Editorial Reviews

Review

"Gould's debut is an utterly dreamy romance in the midst of a living nightmare, and a true testament to the power of love in a world of hate. It's exactly the book we need right now." - Dahlia Adler, author of Cool for the Summer and editor of His Hideous Heart

"An absorbing mystery and wholly original ghost story. Gould's writing is mesmerizing, drawing you into Snakebite until it slips under your skin and lingers like the Dark itself. A haunting story I won't shake off anytime soon." - Emma Berquist, author of Devils Unto Dust and Missing, Presumed Dead

"The Dead and the Dark has something for everyone: thrills, chills, a mystery that'll keep readers guessing and a romance they'll absolutely love rooting for. Snakebite is a setting as unforgettably alive as the characters who inhabit it and once it gets hold of you, it won't let go. A riveting, spooky and expertly-crafted debut from a talented new voice in YA fiction." - Courtney Summers, New York Times bestselling author of Sadie

"Gould's debut has everything you need in a book: an engrossing mystery, a compelling love story, and a setting so utterly alive you won't believe it isn't on a map. The Dead and the Dark will keep you in its grasp until the last perfect page." - Erica Waters, author of Ghost Wood Song

"The Dead and the Dark gave me everything I want from a great supernatural murder mystery: a haunting small town, a fresh new romance, and the very best kind of monster―the kind we make ourselves." - Francesca Zappia, author of Now Entering Addamsville and Eliza and Her Monsters

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as a Stephen King novel
By alissadg on August 10, 2021
If you know me, you know how much I love Stephen King. Just finished 'The Dead and The Dark' by Courtney Gould. This book is like a perfect combination of 'Needful Things' and 'The Outsider'. Give me a creepy small town with a deadly mystery any day and I'm happy! I couldn't put this one down. So well done and I can't wait to read more of Courtney Gould's work. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5 stars all the way!
