Andrew Pyper, author of The Demonologist
"Moves deftly between the flashbacks of three children growing up in southern swampland (here Bayou Country in the 1990s) and contemporary scenes of the hunt for an uncanny serial killer [...] Riopelle knows what she's doing."
Faren Miller, Locus
"Vividly drawn [...] maintains a nice pace with more than a few surprises along the way."
Monsters & Critics
"Entertaining, its mystery compelling, but it was also far more emotionally complex than I’d expected [...] If you enjoy supernatural fantasy and a good ghost story then Robin Riopelle’s debut Deadroads should suit you to a tee"
A Fantastical Librarian
"...a vivid, languorous, chilling tale of the supernatural."
Linda Poitevin, author of the Grigori Legacy series
A ghost story more haunting than most, about a family more haunted than most. [ ] Dangerously easy to sink into.”
Kate Heartfield, writer and editor
