We are beyond honored (and more than a little giddy) to have received a Kirkus star for our debut novel, Things They Buried. We were hoping for a good review—receiving a star was an amazing surprise.
Our favorite bits:
King and Swanson’s debut sci-fi/fantasy novel uses dazzling worldbuilding and a hodgepodge of characters, cultures, and fantastic species to tell a powerful, human story. … The worldbuilding is nearly flawless in its execution, which will entice readers to immerse themselves in the story and acclimate themselves to its strangeness as they go. … The intriguing plot makes excellent use of its primary characters, resulting in a breathtaking, harmonious read.
An empathetic, complex, and offbeat tale.
Thanks to all of our cheerleaders, family and friends, readers and reviewers. You’ve kept us excited and inspired.
Watch for our follow-up novel, They Eat Their Own, coming in early 2020.
