Synopsis: Six months ago, the world watched in horror as we lost an American city. 
The Grinder. That's what the survivors of Tucson called the monster. Just one touch, and they became a part of it. It used their bodies as limbs and as weapons. In just a matter of hours, it became huge, a towering monstrosity made entirely out of tens of thousands of people and animals. 
This isn’t behind-the-scenes bullshit from the point of view of the military. This isn’t yet another conspiracy theory about what really happened to Air Force One that night, or about the decision to nuke Tucson. 
This is a rare, eyewitness account from someone who was there, in the midst of the destruction. But most importantly, this is the terrifying truth.

Review: I'd like to thank Promotional Book Tours and the author for giving me a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
This was one scary as heck book, and I usually shy away from horror. The point of view that it was written from made it even more realistic, coming from a first hand experience, and written so well. It was extremely descriptive, and the author brought the one thing into it that I absolutely abhor to see in horror stories...babies, one was exempt from the Grinder. That made it even more realistic for me. 
As much as I wanted to put it down, I couldn't. The story just made me coming back for more till I found out every little detail.
I'm not quite sure I bought into the end, and the reason for it all, but overall this was a great horror book to read.
