A modern day adventure for everyone. -- Russell Cook * The AND Guide *
A fun and addictive read. * LitReactor *
A wonderful, enthralling book. The Supernatural Enhancements is one of those rare literary creations that shortens the long hours of night. You emerge from its pages at sunrise, suddenly aware that you've spent the whole night reading. Few authors create such books. Edgar Cantero does it gracefully. -- Jason Mott, author of The Returned
Eerie, puckish, and full of surprises...Cantero pays homage to Bram Stoker and H.P. Lovecraft and The Shining, but he's no less enamored of The X-Files, fax machines, and punk girls with dreads. The result is a propulsive, beguiling novel that is as easy to get swept up in as it is hard to describe. -- Justin Taylor, author of Flings and The Gospel of Anarchy
Cantero sets the novel up to be one type of mystery and then he lets other mysteries float into the story. It's not that he invalidates earlier mysteries . . . but rather he makes them no longer as important because this next one is crazy!
Southern gothic meets Euro hipness in Catalan novelist Cantero's inventive, enjoyable outing in postmodern mystery writing...Quirky in presentation and good fun throughout, Cantero's yarn pleases at every turn.* Kirkus *
Cantero's fresh, original prose style and the steady flow of twists, turns, and code breaking will have mystery, thriller, and supernatural fans glued to their seats until they reach the electrifying conclusion. * Library Journal (Starred Review) *
The kinetic action of a graphic novel wrapped up in a literary thriller. * The Free Lance-Star (Fredericksburg) *
A clever and engrossing horror-thriller mash-up that delivers genuine scares. * Buffalo News *
