Cover Art & Synopsis for 'Last Days' (Adam Nevill)

As soon as I'd finished Adam Nevill's 'The Ritual', and realised that Nevill was working on another book, I couldn't wait to see what he came up with next. I'm going to have to wait a little longer yet but what I've seen of the cover and blurb has whetted my appetite further still. Check this lot out,

And they're telling me this is the rough cover art... If this is the rough cover then surely there will only be a few tweaks required for the final version as this looks pretty darn cool as it is.

And here's the blurb...

They visit after dark and they never let go . . .

When indie filmmaker, Kyle Freeman, is offered a deal to make a documentary about a notorious cult, an opportunity to avoid both bankruptcy and obscurity is finally on the table.

Led by the infamous Sister Katherine, The Temple of the Last Days reached its bloody endgame in the Arizona desert in 1975. Ever since, rumour and speculation about the group’s mystical secrets and paranormal experiences have lain half-concealed behind a legacy of murder, sexual deviancy and imprisonment.

The shoot’s locations take Kyle and his one-man crew to the cult’s original bases in London, France and finally to the desert crime scene where the cult self-destructed in a night of ritualistic violence. But when Kyle interviews the remaining survivors, who haven’t broken silence in decades, a series of uncanny events and unexplained phenomena plague the production. And what exactly is it they are managing to record in any place the Temple once resided?

Troubling out-of-body experiences and nocturnal visitations, the sudden demise of their interviewees and the discovery of ghastly artefacts soon pitches Kyle into the unnerving realisation that he is entangled in the cult’s hideous vestiges.

And whenever the old friends call, there’s no light, no warning and no mercy . . .

I'm really looking forward to laying my hands on a copy of 'Last Days', does it sound like your kind of thing?

What I read of The Ritual was bloody good, though my TBR pile grew massively so I had to stop in favour of fantasy. I need to go back to it. Last Days looks to pretty awesome too

The Ritual was frigging scary. Sometimes, late at night I can hear a scraping sound outside from the court yard. I imagine it's someone with hoofs clomping around!!!
