--Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of GLIMPSE and V-WARS
"I am unable to think of a more original novel in any genre. I've never taken LSD and now I don't have to; after finishing NARAKA, its hideous, chimeral imagery raced ceaseless Tartarean circles in my brain, like a spew of appalling living things, and I was helpless to stop it. This book is a must-read for fans of any type of heavy-weight non-mainstream fiction, an unparalleled literary carpet-bombing that will warp your mind for some time to come."
--Edward Lee, author of THE BIGHEAD and WHITE TRASH GOTHIC
"A frenzied explosion of controlled lunacy unlike anything else you'll read this year ... or next."
--David J. Schow, author of THE SHAFT
"A gut punch of a novel that brings to mind-and then exceeds-the hellscapes of Dante and Bosch, read NARAKA at your own risk: its images will infiltrate your being and take root in your mind."
-Lucy Taylor, author of THE SAFETY OF UNKNOWN CITIES
"A stark, brutal vision of a future shrouded in darkness and steeped in blood. This is sharp-edged science fiction that claws deeper into your brain with every word you read."
--Tim Waggoner, author of THE MOUTH OF THE DARK
"Many works deal with the darker sides of existence and what it means to be alive, to be human, or something other than human--anything but human--but I have honestly never read anything that does it quite the way Manzetti does it in NARAKA. Raw and deeply disturbing, I can guarantee you NARAKA is unlike anything you've experienced before. Not to be missed"
-Greg F. Gifune, author of SAVAGE and A WINTER SLEEP
"This is a wild ride through a new kind of hell. Visceral. Reminiscent of Clive Barker"
--Michael Bailey, Bram Stoker Award Winning Author
