Long Lankin Reviews
"Starred Review. If some of the historical exposition comes very conveniently, readers won't care - they will be too busy flipping the pages as Long Lankin closes in. A good, old-fashioned literary horror tale for sophisticated readers." - Kirkus Reviews
"Readers will likely get a sense of where the story is headed early on, but uncovering the complicated, sad history of Ida's life and the ways in which Cora and Mimi have become tangled in its legacy will compel them to its finish. Ages 12 and up." - Publishers Weekly
"This is a story to get lost in: the gloomy, rain-soaked atmosphere recalls Wilkie Collins' The Woman in White, and the endless stories of woe related by various adults become something of a dense forest - there is enough plot here for a trilogy, and it will drag down readers looking for quick thrills. Those who appreciate old-fashioned chillers, though, will be rewarded by incident after unsettling incident: witchcraft, exorcisms, fire, plagues, and a blood-drinking murderer who walks on all fours." - Booklist
