Praise for Silenced:

“A brilliant use of fairy tale lore plus wonderfully complex characters make this dark thriller a satisfying must-read.”
Kelley Armstrong, author of A Rip Through Time

“Andersen and Grimm blend with a gut-wrenching #metoo scenario in this gripping story of abused women struggling to regain their agency. Stylish writing, memorable characters and a touch of fairy tale scholarship combine to create an absorbing and highly original novel.” 
Juliet Marillier, author of the Blackthorn & Grim series

“Ann Claycomb is a name in speculative fiction that all readers should know. Her newest novel, Silenced is not always an easy story, but it’s a necessary one. Read this book; it will break your heart in all the best possible ways.”
Gwendolyn Kiste, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Rust Maidens and Reluctant Immortals

Silenced is a gripping modern fairy tale with its foundations firmly in our folkloric past. Claycomb’s constructed a perfect story for the #metoo moment and beyond. Silenced is also a frank acknowledgement that a fairy tale can be just as much a nightmare as a dream, and only our own voices can set us free.”
A.G. Slatter, author of The Path of Thorns

“A sharp, sassy, searing novel, where life is like fairy tales and fairy tales are like life… where those fairy tales are of the most dark and dangerous kind, of course. I loved it.” 
A. J. Elwood, author of The Other Lives of Miss Emily White

“Brutally dark and compulsively readable, this fresh and original modern fable unravels the traditional fairy tales and places female empowerment at their core. Bold, relevant and subversive, I couldn’t put it down.”
R.L. Boyle, author of The Book of the Baku
