Wry and entertaining."—NPR Books on Blackout
Intelligent and exciting...raises the bar for the genre. Telegraph on Deadline
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

“The zombie novel Robert A. Heinlein might have written.” Sci-Fi Magazine
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
Astonishing ... a fascinating exploration of the future. New York Times
"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
