Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Weaves] xenophobia, industrial progress, Jazz Age debauchery, government secrets, religious fervor, and supernatural horror into a sprawling and always entertaining narrative.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“This breathtaking sequel…[is] an action-packed, fast-paced, and slang-filled read.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“The ambitiously broad focus of this novel strikes just the right balance in its division of narrative might, developing each of the dizzyingly large cast of diverse characters with an impressive attention to detail and with period-specific, witty dialogue.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Explores friendships, dark secrets, and dramatic love interests. This book will fly off the shelves.” VOYA (starred review)
“Sweet relationships (romantic, platonic, and familial) and snarky banter filled with period slang balance and accentuate the suspenseful horror. Fans will barrel through this second installment and emerge impatient for the next.” Horn Book
“Narrator January LaVoy’s performance is simply amazing…In a plot crowded with so many characters, LaVoy doesn’t utter a false note. Her vocal range is awe-inspiring, her characters are fully developed, and her voice is lovely. The divine duo of Libba Bray and January LaVoy does not disappoint. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“January LaVoy expertly narrates the diverse cast of characters, masterfully portraying everyone from the effervescent Evie to old, conniving Blind Bill.” School Library Journal (audio review)
“LaVoy does a marvelous job with the remarkably large cast of characters, creating distinct vocal personalities for each character and maintaining them for the full 20-hour recording. Her pacing, accents, and attitudes clearly depict the temperament of each character as well as the thoughts and emotions driving their actions. Going the extra narrative mile, LaVoy sings the many songs woven into the plot, adding intensity and energy to an already captivating tale.” Booklist (audio review)
“Bray’s long-awaited second Diviners novel delivers…It’s a delight to see Evie and the crew, and Bray’s 1920s New York is again a wonder to visit. Bray handles the tricky task of writing dreams deftly, as readers stay engaged for all 600-plus pages. Divine!” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)
