T. Frohock

T. Frohock has turned a love of history and dark fantasy into tales of deliciously creepy fiction. A real-life cyborg, T. has a cochlear implant, meaning she can turn you on or off with the flick of a switch. Make of that what you will. She currently lives in North Carolina, where she has long been accused of telling stories, which is a southern colloquialism for lying.

Reviews

Standalone

Miserere: An Autumn Tale
"With richly developed, complex characters and a talent for portraying the horrific nature of evil, the author relates a compelling tale of faith rediscovered, trust regained, and hope reawakened."

Library Journal, Starred Review

"It’s a story of faith, family obligation, love, forgiveness, and a healthy dose of sacrifice [...] with a tight plot [and] a strangely familiar world [...] One of the finest debuts of 2011, [MISERERE] remains a novel that I remember details from nearly three years later."

Tor.com

"Miserere is about redemption, and the triumph of our best impulses over our worst. It's also about swords, monsters, chases, ghosts, magic, court intrigues and battles to the death. It's also (and this is the important part) really, really good."

Alex Bledsoe, author of DARK JENNY

Los Nefilim Series

Where Oblivion Lives (#1)
“Frohock has intricately woven a unique reinterpretation of history. Eloquent prose accompanies a lyrical theme amid prewar tensions, enriching this imaginative historical fantasy.”

Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“WHERE OBLIVION LIVES is a dark and beautiful historical fantasy with a strong setting and stronger characters, one that has settled under my skin and wound its way into my bones in a way that I won’t soon forget.”

Realms

“WHERE OBLIVION LIVES is as full of pathos as it is thrills. Historical context, social commentary, fantastical music-magic, quick pacing, and a deeply personal narrative form a chorus that sing a story you’ll long to hear again.”

Booknest

“The story builds momentum like a piece of music as the various threads converge on a Gotterdammerung crescendo.”

The Fantasy Hive

“I heartily recommend this to anyone who likes angel/demon stories, music magic, fantasy mixing with pre-WW2 history, and male protagonists who embrace vulnerability.”

Pages Below The Vaulted Sky

“Dancing on the line between horror and fantasy, the adventures and situations that Diago faced kept me flipping pages long after my bedtime.”

Queer Sci Fi

“Anyone interested in historical-grounded dark fantasy should give the Los Nefilim verse of T Frohock a try. There are wondrous things within to be found.”

Nerds of a Feather

"[WHERE OBLIVION LIVES is] the kind of story that casts a spell on readers, immersing them in words as vivid and resonant as the music the nefilim imbue themselves with as they weave their magic."

Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog

“Where Oblivion Lives is a character driven story and Frohock sings [the characters] to life so well.”

Wild Heart Reads

“I didn’t just want everything that has to do with this novel, I needed it to soothe a part of my soul.”

Keikii Eats Books

“An outstanding read.”

Starlit Book

“Beautifully written. You can rely on Frohock for clear writing and, when the situation demands it, beautiful prose […] The story itself is a slow burn leading to an exciting crescendo with some genuinely creepy vibes.”

Mark Lawrence, author of Red Sister

“Brooding, intense, and introspective, WHERE OBLIVION LIVES evokes an eerily plausible 1932 Spain and France full of supernatural forces skirmishing in preparation for a bigger war, right in parallel with humanity. This is dark historical fantasy that sings.”

Beth Cato, author of Breath of Earth

“Frohock is a unique talent, and she has written a beautiful book. Parts of it will break your heart; the rest will make it whole again. I can’t wait to read the next installment.”

Judith Tarr, author of Lord of the Two Lands and Forgotten Suns

“Gorgeously lyrical, T. Frohock weaves a lush tapestry. At times beautiful and brutal, I am in awe of this unbelievably talented story-teller. Highly recommended!”

Michael R. Fletcher, author of Beyond Redemption

Carved from Stone and Dream (#2)
“Frohock seamlessly blends fantasy and WWII history into a heart-wrenching story of war in the action-packed second Los Nefilim novel.”

Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone, but readers will enjoy the depth of the characters more if they read Where Oblivion Lives first. Recommended for fans of dark fantasy, supernatural beings interacting with humanity, and spy stories.”

Library Journal

“Frohock charts her own path between the genres, drawing on many, subscribing to none — an innovator of style more than a follower of fashion. There are glimpses of urban fantasy, of horror, of historical fantasy, as well as a big enough dose of tense action for a Hollywood blockbuster, but ultimately CARVED FROM STONE AND DREAM is a unique and rewarding pleasure that defies categorisation.”

The Fantasy Hive

[S]olid, thoughtful and beautifully stark writing that doesn’t waste a word or pull a punch.”

Starlit Book

“What I will forever love about these books are the strength of the characters, the importance placed on their bonds with each other and the strength they draw from each others love […] The writing as per usual is beautiful. It pulls you right in and brings the story to life with a colourful intensity. The characters and the setting are so wonderfully drawn. Frohock has created something truly brilliant and it’s always such a joy to inhabit this world (even when it hurts).”

Wild Heart Read

“Excellently written (Frohock’s best work to date), potent, powerful, and memorable.”
