The Watchers by A.M Shine, published by Head of Zeus, is a horror adventure story, set in an Irish forest. That alone was enough to get me intrigued!
Throw in a broken down car, and you know it’s going to be a page turner.
This novel was jam-packed with beautiful, descriptive writing, portraying the imagery of the setting. Mina goes to deliver a bird as a favour to a friend, and it is then that her car breaks down, on the edge of a forest.
Feeling helpless, and scared, Mina is forced to look for help. She hears a woman screaming, urging her to go to a concrete bunker, but once there, the door slams closed, and Mina is trapped with three others, and the bird, as she learns the story of the Watchers.
Every night the Watchers come out, trapping the people in the bunkers… every night, they have to be in the bunkers, before the Watchers come out.
This book has such atmosphere, and creepiness, and is an ideal read for the Halloween season, or any time you want some spookiness in your life!
