Idris Sinclair lives a rather typical life; helping his family run their cherished diner. However, all the normalness he knows in life is about to go straight out the window when he happens to break into an abandoned van in the restaurant’s parking lot. He discovers a small weapon’s stockpile and various files, involving affairs foreign to him.
As night begins to set in, the family is involved in one of our government’s most heinous and dastardly secrets involving entities, not of this world.
It walks among us. It could be anyone—or anything. Suspect everyone you know, or you pass on the street. There is nowhere where you are safe. Run all you want; it will only make you taste more delicious to it.
It’s too late. It already knows where you are.
|Much too short! That’s what I think about this story. There’s so much here that we are given in terms of information, and it leaves us so many answers. What exactly are these creatures? Why are there people watching them? What is going to happen to the boys? Etc, etc. McCartney starts off with a lot of atmosphere, letting us get connected to the characters, and then, pulls the rug out from beneath us during the meatiest part of the story.
I really want to learn more about this world! I hope that McCartney has more plans to dive into this world in the future. It might be short, but it packs a punch, and I highly recommend this to any avid reader.
No spoiler alert today, because this is just too short, and I’ve pretty much said what I wanted to in the Goodreads review above. Seriously. Go check this read out. I got my copy through InstaFreebie, but I cannot state enough that I loved this read. Go find it. Check it out. Trust me, you’ll enjoy it, and want more.
