 "Absolutely captivating. The author uses beautiful descriptions to create an otherworldly feel and a read you can't put down. Highly recommended!"

"This is most definitely the kind of book you can get yourself lost into and that has you turning page after page to see its mysteries unravel. I feel like it did some great things playing with the idea of that dynamic between politics and witchcraft and then also the 'snapchat generation' and witchcraft."

"Emily Sadovna’s The Haunting of Violet Gray is a book with great promise, combining an intriguing premise and a filmic plot with a lot of interesting and thought-provoking ideas"

"Centred on the three main prongs of witchcraft, time travel and conspiracy, this is one of the more creative, imaginative reads out there right now, and the novel’s twists and turns do have the potential to surprise and delight readers. The descriptions are impressive and otherworldly, and Sadovna really has created a supernatural atmosphere of intrigue, suspense and suspicion,"
