"Hawthorne plumbs the depths of horror and science fiction with this tale, the first in his bestselling series...he takes the subject matter seriously, adding just enough factual information to grant it a verisimilitude that works well to heighten the scares and build the tension, chapter after chapter. Perhaps the best aspect is that the characters are not mere stock; they have interior lives, motives, fears, and backstory that make their actions all the more tense--you care about what happens to them. This is a page-turner worthy of your time. Just don't read it on the beach." - Alex Greenwood, Mysterious Goings On

"Batten down the hatches and brace yourself... Hawthorne delivers suspense at a breakneck pace in his terrifying debut.
" - Ryan Lockwood, Author of Below
