“His best book yet.” —Geeks OUT
“Does not disappoint and grabs you from the opening chapter straight to the end with plot twists that are dark and thrilling…The transitions between modern-day and French colonial slavery are exquisite and leave the reader intrigued throughout the narrative. Rice also creates a beautiful mythology infused with a thriller that gives you many shocks and oh-my-God moments in every chapter.” —Buzzfeed
“As gothic as one could expect from the author (The Heavens Rise) and son of Anne Rice, this tale of evil vegetation that feeds on the blood of those seeking revenge for past wrongs is gruesome…There are dark thrills for horror fans.” —Library Journal
