RaveBookPageWorld War II and its immediate aftermath compose a well-trod territory for fiction, especially the British homefront. But I’ve never read a book that breathes life into the era quite like The Right Sort of Man ... Montclair adds in twists of melancholy ... The Right Sort of Man’s rat-a-tat dialogue is never better than when Iris is eviscerating the latest unfortunate to stand in her way, or when she’s finagling her way into a new line of inquiry ... Montclair mines fantastic comedy from both Iris’ ever-increasing portfolio of underhanded skills and the very genteel Gwen’s interactions with Iris’ motley former comrades ... Brimming with wit and joie de vivre but sneakily poignant under its whimsical surface, The Right Sort of Man is an utter delight and a fantastic kickoff to a new series.
C. L. Polk
RaveBookPage...a startlingly beautiful fantasy debut that is both magical conspiracy thriller and supernatural love story ... Polk’s reticence serves her well in Witchmark’s central love story ... Polk’s prose is never more beautiful or soothing when describing Tristan and his surroundings ... The increasing darkness of Witchmark is beautifully modulated by Polk, who slowly dims the initial vibrancy of her book, funneling the reader closer to a chilling, utterly fantastic final reveal.
