Note: I received a review copy of this book free from the author, A. O. Khalil. The review posted below is based on my personal thoughts while reading the book.

My thoughts:

While the apocalyptic plot is engaging, some things just bother me. First, the characters. There are just too many of them and it's difficult to go on reading when all I do is trying to remember who's who. Kept on flipping back the pages to check who they are and their connection to the main character, Jay. Then there's the unusual reaction of the characters to the invasion of the unknown creatures coming from the sinkholes. They tend to over analyze things, plan with a step-by-step procedure on what to do in every situation. I mean for me, in real life, everything would be spontaneous. I wouldn't have time to plan in front of those trying to kill me. So with this, I soon lost interest in reading further (DNF).

There are others who enjoyed reading the story, click here for positive reviews.

About the book:

They were just sinkholes, harmless sinkholes that were spreading like wildfire across the country. Then the disappearances started. A few people here and there then the entire army, gone in one night. Jay and Jule quickly find themselves thrown in the middle of a dangerous situation that only gets worse when something else comes that takes everyone by bloody surprise. 

As they make ready to leave to gather with the rest of the family, something comes out of the sinkholes and begins attacking and killing everyone in sight. Before they know it they are in the middle of a war with an unknown enemy and an unknown agenda. 

Will Jay and Jule survive their encounter or will they find themselves twenty-six feet under at the bottom of a sinkhole?
