Journalist Daniel Finley is determined to save the impoverished of the world. But the neglected part of humanity has a dark side too. While living under a bridge with the homeless for six months, Daniel witnessed something terrifying. Something that nearly cost him his sanity.
Now, two years later, he’s published a book that exposes a deadly underground cult and its charismatic leader who preaches a dark prophecy. Down in the abandoned subway tunnels exist unimaginable horrors that hunger for human flesh. And in a church of darkness, the cult’s numbers are growing. Soon Daniel’s worst nightmares are coming true. A fanatical army is rising to shed blood on the streets of Boston.
THE SEEKERS by Brian Moreland is an updated version of the story formerly titled The Vagrants. While I enjoyed the original, this version is a thousand times better. This is now a story I can recommend to all horror fans.
Daniel Finley is a journalist who lives under a bridge for six months as a vagrant, while gathering research for a book that he plans to write. However, during his time with his homeless group, another group shows up. The "Seekers" are a cult, recruiting more followers, but Daniel does not fully realize their purpose.
Two years later, after he published his book, not only does the cult reappear in his life, but he finds out that his father is in debt to the local Irish-American mafia. Too late, Daniel finds himself in a territorial battle between the two groups, and what he discovers just might be the death of him.
Just when Daniel manages to escape one danger, he finds himself in a much worse situation. The ending is great, but I wouldn't say no to a sequel.
Brian Moreland does a fantastic job of taking a real issue and turning it into a horrific nightmare with a demonic twist.
