Infested by C.M. Forest
My thanks to the author for a copy to review for my blog.
Finished it last night, what a rollercoaster ride of emotions!!
The author throws you right in it from the start, we find Olivia waking up on her bedroom floor in a pool of vomit, the power is out and there's a massive storm outside. Her husband is missing, she hears cries and strange sounds coming from outside her apartment. She checks her mobile, no signal plus no Wi-Fi but of course, the power is out. What's that scratching sound coming from the air vent?
"Infested" is one hell of a creepy novel it has all the ingredients of a great horror story, it has suspense, action (plenty of it), monsters (not the hellish kind) and gore.
I loved the pacing it was perfect, with some action, then a bit of rest to recover from what has just happened, and believe me they need it!!.
It was a very creepy read that had me totally engrossed. Highly recommended!!.
Oh... Olivia finally finds her husband but not as she expects...
