Lester Brooks, a somewhat sheltered African-American high-school graduate, begins the long hot drive from Missouri to Texas with his temperamental ex-girlfriend, Teri. There the two will begin their freshman term at the University of Houston. But when miles and miles of road construction divert them from their planned course, they find themselves roaming the Great Plains of Texas in the darkness of night with not a single town in sight.
Without warning, Lester strikes something in the road that nearly flips the car over and leaves Teri injured and unconscious. Shaken, Lester tends her wounds as best he can, then seeks whatever he hit... only to be attacked by a terrifying preternatural creature. Barely managing to escape, Lester drives his sputtering car to the small town of Lee. But the citizens there wave off his tales of monsters as they set about healing Teri and repairing his car. Forced to linger, Lester soon intuits that all is not as it seems in the quaint little town. He expects to spend a few miserable days being subjected to the usual small-town suspicion. Instead he finds himself preyed upon by frightening creatures, loses his heart to a woman with dark secrets and finds himself thrust into the role of reluctant hero.

The Suirlang Chronicles: Lee is a nicely flowing, suspenseful horror novel. It follows Lester, the main protagonist, as he journeys long distance with his ex-girlfriend Teri from their hometown to a college in the state of Texas. Along the way, he manages to get into a bad car accident, leaving Lester questioning his beliefs in reality and childhood fairy tales, while putting his passenger and himself in a very precarious situation in the small town of Lee. Lester and Teri stay in Lee while his car is being repaired and discovers the town and townspeople preparing for a huge religious gathering. But things do not seem as happy and welcoming as they appear. During their stay, Lester befriends Megan, the preacher's daughter who caused his accident, and learns the horrible secret and truth about Suirlangs and the townspeople of Lee. Lester needs to figure out how to survive against these creatures and save who he can.
This book is about two teenagers on their way to college when their car breaks down in the small Texas town of Lee. They soon learn Lee has a deadly little secret. The two must now fight for their life. I would definitely give this book a solid 4 out of 5 stars. The pros is the author grabs your attention from the prologue to the very end. The book is a bit on the longer side at over 400 pages but the storyline is so full and action packet that it will not fill that it is that long. The characters a full and complex. There is plenty of action and even quite a bit of horror with a dash of gore. The con not cons since to me I only had one issue and that is things were not explained enough for me so I was left with questions. Such as where did the suirlangs actually come from... we are given some history but not enough... how are they made.... how are the killed... So would I recommend this books yes, it will grab you attention and keep it. It’s got lots of action, but you like me might be left with questions.... but that could be done on purpose to open this up for a series. P.S. if you have ever read anything by joe m Solomon and liked it you will love this book since they are written very similarly.
