BOOK REVIEW

THE WATCHER by Charlotte Link
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 15, 2014

"Link (The Other Child, 2013) switches so deftly among her different characters' viewpoints that the web she weaves is tinged by an exceptionally powerful sense of miasmal paranoia. Only the hyperextended last act, plunging her damsel into a much more traditional kind of distress, is a letdown."
Someone is watching Gillian Ward. Actually, several someones, each with a different agenda, some of them creepy, one of them lethal. Read full book review >

GET IN TROUBLE by Kelly Link
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 3, 2015

"Exquisite, cruelly wise and the opposite of reassuring, these stories linger like dreams and will leave readers looking over their shoulders for their own ghosts."
In stories as haunting as anything the Grimm brothers could have come up with, Link (Magic for Beginners, 2005, etc.) gooses the mundane with meaning and enchantment borrowed from myth, urban legend and genre fiction.Read full book review >
