Christine Morgan knows it's the details that hook a reader, and throughout she peppers her story with descriptions and minutiae that enrich the story. There are thrills, suspense, adventure and horror aplenty, so if you like fast paced novels that keep you glued to the page from start to finish, check it out!
The Horned Ones of the title are a race of ancient beings that once populated the earth but have been reduced to dwelling in the dark places of the world. Now, with the help of a rather disturbed individual, they have a plan to reclaim what was once their own. And it doesn't bode well for those who have been taken. Especially if you are abductee number 7! To say more would be to spoil what is a rather tasty novel from a writer who is definitely on my radar now. Well worth having a read if you like dark horror fiction!
When I began this riveting book, I thought I was reading an adventure/thriller, a story of courage (and the opposite, fearful selfishness) in the face of a natural disaster--an underground cave system partially collapsing, trapping three full tours of curious tourists and their guides. Well, I did get all that, and in the meantime watched the human condition unfold, as certainly times this troubling bring out the true character of any individual, and the characters in "The Horned Ones: Cornucopia" certainly run the continuum from almost all good to almost all evil, including "bad guys" who actually demonstrate altruism, and other bad guys the reader will hope never to encounter.
But this novel is not just a thriller--this novel is also scientifically bent, exploratory, and contains a great deal of horror, the kind of horror that made my hair stand on end and chills run tiny spider legs along my spine (perhaps, considering the story's locale, tiny albino cave eyeless cave spiders). The horror that rules the last portion of the book is virtually unforgettable--and left this reviewer hoping for a sequel.
