Publisher's Summary

An all-new epic tale of terror and redemption set in the hinterlands of midcentury New Mexico from the acclaimed author of The Troop - which Stephen King raved "scared the hell out of me and I couldn't put it down...old-school horror at its best."
From electrifying horror author Nick Cutter comes a haunting new novel, reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian and Stephen King's It, in which a trio of mismatched mercenaries is hired by a young woman for a deceptively simple task: check in on her nephew, who may have been taken against his will to a remote New Mexico backwoods settlement called Little Heaven. Shortly after they arrive, things begin to turn ominous. Stirrings in the woods and over the treetops - the brooding shape of a monolith known as the Black Rock casts its terrible pall. Paranoia and distrust grips the settlement. The escape routes are gradually cut off as events spiral towards madness. Hell - or the closest thing to it - invades Little Heaven. The remaining occupants are forced to take a stand and fight back, but whatever has cast its dark eye on Little Heaven is now marshaling its powers...and it wants them all.

A FACE LIKE A DIME'S WORTH OF DOG MEAT

SHE FELT LIKE DAY OLD DOG SH--
I enjoyed Nick's THE TROOP and was looking for something else by him. When this hit the top 50 in horror and had good reviews and a good rating (4.3), I was excited to get it. This just did not CUT it with me. Every single sentence is an attempt to attack your senses with scariness. Everything is dark, dead looking, bloody, etc. A mirror is not a mirror, it is a fish eye mirror. On top of that NC forces in all these side stories, that really don't fit the story that well. The story about the kid in New Mexico that gets eaten by an Anaconda. The scorpion bit. The blind baby with no arms. The army story about transporting dead bodies, just to explain a soggy ground. All of these stories might be interesting if the fit the story better, but they seem to be thrown in willy nilly.

One reviewer tells you not to write reviews if you are overly happy or overly unhappy. I disagree, I always look for both extremes to see why. If the unhappy are that way because of bad narration, volume problems, flowery language or long boring periods, I want to avoid that book. On the other if they are upset about the foul language, sex or gore, I might be sold for the same reason they are not sold. I have learned to avoid unknown authors who have paid people to write reviews. If there is one, there are usually six or more. These usually have high ratings and are usually poorly written books. Middle of the road reviews usually throw me off more than anything else. I find I usually love a book or hate a book, as I hate to waste my time.

Nick Cutter is by far my favorite horror writer

absolutely loved this story, just like I loved all his novels. if I had to classify Nick Cutters books, I would classify them as extreme tragic psychological horror.. he sure knows how to draw you in and get you emotionally invested in the characters, and then kick you right in the nutsack of your heart..
