Nightmare City - Andrew Klavan


4.5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
What should have been an ordinary morning is about to spiral into a day of unrelenting terror. 
Tom Harding only wants the truth. But the truth is becoming more dangerous with every passing minute.

As a reporter for his high school newspaper, Tom Harding was tracking the best story of his life—when, suddenly, his life turned very, very weird. He woke up one morning to find his house empty . . . his street empty . . . his whole town empty . . . empty except for an eerie, creeping fog—and whatever creatures were slowly moving toward him through the fog.

Now Tom’s once-ordinary world has become something out of a horror movie. How did it happen? Is it real? Is he dreaming? Has there been a zombie apocalypse? Has he died and gone to hell?

Tom is a good reporter—he knows how to look for answers—but no one has ever covered a story like this before. With the fog closing in and the hungry creatures of the fog surrounding him, he has only a few hours to find out how he lost the world he knew. In this bizarre universe nothing is what it seems and everything—including Tom’s life—hangs in the balance.

MY REVIEW -
Let me start by giving Andrew Klavan a huge "two thumbs up!" for producing a great story - every time! There's only a small handful of authors that will make me squeal with joy when they have a new book coming out - Andrew Klavan is one of them!

This book was so original. I don't think I have read one like it. It is creepy, kinda scary, but fun and definitely interesting all at the same time. With Klavan's knack for character development and setting the scene - you will have no trouble at all picturing every single creepy detail. Everything is so vividly drawn out for us.

The suspense in this story will absolutely keep you on the edge of your seat -
 "The doorknob began to turn.
Tom heard the clicking of long claws against the metal. The knob turned tentatively at first. Once this way, once that. Then again. Then it clicked back and forth harder - back and forth. Then the knob began to rattle as the creature grew frustrated. The door began to shiver on it hinges..." ~ gives me the chills just thinking about it.
So is this a nightmare? Or is it real? Is it a nightmare that feels real, or real that feels like a nightmare - or could it be some of both? Either way - this is a clean, YA suspense novel that will engross you right from the beginning. I think this is a book that both adults and teens will enjoy as well as male or female!

Thank you, thank you "Booksneeze" for sending me this great book to read and review!
