Taking its cue from real-life cults Last Days is an effectively creepy novel that will leave you sleeping with the lights on. * SFX * His previous novel was the superb The Ritual, but with Last Days he's gone one better. This is riveting, and Nevill is fast becoming Britain's answer to Stephen King. * The Guardian * There are books that spark the imagination. Last Days lit a bonfire. Spooky, eerie delight. This one made me perk up at unfamiliar noises and to examine the shadows a little more closely. Nevill should be ranked up near masters like Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith. This is what a horror book should be. * Suspense Magazine * Horror fans will revel in this appropriately chilling tale of modern-day murder and mayhem that stretches back several centuries ... This appropriately ghastly tale definitely lives up to its billing as a Blair Witch Project-style novel. -- Margaret Flanagan * Booklist * Obsession and megalomania, sex and power make for a sophisticated, literate and well-crafted paranormal horror. * Kirkus * This exceptional macabre tale stuns in its ability to inspire abject, primal terror. Readers will lose all hope of peaceful, undisturbed sleep. Highly recommended. * Library Journal - Starred Review * Fans of films about haunted places, otherworldly beings, and rituals gone terribly wrong will find this homage deliciously chilling. * Publisher Week * All I can say is, wow. What an amazing book. Last Days has just about everything I look for in a horror novel; it is well crafted, has a strong plot with believable characters and the horror sequences get under your skin and into your mind. And the images just won't go away. You'll find yourself replaying scenes in your mind for days. * Fangoria * In Last Days, Adam Nevill has managed to create a fusion of the Charles Manson mystique, the occult and a found footage documentary that is both a magnificent and gripping read from the very first page. * This Is Horror * Overall the supernatural elements are convincing and you are drawn into the story to the extent that you're biting your nails on one hand whilst turning the pages with the other. The horror, whilst terrifying, is not overly grotesque and is just about on the right side of dark to be universally popular. So what we are left with is another strong offering from Nevill which will leave you reading nervously into the small hours of the night. * Geek Syndicate * This is not a novel for the faint-of-heart or those averse to disturbing subject matter. It does, however, reward avid horror fans with an engrossing mystery and memorable scares. * Criminal Element * Not everyone enjoys horror stories, but for those that do read Last Days and afterwards look for more of the same from Adam Nevill who surely has the knack of creating undertones of chilling terror in an engrossing book. * Book Bitch *
