"Superlatives seem superfluous. Instead… wow. Just—wow."
"[A] brain-bending combo of angelic cosmogony, high-level physics, and meta-noir… The result is both dazzling and dark, and more than a little quirky."
"A tour de force… Tregillis solidifies his place as a brilliant voice in the genre."—RT Book Reviews (4.5 stars, Top Pick)
"A beautiful homage to Chandler."
"Addictively brilliant… Ian Tregillis' Something More Than Night is one of those books that manages to be both clever and exciting—you want to pause to admire all the brilliant ideas he's tossing around, but you have to keep turning pages to see how it'll turn out…Thrilling as well as poignant."
"A masterwork with more layers than you realize at first."
"With Milkweed, Tregillis showed himself to be a literary chameleon… Now, with Something More Than Night, he changes voice yet again, and with excellent effect."
—Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing
"Tregillis combines his incredible prose, and [a] stunningly complex world filled with unforgettable characters to create something new, nuanced, and different. This book is impossible to put down, and is an incredibly fast mover… Something More Than Night shows Tregillis at his finest."

"Evanescently poetic—really startingly beautiful in parts… [Tregillis] delivers completely, providing a tightly constructed fantasy that flings itself forward with style and substance."
"With the combination of a fascinating story, superior wit, and a traditional hard-boiled detective fiction plot swerve at the end, 'Something More Than Night' makes for an all-around great read."
"Jaw-dropping prose… The story is deft, heartfelt, gloriously complicated even as it falls into the rhythms of classic noir… The stuff dreams are made of."
"This book. This amazing, beautiful, brilliant book. If you’re anything like me (a ravenous devourer of books), you have, in your lifetime of reading, come across That Book: the book that you would sell your [insert invaluable possession] to have written. Not because it’s famous or because it would have made you lots of money, but because it is so exquisite that the mere thought that something so wonderful could have come out of your brain is enough to almost make you weep. For me, this is one of those books."
