Review quote

Compulsive reading Marie-Claire Sarah Lotz has just written the perfect horror story. This will be undoubtedly one of the best horror stories published in 2014. The Book Plank It's reminiscent of Stephen King's CARRIE and THE THREE comes preloaded with praise from the master of horror himself. It deserves it: this high-concept thriller is a blast. The Guardian Tiptoeing the tightrope between fantasy and horror Daily Mail One of the finest, freakiest horror novels I've read. Chuck Wendig The author's use of the oral-history format, with its shifting voices and points of view, is a stroke of genius: the reader is in a state of near-constant confusion at the beginning, which is slowly replaced by unease and then dread as the various commentators start to see the bigger picture. A very creepy, very effective novel. -- David Pitt Booklistshow more
