Praise for The Shadow Guests. Writing seems to be as natural to Joan Aiken as breathing; her imagination is as untrammeled as ever, the precise construction of the astonishing plot lends conviction, and her style is as witty and sparkling with images. Through interactions between characters, Aiken brings out the bittersweet ironies of friendships both otherworldly and in the here-and-now.
