Trudchen grew up hearing Odette’s stories of their monster-slaying mother and a magician’s curse. But now that Tru’s older, she’s starting to wonder if her older sister’s tales were just comforting lies, especially because there’s nothing fantastic about her own life—permanently disabled and in constant pain from childhood polio.

In 1909, after a two-year absence, Od reappears with a suitcase supposedly full of weapons and a promise to rescue Tru from the monsters on their way to attack her. But it’s Od who seems haunted by something. And when the sisters’ search for their mother leads them to a face-off with the Leeds Devil, a nightmarish beast that’s wreaking havoc in the Mid-Atlantic states, Tru discovers the peculiar possibility that she and her sister—despite their dark pasts and ordinary appearances—might, indeed, have magic after all.

4.5 A tale of two sisters. And monsters.
Odette is the storyteller and warrior. Trudchen is the psychic, finding portents of monsters in the tea leaves. Or, Od is the wild, ruined runaway, and Tru is the frail cripple. There's more than one way to tell a story, and the lens you look through can make sense of an impossible world. Winters su...

5.0 Odd & True
This novel was fun and entertaining. The story moved quickly and with gusto. I liked True’s apprehension and then later as the novel progressed, the fire that is ignited within her. I liked Od’s love for her sister and the determination that she had to succeed. I loved the variety of characters, the...
