About the Author

Alex Adams was born in Auckland, New Zealand, and currently lives in Portland, Oregon, with her family. Visit her website at AlexAdamsBooks.com.


"Adams' fantasy is brilliant! It's McCarthy's "The Road" on hope steroids. Adams' narrative is the prose of the world's destruction, beautiful yet horrible. Her amazing characters are full of both hope and hopelessness in the face of death--and worse. This is what apocalyptic fiction will aspire to be from now on."
"Adams has an excellent sense of timing, delivering gasp-inducing moments that punctuate her nightmare with verve. But it's Zoe's clear-eyed sense of self-preservation that will keep readers waiting for Adams' follow-up."
"Written with such skill and confidence that it sits easily in the pantheon of post-apocalyptic thrillers alongside the likes of Justin Cronin and Stephen King. . .The first installment in a bold new trilogy, "White Horse" is the perfect start to a series that promises to both terrify and thrill."
"It draws to a compelling pause, with a pair of revelations in the final pages that should spur readers to a sequel. Adams has fashioned a macabre landscape in which she explores fundamental questions about what it means to be human, with a compelling protagonist and narrator as our guide."
"Alex Adams' debut, "White Horse", is the first in a brilliant trilogy which will no doubt be ranked among the great fantasy novels."
"A cat-and-mouse tale of murder and pursuit . . . Adams' debut novel adds another dimension to dystopian fiction."
"Suspenseful, fast-paced, and boasting solid character development, this is a much better than average post-apocalyptic novel."
"The new "Hunger Games"."
"Kept me up way too late at night, avidly racing to the thrilling end."--Kaye George, Suspense Magazine
"Alex Adams delivers a beautifully written page-turner that brings new life to post-apocalyptic fiction and the hero's journey. I couldn't stop reading, and couldn't stop wondering what I would do in the world of "White Horse". Gorgeously, unrelentingly, dark and gripping."--Eleanor Brown, New York Times bestselling author of The Weird Sisters
