– Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Phoenix Extravagant is a book containing ruminations on imperialism, the function and sanctity of art, acculturation, and the morality of love. It also contains a bloody big and unexpectedly adorable mechanical dragon."
– Jonathan L. Howard, author of the Johannes Cabal books
