1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 11 Mar 2014
Only finished it because I felt I owed it to the author, due to liking '33 so much.

None of the characters are well written, least of all being Sasha and Leonid. Sasha is a typical teenage girl who basically falls in love with Hunter for no reason within 5 minutes of meeting him. She is hugely naive, irritatingly so, to the point that I wanted to scream at the book. She thinks that Hunter "needs" her for some reason. She believes every word that Leonid (who obviously just wants to get her alone) says to her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, 22 Nov 2013
I was a little concerned when I saw how many five star reviews are on this product. I thought they must be fake. How can an indie book be THAT good. But it really was good. There wasn't any fluff or waffling in the book which I find that some other authors use to pad up the number of pages in a book. There was constant action from the first chapter. You didn't know what was going to happen next. Only flaw I saw was about the love story, it seemed too obvious. But it didn't protract from the meat of the book. The monster was an interesting concept and it isn't very often that an author manages to convey the horror of the aftermath without it sounding like an attempt at a Saw movie… Read more
