CREEPY CREATURE FEATURE!,
This review is from: Snowblind (Kindle Edition)
Michael McBride's latest novella from DarkFuse Press, SNOWBLIND, is a departure of sorts for him. It doesn't offer his customary blend of science fiction and horror with which he started his career, nor does it have the elements of suspense and horror he's used of late, specifically to carve out twisted tomes involving demented serial killers--no, this shorter work has none of those trademarks of his. What it does have is a lot of chills (and not simply because it takes place in the middle of a huge blizzard) and a terrifying monster of legend, several of them in fact. This story shoots out of the starting gate like a thoroughbred giving its all, and doesn't let up until, completely out of breath like that winning horse, you, the reader, reach the finish line. Well-written as always, with detailed descriptions that place you smack in the middle of the plight of the four hunters trapped in this hellishly cold nightmare, McBride has you practically praying for the protagonists' survival against a creature from your worst nightmare, a creature he conceals from the reader until virtually the last paragraph. I read this novella in one sitting, it was that engrossing and captivating! You owe yourself to buy it and do the same.
My highest recommendation!
