Cameron Stracher
"A rousing adventure story in the tradition of The Hunger Games."
Close Your Eyes (2011)

The Poison Artist (2016)
Jonathan Moore
"Magnificent, thoroughly unnerving . . . I dare you to look away."
The Last One (2016)
Alexandra Oliva
"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)
Coert Voorhees
"On the Free is a roaring adventure that will make you stand up and cheer."
Upgrade (2022)
Blake Crouch
"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."
