"A harrowing -- yet often hilarious -- journey into chaos, The Grimmer is a gleefully bizarre nightmare unlike anything else in YA. In Vish, I found a fellow metalhead, a unique voice in horror, and a deeply felt story about realizing when you aren't in control of your life anymore -- and what one kid does to regain his agency. An unforgettable experience." -- Mark Oshiro, #1 NYT bestselling author of Into the Light and Each of Us a Desert
"This briskly paced horror novel offers cinematic imagery and suspenseful intrigue. The narrative grounds the rules of magic in the laws of science, and details about identity and marginalization are thoughtfully incorporated while providing deeper insight into Vish's worldview. A satisfying supernatural tale centering a reluctant hero who discovers the universe's time-bending secrets." -- Kirkus Reviews
"The Grimmer explores complex family and community dynamics in a spooky story with well-rounded characters, a unique magic system, and a villain most mysterious and terrifying." -- Ryan Douglass, New York Times bestselling author of The Taking of Jake Livingston
"Naben Ruthnum pivots effortlessly to YA with The Grimmer, a compelling and suspenseful horror novel set in the '90s. The nostalgic backdrop works beautifully for the story, which manages to stay fresh and unique. Tense, creepy, and full of humour and heart, The Grimmer is a must-read for YA horror fans." -- Tom Ryan, International Thriller Award- and Lambda Award-winning author of Keep This to Yourself
