Product description

Review

"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. I adored it. In turns deeply human and uncanny, The Twisted Ones reads like the world's most terrifying episode of Hoarders. Don't sleep on it. In fact, be prepared to never sleep again."--Nebula Award-winning author Alyssa Wong

"A fresh spin on traditional [southern] gothic elements."-- "Chicago Review of Books"

"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

"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

"It's Wes Craven meets L. Frank Baum, or Narnia for those of us who thought Narnia smiled without showing enough of its teeth."--KB Spangler, Digital Divide, on Summer in Orcus

"Reads so fast and so effortless that you don't realize how in thrall you are to it. It's the sensation of being a little kid who stayed out too long past dinner and sure, you were having fun, but now it's a moonless night and the forest is dark and you are hopelessly lost. This is righteous, folkloric horror, and the devil is waiting in between these pages."--Chuck Wendig, NYT bestselling author of Blackbirds and Wanderers

"Righteous, folkloric horror. The devil is waiting in between these pages."--Chuck Wendig, New York Times Bestselling author

"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.

"This occult thriller with heart boasts genuine scares."-- "Publishers Weekly"

My favourite thing about the novel...is the unpredictability of how the story progresses, the subversion of the most common horror tropes. Fear not, we know from early on, given the framing narrative, that the dog survives.-- "The Book Smugglers"

...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"

"There is nothing I love more than to be taken by surprise by a story that is so unexpectedly great like this one is."-- "Kirkus Reviews, on The Seventh Bride"

Laden with cosmic fright, The Twisted Ones connects the foreboding of ancient folklore with the horrors of modern life. But it does so with a sharp, witty voice and a compelling first-person protagonist who finds herself precariously straddling worlds she never knew existed.--Jason Heller "NPR Books"

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" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
