I can see where the author was trying to go with this book, it was supposed to be an nail biting mix of horror, sci-fi, theological debate and moral compass. Sadly it fails. The school children speak in a depressingly cliched mix of old scottish, sixty year old lecturer and twelve year old wet dream veering wildly from having a deep understanding of Catholicism and it's nuances to over frisky teenagers unsure of themselves socially and sexually, it does not make sense although he has painstakingly made sure every type of cliche is available in the book from gay teens playing the hard man, religious types questioning their faith and a good helping of hardened American marine just wanting to live in the woods in peace. Yawn. The macabre blood fest it descends into does not sit well with the big reveal ending.
The ending is the only reason it gets 2 stars. Interesting twist on a much flogged horse.
