Book Review: The Aberration
Rating: 4 of 5
Author: Bard Constantine
Guy Mann woke from the dream, or what he hoped was a dream, and stared at his surroundings wondering if he was going mad. The spear, the blood, the killing, the evil, and in the waking world the signs and the warning… “The Aberration is here.” What did it all mean, and why him? Unfortunately, as the storm rolled in trapping Guy and his fellow Mill workers he was about to find out. With no communication to the outside world and without escape from the faceless monsters surrounding and pressing in on the mill, Guy’s past lives memories rush back and he knew he alone would be able to save them and possibly the world… unless he really was crazy.
Bard Constantine’s, The Aberration, pulses with action holding the reader with a bizarre intrigue of horrors external and within. Constantine’s narrative serves up a bone chilling experience instilling the reader with the same dread and fear his characters experience as the novel’s action escalates. Part Twilight Zone and Angel Heart, Constantine plays with readers as the antagonist plays with Guy – is the Aberration real or the imagined memories of a crazed man looking for meaning?
For those looking for a short but gripping horror novel and a little something different, check out The Aberration.
