The Hum and the Shiver
by Alex Bledsoe
Tor, $15.99, 346pp
Release Date: September 27, 2011

Mr. Bledsoe is also the author of the Sword Edged Blond and Burn Me Deadly.

No one knows the origin of the Tufa. They were here when the Europeans came to America . But there are clues in the folk songs passed down for generations as the Tufa live their quiet lives in Cloud County , Tennessee .

Private Bronwyn Hyatt returns from Iraq shattered in mind and body only to face the troubles that drove her away; but now, more trouble lurks in her mountain home. There are cryptic omens warning of tragedy and Bronwyn has lost touch with her music. Death is stalking her family and she must gather the strength to take her place among the Tufa and fly the night winds.

Bledsoe writes a compelling story rooted in Tennessee 's history and music. The world is believable, the characters beautifully drawn, drawing the reader into caring deeply about them. The dialogue is rich, full of character, attitude and reflecting the gestalt perfectly. This is a keeper. One of the best, if not the best, book I read in 2011. It is a must-read that you'll treasure. ~~ Pam Allan
