“Let us then be introduced to the actors in a placid way; let us see them going about their ordinary business, undisturbed by forebodings, pleased with their surroundings; and into this calm environment let the ominous thing put out its head, unobtrusively at first, and then more insistently, until it holds the stage.”
M. R. James

"As a ritual exercise in entrapment, both in the past and the present, a kind of hymn to how all our histories – vast and petty – constrain us, The House of Small Shadows is often nothing short of mesmerising."

− The Guardian

"Adam Nevill explores a primal modern phobia – the fear of dolls and puppets – and spirals off into an exploration of a long-forgotten English folk tradition that is eminently believable at the same time as it is horrifying. A wonderfully creepy and disturbing novel."

− The Independent

"His previous novel was the superb The Ritual, but with Last Days he's gone one better. This is riveting, and Nevill is fast becoming Britain's answer to Stephen King."

− The Guardian

"The Ritual by Adam Nevill is a mind-twisting journey into the dark backwoods of terror. Deeply disturbing and absolutely riveting."

− Jonathan Maberry, NY Times Bestselling author of DEAD OF NIGHT and THE KING OF PLAGUES

"Apartment 16 is an impressive book, one that will make you think but not at the cost of neglecting the need to entertain, a demonstration of what the field of horror is capable of at its very best."
