Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Terrifying, thrilling, and relentless.” Guardian (London)
“YA author Sedgwick shifts triumphantly to adult fiction with this moving and multifaceted thriller…Sedgwick maintains a high level of tension up until the devastating conclusion.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Sedgwick’s prose is nothing short of gorgeous; his patient, almost procedural tracking of Charles’ decades of wandering has a nineteenth-century elegance…Here’s a novel that tastes of blood and dust, just as a fine old-fashioned horror novel should.” Booklist (starred review)
“In this macabre psychological thriller, Sedgwick offers atmospheric settings and a relentless, chilling plot that gives a whole new meaning to the idea of ‘blood feud.’” Kirkus Reviews
