Reviews

"... A devastating marriage of the stunningly unexpected with the maddeningly inevitable. This adaptation's bewitching intrigues and enthralling deceptions will whet the daggers of any reader's mind."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Talley creates a dark and twisted gothic boarding school setting replete with vengeful spirits, drugs, and suicide in this Shakespeare-inspired tragedy... that lulls readers into a false sense of security while setting them up for the next chilling event."--Publishers Weekly
"An intriguing, appropriately atmospheric take on one of Shakespeare's most spine-tingling plays."--Booklist
"Those familiar with the source material will not be surprised at how the story plays out, but knowing the eventual outcomes does not diminish Talley's dark tale about fate and ambition... Highly recommended."--School Library Journal
"Fans of horror will find that Talley comes up with some genuinely creepy scares, and her Shakespeare-inspired story is solid and compelling."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
