Industry Reviews

Craig DiLouie's One of Us is without a doubt one of the best books I'll read this year . . . This book has The Island of Dr Moreau's social conscience, the X-men's imagination and Harper Lee's heart. But it is DiLouie's skill as a storyteller that blends all of that into a compelling work of near perfection

An amazing tour-de-force . . . One of Us rattled me to the core. An engrossing, emotionally-charged book and a work of terrible beauty. I loved it, heart and soul

This is not a kind book, or a gentle book, or a book that pulls its punches. But it's a powerful book and it will change you

One of Us is a powerful and heartbreaking tale about hate fear, and truth. Craig DiLouie is fearless as he explores the dark territory of the human heart

Frightening in its familiarity, One of Us is a tale of human monsters and monstrous humans - authentic, brutal and inevitable

This seamless fable of loss, violence and hope forces us to examine what it means to be different and what it means to be human
