Reviews

"If you loved Justin Cronin's The Passage, this summer's vampire hit, you'll get a charge out of The Reapers Are the Angels. It's a literary/horror mashup that is unsettlingly good." --USA Today

"The Reapers Are the Angels is a knockout, a fresh take on the zombie novel, with a heroine you can't help but root for as she braves the land of the living dead and the dead living, pursued by a foe far more dangerous than flesh-eaters and with the beacon of redemption flickering ahead. Alden Bell will snatch your attention and keep it until long after you close this book." --Tom Franklin, author of Hell at the Breach

"Alden Bell provides an astonishing twist on the southern gothic: like Flannery O'Connor with zombies." --Michael Gruber, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Air and Shadows

"Alden Bell has managed something improbable and striking: a disconcertingly beautiful tale of zombie apocalypse. The Reapers Are the Angels is soaked in all the blood that any horror fan could desire, the effluvia rendered in a high Southern Gothic style as redolent of rotting magnolia as anything written by William Faulkner or Cormac McCarthy." --Charlie Huston, author of Sleepless

"... This is a must-read for those who like their literature both brain-specked and philosophical." --journalstar.com
