All passengers please prepare for departureAn employee a cop and five prisoners; a prisoner a stowaway and a madmanThese are the people waiting at the Lawton bus terminal Mostly late night travelers who want nothing than to get to their destinations and employees who want nothing than to get through the graveyard shiftBut when a strange otherworldly fog rolls in the night chang. I ve read a few books by author Michaelbrent Collings and they have all been solid horror stories as well as excellent character studies and as reader who loves a good character driven story I really appreciate the deep dive into their psyches I like knowing what makes people tick because I am nosy and also because so many authors don t do it They allow the action to take over the entire show and that s when they usually lose me If you re the same type of reader you should check out this guy s work Several people awaiting a bus find themselves trapped within the bus terminal when a creepy fog rolls in The fog brings with it death and dire warnings if you leave you die and they soon realize via a text message that they re all trapped inside of some sort of sadistic game trick or alien invasion and that only one of them will survive If they don t choose a survivor within the specified time frame they re all going to dieSo guess what happens when you put a gang member a junkie a lazy good for nothing jerky security officer a drug dealer a Mary Kay pusher and a few decent people with secrets yes that is my catnip and there are plenty of them here under intense pressure like this TERRIBLE THINGS bloody things messy and gory things heehee The intense situation brings out the best and the worst in these people and it expertly shows all of the intricate facets that make them both awful and human And also what the heck is out there lurking in the fogTerminal is a weird sinister story that kept me guessing and even though I ve read probably too many horror stories for most sane people I did not figure out that ending and I appreciated that There were plenty of clues but I apparently missed them all until the reveal and then I was all ahh you dummy it was all there right in front of you I d recommend it to anyone who enjoys getting to know a cast of characters and watching them get picked off in terrible ways one by one

Es to nightmare Because something hides in the fog Something powerful Something strange Something inhumanSoon those in the terminal have been cut off from the rest of the world No phones no computers Just ten strangers in the terminal and The OtherThe Other is the force in the mist The Other is the thing that has captured them And The Other wants to play a game The rules are si. My review of TERMINAL can be found at High Fever BooksA mysterious fog enshrouds a bus terminal trapping nearly a dozen people inside as travel plans are abruptly canceled and transformed into a game of life or death The electronics go haywire a mysterious message appearing on everyone s cell phone outlining the rules of the game The people in the terminal must choose one individual from their company to survive and the rest will die Anyone who leaves the terminal before the final vote dies And the final vote must be unanimousMichaelbrent Collings delivers up a uniue twist on foggy horror creating a character driven work in the vein of The Mist served up Ten Little Indians style and with a healthy and much welcomed dose of The Twilight Zone for good measureWhat I dug most about Terminal was the puzzling nature of it all There s a nifty bit of psychological suspense baked into the premise right from the get go but Collings takes this a step further as he slowly begins to unravel each characters backgrounds There s a washed up cop a ticket teller who escaped the ghetto a Mary Kay saleswoman a newlywed couple and Each of them have secrets as well as hidden depths and reserves that call into uestion who and how the final survivor will be chosenor who will simply claim victory by any means necessary Eually mysterious is the nature of the threat awaiting them outside the terminal the odd fog and thethingslurking within it Collings keeps you guessing for nearly the entire page count adding and subtracting complications as he goes giving you plenty of new wrinkles to iron out as he maneuvers his way through his large cast And although this is a pretty large cast it s never unwieldily which is no small feat Every character gets their chance to shine and we get to know each of them and their backgrounds sufficiently well which only makes it harder to suss out who the game s final winner will be Terminal is a nifty little puzzler of a book and Collings moves the players and plot around less like a chess master and like a grand champion solver of Rubik s cubes The characters their interactions motivations and situations all revolve around one another clicking and interlocking until the final piece of the puzzle tumbles into place The final reveal of Terminal is masterclass level stuff and legitimately surprised me Even after I thought I knew for sure how this was going to end Collings had one trick up his sleeve But that s the real secret here Terminal isn t so much a puzzle after all It s a magic trick and a damn good one at thatNote I received a copy of this title from the author
