Author D. Nathan Hilliard engages and enthralls the reader with panache, humor, and horror as his reluctant hero struggles to understand what is happening and what must be done to live until dawn.
The story reminded me of Rod Serling's "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street" (If you have never seen this classic Twilight Zone episode, try to find it on YouTube.)
Hilliard takes the story down a longer, steeper, faster, deeper path than Serling did. This author displays amazing (and rare) style and ease as he creates his characters, situations and locations.
The tale is gripping and fun from beginning to end -- and you'll never want to walk under trees in the dark again!
Suitable for all ages, but the horror and violence are probably too disturbing for young children.
The rare scenes where we get monsters are freaky and well done. The mystery of where these abominations come from and what this anomaly is provides fertile ground for an atmospheric horror tale but that promise is mired in page after page of boring dialogue and inching through a dead neighborhood with nothing happening but inane conversation. This is the second book I have read by Hilliard. I read Spiderstalk and found it creative and delightfully odd horror, cant say the same here.
Until…it all goes sideways. Overnight, carnivorous plants that suck you empty like an arachnid and lure you in with their pulsing florescent colors come out of nowhere. God awful creatures straight out of nightmares prowl the streets, tracking you down and tearing you limb from limb.
This is all kinds of creepy. Throw together a dysfunctional family, a bunch of people who don’t have a clue how to handle things, and some horrific monsters, and the words fly by. I read this straight through, enjoying every attack, every new monster, and the epic showdowns.
The ending was solid, yet mysterious, leaving things open enough to include more if the author chooses. Which I hope he does.
But overall it was a fun read with a great ending, well before the epilogue, that was a bit unnecessarily lengthy. There's a sequel out now too.
