'Lowe is very good on the passion of teenagers for their friends… the places her angry young women reach as they spiral into rage are very dark indeed.' - The Observer
'A spell-binding debut that examines the dark heart of friendship, obsession, and revenge. I was bewitched by Katie Lowe's deliciously chilling storytelling. The Furies is a compulsive and unsettling read, dripping in atmosphere and suspense.' - Lucy Clarke, bestselling author of You Let Me In
'The Furies can be described as Prep meets The Craft, while managing to be a dark, weird creature all of its own. Witches, murder, and teenage girls - this is the book of my dreams. I am obsessed.' - Louise O'Neill, bestselling author of Only Ever Yours
'The Furies is mesmerising, disturbing and completely addictive - it's a brilliant book about the power, vulnerability and rage of teenage girls, and it couldn't feel more timely. Lowe's beautiful prose is thrillingly, chillingly dark, and Violet is the sort of heroine that you want to throw yourself down the rabbit hole with - you know that she's going somewhere terrifying but you have to follow her journey.' - Daisy Buchanan, author of The Sisterhood
