Something stirs beneath the ice-locked tundra of Snowdonia National Park. An ancient force of unspeakable evil scrabbles at the boundaries between worlds. Its servants creep from sunless caverns and crave the taste of warm human flesh. Ithaqua summons his children home. A new age approaches. Gibbering monsters and nameless horrors await and a blend of man and beast is needed to show the Great Old Ones the way. Dwellers in the deep. Fields of quivering flesh. All await the children of the Wind Walker . . . 

Includes the BONUS STORY Everett Smiles

Sheila is coming . . . 
The sky is brushed through with copper. The land is a frozen ruin. Aliens have slipped through the space between spaces to consume humanity with their endless obscene desires. Rifts in the fabric of the world bleed suggestion. My son waits out there beneath a curious orange sun. 
I . . . I have to find him. 
Sheila is coming . . .

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

It’s been a while since I read straight horror but this one fits the bill. Wind Walker is about a small group of people who are going through Snowdonia National Park when they have an accident. What happens next is unthinkable, at least to most of them. There were times that the story was a bit “out there” and I would have preferred that it was more straightforward but it had a good ending.

Everett Smiles is the bonus story but I liked it more than Wind Walker. I was tickled by the title because Everett always smiles. Everett Smiles is about the end of the world but what a horrible end it is! It also had a good ending.
