Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Stoker-winner Kenyon shambles through postapocalyptic horror in this awkward mélange of teen angst drama and implausible post-nuclear war ecological terror. Pete, whose troubled past is revealed in a series of clichéd anecdotes, narrates the story of a small group of high school students who survive a sudden and largely unexplained catastrophic nuclear war thanks to what at first seems to be pure luck but later proves to be something darker. The teens soon realize that survival involves not just waiting out the radioactive fallout but overcoming the profound, possibly deliberate ecological changes it incurs, including undead rats and man-eating ants. Kenyon invokes science gone horribly wrong without stooping to mere plausibility, spicing his tale with a secret all-powerful crypto-fascist conspiracy spanning generations. The result is a serviceable game of Last Man Standing, played out with a cast of forgettable stock characters. (May)

    Pleasantly Horrifying

    Nate Kenyon's SPARROW ROCK grips readers from the very beginning and throws them into the mix of this post-apocalyptic scene with six teenagers, who supposedly lucked out being in a bomb shelter when the world exploded around them. The horror is spine-tingling and creepy with deadly engineered insects rising out of the ash. SPARROW ROCK is definitely not for the faint of heart. Told through Pete's view point, the novels entwines the reader into the conspiracy of why this is happening to these teenagers. The novel is reminiscent of Stephen King's work as well as a psychological play on par with Golding's LORD OF THE FLIES. Mr. Kenyon had me at the very beginning of the novel, and I had a hard time putting it down from the first sentence on. At times, SPARROW ROCK bordered upon the gross and disgusting, and I loved every minute of it. It's definitely a horror novel worth reading, and I look forward to reading more of Mr. Kenyon's work in the future.

    exciting post nuclear thriller

    This is an exciting post nuclear thriller that grips readers once Dan realizes what occurred and shuts the hatch. The story line is fast-paced especially as a diabolical sinister adversary leaves the teens distrustful of one another as they are not immune to death. Although the pack is stereotypical until a late twist spins two of them from the mold, fans will enjoy Nate Kenyon's taut teen thriller.

    I loved it

    This book drew me in from the start. I stayed up late to finsish it. It had an orignal plot. I wanted to know what was happening to the people, it had twists, turns, humor, horror. It kept me up at night, READ this book. If you love the horrow genre, you will love Nate Kenyon.
