Reviews

"This novella reads like something torn out of the pages of Charles Dickens or Thomas Hardy--a dark coming-of-age saga set in the pastoral, pre-modern English countryside."--Aurealis Magazine

"I love the structure of Ormeshadow--each chapter a kind of story unto itself and yet all flowing smoothly together. If you like graceful writing in your fantasy fiction, depth of character, and a connection to real life issues, this is a perfect read." --Jeffrey Ford

"This is exactly the kind of book that I enjoy. The skillful creation of atmosphere, the touching and painful interaction of characters, the sense of creeping dread, and the sheer beauty and skillfulness of Sharma's prose prove what I thought when I read her short stories: that she is one of the most powerful writers of fantastical fiction working today. The complexity of Ormeshadow's narrative is underscored by Sharma's use of THE telling detail, but not much else. This is a fully-realised world populated with living, breathing characters whose emotions positively seethe." --Tade Thompson
