Reviews
PRAISE FOR RELUCTANT IMMORTALS

"This is a timely and entertaining tale... Kiste wraps it all together in a package that never feels preachy and has the flair one would expect from an author of her caliber."
--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"An engrossing thought experiment that reexamines classic literature through a 21st century lens... The novel is a timely metaphor for women refusing to stay quiet about the abuse they've undergone."
--Criminal Element

"An ode to forgotten women everywhere, a tale where every detail satisfyingly matters as readers rush to the emotional conclusion... Kiste's first book from a major publishing house brings her award-winning, feminism-fueled horror to more readers."
--Library Journal

"The award-winning Kiste delves into the never-changing existence of two misunderstood, undead survivors of intimidation and violence... Fans of Gothic horror with a literary twist will be delighted."
--Booklist

"Kiste pulls women out of the shadows of their oppressors and into the light from the fire of their own rage... genius."--Sarah Read, Bram Stoker award-winning author of The Bone Weaver's Orchard
