Rise the Dark releases in less than a week, and the reviews already are starting to come in. Here are a few of the early thoughts about the book:

The Washington Post:

This book arrived with high praise from several stars of the genre — “A master,” says Stephen King; “Outstanding,” adds Lee Child — and they’re right. “Rise the Dark” is both first-rate entertainment and an unusually interesting thriller in terms of its characters, its plot and the ideas it explores, which include the electrical grid, Tesla’s history, spiritualism and the nation’s possible vulnerability to a right-wing takeover.

The Chicago Tribune:

Among his many gifts, Michael Koryta is a virtuoso in his use of outdoor settings…his thrillers present the great outdoors in their most frightening aspects. The book’s atmospheric power and strong cast of supporting characters make “Rise the Dark” compelling from the get go.

Library Journal — starred review:

A compelling narrative, relatable characters, and action scenes that play out like a blockbuster film, Koryta has written his best book to date. Highly recommended for fans of the author and readers of Dan Brown and Dennis Lehane.

Publishers Weekly:

“Pulse-pounding…the dramatic conclusion does justice to the suspenseful setup.”
