Praise for The Reyes Incident


I tore through this novella quickly. Morgan’s writing is fast-paced and kept me glued to my Kindle app. I enjoyed the bits of police reports and emails mixed in with the narrative. Like some reviewers said, I do wish it was a bit longer because I loved the story and wanted more, but I see why it ended the way it did. Overall, it’s a great read, especially if you like the idea of killer mermaids, as the ones in The Reyes Incident definitely don’t disappoint!


It would be too easy to say this story is like the descent only with mermaids. Briana Morgan offers so much more in this investigative horror thriller. Every section of this drips with engagement, the story hooking the reader in multiple different ways that you can’t help but feel pulled along by the currents of its story. The characters are compelling, feeling lived-in and scarred.


I read this book over the splash of a week… If you want to feel chilled to your core and also enjoy killer mermaids. this book doesn’t disappoint… the way [Morgan] writes is super superb, phenomenal, mysterious at times too. I only am left wondering if there will be a sequel as I am left with so many questions. I fell in love with the characters. I wanted to know more. I am swimming away just thinking about how epic this read was.
