• A short, sharp explosion of a gothic thriller whose tension ratchets up and up to an ending of extraordinary lyricism and virtuosity.

    Observer *Fiction to Look Out for in 2020*
  • A haunting, emotionally acute novel with a terrific twist.

    Claire Allfree, Daily Mail *Christmas Fiction*
  • [A] gothic masterpiece... You can't stop reading... This taut, lyrical firecracker of a book crescendos into an emotional ambush of a climax, which...confirms Johnson as a profoundly inventive and masterful storyteller.

    Gwendolyn Smith, i
  • A tour-de-force... Johnson's prose seduces us with the promise of comfort and then yanks that comfort away.

    Erica Wagner, Guardian *Book of the Day*
  • Exhilarating... A masterful follow up to her debut, Johnson's novel is quietly terrifying and certainly an apt read for 2020.

    Evening Standard
  • Daisy Johnson is the demon offspring of Shirley Jackson and Stephen King... Readers will find many pieces of treasure buried here... Terrifically well-crafted, psychologically complex and chillingly twisted.

    Alex Preston, Observer
  • A second novel that should see [Johnson] consolidate her grip on power... A book less likely to chew you up than screw you up.

    The Times
  • A short, sharp shock of a book... Johnson's lyrical prose and knack for conjuring unsettling moments makes for an impressive read. Sisters will, I suspect, be a big hit.

  • The creeping, physical menace that made Johnson's debut so memorable commands this book, too... It makes an immediate impression -- there's a weight to it which doesn't shift when you put it down.

    Francesca Carington, Sunday Telegraph, *Novel of the Week*
  • A dark, slippery, psychological, gothic horror tale...with a rhythmic, visceral energy.
