Note that some painful scenes feature self-harm and violence. Overall this singular work keeps readers thinking long after the final page.”–Library Journal, starred review

“Shifts and alterations in timelines demand close attention from readers, but McGuire’s rigorous plotting pulls everything together by the end. This is a fascinating novel by an author of consummate skill.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

Satisfying on all levels of the reading experience: thrilling, emotionally resonant, and cerebral. Escape to Witch Mountain for grown-ups.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
