In the old world there were many rules.
In the new world there is only one that matters: don't open your eyes.
In the seventeen years since the 'creatures' appeared, many people have broken that rule. Many have looked. Many have lost their minds, their lives, their loved ones.
In that time, Malorie has raised her two children - Olympia and Tom - on the run or in hiding. Now nearly teenagers, survival is no longer enough. They want freedom.
When a census-taker stops by their refuge, he is not welcome. But he leaves a list of names - of survivors building a future beyond the darkness - and on that list are two names Malorie knows.
Two names for whom she'll break every rule, and take her children across the wilderness, in the hope of becoming a family again...

[An] epic journey Entertainment Weekly
Scarily prescient . . . Malorie amplifies the fears of Bird Box tenfold. SyFy Wire
Malerman s narrative matches the twists and tension of the first novel, and readers are likely to leave this book sufficiently shaken. The popularity of Bird Box and the ubiquity of the 2018 Netflix adaptation all but guarantee high demand for this outstanding second foray into monsters and madness. Booklist (Starred Review)
Another taut, breathless supernatural thriller . . . [Josh] Malerman masterfully evokes apocalyptic horrors via understatement and suggestion while facilitating suspension of disbelief through nuanced characterization and thoughtful worldbuilding. This is a bang-up sequel. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Essential worldbuilding is seamlessly interwoven in a narrative paired with enlightening flashbacks into Malorie s childhood, making this a solid stand-alone. Malerman will no doubt add to his legions of fans with this title ripe for readers of any genre seeking an intensely thrilling ride. Library Journal
You know how you sometimes begin a series on Netflix and you tell yourself I m just going to watch one episode but ten hours later you ve binged the entire series because the story is so relentlessly compelling? This is the book version of that experience. Not only did I read this book in one sitting, it still haunts me, swirling in my imagination even as I write this. Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
I can t remember the last time I had to set a book down because it was too intense for me to continue. And that s only the halfway point. Once Malerman hits the gas you better hang on tight, because he doesn t let up until the stunning finish. Malorie is a relentless thriller that will fry your nerves and twist your heart. It s absolutely brilliant. Philip Fracassi, author of Behold the Void
