~ Synopsis ~
Tom Harding only wants the truth. But the truth is becoming more dangerous with every passing minute.
As a reporter for his high school newspaper, Tom Harding was tracking the best story of his life when, suddenly, his life turned very, very weird. He woke up one morning to find his house empty...his street empty...his whole town empty...empty except for an eerie, creeping fog and whatever creatures were slowly moving toward him through the fog.
Now Tom's once-ordinary world has become something out of a horror movie. How did it happen? Is it real? Is he dreaming? Has there been a zombie apocalypse? Has he died and gone to hell?
Tom is a good reporter. He knows how to look for answers but no one has ever covered a story like this before. With the fog closing in and the hungry creatures of the fog surrounding him, he has only a few hours to find out how he lost the world he knew. In this bizarre universe nothing is what it seems and everything, including Tom's life, hangs in the balance.
~ My Thoughts ~
My Rating: 4 / 5
Nightmare City is a psychological thriller that is full of twists and turns. There could not have been a better title for this novel! Tom's situation was a nightmare. I liked how I thought the story was going to be post-apocalyptic when it actually ended up being quite different. The premise is completely original to me and made for an exciting read.
Imagine waking up with no one around, strange creatures in a mysterious fog trying to eat you, and hearing your dead brother's voice speaking to you. It was downright chilling! Tom's memories aid him in putting the pieces together of what has happened. With each new memory, we gain more insight into who Tom is and what exactly is going on, which might or might not be completely different than what you expected.
Nightmare City is a book that I didn't want to put down and was completely goosebump-inducing. I'm looking forward to many more scary mysteries by Andrew Klavan!
