It wasn't scary and I totally did not get what the horror aspect of this story was supposed to be. It was very slow moving and pretty much went nowhere.
I've read a few of James Herbert's books and enjoyed them. Was very excited to read another one. This was definitely a disappointment. I was so utterly bored through 97% of this book. I had no care for the characters and it was a struggle just to finish it. But I did and was rewarded with the last 3%. That was when it got exciting and then next thing you know it ended. I would not recommend this book. If you want to read any of Herbert's work I would go with Fluke, The Magic Cottage, The Fog (all of these I read and enjoyed) but skip this one!
A psychic blessed with the power to spot gold, diamonds and oil beneath the surface of the earth. His bodyguard, Halloran, whose gnawing curiosity seals his fate in a tomb of unearthly fear. And an ancient evil so horrifying that dreaming of it can cause madness, death....and worse.
Great book - true horror.
A house with dark and terrible secrets--so begins the jacket description. Another good tale of horror from Herbert.
