Praise and Reviews: "A brooding, atmospheric novel." - Kamvision
"One of those rare books that is just about as perfect as a novel can get..." - Horrorworld
"You will be seeing a lot more of Gary McMahon over the next few years... The scenes in the otherworld are horrifically bleak and will stay with you for a long time... genre fans should rejoice that Gary McMahon has not sold out or dumbed down. His writing remains powerful, bleak, shocking... oh and brilliant. Rating 4/5" - The Black Abyss
"Gary McMahon's vision is as bleak as a Yorkshire moor, but it glows with a wintry light that illuminates the dark we live in. His prose and his sense of place are precise and evocative, and his characters are as real as you and me. He's one of the darkest which is to say brightest new stars in the firmament of horror fiction." - Ramsey Campbell
