Terror befalls a rural Chinese village when an ancient evil awakens from its slumber. Within days, the villagers start transforming into horribly deformed blobs of skin with an unslakable hunger for human flesh. The town is soon overrun by an ever-growing mass of skin that devours livestock, houses, and people.
The Chinese government calls in Professor Davis Nickels to investigate the otherworldly horror. A centenarian, occultist, and professor of archaeology, Davis is no stranger to the paranormal, having spent a lifetime battling monsters from beyond human understanding. But age is catching up to the old professor, and this new threat is bigger than anything he’s ever faced. With the help of two graduate students and the Chinese military, he sets off to thwart the ancient menace before it can engulf the world.
Uncaged Review: Really creepy horror where professor Davis Nickels and two of his helpers follow a case all the way to China to investigate a gruesome horror taking over the village and everything in it’s path called the father of flesh. I thought this story read quite well at some points I did think they spoke too much about what was going to happen when they got to the village in China or what they would do to stop this horror spreading to the world. But the author didn’t hold back in any gruesome details or violence so that was a bonus. In all it was a okay read and I wonder if the professor Nickels and company will make another appearance in the future. Reviewed by Jennifer
