Good Tuesday all , hope you are all having a great week so far. Today we are delving into a new book by Mike Evans. Its the second book in The Uninvited series . Let me introduce you to THE STRANGER.
He made everyone think he was dead. The Police told everyone, that it was safe again. Safe to go outside, safe to lead a normal life. The problem? They were all wrong! The Stranger is back with a thirst for blood, and a sick, twisted desire to kill, torture and maim. If you thought book one was gruesome, you were sadly mistaken. Book 2 is a high-octane extreme horror thriller like you have not read before. Very few boundaries were left untouched. The one question, can the Stranger be stopped finally?
I must admit Mike Evans is becoming one of my favourite horror authors . The book starts off with some of the stranger's back story. We learn about him as a child and how he becomes what he is now . Then from there on in the story just keeps getting better and may I say creepier . Like always the first couple of chapters had me hooked and creeped out at the same time . I will never ever go near a pig pen ever again or turn my back in a stock trailer ever again. The stranger is unstoppable and has such a thirst for blood its unbelievable . He is one twisted monster and as the body count piles up you will wonder if they will ever catch him .
Who knew that Mike could take his characters to an even gorier place but he does in this book . The Stranger / Matt Hardin. He is on a killing spree and no one is safe . He has truly cracked and will stop at nothing to keep on killing, He is evil incarnate and seems to get even more unstable . He thinks he is basically indestructible and is taunting the police . He wants one agent to come and get him and along comes Jack Grey the FBI agent that is fighting demons of his past and the only one who seems to be able to get him. What I like is that the characters have both good and bad qualities in them . You almost start to care for the stranger when you see him as a child but honestly that feeling goes away very quickly .
I must say that this book is not for the faint of heart, its a gory blood bath that will keep you on the edge of your seat . I had a few sleepless nights after reading. It is a gory bloodbath that will keep you reading all night long . The characters will grab at you and make you feel for them and then devastate you at the same time. I will say you should read book one in the series to get into the strangers mind before starting book 2. This book gave me a book hangover , I read it all in one evening and cursed the author the whole time . So if you want a gore filled thrill ride that will take you to hell and back this is the book for you . So check out THE STRANGER you will not be disappointed
