"(A) petrifying tale of a chain of reincarnations that can only be broken by finding true love.
More than a battle of good and evil, (the) story is rich with layers, well-developed characters, and moments of gruesomeness and tenderness. The loveless malice contrasts sharply with characters—some Repeaters, some not—who feel love so deeply that they seem to glow from it on the page.

Sharp’s astute commentary guides the reader through motivations not otherwise apparent. some readers may find the novel’s irreverence on par with Joseph Heller’s... A novel too good to be ignored."
