Reviews

"In Ghoulish Song, William Alexander returns us to the fascinatingly sinister world of Zombay. As with his previous novel, Goblin Secrets, Alexander's work is startlingly original, simultaneously funny and suspenseful."--Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn
"Alexander's storytelling is compelling and clever, and this tale of courage is by turns humorous, poignant and convincing."--Kirkus Reviews
"[Alexander's] graceful prose weaves an engaging fantasy that embraces the power of music."--Publisher's Weekly
"With wonderful economy, Mr. Alexander conjures a vertiginous adventure shot through with humor in this clever tale."--Wall Street Journal
"A vivid and fast-paced read."--Booklist
"[Alexander's] storytelling remains compelling, and Kaile makes a likable heroine, at times admirably noble and at other times understandably frustrated and defiant."--BCCB
