Tim Pratt is one of the best fantasy/sci-fi writers of the 21st century.
His story had me up all night wondering if the hero would ever find out the truth about his dead ex-girlfriend. The mystery surrounding just what the Briarpatch is was so compelling it had me double-checking every dark shadow you see from the corner of your eye in the small hours of the morning.
If you like this story then I recommend that you read Tim Pratt's The Nex. Although not connected in any way, The Nex could easily be what you would find if you could reach the centre of the Briarpatch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent dark fantasy 20 Oct. 2012
By rantboi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of the author's Marla Mason series, so I decided to give his other fiction a shot. I'm very glad I did. Briarpatch is definitely my kind of novel: dark, fascinating, and populated with interesting characters. While it is dark and sometimes depressing, it definitely had its lighter moments. There's a scene between Darrin's girlfriend and best friend waiting for him to come home that had me laughing out loud. That rarely happens when I'm reading fiction.

Overall, Briarpatch was a very entertaining novel. My favorite character in the whole book was Echo. She was crazy fun and unpredictable. Loved her!

Highly recommended to readers of dark fantasy dealing with the possibilities of parallel worlds.

This is my favorite Pratt book to date. I read it in two days on Kindle, it was awesome. A good masterpiece, complex characters that were developed well, and great imagery. Keep 'em coming, Tim!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Sci Fi novel set in the bay area! 14 May 2014
By amazon customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I love this book!! You might have gathered that from the 5 stars at the top. The characters are complex and all have their own motivations, ethics and principles. That's part of what makes this so interesting, as well as the book truly feeling grounded in the various parts of the bay area, especially Lake Meritt which I never saw another book even mention! Of course it still feels grounded even when it ventures into entire other dimensions (the briarpatch) because the characters stay real. Great book

4.0 out of 5 stars Urban Fantasy as you've not seen it before 22 Dec. 2011
By The Mad Hatter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Pratt gets very dark on us and I half wonder if he was going through a depression during the writing. The story was beautifully told explores what is typically known as the "Otherworld," but this isn't just some dimension with frolicking fairies filled with golden apples. No, Pratt's Otherworld is a mysterious, dark, and ever changing place filled with lost beings and some scary-ass monsters. Emotionally fueled, Briarpatch explores what it means to live and love. There were definitely some pacing issues, but the twisted characters were all so intriguing I couldn't turn away. This is Urban Fantasy as you've not seen it before. The closets comparison would be Charles de Lint.

1.0 out of 5 stars Throw Briarpatch in the briarpatch! 27 Dec. 2012
By MIke GArdner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I don't normally write reviews, so this will be brief. I found this book extremely boring and none of the characters were interesting. I read books to have a story "told" to me. Didn't happen. Waste of my time.
