My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a very enjoyable book, especially since I did not feel lost with a host of jargon often found in SF genre reads. I loved the horror element which felt akin to the type found in Lovecraft stories. My son (13) picked it up and read it through in one afternoon then asked for more. It has bits of other elements worked in that just work well and add to the overall read. The only shortcoming is that it feels a bit like it is missing a complete start-middle-end with frantic page-turning, almost as though it were a rough draft. That said, it was still enjoyable and worth checking out, if only to dabble in a new genre. This was a personal acquisition and not a donation in request for a review.
