Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

It's a novel with as much brains as heart, and both are filling and delicious. The A. V. Club on Feed
I can't wait for the next book. N.K. Jemisin on Feed
OK, all of you readers who want something weighty and yet light, campy and yet smart, horror with heart, a summer beach read that will stay in your head and whisper to you "what if," Deadline is just what you are looking for. RT Book Reviews on Deadline
Deft cultural touches, intriguing science, and amped-up action will delight Grant's numerous fans. Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Deadline
Wry and entertaining."—NPR Books on Blackout
Intelligent and exciting...raises the bar for the genre. Telegraph on Deadline
Intelligent and intense, a thinking-person's post-apocalyptic zombie thriller set in a fully-realized future that is both fascinating and horrifying to behold. John Joseph Adams on Feed
Gripping, thrilling, and brutal... Shunning misogynistic horror tropes in favor of genuine drama and pure creepiness, McGuire has crafted a masterpiece of suspense with engaging, appealing characters who conduct a soul-shredding examination of what's true and what's reported. Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on Feed
Astonishing ... a fascinating exploration of the future. New York Times
While there's plenty of zombie mayhem, political snark, and pointedly funny observations here, the heart of this book is about human relationships, which are still the most important thing in the world...even in a world where you might have to shoot the person you love most in the head, just to stop them from biting off your face. Locus on Feed
"Feed is a proper thriller with zombies. Grant doesn't get carried away with describing her world or the virus. She's clearly thought both out brilliantly, but she doesn't let it get in the way of a taut, well-written story. SFX on Feed
The story starts with a bang as corruption, mystery, danger and excitement abound. RT Book Reviews (4.5 stars) on Feed
“This second entry in Grant's trilogy is a keen and intelligent novel that takes a hard look at medical ethics, government corruption, and human responsibility…Sure to appeal to fans of smart, subversive zombie lit in the vein of Max Brooks's World War Z.”               Library Journal
“Deft cultural touches, intriguing science, and amped-up action.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
