The Brides of Rollrock Island Synopsis

The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan

The Brides of Rollrock Island Press Reviews

Outstanding ... Margo Lanagan is a writer whose violently sexy reworkings of Grimm have previously been more for teenagers, but her new book stays within the allusive fairy tale tropes and will enthrall readers of 11+. Nothing is predictable in this astonishing novel, which expands on classic tales about selkie brides with unsettling imaginative thoroughness -- Amanda Craig The Times

Lanagan's prose is always a joy ... she shows writing of the highest order: subtle, powerful, poetic -- Marcus Sedgwick Guardian

Margo Lanagan's writing is dangerously beautiful; it knows how to dance, and it knows how to fight -- Mal Peet

Powerful, beautiful, dangerous, unsettling, truthful, earthy, challenging, poetic, wonderful, absorbing. I can't recommend it highly enough. Margo Lanagan has a unique, uncompromising and lyrical voice and she brings it to the folk myth of selkies in a soaring journey of passion and pain ... Read this selkie novel. It's heartstoppingly gorgeous. And you won't find anyone else with a voice like Margo's. Five stars The Bookbag

Atmospheric, moving and rich in detail. Fluttering Butterflies
