What the Critics Say

"Greylands is deeply satisfying from both aesthetic and psychological perspectives. Isobelle Carmody excels in creating this imaginary world ... The real and imaginary worlds coalesce perfectly in the dramatic conclusion." (Lyn Linning - Magpies Magazine)
"An unforgettable metaphor for grief.... One of the strengths of the story is its recognition of children's emotions...." (Lian Hearn)
"[Carmody] has a lot of fun with the taxonomy of her worlds, the creatures living within them, and the powers they hold." (Sophie Masson)
