The Troupe has made the Tor.com list of reviewer’s picks of 2012! SFF World reviewer Rob Bedford said of it:
On every level, this novel blew me away. Vaudeville, traveling artists, hints of Paradise Lost; this one had it all. Elements of the novel reminded me of the film Gangs of New York while other elements reminded me of King’s Dark Tower saga with other resonances to Neil Gaiman’s fiction.
