"An effervescent blend of revisionist history, fantasy and science fiction." * The Washington Post *
"As well as being a profound mediation on history and the need to defend democracy, Paris Adrift is also a gorgeous evocation of youth and growing up... a celebration of that particular moment in our lives, when we feel those connections all the more strongly because we know on some level they will come to an end." -- Fantasy Faction * Fantasy Faction *
"Paris Adrift is a different type of time travel book, one I hope to see more of, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Paris, the fear for the future, and traveling into the unknown. Be sure to check out the other stops on the tour!" -- Utopia State of Mind * Utopia State of Mind *
"Swift (the Osiris Project series) delivers both an unusual take on time travel and solid characters, including a fantastic protagonist." * Publisher's Weekly *
"Paris Adrift is a really cool book. It's Skins meet time travel." -- British Fantasy Society * British Fantasy Society *
"Swift's prose is well crafted, and her characters breathe a sort of gap-year-encounters-larger-than-reality hallucinogenic life: vivid, foreign, and faintly exotic to middle-class English girl Hallie." -- Liz Bourke * Locus *
"A glittering novel of time travel that you'll want to devour like a mille-feuille in one single bite. I loved it." -- Lavie Tidhar
"A very enjoyable read." -- Fortean Times * Fortean Times *
