A good book to read at night
on July 13, 2001
This book deals with two stories that sort of intertwine with each other and could also stand apart from each other as well. But the way it is written the two stories intertwine very well.
The main bad 'guy' is a energy being that wakes up every 50 years or so and causes a little havoc before returning to sleep again. The problem this time is the creature has woken up in a small town. The 'creature' causes trouble with the sheriff with little pranks with the police radio at first but as the story progresses the creature becomes even more mean spirited and stronger.
The second story deals with a person named Sand and how his friends, wife, unborn son and his hybrid wolf/dog was killed by the upper class college boys from a neighboring town and how the then sheriff sided with the 'good old boys' against Sand after he gained some payback against the college boys.
Sand with his friends try and help the remaining residents battle the energy creature while at the same time trying to help them escape before the goverment drops "the big one" on the town in a attempt to destroy the creature.
If you haven't already read this book I will recommend that you try and get a copy of it because the ending is strange and deserves a sequel written about it.
There is some funny moments in it and if you have read his "Ashes" series then you will already know what to expect when a 5 star general responds to several news reporters' questions. The energy creature also has some funny one liners as well to sort of break the tension but Mr. Johnstone quickly draws you back in to the tension filled story.
