“ The rise of Hollywood brought together an amazing diverse population to work together to create movies. And what they created went around the world because you didn’t need a common spoken language to understand it. That was always key to the plot.”
Paul Semel, Interview with Rosemary Jones, author of Mask of Silver

“What I always hope readers get out of my books is an enjoyable adventure. I love playing these games. I try to infuse that fun into what I write.”

“Not just a great tie-in story, but a great story period.”

Goodreads

“The adventure elements of the story are strong, as Betsy indulges her addiction to adrenaline rushes with the assistance of her pilot friend, Wini Habbamock.”
Chris L. Owens

“Jones once again provides a fast-paced and deeply compelling narrative as Betsy bull-headedly strives into the morass of chaos and corruption in the midst of Arkham and Innsmouth, and her skillful prose is immediately put to work in not only developing both the overarching Arkham Horror setting”
Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviewer

“Silent movies and quietly unsettling cosmic horror just seem like such a good match, and the pulpy but creepy Arkham Horror setting is a perfect place for this story to live – this isn’t a story concerned with jump scares, gore or anything outright nasty, but anyone interested in a creepy tale of life mirroring art in the era of silent movies is in for a treat”
Track of Words

“This is a suspense story more than it is horror and we see it all through Jenny Lin’s eyes. Jenny knows that Sydney is up to something. She knows the house is helping him. She knows that Renee is the pivot point and that the silver mask is evil. The suspense builds as recurring nightmares, inexplicable events, unlikely injuries, cast disappearances, and other accouterments of horror tales start happening as the solstice approaches.”
SFRevu

“This has the vibe of a matinee movie, but also a strong detective story. As always, at the end of these books those who survive are forever changed by their encounters with the Great Unknown – as are we, the reader.”
The Catbox

“For some thrills set at the seashore (and we know what kinds of things live in the sea) pick up The Deadly Grimoire and take yourself back to 1926 and get a little wing walking for your reading pleasure.”
Happy Horror Writer

“Jones manages to capture the horror and mystery of the game and pairs this perfectly with a pulpy and rip-roaring 1920s setting.”
What You Tolkien About

“The Deadly Grimoire is an interesting addition to the Arkham Horror line, one that brings a very different kind of energy to things. It has more of a focus on the glory days of Hollywood, features silent movie stars, stung pilots, and dangerous bootleggers over the more otherworldly horror aspects. Whilst this may leave some people wanting more cosmic horror than is in the book, those wanting to spend some time with some interesting characters and getting to know a bit more about Arkham will come away satisfied.”

“This is a suspense story more than it is horror and we see it all through Jenny Lin’s eyes. Jenny knows that Sydney is up to something. She knows the house is helping him. She knows that Renee is the pivot point and that the silver mask is evil. The suspense builds as recurring nightmares, inexplicable events, unlikely injuries, cast disappearances, and other accouterments of horror tales start happening as the solstice approaches.”
SF Revu

“Chilling, horrifying and thought-provoking in equal measure, Mask of Silver is a superlative piece of Arkham Horror fiction from Rosemary Jones, and is perhaps one of the best titles in the setting yet published by Aconyte Books. ”
Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviewer

“If you enjoy well-researched historical fiction and horror that is more about creepiness and something awful lurking nearby, you’ll enjoy Mask of Silver. Fans of Arkham Horror and other Lovecraftiana will also enjoy this clever twist on one of the mainstays of the Mythos.”
History That Never Was

“Absolutely gripping… I absolutely do recommend this, for the mood of Golden Age silent movies combined with ancient unknowable evils. Magic of all kinds, and regular folks trying to survive in many ways. I loved Mask of Silver, and am very much looking forward to the next title in this excellent series.”
The Catbox

“I may have a new favorite Arkham story: Mask of Silver… [a] slow-burn work of unsettling horror.”
Fistful of Meeples

“A slow burn, low-key tale of cosmic horror.”
Strange Assembly

Mask of Silver definitely earned a five out of five from me, it is definitely worth giving a shot if you get the chance.”
