Staff Reviews

Technically, it’s a zombie horror story, complete with peril and gore. But it’s a story that carries such unexpected substance and emotional weight that it broke my stupid heart on numerous occasions. The characters are complex, fleshed out and uniquely motivated. There's tense action, and wholly original revelations all throughout the book. M.R. Carey took a genre that's overcrowded with repetitive tropes or Walking-Dead-wannabes, and created something that's equal parts chilling and heart-breaking.

The USA Today bestseller
Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her "our little genius."
Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh.
The Girl With All the Gifts is a groundbreaking thriller, emotionally charged and gripping from beginning to end. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Calibri; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none}
