About the Author
Lyndall Clipstone writes about monsters and the girls who like to kiss them. A former youth librarian who grew up running wild in the Barossa Ranges of South Australia, she currently lives in Adelaide, where she tends her own indoor secret garden. She has a Bachelors in Creative Writing and a Graduate Diploma in Library and Information Management. She is the author of Lakesedge and Forestfall.
Clipstone's gothic slow-burn has all the right romantic dark fantasy elements--shadowy magic and a tortuous love triangle...making for prose that reads like a hypnotic incantation and love scenes that are positively incendiary. An inventive and unconventional duology closer certain to spark discussion.
A beautifully rendered, twistingly gothic tale of love, loss, longing and sacrifice. Utterly gripping, from the first page to the last. -- Vanessa Len, author of Only a Monster
Praise for Lakesedge
"Bloody, sumptuous, and as timeless as a fairy tale." --April Genevieve Tucholke, author of The Boneless Mercies A shadow-drenched fairytale that readers will happily devour. Lyndall Clipstone's lush prose lends itself to a world both dark and elegant, brimming with monsters and a young woman brave enough to face them. --Emily Lloyd-Jones, author of The Bone Houses "Lakesedge is an intense tale of mystery and magic that will have lovers of gothic romance eager for the next installment." --Juliet Marillier, author of the Blackthorn & Grim and Warrior Bards series This tasty morsel of a book is full of dark waters, family curses, summer bonfires, lakeside summoning rituals, weary boys with monsters inside them, and gods of death who don't play fair. A strong, lyrical debut from a rising star to watch. --S.T. Gibson, author of A Dowry of Blood Reminiscent of the romantically gothic atmosphere of the Phantom of the Opera. --Dawn Kurtagich, author of And the Trees Crept In and The Dead House "Lakesedge crawls into your soul, like frost growing on a window or a shadow emerging from a dark corner, and entrances you . . . a stunning debut that's sure to delight fans of Wintersong, Crimson Peak, or The Phantom of the Opera." --Rachel Strolle, Teen Librarian, Glenside Public Library
