The sequel to Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea:

SparkandBurnHIGHRESFINAL

“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.” –SLJ

**********

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

* “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.”

–Booklist starred review

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea” will slip under your skin and capture the darkest corners of your imagination. A hypnotic, terrifying debut.”Nova Ren Suma, author of Imaginary Girls

“Tucholke’s story of devils, innocence, and family secrets is lush, and rhythmic as a song. Seductive with a capital ‘S’.”Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood and Girl of Nightmares
