Publishers Weekly on SUBHUMAN

With SUBHUMAN preparing to hit the shelves in 13 days, it’s time to start rolling out the reviews. The first is a doozy!

“Building on the success of 2015’s Subterrestrial, thriller powerhouse McBride begins his Unit 51 series with meticulous quasiscientific conceptual groundwork, drawing readers into a satisfyingly slow-building, intellectualized mystery.” – Publishers Weekly

ANCIENT ENEMY Reviewed By Examiner

The second review for my forthcoming novel ANCIENT ENEMY is a good one. Thanks to Josef Hernandez of the Minneapolis Books Examiner for the killer review. I feel as though he really “got” the work. My favorite snippet:

“In order to protect his family, Sani must face down an evil that has plagued his family and his people for centuries and overcome it to not only save his family and livelihood but to also understand who he is in the world. McBride handles this with a deftness that is a testament to his talent and which leaves the reader honored to have shared in the experience with him through this novel.”
