Mira Grant masterfully ratchets the tension up and down, holding readers firmly in her grip as the mysterious and the monstrous collide.

This book kept me reading long into the night, giggling at its gleeful push-pull embrace of B-movie horror tropes even as I gripped the pages tight * BARNES AND NOBLE BLOG *
What this author does so well is create a group of characters and makes you care about them - their hopes and dreams . . . then she throws them against a wall over and over again and makes them bleed . . . Cleverly drawn monsters that will visit you in your dreams. Descriptively speaking this is brilliant, brilliant stuff . . . Highly recommended * LIZ LOVES BOOKS *
I was entertained and enraptured from the first page to the last. Also, I will now NEVER go swimming or sailing anywhere near the Mariana Trench * BOOK RIOT *
Engrossing and adrenaline-fueled...with blood-soaked scares that balance thought-provoking philosophical dilemmas * SHELF AWARENESS *
