Brilliant Reviews for In the Moors
My first crime fiction In the Moors was released in the US yesterday, and already, two reviews are in!
Kirkus Reviews says… Children’s author Milton’s adult debut creates a mystical world in which the secret to a missing child may be locked in the subconscious of a leading suspect…A fast-moving thriller likely to draw in readers despite, or perhaps because of, its bizarre heroine.
And an even better review from the Library Journal, which is the periodical that US booksellers take their cue from. They often base their orders for copies of new book using the fames 'stared reviews' in the journal. Getting a starred review is an honour and the Library Journal has given In the Moors a starred review!
…Sabbie Dare is the most compelling protagonist I’ve met this year, and Milton’s tale is riveting. Perhaps readers will figure things out before Sabbie does, but the visceral suspense Milton creates is commendable, not to mention terrifying. I like pairing her work with Elly Griffiths’s atmospheric English mysteries.
The UK publication date for this book is October 15th 2013 but don’t forget that you can purchase a copy of In The Moors ahead of that date – I’ll be having a one-off special signing with a reduced cover price on In the Moors on the 12th of September 2013 at Foyles Book Shop in Cabot Circus Bristol. Everyone is welcome to this event which is from 6 - 8pm.
