Description

Liv Fleming is done with childhood fantasies. Done pretending she believes her missing father's absurd theories about alien abduction. Done going through the motions of checking the traps he set just for her friend Doug's sake. But on the very day she chooses to destroy the traps, she discovers in one of them a creature so inhuman it can only be one thing. In that moment, she's faced with a painful realisation: Her dad was telling the truth. And no one believed him.

Now she and Doug have a choice to make. They can turn the alien over to the authorities . . . or they can take matters into their own hands.

On the heels of the worldwide success of The Shape of Water, Daniel Kraus returns with a horrifying and heartbreaking thriller about the lengths people go to find justice.

Review quote

"Kraus gets under your skin with brutal, elegant efficiency. Necessarily horrifying, devastatingly timely." - Kiersten White, New York Times-bestselling author of The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein and Slayer

"Bent Heavens is the darkest, angriest alien horror story that I've ever encountered. Hell. Yes." - Stephanie Perkins, New York Times-bestselling author of There's Someone Inside Your House

"With a gripping, twisty story line and assured writing, this book will be a powerful and confrontational read for mature teens." - Booklist, Starred Review

"Beautiful prose does little to mask the anger of this powerful narrative. Readers will have a hard time putting this down." - School Library Journal, Starred Review

"Kraus's blend of sci-fi and heart-stopping horror...offers a viscerally terrifying examination of grief, othering, and the price of vengeance." - Publisher's Weekly
