Everything about this book captured my imagination from first sight.
From the front cover, to the first page, to final line, The Ark stood out and enchanted me. The author does not hang around and plunges you straight into intense, terrifying action from the first line. I do not remember reading a debut novel from such a young author that gripped me and scared me like this book did. The characters come to life and live in your head and you can not help but become engrossed in the frightening situation unfolding around them. Beautifully written, suspenseful and nail bitingly wicked... especially the tear jerking ending which completely shocked me. The name Andrew Powell will be on the tips of horror fans tongues for years to come with this brilliantly bold statement that shows the horror genre is back on track. A great read!!
