"John Connolly's foray into supernatural horror really suits him. With its bleak setting, neatly sketched characters, and creepy, vengeful spirits, this is a fine horror that ticks all the right boxes."
"In my opinion, Koontz's scariest book. His prose in this story are unbelievably vivid. Rarely have I been so transported, & where I found myself was a place of utter terror. Wonderful survival horror"
"Not at all the scariest of horror books, it makes up for lack of frights with its wonderful narrative, high adventure, and intimacy of character. A real gem of a story. Bleak, touching and intelligent"
"This is difficult to pigeon-hole. Part psychological suspense, part crime thriller, part coming-of-age yarn. Take a front row seat in the mind of a child... and the vicious paedophile hungry for him."
