Praise

Praise for Maplecroft

“Cherie Priest is supremely gifted and Maplecroft is a remarkable novel, simultaneously beautiful and grotesque.  It is at once a dark historical fantasy with roots buried deep in real-life horror and a supernatural thriller mixing Victorian drama and Lovecraftian myth.  You won’t be able to put it down.”—Christopher Golden, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Snowblind

“Give Cherie Priest fifteen minutes of your time; trust me—you won’t look back.”—Bookslut
 
“Priest kills as a stylist.”—Charles de Lint, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction
 
“Cherie Priest kicks ass!”—Maggie Shayne, New York Times Bestselling Author of Sleep with the Lights On
 

Author Essay

Dear Reader,

Lizzie Borden got a bad rap. Everyone thinks they know her, that she’s a murderer, that she killed her parents–there’s even a rhyme about it:

Lizzie Borden took an axe

And gave her mother forty whacks.

When she saw what she had done,

She gave her father forty-one.

But what if she had a reason? What if Lizzie killed her parents, not because she was a homicidal maniac, but because her parents were possessed by unspeakable evil? And that killing them was the only way to stop the horror growing within them from spreading to others?

This is the premise of Cherie Priest’s chilling and atmospheric dark historical fantasy novel, Maplecroft.

You won’t be able to put it down. And you’ll never look at Lizzie Borden the same way again.

-Anne Sowards
