What rests beneath the ground is not always asleep…
Mike Cooper has spent his life fruitlessly searching for gold in the great American West. Looking to finally make his fortune, he decides to risk everything and pack up his crew of fellow miners to head for the heart of gold-rich Ghana West Africa, where an opportunity arises that’s too good to ignore.
Leased a plot of land, Mike and his crew feel they’re on the cusp of success. Overrun by greed, they ignore all of the warning signs that something is dangerously wrong with the land they’re mining. And soon they discover that the time-worn ground holds secrets that are best left buried.
For nothing is as it seems in this forgotten world.
Terror lurks in the hearts of men who quickly learn that the stuff of nightmares is all too real and what starts as a new beginning, rapidly becomes a frightening ordeal of horror and bloodshed.
They signed the contract. They staked their claim. And now time is running out for them.
They wanted to find gold, but now they only want to keep their souls.
But the demon is awake, and he’s hungry…
I know you guys are expecting one of my usual longwinded reviews of Claire’s newest book, but there is really only so much I can say about this one without giving away any of the story.
Blood Claim is definitely a different kind of horror from what I’m used to seeing from this author. I loved that there was no romance because, as you know, that is most definitely not my kind of thing. It’s very well written and exciting as we have come to expect from this author, which is one of the reasons I have come to rely on her as an author that doesn’t disappoint, even after she wrote some romances I didn’t read. I’ll admit it took me a minute to get into the story because I’m impatient like that, but once they got moving I couldn’t wait to see how things would turn out with Mike and the guys in Ghana and I am still somewhat creeped out.
I highly recommend Blood Claim to anyone looking for something different from your run of the mill type of horror story.
