Scary and smart, but also a philosophical inquiry into the nature of love and will. * Washington Post *
Rich, elegant and atmospheric * Irish Times *
A novel that manages that vanishingly rare feat - being at once hugely readable and profoundly important * Observer *
Mythic, ominous and sensitively human, Melmoth is haunting in all the best ways -- Frances Hardinge
This is a beautiful, devastating, brilliant book. It affected me so much I was shaking after I read it. The exquisite, immersive writing compelled me to keep reading even through the horrors described. -- Marian Keyes
Astonishingly dark, rich storytelling, exquisitely balanced between gothic shocks and emotional truth -- Francis Spufford
Sarah Perry is a wonderful writer, the real thing -- Susan Hill
Atmospheric and unsettling, Perry's version works on one level as a creepy ghost story, but its greater purpose is to pose hard questions about suffering, redemption, complicity and our responsibilities to each other. -- Alastair Mabbott * The Herald *
The rich Gothic imagination of Perry's bestselling The Essex Serpent is on sparkling form here, as Melmoth wanders across centuries and continents, linking the stories of all who encounter her in a gloriously multi-layered narrative which is both chilling and redemptive. -- Jane Shilling * Daily Mail *
An ominous story of creeping dread, perfect for the lengthening evenings -- Keeba Roy * The Mail on Sunday *
