Kind Words About RISE THE DARK

New York Times-bestselling authors Lee Child, Joseph Finder, and Stewart O’Nan are already fans of the book. See their comments here!

“A superb thriller literally humming and buzzing with power and tension, given depth and resonance by Koryta’s fascination with pitting lone human emotion against a vast and forbidding landscape.”

—Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Make Me

“Rise the Dark is—excuse the pun—electrifying. Koryta delivers nonstop action in an all-too-plausible scenario, with that hint of the uncanny that’s become his trademark. The ending will have readers pounding his door for more.”

—Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Guilty Minds and Suspicion

“Who needs jihadis when we’ve got our own homegrown terrorists? With a wild premise and fascinating background, Rise the Dark is a fast, gripping, satisfying thriller. For those who don’t know yet, Michael Koryta is building a hell of a shelf.”

—Stewart O’Nan, New York Times bestselling author of The Speed Queen and City of Secrets

It is clear that a lot of thought has gone into this book – the claustrophobic setting, a strong likeable protagonist whom you want to succeed, and a solid mystery that keeps you guessing right up to the end.”

“I wasn’t more than a third of the way into Michael Koryta’s Last Words late one recent evening when I closed its covers and started browsing Netflix for silly sitcoms. I knew that before I put my head on the pillow I needed to shake the searing image of the book’s protagonist waking up drugged, naked and freezing, lost deep underground in the utter darkness of a vast cave — or risk having it show up in my dreams.”
