Praise for the Amberlough Dossier

Amberloughselected Nebula finalist for Best Novel & Lambda Literary Award Finalist for Best SFFH Novel

ForAmnesty:

“Set in a vibrant Art Deco milieu, Donnelly’s characters smoke, drink, meet clandestinely, scheme, and doublecross, trying to make the best of circumstances that require a series of unenviable compromises. Amnesty attempts, after systematically stripping away all its characters’ pretenses, to answer the question: Can spies ever really come in from the cold? A fitting finale for the series; the experience of reading it is somewhat like watching an elegant train wreck in progress and wondering if there will be any survivors.” —Booklist

ForArmistice:

“Bracing [and] timely...Donnelly has successfully built upon her intricate, lush world of passionate spies and turncoats, and each character leaps off the page in this satisfying novel that succeeds on both grand an intimate scales.”Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Donnelly returns readers to the world ofAmberlough(2017) in this sequel, in which the fallout of a fascist regime's triumph continues to haunt those who escaped it...or who thought they had. [For] readers who enjoy luxuriating in the book's rich prose, sharp dialogue, and detailed interpersonal histories.”Kirkus Reviews

ForAmberlough:

“James Bond by way of Oscar Wilde.” —Holly Black

“Donnelly blends romance and tragedy, evoking gilded-age glamour and the thrill of a spy adventure, in this impressive debut. As heartbreaking as it is satisfying.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Donnelly’s striking debut brings a complex world of politics, espionage, and cabaret life to full vision. The emotional journeys of the characters as they struggle to survive in a society under siege by dark forces will strike a chord with readers as they race to the story’s conclusion.” —Library Journal, starred review, Debut of the Month

“A tightly woven and diverse cast of spies, criminals, cabaret bohemians, and lovers struggles to save what matters to each of them against a tide of rising fascism and violence in Donnelly's debut novel, set in a vaguely 1920s milieu….A sense of inevitable loss and futility permeates this rich drama. The fascists may never be defeated but only escaped—if the characters are willing to abandon the people they love.” —Kirkus Reviews

"Amberlough grabbed me from the first page. It is beautiful, all too real, and full of pain. Read it. It will change you."—Hugo Award-winning author Mary Robinette Kowal

"An astonishing first novel!"—World Fantasy Award-winning author Ellen Kushner

"Sparkling with slang, full of riotous characters, and dripping with intrigue,Amberlough is a dazzling romp through a tumultuous, ravishing world."—Robert Jackson Bennett, winner of the Shirley Jackson Award and the Edgar Award

"It’s a terrific novel. Very Evelyn Waugh meets The Sandbaggers.”—John Chu, Hugo-award winning author

"A peach softens and grows sweeter until it reaches a fragile state, lasting only about six hours, during which it's actually better than perfect--and then it goes off, it's gone, it's through. InAmberloughDonnelly takes us to a city and culture just tipping from this pluperfect moment. What a rich and melancholy book; so tragic, so gay!" —Kai Ashante Wilson, author ofSorcerer of the Wildeepsand the Nebula & World Fantasy finalist for "The Devil in America"

“This is the book we need right now.Amberlough is a gorgeous, crucial reminder that even when the Fascists take over, people will fight back - no matter how flawed or frightened or damaged they might be, or how much they risk by doing so.” —Sam J. Miller, finalist for the Nebula, World Fantasy, and Theodore Sturgeon Awards and winner of the Shirley Jackson Award

Amberlough offers a sharp, lush, sensual espionage Cabaret, a Weimar world of lovers, criminals and spies all floating toward the fire.”—Max Gladstone, LAMBDA Literary Award finalist

"Intrigue and passions intertwine inAmberlough – A city on the edge of political upheaval, glittering with decadence and riddled with spies! Be careful or you too will be lost in the whirl of the kind of glamour familiar in 1930s Shanghai or Weimar-era Berlin. Donnelley's debut is powerfully seductive and wrenching."—Fran Wilde, author ofUpdraft

"A glittering cabaret of a novel, with show-stopping language on every page." —Lev AC Rosen, author ofDepth

“Holy cow—this book is sharp, queer, sexy, and positively eviscerating. It's Cabaret meets spy novel in a lushly imagined fictional city, and a terrifyingly topical tale of fascism's rise. It's a brilliantly realized gut-punch. Highly recommended!”—James L. Sutter, co-creator of the Pathfinder RPG series

"Lust and betrayal, intrigue and treachery, feints within feints within feints—Amberlough will keep readers up late into the night. I look forward to more adventures from Lara Elena Donnelly." —D.B. Jackson, author of the Thieftaker Chronicles

"Amberlough is the stiletto-sharp tale of an intelligence agent caught between corrupt handlers, a rising fascist regime, and his doomed passion for the notorious star of a sizzling underworld nightclub. Sexy and suspenseful, with characters who play for keeps, Donnelly's debut novel mixes secrets, spying, and outlawed love like a perfectly made cocktail... one that seduces before hitting you with an unforgettable kick." —A.M. Dellamonica, LAMBDA Literary Award finalist forChild of a Hidden Sea
