Reviews
"Always engaging . . . A blend of grace and gore . . . Fans of TV's "The Walking Dead" should love Mr. Jones."--Margie Romero, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
"Stephen Lloyd Jones' 2014 debut novel, The String Diaries, was a stunning, supernatural ride. His 2015 follow-up, Written in the Blood, surpasses that success, greatly expanding the world and mythology he created in an even bigger, more ambitious and more fully-realized tale. . . . A sprawling, suspenseful and massively engrossing tale, Written in the Blood spans centuries and perspectives to paint a portrait of the rise and fall of a species that incorporates politics, grudges, romance, treachery, struggle and intrigue, all masterfully spun around a handful of connected players. It's a rich story that has the detail and precision of a scholastic study thrust upon the suspense and visual grandeur of a cinematic thriller."--Brooke Wylie, Examiner.com
"An exciting and absorbing tale"--Sarah Rachel Egelman, BookReporter.com
"The pace is so fast that readers are essentially propelled through the book, carried from one character to another, bouncing around from one place in the world to another, completely caught up in the story. A novel that's just as good as the one that came before-and, in this case, that means essential reading for devotees of high-end sf."--Booklist (starred review)
PRAISE FOR THE STRING DIARIES:
"Terrifying, and deliciously so . . . A sophisticated horror story that induces elemental terror. It's perfect for the beach, particularly since you don't want to be alone with it in the dark."--New York Daily News
"The String Diaries is an engrossing, mind-bending supernatural tale, and Stephen Lloyd Jones is as exciting a new voice as I've come across in some time, a writer who understands what makes the pulse race."--Michael Koryta, author of Those Who Wish Me Dead
