This is the story of Valentine (Val). Newly released from prison, he has to cope with life on the outside and his mother near death from cancer. Ever since he got back he has been hearing a hum that gets worse as he gets nearer an old mine, and why does he keep sleepwalking and waking up in the desert? When bodies start turning up horribly mangled near his trailer he knows he has to get to the bottom of things. His journey to find the truth will turn out to be far more horrifying than he could ever have imagined.
I liked this. It was a different sort of
alien story with a shot of horror laced through it. It was fast paced
and action packed. The characters were solid and the storyline was tight
and tense. It turned many of the alien myths upside down and I liked
that the author was unafraid to challenge things. This was a well
rounded and well written debut story from a promising new writer.
