“[A] rip-roaring Gothic mystery. . . .  Will keep you glued to your deck chair.”–Seattle Times

“A wickedly clever tale.”–Miami Herald
 
“Ruiz Zafón’s narrative twists and soars, part dream and part slippery reality brought to live in vivid detail…. A book for story lovers: expansive, rich and slow to digest.”—Denver Post
 
“Zafón can write up a storm. . . . A dream from which it would be imprudent to awake.”–The Washington Post
 
“Absorbing…. Offers not only plenty of plot intricacies and mystery but also a lyrical style of writing…. A literary centaur in which a meditation on the craft of writing is combined with a thriller.” —Los Angeles Times
 
“A love letter to all things literary, and a paean to the power of the written word. . . . Zafón is a storyteller with vast gifts.”–The Onion
 
“A thriller laden with Gothic elements. . . . A pleasure to read.”—The Christian Science Monitor
 
“Zafón, a master of mood and emotional manipulation, guides us through Barcelona’s backstreets. . . . Readers who enjoy losing themselves completely in a grand scary story that is at once epic and intimate will find themselves spellbound.”—San Antonio Express-News 

 ”Zafon keeps the twists coming, right down to the last page.”–The Oregonian
 
“As in The Shadow of the Wind, [Zafón] spins a fantastically elaborate plot.”–New York Times

“A love letter to all things literary, and a paean to the power of the written word. . . . Zafón is a storyteller with vast gifts.”–The Onion
 
“Zafon takes us into sinful corners, indulging fantasies that are erotic, magical or violent. In the end Zafón is the tempter. Many will fall for his vigorous and exhaustingly relentless story-telling.”–The Guardian
 
“Gothic, fantastical and lushly atmospheric.”—Wall Street Journal
 
“Irresistible. . . . Writhes and twists. . . .  We can compare Zafon to Dickens or Poe, but his brilliant writing puts him in a league of his own. . . . Exquisite.”—Bookreporter
 
“Endearing and addictive.”—Financial Times
