“. . . like all of Vera’s stories—strange, poignant, and exquisite. . . . her novel about a world without color—strange when what she writes is so colorful.”

Marion Zimmer Bradley

“In Lords of Rainbow, a current of liquid prosody carries us deep into the heart of an exotic city—and deep into the heart of an extraordinary woman. But every character is a vibrant revelation in this luscious, variegated realm of light and shadow. All emotion rings true in this place, and all truths shine with prismatic complexity. At once brutal and tender, transcendent and visceral, Nazarian’s lush fable enthralls.”

Terry McGarry, author of Illumination

“Vera Nazarian’s second novel, Lords of Rainbow, is a delight, full of the rich imagery, the humor, lyricism, adventure, insight, and delicious eastern fairy tale flavor that readers first met in Dreams of the Compass Rose. Nazarian gives us a tale wove out of color—unpredictable, funny, wise, and always entertaining. She’s a talent to watch.”

Sherwood Smith, author of Crown Duel

“Nazarian’s world is not a typical fantasy setting—it’s set in a world that didn’t know color until the appearance of a strange new sun. Her story is filled with adventure but it also works on a much less physical level, with very strong characterization and an almost poetic feel to the prose . . . I suspect that weeks from now the images that I retain will be from Nazarian’s bizarre otherworld.”
