"A seductive work of paranormal horror that will draw readers into its cold and gloomy world. ...This novel will thoroughly satisfy readers looking for suspense, horror and a grisly good time."--Kirkus Reviews
"Crisp and shiveringly disturbing prose, a solid plot, and well-developed characters all make for a deeply satisfying read."--Publishers Weekly
"Fast paced and filled with lively details, Gordon's prose propels readers into a fantastical world that is haunting to the very end."--Shelf Awareness
"With a superbly drawn supporting cast....and a singularly fantastic location, Gordon has created a wonderful entry in the field of contemporary fantasy. She's sure to attract a legion of fans, eager for her next book. Highly recommended."--SFRevu
"I definitely recommend Gideon to anyone who loves dark urban fantasy stories."--Gizmo's Reviews
"A deliciously creepy paranormal thriller, Gideon sucks you in one step at a time until you are well and truly caught in the story. Highly recommended."--Anne Bishop, New York Times bestselling author of the Black Jewels trilogy
"Anchored by well-crafted prose that features a creepy-as-hell villain, Gideon feels like Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" brilliantly reconceived in a Neil Gaiman-esque universe. Gordon hooks readers from page one ... making for a book that is impossible to put down."--RT Book Reviews (4.5 stars)
"This debut supernatural tale does a solid job of portraying the menace of small-town evil. ... This will appeal to fans of books such as Katherine Howe's The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane or Deborah Harkness's A Discovery of Witches."--Library Journal (starred review)
"...Gideon delivers a fast-paced plot that makes you want to finish it in a day, even if you don't have time. ...Gordon's descriptions of the petty jealousies and the insular nature of a small town make this paranormal novel feel scarily realistic."--Washington Post
"...An engaging and suspenseful story."--Booklist
