Reviews

"The Enchanted is instead a testament to the power of words, of language and symbols to reshape one's reality, and it is an extraordinarily empathetic look at the sorrows and joys of even the worst aspects of human life."--The Oregonian
"The Enchanted is unlike anything I've ever read. . . . Contagious and seductive. The reader comes to see through Denfeld's strange lens, and to savor the richness of the view long after the final page has turned."--Katherine Dunn, author of Geek Love
"[An] impressive debut. . . . Read this magical book, and prepare to be spellbound."--Library Journal (starred review)
"Rene Denfeld is a genius. In The Enchanted, she has imagined one of the grimmest settings in the world--a dank and filthy death row in a corrupt prison--and given us one of the most beautiful, heart-rending, and riveting novels I have ever read."--Donald Ray Pollock, author of The Devil All The Time
"The Enchanted explores the complexities of many crucial issues, including how we treat our children and the vulnerable and the consequences of our actions. It also makes us ask whether our personal behavior, social policies, and the justice system perpetuate more pain than otherwise for humanity."--New York Journal of Books
"The Enchanted wrapped its beautiful and terrible fingers around me from the first page and refused to let go after the last. A wondrous book that finds transcendence in the most unlikely of places . . . So dark yet so exquisite."--Erin Morgenstern, author of The Night Circus
"A striking one-of-a-kind prison novel. . . . [with] rich, haunting prose . . . A stunning first novel from an already accomplished writer."--Publishers Weekly
"Evocative. . . . Denfeld's humanizing of the potential for horror that is within all of us and her insistence that the reader see the beauty in the darkest corners of life sizzles through her sharp prose, which both makes us flinch and invites us to imagine."--Booklist
"If you enjoy mystery and suspense as well as a bit of magic and horror you will find it all here. The story is enthralling and keeps you reading far into the night."--Seattle Post-Intelligencer
