Praise

“Spine-tingling.”—People 

“This gorgeously written eerie suspense novel gave me chills as it raced toward an unexpected climax. I loved it!”—Karin Slaughter, author of Pretty Girls

“Troubling, sinuous and powerfully told, you won’t be able to stop turning the pages.”—Megan Abbott, author of You Will Know Me

“Dionne’s breathtaking psychological thriller is a fairy tale writ large…the suspense in the plotting and the cold distance Helena’s voice projects [hold readers] entranced until the stunning climax.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Exceptional….Helena’s conflicting emotions about her father and her own identity elevate this powerful story.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“If you only read one thriller this year, make it The Marsh King’s Daughter. It’s sensational.”—Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go

“A masterpiece of crisp prose and fine storytelling.”—Sara Gruen, author of Water for Elephants and At the Water’s Edge
 
“[A] well-crafted, eerie, and unnerving psychological thriller. With a strong setting and swift pacing, this novel is recommended for readers who enjoyed Emma Donoghue’s Room and Travis Mulhauser’s Sweetgirl.”—Library Journal
 
“[W]ill keep readers gripped until the end….For fans of Emma Donoghue’s Room and of novels with strong female leads.”—Booklist

“Expertly written, gripping, compulsively readable.”—Melanie Benjamin, author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue 

“Eerie and breathtaking, terrific and terrifying in the best possible way. Dionne holds you under her spell from the first word to the last—and then some.”—Tea Obreht, author of The Tiger’s Wife
 
“First‐rate plotting builds the tension with psychological suspense and action sequences….The story is at once both horrific and fascinating.”—RT Book Reviews

“Totally compelling and different from anything I can remember reading before.”—Peter Lovesey

“Don’t think you know how this plays out, just hand the reins to Dionne, who is completely in control of this unexpected narrative, and of your pounding heart.”—Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean
 
“I don’t use the word ‘brilliant’ often, but no other adjective feels adequate…It’s an understatement to say that The Marsh King’s Daughter is an exceptional achievement.”—David Morrell, author of Murder as a Fine Art; creator of the iconic character Rambo
 
“Everything I could ask for in a psychological thriller: a stunningly fresh and confident voice, gorgeous writing, originality, and a complex protagonist I could really root for. I wish it were possible to read a book for the first time more than once.”—Carla Buckley, author of The Deepest Secret
