Quotes

'A true master of horror'

James Herbert

'Masterton's new novel is promisingly chilling in its premise. There is something about creepy children that just adds a whole new level to a horror, and it sounds like Masterton is completely going to town with that here'

Cultured Vultures

'The characters, plot and setting work together to create a believable and enthralling supernatural thriller which kept me turning the pages from the first chapter right through to the final page. If you're a fan of British horror novels I'd encourage you to give this a try. I loved it'

SF Crowsnest

'A cracking read'

LoveReading

'Imagine something like <i>The Strain</i>, but with occult vibes taking place in a sewer. Now top it all off with a police procedural, and you won't be far off ... If you love horror of all sorts and want to be scared, <i>The Children God Forgot</i> is for you. Masterton is, well, a master of writing horror ... You are in for a hell of a ride!'
