"What debut novelist Adams brings to the scene in a planned trilogy is an unhinged but disquietly clear perspective on survivor’s guilt and the grimy nature of humanity... Adams has an excellent sense of timing, delivering gasp-inducing moments that punctuate her nightmare with verve."
~ Kirkus Reviews (★ Starred Review)
"Adams’ fantasy is brilliant! It’s McCarthy’s The Road on hope steroids. Adams’ narrative is the prose of the world’s destruction, beautiful yet horrible. Her amazing characters are full of both hope and hopelessness in the face of death—and worse. This is what apocalyptic fiction will aspire to be from now on."

"White Horse may be Alex Adams’ first published novel, but it is written with such skill and confidence that it sits easily in the pantheon of post-apocalyptic thrillers alongside the likes of Justin Cronin and Stephen King."
"Alex Adams’ debut, White Horse, is the first in a brilliant trilogy which will no doubt be ranked among the great fantasy novels. Weaving together complex and intriguing characters and exquisite prose, the author skillfully draws you into a world turned ghastly by the White Horse pandemic.
White Horse shows how hope and also love, compassion and courage can endure the horrific trials of a post-apocalyptic world."
"A haunting, beautiful tale of survival in a world that has been destroyed by the sins of man. In the tradition of Cormac McCarthy’s "The Road" and Justin Cronin’s "The Passage," WHITE HORSE paints a vivid picture of both brutality and enduring hope.
Compelling, visceral, beautiful—with a shocking climax that will make readers gasp—WHITE HORSE is post-apocalyptic fiction at its best, transcending its genre and marking Alex Adams as a rising star in the literary world. "
