Review quote

A clever book written with an intelligence which defies simple 'horror' for its own sake and makes for a satisfying page-turner. * School Librarian * The pace is relentless, and the fear and suspense are cleverly built. * School Librarian * Chilling and exciting... one of the best ghost stories I've ever read. * Scottish Daily Record * A thriller in the best sense of the word. * Cork Evening Echo * A very effective style - vivid, terse, atmospheric - and makes for a real page-turner of a story. * Bookbag * McNamee deftly conveys his characters' dread and their determination to escape. I would swear that the air around me got cooler and the breeze stronger as I read deeper into the book. [Bonechiller] * theyayayas.wordpress * A gripping read, enhanced by a precise sense of place. An exciting, engaging and occasionally frightening book for older teenagers. * * * * [Bonechiller] * Books for Keeps * Exciting, damn scary and all too real. A terrific tale with great young characters battling a fantastic cunning monster. Great stuff. [Bonechiller] * Hack writers * A genuinely scary horror story... well-developed characters, convincing relationships... a fine thriller that offers more than simple serial gore and pointless frights.[Bonechiller] * Quill & Quire * I found myself missing things in real life just so I could get through this book. I loved it! [Bonechiller] * * McNamee's follow-up to Acceleration is another page-turning thriller, this time with an eerie supernatural edge that will appeal to fans of psychological horror.[Bonechiller] * Booklist * A while since I've read something as creepy as this. An eerie, scary thriller... different, fast paced, exciting and really well-written. Highly recommended. [Bonechiller] * Chicklish * McNamee delivers another taut, spine-tingling page turner. [Beyond] * Kirkus * Loads of action, atmosphere and danger. With 'Beyond' McNamee has proved yet again that he's at the top of the heap when it comes to page-turning thrillers. [Beyond] * Kirkus *
