My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lindsay Sterling's niece has gone missing in the New York underground and the cops do nothing except pass along a name. Jack Cole. Twenty years ago they were good buddies but horrors have changed them both. Lindsay lost her entire family except for her niece in a car accident, and Jack was held captive in New York's underbelly for nearly two years by demented sub-humans. It was a soul-sucking experience that's left him a shell of a man. He refuses to descend into that hell again, especially for a girl who's probably dead anyway. But when Lindsay is nearly killed there after going it alone, Jack feels compelled to save her skin. Jack navigates Lindsay through a strange territory, populated with the eccentric, the insane and the desperate. Each encounter takes them closer to Lindsay's niece but also closer into the clutches of the mad creatures that will enslave them
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the premise of a whole different world just below our feet. The story it's self was tight and well thought out with an interesting cast of characters. There was a good mix of romance, horror and suspense to keep me on the edge of my seat and I did not see the twist coming. And I have to say I got some very funny looks when I started shouting obscenities at my E-reader. This is the start of a series and I will be very interested to see where it will go.
I received this free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
