“In this case heavy is good, very good.”
“THE BONE CHURCH (Pier’s Court Press, April 2014) by debut author Victoria Dougherty is possibly one of the darkest and most sophisticated historical novels you’ll be able to put your hands on.”
“This novel has it all….an addictive jaunt into a world of paranoia, deceit, mistrust, and then the ultimate betrayal. I really really really loved this book!”
“Dougherty (The Hungarian) develops a smoothly flowing narrative. Her vivid descriptions (such as pieces of green coconut that “look like shards of the moon”) engage the senses and pull readers into each scene. Romance and fantasy fans will appreciate the eloquent prose, historical accuracy, and diverse cast.” Book Life, Publisher’s Weekly
