Review quote: previous work
Carey writes with compassion and fire - strange and surprising and humane

As fresh as it is terrifying . . . It left me sighing with envious joy

Haunting, heartbreaking

If you only read one novel this year, make sure it''s this one - it''s amazing

Complex,heartbreaking, hopeful and intelligently written . . . Enigmatic and utterly gripping

Original, thrilling and powerful

Takes hold of you and doesn''t let go

Scary, tense and fast-paced . . . but with a heart-warming tenderness
