So in a small, isolated town in Arizona, it starts raining after a very long time, and a sinkhole suddenly opens up, and weird demon things pop out of it and start killing/disappearing the townspeople in brutal ways. There are only a handful of survivors--a couple of cops and kids--who have to figure out why the demons arrived and how to send them back before it's too late!
Eh...big eh from me. This story is okay, but nothing special. Characters...okay, but nothing especially unexpected. The writing is good enough, and there are some scares, but the plot and the story behind the monsters? Big eh. The way it was laid out was just exposition dumps and flashbacks rather than any interesting use of the narrative itself. And the way the monsters were actually defeated (I don't wanna spoil too much, but it was a "power of innocence/goodness" type thing) struck me as kind of smarmy and saccharine. But, whatever. Not the worst thing I've ever bought.
