This tale was so spooky and Lovecraftian- any Horror Lover will fly through this! I was lucky enough to receive The Dead Shift, by John Llewellyn Probert, through LibraryThing.com I'd like to have this on my bookshelf, but I won the ebook. I'll have to check into this one in it's physical form. The story is about things from the lower bowels of Hell wanting to press into our dimension. How do they do it? By taunting us simple mortals on the nearest plane of existence. Through the blood-filled pages of a book, and sheer, evil determination! Tell me if you've heard this one before: A man is brought to a UK Emergency Room, suffering a self-inflicted injury. He uses his blood to create a diagram onto the floor of his side room that opens and forces him into another dimension while other- unworldly things, for lack of a better word, escape into ours - transforming the hospital into a doorway, and feeding ground for the hellish & grotesque! No? You haven't heard that before? LOL I love monsters, creatures undefined and deadly, man-eating and morphing plants! This ebook was a true nightmare. Dead Shift takes place in Northcote Hospital, a pretend facility, maybe South England. It started out describing a man on a bloody mission and how he found the mission, and it's dark and ends terribly for everyone nearby... *For the full review: http://tinyurl.com/jub7pc3 **eBook provided by LibraryThing.com, for an honest review.
Dead Shift by John Llewellyn Probert is a horribly good book. LOL It has the horror, the dry humor and satire, and action to keep it a fun and exciting read. There is never a dull moment. Although it is a horror book, and meant to be taken as such, it has a lot of low key humor in it, which I enjoyed. Three friends take on stopping the end of the world. I was a night shift nurse for twenty years and that is hell enough but I never had a patient trying to open a portal to hell before, in the hospital no less. Very entertaining and creative characters and great plot. Enjoyed it greatly. Won this book from LibraryThing.
