Praise

“Atmospheric landscapes, fast-moving parallel plotlines, and thoughtful meditations on the nature of good, evil, mortality, loyalty, and sacrifice combine for a page-turner a cut above the usual ghost story.”—Booklist

“A dark but graceful parable of temptation, pride, revenge and hope.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“Fisher . . . 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.”—SLJ
 
“Fisher’s evocative prose easily creates a perfectly crafted gothic backdrop to this morality tale, and readers will find this slim but provocative novel an ideal companion for a gloomy afternoon.”—BCCB 

“Fisher could give the show 24 a run for its money with her twists and messed up characters.”—Junot Diaz, quoted in The Wall Street Journal
