A fairytale, a psychological portrait and a bleak drama. * New Books Magazine * Dark and magical, one of the best books I've read this year. * Books, Bones & Buffy * Odd and unsettling, this might not be for everyone, but we thought it was magic. * HEAT magazine * 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 In this storytelling masterclass, everything is inverted. * DAILY MAIL * 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 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 * Dark and immersive; a feast of storytelling that lingers long after the last morsel's been consumed. -- SAM LLOYD, author of The Memory Wood 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 * 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 Smart, creepy . . . glittering and menacing . . . deliciously terrifying. -- Laird Hunt * GUARDIAN * 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
