Praise for Swim the Moon
"Fluently and passionately wrought. Fans of Charles de Lint, and others who relish the music/folklore combination, should be delighted with thie debut fantasy."
"By turns tender and tormented, this haunting, lyric Celtic rhapsody on the ancient theme of Selkies makes a bewitching debut novel. Definitely a writer to watch, Brandon has a vivid, original voice, full of poignant longing and haunting echoes."
"Brandon's first novel tells a compelling tale of one man's encounter with a creature born from wild magic. Recommended for most fantasy collections."--Library Journal
"Swim the Moon takes equal measures of realism, folklore, nightmare, and romance, brings them to a slow boil, and serves up a brew that has something of the power of the old whisky which Richard and Ailish share for a Christmas toast: 'The liquid burned over my tongue and trickled like molten metal down my throat. It was wondrously smoky, rich flavored and strong.... [T]hough I knew whisky didn't really improve once in the bottle, it was the thought of drinking something so old, so precious, that made it wonderful.' Give this book a taste - you may like its flavor."--Locusshow more
