Pride of Eden by Taylor Brown – ARC Review

Taylor Brown is a truly gifted author. His prose is evocative and lyrical. He paints vivid pictures that draw you into the world of the novel. The characters he creates are unique, well-developed, believable entities. I thought Gods of Howl Mountain was unbeatable, and while Granny May will always be one of my favorite characters, Pride of Eden is every bit as gorgeous and compelling. My only quibble is that there is a scene where a dog dies. I understand why it’s in there, as it deeply affects one of the characters. However, it is usually my deal breaker, where I quit reading a book. It is a testament to Brown’s skill that, while I skimmed that part of the chapter to get past that moment, I could not toss the book aside.

Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for an early copy in exchange for my honest review. The book releases March 17, 2020 and I will definitely buy a finished copy, and probably a few for friends, too.
