Set in the fictional Apoc Hill, dark forces centre around the inhabitants of an old house, where a young girl lives with a murderous father and brother, she herself now prone to murderous thoughts from the demons within, setting in motion a hideous chain of events.
Bill Reed is a writer, keeping busy in his daughter's absence, who suddenly finds himself faced with terrifying behaviour from those around him.
Meanwhile as the mayhem begins, another young girl, Alice, waits patiently for her father in a car, quickly noticing that something bad is outside, and hoping for his return.
Although the title suggests apocalyptic goings-on, this is very much a horror apocalypse rather than the usual end-0f-world/post nuclear/zombie outbreak that has been flooding the market lately, and while there are still some elements of traditional stories in this vein, Stott's solid horror credentials breathe new life into the genre with some genuinely creepy characters, and as macabre events unfold relentlessly, the reader is constantly in a state of flux, and wrenched from any comfort zone they may have had. The fear and confusion of the main characters seep silently into the subconscious, and Stott's knack of taking an everyday location and transforming it into a seething hellhole is a rare talent.
The ending introduces the second part, while offering enough story to satisfy the reader, yet I predict few will be, as this page turner delivers on every level, and will drag you kicking and screaming back to the next instalment.
This realm is not an easy genre to write and adult horror less. The phycological mess of the minds of the characters is credible. The background was an interesting as the now.
The characters where well crafted. How the author; moves, changes and had total control of the characters is excellent. If everybody includes the Author, Readers and Characters where placed at an Asylum, believe me were never got out & the doctors will had a party.
The author creates a scenario worthy of the story. How he lead by different roads and at the same time in the same path t9ld me this author is worthy of folllowing.
I can't wait to read more from Stott. All this lead me to a 5☆ Review in this book.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I'm very honest with my Reviews, not only for me, the author or other readers, how an author know when did something good or need improvement? How another reader believe in my review? If I didn't read the book, I don't Review.
If the book is good, Review. If the book isn't good, Review. With that we all benefit, readers, authors & readers searching for something new or special. My opinions are my own.
