The Diviners Christmas Round-Up

Posted by in Blog, News, Reader Feedback, Recommended Reading

Looking for a truly absorbing Christmas read?  The Diviners will transport you to the jazz-filled speakeasies of 1920s New York, where showgirls dance and dazzle – yet a restless wind sweeps the city’s streets.

As well as some amazing reviews when it published, The Diviners has been getting some wonderful mentions in the Christmas round-ups:

‘Exquisitely crafted… a joy from start to end’
Heat, Best New Series of 2012

‘Superb… She’s (Evie) posi-tute-ly (as she herself would say) the best heroine to have appeared in young adult fiction in recent years: witty, loyal and brave, she has powers of divination, and also loves escaping from nightclub raids and hanging out with chorus girls.  Intoxicating, suspenseful, dark and funny, it’s a novel that teens (and grown-ups) will drink down in gulps’ Literary Review, Children’s Books for Christmas

‘My children’s book of the year is, without a doubt, Libba Bray’s fantastically involving The Diviners, which features a flapper heroine and a killer back from the dead.’
Philip Womack’s choice, Telegraph Christmas Books of 2012

The Diviners by Libba Bray is posi-tute-ly the duck’s quack.  Evie O’Neill is sharp as a tack and with a mouth like Dorothy Parker.’
Sunday Telegraph, Children’s Books Christmas round-up
