Reviews

  • This might be the best book I've read all year . . . creepy, pagan, detailed, entrancing. I loved it.

    JOANNE HARRIS, author of Chocolat and The Strawberry Thief
  • Smart, creepy . . . glittering and menacing . . . deliciously terrifying.

    Laird Hunt, GUARDIAN
  • Exploring the darker side of fairytales, it inhabits that liminal space where folklore and horror collide. A worrying tale where reality is filtered through the unreal, and the rational rubs shoulders with the supernatural, this is a beguiling story of love and revenge.

    LUCIE McKNIGHT HARDY, author of Water Shall Refuse Them
  • Bruce's spooky novel is lascivious and bloody, a tale of sexual awakening and dark desires that wreathes its leafy tendrils seductively around you, then tightens them until they start to strangle.

    James Lovegrove, FINANCIAL TIMES
  • Dark and immersive; a feast of storytelling that lingers long after the last morsel's been consumed.

    SAM LLOYD, author of The Memory Wood
  • This beguiling and unsettling debut had me hooked from the first page . . . a unique, strange and defiant folk horror story which lingers long in the memory.

    DAILY EXPRESS
  • A bewitching, beguiling, and deeply unsettling tale of one woman's strange life. It will ensnare you from page one and keep you riveted until the end.

    CAITLIN STARLING, author of The Luminous Dead
  • In this storytelling masterclass, everything is inverted.

    DAILY MAIL
  • A glorious, pitch-black fairytale of a book. Lush, strange and defiant. As soon as I finished it, I went straight back to the start and read it again.

    KIRSTY LOGAN, author of Things We Say in the Dark
  • Odd and unsettling, this might not be for everyone, but we thought it was magic.
