I love books about space travel and other planets. I also love stories with horrific creatures.
I found both in Precipice.
A large ship is swallowed up in the ocean and it sounds the death knell for Earth.
Meanwhile, 55 million miles from Earth, Lieutenant Travis Daniels and his elite team are little more than prisoners.
After a FUBAR mission, Travis made a deal to keep his team from a death sentence and they are now on Mars, helping to colonize it.
When they aren’t mining, they spend most of their time in their cells.
“The excitement of being stationed on the fourth planet from the sun has long since worn off.”
Travis was already on Mars when his wife, Annie, discovers she’s pregnant. Since then, he’s only seen his son, Logan, twice, and that was on a monitor.
When they lose all communication with Earth, and finally do get a transmission, it shows an Earth with deep trenches ripped through it and flashes of strange creatures crawling out of them.
Travis has to find a way to get to his family while dealing with a madman that has control over them and the only ship able to get them home.
I enjoyed the camaraderie between Travis and his team. Each had their own distinct voice and their own place in the story. Without good secondary characters a story falls flat. Not so with this book.
While the situation on Mars is deteriorating, Earth has fallen into ruin. What crawls out of those trenches is terrifying.
They are so fast, you barely have time to blink before they’re on you. With lizard like skin and jaws of a hell hound, once they get close to you, you’re dead. I call them the ‘dobiegators.’
Then there’s the big guy. He is so huge he is beyond comprehension. The best description I can give you is the creature from the movie Cloverfield.
This thing is so big it crushes buildings, reaching in to grab the people cowering inside.
It’s one thing after another, both on Earth and on Mars.
With Earth overrun and Mars not ready to be colonized yet, these people are between a rock and a hard place.
Kevin has written a thrilling, terrifying story with special ops, the end of the world, madmen, creatures from the bowels of Hell, and action galore.
When I finished reading Precipice, I said, “Yep, just what I needed.”
I love my horror and suspense and that’s just what I got!

I’ve also read Faithful Shadow
Faithful Shadow takes you beyond the splendor of nature to the terror that lies beneath, one that should have never been discovered. Yellowstone is suffering from the largest forest fire in the park’s history. Ranger JOE RAND, once passionate about nature and now drowning in alcohol after the recent death of his son, notices something is very wrong within Yellowstone after a string of disappearances. But when a fireman is found dead in the Old Faithful Inn after falling into a hole earlier that day, his body mauled and deprived of all its fluids, Joe knows he has no choice but to set down his flask and investigate. Joe and Lieutenant DALE CAFFEY of the Billings Fire Department go into the woods to search the hole the fireman had fallen into. They discover a series of tunnels lined with bones, the air thick with smoke. Joe and Dale conclude that the creature that had killed the fireman had left its subterranean dwelling to flee the overwhelming smoke from the fire above. The creature takes shelter inside the Inn, concealing itself within the darkened crevices, emerging to feast on passersby. After staging an evacuation of the park, they lock themselves inside the Inn to hunt the creature. After just a short while it becomes frighteningly clear that it is, in fact, the creature that is hunting them.
Hell has come to Yellowstone and it’s just getting started.
