"The Affiliate is a deeply layered novel that has an interesting storyline from one of Fantasy that is full of colors, and represents very minute details. [...] Every single detail hashed out in this book… means something. You think that little object’s don’t count that it’s just descriptive detail, but it’s not. This is why if Fantasy is done well, it will blow your mind in the smallest way." - Goodreads, Anjee
