Product Description

Product Description

Michael Evans is only in rural St. Davids to maintain a low profile after his time spent as a city cop ended in disaster. The town is perfect for him: isolated. A tiny population. Virtually no crime.

Until the night the strange canisters fall from the sky and the town priest starts killing people with his teeth. To Michael, the bloodbath looks like a murder case that the quiet town's two police officers can't possibly handle.

But this isn't just a crime scene.

And the priest is just the beginning...

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Action/Horror Story!! 30 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a really awesome read and I wanted to recommend it. I liked the detail in the characters, the solid gory set pieces felt fresh and imaginative but the horror always felt real. I enjoyed the local setting, lots of nice touches, and a little social commentary to boot. Look forward to reading the sequel. Plus I've lent it to a friend at work, she's halfway through and loves it so far. Nice!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good debut 11 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, and found it a very quick read. Griffiths' style is occasionally a bit overblown, but the characters are good and the handling of the multiple viewpoints is very assured. It's good to read a zombie novel set somewhere other than the USA, and I'll be reading the others in the series just to see what happens to the characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced, exciting, gory and brilliant 9 Aug 2013
By B Hess
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this novella and I can definitely see this being adapted into film.

Questions are asked from the very beginning about what is taking over the town and you are left guessing throughout. The ending leaves further unanswered questions setting the scene perfectly for "Shock" the second in the series.

You genuinely care about the main characters Rachel, Jason and Michael and the way the novel is written you can put yourself into their shoes.

Victor is extremely sinister from the moment he is introduced and he becomes more so as the novel goes on. (I can see Gary Oldman playing him).

Overall a fantastic read, leaving you wanting more. 100% recommend and I would love to see this on the big screen. Looking forward to reading "Shock"

4.0 out of 5 stars Page Turner 7 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was recommended by a friend since she knows I like my horrors :-)

The book quickly introduced several of the characters and the storyline is fast moving with the action starting up fairly quickly. It was almost impossible to put the book down!

It is well written and the characters are likeable - I found myself wanting certain characters to be okay at the end, as well as wishing a certain character would have a really painful death!

The only little annoyance for me was that although the whole book is based on the events of one day, the last chapter or 2 covered five days, and I didn't feel it had enough happening to cover 5 days but having discussed this with my friend, it has been suggested that this maybe because the characters are isolated and disorientated at the end in which case it does come across like that.

Overall, a very enjoyable read and I am very much looking forward to the next installment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Zombies in Wales 17 July 2013
St Davids and the surrounding coastline is in my opinion one of the most magical places on earth, an ideal setting for a horror story. This is what initially attracted me to 'Panic', a zombie tale with a local, rural flavour. I enjoyed the book, though, unlike some other reviewers, I didn't find it terribly scary - more 'Shaun of the Dead' than 'Dawn of the Dead'. I'm not sure if this was the author's intention, but it didn't spoil the book for me. The descriptions of St Davids and the surrounding countryside are not 100% accurate. For example, the real St Davids has no railway station, its cathedral has no spire, and there are no extensive forests nearby. At first I found this irritating, but soon came to accept that this is a mythical St Davids, which the author has moulded to his purposes, a bit like Philip Pullman's Oxford or John Cowper Powys's Glastonbury. The characters are well drawn and, although there is a certain predictability in all zombie stories, the plot has enough intrigue to keep one's interest to the end and beyond. This is the first book in a series, and, while it also stands alone as a novel, there are enough cliffhangers to arouse ones interest in what is to come. This is a good first novel. There are some typos and inaccuracies, but fewer than I have come to expect from most self-published ebooks. The book has a strong, attention grabbing opening, and an ending which leaves the reader wanting more. In between there are a few plodding, less stylish passages, but the overall effect is satisfying. Not quite sure what category it belongs in; is it a genuine horror story, or is it a spoof along the lines of the 'Aberystwyth Noir' series? Perhaps we should regard it as an essential educational book; come the zombie apocalypse you'll be glad you read it.
