"Supernatural horror does not get much better than The Reddening. If you're a fan of slow build-ups, heavy atmosphere, superb and intricate plotting, bloodletting and a novel which has a unique sense of time and place then you are going to love this quality story. 5/5." Gingernuts of Horror."The Reddening is an intense, chokehold of a novel. It grips from the start and holds you down as it makes you consume the horrors within." This is Horror."I enjoyed this book so much and cannot recommend it enough to all horror-loving readers. Pick this one up for the gore, high tension, and superb writing. 5 Stars" Night Worms."The Reddening is initially a slow burn tale that ramps up to be a pacey multi-faceted horror that is so well written Adam Nevill is seriously starting to challenge Clive Barker as my favourite author I can offer no higher praise" Kendall Reviews."Powerfully visceral in all senses of the word, but it's also fiercely intelligent - this is powerful, razor-sharp writing." Hypnogoria."The Reddening is another horrific gem to be added to the author's back catalogue. The novel succeeds in being distressing yet captivating, unsettling but also often heartfelt. It's quite the emotional rollercoaster, exactly how every good horror novel should be." The Eloquent Page."Be warned: The Reddening is not a book to read alone. The sense of impending doom is there from the get-go. But it is genuinely hard to put down. Just keep the lights on." Pop Mythology."The Reddening served as my introduction to the work of Adam Nevill. That being said, I hadn't even finished the book before buying 3 more of his novels, it's that good." Steelrain Reviews."Easily a strong 5/5 on this one." Horrorbound."One of the most disturbing things I've read in quite some time." Anthony Watson."The Reddening" is Nevill's Devon Wickerman, and under his spell you might well, like me, shrivel into Edward Woodward hollering a heartfelt, yet impotent "Jesus. Jesus Christ!" Patti's Blogspot."If you like horror with complex storylines, wonderful characters, a rough coastal setting, archeological digs, cannibalism and cults, then you've found the right book. My rating is 5/5 stars!" She Reads With Cats."This horror is cosmic in the Lovecraftian tradition." Carmilla Voiez.
