Praise for The Broken Lands…


"This seamless blend of fantasy and historical fiction is ripe with rich, gritty detail . . . Readers will be captivated."—Kirkus

"A true delight to fans of history, fantasy, and the triumph of good."—Bulletin, starred review

"Thrilling, gothic, gorgeous. Milford can conjure spirits as well as any of the mysterious wanderers who travel through her world." —Adam Gidwitz, author of A Tale Dark and Grimm

“A glimpse into a past that feels frighteningly real, The Broken Lands explodes off the page with unforgettable moments of skin-crawling terror and heart-stopping bravery. It thrilled me, enchanted me, terrified me, and by the end, made me fall in love.” —Robin Wasserman, author of The Book of Blood and Shadow

"The Broken Lands weaves hobo and drifter legends, post-Civil War Americana, and Coney Island's tawdry history into a desperately romantic, can't-put-it-down scary tale of young love and ancient magic. A superb second novel, rich, complex, and beautifully written." —Chris Moriarty, author of The Inquisitor's Apprentice

"If Milford's The Boneshaker was a combination of Ray Bradbury and American folk legends, its prequel must be what you get when fairy tales meet E.L. Doctorow." —Elizabeth Bird, Youth Materials Collections Specialist, The New York Public Library
