A sad, sweet little book that does post apocalyptic at a soft, intimate level.
— Garrett Cook, author of MURDERLAND and TIME PIMP
Grim, bleak storytelling, paired with simmering tension strikes the same haunting chord as Richard Matheson’s I AM LEGEND, and the overall tone is reminiscent of ROOM by Emma Donoghue and Shirley Jackson’s short story “The Lottery.
— Kristin Luna, Urban Fantasy Magazine
Carus & Mitch is punchy and scary and tense and genuinely moving. The central portrait of the book’s sibling relationship captures its mixture of friction and love spot on, with heartbreaking precision. Tim Major is an exceptional writer.
— Adam Roberts, author of Jack Glass and Bête

The barricades will hold. 

They have to.
