One of Us

by Craig DiLouie

Sci-Fi and Fantasy

One of Us Synopsis

THEY CALL IT THE PLAGUE. A generation of children born with extreme genetic mutations. THEY CALL IT A HOME. But it's a place of neglect and forced labour. THEY CALL HIM A FREAK. But Dog is just a boy who wants to be treated as normal. THEY CALL THEM DANGEROUS. They might be right. The story of a lost generation, and a boy who just wants to be one of us.


One of Us Press Reviews

You shouldn't believe there aren't any truly original stories out there anymore, because One of Us is one of a kind -- Nicholas Sansbury Smith

Disturbing, beautiful and all-too believable, One of Us is a phenomenal monster story and a powerhouse of a novel. DiLouie continues to be the master of writing the human heart and all the terror it contains -- Peter Clines, author of THE FOLD

This is not a kind book, or a gentle book, or a book that pulls its punches. But it's a powerful book and it will change you -- Seanan McGuire

Craig DiLouie's One of Us is without a doubt one of the best books I'll read this year . . .

This book has The Island of Dr Moreau's social conscience, the X-men's imagination and Harper Lee's heart. But it is DiLouie's skill as a storyteller that blends all of that into a compelling work of near perfection -- Bracken MacLeod, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author

This seamless fable of loss, violence and hope forces us to examine what it means to be different and what it means to be human -- Patrick Freivald, author of JADE SKY

Frightening in its familiarity, One of Us is a tale of human monsters and monstrous humans - authentic, brutaland inevitable -- David Walton, internationally bestselling author of THE GENIUS PLAGUE

One of Us is a powerful and heartbreaking tale about hate fear, and truth. Craig DiLouie is fearless as he explores the dark territory of the human heart -- Jonathan Maberry, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author

An amazing tour-de-force . . . One of Us rattled me to the core. An engrossing, emotionally-charged book and a work of terrible beauty. I loved it, heart and soul -- John Dixon, Bram Stoker award-winning author of PHOENIX ISLAND
