Praise

Praise for the Ghost Roads series

“Hitchhiking ghosts, the unquiet dead, the gods of the old American roads—McGuire enters the company of Lindskold and Gaiman with this book, creating a wistful, funny, fascinating new mythology of diners, corn fields, and proms in this all-in-one-sitting read!” —Tamora Pierce, #1 New York Times bestelling author

“Seanan McGuire doesn’t write stories, she gifts us with Myth—new Myths for a layered America that guide us off the twilight roads and lend us a pretty little dead girl to show us the way home.” —Tanya Huff, author of the Blood books

“McGuire is a writer to be reckoned with, landing stone-cold emotional blows in quick succession while simultaneously stringing laugh-out-loud moments alongside lush descriptions, knife-sharp badinage and quickfire action sequences.” —Strange Horizons

“The impeccable third Ghost Roads urban fantasy (after The Girl in the Green Silk Gown) explores and expands on McGuire’s modern-day mythology, brilliantly marrying old traditions and more recent urban legends to create an enthralling tapestry of highway hauntings and hard-traveling horrors.” —Publishers Weekly

“The author takes a deliberately lyrical tone with this series, making the story feel like a folk song. She has a gift for putting her heroines in danger and finding creative ways to return them to see them out of it.” —Library Journal

“The first volume of McGuire’s Ghost Stories is an evocative and profoundly creative work that instantly wraps around readers’ imaginations…. This emotional, consistently surprising collection of adventures is also a striking testament to the power of American myths and memories.” —RT Reviews (top pick)

“If you’ve read any of McGuire’s previous books, then you’ll know she has a penchant for wit and humor; it’s on display here as well. As with the myths she uses to create the world, it’s all blended together quite impressively.” —Culturess
