«Oscura y perturbadora, l. a. narrativa de Forna tiene un ritmo de gran belleza, un tono escalofriante y angustioso, verdaderamente apasionante.»
Kirkus (lectura seleccionada)

«Una novela magistral por una autora de talento... Forna despliega su historia con un ritmo de medido suspense que se lee como un thriller cocinado a fuego lento. Su prosa nos agarra por el pescuezo de manera sigilosa y a continuación aprieta con fuerza. Narrativa de máxima tensión.»
Arifa Akbar, The Independent

Jackie Annesley, London night Standard

«Una historia desgarradora sobre cómo aprendemos a vivir con nuestros enemigos, aquellos que nos han causado los daños más devastadores.»
Manasi Subramaniam, The Sunday Guardian
