In 1989, in Howqua Hills, Australia, three farmers are attacked by ... something. The carnage discovered by police officers the next morning raises questions about who, or what,is stalking the residents.

The reader is dropped into the middle of the action right from the first paragraph. And it never stops. The entire book is fast-paced, heart-stopping action. The human characters are well drawn, and beautifully flawed. I didn't always like them, but I always believed them.

Where the book loses me is the portrayal of the dark horde itself. We never find out exactly what they are - they resemble werewolves, but they're not. And we never find out why they're attacking humans, which leaves the impression that they're just mindlessly rampaging. I prefer my villains to be as complex and believable as my heroes.
