“A terrific book, sweet, touching and great fun. I loved it.”
“Godmother is earthy, lyrical, sensual and deeply, intelligently romantic. Carolyn Turgeon has a gift for mingling the magical and the mundane. Her earthy, sensual and richly imagined take on the fair folk should appeal to fans of Holly Black.”
—Alisa Kwitney/Sheckley, author of Flirting in Cars and The Better to Hold You
“Godmother is a transcendent little gem of a book.”
—Novelist Cherie Priest for Subterranean Magazine
"Turgeon’s work is haunting and hypnotic, blending the line of reality and magic into a gorgeous flowing narrative. Set against a modern day backdrop, this tale reexamines an all-too familiar story and breathes new life into it."
—Anton Strout, author of Dead to Me
“With a fairy’s touch, Carolyn Turgeon expands the familiar Cinderella story into something deeper, richer and darker than we’ve ever been allowed. A stunning reminder that enchantment — both its pleasures and dangers — is as human as we are.”
—Daphne Gottlieb, author of Kissing Dead Girls
"Godmother is a true exploration of the dark vitality of city life and the hidden horrors of the fantastic."
—Nick Mamatas, author of Under My Roof
“Turgeon must have a magic wand for a pen–these haunting, dazzling pages turn themselves.”
—Jennifer Belle, author of High Maintenance and Little Stalker
