Trapped in the Mexican jungle, a group of friends stumble upon a creeping horror unlike anything they could ever imagine. Two young couples are on a lazy Mexican vacation–sun-drenched days, drunken nights, making friends with fellow tourists. When the brother of one of those friends disappears, they decide to venture into the jungle to look for him. What started out as a fun day-trip slowly spirals into a nightmare when they find an ancient ruins site . . . and the terrifying presence that lurks there.
I’ve only started reading this and so far, it seems very disjointed. The language is very choppy and I can’t get a good feel of the characters – they seem flat and underdeveloped. The book received mixed reviews on GoodReads so I’m not sure that it will change much but the story line sounds promising. I’ll give it a little more time before giving up.
