“Written in an amusing, witty style, [The Jacob Maresbeth Chronicles] are a great initiation into the world of the modern Gothic.”
gggggg— Tessa Harris, The Anatomist’s Apprentice (Thomas Silkstone Mysteries)
“At the end of this brief and brisk story, I was left wanting more. I can’t wait for more Jacob Maresbeth, and more novels by Brandy Schillace.”
gggggg— Sharon Bayliss, Destruction (The December People Series)
“Schillace gives us a refreshing take on the teen vampire novel. Blending humor, intriguing characters, and some unexpected twists, she has created an entertaining read and a quirky new hero who will appeal to those thirsting for intelligent young adult fiction.”
gggggg— David B. Coe/D.B. Jackson, (Winds of the Forelands,Thieftaker Chronicles)
“Brandy Schillace’s “Ghost Pine Lake,” with its hints of noir, gives us 1920s gangsters and something even more sinister than a Tommy Gun lurking in the dark depths of a seemingly tranquil fishing spot.”
ggggggg— BookLover, (Online Book Reviews)
