More than six thousand gates to Hades are opened on Earth and our planet is suddenly over-run by vicious marauding demons. It’s literally Hell on Earth in this superb British horror novel.
Taking a page from old 1970’s disaster movies, the book zeroes in on a cast of characters who are clearly set up to be our heroes and heroines in this battle for humanity. But here the narrative takes an interesting twist, as very early on it starts killing off some of these characters. We’ve been led to believe that they are our protagonists, but such is the chaos of war that not even they are safe. Nothing is.
The violence and bloodshed is handled expertly – making one wince, while never being too gory – and the story moves along with the propulsion of an adventure tale. It’s the first of a series about the war between man and demon and I will certainly be back for seconds.
My debut novel, THE WANNABES – which has been out of print for a little while – is now available for free. A supernatural thriller of beautiful actresses and deadly ambition in London town, it’s well worth your time. You can get your copy here!
