrilling, exciting, funny and strangely heart-warming book, and Grigsby's experience as a firefighter shines through on every page, lending grit and realism to this rollicking ride of a tale in which firefighters become dragon-slayers. It's exactly as bonkers - and as brilliant - as you'd expect and I look forward to more from this author." - Anna Stephens, author of Godblind "This smoking debut is a shot of adrenaline to the urban fantasy genre. Grigsby's knowledge of firefighting combined with hot dragon action and blistering humor create an irresistible romp of a read." - Jaye Wells, USA Today Bestselling author of the Prospero's War series "This red-hot debut will torch off all your skin and leave you in the burn ward. The skin grafts won't take, and you'll die of a massive infection after an agonizing month of pain unlike anything you can imagine. Also dragons." - Patrick S Tomlinson, author of Gatecrashers and Children of the Divide "This book has so many elements that I love. You've got a cast of characters, with attitude and mild superpowers, who are up against ancient monsters, robots and a corrupt government. Seriously, what's not to enjoy?" - Purple Owl Reviews "It is a freaking awesome premise that should be appealing to everyone with a pulse." - High Fever Books "It's a pretty entertaining story. Oh, did I mention there are also wraiths? And robots? And some kick-ass battles? ... the details Sean Grigsby used in the novel all ring true, thanks to his firsthand experience as a firefighter." - czuk it and czukart
