Length: 337 pages
My Rating 7/10
As a first time reader of Tim Lebbon, I was cautious as always with a new author, unsure if I would like the writing style and story line. Not to mention that the Amazon description was pretty vague. I was pleasantly surprised.
You follow the main character, Tom, on his journey to find the grave of his ten-year-dead son, Steven. He was killed in an Army “training accident”. Little does Tom know, digging up old graves also digs up secrets, unknowns, and unimaginable horrors. Natasha is a character that, by human nature, you want to dislike, but you cannot help but sympathize with the 10-year-old girl-turned-monster.
The action begins fairly quickly in, and it’s quite the thrill ride as you find out secrets that the British Royal Army attempted to cover up from a secret facility called Porton Down, and the horrors unleashed by digging up on single mass grave.
