Praise

“Captivating, provocative and poignant – not to be missed.”
– David Wragg, author of The Black Hawks

“This is well worth your time!”
–  Gavin G Smith,
author of The Bastard Legion series  

“Houston is able to mark the significance of daily events, highlight her characters, and comment on humanity’s capacity for othering. This intimate fantasy offers a heartfelt reflection on what it means to be human that is sure to please.”
– Publishers Weekly

“A very personal story you won’t be able to stop thinking about long after the tale is told.”
– Dan Hanks, author of Captain Moxley and the Embers of the Empire

“enchanting fairy tale with real-world themes.”
– Ginger Smith, author of The Rush’s Edge

“a coming-of-age tale set in a lavishly detailed backdrop drawn from the writer’s native Slavic mythology”

– Tracy Fahey
author of The Girl in the Fort and New Music For Old Rituals 

“Prose that scintillates, characters that captivate, and a world that is at once enchanting in its magic, horrifying in its realism, and vice-versa. Houston has gifted us with a folktale that is both mythically resonant and all too human.”
– Tyler Hayes
author of The Imaginary Corpse

“A fresh and provocative spin on the Slavic Stiga mythology, The Second Bell is a smart and complex journey into the meaning of family, community, nature and possibility. A gripping read and full of heart.”
– Soniah Kamal, award-winning author of Unmarriageable
