Nettle & Bone:
PRAISE FOR THE AUTHOR
The Hollow Places is gripping, bold, sharply witty, inventive and most of all – terrifying! It’s every bit as unmissable as The Twisted Ones. T. Kingfisher most definitely has a new fan!
– Alison Littlewood
The Hollow Places is replete with T. Kingfisher’s trademark comedy-into-horror moments. Uncle Earl’s Wonder Museum seems like the perfect place for Carrot to recover from her divorce, but maybe not so much. Within lie the ways between to unimagined spaces – the hollow places – where They wait.
– Angela Slatter, author of the World Fantasy Award-winning The Bitterwood Bible and Other Recountings
Just like in The Twisted Ones [Kingfisher] riffs on established masters of the genre but uses them to build an original and compelling hinterland world populated by nightmarish figures that haunt you long after you’ve finished
– James Brogden
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
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
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
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.
