It Looks Like Us
Riley has anxiety - ostracised by the kids at school because of panic attacks - so when she starts to feel like something's wrong with their expedition leader, Greta, she writes it off. But when Greta snaps and tries to kill Riley, she can't chalk it up to an overactive imagination anymore. Worse, after watching Greta disintegrate, only to find another student with the same affliction, she realises they haven't been infected, they've been infiltrated - by something that can change its shape. And if the group isn't careful, that something could quickly replace any of them.

--School Library Journal, starred review
"An homage to John Carpenter's The Thing, [...] Ames' second novel is delightfully gruesome and truly scary. A must-read for horror fans."
"The unforgiving setting is automatically fascinating, and the monster is a good, gory, bone-cracking invention [...] fans of horror will find a lot to enjoy."
"Readers looking for a full-on creature feature won't be disappointed [...] [T]he dynamic cast and their complex relationships propel this frightful adventure toward a bloody conclusion."
"Eerie, unsettling, and absolutely captivating, It Looks Like Us hooked me on the first page and never let me go. Ames has crafted a chilling eco horror novel that will keep you reading late into the night, engrossed by its shape-shifting horrors."
--Erica Waters, author of The River Has Teeth
"Ames has truly hit her stride in this bone-chilling story of isolation, resilience, and the monstrous nature of man. Be sure to lock your doors, because this book is as creeping and deadly as the Antarctic cold, and just as unforgiving."
--Courtney Gould, author of The Dead and the Dark
