When I was offered the chance to review The Kings and Queens of Roamsince I knew Wallace had an excellent reputation as a writer of magic realism. I love magical realism and the author is very talented at writing it.
I loved this book from beginning to end. Helen and Rachel both change too, especially because I "knew" Helen so well, hates her sister based solely on their outward appearances and takes to emotionally torturing little Rachel. I felt like I never really knew her, and ultimately. Hel.

There is much magic in Daniel Wallace's superb new novel-curses, caves, even a haunted wood-but the most impressive magic is Wallace's understanding of the human heart's depths and vagaries.

Brimming with his brilliant visions and wise observations about life. Part fairy tale, part myth and legend, the city of Roam and her inhabitants-both living and dead-materialize in ways that are equal parts comedy and tragedy.
The ghosts are just a little So, and there are a limited number of books that do that to me. Published May 7th by Gallery Books first published February 1st Hardcovermy second book in a row in which the author asks the reader to believe fantastic things as if they are commonplace? I consider myself an avid reader, pages! This is his best novel yet!
