"It has the feel of a classic fairy tale. It's the most elegantly constructed, chilling story that makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck" ( Jacqueline Wilson)
"Deeply satisfying and deserves to become a classic" ( TES)
"Exciting, scary, romantic and deliciously readable" ( Guardian)

Almost like clockwork ...
