Reviews

Carolyn McCormick narrates increasingly disturbing events with an unwavering calm that makes the listening experience all the more chilling...McCormick gives a haughty, deep voice to the psychologist, the leader of the group whose intentions may not be what they seem. Her arrogant tone contrasts nicely with the gritty and increasingly anxious tones of the surveyor as the group uncovers deadly secrets better left alone.

-- "AudioFile"

A little Kubrick, a lot Lovecraft, the novel builds with an unbearable tension and a claustrophobic dread that linger long afterward.

-- "Lauren Beukes, Sunday Times (London) bestselling author "

A captivating meander...that veers between the beautiful and the terrifying.

-- "Entertainment Weekly"

[A] deeply imaginative little shocker...full of metaphysical-graffiti imagery and tightly executed reveals that stay with you long afterward.

-- "Wired"

[A] wonderfully creepy blend of horror and science fiction...Speculative fiction at its most transfixing.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Brilliant...Evocative descriptions...masterful psychological insight, and intellectual observations both profound and disturbing.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Weaves together an otherworldly tale of the supernatural and the half-human. Delightfully, this page-turner is the first in a trilogy.

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

A dystopian story with literary overtones.

-- "Library Journal"
