Review

Praise for Siren Queen:

A Best of May Pick by Amazon | Apple Books | Indie Next | B&N Booksellers | LibraryReads | TIME Magazine | The Philadelphia Inquirer!

“In this stellar novel, Vo turns Hollywood into a fairyland―the kind from the old stories, sharp and dangerous―and
laces the sparkling silver romance of the movies with a dark, exploitative, hungry greed. . . . Pair that vivid world with the stubborn, passionate Luli and a pace that turns from slow and delightfully sexy to vast and terrifying with the turn of a page and you have the brilliantly searing Siren Queen.”―Booklist (starred review)

Vo’s spellbinding latest solidifies her position as a force to be reckoned with in speculative fiction. [Her] hypnotic prose blends metaphor with magic so seamlessly that reality itself becomes slippery. Her dazzling voice, evocative scene setting, and ambitious protagonist make this a knockout.”―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Movie magic is made manifest, beguiling, and deadly in Vo’s tale about Luli, a Chinese American girl who is determined to realize her dreams of movie stardom. . . . Luli is a compelling character both on and off the screen in this story that takes the mythmaking of Hollywood and transforms it and her into something transcendent. Highly recommended."―Library Journal (starred review)

“Searing and seductive,
Siren Queen is the kind of book that leaves you wrecked on its shores. When I look up at the stars, I'll think of Luli.”―Alix E. Harrow, New York Times-bestselling author of The Once and Future Witches

Nghi Vo has become one of my favorite writers, and Siren Queen is lush and brilliant, a mesmerizing journey into a pre-code Hollywood that is all sharp edges, with the darkest magic and highest stakes.”―Martha Wells, author of Network Effect

"
A piece of perfection. It is queer and it is unapologetic and it is loving and it is a reminder that we can survive our demons, that we can outsmart them, that we can beat them at their own game."―Cassandra Khaw, USA Today bestselling author of Nothing But Blackened Teeth

"Vo imagines the golden age of Hollywood as full of fey and dangerous creatures ready to claim your soul in exchange for fame on the big screen. . . .
This book kept me up reading until the late hours."―Rebecca Roanhorse, New York Times bestselling author of Black Sun

“The book of my dreams―
vivid, sensual, frightening, and inexpressibly gorgeous, often in the same sentence. . . . Nghi Vo is a magician―no―maybe a god.”―Kelly Robson, author of Gods, Monsters & the Lucky Peach
