Walker Kane didn't believe in monsters ... Until they took his daughter.

Beneath the streets of Edinburgh, an ancient evil waits. Each year, the Grendsluagh—a prehistoric monster of insatiable hunger—demands a human sacrifice in exchange for the city’s continued prosperity. A secret society known only as the Cabal has overseen this sinister ritual for centuries, binding Edinburgh to a grim legacy of terror.

When ex-military search and rescue officer Walker Kane’s estranged daughter Emily is taken to sate the Grendsluagh’s appetite, he plunges into a race against time through a treacherous underworld of danger. 

Aided by a mythology-obsessed librarian and a daredevil urban explorer with secrets of her own, Walker and his makeshift team must face nightmares at every turn to reach Emily before she is devoured. The deeper they delve into Edinburgh’s serpentine catacomb, the more their resolve is tested—by the mutated monsters of the volcanic depths and the violence of the Cabal. 

To save his daughter, Walker will sacrifice everything—even his own humanity—in a heart-stopping confrontation with the monster at the heart of the labyrinth.

A stand-alone action-adventure horror novella from USA Today bestselling author J.F. Penn. Join the exploration into depths that were never meant to be disturbed. The secrets of the CATACOMB are waiting to be unearthed—if you dare.

Got My Copy Direct!

I received my copy of Catacomb directly through the JFPennBooks website. Even though the shipping took a bit, I am glad to have supported the author directly. The book itself is high quality and I am very much looking forward to reading it.

Good Conquers Evil

I received an advance ARC copy from the author and also purchased it.

Just like with Stephen King, Penn has the gift, to give her readers a heart pounding hellacious read, one that's well researched, puts you right in the pages, full of heart pounding twist and turns and leaves you begging for more.

It's really my type of book, due to the fast pace, it's action packed, full of suspense, tension filled, has you on the seat of your pants, an extra load of twist and turns and like the good very evil theme.

Penn's characters are amazing the good ones or the evil ones, they just come to life, making the story all that better and you're right they're in the midst of the action.

Especially with Catacomb, Penn brings to life the dark catacombs under Edinburgh, with an unlikely crew of Walker Kane the father, Laurel a librarian, Max a student come together to rescue Walker's daughter Emily, from a medieval evil sacrificially offering for the town's yearly prosperity and to know what happens you'll have to read it.

Definitely if you haven't tried J. F. Penn's books before, do yourself a favor and give her a try.
