Taking their kids on a hunting trip to Maker's Woods, Sergeant Kris Jensen and her Special Ops friends, Brooke and Melanie, soon realize they are the ones being hunted.
As a covert military base sends out units to neutralize the threat, Kris, her son, the kids, and friends fight to survive against an enemy ripped from a loved one that will stop at nothing to infect them and overrun our world with its offspring.
Kris battles the ultimate nightmare. One that refuses to end and might ultimately destroy her and the entire human race.”
There’s something out there and it ain’t no man. Or woman. Or of earth.
Alone in the woods, three women and their children find themselves up against a horde of beasts like no one was ever set eyes on before…and survived. But luckily the three women concerned are highly trained soldiers on a hunting trip, so don’t take the appearance of their antagonists lightly and quickly become a force to be reckoned with.
Lock and load.
Part Aliens, part Predator, Obsidious is an enjoyable, but by the numbers, guns and gore military bullet fest. It doesn’t break any new ground in the monsters vs humans genre, but the female leads are plucky enough to keep it interesting as endless piles of marine meat fill the forest floor.
If you want something short, that gets stuck into the action within the first few pages, doesn’t let go until the last page, and is action packed from cover to cover with guns and bombs and blood and brains and teeth, Obsidious is a B-movie read that harks back to 80’s horror with plenty of references to look out for.
