Staff Reviews

If you were as obsessed with M.R. Carey’s The Girl with All the Gifts as our staff was, you’ll be curious about Fellside. Don’t expect a reprise of Girl, because it’s a completely different creature, but if you can take Fellside on its own terms, you’re in for a hell of a ride. Prison life and ghosts take center stage in this creepy, thought-provoking novel that I read in three breathless sittings. 

— Flannery

“Let's say you've been convicted of murder and sent to a maximum security prison for the remainder of your life, which should be a while since you are not that old. Then let's say that not only can you not remember killing anyone, but you can't remember who you are. Could things get any worse? How about if the ghost of the little boy you supposedly killed visits you in prison to ask for your help. What do you do? From the author of The Girl With All the Gifts comes another gripping and unforgettable story.”
— Linda Bond, Auntie's Bookstore, Spokane, WA


A haunting and heartbreaking thriller from the author of the USA Today bestseller The Girl With All the Gifts.

It's a place where even the walls whisper.

And one voice belongs to a little boy with a message for Jess.

Will she listen?

Discover M. R. Carey's powerful new novel - a chillingly atmospheric tale filled with tension, action, and emotion.
