A Most Anticipated Book of 2023 by LitHub, Polygon, Library Journal, and more!"A reflective and poetic take on the nature of immortality... Holland's refreshing vampires lean philosophical as they struggle with immense grief and loneliness."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Through decadently vivid prose... this hefty novel meditates on major themes such as life, love, and death with exceptional acumen. A new and contemplative take on the vampire novel."
--Kirkus Reviews "Atmospheric prose and excellent character development. Great for fans of Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire and V. E. Schwab's The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue."
"A masterful debut novel... Holland proves herself to be the god of endings as she ties everything together and delivers a multi- layered emotional punch at the end of the novel that both questions and affirms the nature of life and human existence.... Let's hope that [this] is just the beginning for Jacqueline Holland."
--Grimdark Magazine "Sweeping and evocative, this novel is a beautiful journey through the centuries of a wholly unique life. It explores the savagery of loss and grief and the paradoxical fragility and endurance of love. It raises powerful and thought-provoking questions about motherhood, and how to live, and the ending will stay with me for a long time in the best possible way."
--Jennifer Saint, author of Elektra and Ariadne "Holland's lush prose welcomes the reader into a new kind of vampire story, and the result is a surprising and spellbinding tale of struggle and love and protection that leaves you wondering who the real monsters are."
--Laura Moriarty, New York Times bestselling author of The Chaperone "The God of Endings is propulsive, a compelling rumination on what makes a life worth living. Spanning centuries and continents, an immortal narrator grapples with her own humanity--or lack thereof--in this dazzling debut."
--Lily Brooks-Dalton, author of Good Morning, Midnight
