Have you ever been reading a book that you just couldn’t put down? You’d cling to it while your eyes turned to lead and your head started to bob as sleep slowly wrapped itself around you?
This was one of those books!
With this book Robert McCammon has crafted a beautiful post-apocalyptic horror novel with a nice balance of good-vs-evil.
The characters were well thought out and believable to the point where I could empathize with each and everyone of them.
This is a must read that I have read a few times and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a horrifying masterpiece!
