Compulsively readable: Readers will be swept up in the beautiful descriptions of dresses and finery, the lonely grounds of the estate, the sisterhood, and the sea-related details.
Mass appeal: Full of Gothic twists and turns, folklore, romance, and a dark fairy-tale quality, it feels almost like our world, but not quite. Boasting the spectacle and scope of Caraval with a vintage maritime twist, and inspired by Grimm’s The Twelve Dancing Princesses, this will entrance a wide readership.
Stunning imagery: The cinematic quality of the writing and the visually rich descriptions of luxurious balls and dresses make for a lush, compelling read.
Enthusiastic debut author: Erin is a writer in control, with no shortage of ideas for future stories.
