Praise for White Horse by Erika T. Wurth

"Twisty and electric. . . . Wurth handles the suspense with an expert hand. The novel unfolds in short, tense chapters that glide between past and present, and often torque into hair-raising turns." --New York Times Book Review (Editor's Choice)

"An edgy delight. . . .Combines potboiler beats with an off-kilter, dreamlike atmosphere. . . . White Horse distinguishes a gritty new punkish outsider voice in American horror." --Esquire

"Excellent." --Tommy Orange, on The Today Show

"Superb. . . . An easy, fast read that almost demands to be devoured in a single sitting. . . . [Wurth] has pushed against narratives that perpetuate Native American clichés, which makes this a must-read." --NPR.org

"Crack open a cold one, pull on a well-worn band T-shirt and get ready for some spine tingles." --Good Housekeeping

"Erika T. Wurth busts onto the writing scene like a wrecking ball. . . . Glorious. . . . Creepy." --Colorado Sun

"A gritty, vibrant debut." --Nerd Daily

"An absolute stunner." --Katy Hays, bestselling author of The Cloisters

"It's metal to the end, it's Denver to the core, it's Native without trying-there's blood, there're roller coasters, and there're about a thousand cigarettes smoked. What else can you ask for in a novel?" --Stephen Graham Jones, New York Times bestselling author of The Only Good Indians

"Family ties are made from rusty barbed wire in White Horse, a book that feels as welcome as a dark bar on a hot afternoon, and whose story burns like a shot of rotgut whiskey." --Grady Hendrix, bestselling author of The Final Girl Support Group

"This ghost story is a perfect example of new wave horror that will also satisfy fans of classic Stephen King." --Silvia Moreno-Garcia, author of The Daughter of Doctor Moreau and Mexican Gothic
