“Adam Cesare makes his presence felt with Mercy House. A no-holds-barred combo of survival horror and the occult.”—Laird Barron, author of The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All
“Adam Cesare’s Mercy House is a rowdy, gory, blood-soaked horror tale guaranteed to keep you up at night. And if that was all it was, I’d have been a happy reader. But Cesare has a maturity far and away beyond his years. His characters are treated with a surprising capacity for understanding and empathy, giving them an unexpected depth rarely seen among the nightmare crowd.Mercy House is the kind of novel you sprint through, eating up the pages as fast as you can turn them, and yet it lingers in the mind like a haunting memory, or the ghost of a smell. Cesare is poised to take the reins of the new generation. Looking for the new face of horror? This is it right here.”—Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award–winning author of The Dead Won’t Die and Dead City
“Mercy House is 100% distilled nightmare juice. Adam Cesare notches up the horror to nigh-unbearable levels. Even my skin was screaming by the end of this book.”—Nick Cutter, author of The Troop
The countdown begins. I am stunned and humbled that these three authors offered such kind words, I’m a huge fan of all.
There’s one week left to pre-order Mercy House. After June 9th, you’ll just be plain ordering it. If you’ve ever been into any of my work, I urge you to pick up a (digital-only) copy. I think this novel is some of my best (and undoubtedly my darkest) work.
If you want to help me out: please help spread the word on or around the day of release (Tuesday, June 9th) and if you like the book please consider leaving a brief review on the retailer site of your choice (amazon, B&N, ibooks, etc.).
If you’re waiting to check out some reviews before you take the plunge here’s a good one from Wag the Fox and a more conflicted (but still incisive and nuanced) positive review from The Novel Pursuit.
