Book Details

A character-driven science fiction/horror blend, KC Jones's Black Tide is Stephen King's Cujo meets A Quiet Place.

It was just another day at the beach. And then the world ended.

Mike and Beth didn't know each other existed before the night of the meteor shower. A melancholy film producer and a house sitter barely scraping by—chance made them neighbors, a bottle of champagne brought them together, and a shared need for human connection sparked something more.

After a drunken and desperate one-night stand, the two strangers awake to discover a surprise astronomical event has left widespread destruction in its wake. But the cosmic lightshow was only part of something much bigger, and far more terrifying.

When a set of lost car keys leaves them stranded on an empty stretch of Oregon coast, when their emergency calls go unanswered and inhuman screams echo from the dunes, when the rising tide reaches for their car and unspeakable horrors close in around them, these two self-destructive souls must band together to survive a nightmare of apocalyptic scale.

In The News

“Grab your popcorn for this one....Mayhem, masses of menacing monsters, pulsing parasitic vines...this is one gnarly day at the beach.” —Jeremy Robert Johnson, author of The Loop

“A superb, fast-paced read that will compel readers to quickly devour the book.... Excellent writing, a consuming plot, and relatable characters make this an easy recommendation for library collections where sf/horror circulates well.” —Library Journal

“A relentless, nerve-jangling nightmare ride through an apocalyptic maritime hellscape. Brimming with relatable characters and shocking left turns, this is gasp-for-your-breath, peek-through-your-fingers horror, and I loved every page of it. Highly recommended!” —Jonathan Janz, author of The Siren and the Specter

Black Tide is the ultimate walk-of-shame straight to the end of the world, equal parts cataclysmic thrill ride and acerbic character study.” —Clay McLeod Chapman, author of Whisper Down the Lane

“Jones’ debut novel unfolds like a movie, a terrifying nightmare come to life, an intense, realistic portrayal of an alien invasion. The action-oriented, blisteringly fast-paced plot is authentically rendered; but beware, not all make it out alive.....” —Booklist

Black Tide is cinematic, fast-paced, pedal-to-the-metal storytelling: I found myself gasping!” —Ally Wilkes, author of All the White Spaces

“[A] snark-filled romp through a postapocalyptic world. The sarcastic, self-deprecating characters and quirky setup set this first contact tale apart.” —Publishers Weekly

“The characters are so perfectly crafted, which makes their nightmare scenario even more frightening and seemingly possible. I held my breath for them every time I turned the page.” —S.A. Barnes, author of Dead Silence
