Advance Praise

PRAISE FOR BOOK ONE, PERFECTLY PREVENTABLE DEATHS

'Deirdre Sullivan handles darkness in a way that instills addictive dread, but also, somehow, hope. She is a natural successor to Angela Carter - and Perfectly Preventable Deaths, a tale of rural horror, family and peril, is the Irish Gothic we deserve.' - Sarah Maria Griffin, author of SPARE AND FOUND PARTS

'This is the novel the recent Sabrina reboot wishes it could be - a thrilling, eerie exploration of sisterhood, first love and dark powers hiding out of sight.' - Dave Rudden, author of KNIGHTS OF THE BORROWED DARK

'Deirdre Sullivan has crafted a tale that is both achingly tender and unsettlingly creepy, a world where magic and love have tremendous power and devastating consequences.' - Claire Hennessy, author of NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD

'Sullivan has an eye for the uncanny, a taste for the macabre, and a gift for beautiful prose.' - Louise O'Neill

'This intoxicating, skilfully crafted novel laced with sisterhood, first love and witchcraft is sure to entice fans of Angela Carter or Melissa Albert's The Hazel Wood.' - The Bookseller, Editor’s Choice

'This book, this book. Deirdre's writing is a drug, her characters crackle and the magic is so tactile you can feel rough bark and leaves under your fingers. I swallowed this whole.' - Moira Fowley-Doyle, author of SPELLBOOK OF THE LOST AND FOUND

'Sullivan's prose bewitches in a tale featuring dark magic, supernatural predators and a plot worthy of Angela Carter' - Observer

'A dark, surreal and chilling slow-burner that'll crawl under your skin and make you wish for more.' - Culture Fly, Best Summer Reads

'Perfectly Preventable Deaths is wince-inducingly gruesome, with another properly evil villain waiting to do some unspeakable things to the unwary, but it's also frequently laugh-out-loud funny. Magic comes with a price but it's one that's worth paying nonetheless.' - SciFi Now
