Product Details


“Utterly compelling . . . Malerman balances the novel’s various elements—family drama, road novel, supernatural thriller—with skill and genuine compassion for his characters and their blighted lives.” The Washington Post
“[An] epic journey”Entertainment Weekly
“Scarily prescient . . . Malorie amplifies the fears of Bird Box tenfold.”SyFy Wire
“Malerman’s narrative matches the twists and tension of the first novel, and readers are likely to leave this book sufficiently shaken. The popularity of Bird Box and the ubiquity of the 2018 Netflix adaptation all but guarantee high demand for this outstanding second foray into monsters and madness.”Booklist (Starred Review)
“Another taut, breathless supernatural thriller . . . [Josh] Malerman masterfully evokes apocalyptic horrors via understatement and suggestion while facilitating suspension of disbelief through nuanced characterization and thoughtful worldbuilding. This is a bang-up sequel.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Essential worldbuilding is seamlessly interwoven in a narrative paired with enlightening flashbacks into Malorie’s childhood, making this a solid stand-alone. Malerman will no doubt add to his legions of fans with this title ripe for readers of any genre seeking an intensely thrilling ride.”Library Journal

“You know how you sometimes begin a series on Netflix and you tell yourself ‘I’m just going to watch one episode’ but ten hours later you’ve binged the entire series because the story is so relentlessly compelling? This is the book version of that experience. Not only did I read this book in one sitting, it still haunts me, swirling in my imagination even as I write this.”—Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

“I can’t remember the last time I had to set a book down because it was too intense for me to continue. And that’s only the halfway point. Once Malerman hits the gas you better hang on tight, because he doesn’t let up until the stunning finish. Malorie is a relentless thriller that will fry your nerves and twist your heart. It’s absolutely brilliant.”—Philip Fracassi, author of Behold the Void
