A grand, thought-provoking adventure in sorrow, joy and magic. One of the most intriguing novels you'll read this year. An unforgettable debut with an enchanting, compelling lead.--J. T. Ellison, New York Times bestselling author of What Lies Behind
A riveting, spell-binding tale that brings 13th century Europe vividly to life.--S.D. Sykes, author of Plague Land
In those parts of the tale in which Mouse must counter threats, the novel is a compulsive read, full of historical and supernatural (yet historically-founded) detail.
A deliciously creepy debut. Carpenter's vivid imagination creates a well-rounded, sympathetic heroine and an intricate world full of terrifying details. The volatility of the evil forces threatening Mouse's world makes for an unpredictable journey.
The most badass heroine I've encountered in a long time. One part historical thriller, one part adventure fantasy, and all parts girl power.--Nina Sankovitch, author of 'Tolstoy and the Purple Chair'
One of the best novels I've read in years. Wonderful writing, great characters, a fantastic story--everything a reader of historical fiction could want.--Philip Freeman, author of Saint Brigid's Bones
A thoroughly enjoyable read -- gripping and exciting with a wonderful and intriguing central character in the enigmatic Mouse and a sting-in-the-tail ending that is a genuine surprise. We will be hearing much more from Dana Chamblee Carpenter in the future.--Diana Bretherick, author of City of Devils
This entrancing and suspenseful story pulls you in as if you were reading a Grimm's fairy tale but with a strong, complex yet vulnerable woman at its core. A page-turner of eerie shivers and supernatural questions.--Nancy Bilyeau, author of The Crown
Bohemian Gospel is a fast-moving, seductive read. A fascinating mix of dark fantasy and rich historical detail, swirling around Mouse, a fiercely independent, brave young woman who struggles with a gift that is both a blessing and a curse.--Linda Lafferty, author of The Bloodletter's Daughter
Bohemian Gospel isn't afraid to leave readers with unanswered questions, though, in the best possible way. Hot dang, that is how you write a freaking epilogue. I refuse to disclose any spoilers, but trust me--you won't see the ending coming. I can only sit tight and wait for a sequel.--Ellen Findley
