A relentless alien bounty hunter encloses a Texas town under a dome to isolate, hunt, and kill its prey in "the ultimate horror novel" (The Philadelphia Inquirer).
Ever since the copper mine closed, the West Texas desert hellholes of Inferno and Bordertown have been slowly dying. Snake River isn't the only thing that divides them. Racism, gang wars, and anti-Mexican sentiment have turned the sun-scorched flatlands into a powder keg. If anything can unite them for now, at least in awe and wonder, it's the UFO that comes soaring out of the clouds like a flaming locomotive.
In the wake of the crash, a young alien named Daufin has arrived, too. A fugitive who has taken the form of a human, she knows the terror that awaits the inhabitants of this planet - because it is looking for her.
When Stinger, the monstrous alien bounty hunter, arrives, it's with a destructive fury and a devious plan to find Daufin - by entombing the residents in an impenetrable and inescapable dome. A relentless killing machine, Stinger has an infinite capacity for death and destruction. And over the next twenty-four hours, this town is going to bleed and burn. Now, the few remaining survivors must come together to protect Daufin, themselves, and the world beyond from total annihilation.
From the New York Times best-selling and Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Swan Song, Stingerwas called "one of the best suspense novels of recent years" by the Science Fiction Chronicle.

First 40% of book is essentially an introduction familiarizing reader with the place and with multiple characters. There are long parts describing in a big detail a layout of two small towns separated by the river and, more importantly, by demographics of inhabitants. I could not keep track of all the streets and kept asking myself why, if they were supposed to be so important, not to simply draw a map? Then I got introduced to many protagonists several of them the members of two competing youth gangs; the kids of Mexican origin and white kids. Again, I got lost in who is who and the problems of the young people and other characters felt like “carbon –copied“ from other books. Then, finally, aliens invade and there are several bloody and gory encounters between them and local human population. The first one or two of them were interesting but repeated for the 10-th and 20-th time in different variations they became boring (and made me skipping paragraph again). In the last 10% of the book the new things start happening but by then I was so tired I could not get involved in any of the action. On top of that there are several annoying inconsistencies in psychological makeup and in behavior of both; humans and aliens.
It was just a two star reading experience for me but I believe this book may be much more appealing to the fans of gory horror and/or zombies’-like scenes. As for me, I do not give up on this author, I just need to choose other book of his (the one that is more like “Boys Live”, “Gone South”, “Speaks the Nightbird” or even “Mystery Walk”).
