Face the Night received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews!

Posted by Shortwave Media on

“This outstanding novel is reminiscent of early works by Stephen King and Peter Straub. An impressive, complex horror tale—two (rotting) thumbs up.”

Kirkus Reviews awarded Alan Lastufka's Face the Night a starred review today!

The review from Kirkus is overwhelmingly positive. And the fact that it was starred is incredible. According to the Washington Post, only 2% of all indie books submitted are awarded a starred review.

Kirkus is the industry standard for professional reviews. It’s used by everyone from small first-time indie authors, all the way up to the largest names in publishing. And it’s the publication that thousands of librarians, small bookstore owners, and readers use to find new titles. We are so thankful the reviewers there enjoyed the book.
