“Connolly writes like a poet about terrible horrors. . . . His words sing.”

— Houston Chronicle

Praise for New York Times bestselling author John Connolly and

The Gates

“Connolly mixes science with the supernatural to produce a creepy/comical jaunt for young adults and fans alike.”

— Madison County Herald

“Delightfully fresh and imaginative.”

— Houston Press

“Depressingly brilliant. I loved every word. John has found a voice that compares favorably with Stephen King and Monty Python, which is not an easy trick. The Gates is delightfully horrific and hilarious and will create legions of fans among the living and undead, who will be bloodthirsty for more. Also I learned stuff, which was a bit sneaky.”

—Eoin Colfer, New York Times bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series

The Book of Lost Things

“Stephen King meets the Brothers Grimm. . . . Connolly is in a class by himself.”

— Booklist

“An intense and satisfying book for the dark nights of winter.”

— Philadelphia Inquirer
