Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed Mr. Clark's book. Fast-moving and filled with memorable scenes of horrific violence.
After the earth inexplicably begins to heat up, natural catastrophes change the face of the world. A small band of young people must make their way in the ruins, struggling to find food and avoiding capture by cannibalistic tribes.
This is a very British novel, but reminded me much of Stephen King's _The Stand_ and Robert McCammon's _Swan Song_, two similar novels about the end of the world. Scenes of a flooded London are especially memorable. Highly recommended!

I honestly couldn't put this book down! Simon Clark has managed to cram more blood, gore and nastiness into this book than any other horror novel I've read. The only points on which it falls down are the copious amounts of sex the main character has (which gets tedious) and the flatness of the characters, but let's face it, when has anyone ever read a horror novel for the rich and scintillating dialogue? If you want a novel filled with proper horror that has you hiding under the covers, read King Blood. Not for those with weak stomachs!

I found the first third of this book really difficult to get through. It is perhaps one of the nastiest books I've read for a while, not just from the depictions of insane cruelty and violence, but because of the earnest nature of the writing. Simon Clark does not flinch for one moment and keeps your eyes open all the way.

Yet get through the often nauseas barrier of the first act, and there is a delightful apocalyptic tale that is up there with Wyndham's Triffids and War of the Worlds. Brilliance and blood in equal measures!
