praise for the series . . .

I enjoyed [Sweet Scent] very much, and [I liked] Cold Kiss just as much, maybe more. [It] is a book with a lot of emotional depth, as Genny discovers a lot of truths about her life and the people around her. There’s treachery, body-switching, and life and death encounters in this action-packed novel. A story well-told.
CHARLAINE HARRIS, author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, now filmed as TRUE BLOOD

Doesn't so much break the rules of urban fantasy as take them apart and reconstruct them in a gloriously pyrotechnic display. Just keeps getting better and better.
Ben Aaronovitch, Sunday Times Bestselling author of the Rivers of London series

[R]ich and engaging . . . McLeod uses her gift for storytelling to deliver a truly terrific read [in The Bitter Seed of Magic] that is certain to keep you perched on the edge of your seat until the very last page.

Suzanne McLeod's London is filled with magic, fantastic creatures, forbidden secrets, and dangerous desires. The Cold Kiss of Death takes you down those streets, on a fast, twisty-turny ride that will keep you glued to the pages to the very end.
DEVON MONK, author of the Allie Beckstrom urban fantasy series

I really loved The Sweet Scent of Blood. The interactions among the magical cast are beautifully handled, and Genny's narrative voice is perfect. A great read, and a great world which I'm looking forward to revisiting.
MIKE CAREY Author of the Felix Castor novels; & writer for Marvel & DC comics

I loved [The Sweet Scent of Blood] to pieces . . . a splendid first novel, and a damned good read. Fast and furious, funny and fae, the first Spellcrackers book is a cracker of a read.
