Praise for this book

"It's meaty, dark and terrifying. Unflinchingly violent and beautifully big-hearted in equal measure. And Sarah's writing is glorious - she tells us things in new ways, gives us a fully fleshed, sensual world to inhabit for the novel." - Julia Crouch

"It has such pace and force. It's very disturbing and builds up to a terrific climax." - Helen Dunmore

"It's written with the verve and assurance of a future star and deserves to be a big hit." - Steven Dunne

"I think it must be one of the debut novels of next year, if not THE debut novel... (It will be if there is any justice in the world!)" - Caro Ramsay

"Intelligently and fluently written with a clever plot and an energetic pace, dealing with harrowing topics and shot through with humanity, I think Sarah's onto a winning series and I really look forward to reading the next instalment." - Cath Staincliffe
