A new breed...a new evil...

Hidden deep beneath its landfill lair of trash and filth, a strange new organism has come to life. When an accidental fire drives it out, the mysterious creature escapes across the drought-blasted Kansas prairie and finds the home of elderly hoarder Anna Grish. In desperate need of shelter, it burrows in, concealed amidst the squalor and mess.

When Adult Protective Services force Anna to vacate her junk-riddled home, she moves in with her son and his family. But there is something wrong with Anna, something more than her declining mental condition and severe hoarding disorder. Something sinister has taken hold of her, and it's not only getting stronger, it's spreading.

Amidst the wide-open Kansas plains, with endless blue sky above and flat, open vista stretching from one horizon to the next, there is nowhere to hide from...THE HOARD.

Editorial Reviews

Forward Reviews
"Ryker’s well-developed writing style produces a smoothly paced, page-turning novel that ratchets up the tension in all the right places."
Greg F. Gifune
"The Hoard is the most harrowing, unsettling and wildly original novel of horror and suspense I have read in a very long time. Alan Ryker is a bold new voice and a force to be reckoned with, and The Hoard is only the beginning."
