***SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS***
...later in the book they travel - outside...on bicycles. BIKES. Not the vroom vroom kind, but the "let's pedal all day and hope we don't pop a tire" kind. THROUGH HELL. Actual biblical Hell that has come up from the depths to infect the Earth. And are completely unmolested for literally hundreds of miles, when - again - the author has gone to great pains to describe some seriously grotesque stuff to show that, hey, they're pretty much at the epicenter of where Hell burst through into this world...but no biggie. They'll just bike on through. Ding ding, slower traffic stay right, faster traffic pass on the left, please.
It was frustrating to me how they never really explained how the Seasons work. Apparently there are Seasons of different beasts: bird, bat, bug, and dog - great idea! Had me hooked! But I guess, after one cycle of the seasons, it stops...? No more beasties? If so, how do they know how the cycle goes (Ashley explains very specifically in what order the beasts will appear,) and when to expect them? Is there a time gap between Seasons? If so, I submit that might have been something important to include.
I also was getting tired of the "he couldn't believe what he saw. It explained everything." But we as readers don't find out just what he found, or what he read, or what he discovered for several pages. One or two times can be an excellent tool for suspense, no doubt. It can draw in the reader, gluing us to the page so we can discover just WHAT that what was. But I personally felt that this tool was overused. It not only lost its keen edge, but finally started making me roll my eyes near the end.
Another thing that bugged me - and maybe I'm just unobservant and missed it? - is I don't remember seeing anywhere in the description of Abraham that he had no lower half, until they find his pelvis and legs in the other building. That to me is kind of a big thing that should probably be mentioned in the description of a character. I also found his rescuing of the main characters near the end of the book to be a little contrived.
Finally, the ending of the book felt rushed, as though the author had either lost interest in the book, was on a deadline, or was eager to get to another project. The "twist" at the ending was abrupt, coming out of nowhere, and to me, serving no purpose. It was unsatisfying.
All that being said, I am still giving the book three stars. I found the overall concept of the book very good, and the first chapter (included as a sneak peek in The Third Floor) was excellent, pulling me in and prompting me to buy the book for my Kindle, sight unseen. It was a very good concept (LOVED the idea of Butcher's Block,) but I felt the execution needed work.
