A dark and characterful fantasy, blending gritty murder mystery and class struggles in a luxurious Dickensian setting.
A fascinating, fun page-turner with rich world-building and a unique spin on romance.
Secondary world Victorian setting makes it a perfect fit for fans of Under the Pendulum Sun, The Sisters Mederos and The Ingenious
“This is first and foremost a thoroughly entertaining novel… The convincing setting, engaging characters and an artfully devised plot all combine to give these particular fantasy themes a vivid freshness.”
– Juliet E. McKenna for Interzone Magazine
“The Resurrectionist of Caligo plays with genre in an intriguing and clever way. There are horror elements mixed with fantasy, colonial critique, and class commentary, all blended into a book that is a pleasure to read.”
“I loved the characters, the world-building, the tight plot and the emotional payoff. One of my favorites of the summer!”
– Patrice Sarath, author of The Sisters Mederos and Fog Season
“A striking portrayal of the society from the gutters to the royal palace, as gaudy and vivid as a Hogarth print in its writing about the underbelly of society and living there. The characters were utterly human, trying to do their best in a world which was far from perfect, and the conclusion left me wanting more.”
– Genevieve Cogman, author of The Invisible Library
“The Resurrectionist of Caligo is gothic fantasy in the extreme. Its pages are packed with fog shrouded streets, eerie blood magic, grave-robbing, court intrigue, bitter rivalries, shattered hearts, faded dreams, elegant clothing, and perhaps the strangest literary mushrooms since Alice in Wonderland.”
– Dan Stout, author of Titanshade
“The world of Resurrectionist is tantalisingly real, the prose is breathlessly witty, and the characters are impossible to avoid loving (or loathing, in a few noteworthy cases). If you’ve ever called yourself a goth, played 7th Sea, or wished that Pride & Prejudice had magical ink-bees in it, you need this book.”
– Tyler Hayes, author of The Imaginary Corpse
“Trimoboli and Zaloga skillfully deliver a debut that uses alchemy to combine scientific logic, magical elements, and a whodunnit that gives off Sherlock Holmes-ian, gaslamp vibes. The novel is artfully written from dual perspectives but with one fluid style, and will appeal to readers of sf, fantasy, and historical mystery, or those who just can’t choose.”
“Wendy Trimboli and Alicia Zaloga build their world with meticulous care, and the plotting is rich and cunning…a story and characters to savour, in a world painted in vivid detail.”
– SFX Magazine
“Sells itself on a single sentence.”
