"A masterful coming-of-age novel...Rice's characters are complex and real, his dialogue pitch-perfect, and his writing intelligent and strong. He builds suspense beautifully...amid enduring philosophical questions about what it means to be human."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Creepy, chilling, and almost impossible to put down...a page-turner."--Booklist
"Deep within the swamps outside New Orleans, Niquette Delongpre and her family unearth a well that brings secrets to the surface - secrets that should have stayed buried in the soils of the Mississippi river. The author - son of Anne Rice - has written a creepy, intriguing and dangerously addictive supernatural novel."--The Sun
"This is Rice's best book to date, with evocative language, recurring themes and rich storytelling that will raise the hairs on the back of the neck. It rivals the best of Stephen King at times and sets a standard for psychological horror."--Louisville Courier-Journal
Rice draws upon his New Orleans roots to create at Louisiana that may seem familiar but is a bit more terrifying, bringing about a perfect blend of spooky and memorable...the depth of character, chilling atmosphere and moral dilemma are all marks of a superb story."--Shelf Awareness
"Tense, gripping, gory at times, "The Heavens Rise" is every bit the novel one would expect from, well, someone like his mom."--Huffington Post Books
"Christopher Rice never disappoints with his vivid people and places and masterful prose. He will hold you captive under his spell as his images and emotions become your own."--Patricia Cornwell, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Bone Bed
"The Heavens Rise is an entertaining and chilling story published just in time for Halloween."--BookReporter
"With rich, multi-layered characters merging into the lush backdrop of pre- and post-Katrina, south Louisiana, Rice had my attention from the start...every twist and unexpected revelation fell into place smoothly and kept me engaged...looking forward to the next amazing story."--Suspense Magazine
"THE HEAVENS RISE is an eerie tale of the supernatural set against the backdrop of the swamps of New Orleans. Christopher Rice does a marvelous job at incorporating the imagery of New Orleans into the tale... [He] expertly weaves together the past and the present as the tale alternates back and forth between the timeframes, giving us the full history of the four main characters and how they ended up as they are today... it is the strength of the character building and the richness of the imagery that makes THE HEAVENS RISE so chilling...I can't recommend THE HEAVENS RISE enough!"--Fresh Fiction
"Christopher Rice is a magician. This brilliant, subtly destabilizing novel inhales wickedness and corruption and exhales delight and enchantment. Rice executes his turns, reversals, and surprises with the pace and timing of a master. The Heavens Rise would not let me stop reading it--that's how compelling it is."

--Peter Straub, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Mrs. God
"Christopher Rice has written an amazing horror novel with more twists and turns than a mountain road. You'll think you know your destination . . . but you'll be wrong."

--Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dead Ever After
"Christopher Rice has crafted a rich and haunting world in The Heavens Rise. This story of a tormented family and the events that have led to their destruction and onward into the future is tense, tight, disturbing and made very real by a very talented author who obviously knows his way around the Big Easy. An excellent read!"

--Robert McCammon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of I Travel By Night
