"(Caitlï¿½n R. Kiernan is) the most singular voice to enter the genre since Neil Gaiman popped up in graphic novels and Stephen King made movies live inside books...Beginning with the instant-classic Silk and continuing through her short fiction to this extraordinary new novel, Kiernan hasn't missed a step yet...If you haven't sampled her work yet, you haven't really been reading the future of horror and dark fantasy, only its past." --Lisa DuMond, SF Site, MEviews.com
