Book Blog Tour & Book Review: Deep Level by Richard E. Rock

Ok, so horror is not my usual genre, but I fancied a change and the synopsis of this book enticed me – One, because it based in London (my home city) and the main characters sounded like an interesting bunch.

Take a look at the synopsis…

Deep Level

When Rich stumbles upon a secret Victorian underground network, he sees not only a great historical discovery, but also a way out of his humdrum life. He convinces three of his friends to join him, and together they venture deep into the maze of tunnels beneath London’s bustling streets.

A rude girl made good. An aspiring writer. A cinema usher from Wales. A bookseller who dreams of being an urban explorer. Four friends trapped together in one nightmarish situation as they realise some things are kept secret for a reason.

Will any of them manage to escape the horror that lurks in the DEEP LEVEL?

My Thoughts

What a refreshing set of characters! It was so realistic, the story is told through 4 friends who are from completely different backgrounds, not your stereotypical bunch of friends that you see in films or I usually read about in other books.

Also, the fact that they were from various races and cultures made it even more real, because this is what a lot of friendships in London look like (thanks Richard for making it so realistic)

I fell in love with Ffion immediately within the first few pages, the other women grew on me, but I really couldn’t bring myself to like Rich, much – maybe it’s the ‘mum‘ in me, that couldn’t see past his failures as a father – but none of us are perfect…

The story is well paced and the writing style is SO good, it jumps back and forth between characters and flashbacks from the past and back to the present day – this format keeps the narrative fresh and truly keeps you on your toes.

I was hooked from the end of Chapter 1 and the tension grows so intense but is sprinkled delicately with humour in just the right places.

Some parts are super scary and what these characters encounter, I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.

A must read book for horror fans – an excellent book!

I will look out for more from this author in the future

Richard E. Rock – Author of Deep Level Book

Author Bio – By day, Richard E. Rock works as a commercial scriptwriter for radio and contributes ideas to Viz Comic. But by night…he writes horror.

He was inspired to do this after experiencing a series of particularly ferocious nightmares. After waking up and realising he could turn these into utterly horrible stories, he started deliberately inducing them. Based in Wales, he lives with his girlfriend and their cat. If you’re looking for him, you’ll probably find him wedged up against the barrier at a heavy metal gig, for that is his natural habitat

Keep up with Richard…
