The crooked smiling liar River West, who drove into Violet's life one summer day and shook her world to pieces, is gone. Violet and River's brother Neely are left to worry until they catch an eerie radio broadcast about strange events in a distant mountain town. They take off cross country in search of River, but are always a step behind, finding instead frenzied towns, witch hunts, and a wind whipped island with the thrum of something strange and dangerous just below the surface. It isn't long before Violet begins to wonder if Neely, the only one she thought trustworthy, has been hiding a secret of his own and for her, the devil always lurks in the shadow of a secret.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Between the Spark and the Burn

"Horror and romance blend seamlessly in Tucholke's distinctive prose. She understands the genre well, and women looking for such guilty pleasures will be hard pressed to find better examples. Readers who loved Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea will enjoy the sequel, with its uniquely stilted, poetic tone and slow-burn pace that enhances both sexual and horror tension."--VOYA

"The faded opulence of the setting is an ideal backdrop for this lushly atmospheric gothic thriller, which, happily, comes with a satisfying conclusion. Darkly romantic and evocative."--Kirkus Reviews

"The lush and polished prose, eerie locales, and pervading sense of dark unease are just as engrossing as they were in the first installment. . . .The twists, secrets, and Redding-brand mayhem make this a worthy successor."--School Library Journal

"Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is a stunning debut with complex characters, an atmospheric setting, and a distinct voice." - VOYA, starred review
