Reviews

"A compelling story with fascinating characters--who are so witty and whose attitude is so wry that I laughed "and" cared."--Orson Scott Card, author of "Ender's Game, " on "The Sword-Edged Blonde

""Bledsoe effortlessly draws readers into his created world."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) on "Burn Me Deadly"


"This powerful, character-driven drama, set forth in superbly lucid prose, occurs against an utterly convincing backdrop and owns complications enough to keep everybody compulsively turning the page. A sheer delight."--"Kirkus Reviews (starred review)" on "The Hum and the Shiver

""With a deep love for the mountains embedded in his language, the author crafts a deceptively simple story of family and community, laced throughout with the music and beliefs of a magical reality. . . .
