Praise for Stef Penney:
"Fascinating."-- "The New York Times"
"Utterly new and utterly enthralling."--New York Times bestselling author Tana French
"An original and readable mixture of mystery and history, with a good dollop of old-fashioned adventure."-- "The Times (London)"
"The novel has a large canvas and the story twists and turns. An entertaining and well-written adventure thriller."-- "The Spectator"
"A fascinating, suspense-filled adventure, a refreshing contrast to the conventional murder mystery."-- "The Sunday Telegraph (London)"
"Penney gives her plot plenty of twists and saves the best for the end, with a truly unforeseen and unpredictable conclusion."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"The Beasts of Paris is an absorbing, rich portrait of a city falling apart. Penney, who won the Costa Book of the Year Award in 2006, draws her main characters, and Paris itself, with great skill and tenderness."--The Times (London)
"Electrifying. The final 150 pages are astonishing, to be read breathlessly, compulsively and at speed through your fingers -- and yet it's all so well crafted, it's a shame not to take your time. In its balancing of exhilaration and horror, love and terror, despair and resurgence, The Beasts of Paris is a triumph."--The Guardian
"Journeys of self-discovery and survival unfold alongside a heartfelt love story. Penney presents a sweeping look at Paris under siege while showing how innocents, human and animal alike, suffer during wartime. Well-rounded characters and brisk pacing are strong points in this involving tale about a volatile time."--Booklist
