-RT Book Reviews, “Wrapping Up Paranormal Month…” 

“Written in a passionate, inviting voice, The Vespertine is a rich, historical novel of otherworldly power, forbidden romance, and questionable motives. From the very first line, readers will be swept up in Amelia’s plight to discover her own powers and find the courage to face her fears, her blossoming love, and even accusations of murder.”

“I savored every word of The Vespertine; I knew it was an amazing book from the first page and I was entranced until the very last. Saundra Mitchell’s descriptions are almost truer than truth- you feel them rather than know them.”

Carrie Ryan New York Times Bestselling Author of the critically-acclaimed The Forest of Hands and Teeth series.

“Dark and luxurious with rich, compelling characters and a perfect blend of the mysterious and the fantastic, Saundra Mitchell’s The Vespertine is Victorian gothic at its finest–at once evoking the lyricism of Bronte, the heart-pounding of Poe and a vivid, enticing voice that is entirely her own.”

Sarah MacLean New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of The Season and the Love by Numbers series.

“A beautiful, rich, Victorian era story that is both haunting and romantic. Saundra Mitchell’s THE VESPERTINE reads like a classic and has a voice that stays with you long after you read it. ”
