Overview

THE DESERT by Bryon Morrigan

A Lost Platoon, a Dead Soldier, and a horrifying Journal...

During the opening engagements of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, a platoon of U.S. soldiers disappears. The Army attributes this disappearance to the "fog of war," and the subsequent investigation into the disappearance fails to locate even a single body or destroyed vehicle. Six years later, two soldiers on a routine search for "weapons of mass destruction" locate a cave with the remains of one of the missing soldiers and his journal. Unfortunately, Captain Henderson and Specialist Densler find out all too soon that what happened to the "Lost Platoon" is also happening to them. Trapped, they must confront this unspeakable menace, or risk suffering the same fate as that of the soldier in the cave.

"Bryon Morrigan's first novel, THE DESERT, is everything you hope to find in a first novel and then some. An original plot, solid characterization and a refreshing change of pace from the standard chains rattling in the attic. A fine mesh of horror and military drama that I can't recommend enough."

-James A. Moore, author of BLOOD RED & HARVEST MOON

"The Desert by Bryon Morrigan is a weird and wild novel of men againt monsters. In the grand tradition of James Cameron's Aliens, Bryon Morrigan gives a whipcrack tale of U.S. soldiers pitted against the very forces of Hell. It's fun, fast-paced, and deliciously creepy."

-Jonathan Maberry, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of GHOST ROAD BLUES & BAD MOON RISING

    Interesting

    This is a pretty fast paced book with a great creep factor. The author did a great job with creating an edge of your seat story. I loved Sargent Patel's character and would like to see more of him!

    Supernatural Military Thriller

    I think fans of horror, military, and suspense type novels would enjoy this book. It's fast paced, well thought out, and enjoyable. The characters are well-developed.

    Some might scoff at the "dumb guy in command, smart guy of lower rank" as being cliche, I think this happens in the military and civilian jobs more than people think. If you think that dynamic is cliched, I submit that you may be the dimwit boss.

    A Quick Read for the Weekend!

    I had a couple of books I was planning to read, but this was the one I couldn't put down. The action is well paced, and I enjoyed the SciFi feel. This Desert is a refreshing diversion from the saturated zombie market.
