The Shining meets About a Boy in this electrifying debut about a troubled young woman and a lonely boy facing their demons in the frozen Black Hills.
The town is eerily quiet and Emma takes shelter in a diner, where she stumbles across Earl, a strange little boy in a tinfoil mask who steals her gun before begging her to help him get rid of "George." As she is pulled deeper into Earl's bizarre, menacing world, the horrors of Emma's past creep closer, and she realizes she can't run forever.
Tinfoil Butterfly is a seductively scary, chilling exploration of evil-how it sneaks in under your skin, flaring up when you least expect it, how it throttles you and won't let go. The beauty of Rachel Eve Moulton's ferocious, harrowing, and surprisingly moving debut is that it teaches us that love can do that, too.
"Unrelenting and artfully crafted, this haunting debut and its tortured protagonist easily cement Moulton as a must-read writer in the horror genre. . . The narrative, both disturbing and irresistible, is propelled by these two well-imagined characters and their need for each other. This is a gripping tale of terribly human horrors."
"Reading Tinfoil Butterfly is like watching a slick, modern horror movie, in which you start to realize the real terror comes from being a woman in this world and all the negotiations that involves. Clever, timely, disturbing, and thought-provoking."
"Rachel Eve Moulton's deliciously terrifying and eerily poetic debut novel about a wounded young woman and the mysterious child she meets on a nightmare stop in the desolate Black Hills is irresistible. Fair warning: The snow comes with blood, the crows can't be trusted, and Tinfoil Butterfly flutters with a dark heartbeat you won't soon forget."
"I have read no book like this. Tinfoil Butterfly took my breath on the first page and never gave it back. A dark adventure story that leads to an epic reckoning, all told in the most taut and vivid prose."
"Vivid and cinematic in its storytelling, Tinfoil Butterfly's breathless and scary stumbling, tumbling journey into horrors had my heart in my mouth the whole way through. And yet the beautifully drawn friendship that evolves between Emma and Earl ensures that this story brims with hope and humanity. An unforgettable read."
