Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A dark and enchanting tale about friendship, pain, revenge, and the power of love, The Cold Is in Her Bones is the perfect read for Greek mythology fans and YA readers alike.” Bustle
“A dark atmospheric fantasy debut…Achingly poetic.” Kirkus Reviews
“Narrator Candace Thaxton conjures up a world both familiar and hauntingly foreign in this adaptation of the Medusa myth…Thaxton’s expert narration creates a feeling of timelessness, and the contemporary setting doesn’t clash with the fantasy aspects of the story. Her portrayal of Milla is by turns wistful, sardonic, and firm in her resolve. She gives distinct voices to a largely female cast, including a deliciously shivery reptilian tone for the demon girls. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
