Product description

Product Description

It was supposed to be a quiet end to a long day: five close-knit family and friends settling in for some much-needed sleep after coming together for an early Christmas party.

Instead, it’s the beginning of a shocking night of brutality when six intruders break into the sprawling residence of Debra Hillsboro, a middle-aged romance novelist with a fierce devotion to her loved ones and a strong kinship with her home of almost thirty years.

Armed with smartphones and a modern brand of madness, the intruders – an internet-age cult disconnected from humanity and addicted to causing fear and mayhem – have come to the secluded property for one purpose: to terrorize, and ultimately kill, everyone inside all while filming their heinous crimes.

Outnumbered and cut off from the outside world, the terrified occupants find themselves trapped in a fight for survival as a once place of safety is turned into a deadly maze of darkened rooms and forbidding hallways. On this sweltering summer night, they must somehow find a way to escape before the cult turns the beloved home into a house for the dead.

The first night that I decided to jump into ‘The Invasion’ by Brett McBean I read around 20% of it on my Kindle. I liked what I read. The book was set in my home country of Australia and had an interesting way in which it was written; each chapter takes place inside of a different room within a house. We are introduced to the characters inside of the house and before you know it they have some unwelcome visitors. That is pretty much the synopsis. The next night I started reading again, couldn’t put it down and finished it.
The story caught my off guard a little. It is quite long (300+ pages) and things take shape very early on. When the intruders entered the story so soon I thought the author had made a terrible mistake. How could this invasion keep me engaged for another 200+ pages? Isn’t it going to run out of ideas? Will it run out of steam?
What I didn’t know was enough about Brett McBean. I am aware of him and his work but have never read any of his stories before and so here is where I start gushing about this book…
‘The Invasion’ is THE best horror book that I have read in 2016 (along with ‘Mister White’ by John C. Foster). McBean is a superb storyteller. ‘The Invasion’ hit all the right buttons for me as a reader and I will tell you why: The characters are excellent; just a bunch of very ordinary, unspectacular folk that you could easily imagine living next door to, and this is why what happens to them is all the more horrific and upsetting. The dialogue is natural and free flowing; never feeling forced or out of place. The tension McBean creates is intense, due in part to the pacing of the chapters.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this novel.

The Invasion is an intensely terrifying story. Having read other books by Brett McBean (Desolation Game: Wolf Creek 2) I expected him to bring on the horror and I wasn't disappointed. We start off getting to know just enough about a group of family and friends to see that they are decent people who love one another. The scene is set. It's cozy and warm like a fuzzy robe on a cold night. Then BAM! A group of people break in with only one goal in mind,,, to terrify, torture and murder the people in the house. The storyline reminded me of The Strangers or You're Next, and as with those stories I spent a lot of time thinking 'Get out of there! Run! No, don't hide there!'. The cult and their leader, Mr. Fear, are terrifying in their total disregard for the lives they are taking. Viewing the people they are torturing and killing as nothing more than playthings that will garner them internet fame. One of the cult actually states that "I can't do it if it's not being filmed It won't count if no one else can see it.". This coldness and lack of empathy are horrifying to me. It makes The Invasion a very effective horror story. The only complaint I had about this book is the house. It would have been a five star read without the chapter from the house's perspective. I would still recommend it to horror fans. A darkly twisted 4 star read.
