Product description


Wake is the creepiest book I've ever loved: gorgeous, horrifying and insanely inventive. Elizabeth Knox continues to monopolize my awe pedestal.

Sly and ingenious.

One for fans of Stephen King - Red magazine

Wake is a triumph all of its own. Knox writes with a rare psychological acuity about humans under pressure in an intolerable, incomprehensible predicament. - Financial Times

Knox keeps the monster off stage and examines the psychological consequences of its depredations on the survivors, subverting the norms of the horror genre and thus making the ambiguous finale all the more startling. Wake reads like a collaboration between Dean Koontz and John Wyndham, rewritten by Margaret Atwood. - Guardian

What starts off as a horror story builds into a taut, psychological sci-fi thriller that is alive to the troubling questions of what happens to humans when civilisation as they know it disintegrates. - Sunday Times Culture

Elizabeth Knox has the most original and lateral literary mind in New Zealand . . . I steamed through the book; by the end my hair stood of end. I shouted , Holy shit! several times. - Metro

Terrifying dystopia in which survivors of a massacre hide behind a 'No-Go' screen - Sunday Times

Book Description

First comes catastrophe. Then comes survival.

Atmospheric, gripping, Wake is a chilling tale of horror and survival, by New Zealand's preeminent authors: a compelling story about how people cope when threatened by an invisible monster.
