Overview

WELCOME TO SAFE HAVEN, POPULATION 907...

Nestled in the woods of Wisconsin, Safe Haven is miles from everything. With one road in and out, this is a town so peaceful it has never needed a full-time police force. Until now...

A helicopter has crashed on the outskirts of town and something terrible has been unleashed. A classified secret weapon programmed to kill anything that stands in its way. Now it's headed for the nearest lights to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate.

Soon all phone lines are dead and the road is blocked. Safe Haven's only chance for survival rests on the shoulders of an aging county sheriff. And as the body count rises, the sheriff realizes something even more terrifying - maybe death hasn't come to his little town by accident...

WELCOME TO SAFE HAVEN, POPULATION 907... 906... 905...

    I almost gave up on this book honestly. By page 54 I was ready

    I almost gave up on this book honestly. By page 54 I was ready to throw it across the room. Thankfully I didn’t give up on it and it improved. At the beginning, there was not enough descriptions in the murder scenes and I just could not get a good enough picture in my head. I really needed that imagery to help the story but it was just not there. I got very annoyed, hence feeling of wanting to throw the book. The suspense was still there but only because the scenes kept changing right at cliffhangers, much like a tv show.

    Eventually the book got better as the scenes finally had more details and I could get excited about the story. By the end, I could not put the book down. The plot near the end was so enticing and climatic. I was left with one question though that was pretty relevent to the plot. I prefer a book have a well rounded ending, especially if not part of a series. Not answering all the questions is fine when there are other books to come but this book felt like it had a set ending and no sequel. That unanswered question still annoys me.

    There was an interesting line within the book that I liked thinking about. “Aging is the body’s deliberate and systematic betrayal of the soul.” I enjoyed this because if you think about it, we all age differently. Usually those with very good lives and good souls age slower but those with hardships and many battle scars on their souls age a lot faster.

    I only give the book 2.5 out of 5 stars because a good portion of the book really could have been improved upon. Imagery is important to a novel and what sets books apart from television, and in horror, you need really good imagery to cause fear in your readers. This book had issues with that in at least the first 60 pages of the book.
