Praise

Starred review, The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, May 2011:
“A masterly touch at thriller pacing, Kraus gives the current crop of pretentiously serious supernatural YA novels a wild run for their money.”

Starred review, Booklist:
“A tour-de-force combination of reader and writer.”

School Library Journal:
“A gripping and emotional tale.”

Kirkus Reviews:
“A cerebral romp through a fascinating, revolting underworld.”

VOYA:
“Twists and turns will leave readers gasping.”

“As suspenseful and masterfully told as it is gruesome and terrifying. You’d be hard-pressed to find a coming-of-age story as satisfying as this.”–Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother and coeditor of Boing Boing

“Grueling, demented, and so crammed with noxious awesomeness that I had to read it twice.”–Scott Westerfeld, author of the Uglies series

“This is an unforgettable book. An unforgettable character . . . and an adventure that leads to unforgettable HORROR. I loved it!”–R. L. Stine

“A multi-layered, complex novel that pulls no punches. Terrific!”–Rick Yancey, author of The Monstrumologist

“Uncompromising, dark, and true.”–Guillermo Del Toro, coauthor of the Strain Trilogy and director of Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth, and Chuck Hogan, coauthor of the Strain Trilogy

“A cerebral romp through a fascinating, revolting underworld.”–Kirkus Reviews
“One of the darkest, wildest, most unsettling adolescent novels I’ve ever come across. . . . Kraus is absolutely original.”–The Millions

“A new horror classic.”–Fangoria
