During the eye of a hurricane, evil strikes.
Six strangers get stuck on an island during a roaring hurricane. They have nothing in common, but five of them will have to join forces to survive the night. Meanwhile, the sixth wants nothing more than to kill every single one of them.
Join Annette, Chad, Heather, Spencer, and Kate on the worst night of their lives. Can they survive or will the killer maniacally laugh while eviscerating them? Filled with gore, terror, and the little moments between humans that can make or break their budding friendships.
"The gore is brutal...I had to skip over parts just to get through it. Very creative premise." - ARC Reader
Can you make it all the way to the end?
Grab a copy of the latest terrifying book from the #1 Amazon best-selling author behind Sinkhole and The Haunting of Cabin Green. Evil Eye is a mixture of the classic slasher Halloween and the fun survival horror movie Crawl.
The looming threat of worsening weather combined with a killer on the loose makes for some fun and thrilling reading in a story that could easily be an evening spent at the cinema or at home via Netflix. Here we see a diverse group stranded and united by their will to survive a double whammy of hurricane and deranged killer.
From the very start there's pace to a story that unfolds just like the hurricane that engulfs those left behind on an island. Soon enough they realise someone is hunting them down and so the real slasher story begins but it's more than that. Each character has their own complexities and we see things from each of their unique perspectives which then interact with one another - most of the time in these stories it's easy to pick out who will be taken down first but there's an unpredictability here making it all the more enjoyable and page turning.
While we are used to our masked but faceless killers being without any dialogue the author carves an original path with her version of evil walking because for some of it he is also talking. As he slowly stalks his prey and throughout it feels as if there is no escape with the hurricane situation heightening that terror. And in this particular situation there is nowhere to run. To some that's uncomfortable, but to me that's the perfect storm of horror quite literally.
Although titled as a slasher I'll happily admit it's a lot more than that with some nods to modern issues in society and the wider world. Much of the time there's seems to be a lack of ideas with the ending but for this one, there were a few final twists that capped of a fun read. So come for the slashing but stay for everything else this story is about, you'll be pleasantly surprised while also being on edge.
