POV: Third person.
BLUSH FACTOR: You won’t be reading this to many people due to the large number of eff-words.
STAND-ALONE OR CLIFFHANGER ENDING? The main story of this volume is complete. It is clear, though, by the ending that more, much more is to come. In other words, if you read to the end of this novel, you will crave for the next.
THE WRITING AND EDITING: The writing and editing are good, resulting in a fast-read. Much faster than one would presume for a 250 page book. I suppose the read is so fast because of the use of dialogue and terse description. At any rate, if you are okay with the frequency of profanities, you will enjoy this book. I know I did.
‘…A scream snapped Amy from her slumber, and it took her a moment to realize that the scream wasn’t hers.
Terry stumbled out of bed first, waking everyone by flipping on the light. “Where’s Liz?” He followed the scream to the window. “Oh my god.” He sprinted toward the door and was out of the hallway before Amy was out of bed.
“Mommy?” Maisie asked, whimpering.
Amy walked to her daughter, scooping her off the bed to soothe her. “It’s okay, sweetheart.” But her voice betrayed her as she looked out the window, spying Liz in the center of the road, screaming bloody murder. Both still dressed in their pajamas, Amy carried Maisie down the hall, taking the elevator down. The receptionist Amy passed in the lobby was already on the phone with the police, and Liz’s screams grew louder as she held tight to her father, madness in her eyes.
“Shh, it’s okay, Lizzy,” Terry said, holding her up. “It’s okay.”
But Liz only clawed at her father’s back, her cheeks red from screaming, tears flowing from her eyes.
Maisie tightened her arms around Amy’s neck, distressed by her sister’s crying, and buried her face into her mother’s shoulder. And while Amy continued to reassure her daughter that everything was fine, she found that she had mostly repeated the message for herself.
“Sweetheart, I don’t understand what you’re talking about,” Terry said, trying to keep Liz still. “You have to slow down. What happened?”
“S-something took him,” Liz replied. “I-I-I—” She shut her eyes, her mouth closed, but her lips still trembling. She swallowed and then forced it out. “I-I don’t know what it was.”
“Took who?” Terry asked.
“M-m-m-ax,” Liz said.
One of the hotel workers who had been the first one out at the scene frowned. “Max Winstead?”
“Okay,” Terry said, his voice soft. “You’re okay now.”
Liz whimpered and clung tight to her father.
For the second time today, the police were called, and paramedics checked the health of one of the Holloway girls. Liz had calmed down some by the time the authorities arrived, and she sat stoic and motionless while the paramedics performed their examination.
The police tried questioning her, but she couldn’t spit out much more than the fact that she and the boy Max had gone to the mine, and that she saw something, and then she ran.
“What did you see?” The officer asked.
Amy leaned close, fixated on her daughter’s response, convinced she already knew what her daughter had seen. Convinced that whatever was happening here was more than just Amy’s own illness.
“A man,” Liz answered. “He was… hurt.”
“Hurt how?” The officer asked.
“His face,” Liz answered. “There was something wrong with his face.”
When Liz started to break down again, the officer closed his notebook and then turned to Terry and Amy. “I need to speak with you two for a moment.”
With Maisie still in her arms, Amy placed her next to Liz in the back of the ambulance. “Just stay right…’
