Product Details


Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, July 29, 2013:
“Wasserman (The Book of Blood and Shadow) delivers an exceptional horror novel that will lead to inevitable (and deserved) Stephen King comparisons… The novel works just as well as mainstream horror as YA, and the ending is both effective and brutal.”

Starred Review, Booklist, August 1, 2013:
The Waking Dark is a horror story worthy of Stephen King… It’s a violent, edgy, well-written, and foreboding novel, so realistic that readers can only hope it’s simply fiction.”

Starred Review, School Library Journal, July 2013:
“Great dialogue and intriguing subplots add to the action-packed story, which will have readers frantically flipping pages. Wasserman sustains a truly spooky mood throughout, and the suspense doesn’t let up until the final pages.”

Starred Review, The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, October 2013:
“Masterful pacing and brilliant scene-setting work to make sure readers can’t leave Oleander until the final page.”
