A chilling masterpiece, 25 Feb. 2003
I first read this book as a kid and it frightened the pants off me. It's one of those rare books that actually make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. You experience all the cold dread, uncertainty and fear that the main character goes through.
I won't give away too much of the plot, but it revolves around a shipwreck excavation and the discovery of a large copper container. The fishing village near where it was found soon falls foul to the power of an ancient, demonic force and, quite literally, all hell breaks loose.
This is one of the best horror stories I have read for a long time. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys being scared.
