“A startlingly original book.” ―Booklist on Wide Open
“Magic blows through Deborah Coates' Wide Open like the violent thunderstorms of the high plains. This contemporary fantasy is the very best of its genre, from its cinematic landscape, to the compelling twists of the plot, to the building relationships between characters that leap off the page to live in the imagination. Very, very highly recommended. The best contemporary fantasy you'll read this year.” ―Sarah Prineas, author of The Magic Thief, on Wide Open
“Wide Open is a good read--full of sound and fury, ghosts and fire. A tough, tenacious heroine who relies on guts and brains rather than awesome cosmic superpowers. I loved it. Deborah Coates is a storyteller in the best sense of the word.” ―Patricia Briggs, New York Times bestselling author, on Wide Open
“[The setting] sticks with you, and the lead character of Hallie does too. . . . Compelling.” ―Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood, on Wide Open
“A story about the sense of community and steadfastness present in the Midwest. . . . In times of trouble, we turn to one another and show our true (and hopefully best) selves. Coates captures this beautifully.” ―The Gazette (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) on Wide Open

That said, while this was a really enjoyable book and I did give it five stars, in this particular book I noticed a lot of repetitive writing, like the author kept getting hung up on certain things, for instance writing a piece of dialog and tagging it "he said it like <something else entirely>." Was it like this in previous books and I didn't notice? Or is this a new quirk of the author? Or perhaps one she always had but which an editor previously tamed and is now allowing to run free?
Hallie and Boyd find themselves back in someone else's game, but this time they're ready to take on whatever the hell is happening.
