Justin Cronin recommends
Strangers at the Feast (2010)
"Gorgeously written and uncompromising in its vision, Strangers at the Feast is more than a great novel. It's an important one."
The Water Wars (2011)
"A rousing adventure story in the tradition of The Hunger Games."
Close Your Eyes (2011)
Amanda Eyre Ward
"Electrifying, a literary whodunit of the first order! You won't be able to look away. People will be talking about this book."
The Starboard Sea (2012)
"The Starboard Sea is a touching, beautiful, and deeply wise novel, a hymn to the bittersweet glories of youth. You will be enthralled."
(Wool Trilogy, book 2)
"An epic feat of imagination. You will live in this world."
The Curiosity (2013)
Stephen P Kiernan
"A true page-turner... a book that will stop your heart and start it again."
The Poison Artist (2016)
"Magnificent, thoroughly unnerving . . . I dare you to look away."
The Last One (2016)
"The Last One seamlessly melds two of our contemporary obsessions - the threat of global catastrophe and the staged drama of reality TV - into a fiercely imagined tale of the human psyche under stress. This is an uncompromising, thought-provoking debut."
On the Free (2017)
"On the Free is a roaring adventure that will make you stand up and cheer."
"The incomparable Blake Crouch has, once again, completely blown my mind. Upgrade is more than a brain-bending thriller; it's a siren in the night, warning us all of the dangers of playing God with the human species."
