Parasite:Blood Oath by Ian Woodhead

This is the story of Dan and Alison. One night they decide to to sneak into the caves where they work. Once there they stumble on some old bones. Bones with unusual teeth formations. Their boss, seeing pound signs flash in front of his eyes, calls some archaeologists. Unbeknownst to all of them a terrible horror has been unleashed on their village - and it is out for vengeance.

This was simply fantastic. It was a step backwards in a sense for Ian as it harks back to his writing before Zombie Armageddon, but much more polished and better written. It was a truly scary read and no punches were pulled. It belted along and the conclusion left me gasping for more. I understand there IS to be a sequel, and I certainly cannot wait!

  1. Hmm? Thanks, Kim. It sounds like something right up an alley. I'll have to take a look at this. I've yet to read anything from this author. Perhaps this will be the first.
