Summary

Winner of the August Derleth award, Last Days is a chilling and terrifying novel from master of horror Adam Nevill.  

The Temple of the Last Days. The brutal cult with a history of murder, sex and occult dealings destroyed itself during one night of ritualistic violence decades ago. Or so they thought....

Kyle Freeman is an indie filmmaker with no money and few options, so when he lands a commission to make a documentary about The Temple of the Last Days he jumps at the chance. Little does he know that his investigation into the cult's bloody history will lead him into the darkest places he's ever been. As they travel from London and France to Arizona tracing the path of the cult, uncanny events, out-of-body experiences, ghastly artefacts and visits by the merciless 'old friends' plague Kyle and his one-man crew. They soon discover the power of the cult's terrible legacy and that it may be too late for them to escape....

Critic reviews

“His previous novel was the superb The Ritual, but with Last Days he's gone one better. This is riveting, and Nevill is fast becoming Britain's answer to Stephen King.” (The Guardian

“Taking its cue from real-life cults Last Days is an effectively creepy novel that will leave you sleeping with the lights on.” (SFX)

Genuinely frightening

It’s not very often a book has me on edge throughout each chapter, I could not stop thinking about what is going to happen next and to whom! Narration by Chris Dickens is superb as Kyle’s building fear and desperation is felt with each location he travels, this book really has it all and is definitely one of the best horror fiction, if you’ve read The Ritual you certainly enjoy this.
