The writing just wasn't good. The author did a lot of telling rather than showing and sometimes he did both. The sentence structure was weird (multiple phrases like "it could be heard" rather than "he heard"), strange metaphors, and adjectives like "very", all the things you learn NOT to do in any creative writing class. In one sentence, he's listening to a barely audible purr, and in the next, he's running toward the roar. Is it a purr or a roar? They're not the same. The dialogue was just bad, and everyone sounded the same, very stilted.
At about 60% I considered giving up, but I was invested and wanted to know what happened, and having finished it I'm still not sure. So, the monsters came from the mine, but why? How? What happened in the mine to create them? Nothing is explained by the end of the story. Maybe a good editor, or anyone reading this before publication, could have helped this.
I'm giving this a generous two-star rating because there is a decent story here. It just wasn't a well-written one.
Into the middle of this moves two people who aren't willing to lie down and let this happen. One is Kevin, a teenage boy with a much beloved younger sister, and James, an FBI agent assigned to Heaven's Peak to discover why so many people have gone missing without a clue.
This is the story of a town overrun with horror and grotesque monsters. It is the story of two newcomers to the town both of whom are trying to solve the mystery of all the disappearances of locals over the past several years; most recently the sister of one of the newcomers. Separately the two newcomers investigate the situation until the main protagonist approaches the police with what he knows only to discover they are part of the horror. Only a one FBI agent listens to the boy and attempts to discover the mystery behind the town. What they find is not only terrifying but life threatening. If you like a book with lots of monsters and horrifying events then this is the Book for you.

There was an offer to download another story so I did. It too was incomplete, with the story simply coming to a stop in the middle of the action, suggesting the author makes a habit of it.
Readers like stories to be complete. If there is a sequel (or several sequels) then things can be left hanging to be dealt with later in the extended series. But to leave the end hanging in a standalone novel is simply irritating.
