Praise

“Zen Cho’s brilliant and distinct voice brings worlds to life on the page. A sharp and bittersweet story of past and future, ghosts and gods and family, that kept me turning pages into the dark hours of the night.”—Naomi Novik, New York Times bestselling author of A Deadly Education
 
“Told with love and humour, Black Water Sister is both ode and accusation to all the ties that bind—to family, duty and home. Thrilling and terrifying, honest and hopeful, this may be Zen Cho’s best work yet.”—Karen Lord, award-winning author of Unraveling

“Zen Cho’s Black Water Sister is a perfect blend of ghosts, gods, and the eternal bonds of family ties. Set in the gorgeous backdrop of Penang, Jess reunites with her extended family and navigate the world of spirits and gangsters. This novel is perfect for readers craving an otherworldly, atmospheric fantasy.”—Roselle Lim, author of Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck & Fortune

“A thrilling modern fantasy tale packed to the brim with deliciously petty spirits, intriguing family secrets, and an achingly tender personal journey for our thoroughly relatable heroine. I absolutely loved it.”—Sarah Kuhn, author of Heroine Complex 

“A creepily atmospheric and surprisingly heartwarming tale of gangsters, family, and spirits”—Ailette de Bodard, Nebula-award winning author of Seven of Infinities 

“Zen Cho’s Black Water Sister is the diaspora fantasy of my dreams—funny, creepy, and heartfelt. Jessamyn Teoh never wanted to be haunted by her sassy, score-settling grandmother, but when she moves from America to her parents’ hometown in Malaysia, she must navigate family, gods, ghosts and old grudges in this compelling and heartwarming ghost story.—Vanessa Len
 
 “A compelling and deftly written ghost story of a young woman’s passage through the grudges and tragedies of her family’s past to find a path into a future she chooses for herself.”—Kate Elliott, New York Times bestselling author of Unconquerable Sun
