When three friends go on holiday to Bulgaria, protecting themselves from sunburn is their only real concern, but when they run into a nightmarish beast unlike any they’ve ever imagined in the forested hills far from civilization, their vacation becomes a savage fight for survival.
“The beast licked its upper lip, teasing dried flakes of blood, remembering other bright nights when it had hunted and killed and wallowed in thick red juices. The beast could manoeuvre in total darkness but preferred nights like this, when it could see the blood dripping from its fingers, the terror in the eyes of its victims, its guts shifting sinuously as it ripped with its fangs and swallowed.”
Not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach, Sunburn will introduce you to a monster like none you’ve seen before. The question is — will you survive the encounter or will your torn flesh and splintered bones be added to the scattered remains in the creature’s rat-ridden underground lair?
“The story flows like a dream, and the characters are diverse, divisive and distinct. Mr Dash can not only create a thrilling horror, but the kinds of characters, depth and quality with which he completes the novel bring it to a much higher level. Sunburn is engaging, horrific and visceral, interesting and truly well-written.” Matthew R Bell’s Book Blog Bonanza.
“Vivid and unrelenting… Dash fully realizes the unnamed monster in all of its grotesque, imposing physicality… the novel offers captivating tension and brutal, gory fun.” Kirkus Reviews.
“I cannot go on enough about the book, how great it is and how entertaining. This is an author who knows how to make the readers laugh, cry and scream in terror. To call this a must-read is an understatement!” Kelly Smith Reviews.
“A well-written and disturbing piece of fiction that explores relationships and delves into the deepest corners of the human mind. The plot reads like an international horror movie, enticing the reader with a series of detailed and comedic chapters before exploding into a vision of blood-chilling gore.” Books, Films & Random Lunacy.
“This demonic masterpiece does not fail to disappoint even the biggest of horror fans.” Crossing Pixies.
“A violent culmination of love, friendships, hilarity, thrill, horror and sexâ?¦ Isn’t that what we all want from a good book?! Sunburn literally had me completely HOOKED. A brilliant and thrilling read.” Chase That Horizon.
“The elements of classic horror are very much present here. Sunburn held me firmly in the moment, demanding my full attention right to the very last page.” Thoughts Of An Overactive Imagination.
“Darren Dash builds up the suspense with skillful pacing and a healthy dose of literary restraint, wisely refraining from indulging in the most horrific and grotesque elements of the plot until the reader has become invested in the characters. The result is a horror novel that is suspenseful, fun to read, and at times, very gruesome indeed. It also contains some very good reasons for never forgetting to wear sunscreen.” Safie Maken Finlay, author.
“Like the Hostel films, they have a lot of set up and then shizzle hits the fan… and then hits it again for good measure!” Dark Readers.
