It looked like another ordinary day in Los AngelesThen night came….Evil as old as the centuries has descended upon the City of Angels—it comes as a kiss from the terrifying but seductive immortals. Slowly at first, then by the legions, the ravenous undead choke Los Angeles with bloodthirsty determination—and the hordes of monstrous victims steadily mount each night.High above glitter city a deadly contest begins. In the decaying castle of a long-dead screen idol, the few remaining human survivors prepare to face the Prince of Evil and his satanic disciples. Whilst the very forces of nature are called into play, isolating the city from the rest of the world and leaving it at the mercy of the blood-hungry vultures of the night….
Theirs is a lust that can never be satisfied…
Another excellent tale from Robert R. McCammon.
In this tale of dread, McCammon introduces us to an L.A. that has been infested with some nasty, blood-thirsty vampires.
As with most of McCammon’s works I found the plot believable and well thought out. His characters were penned well and the element of horror was presented well throughout the entire novel.
I was chilled and thrilled aplenty with this book.
This was a page turner for me and I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of vampire stories.
In a wasteland born of rage and fear, populated by monstrous creatures and marauding armies, earth’s last survivors have been drawn into the final battle between good and evil, that will decide the fate of humanity: Sister, who discovers a strange and transformative glass artifact in the destroyed Manhattan streets . . . Joshua Hutchins, the pro wrestler who takes refuge from the nuclear fallout at a Nebraska gas station . . . And Swan, a young girl possessing special powers, who travels alongside Josh to a Missouri town where healing and recovery can begin with Swan’s gifts. But the ancient force behind earth’s devastation is scouring the walking wounded for recruits for its relentless army, beginning with Swan herself. . . .
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!
