“[Tracy Fobes] crafts a well-written, imaginative and quick-moving horror tale that’s plenty enjoyable. Demonic possession may be a tried-and-true horror staple, but by placing the maritime tale in the early 1800s, [Fobes] imbues the old theme with new life.”

“Overall, ‘The Stowaway’ by [Tracy Fobes] is an expertly crafted book that follows the tradition of maritime adventure and classic horror. Showing an excellent knowledge of life on the high seas during the 1800s, [Fobes] is able to build a claustrophobic sense of supernatural terror as the characters are forced to deal with the dangers of nature and an unknown horror possessing the ship. I highly recommend this book to any who loves good horror with a supernatural flare and historical fiction.”
