Reviews

-Imagine a book somewhere between American Gods and Faulkner. In brief: a good book. Absolutely worth your time.- --Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author -As raw and bewitching as the music and magic that fuel it. I loved this book for many reasons--the bone-deep mystery, the setting, the music, and the harsh beauty of its characters. It gives a new meaning to well played.- --Rachel Caine, New York Times bestselling author -Haunting . . . A rustic version of 'urban fantasy, ' with its suggestion that there's mystery just around the corner, hidden behind even the dullest small-town facade.- --Wall Street Journal -With a deep love for the mountains embedded in his language, Bledsoe crafts a deceptively simple story of family and community, laced throughout with the music and beliefs of a magical reality. Elegantly told.- --Library Journal, starred review -This powerful, character-driven drama, set forth in superbly lucid prose, occurs against an utterly convincing backdrop and owns complications enough to keep everyone compulsively turning the pages. A sheer delight.- --Kirkus Reviews, starred review -Bledsoe's rich, nearly poetic prose . . . captured me at page one and didn't let me go to the end. If you are a fan of urban fantasy, this is a book you need to add to your list today. There are secrets ancient and wild waiting for you to discover, and I enjoyed every minute.- --Seattle Post-Intelligencer -Bledsoe turns standard urban fantasy tropes on their head. . . . The slowly unfolding mystery of the Tufa is a fascinating and absorbing masterpiece of world-building.- --Publishers Weekly "Imagine a book somewhere between American Gods and Faulkner.
