What I Thought:

A post-apocalyptic horror that really spooked me...that's what Sparrow Rock was!

I was already a fan of Nate's work so I was excited to be able to read this one. The premise of the book was something that yes, we've seen before but it was original in the writing. Nate Kenyon has a way of spinning tales that really freak you out, and if you were a kid, these are things that would haunt your nightmares.

It totally scared me and made me think all at one time. (the end of the world type books and movies tend to make me do that LOL) Anyway, it was one of those books that made you think you couldn't trust anyone and nothing is as it seems.

If you are fan of "end-of-the-world" type stories then you should really check this one out. It's different and will make your heart pound!

Book Summary:
(from Dorchester Pub site)

They were just a group of high school kids looking for a place to party. They didn’t know the end of the world was coming. Now, alone and trapped belowground in a state-of-the-art bomb shelter, they are being stalked—and the creatures that come for them through the dirt and ash are like nothing anyone has ever seen before. There is a new ruling life-form on earth, and these six humans are the only remaining prey.

  1. Why thank you Kris! I'm so glad you liked the read. It's by far my own favorite book I've done, and if things go well, we'll be seeing it on the big screen someday too. I hope all your readers give it a try.
