The Only Child in the Toronto Star

Wanted to share a feature review of The Only Child in today’s Toronto Star.

It makes it sound like the kind of book I’d most definitely want to read. If I didn’t already know the story. And knew where all the ideas came from. And the research the author did. And hadn’t written it myself.

“Pyper upends genre conventions once again…a high-concept dark fantasy novel. Lily’s journeys with a monster who inspired the very literary tradition Pyper so skilfully exploits provides…a satisfying confrontation with darkness, both personal and mythological, that readers expect from the best horror.”
