Amazing Blurbs

It has been absolutely amazing the number of wonderful blurbs I have received from those who have read PIVOT. They are listed below. The one from Weston Ochse, who I met at my first World Horror Convention back in 2014, means so much to me. He encouraged me to get my MFA, when I was considering it, and I am so happy he did. My time with Nancy Holder, Liz Hand, and many others at USM’s Stonecoast program was invaluable. I can’t wait to see the movie based on Weston Ochse’s novel SEAL TEAM 666.

“Impressive and arresting prose drives this vivid debut. (…) Barlow’s gorgeous writing will easily propel readers through the rest of the series.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Horrifying yet so compelling. I enjoyed every page!”
— Brienne Dubh, Escapology Reviews

“Pivot is an exciting, dark, intriguing, and ultimately enjoyable book. The pacing is exciting, and the development of Jack from innocent child to indoctrinated assassin to an aware, empowered young woman is masterfully done.” Book Reviews

“A brilliant blend of mystery and horror. (…) Pivot is well plotted and the author introduces twists that readers won’t see coming. L.C. Barlow takes readers on a perilous journey, crafting scenes that are emotionally charged and focused and creating characters that are both complex and real.”
—Readers’ Favorite Book reviews (Five Stars)

“An engrossing read full of twisted relationships and otherworldly powers. Barlow managed the feat of giving both the characters and the world a sense of depth. The supernatural powers—Cyrus, his enemy the man with stars in his body, and the mysterious red box that gives and takes his abilities—all have a weight and history to them, a sense of rules, that intertwine with the characters relationships in a satisfying way.”
—Antonio Urias, author of The Chronicles of Talis

“An intelligent, beautifully written thriller.”
—Charles Baker, IndieReader

“Beyond good and evil, Pivot juggles archetypes until you’re not sure which ball is airborne and which is still in the author’s hand. A story about cracking free of your intended role in life, as plot and depth travel at the same exceptional speed.”
—Josh Malerman, NYT Bestselling Author of Bird Box

“Pivot is perhaps one of the best first novels I have ever read. Tight. Clean. Imaginative. It’s rare for a first-time author to create a homicidal protagonist who you want to follow. I’m eager to read more of these characters, because in Pivot, Barlow creates a universe of cruel.”

—Weston Ochse, Award Winning Author of Burning Sky


There are so many books out there to read, and I cannot thank the above people enough for taking a chance on PIVOT and writing such awesome reviews.
