Reviews

An entertaining read with the odd gory moment and some really imaginative and charming magical beings * Horror Hothouse * A deliciously creepy, decadent read. 5/5 * Speculating on SpecFic * An easy book to read . . . I was drawn back to it consistently . . . I would recommend this book * It Puts The Blog In The Basket * A beautiful, fantastically constructed novel with some truly excellent character work . . . Pollack's first novel in over a decade really is worth picking up * Intellectus Speculativus * One of this year's Do Not Miss books. Five stars, and it earns every one of them * Over the Effing Rainbow * A bold new step for Pollack . . . a multi-layered tale of growing up and self-discovery that also happens to have a horrific supernatural terror as its central focus * Starburst * The Child Eater is written in broad, bold strokes . . . It's a dark, disturbing book; it's also full of light and wonder * NPR * An intricately imagined Tarot-themed fantasy * Guardian *
