The Book Eaters:
“Some novels are intended to be devoured in one sitting. Such is the case with Sunyi Dean’s The Book Eaters. Innovative, unique, poignant, and told with a voice as original as the story itself. I finished this novel in that one sitting, yet I’ll be pondering it for a long time to come. This is the debut of a new master of the modern fantasy. Don’t miss it.”
―James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestseller of The Starless Crown
“Raw and imaginative, this gritty, gothic anti-fairytale knows the truth: love will make a villain out of anyone.”
―Olivie Blake, author of The Atlas Six
“Sunyi Dean’s The Book Eaters is a darkly sweet pastry of a book about family, betrayal, and the lengths we go to for the ones we love. Great reading for a rainy morning, with tea or coffee on, a cat in your lap, and nowhere to be but lost in a delicious modern fairy tale.”
― Christopher Buehlman, author of The Blacktongue Thief
‘Dean reinvents the vampire in way that’s both disturbing’
― RJ Barker Bestselling author of The Bone Ships
“A riveting tale that consumed me as earnestly as I devoured it. Full of grit and humanity, Sunyi Dean expertly weaves the complexities of motherhood, loyalty and found family in a world not far from our own. Dean’s debut has already established her as a master of craft. If I were a book eater, this novel would be one to savour.”
Saara El-Arifi, author of The Final Strife
