What began as a brave and bold adventure has become a nightmare.
They are trapped and must confront each other . . . and a threat
that reaches beyond the fury of the elements, something far more
primal and deadly.

Deeply, deeply disturbing.
-- STEPHEN KING
Katsu adds a rich vein of horror to her imaginative retelling . . .
astonishingly atmospheric, with a strong sense of claustrophobia,
despite the vast prairies and mountains . . . this is an
enthralling and chilling read. -- Laura Wilson * GUARDIAN *
Uneasy, nauseous, slow-burning tale that marries historical fiction
with a hint of the supernatural. Great detailing; colourful
characterization; some supremely ominous stuff, but always reined
in at the final moment to rack up the tension even more. Loved it!
-- JOANNE HARRIS, author of Chocolat
This . . . is supernatural suspense at its finest. It is strangely
ethereal, yet gritty, with one eye on the distant skyline and the
other on the bloody journey. If historical novels are your
thing, The Hunger
delivers a believable, fully
realized 19th-century America. But the best thing about The
is that it will scare the pants off you. -- Danielle
Trussoni * NEW YORK TIMES *
An absorbing thriller that had me digging into the history behind
this tale as soon as I'd read the last page . . . Her descriptions
of the land are movingly beautiful, but there is danger even here.
