You get a whole bunch of that when these monsters take over a hospital and start eating or turning people. It appears the deadly ancient ones, seven monsters of legend, are back to do what they do best.
A young lady seeking her absent boyfriend lands right in the middle of this mess. Along with an injured cop, and a strange little man who happens to be “THE” master monster hunter.
The author wastes no time stirring up trouble for these characters and keeps monsters and humans busy: running, dying, the usual stuff.
I did like the creatures, the human characters, and the plot. But it felt a bit rushed at times, and the story didn’t always flow smoothly. And I wanted to know more about the monster hunter and the young woman’s connection with monsters. I suspect that’s the authors plan as I learned at the ending, which was an ending and a cliff hanger, that there’s more to come in this tale.
While this first book didn’t completely wow me, it certainly showed promise and I will be reading the next book. You see, the author has me very curious about one particular monster. I have a feeling I’ll be getting some of the answers I seek and plenty more action.
I think the author did a good job of setting the characters up for the reader to get invested in. I found myself caring about them and felt bad when several were killed. Oddly, Miller didn't work that well for me. I loved his fascination by everything modern, but he just didn't click for me. Enjoyed reading him fight, though.
I was glad to read the epilogue. Very nice set up for something that has never happened before has happened, and what will happen when the characters meet up again.
The modern culture references make sense, but I do wonder how the story will age.
Worth picking up and trying.
At the same time, however, these great aspects are just as often followed by true klunkers. At one point, a character finds a room with dead bodies- and then(!) has a "sixth sense" of danger.
Definitely worth a try, but not something I can wholeheartedly recommend by any means.
