My Reviews

  • Crossings

    What makes the story a real page-turner from the very start is the mystery of the strange occurrence of animal corpses appearing without any explanation — many of them at Lisa’s house. The suspense is the kind that keeps you from doing things you’re supposed to be doing, as you just want to find out what the hell is going on — and that’s when you know you’re reading a good story.

  • The City of Masks

    A thoroughly enjoyable book, the kind that grabs your attention from page one and never lets go: the author has a great sense of pacing and rhythm, and … cunning switches in point of view between the main three characters.

    This is one of the few recent books I have that I consider truly excellent. It’s poetic and wistful and drives you forward without losing its heart. Seriously, I loved this book.
