The God of Endings
“I stayed up late 3 nights to finish Jacqueline Holland's debut novel, The God of Endings. I'd never pictured a vampire story that started in the United States in the 1820s - it made for a unique plot as opposed to a pure Eastern European origin story...The prose is simply lovely. I enjoyed Holland's use of imagery and characterization to develop a gothic world that an unwilling vampire is forced to move through between her "birth" and the present. Saskia Maarleveld's voice highlights the introspective nature of young Anna, who eventually adopts the name of Collette as she moves through the centuries. Our protagonist is a tortured soul who wishes to understand not only herself but also the motivations of humanity, from its brutality to innocent beauty. ”Linda,

“Really good! Sort of a Dracula meets the Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. Elements of suspense, psychological twists, a bit of gore but not too much to make one turn one's eyes away, and very insightful commentary on the human experience. Great history imbedded in one of the timelines as well. I loved the reader and her ability to provide all the accents and voices of the characters. ”Jen,
“By the end of the first page, I knew I would follow this narrator anywhere, and I would do it again without hesitation. The suspense of how both storylines play out is perfect, the voice is persuasive and vivid. This is a novel to sink into.”Gwen Papp,
"Maarleveld's narration takes the exquisite prose of this story and elevates it to a lyrical listening experience. Her consistently skilled delivery moves through a variety of accents and time periods. This audiobook is a fascinating story told by a masterful performer."- AudioFile
By turns suspenseful and enchanting, this breathtaking first novel weaves a story of love, family, history, and myth as seen through the eyes of one immortal woman.
Collette LeSange is a lonely artist who heads an elite fine arts school for children in upstate New York. Her youthful beauty masks the dark truth of her life: she has endured centuries of turmoil and heartache in the wake of her grandfather’s long-ago decision to make her immortal like himself. Now in 1984, Collette finds her life upended by the arrival of a gifted child from a troubled home, the return of a stalking presence from her past, and her own mysteriously growing hunger.
Combining brilliant prose with breathtaking suspense, Jacqueline Holland's The God of Endings serves as a larger exploration of the human condition in all its complexity, asking us the most fundamental question: is life in this world a gift or a curse?
