Rated 5 stars by Iris Chacon.
In NIGHTWALK, Mark, a charming, self-deprecating everyman, must fight for survival – of his family, friends, an even a group of strangers – when his neighborhood suddenly goes dark and collapses into a hell on earth, just after midnight one ordinary night.
Author D. Nathan Hilliard engages and enthralls the reader with panache, humor, and horror as his reluctant hero struggles to understand what is happening and what must be done to live until dawn.
The story reminded me of Rod Serling’s “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” (If you have never seen this classic Twilight Zone episode, try to find it on YouTube.)
Hilliard takes the story down a longer, steeper, faster, deeper path than Serling did. This author displays amazing (and rare) style and ease as he creates his characters, situations and locations.
The tale is gripping and fun from beginning to end — and you’ll never want to walk under trees in the dark again! Suitable for all ages, but the horror and violence are probably too disturbing for young children.
Iris Chacon’s latest novel, THE MAMMOTH MURDERS, is now available on Amazon worldwide and at your favorite online book seller.
