Tor Nightfire. (Robert Grim, Bk. 2). Apr. 2024. 384p. tr. from Dutch by Moshe Gilula. ISBN 9781250759580. $29.99. HORROR
On a foggy winter morning, Luca and Emma find The Oracle (a ship that sank in 1716) dropped, in perfect condition, onto an empty field. When Emma climbs through the ship’s hatch, an eerie bell rings, and she disappears without a trace. Ten more people will disappear through the hatch before a secret Dutch security agency closes off the site and begins to cover up the horrific truth of what is happening. Robert Grim is living in Atlantic City, paid to keep what he knows about Black Springs, NY, quiet, but this broken man is called to go back into service once again, as all of humanity is in danger of drowning in an ancient evil. Told in the style of an international thriller and featuring a huge cast of well-developed characters, the novel is a deep dive into how the tendrils of the past can reach out and force humanity to heed a warning. Fans of Olde Heuvelt’s Hex will be happy to see Grim back after a long absence, but this time the threat is much broader in scope.
VERDICT Suggest to fans of popular horror/thriller series by Christopher Golden, Chuck Wendig, and Mira Grant.
