“ Genre: Fiction / Author: Robert Williams / Kindle Edition „
Blackwater Flood is one of the best books I have read on Kindle so far and is another great example of absolutely awesome indie fiction in a sea of mediocrity.
It starts with a young boy, sheltering in his grandmothers house with his parents from a mighty storm outside that refuses to abate. The nearby river is preparing to flood its banks and it looks as though the family is going to be stuck there for some time. But it is not just the flood they have to be worried about....
Scientists at a local nearby Goverment Laboratory have been messing about with things they shouldn't and when the family take a stanger into their midst, they soon learn that the rising flood water is the least of their troubles....there is something out there in the water, several somethings in fact, and they are hungry for flesh.....
This was a very well written, extremely scary thriller that started off well and progressed swiftly throgh a journey into absolute terror. The ending was a little bit contrived but was totally unexpected and brought all the various plot strands together nicely leaving nothing unexplaned and the reader with a good sense that they knew exactly what had happened. There is nothing worse, after all, than a book that leaves you guessing at the end and scratching your head in puzzlement.
I cannot talk about this book too much because I don't want to give anything away, but this book was even good enough to go on my 1001 books and authors to read before you die list on my Blog and this is a real honour!
Overall, I can totally recommend this and can quite cateogorically state that this is one of the best horror thrillers available on Kindle right now!
