Brilliant, beautiful, gripping, a necessary read - Anna Smith Spark, author of The Court of Broken KnivesMexican Gothic is the subversive, seductive, satisfying haunted house story I didn't know I needed. I genuinely couldn't put it down - Alix E. Harrow, author of The Ten Thousand Doors of JanuaryMexican Gothic is an intense, beautiful monster of a novel. Moreno-Garcia's gothic plot is as sharp as a razor and twice as dangerous. Like any good terror, I couldn't look away. Lush and lyrical writing makes this a vivid, seductive read - A. J. Hackwith, author of The Library of the UnwrittenThis was lovely. Reminded me of the old Mary Stewart romance mysteries mixed with a healthy dose of Lovecraftian horror--in other words, a classic Gothic horror romance, told with perfect skill and elan. Can't say I'm surprised though: Moreno-Garcia is a master who writes with a deft hand and a flare for beautifully evocative details. Seriously loved everything about it, which was so engaging I read the whole thing last night - Jenn Lyons, author of The Ruin of KingsTo use the author's own phrase, there's a 'velvet black decadence' to Mexican Gothic - it is a luscious, sensuous take on a haunted house novel that will effortlessly wrap you in its spell. I loved it - Alison Littlewood, author of MistletoeClever, wicked and winning. Moreno-Garcia well and truly hits the mark with Mexican Gothic - Angela Slatter, author of the World Fantasy Award-winning The Bitterwood Bible and Other Recountings
