The ocean is home to many myths,
But some are deadly...
Seven years ago the Atargatis set off on a voyage to the Mariana Trench to film a mockumentary bringing to life ancient sea creatures of legend. It was lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a tragedy.
Now a new crew has been assembled. But this time they're not out to entertain. Some seek to validate their life's work. Some seek the greatest hunt of all. Some seek the truth. But for the ambitious young scientist Victoria Stewart this is a voyage to uncover the fate of the sister she lost.

Editorial Reviews

I can't wait for the next book. N.K. Jemisin on Feed
Intelligent and intense, a thinking-person's post-apocalyptic zombie thriller set in a fully-realized future that is both fascinating and horrifying to behold. John Joseph Adams on Feed
Gripping, thrilling, and brutal... Shunning misogynistic horror tropes in favor of genuine drama and pure creepiness, McGuire has crafted a masterpiece of suspense with engaging, appealing characters who conduct a soul-shredding examination of what's true and what's reported. Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on Feed
The story starts with a bang as corruption, mystery, danger and excitement abound. RT Book Reviews (4.5 stars) on Feed
It's a novel with as much brains as heart, and both are filling and delicious. The A. V. Club on Feed
OK, all of you readers who want something weighty and yet light, campy and yet smart, horror with heart, a summer beach read that will stay in your head and whisper to you "what if," Deadline is just what you are looking for. RT Book Reviews on Deadline
Wry and entertaining."—NPR Books on Blackout
Intelligent and exciting...raises the bar for the genre. Telegraph on Deadline
Deft cultural touches, intriguing science, and amped-up action will delight Grant's numerous fans. Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on Deadline
"Feed is a proper thriller with zombies. Grant doesn't get carried away with describing her world or the virus. She's clearly thought both out brilliantly, but she doesn't let it get in the way of a taut, well written story. SFX on Feed
While there's plenty of zombie mayhem, political snark, and pointedly funny observations here, the heart of this book is about human relationships, which are still the most important thing in the world...even in a world where you might have to shoot the person you love most in the head, just to stop them from biting off your face. Locus on Feed
Grant's skillfully crafted story combines science, horror, and mystery into a gripping novel of terror on the sea. Library Journal (starred review)
Will unnerve and enthrall even seasoned horror fans. . . Mira Grant masterfully ratchets the tension up and down, holding readers firmly in her grip. BookPage
Absolutely delivers on beastly terror.... Best-selling author Mira Grant is one of today's best horror authors, and Into the Drowning Deep takes its place among her best work. Vulture
Grant's heady brew of visceral horror, fascinating science, and, of course, the hubris of mankind in the face of the awesome unknown is irresistible. A claustrophobic, deep-sea terror tale that will leave readers glad to be safely on dry land. Kirkus
Utterly terrifying. RT Book Reviews
Entertained and enraptured from the first page to the last. Bookriot
Astonishing ... a fascinating exploration of the future. New York Times on Newsflesh series
A U.S. presidential campaign set in a zombie-infested future bears an eerie resemblance to the way we live now. Simply jump in and enjoy ... a whip-smart thriller overflowing with sharp ideas and social commentary. Kirkus (starred review) on Feedback
Engrossing and adrenaline-fueled Shelf Awareness
“Grant’s protagonists are as compelling as ever…The character portraits are all sharp and fully realized…Grant’s mermaids are utterly terrifying, making for several thrilling confrontations, and a surprising third-act twist that will have readers clamoring for another installment.” RT Book Reviews
