"nightmare city" by andrew klavan

About the book (from Goodreads): Tom Harding only wants the truth. But the truth is becoming more dangerous with every passing minute.

As a reporter for his high school newspaper, Tom Harding was tracking the best story of his life when, suddenly, his life turned very, very weird. He woke up one morning to find his house empty . . . his street empty . . . his whole town empty . . . empty except for an eerie, creeping fog and whatever creatures were slowly moving toward him through the fog.

Now Tom's once-ordinary world has become something out of a horror movie. How did it happen? Is it real? Is he dreaming? Has there been a zombie apocalypse? Has he died and gone to hell?

Tom is a good reporter. He knows how to look for answers, but no one has ever covered a story like this before. With the fog closing in and the hungry creatures of the fog surrounding him, he has only a few hours to find out how he lost the world he knew. In this bizarre universe, nothing is what it seems, and everything—including Tom's life—hangs in the balance.

My take: From beginning to end, Nightmare City had me captivated. I flew through the pages, eager, like Tom, to learn the truth. I loved the way the story unfolded, using flashbacks to fill in the gaps. And the suspense is palpable. While I didn't doubt the final outcome of the story, Klavan provided many tense moments leading up to the resolution!

Nightmare City is a thrill ride from start to finish, yet it also incorporates Biblical truth, making it a book I can wholeheartedly recommend to teens and other fans of YA fiction.

My rating: 5 stars
