Advance Praise for THOSE WHO PREY

Wholly absorbing and utterly haunting, Those Who Prey is most chilling in its eerily memoir-like feel. Fans of (literal) cult fiction, this is your new Must Read.  —Dahlia Adler, author of Just Visiting and editor of His Hideous Heart

Those Who Prey is a chilling debut that takes an uncomfortably thorough look at just how easily one could fall victim to a fanatical group. Moffett’s thoughtful prose made me ache for Emily and her friends. I found myself cringing as the swirling and destructive whirlpool pulled them into deeper waters, but could not stop turning the pages. I devoured this book.     —Erin A. Craig, New York Times bestselling author of House of Salt and Sorrows

Those Who Prey is a slow-burn suspense that crackles into a wildfire. Jennifer Moffett is a masterful storyteller; get ready to devour this piercing and provocative debut.     —Kit Frick, author of See All the StarsAll Eyes on Us, and I Killed Zoe Spanos 

This book is so frighteningly real! Those Who Preyis a gripping, unnerving exploration of loneliness, the awful desire to belong and the lengths one will go to be chosen. It’s also a reminder that those who promise everything also tend to demand it as well. The stranger the book became, the less I was able to put it down, and it lingers with you long after the last page. A thrilling and terrifying read.”     —Jimmy Cajoleas, author of Minor Prophetsand The Rambling

Those Who Prey is a smart, provocative page-turner that issues a chilling warning about the danger of cults. Moffett’s deftly written descriptions carry us on waves from the Gulf Coast to Boston, Italy, and back as Emily learns to accept where she’s been and embrace who she has become. Ultimately a book about accepting our whole selves and learning to be at peace with the present even if we never fully understand our past. A must-read for any teen headed to college and all fans of Sadie.               —Shana Youngdahl, author of As Many Nows As I Can Get

 Those Who Prey is a chilling, nuanced debut that artfully explores how the lure of belonging can mask the bleed of manipulation. —Laura Taylor Namey, author of The Library of Lost Things and A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow

It kept me up into the night, then invaded my dreams.     —Eva V. Gibson, author of Together We Caught Fire

This book is a well-paced wild ride.     —Liz Lawson, author of The Lucky Ones
