Ryan made it to the village with his brother in tow but are they actually safe?
More of those giant corkscrew things are in the town as well and that only means even more trouble.
Ryan has escaped the cottage he was in...barely...so will he survive the village?
Great series!! If you like zombies and a little LovecraftIan horror then you're in for a treat!!!
This second book was better than the first. Iain has this incredible ability to create intriguing characters and colourful landscapes for their apocalypse. It’s like a horror soap opera. Completely addictive.
This isn’t my favorite series, by any means, but that’s only because Iain has so many classics to choose from. Anyone new to Iain Rob Wright should start with this series and then move to Hell on Earth, follow it up with the Damian stories, and wrap it up with his one-off tales like “Animal Kingdom”, “Escape”, “Housemates”, “House Beneath the Bridge”.

Nothing particularly original going on here - Think the Walking Dead meets John Carpenter's The Thing and you'll have an idea what to expect. Zombie type creatures with tentacles wandering around trying to infect a ragtag group of survivors as they try to escape the village.
Why the low rating? First, I don't see the need to take the Lord's name in vain and it happens multiple times here. Also the ending cliffhanger was absolutely horrific. I thought the previous one was bad but this topped it, and not in a good way. It's been a long time since a book ending made me angry but this one achieved it. Some of you reading this may think that since it's a series, I should have expected this. Perhaps, but there are much better ways to close a book and have your main story continue, rather then doing it in the middle of an action scene (for the second time now) and forcing your reader to purchase the next one to get any kind of closure. This guy obviously has talent, and I may try something else of his in the future, but am saying goodbye to this series.

I am not surprised at all!
The story continues and we meet a whole bunch of new people. Several of which I think are brilliant!
There was so much action and so much horror, which is always a bonus!
SPOLIER! (Sort of)
“A beast. An unholy behemoth. Run, lad, run.”
Just when you think it's not going to get any worse something bigger and more horrific comes along 😁
5* without a doubt!
Not sure I can wait too long for the next instalment 😬
There are a few redeeming qualities - the new characters are so likeable, the sense of danger was moreso in this book than its predecessor, but unfortunately that's where my positives for this book come to an end.
This book had the opportunity to be amazing but for me, fell short. I am not a fan of plot armour and this book was full of it from all angles, at the end of the book during what should have been the climax of conflict, the tension was taken away due to plot armour, you knew how it would end before reading.
I also couldn't see past the inconsistencies with the writing. If you're going to phonetically write a Scottish accent, keep it up through all dialogue in the book rather than inserting it here and there, almost as if to remind the reader that there's a British/Scottish divide.
My last qualm with this book, but by far the one that annoyed me the most was the drastic difference in the main characters between the last book in the series and this one. I'm not adverse to character changing and evolving, but this was so sudden it came across as unrealistic and left me hating the main characters and wanting to know more about the new, secondary characters that were introduced. Now, maybe this was a good thing, depending on how you look at it. But I went into this book so excited for more of the previous book and to see where Aaron, Ryan and Tom ended up. But by the end I couldn't care.
I wanted to like this book as much as the last, but this just fell so short of what I expected.
