Uh, creature in a lost mine?? Yes please! You literally had me at the title! And just look at this beautiful cover work by Kealan Patrick Burke! How captivating.
Below is a very quick read. It doesn’t take long to set up the premise. It does take a bit for the creature to officially make an appearance though. I honestly didn’t mind the drawn out reveal too much because I was so caught up in the unraveling story of the 4 men who ended up being buried alive 50+ years ago.
That being said, it did feel like the creature didn’t get as much time to shine? Like, I kept waiting for more from it, you know? It felt like there were some real missed opportunities. It was a little odd feeling.
Overall, Below is a a quick and entertaining story. Very quick read. A fun cave creature story. I just wish the creature had a accomplished a little more.
