Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Leonardo da Vinci

“The second title in Krull’s Giants of Science series meets, and perhaps even exceeds, expectations set by the debut, Leonardo da Vinci. Krull and Newton are a match made in heaven.”

Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on Marie Curie

“Krull lives up to the promise of the first two entries in her Giants of Science series with this lucid and thoughtful examination of Freud’s life, work, and legacy.”
