From the new master of horror, Brian Keene, brings "Darkness on the Edge of Town". Keene continues to hone his chops in new and inventive ways. This fast paces near novella is just long enough to keep it an honest novel and just short enough to keep the pace moving at the frantic speed necessary to tell the tale.

This could be seen as Keene's take on the "Under the Dome" premise. At first it seems that way but the story soon reveals itself to be not merely just a 'how do humans act when they are forced to deal with one another'. Darkness on the Edge of Town turns to the truely supernatural and horror. The story ultimatly links the recurring Keene theme of the monsters of the Labrynth.

The book is written in brutal detail that you can come to expect of Keene. Graphic, honest and human. When Keene isn't being gory he is being deeply insightful into the human condition. A rare talent in the genre in this day and age. Read this and all the other stuff from Brian Keene.
