Jonathan wakes up in a desert, his past wiped from his head. He’s alone having no clue who and what he is, where he has come from and where he should go. There is only one way – forward when he spots a little town in the distance.
Empty streets, old houses, the town seems abandoned. There’s no one to ask for help, there’s nowhere to go. Jonathan wanders the town in search of any sign of life trying to bring his lost memories back, but odd visions haunt him from time to time. Soon Jonathan comes to the realization that he’s moments from death as absolutely evil dwells in the town seeking fresh souls to suck up. The seemingly dead town is only outwardly empty.
Grey skies, no sun, no days and no nights. The town is stuck in time. With only one entrance and one exit, but the way leading to the exit is filled with creations that Jonathan has never envisioned, even in his worst nightmares.
Who is he? Who brought him here? With a female resident – Elizabeth, Jonathan has to work his way through the horrendous town, figure out his past and find the exit
My Review: So John wakes up with no memory of anything. He pretty much gets to start a new life and it starts with him finding this empty town. Finding what seems like a ghost town should be warning enough, but John just keeps searching for any sign that there is a person or something living there. Well there is something there, its called evil.
Besides meeting John who is a good character, we get to meet Elizabeth. She is like the hero of the book and I wasn't exactly thrilled with her. She wasn't they best hero I've read, but she was okay to deal with at times.
I do love a good fight scene, but this one had too many for me. And I just wasn't feeling it.
This book did have a bunch of great moments, but it just wasn't enough to keep me so wrapped up.
