The Gathering has already received rave reviews ahead of publication:

“C. J. Tudor is getting better and bolder with every novel, and the bar was pretty high to start with. The Gathering is an incredibly exciting novel, tightly plotted and brilliant tense, with an atmosphere you could eat with a spoon.”—Stuart Turton
 
“C. J. Tudor is a genius. The Gathering kept me on the edge of my seat to the very last page. . . . A tour de force!”—Ava Glass

“My first vampire book but it definitely won’t be my last! Really enjoyed The Gathering, a chilling and claustrophobic story set in the snowy wilderness of Alaska.”—B. A. Paris

“Vampires, or ‘vampyrs,’ roam the earth—and provoke heated political debate—in this wildly imaginative supernatural thriller from Tudor . . . This frostbitten procedural is a bloody good time.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
