"A darkly imaginative thriller featuring plenty of sharp characters and emotional complexity."
"Horrifying yet so compelling. I enjoyed every page!"

--Brienne Dubh, Escapology Reviews

"I'm not entirely sure how I would describe this book except to say go read it! (...) I enjoyed it immensely and fully recommend."

--Diary of a Reading Addict

"Pivot is an exciting, dark, intriguing, and ultimately enjoyable book. The pacing is exciting, and the development of Jack from innocent child to indoctrinated assassin to an aware, empowered young woman is masterfully done."

--TehBen.com Book Reviews

"A brilliant blend of mystery and horror. (...) Pivot is well plotted and the author introduces twists that readers won't see coming. L.C. Barlow takes readers on a perilous journey, crafting scenes that are emotionally charged and focused and creating characters that are both complex and real."

--Readers' Favorite Book reviews (five stars)

"An engrossing read full of twisted relationships and otherworldly powers. Barlow managed the feat of giving both the characters and the world a sense of depth. The supernatural powers--Cyrus, his enemy the man with stars in his body, and the mysterious red box that gives and takes his abilities--all have a weight and history to them, a sense of rules, that intertwine with the characters relationships in a satisfying way."

--Antonio Urias, author of The Chronicles of Talis

"An intelligent, beautifully written thriller."

--Charles Baker, IndieReader
