Set not too long after the end of the world, it follows a small group of some of the few remaining humans as they try to survive in a world gone mad. It's full of suspenseful moments where you have no idea what is going to happen. This is opposed to books that have long-term established characters like James Bond where you *know* the hero is going to survive. Here, all bets are off.
As for being a horror book, it gets pretty damn horrible. Some of the scenes are really disturbing on multiple levels. In places it exceeds Lovecraft's own writing.
For me this was a real page-turner. I read it all in basically one sitting. And I read it during the course of one evening and into the wee hours of the morning, which I recommend if you are a night-owl like me. Kind of like watching The Blair Witch Project projected onto a white sheet strung between two trees out in the middle of a dark forest.
If you are at all a fan of Lovecraftian fiction, you will enjoy this.
I also own the game of CTHULHU WARS and find it alot of fun. But I always just viewed the premise in the most general terms...The Old Ones returned...we fought...they won..and now the same Old Ones are now fighting for dominance. Never gave much thought as to the events leading up to that situation.
Now..we have a "personal" experience to relate to about the CTHULHU apocalypse...and it is quite a great read. Dodging the wandering hordes of creatures...and the deranged and twisted humans that worship them...it puts a unique twist on the Post Apocalypse.
I highly recommend this book...especially if you are a fan of Lovecraft.

Ben Monroe brings us to a disturbing post apocalyptic world overrun by the forces of the Mythos, a place where humans are hunted everywhere they turn. Rarely have I felt as sorry for a protagonist as I did in this ripping yarn.
