Praise for Maplecroft "Cherie Priest is supremely gifted and Maplecroft is a remarkable novel, simultaneously beautiful and grotesque. It is at once a dark historical fantasy with roots buried deep in real-life horror and a supernatural thriller mixing Victorian drama and Lovecraftian myth. You won't be able to put it down."--Christopher Golden, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Snowblind Praise for Cherie Priest and her novels "Priest can write scenes that are jump-out-of-your-skin scary."--Cory Doctorow, Author of Homeland "Give Cherie Priest fifteen minutes of your time; trust me--you won't look back."--Bookslut "Priest kills as a stylist."--Charles de Lint, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction "Cherie Priest kicks ass!"--Maggie Shayne, New York Times Bestselling Author of Sleep with the Lights On
