Specializing in villains, antiheroes, & morally ambiguous characters
“A gory, thought-provoking sequel mixing Dexter and John Wick and not for the faint-hearted”
—Kirkus, on Only Ashes Remain
"Gritty, compelling, a tale to feed the monster in all of us. I couldn’t put this one down."
—Elly Blake, NYT Bestselling author of Frostblood, on Not Even Bones
"An adolescent, yet Nietzschean, examination of humanity and horror, this engrossing debut novel asks complex philosophical questions in a pleasingly hard-to-stomach way."
—Kirkus, on Not Even Bones
"Deliciously dark and devious, with morally grey characters that make you question what is good and what is truly evil. Warning: don't read in the dark."
—Rebecca Sky, author of Arrowheart, on Not Even Bones
"Readers who are tired of the same recycled story lines will find something original here. The narrative, while dark and gruesome, is one of survival and betrayal, and will make teens question their own thoughts on humanity and how far they would be willing to go to save themselves."
—School Library Journal, on Not Even Bones
"This riveting thriller is not a reassuring read, but it is a provocative one for those who can handle violence when wielded with intentionality. Schaeffer’s antiheroes show empathy and insight as they struggle to define the line between human and monster."
—Booklist, Stared review on Not Even Bones
"Twisty, grisly, genre-bending and immersive, Not Even Bones will grab you by the throat and drag you along as it gleefully tramples all of your expectations."
—Sarah Holland, NYT Bestselling author of Everless, on Not Even Bones
