Editorial Reviews

Review

WINNER--Westchester Fiction Award
WINNER--AML Award for Best Young Adult Novel

"An American teen encounters monsters both fantastical and human in the landof his birth. A compelling fantasy adventure. . . . A shy boy blossomsin this surprisingly witty debut." --Kirkus Reviews

"Vodník is compelling, interesting, and darkly humorous. I think you'll love it." --Brandon Sanderson, #1 New York Times best-selling author

"This supernatural novel sets itself apart from the bulk of the genre that is so preoccupied with fangs, shape-shifters, and love triangles. . . . Moore's first published book is crammed with action and humor, and likely to hook many reluctant readers." --VOYA

"Well-written, unique, and clever. It's a breath of fresh air in a very popular genre, and I can't wait to see what Moore gives us next." --Dan Wells, author of Partials

"Recommend this equally to those interested in Eastern European culture and those who will appreciate a good jab at vampires' literary ubiquity." --Bulletin of the Center of Children's Books

From the Inside Flap

Teacups: great for tea. Really sucky asplaces-to-live-out-the-rest-of-your-eternal-existence. Very little elbow room,and the internet connection is notoriously slow. Plus, they're a real pain inthe butt to get out of, especially when you've gone non-corporeal.

When Tomas was six, someone--something--tried to drown him. And burn him to acrisp. Tomas survived, but whatever was trying to kill him freaked out hisparents enough to convince them to move from Slovakia to the United States.

Now sixteen-year-old Tomas and his family are back in Slovakia, and thatsomething still lurks somewhere. Nearby. Ready to drown him again and imprisonhis soul in a teacup.

Then there's the fire víla, the water ghost, the pitchfork-happy city folk, andDeath herself who are all after him.

All this sounds a bit comical, unless the one haunted by water ghosts and firevílas or doing time in a cramped, internet-deprived teacup is you.

If Tomas wants to survive, he'll have to embrace the meaning behind the Slovakproverb, So smrťou ešte nik zmluvu neurobil. With Death, nobody makes apact.
