Editorial Reviews

Review

                                THE STOKER AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR
Reb MacRath...has a flair for horrific showmanship and an instinct for the jugular that rivals the best writers of the genre.
 --John Farris, Author of The Fury
The style in the book is engaging, evocative of snow (with all its connotations) and of the confusion of faces and places, some real, some fictional, that make up memory. The images are haunting: snowfall that passes over one person out of all beneath it; streets as dark as sin and as unknown as a man's own undiscovered inner core. It's a voyage to the heart of darkness and back, a memory of the way things were, and a dream of the way they might be. By turns tough and tender, hard-edged cynicism and yearning romanticism, this short novel will linger in the memory.
--Brad Strickland, Author of The Jim Dallas Thrillers
I loved this book but found my way into its unique heart quite strangely. Three times in three months, I found myself drawn to it compulsively, reading the first page, and then being unable to stop until I had read the whole Amazon Kindle sample (on three separate occasions!) Then I finally bought it, read the whole book, and was very glad I did.
--John Logan, Author of The Survival of Thomas Ford
MacRath expertly interweaves the past and the present timelines and the pacing of the story is fantastic. It gives the reader just enough, but doesn't give away too much too soon--- creating an atmosphere of gripping suspense and unbelievable excitement. The epilogue is pure tragic brilliance in its rawest, most heartbreaking form. I will carry this dazzling and beautifully tragic tale with me for the rest of my life.
--Felicia Moore, Amazon Reviewer
The Vanishing Magic of Snow is a beautiful book that is both heartbreaking and inspiring. Certainly a MacRathian Masterpiece. The Great American Novel as told by a narrator who was once relegated to the wilds of Canada. A great novel makes you feel something, and this book made me feel all the way through...If you've read MacRath's blog you'll know that this book is in many ways semi-autobiographical and because the author is writing from experience, even the most fantastical scene is grounded in its own reality. There is magic and miracles in the world and a shockeroo now and again. And sometimes there's an Almighty Shockeroo, like there is in this book. What is The Almighty Shockeroo? You'll just have to read and find out.
--David North-Martino, Author of Wolves of Vengeance
Highly readable, with both laughs and chills.
--Library Journal on The Suiting
Strongly original. One of a kind.
--Kirkus Reviews on The Suiting
An exotic, mysterious puzzle that's impossible to put down--and impossible to forget.
--Ray Garton on Angel Kiss

From the Back Cover

                                FROM THE REVIEW BY LEILA SMITH
    The word "lose" appears forty-nine times in this fascinating novel; "vanish" appears eight times; the mythological poet Ovid appears twice. Ovid is known for his "Metamorphoses" or transformations as he leapt from story to story; he is known for his epilogues; he is know for his writing about love and how irrational it can be -even the gods of reason fall for it. I mention this because The Vanishing Magic of Snow is similarly episodic - story to story; time to time; bound together by a steely will to survive and, of course, magic. Many chapters appear to have quotations from vanishing authors who have momentarily manifested in this novel. The word play abounds and kept me entertained ("evil's the root of all money"."He still had his things and was someone, not some has-been who'd been had till he'd been halved and now had beans.")
    This book, The Vanishing Magic of Snow, tells the illusory and illustrious tale of humans who are transformed, sometimes by love, sometimes by circumstance, sometimes by magic. Objects appear to vanish before our eyes, but are they really lost? Or has the matter been transformed into energy and vice versa? Sonny Storm, evocative of Siegfried and Roy, was transformed; Candi Lee Pike, (who sings "Excuse Me While I Disappear" and "I Put A Spell On You") was transformed; the "Hippie Magician" was transformed.Doc Marley was transformed and transformative. But was Jay transformed? That will be for us, the readers, to detect.
    We are sure about one thing: the inevitability of snow and its melting. The novel's central trope is "snow."
"We may get the snow wrong and hope to be saved. But if the snow's wrong about us, all is lost." Sometimes the snow dances; sometimes the snow sparkles; sometimes the snow freezes in this very poignantly poetic novel which ends with a nod to Real Magic and a Forward located after the Epilogue. What just happened? Well, for one thing, I, the reader was spellbound by the frozen atmospheric vapor falling to earth in light flakes, by the snow.
