Afterwalkers product reviews

For hundreds of years the people of Alderston have guarded a terrible secret. When Jamie's family receives a summons to do a mysterious job, they move into a house that looks over the graveyard. Soon Jamie witnesses a series of strange visions and terrible attacks. He begins to suspect that the great iron cages placed on top of the graves are not there to keep robbers out, but to keep the dead in.

I wouldn't say this was an easy read. It was more involved than I thought it would be and had its complications, although still easy it was dark and unfeeling at times. It was a seasaw ride for me - at times I loved it and could not wait to turn the page to find out what would happen and then there were times I got bored and found my mind wandering.

I was actually unsure where the story was going and instead of guessing what would happen just read it and took each step as was given. I did not even guess who the bad dude was and instead found myself a little shocked at the way things played out.

I loved the Prologue and found it exciting and fast paced and that alone had me cemented to reading the book but then it turned into something a little different. Jamie and his brother Liam and father Sarge are thieves of the night and take what they can get. When a job takes them to Alderston things take a weird turn. Where as Liam and Sarge have there sights on the big job Jamie is unearthing the towns deep secrets.

A great ghost story. Dealing with the undead Draugrs also known as the Vikings Undead - a kind of zombie except they are condemned to forever haunt the location of their death like guard dogs of Hell. They hate the living and want to get there revenge on anyone in there way. Jamie finds the truth and tries to help a town who hates strangers.

It does take a while to actually get into the story instead setting everything up. The second half of the book is where all the action is and winds up beautifully. There are a still unanswered questions but as a whole it is fitting. Actually the kind of story I could see being made into a movie - not a great movie but a watchable one nevertheless.
