About the Author

Alexis Hall is the mortal pen name of a wandering fairy spirit cruelly exiled to the physical world for reasons that were not at all his fault. He is slowly coming to terms with his predicament and feels fortunate that he has found a way to monetise his contempt for humanity.

Reviews

"Alexis Hall can always be counted on to deliver a sweet and compelling historical romance that explores the paths that queer people forged to find love. Mortal Follies more than satisfies."--NPR

"[Mortal Follies] is a lovely, pitch-perfect romance, with an alternate Regency setting that is well developed and has tremendous charm. . . . Part historical, part fantasy, all top-notch queer romance."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"[Mortal Follies] proves a fresh and delightful addition to the queer romance canon. . . . All the interpersonal drama of Jane Austen meets all the complex treachery of Greek mythology. Full of adventure, chaos, magic, and lust, this will enthrall Hall's fans and new readers alike."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"From the book's puckish narrator--whose sly observations on humanity add another layer of humor to the story--to the whimsically wonderful, witty writing that evokes Jane Austen and Oscar Wilde, Hall . . . [creates] an effervescent, genre-blurring romantic confection that will be utterly irresistible to fans of Patricia C. Wrede, Caroline Stevermer, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Zen Cho."--Booklist
