The writing is stilted and hackneyed, reliant on stereotypes and tropes to keep the plot moving. It is possible for horror novels to have beautiful writing but THE TROOP just doesn't mak... " Read more of this review »

“The past had a perfection that the future could never hold.”
Nick Cutter, The Troop

“His fear was whetted to such a fine edge that he could actually feel it now: a disembodied ball of baby fingers inside his stomach, tickling him from the inside. That's what mortal terror felt like, he realized. Tiny fingers tickling you from the inside.”
Nick Cutter, The Troop
