"Nancy Kilpatrick is an adventurous writer of erotic horror." - Poppy Z. Brite
"The Darker Passions are good, cleanly written smut for adults who appreciate a look at classic horror through a decidedly decadent eye. The books are, in a way, little masterpieces of their own." - Paula Guran (Dark Echo)
"Well written and imaginative, Amarantha Knight gives fresh impetus to this myth. taking us through the sexual and sadistic scenes with details that keep us reading ... This author shows superb control. A classic in itself has been added to the shelves." - Divinity
