Little Star

Little Star

‘The new Stephen King. Don’t miss it’ The Times

He found her as a baby, abandoned in the forest. He saved her life. With her first breath – a perfect, musical note – he realised she was no ordinary child.

It was for her own protection that he hid her from the authorities. Was it his fault, what she turned into? Or was that why she was left for dead in the first place? The girl who became a little star. Who became, with her extraordinary powers, the most terrifying thing imaginable.

In John Ajvide Lindqvist’s fourth masterpiece, he ratchets up the tension until the story reaches its blood-chilling conclusion. In doing so, he confirms his place as the undisputed new king of horror.

'There's an eerie, otherworldly feel that lends creeping menace throughout ... he's up there with the best literary horror writers' Independent on Sunday.

'Lindqvist proved his knack for writing about sinister youngsters in Let The Right One In, and the detail here is faultless. The imagery is intense ... the descriptions of human emotions are thorough … the conclusion is delightfully gruesome.' Sci-fi Now.

'Excellent. And very bloody. And near unputdownable ... a superbly crafted, deliciously twisted constantly shocking tale that's almost entirely populated by loathsome characters who are fascinating to read about ... brilliant' SFX.
'As keen as the edge of a broken glass ... Somehow Lindqvist ducks trite when delving into this tale of homicidal emo girls by twisting up his characters so far it's hard to tell whether they're sympathetic or to be feared … this is best read with the lights on, far away from girls with black hair' The Wharf.
