Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Narrator January LaVoy shines in the third installment of The Diviners series…The story is a striking blend of history, magic, horror, and romance, and LaVoy’s narration highlights each element through clear enunciation, careful pacing, and dramatic flair. Despite the considerable number of characters and their intersecting story lines, LaVoy never misses a beat, demonstrating a wide range of vocal dexterity and skill that creates the impression of an ensemble. Listeners are encouraged to begin at the beginning of this planned four-audiobook series and enjoy LaVoy’s mastery. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“The amazingly versatile LaVoy portrays a large cast of characters peopling the era. She shifts easily from flapper loudmouth Evie, the ‘Sweetheart Seer,’ to soft-spoken African American Memphis and his brother Isaiah, as well as other accents of the big city: Irish, Italian, Spanish, Jewish, Chinese, and Brooklyn. Most effective are her ghosts’ slithering rasps…[and] the menacing threats of the supernatural King of Crows…A mesmerizing reading by a masterful narrator.” Booklist (audio review)
“The narrative is a many-­tentacled thing, reaching into the minds of the seven Diviners as well as myriad other characters…It is a gripping, unsettling read that peels back the shiny surface of the American dream. Like the ghosts facing the Diviners, Bray’s novel has teeth.” Booklist (starred review)
“The diverse protagonists are intricately developed…[and] there is no shortage of action…A solid middle entry that will satisfy readers hooked on this series—and leave them eager for the next.” Kirkus Reviews
“Bray does an admirable job of keeping up the many plotlines and characters she’s endeared to us over the past two books…Diviners fans pos-i-tute-ley will enjoy this tale (as Evie would say)!" RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
