Enthusiastic Early Praise for The London Séance Society...
"Just when I thought Sarah Penner could not surpass her epic debut, The Lost Apothecary, she returns with an utter stunner. Readers will savor this suspenseful tale of the occult as they are drawn into a world unlike any other. At the top of her game, Penner shines, and the result is breathtaking!" —Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Girls of Paris
"Sarah Penner brings history to vivid life in this atmospheric and evocative whodunnit steeped in suspense, mystery, and illusion." —Nita Prose, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Maid
"Penner has conjured up another winner. Bristling with tension and featuring strong women who aren’t afraid to defy conventions, this gothic mystery is both smart and seductive. Haunting in the best of ways, I swear I could feel the London fog on my cheek (or was that a spirit…) as I flew through the pages." —Fiona Davis, New York Times bestselling author of The Magnolia Palace
"Trick candles, fake messages from the dead, and other secrets of the séance trade are fodder for this brilliant novel set in 19th Century London and Paris. When a grieving young woman apprentices with a world-famous medium to investigate her sister’s murder, she finds herself communing with ghosts, spirits and demons both living and dead…and discovers secrets too sinister, and supernatural powers too deep, to imagine. THE LONDON SÉANCE SOCIETY is an explosive, immersive, time-bomb of a novel. Vengeance is never sweeter than in Sarah Penner’s hands." —Laurie Lico Albanese, award-winning author of HESTER
"When a book jacket has both Sarah Penner's name and the word "séance" - the novel has got to be good. Once again, Penner has conjured up a tale that will have readers spellbound. Full of twists, mystical mysteries, and surprise endings THE LONDON SEANCE SOCIETY is a spirited work of historical fiction." —Pamela Klinger-Horn, The Valley Bookseller
"Sarah Penner is back - this time taking readers into 1870s London and the world of the séance. A historical thriller with a psychic twist, THE LONDON SEANCE SOCIETY is a suspenseful thrill ride filled with feminist energy!" —Mary O'Malley, Skylark Bookshop
"It's hard to believe, but Penner surpassed her other book, The Lost Apothecary, which is one of my all time favorites. Penner is an author to watch." —Rosemary Smith, librarian
