A nightmarish, yet sickeningly plausible world... An exceptional novel that's crying out for a movie adap * SFX *
Novak puts an innovative spin on the idea that inside every parent lurks a monster, and delivers pulse-racing set pieces as a pervasive sense of dread blossoms into something poisonous....a stylish parable of greed * Financial Times *
Delightfully entertaining...redolent of Roald Dahl at his creepy best * Washington Post *
Above and beyond its fatality count BREED has originality on its side; the ending is a true shocker. * New York Times *
Chase Novak unleashes truly scary literary horror villains in BREED: Mom and Dad...a thrill to read * USA Today *
A slice of shivering dread * New York Daily News *
