📕My Review

Julia is a young, beautiful archaeologist on the brink of a discovery of a lifetime in the Valley of the Jinn. Her father Max flies in, along with failed advertising filmmaker Andrew, to share in her moment of glory. Meanwhile, back at the site, young Danish hippie Jorgen is found dead and horribly disfigured. Max, Julia and Andrew begin to experience feelings of increasing unease but put all thoughts of supernatural forces aside to crack on with the job at hand and open the tomb....

This book had so much potential that, unfortunately, wasn't quite realised. I wanted....no, I needed the ghoul to feature more prominently. I wanted to be scared. I wanted to be on the edge of my seat. I wanted to sleep with the lights on. It didn't quite hit the mark.

Ghoul is a good, enjoyable book but it's early potential wasn't entirely fulfilled.

I received an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

📗The Blurb

Twenty-five centuries after its entrance was sealed, an ancient tomb in the fearsome Valley of the Jinn has been uncovered by an earthquake.

Soon afterwards a nearby graveyard is desecrated, and horribly mauled bodies are found.

The mutilation is assumed to be the work of wild beasts, and no one dreams that the archaeologists opening the tomb are moving into terrible danger.

But they will soon learn how wrong they are…

Lurking in the maze of tunnels and caves is a foul creature whose evil has survived for thousands of years, its age-old hunger newly awakened. Only a legendary piece of treasure has the power to protect them…

Will they make it out of the tomb alive?

Or will the Ghoul add more corpses to its tomb of dead trophies?
