Praise and Reviews:
"An outstanding novel that appreciates full how to entertain and intrigue, and yet not shirk the big issues the story raises. The storytelling here will keep you on the edge of your seat. I emerged from the final page of Camera Obscura exhausted by the experience, but with a definite smile on my face. It was an incredibly fun read, expertly written and immersive on an almost dangerous level."- Ramblings of a Borderline Misanthrope
"Camera Obscura is dark, violent, and a fine steampunk thriller that'll stick to your ribs in a way other thrillers don't. It's stuffed to the gills with action and plot... the world-building is deftly done. And Tidhar's Milady de Winter is fantastic. If you like steampunk or just action in general, it's well worth a read."- The Literary Omnivore
"The reader certainly suffers along with the character. At the same time, the characters never cease to be fascinating and I found myself intrigued by the settings, which become characters in themselves. From the underwater squid-like dwellings of Scab to the Little China of Paris, each location is richly detailed, dripping with nuances and characters which bring it to life. It's easy to feel 'there' along with Milady throughout her journey."- SF Signal
