Books by Marcus Sedgwick
Midwinterblood (2011)
language
English
3.75 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Such an interesting, sophisticated, beautifully written book. The language reminds me a bit of Night Circus - paragraphs and sentences that you want to go back and read for the simple beauty of the text. Beginning in the future and moving back in time, the stories link together i...
Revolver (2009)
language
English
3.71 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: A rather short read, excellent for casual readers looking for a short story to fill the weekend with. The book remains mysterious with a hint of excitement throughout the entire story, keeping readers glued to the book from the start to the end, always wondering what will actuall...
She Is Not Invisible (2013)
language
English

review 1: The Benjamin effect is a very useful device in this story which manages to both get Laureth into sticky situations and get her out of them. It just so happens Benjamin is her brother but you will have to read the book to find out what effect he has. This is an fast paced story wh...
White Crow (2010)

review 1: This book unnerved me, and not in the way I expected it to. Honestly, though I love the author, I didn't enjoy it. It's a creepy story that sort of gets under your skin, and it rubbed me the wrong way somewhat. The strange thing is that I have a feeling that that is what Sedgwick...
The Ghosts of Heaven (2000)
language
English

review 1: I loved the Fourth Quarter and would have enjoyed it as an entire book, but none of the other three Quarters had quite the same impact on me. The First Quarter was just kind of miserable and depressing. The Second Quarter never really dug in to the townspeople's motivations very ...
Weisse Krähe (2000)
language
English

review 1: If you are the sort of person who wonders, maybe even a bit obsessively, if there is life after death, then this horror story should appeal to you -- both emotionally and imaginatively. Otherwise, you may have trouble entering into the spirit of the piece. There are several sto...
The Spear of Destiny (2013)
language
English

review 1: The best of the three I've read so far. Though Sedgwick's Third Doctor dialogue sometimes feels more fitting for the First Doctor (particularly the over-use of "my dear"), the story itself is very much in the spirit of the Letts era. If the rushed bits (which is what's keeping me...
The Kiss of Death (2008)
language
English
3.69 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I just love Marcus Sedgwick range as an author. He writes incredibly well on a variety of different themes and subjects, and his Kiss of Death is a wonderful example. He captures the evil and menace that lurks beneath the gaudy surface of Venice in the 17th century, where the evi...
Raven Mysteries: Flut und Fangzähne (2011)
language
English
3.79 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Flood and Fang was one of the first books on my kindle to-read list. In a nutshell, Raven (the castle’s resident raven) spots a number of potentially nasty things going on in Otherhand Castle, and tries to draw them to the attention of the weird and wonderful characters who inha...
