ISIS & Gangs = Good Guys? Military = Idiots? WTF!?

Could have been great. Should have been great.

If only ISIS and street thug gangs weren't the good guys, the military weren't a bunch of bumbling idiots and the rest of thd characters weren't all as shallow as a kiddy pool while they ran around spouting the most corny one-liners ever regurgitated from already corny Hollywood movies.

Bold Concept. Not many serious writers willing to take something like this on, I'll give it that much. But come really? ISIS are secretly heroes they're just misunderstood? It's OK for them to commit atrocities because so did Britain hundreds of years ago? People are smart enough to figure out our own politics without having it spoon fed to us in, of all things, horror fiction. Just wish the focus here could have been more on telling a good story.

Don't waste your time.

Thoroughly enjoyable!

When strange black stones appear all over the word, nobody knows what to make of them or how they came to be. But then these stones become something of a gateway and horrible things start coming out! What can people do against these Demons? This book follows certain people, a reporter and his camera woman, an army personnel, a coast guard captain and an ex rock star, and their struggle to stay alive.

I absolutely devoured this book!! For me anyway, the measure of a great book is one that grabs you from the first page and envelops you in the world the author created, it's one where you forget your own life and struggles and become part of the world. This is one of those books. Despite this being one hell of a world (literally ;)) I was sucked in and didn't want to leave. It's a brutal, disturbing, devastating and evil world but incredibly written and executed.

The characters were all well written and developed, and despite there being quite a few of them, I grew to love all. As per usual though, the author rips your heart out and stomps on it when it comes to his characters!! I thoroughly enjoyed each of their journeys and can't wait to see more from them.

In all this is an amazing Apocalyptic book and I need book 2 yesterday!! ;) Filled to the brim with action, adventure, Demons, Angels, Good vs Evil, deception, heroics and everything you could possibly want in a great read. This is a must read. This isn't my first, nor will it be my last book by this author. He has captured my attention with his talent and I can highly recommend.

Nigel Patterson has such an easy to listen to voice and made this a book that was effortless to listen to. He has a variety of tones and cadences that brought the book alive. He is a narrator that I need to check out more of his work.

*I received this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*
