Reviews

I love a good dystopian page-turner, and Peng Shepherd's debut novel is the real deal. . . . Shepherd mixes in elements of multiple genres, like post-apocalyptic thriller and fantasy. But at its core, it's a meditation on memories and personhood, as Shepherd asks which one defines the other.--Elle on The Book of M
"A beautiful and haunting story about the power of memory and the necessity of human connection, this book is a post-apocalyptic masterpiece and the one dystopian novel you really need to read this year."--Bustle on The Book of M
"I was both disturbed and inspired by Max's and Ory's journey through apocalypses large and small. Peng Shepherd has written a prescient, dark fable for the now and for the soon-to-be. The Book of M is our beautiful nightmare shadow."--Paul Tremblay, award-winning author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World, on The Book of M
The Cartographers is a story about magical maps that lead to your heart's desire, the sort of people who would do anything to find them, and the joy, regret, and possibility they bring. A vastly rich experience. I loved this book.--Charles Soule, author of The Oracle Year
"This is an apocalyptic thriller with heart. . . . The Book of M is devastating and inventive as Shepherd examines the value of memory, packing in imaginative twists as she goes."--USA Today on The Book of M
"She is a brilliant, brilliant new fiction writer. This is someone who you're eventually going to have on this couch--she's that good."--Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author, on the Today show
Eerily magical . . . At the heart of the novel is a timeless question about the meaning of memory.--Time on The Book of M
