The Speaker says: 'A story of the most terrific kind is duly recorded in this extremely powerful book. The skill with which its fantastic horrors are presented to us is undeniable.'

The Daily Graphic says: 'It is the kind of book which you put down only for the purpose of turning up the gas and making sure that no person or thing is standing behind your chair; and it is a book which no one will put down until finished, except for the reason above described.'

The Glasgow Herald says: 'The weird horror of this being grows upon the reader. It is difficult, if not impossible, to lay down this book when once begun.'

The Academy says: '"Dracula," by Mr Bram Stoker, was creepy, but Mr Marsh goes one, oh! many more than one, better. This surprising and ingenious story succeeds in producing that sensation of horror which should make the flesh of even the least susceptible reader creep

.'

Answers says: 'Mr Marsh's famous novel is one of the most enthrallingly interesting narratives of the past few years. I strongly advise all my readers to order the book at once.'

The Literary World says: 'An ingenious, weird, and thrilling story, narrated with a clearness of style and a fulness of incident which hold the reader's attention from first to last.'

The St James's Budget says: 'The frontispiece is a nightmare, and the terrors are thrillingly described. One is compelled to read it to the end.'

The Birmingham Daily Gazette says: 'A powerful and vigorous story of a most terrible character, told with skill and ingenuity. It is even more strange and mysterious than Bulwer's "Zanoni."'
