Molly and her husband leave their house to find the world suddenly changed. It has become dark and sinister. Many are dead. Even so, the dead talk as if they weren’t. Amid this great chaos, she is befriended by a dog who leads her to believe that she needs to gather up all the children.
This book reminds me a lot of another one of his books: 77 Shadow Street. Both present a world that is overcome with evil things. The difference is that 77 Shadow Street centers around a hotel.
The story felt monotonous to me as well. There were little surprises and the ending was a little anticlimactic.
I give this book a 4. It was a decent book but not his best.
