"A first-class apocalyptic thriller of futuristic science, geophysics, and religion. It's clever, intelligent, and--most terrifying of all--plausible"
--Kate Mosse, author of "Labryinth" and "Sepulchre
"Liz Jensen writes with crackling insight into the workings of the mind caught up in cataclysms within and without. In "The Rapture" she has created worlds torn apart and takes us close--too close--to faith caught in the storm. A devastating tale."
--Keith Donahue, author of " Angels of Destruction" and "The Stolen Child"
"In this modern world of religious warfare and global warming, "The Rapture" is as topical as it is thrilling. Beautifully written, haunting, and thoroughly entertaining. The gripping tension of "Lost" mixed with the poetic poignancy of "The Bell Jar." I simply could not stop turning pages."
--Matthew Quick, author of the "Silver Linings Playbook"
"Liz Jensen's exciting thriller often feels as frightening and prophetic as the sixteen-year-old girl at its center. "The Rapture" is a terrific novel, expertly written, thought-provoking, and deeply unsettling."
--Kevin Guilfoile, author of "Cast of Shadows"
