"Anne Rice meets Michael Crichton in this fever dream of a fantasy. Richly textured, terrifying, and somehow timely, Barbara Barnett's time-jumping tale will keep readers up well past their bedtime. Highly recommended!"

--Jay Bonansinga, New York Times-bestselling author of The Walking Dead Search and Destroy and Self Storage

"Looking for a new narrative world lovingly furnished with the craft and care of an older time? This book feels like Holmes."

--Jane Espenson, writer/producer of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica, and Once Upon a Time

"Myth, medicine, and immortality, braided together like the border of an illuminated manuscript."

--Doris Egan, screenwriter, novelist, and writer and co-executive producer of House

"Part medical drama, part thriller, and completely absorbing. Barnett explores the dark side of one of humanity's oldest obsessions--the quest for immortality--and tells a great story about greed, unintended consequences, and ultimately love."

--John VanZile, author of The Legend of Arkatak

"An irresistible blend of fairy folklore, science, and suspense that's sure to keep you reading late into the night."

--Shanna Swendson, author of Enchanted, Inc.

"A wonderfully entertaining and richly textured novel--truly 'high concept.' Deft evocation of characters and a wonderfully authentic use of language.... Barbara Barnett appears to really know a lot about chemistry, languages, genetics, mythology, and history"

--Mark Spencer, author of A Haunted Love Story: The Ghosts of the Allen House

"Has something for every fiction fan - sci-fi, horror, romance, and fantasy - but the story interweaves the genres so deftly that the reader is focused on the story - and what a story it is! Barbara's gift for credible, era-specific dialogue and detail is wonderful, as is her pacing and the story's pay-off."
