Tor.com on Brimstone

Brimstone by Cherie Priest

“Brimstone is a haunting and surprisingly funny book—at turns raising the hair on your arms, and a laugh from your belly. Cassadaga is a delight, and being able to experience its intricacies and eccentricities through a newcomer’s eyes, reminded me of exploring Hogsmeade from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, or Hopewell, Illinois from Terry Brooks’s criminally underrated Running with the Demon. Priest has laid enough groundwork that a sequel seems inevitable, but also wraps things up nicely enough for the experience to feel whole and complete. With its unique mix of Americana, post-war themes, likeable characters, and swift plot, Brimstone is easy to recommend.” — Tor.com

NPR Books on Brimstone

Brimstone by Cherie Priest

“Full of charm and care, with light-hearted fun woven gently into compassionate renderings of sorrow and loss, Brimstone is equal parts affectionate romp and affecting story — not least because, given the state of the world, it’s good to read books in which hate is scarier than ghosts, love is stronger than hate, and witches simply refuse to burn.” — NPR Books

RT Book Reviews on Brimstone

Brimstone by Cherie Priest

“Priest has a knack for writing likable, well-rounded characters and putting them through some unpleasant, creepy events. The bourbon-loving, easily flustered psychic Alice might be the author’s most purely endearing protagonist yet, and Tomas, the stricken but resolute tailor, is tremendously easy to root for as well. The depictions of the various fires and some other events are vivid and at times wince-inducing. While the immediate narrative here is wrapped up nicely by the end, readers may wish for some return trips to this version of Cassadaga, Fla.” — RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

Barnes & Noble SFF on Brimstone

Brimstone by Cherie Priest

“In Brimstone, award-winning author Cherie Priest, a mistress of many genres—horror, southern gothic, science fiction, and steampunk—melds historical fiction with the fantastical, and makes magic…Cherie Priest is a deft storyteller in any genre, and history really does come alive when she puts pen to paper. Brimstone, in particular, will appeal to those who enjoy a bit of strange history to go along with their magic.” — Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi and Fantasy
