Something evil is at work in Hyde River, an isolated
mining town in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest.
Under the cover of darkness, a predator strikes without
warning, taking life in the most chilling and savage
fashion. The community of Hyde River watches in terror
as residents suddenly vanish. Yet, the more locals are
pressed for information, the more they close ranks,
sworn to secrecy by their forefather' hidden sins. Only
when Hyde River's secrets are exposed is the true extent
of the danger fully revealed. What the town discovers
is something far more deadly than anything they'd imagined.
Something that doesn't just stalk its victims, but has
the power to turn hearts black with decay as it slowly
fills their souls with darkness.
Oath is science fiction writing at its very best.
Gripping, right from the beginning. A multitude of great
characters, that came across as genuine and real as
if the story is an actual re-enactment. Great flow.
It did move at a snail’s pace at some points but
that only had me wanting to read faster and to keep
going. Now having read it, looking back, it is amazing
to see where the story started and how far it goes as
well as how many different directions it goes in as
well as how many facets it has throughout the tale.
I recommend reading this.
