Nikita Gill's poetry excels in its exploration of womanhood * The Independent *
Whether you're completely clued up on Greek mythology or are a newcomer, Nikita Gill outlines the tales of Medusa, Circe, and Athena, to name a few, in stunningly beautiful prose. This will be one of the most entertaining history lessons you've ever had. * Bustle *
Nikita's words are as powerful as they are beautiful. Her poems mix ideas that are both ancient and timeless, and somehow she makes them urgent. Her voice is one of the most compelling, compassionate and creative in contemporary literature. She's the writer we all need to read right now - she's challenging a fearful era with real love. -- Daisy Buchanan
This empowering collection sheds light on women who are often misunderstood and is a piece of "modern feminist magic." * BOOKRIOT *
