"Rebecca Schaeffer delivers another dose of morally ambiguous, delightful chaos--this time with a refreshing examination of how we view vampires." -- #1 New York Times bestselling author Xiran Jay Zhao

"So much fun readers will stay up all night to finish it." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"A wonderfully grisly and darkly imaginative tale that will entertain its readers even as it draws them into its web of self-examination." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"One of my favorite books of the year! Phenomenally fun, with a vivid, vicious world that's stuffed with monsters (both human and otherwise) and a heroine you'll root for. I absolutely loved it!" -- Sarah Beth Durst, award-winning author of The Queens of Renthia series

"Schaeffer's worldbuilding is economical and inventive, and snappy dialogue, breezy first-person-present narration, and a quirky, ethnically diverse cast add levity, counterbalancing ruminations on fear." -- Publishers Weekly

"Thrilling, atmospheric and wonderfully original! In a world where people become their worst nightmares, Ness has to contend with explosions, monsters, assassins - and a cute vampire boy! Rebecca Schaeffer's City of Nightmares is a page-turning read full of twists and mysteries. I loved it!"
-- Vanessa Len, author of Only A Monster

"Readers will welcome this is a series opener, as there is still far more to explore in this world that is mostly bleak but with just enough hope to make the bitter sweet." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
