"Lavie Tidhar’s Camera Obscura is not so much a sequel to his generally impressive steampunk novel, The Bookman, as it is a continuation of events in the world presented in that debut. While the locale is different and no characters brought forward, this work retains all the nuances of the first novel and improves upon most of them." - Alan Cranis, www.bookgasm.com
"Although I recommend reading The Bookman first (simply because it is one great Steampunk novel), it is not essential for understanding Camera Obscura. Lavie Tidhar’s latest novel is highly enjoyable on its own." -www.daily-steampunk.com
"Camera Obscura raised the Lesards series to a must for me... I am truly curious where Lavie Tidhar will take it next." - Liviu Suciu, Fantasy Book Critic
