"A prescient exploration of domestic terrorism and the fears that currently grip ordinary people worldwide, Halcyon is a slick, page-turning thriller that establishes Rio Youers as an author with something to say. Ominous and yet somehow full of hope, Halcyon shows that Youers is a Koontz or King for a new generation." --Sarah Pinborough, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes and Cross Her Heart.
"Rio Youers deftly mixes family drama, ESP, politics, and the collective insanity of cults into a heady cultural critique that also functions as a page-turning, white-knuckle thriller. Halcyon is a tornado of a novel." --Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World
"Rich, multilayered and compulsively readable, Halcyon is a ferocious yet thoughtful and very timely take on our need to believe in a better place." --Michael Marshall, New York Times bestselling author of The Straw Men.
"I'm warning you: stay away from Halcyon if you have a pressing deadline, children that must be fed, dogs that need to be walked. Because it will own you completely and gobble up all your time and focus with its spellbinding sentences, vividly realized characters, furious pacing, and skin-crawling chills. Rio Youers is a master." -- Benjamin Percy, author of The Dark Net, Thrill Me, and Red Moon
