Praise for Ann Benson’s Novels
The Burning Road
"A riveting medical thriller…cleverly combines two stories, separated by centuries."
"Gripping…Exciting and Complex."
"Boldly conceived…aims to please historical romance readers as well as futuristic thrill-seekers…Benson’s medieval tale and its colorful characters are…intriguingly drawn."
"Engaging… With the same ingenuity and skillful plot development she used in The Plague Tales, Benson takes us back to 14th-century Europe."
–The Tampa Tribune
The Plague Tales
"Part historical novel, part futuristic adventure…chock-full of curious lore and considerable suspense."
"A hard-to-put-down thriller steeped in historical fiction and bio-tech sci-fi …a rich, tightly rendered tale…the enticing hold of parallel historical and futuristic stories–with a virulent epidemic as the ultimate common enemy–is a grip that is hard to resist."
–Middlesex News (Mass.)
"Benson reveals a formidable talent as she blends historical fiction with a near-future bio-thriller. [Her] debut is assured and accomplished in both the past and the present. [She] renders both eras and their character in vivid detail."
–Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Intriguing…Benson neatly alternates between two attention-grabbing stories."
