Beware the Sumerian Rapture! The Rampant is officially out in the world! And I’m thrilled. Queer girls trying to save humanity by kicking off the end of the world? What’s not to like?!
What the heck do others have to say, you ask? Well…Okay then…
“This clever and surprisingly fun take on the rapture is the perfect theological horror story.” — Publishers Weekly
“Day perfectly balances dark and light in The Rampant, and offers up a fresh take on apocalyptic fiction that draws on ancient mythology and literature to create something that feels completely original and new. “ —The Book Smugglers
“The Rampant was so much fun to read! Is that the right way to blurb a horror novel? I don’t know, but it’s the truth. Julie Day’s novel is smart, playful, sly and, yes, horrifying too. A short gem of a book.” —Victor LaValle
“The girl-powered post-apocalyptic Sumerian underworld quest I didn’t know I needed.” —Sarah Pinsker
“THE RAMPANT is one of the most original Apocalypse tales I’ve read in ages. Julie C. Day avoids cliché and gives the reader the end-times by way of Sumerian myth” — Nathan Ballingrud
“The clash of [Emelia & Gillian’s] modern feminist sensibilities with the cruel and rigid theocracy of the very oldest gods out-weirds much of the New Weird. In The Rampant, Julie Day calls us to visit a fantastical landscape in a voice that is hers alone.” — James Patrick Kelly
