About the Author

Cherie Priest debuted to great acclaim with Four and Twenty Blackbirds, Wings to the Kingdom, and Not Flesh Nor Feathers, a trilogy of Southern Gothic ghost stories featuring heroine Eden Moore. She is also the author of Dreadnought and Boneshaker, which was nominated for a Nebula and Hugo Award, won the Locus Award for best science-fiction novel, and was named Steampunk Book of the Year by steampunk.com. Born in Tampa, Florida, Priest earned her master's in rhetoric at the University of Tennessee. She lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband, Aric, and a fat black cat named Spain.


"Priest has done for Chattanooga, Tennessee, what Anne Rice and Poppy Z. Brite have done for New Orleans."
""Beautifully detailed.... "Wings to the Kingdom" is more firmly based in the physical world than "Blackbirds" was, but it's every bit as fascinating. Once again, Priest succeeds in making her story both straightforward and exquisitely strange."
--"Green Man Review
""A taut, well conceived, and skillfully executed thriller by one of the brightest (darkest?) of recent newcomers to the horror field."
--"Critical Mass" on "Not Flesh Nor Feathers"
"Priest kills as a stylist." --"Charles de Lint"
"Chock-full of chilling details and soaked to the bone with suspense." --"Southern Living "on" Not Flesh Nor Feathers"
"Well-written, quick paced and detailed, every page is a shivering delight." --"BookPage" on "Not Flesh Nor Feathers"
"Cherie Priest is to dark fantasy what fresh roasted coffee is to mornings: simply essential." --Paul Goat Allen on "Wings to the Kingdom"
"A remarkably assured debut, a creepy modern-day Southern gothic that doesn't rely on cliche but delivers an emotional, powerful tale of self-discovery and the supernatural." --"San Francisco"" Chronicle "on "Four and Twenty Blackbirds"
"Breathlessly readable, palpably atmospheric and compellingly suspenseful, "Four and Twenty Blackbirds" is a considerable debut. It's written with great control and fluency, and it looks like the start of quite a career." --Ramsey Campbell
"[Priest's] voice is rich, earthy, soulful, and deliciously southern as she weaves a disturbing yarn like a master! Awesome--gives you goosebumps!" --L.A. Banks on "Four and Twenty Blackbirds"
