These are just a few of the days humans prophesied as bringing catastrophic events that would end the world. We predicted nuclear warfare. Drastic climate change. A call from God.
We were wrong.
Cue the gargoyle invasion—laboratory bred mutants designed to slaughter humans. When the government goes AWOL and gargoyles are swarming by the hundreds, it’s up to the citizens of the United States to regroup and save themselves.
Meet Cliff Matthews, a teenage boy separated from his entire family with the exception of his younger sister, whom he is desperate to keep alive. Along the quest to save their lives, he encounters people who aren’t all that they seem. Everyday’s a battle, but if he can’t trust his own species, where does that leave his family?
And we can’t forget the man who may be willing to sacrifice Cliff’s life, if it means world domination.
In terms of doomsday, no one could’ve seen this coming.
There was so much that I enjoyed in this. Firstly that I was able to review an apocalyptic story this close to Christmas is like Christmas to me! And the amount of gore in here, ahhh… I could see the blood squiring everywhere. It was like a Quentin Tarantino novel! Maybe not for everyone, but definitely hit my right spots!
The gargoyle invasion was actually really interesting. A bit fast in the beginning, so much so that I was a little confused as to what in the hell was happening but as I brought it all together I was able to get into the story more.
The characters are fabulously done. No insta love! THANK YOU! And although I enjoyed the characters, Angel was by far my favorite. What a cute girl. I had a picture of my niece in my head the entire time! Let’s hope she doesn’t have to watch gargoyles tear off the legs of innocent bystanders and eat them anytime soon!
All in all, really fun, different story! A few hiccups but I really enjoyed it. And the blood and guts everywhere was just awesome!
