“As well-written as it is chill-inducing. The more terrifying and unnerving aspects of the novel – and there are many – are just as important as the human element. Damned scary.”
-Brian Truitt, USA Today

“Pyper has more than mastered the art of the profluent plot and The Damned guarantees many sleepless nights…will get your heart racing without insulting your intelligence. A brilliant conceit…Along with the thrills and chills come moments when the reader is invited to reflect upon his or her own systems of belief.”
The Globe and Mail

“It’s an uncommon novel that moves a reader, and a rare one that frightens them, but only the most extraordinary accomplish both at the same time. Enter The Damned, a tour de force that sinks sticky claws into the soft dark places in your psyche—and refuses to let go, no matter how you squirm.”
-Marcus Sakey, author of The Blade Itself and the Brilliance Saga

“Pyper is a master architect of dread…Compulsive and nerve-jangling,The Damned is a story about personal hells and the relationships that haunt us.”
-Lauren Beukes, author of The Shining Girls and Broken Monsters
