Cover Reveal: WRATH OF THE ANCIENTS by Catherine Cavendish #horror #suspense #amreading

by Catherine Cavendish
Genre: Horror/Suspense
Pub Date: 10/24/2017
Egypt, 1908
Eminent archeologist Dr. Emeryk
Quintillus has unearthed the burial chamber of Cleopatra. But this
tomb raider’s obsession with the Queen of the Nile has nothing to
do with preserving history. Stealing sacred and priceless relics, he
murders his expedition crew, and flees—escaping the quake that
swallows the site beneath the desert sands . . .
Vienna, 1913
Young widow Adeline Ogilvy has accepted
employment at the mansion of Dr. Quintillus, transcribing the late
professor’s memoirs. Within the pages of his journals, she
discovers the ravings of a madman convinced he possessed the ability
to reincarnate Cleopatra. Within the walls of his home, she is
assailed by unexplained phenomena: strange sounds, shadowy figures,
and apparitions of hieroglyphics.
Something pursued Dr. Quintillus from
Egypt. Something dark, something hungry. Something tied to the fate
and future of Adeline Ogilvy . . .
Following a varied career in sales,
advertising and career guidance, Catherine Cavendish is now the
full-time author of a number of paranormal, ghostly and Gothic horror
novels, novellas and short stories. She was the 2013 joint winner of
the Samhain Gothic Horror Anthology Competition, with Linden Manor,
which was featured in the anthology What Waits in the Shadows. Cat’s
novels include The Pendle Curse, Saving Grace Devine, and Dark
Avenging Angel. She lives with her long-suffering husband and black
(trainee) cat. They divide their time between Liverpool and a
260-year-old haunted apartment in North Wales.

28 Weeks Later

This the third movie in the series 28 days, 28 days later, and now 28 weeks later. All of these movies deal with a period of time after an outbreak in London and the surrounding areas. From what I can remember of the first two movies, there might have been one or two deranged people, but for the most part, the main characters had some common sense.

As this movie opens, there is a farm house in the country and the occupants are getting cabin fever after being confined there for a number of weeks. I should have taken a clue from the dumb girl in the beginning, pining for lost boyfriend, who gave away their location to the rage infected zombies. For the rest of the movie, I was annoyed by the two children who consistently acted in a way to endanger their lives and the lives of the adults trying to keep them safe. The 28 weeks later outbreak was pretty much the fault of the two disobedient, hard-headed kids. By the end of the movie, I was wishing that something would happen to them. That is how exasperated I was with their behavior.

Maybe I am too hard hearted or too much of a realist, but if a zombie apocalypse happens, there is no time to hesitate and try to save everybody. In a stress filled situation, not staying with the group will increase your chances of getting killed. If you do not listen when instructed to stay with the group, you get left behind. PERIOD. None of this “they are only children” nonsense. If they are tweens and teenagers like the kids in this movie, then they are old enough to understand what they are being told to do.
