Wild Talent reviewed in The New York Review of Science Fiction


In the April 2009 issue of The New York Review of Science Fiction reviewer Ursula Pflug writes that "acclaimed Canadian author Eileen Kernaghan ... is known both for her painstaking historical research and her interest in diverse cultural and historical manifestations of spirituality. Wild Talent is no exception."

Pflug goes on to note that Alexandra David, one of the two main protagonists in Wild Talent , was a real person, and a brilliant young adventurer. "Kudos to Kernaghan for unearthing a fiercely free-spirited woman whose life was perhaps even stranger than fantasy fiction."
