Scott Shepherd should be on every reader's radar in 2013. First with the serialized novel The Seventh Day
, and followed by Descending Son
, his gifts for storytelling will provide steady rewards. Drawing on diverse influences that range from horror and fantasy to classic noir, Shepherd's voice is decidedly unique, and while his storytelling may absorb the focus, with his cinematic gifts for action and cliffhangers, it is in his understanding of the human heart that his writing steps forward and shines.
-Michael Koryta, New York Times-bestselling author of The Prophet
"With vivid characters, provocative insights, and rapid-fire twists, Scott Shepherd
redefines and sweetens storytelling, serving up satisfying nail-biters."
-New York Times
author, Karin Slaughter
"A wild ride from a born storyteller. Scott Shepherd
makes his brave new world explode on the page with all the kinetic zeal and fertile invention of the best pulp writers. You never want the story to end."
