Early Praise for THE RAVEN'S TALE

“A darkly delicious tale that’s sure to haunt readers forevermore. Fans of Gothic settings, made famous by Poe, will adore this creative spin on his epic poem. Like lightning stretching its fingers across a stormy sky, Winters’s voice is electrifying. The Raven's Tale is a must-read for fans of Poe and fantasy alike.”
Kerri Maniscalco, #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Stalking Jack the Ripper series

“Brooding, macabre, romantic, and surprisingly whimsical, Cat Winters's THE RAVEN'S TALE hits all the right Poe notes. The inspiration of the burgeoning artist. His tragic past. His struggle to break free from the constraints of youth. This one is a must-read for Poe fans and Poe newcomers alike.”
Kendare Blake#1 New York Times bestselling author of the Three Dark Crowns series

“Winters’s smart, silvery, slithering prose finds beauty in the grotesque—and what is art if not that?”
Daniel Krausco-author of the New York Times bestseller The Shape of Water

“A captivating and intensively researched tribute to the famous poet and his Gothic muse. Against the tapestry of young Poe’s real-world struggles and tortured relationships, Winters weaves a macabre thread of surrealism through meter and rhyme—at times so dreamy in its rhythms and imagery, it teeters between hypnotic and horrifying. I will never look at my own muse the same again, nor will I dare deny it.”
A.G. Howardauthor of the international and #1 New York Times bestselling Splintered series

“Spellbinding, imaginative, whimsical, and unforgettable. A rattling good tale that is worthy of the master poet himself.”
Dwight L. MacPhersonauthor of The Imaginary Voyages of Edgar Allan Poe, co-host of The Raven Lunatics

“Haunting and inventive, The Raven's Tale is a heady mix of history and imagination, offering an eerie, original, fantastical window into the man who would become a beloved muse for so many of us.”
Leanna Renee Hieberaward-winning author of Darker Still and Strangely Beautiful

The Raven’s Tale transports readers to the haunted streets of Antebellum Richmond, the city that shaped the teenaged Poe’s melancholy outlook and inspired his chilling poetry.”
Chris Semtner
curator of the Edgar Allan Poe Museum, Richmond, Virginia
