A wild ride featuring American muscle cars, some cosmic horror action, tentacles and a magic 8 ball. Hold on tight!
A man named Seb makes his getaway from a robbery gone bad. He’s bleeding out and doesn’t think he’s going to last long. Next thing he knows, he wakes up in a sketchy cabin in the desert, amidst a group of sketchy people, who are telling him he will never leave that place again. They say he’s trapped. They say he can’t escape. Ever. Are they right? You’ll have to read this to find out!
The mash-up of genres in this novella really throws the reader for a loop. You’re never quite sure what’s going to happen next. In that respect, it was a fun read. Problem is, I found myself not caring much for anyone, and other than Seb, I didn’t get a real feel for the other people at all. Perhaps that was for the best, considering?
I liked the entire concept here, there was just something I can’t quite put my finger on, that didn’t connect with me. It could be just me, and the whole “trying to concentrate during a pandemic” thing, I’d be the first to admit it. It was a quick, fun read nonetheless, and if you’re looking for a fast paced good time in a bad-ass Dodge Charger, this is the read for you!
