.. .has [Peter S.] Beagle's knack for creating colorful, instantly memorable characters, and inhuman creatures capable of inspiring awe and wonder. --NPR Books, on THE SEVENTH BRIDE She knows her genre and audience well enough to perfectly walk the line between comfortingly familiar and delightfully fresh and subversive. --SF Bluestocking, on THE SEVENTH BRIDE The writing. It is superb. Ursula Vernon/T. Kingfisher, where have you been all my life? --The Book Smugglers at Kirkus Reviews, on BRYONY & ROSES Innovative, unexpected, and absolutely chilling, T. Kingfisher isn't just breaking into the horror scene, she's breaking it down. With a hammer. --Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Mira Grant The Twisted Ones is a weird, shimmering story told with sharpness and grace - somehow both wild fairy tale and quiet, personal horror in equal measure. It's a strange and lovely balance, expertly crafted for daytime laughter or nighttime trembles. --Cherie Priest, author of The Family Plot and Maplecroft. By turns warm, witty, and frightening, with a charming protagonist, a diverse and vibrant supporting cast, and -- best of all -- a noble, dimwitted dog. Fair warning: there is a razor in the center of this confection, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I won't be forgetting grandmother's house anytime soon. --Nathan Ballingrud, author of Wounds and North American Lake Monsters A dark fairy tale adventure for contemporary readers. Mouse is a great character and the journey is enchanting in the best way - full of terror and humor and friendship. --Jeffrey Ford, author of Ahab's Return and A Natural History of Hell A deliciously horrifying read.

In fact, be prepared to never sleep again. --Nebula Award-winning author Alyssa Wong Reads so fast and so effortless that you don't realize how in thrall you are to it.

This is righteous, folkloric horror, and the devil is waiting in between these pages. --Chuck Wendig, NYT bestselling author of Blackbirds and Wanderers
