The debut novel from Chris Roberts, The Long, Lost Exit Home, is a new addition to the great horror sci-fi traditions of Stephen King and Dean Koontz as an alien invasion sci-fi horror thriller with forbidden love.
“The reader encounters pulse pounding, unspeakable razor slashing horror in this terrifying thriller about the invasion of ferocious giant creatures that leaves you with a hair raising twist ending of delicious surprise!” –Nostalgic Productions
When people begin to disappear in a California coastal town, where a series of gruesome murders and the most unimaginable events take place, a visiting nineteen-year-old heroin addict, Laura Masterson, becomes embroiled in a dark conspiracy of parasitic aliens and biological monstrosities.
While she searches for her father, one of the many missing, she stumbles upon the discovery of an unstoppable invasion of ferocious subterranean creatures that emerge from the sea at nightfall to prey upon the local waterfront populace.
Finding help from a rebellious, street wise juvenile, both Laura—who encounters an obsessive intimate romance from a past high school heartthrob—and her girl friend, team up in order to escape a serial killer and uncover a connection to the murders that may involve others willing to kill to keep the killer’s identity hidden. If they survive, they may face a future more horrific than death.
“When night falls, and you’re fast asleep—
The sea will unleash nightmares, that will come to feast!”
“The entire story is terrifying and will keep you on the edge of your seat wanting to turn the page to see what is going to happen next. There is forbidden love, killings and a terrifying future for those who survive. For anybody who is into horror movies or stories like ‘Alien vs Predator’ or ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’, I would recommend this to you because it is quite graphic as such. There are many twists and turns throughout the entire book and you will be left wide eyed and shocked. The book was well put together and the author obviously has a knack for this genre of stories. The author is quite talented and has a way of making you SEE exactly what is going on in the story and being able to picture it in your head and not just putting words on a page. Well done…” —Big McGaffer
“If you want a non-stop thrill ride that will make your heart race you should try ‘The Long, Lost Exit Home’, a gripping piece by Chris Roberts. Be forewarned, this is not your average sci-fi horror novel! The main character Laura Masterson has come from a life full of its own dark horror in the form of substance abuse. Her life only gets more complicated from there. Roberts describes, in vivid detail, scenes of graphic violence, sadistic murder, revenge, and forbidden love. I haven't even mentioned the alien monster sea creatures yet. Yes, that's right, there are even alien monster sea creatures who invade the quiet town of Sealand set on the coast of California. While this story will push boundaries with even the most experienced horror fan, it is in my opinion a fantastic read! I will definitely be on the lookout for another adrenaline pumping thrill ride from Chris Roberts!...” —Fore
