I received this book for free from the Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.The nitty-gritty: A familiar horror scenario gets a facelift in this well written, fast-paced tale. If you like your stories spiked with aggressive sharks, creepy atmosphere and violence, then Infernal was written just for you.

I’m embarrassed to admit I’ve had a copy of Infernal for several months, kindly sent to me FROM SWEDEN by author Cher

**Review originally posted HERE on Sci-Fi & Scary. Thank you to the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**

From the first pages, Infernal is a tense, high-stakes novel that never slows down long enough for the reader to catch their breath. This is survival horror at its finest.

Let me start by saying: nature is terrifying as-is. Add in some supersized wildlife, aggressive predators, and an uninhabited island with the not at all ominous name of “Isla de los Per

Val, a divorced shark enthusiast, agrees to go to an abandoned island with her sister and a film crew to get footage for a new show. What the group of 12, including Val's ex-husband, doesn't know is that the ghost stories of no one making it off of the island are all true.
After the animals begin attacking them and some of the group seems to lose their minds, they discover an even more sinister creature lurking in the forest. Will they be able to survive until help arrives or will they ju

The thing about this book is that it read perfectly like a movie. Like -- I could see it clearly, playing out, the moments where the tension would be stretched out by silence, or suspenseful music.

It opens with our MC, Val, on a shark exhibition with her husband, who is a charming adrenaline junkie who's come to love the ocean just as deeply as his marine biologist wife. They work well together and it's a familiar spot; there are familiar sharks around them, recognisable by markings and tags an

Infernal opens with a motley group of people sharing a boat and preparing to do some filming. One group will film the sharks, another will investigate nearby wrecks, and the third will land on the nearby island, to investigate its flora and fauna. As in all good stories of this kind, they have been warned about the mythology and scare stories associated with the island, but if that stopped people we wouldn't have half the good horror stories we have. But they really should have listened. There i ...more

I woke my husband up by screaming while reading this book. Seriously, not for the easily spooked. Certain scenes leapt out and bit me. Loved the characters (especially Felix) and will never EVER go into the jungle ever ever in a million years. Such a scary read. Highly recommended for fans of horror and those hoping to have trouble sleeping. Not even kidding. Lovvvvvved this.
