Inhaltsangabe zu "Broken Shells: A Subterranean Horror Novella"

Antoine DeWitt is a man down on his luck. Broke and recently fired, he knows the winning Money Carlo ticket that has landed in his mailbox from a car dealership is nothing more than a scam. The promise of five thousand dollars, though, is too tantalizing to ignore.

Jon Dangle is a keeper of secrets, many of which are buried deep beneath his dealership. He works hard to keep them hidden, but occasionally sacrifices are required, sacrifices who are penniless, desperate, and who will not be missed. Sacrifices exactly like DeWitt.

When Antoine steps foot on Dangle’s car lot, it is with the hope of easy money. Instead, he finds himself trapped in a deep, dark hole, buried alive. If he is going to survive the nightmare ahead of him, if he has any chance of seeing his wife and child again, Antoine will have to do more than merely hope. He will have to fight his way back to the surface, and pray that Jon Dangle’s secrets do not kill him first.

    Kurzmeinung: Full of surprises.
    There's always a catch...

    When Antoine DeWitt looses his job, you might assume his day just couldn't get any worse. So when his wife finds they won a dubious lottery and he should go collect the 5 grand immediately, Antoine just knows there must be a catch. Hell, even the reader knows it, but the wife is just so convincing he can't say no. So Antoine finds himself at a car dealership somewhere beyond the outskirts of town, feeling uneasy and hesitant all the time. When even the car dealer confirms that he is a winner, Antoine slowly starts to relax - which is the moment the 'catch' hits him and throws him down into a dark cellar hole.

    When Antoine wakes up again, he finds himself not only in a nightmare, but in the worst possible nightmare ever. Below ground live some really creepy creatures, and Antoine is supposed to be their next meal. He's already wrapped up in a kind of cocoon (supposedly to keep fresh). But Antoine decides this will not be the way he dies, and what follows is an all-out fight for survival, driven by the thought of seeing his family again. Lots of action and gore, unexpected turns, an impressive showdown and a mean ending - what more could you wish for?

    I love creature features so I was thrilled when I learned this was another one, and well done! I wasn't aware of the myths it is based on. I was wondering where the creatures came from and what their background was, so I was glad to find that information as part the story. (view spoiler)

    This was the first book I've read from the author, but will definitely not be the last. Recommended!
