Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author C.S.E. Cooney indulges in luxurious, dizzying fantasy

In Desdemona and the Deep, the spoiled daughter of a rich mining family must retrieve the tithe of men her father promised to the world below. On the surface, her world is rife with industrial pollution that ruins the health of poor factory workers while the idle rich indulge themselves in unheard-of luxury. Below are goblins, mysterious kingdoms, and an entirely different hierarchy.

Delightful. :-)

Delightful to read an imperious protagonist who is still sympathetic. To find all the shades of Faerie from Irish legend through the 17th century and into modern retellings. To see and be seen among the characters. And to hear: "We'll turn all these walls into doors."

A wordsmith of the highest quality

C.S.E. Cooney has done it again. She sucks you into a world of magic and creates characters so real you would swear you could meet them in this world.

To hear her read her work was a true treat. She has a fantastic theatrical voice that brings each facet of her universe into stunning clarity.

I never thought I’d say it, but I want to be a goblin now.
