Praise

Daphne is a superb serial killer novel and a great coming-of-age story. Josh Malerman delivers one of his best novels yet, and one of the most memorable villains in recent history. This is the literary equivalent of a defibrillator, and the shock will leave you feeling alive and wanting more.”—Gabino Iglesias, author of The Devil Takes You Home

Daphne is somehow both a terrifying serial killer story and a beautiful meditation on the psychic gulf between adolescence and adulthood. It left me sniffing for smoke and jumping at shadows.”—Delilah S. Dawson, New York Times bestselling author of The Violence

“This terrifying little book will get you just like Daphne does—first with curiosity, then fascination, and before you know it, you’re sucked in deep, and it’s too late. You’ll be triple-checking the locks and sleeping with all the lights in the house on bright, too afraid to close your eyes.”—Peng Shepherd, USA Today bestselling author of The Cartographers

“Welcome to Samhattan, Michigan, a place where Kit’s ever-looming anxiety of senior year and the threat of a monstrous ghost stalking her teammates are equally real and terrifying. Daphne is both a new spin on the slasher genre and a deeply rewarding novel about the nature of the horrors inside us.”—Gwenda Bond, New York Times bestselling author of Stranger Things: Suspicious Minds

“A swift and fierce novel about collective forgetting, repression, anxiety, and fear—and above all a seemingly unstoppable villain . . . Sleek and scary, it looms larger and larger with every page.”—Brian Evenson, author of The Glassy, Burning Floor of Hell

“If you don’t start your summer with a copy of this—crinkled spine, worn pages, crammed in the back pocket of your jeans—you’re doing it all wrong. Daphne will scare the bejesus out of you. This is Malerman at his best.”—J. D. Barker, New York Times bestselling author of A Caller’s Game
