YA Book Bound Tours was nice enough to include me on this blog tour!
I probably wouldn't have picked this book up if I hadn't heard about it from them. I'm so glad I had the chance to read it! It was crazy suspenseful. I loved how the story unfolded. I thought the chances of a high school student actually experiencing all of this were pretty slim but it was still fun to read.
The reason for his weird day was so cool. It made so much sense but I still didn't see it coming. I look forward to reading Andrew Klavan's other books. They've been on my radar for a while but I haven't gotten to them yet. I should change that!
This book is good for guys and reluctant readers. It's a quick read and very engaging.
What should have been an ordinary morning is about to spiral into a day of unrelenting terror.
As a reporter for his high school newspaper, Tom is always on the lookout for an offbeat story. But from the moment he woke up this morning, his own life has been more bizarre than any headline could ever tell.
The streets of his town are suddenly empty and silent. A strange fog has drifted in from the sea and hangs over everything. And something is moving in that fog. Something evil. Something hungry. Closing in on Tom.
Tom's terrified girlfriend Marie says the answers lie at the Santa Maria Monastery, a haunted ruin standing amidst a forest blackened by wildfire. But can he trust her? A voice that seems to be coming from beyond the grave is warning him that nothing is what it seems. "Only one thing is certain: with his world collapsing around him, Tom has only a few hours to recover the life he knew - before he, too, is lost forever in this nightmare city."
