Praise For Beneath the Citadel

**STARRED REVIEW**
"The dynamics of friendship, nuanced LGBTQIA+ characters, and political story lines will encourage readers to read to the very end. Soria’s stand-alone fantasy novel will resonate with fans of Mackenzi Lee’s The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” series."


"The premise, based around "infallible prophecies," raises interesting questions about free will . . . This is a thrilling adventure story."


"This tale of friendship, political intrigue, power, and love is a delight. Soria (Iron Cast, 2016) gives readers characters to invest in, and a situation to trigger conversation without the overblown, overinvolved writing of some fantasies."


"The four protagonists are drawn in strong lines, their personalities bold and distinct with some swoony romance between the two boys and welcome diversity regarding body shape and sexuality . . . readers will be able to follow the twists and turns through to the satisfying conclusion."


"Get lost in this strange, dark world where a really smart girl and her friends may save the future, or the past."
