Nightmare City by Andrew Klavan

Author:Andrew Klaven
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Date of publication: November 2013

Tom Harding only wants the truth. But the truth is becoming more dangerous with every passing minute.
As a reporter for his high school newspaper, Tom Harding was tracking the best story of his life—when, suddenly, his life turned very, very weird. He woke up one morning to find his house empty . . . his street empty . . . his whole town empty . . . empty except for an eerie, creeping fog—and whatever creatures were slowly moving toward him through the fog.

 As Autumn has mentioned before, once in a while we have good luck with random library picks.  I knew nothing going into this book, but it looked interesting enough to download.  In general, I have enjoyed books from publisher, Thomas Nelson.  Nightmare City was no exception. 

I liked Tom Harding and his need to find the truth.  It was ultimately what helped him figure out what was going on in the end.  It's kind of a hard book to talk about without giving too many plot points away.  It's really a journey that you have to take along with Tom and learn the truth along with him.  The reader is dropped right into the nightmare with Tom and the action keeps going right up until the end.  This is a book that definitely kept me guessing.  Just when I thought I knew what was going on, a twist was thrown at me and I found I was wrong.

I would definitely recommend trying this book out.  It's a fairly clean YA book and would probably be OK for 14 and over.  The audiobook is narrated by the author and he did a great job with it.  I know I am anxious to see what else Mr. Klavan has to offer!
