White Out by Eric Dimbleby
Publisher: Severed Press
Eric Dimbleby enjoys twisting a sick web of horror for his readers that stays with them long after they read his tales.
The world is coming to a slow, frozen end. Few people are left alive to deal with it and the other survivors – the ones who don’t want to get along and play nice.
Violence and death fall upon those who aren’t prepared to do what’s necessary. Some are forced to…
A woman is trapped at work and wants to get home to her husband and son, but she can’t. Not without the help of a man who would rather keep her all to himself.
They manage to make it a few miles in the snow, only to be attacked.
She has to find the darkness inside herself to survive if she ever wants to see her son again.
Meanwhile…a man who has vile intentions takes up residency in her home, with her family.
Will anything be left if she does manage to make it home alive?
This book shows the twisted darkness that lives inside those we don’t want to think about – the bad people who are evil for no reason, or just for the pleasure of hurting others. In that way, it’s excellent. I would have liked to see more strength in the seemly bipolar, weak-willed female that is the center of this tale; it would have gone a long way in making her more interesting overall. There are many, many grammar issues with this title, but it’s still worth the read.
I give this book: 2Q
