The Lost Army - Christopher Golden

A bit on the flat side. A lot of short, stilted, sentences at times, that read like it has been dumbed down for 5 year olds to read. Perhaps it had been butchered down to size by editor and/or writer to fit in plenty of Mignola artwork, and for a novel, there is plenty.

Avoid anyone in the Middle East area called Hazred, and don't go on away team missions with Hellboy.

Evil sorcerers, giant spiders, jackal-men amulets, and 50,000 desert zombies. Even if you are a super-competent MI5 field agent, or allied soldier you are in for a world of hurt in this sort of scenario.

2 out of 5
