Synopsis: (from the back cover): How do you go on living when you’re already dead?
The world has ended, yet a few places still cling to life, dragging out their final, dwindling moments until the last second. The United Kingdom is one of those places still left alive, but it is only a matter of time before it too is wiped from the face of the earth.
The Tar is coming, covering every inch of the globe. There is no escape.
It means the clock is ticking for Finn, who needs to find the monster that murdered his sister. The world might be over, but vengeance never dies
What would you do if you knew the world was going to end? Would you run and hide? Would you wait in misery for death to take you over with your family? Or would you fulfill a promise? Finn decides he needs to fulfill a promise, and he must do it before the vile, black death reaches him.
To him it doesn’t matter that everyone will soon die, he is going to kill the twisted bastard that beat his baby sister to death. He will fulfill this promise without remorse or mercy. He wants to look the man in the eye and let him know who he is and why he is killing him. However, what he isn’t expecting is to become someone’s savior. He’s been a killer for so long the word “savior” isn’t one he’d ever associate with himself. Though the end of the world is coming, his last act will be one of valor… or will it?
Iain Rob Wright has done it again. He has proven he deserves to be among the best in horror writers and had done so with a flair for the strange and unusual. This novel had my emotion scattered from fear, heartache, and a touch of humor. TAR is a fantastic book that has a touch of something for everyone.
While not a long book, Tar checks in at approximately 230 pages, this story really packs a punch with regard to action and suspense. Finn is desperate to hunt down his sister’s murderer and avenge her death but doesn’t have the luxury of time as the Tar creeps ever closer. As usual in a story such as this if that weren’t bad enough, there is also the element of the other survivors functioning as the “wild card” element.
This was a really quick read and of course, I pretty much adore anything that IRW writes. A few incidental characters seemed eerily similar to other novels, but for me that added more to the story. It’s not uncommon to have cameos of characters from his other books in the IRW created universe, why would this book be any different? It’s sort of like little “Easter Eggs” for loyal readers.
The short stories were an added bonus. Will definitely have to check them out. Thx for sharing!! Till next time...
From start to finish I have been glued to this story, and as with all this authors books I am left thinking of it for days after. The characters in this book are really well fleshed out and I fell for Minty right away. Finn, it turns out, is really a great man. Sure he was conflicted in life, but to some extent arn't we all.
Thanks again for another awesome read.
