About The Book:
An eerie horror debut about a little boy who recovers from a mysterious pandemic and inherits an imaginary friend who makes him do violent things…
Kids have imaginary friends. Rachel knows this. So when her young son, Billy, miraculously recovers from a horrible flu that has proven fatal for many, she thinks nothing of Delfy, his new invisible friend. After all, her family is healthy and that’s all that matters.
But soon Delfy is telling Billy what to do, and the boy is acting up and lashing out in ways he never has before. As Delfy’s influence is growing stranger and more sinister by the day, and rising tensions threaten to tear Rachel’s family apart, she clings to one purpose: to protect her children at any cost—even from themselves.
We Hear Voices is a gripping near-future horror novel that tests the fragility of family and the terrifying gray area between fear and love.
About The Author:
Evie Green is a pseudonym for a British author who has written professionally for her entire adult life. She lives by the sea in England with her husband, children, and guinea pigs, and loves writing in the very early morning, fueled by coffee.
“An electrifying science fiction thriller that chronicles the aftermath of a pandemic.”—Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)
“Evie Green expertly blends the paranormal and the ‘new normal’ in a story that is both outlandish and eerily familiar…compelling, addictive and a perfect example of how we use stories to understand ourselves, the world, and our collective social experiences.”—Anna Downes, author of The Safe Place
“We Hear Voices is startling in both its prescience and premise. Deliciously chilling, this is also a book filled with heart—the terror experienced by Rachel when she discovers her little boy has survived a terrible virus, only to suffer from voice-hearing, is breathtaking in its realism. While the plot is perfectly-paced and races to a terrifying climax, the relationships between the characters are gorgeous, and stay with the reader long after their heart rate returns to normal.”—C. J. Cooke, author of The Nesting
“A fusion of horror and social commentary that chills.”—Kirkus
