“Terrifying and new . . . this is satisfying, disturbing horror for the modern YA audience.” 

Publishers Weekly

“These chilling tales are full of suspense and dread that will haunt readers long after the last page has been turned.”

—School Library Journal

“Murderous neighbors, creepy bathtubs, and lots of blood . . .  Full of thrills and chills [and] gross, creepy fun.”

—Kirkus Reviews *******


“Violet is both intuitive and naïve, capable of profound revelation . . . The faded opulence of the setting is an ideal backdrop for this lushly atmospheric gothic thriller, which, happily, comes with a satisfying conclusion. Darkly romantic and evocative.”

Kirkus Reviews

 “The lush and polished prose, eerie locales, and pervading sense of dark unease are as engrossing as they were in the first installment.”


“Horror and romance blend seamlessly in Tucholke’s distinctive prose. . . Those already captured by Tucholke’s previous installment will not want to put this one down.”

* “Tucholke’s gothic tone, plot, and setting, complete with a deteriorating estate full of dark family secrets, is reminiscent of Daphne du Maurier or YA fare such as Kami Garcia’s and Margaret Stohl’s Beautiful Creatures.”

-SLJ starred review

* “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is a stunning debut with complex characters, an atmospheric setting, and a distinct voice. Tucholke’s command of imagery and language is especially striking…Tucholke has real talent and, hopefully, will be writing for years to come.”

–VOYA starred review

* “People die; children stalk the cemetery with stakes; and strange, alluring River delights and frightens Violet in equal measure…the faded elegance that permeates almost every page, elevates this above more generic offerings of its type. Violet, too, has a quirky uniqueness that will draw readers, just as it draws River—for better or worse.”
