"…creature lovers have reason to celebrate: John Leahy's Crogian makes giant insects cool again. Crogian is an entertaining tale of survival that delivers solid writing and plenty of repulsive, hungry, massive creatures."
— Gabino Iglesias, ChiZine
"Leahy shows great promise. [Crogian] is real and human…"
— Michel Sabourin, HorrorTalk.com
"CROGIAN is predominantly science fiction, but it successfully retains a palpable measure of horror, and the story works to incorporate plenty of terror that should sate the appetites of those in search of a new, refreshing piece of the horror conglomerate. Take some time out to read this novel, it’s time well spent."
— Horror Novel Reviews
"I loved Crogian...Imagine Honey I I Blew Up The Kids with teeth meets The Mist...reminiscent of the works of John Wyndham."
— Snakebite Horror Reviews
"Leahy displays genuine talent, especially in detail and characterization. I think the guy can write, and if you like believable, generally impressive writing, and an eco-horror about military stupidity, then this could be just what you are looking for. I was impressed by his vision."
— Terry Jackman, Albedo One
"...Very exciting, vivid in nature...best horror novel I have read in a long time...a must have book...10/10."
— Dark Goddess, Horror Palace
"Refreshing to read a new take on the apocalypse...Leahy has written a visually- descriptive novel that you will not forget...a perfect book to start off the new year! …recommended for fans of Steve Alten."
"Leahy's wonderfully descriptive writing style...Characterization and big moves seem to be Leahy's strong suit...I loved the way this novel made my skin crawl...Crogian was an amazing outing for a first time author...I can't wait to read what John Leahy writes next..."
"This book scared the sh-t out of me. I couldn't put it down or sleep. I want more but it ends."
— James G. Fisher III
