Editorial Reviews

Review

"A mesmerizing, surreal retelling... Valentine’s dreamlike narrative brings the Brothers Grimm tale alive with intrigue and gritty descriptions of the Roaring Twenties." ― The Washington Post

“I'm completely confident in stating, without an ounce of hyperbole, that this is the best fairy tale retelling I've ever read... The beating heart of this book is a love of dance and a love of sisters.... Even more than the characters, their voices, or the sharp quiet slicing of the understated prose, what I loved about this book was its own tense dance with its source materials... There is so much more I want to say about this book: about the ways in which women protect and support each other; about the way they feel like antidotes to The Great Gatsby's brittle ciphers; about the pitch-perfect dialogue; about the dancing. I can't stop re-reading this book for the dancing and the fierce, scalding love the sisters have for it." -- NPR

“As sharp, sophisticated and refreshing as a flute of champagne, Genevieve Valentine’s The Girls at the Kingfisher Club will make you want to strap on dancing shoes and find an all-night speakeasy to call your own.... Ms. Valentine said, in one of the effective parenthetical asides that dot the novel, that 'some stories worked better if they weren’t true.' But this story, whimsical as it sounds on the surface, rings true in all the ways that count.” ― Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Dressed up in the thrill and sparkle of the Roaring Twenties, the classic fairy tale of 'The Twelve Dancing Princesses' has never been more engrossing or delightful. Valentine's fresh, original style and choice of setting make this a fairy tale reimagining not to be missed.” ― Library Journal (starred review)

“The novel shines… The Girls at the Kingfisher Club is like a jittery Charleston—loose, fast, and fun.” ― Booklist

"Valentine’s creative retelling of “The Twelve Dancing Princesses” is as vibrant and colorful as the era — so evocative, well drawn, well cast and well played that readers will be enthralled. This is a story of sisterhood, a passion for freedom and love that will resonate with many women. The novel calls readers to cheer on these girls as they strive for independence, and Valentine’s ability to make them each distinct and appealing sets this tale apart. Simply a delight to read!" ― Romantic Times, 4 1/2 stars

"This unexpected fairytale, deftly shifted into the age of prohibition, becomes a gorgeous and bewitching novel." -- Scott Westerfeld, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Uglies and Afterworlds

“Delightful and suspenseful by turns, this story of tyranny, pluck, fierce love and even fiercer responsibility is set in a New York of spangles and speakeasies, fox-trots and Charlestons. Valentine retains the shimmer and shadows of the fairytale that underlies her novel, even as she transforms it.” -- Christina Schwarz, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Drowning Ruth

"Valentine’s novel has glamour in spades, evocative of the Jazz Age’s fashions and dance crazes and the dark side of prohibition." ― Historical Novel Society

“Valentine raises the novel above the ordinary...Impressive." ― The New York Times
