Description

In Cloud County, where music and Tufa, the otherworldly fae community, intermix, a monster roams the forest, while another kind of evil lurks in the hearts of men.




"Beautifully written, surprisingly moving, and unexpected in the best of ways." --Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author

Young Tufa woman Kera Rogers disappears while hiking in the woods by Needsville. Soon, her half-eaten remains are found, and hunters discover the culprits: a horde of wild hogs led by a massive boar with seemingly supernatural strength.

Kera's boyfriend Duncan Gowen mourns her death, until he finds evidence she cheated on him with his best friend Adam Procure. When Adam's body is the next one found, who is to blame: Duncan or the monstrous swine?

As winter descends and determined hunters pursue beasts across the Appalachians, other Tufa seek the truth behind Adam and Kera's deaths. What answers will unfold come spring?

Review quote

For the Tufa novels

Reading Long Black Curl makes me so happy that there are authors writing real North American-based mythic fiction: stories that incorporate the Americas where many of us live, infusing them with their own folklore and mythology one that sits so well it feels like it's always been a part of us. Charles de Lint

Beautifully written, surprisingly moving, and unexpected in the best of ways. Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author, on The Hum and the Shiver

Captures the allure and the sometimes sinister beauty of the Appalachian backwoods." Library Journal, starred review, on Wisp of a Thing

It's no secret that music stirs the soul, and combining that with a folk-tale setting makes a deeply heart-rending novel. RT Book Reviews (four stars) on Long Black Curl

Haunting. . . . It's a mixture: folk tales and folk songs, updated with a dose of Sex and the City. Or, you might say, a rustic version of 'urban fantasy, ' with its suggestion that there's mystery just around the corner, hidden behind even the dullest small-town facade. The Wall Street Journal on The Hum and the Shiver

A lot of fun. Booklist on Long Black Curl
