Praise for Parliament of Rooks: Haunting Brontë Country:
 

The Best So Far. This is Karen Perkins's third Yorkshire ghost story, and probably the best of the bunch so far. The story draws heavily on the life of the famous Brontë sisters, the village of Howarth, and the wild and beautiful Yorkshire moors. The story weaves the Brontë family history, the tragic lives of the woolen mills workers, and an ancient mystery into the lives of a modern divorcé and her friends. The storytelling is spot-on, the prose concise, and the author's love of her subject shines through like a beacon. 6 stars. - Review by JJ Toner, author of Black Orchestra
 

Another Winner! The Haunting of Thores-Cross was so good I didn't know what to expect from Parliament of Rooks. I needn't have worried. Once more I was enthralled and completely part of the story and became one of the characters. Karen Perkins is truly a master of words, emotion, and craft. - Review by Linda George, Author of Ask a Shadow to Dance.
 

Review from the BookLife Prize 2017, by Publishers Weekly:
 
Plot: The plot moves at a good clip, most notably due to the elements of supernatural suspense and the presence of melodramatic ghosts from England's past. The suspense ratchets up as the ghosts slowly become a reality and the reason for their being comes to light.
 

Prose: Smooth, detailed prose make reading a pleasure, while vividly evocative writing places each alternating chapter firmly within the confines of its respective era.
 

Originality: Lush and atmospheric, this novel is dark and moody with supernatural elements and accurate historical details. There are also elements of superstition, which will entice readers of horror and mystical suspense. Combining 1800s Haworth and present-day Britain makes for a wonderful mix of historical and contemporary within the context of this ghost story.
 

Character Development: The characters are distinct and each one has quirks and tendencies that make him or her stand out within the narrative. As the ghosts of the past begin to make themselves known to the characters, they begin to show cracks in their resolve to stay strong. The author is talented at keeping both past and present characters authentic and accurate to their eras.
 

The BookLife Prize Winners will be announced December 2017.

About the Author

Karen Perkins is the author of seven fiction titles in the Valkyrie Series of Caribbean pirate adventures and the Yorkshire Ghosts Series. All of her fiction titles have appeared at the top of bestseller lists on both sides of the Atlantic, including the top 50 in the UK Kindle Store. Her first Yorkshire Ghost novel - The Haunting of Thores-Cross - won the silver medal for European fiction in the prestigious 2015 Independent Publisher Book Awards. Karen's latest book, Parliament of Rooks is due to be released in early 2017, and will be her third novel in the Yorkshire Ghosts Series. Set in both modern-day and Victorian Haworth - the West Yorkshire home of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte - Parliament of Rooks delves into the era of 'The Yorkshire Slavery'. Men, women and children were employed in the mills that clothed half the empire in cotton and finest worsted, often working sixteen hours a day with no provision for their safety or well-being.
