Praise for Darkwater

“The plot and characters are skillfully developed and greatly enhanced by the aura of malevolence that permeates the mood of Fisher’s Faustian novel.” –Horn Book Reviews

“Fisher does a lot right in this Dickensian tale as she spins a spooky story and portrays a ghastly mansion that readers can just about touch, taste, and smell. A book for those who really love atmospheric tales with literary quality.” –School Library Journal

“Darkly atmospheric, this Faustian update is both compelling and accessible with an ending that interrogates notions of good and evil without belaboring the point…Fisher’s evocative prose easily creates a perfectly crafted gothic backdrop….an ideal companion for a gloomy afternoon.” –Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books review — review feed
