Tread lightly those who seek the Darkness
Professor William Markinson’s lifelong research led him to the vast hidden caves beneath the sacred grounds west of Bursa. The true aims of his search are well hidden from the other members of the expedition team, but the lost city of Morgainok cannot be denied. The ancient roads echo with the drums of the abyss, leaving five lost souls at the mercy of the city. Horrors stand at every turn as elder things lurk in the shadows.
Lauren Miller is right to guard herself from the others. The dire situation has left the expedition team on the run. She will have to stave off the madness of what she has witnessed for any hope of escape. She must confront the caretakers of the unholy city or Morgainok will keep her forever.
Rise of the Elder
This Horror Survival Series documents the last days of those mortals foolish enough to pry into the affairs of the Cult of the Elder. The dark secrets are tempting, but few live to tell of the horrendous wonders beyond the void.
I received an ARC to give an honest review.
Honestly just reading this book I had nyctophobia because I do not do things in the dark you just never know what is there, especially anything with caves that is a big nope from this girl.
Professor William Markinson is in search of the lost city of Morgainok, with his team he plans on finding it. Yet what they uncover is something truly scary and it or they have no problems with eating you for lunch or dinner. We all know someone has to make it out alive to tell the story but what will happen if you do survive? What lives in the dark is not normal and the people who live below have to make a sacrifice, we get to see what truly happens to those who only worry about saving themselves to get out of the cave and the lost city. There are just some places you should never go and this lost city is one of them. The author does a great job of bringing things from the dark to life and really having developing characters especially the professor. You always have to have the one character who hates to be wrong in dire situations and the author hit it on the nail with this one.
Michael W. Garza often finds himself wondering where his inspiration will come from next and in what form his imagination will bring it to life. The outcomes regularly surprise him and it’s always his ambition to amaze those curious enough to follow him and take in those results. He hopes everyone will find something that frightens, surprises, or simply astonishes them.
