Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Brutal, relentless, yet oddly uplifting, The Terror is masterfully chilling work. Entertainment Weekly
The best and most unusual historical novel I have read in years. The Boston Globe
Dan Simmons writes with the salty grace and precision of Patrick O'Brian. But in piling supernatural nightmare upon historical nightmare, layering mystery upon mystery, he has produced a turbocharged vision of popular doom. Men's Journal
The Terror is nothing less than a revelation. Dan Simmons is a giant among novelists, and I am in awe of his achievement. Lincoln Child
