The Underdwelling

The Underdwelling - Tim Curran Just a thought. If you are a mile under the surface of the earth in a cavern that hasn't been opened since before the dinosaurs and you shine your flashlight and something stares right back at you---that is MOST DEFINITELY NOT a good thing.

My first book by Tim Curran. He has several big pluses going for him. Great creation of atmosphere. I could really picture the dank cave a mile under the ground and the 5 scared miners listening for any unexplained noises and jumping at shadows. Curran took his time to let the creepiness sink in and it paid off. The monster was NASTY. And from there it actually got better. I did not see this ending coming at all. Extra points for a great, creative, and completely unexpected ending. (4.5 stars)
