“This was weird, creepy, and amazing. I didn’t know what to expect and at first wasn’t sure what was happening, or where or when it was happening, but I just went with it and am so glad I did. This is like nothing I’ve read before. But I would argue that it is a crazy mix-up of movies The Thing, Dune, The Shining, and Aliens with gothic novels like Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. All good things!”Kristine, Buttonwood Books and Toys

The Book Eaters

Getting glimpses into Devon's childhood throughout the novel added so much agency to her character as an adult as she fights tooth and nail to have the chance to write her own narrative.”Allie, Third Street Books
