"[Caitlï¿½n Kiernan has] a gift for language that borders on the scary. Deeply, wonderfully, magnificently nasty."--Neil Gaiman "Kiernan's chiller provides a strange and vastly compelling take on a New England haunting, and captures its spirit unnervingly well."--Booklist "[Kiernan's] most personal, ambitious, and accomplished work yet."--Locus "A suspenseful tale that feeds the imagination and blurs the line of reality." --Darque Reviews "With its intelligent blend of folklore, horror, and dark fantasy, Kiernan's latest appeals well beyond urban fantasy fans."--Library Journal "Dark-fantasy specialist Kiernan delivers a creepy and engaging tale...Horror fans will recognize the familiar Lovecraftian gothic-horror elements--indeed, Lovecraft, Poe, and other writers are explicitly referenced in the text--but Kiernan's prose is thoroughly modern...She ably keeps the proceedings from developing into formula, and her portrayals of Sarah's growing obsession, and the violence surrounding the tree, are evocative and chilling. A multileveled novel that will appeal to fans of classic and modern horror."--Kirkus Reviews "Kiernan's dark tale blurs the lines between illusion and reality in this multilayered novel. The characters are complex and deeply flawed, and the beautiful and uninhibited prose easily evokes the dread they experience."--Romantic Times "Kiernan does a great job of evoking the terror of not knowing what is real and what is imagined...a layered, atmospheric tale."--Fantasy Literature "[Kiernan] still remains the only author who manages to truly evoke [Lovecraft] sensations of dread while at the same time managing to do so in a voice entirely her own."--King of the Nerds
