Book description: When the world we all knew went wrong and the monsters of our deepest nightmares began to stalk the earth, there was a woman who chose to search out and find Sanctuary amidst the increasingly nightmarish landscape of America.
These are the N Days.
Welcome to the story of one Samantha Worthington Day. She is on the run from a demon horde that has torn through the fabled Dreamscape and destroyed everything she ever loved. She is looking for the fabled Sanctuary of America, a place where humanity can find hope, defend that which they believe in, and start rebuilding their shattered world.
As an added attraction, you too can join Samantha on her perilous journey throughout her experiences by tracking her epic journey with the aid of the GPS coordinates provided within the text of her chronicles.
She has a long way to go, and her amazing destiny is yet to be revealed.
Called of Lightning, Called of Darkness, Called of Light!
Journey and experience the Days of N with Samantha Worthington Day.
Before I get started I should tell you that this book passed my expectations, and it was awesome. The N Days is what I would definitely classify as cool. You first learn about N day and follow the journey of Englishwoman Samantha Worthington Day through America on her way to kick ultimate butt.
McKay has a very vivid imagination and definitely did his research of various cultures and myths, that much is obvious from the start. Each creature, character, and location (and there are MANY) is described in detail without being overwhelming and each is loveable, detestable, vicious, and nightmarish in their own respects. McKay has way of making you love each character, even though many do not get to stay in long periods of time. The action scenes are descriptive and refreshingly gory enough to keep you up and turning pages.
The book is written in in-the-moment-first person, and usually it is difficult to pull off, but McKay nailed it (it is the journal of Samantha), and I loved it, unlike many books I’ve read in this style. I do not have accurate words to explain how fun and thrilling this book is, I completely recommend it to every fantasy, paranormal, and monster-mythology lover out there. An added bonus is that at the end of each chapter, the reader is given coordinates and is able to map Samantha’s journey.
I do not often give a full 5 stars to a book, but this one was so fun, I feel it deserves it.
