Devil’s Road

This week I found myself really in need of a great, immersive slab of escapism and by sheer chance a delivery from NewCon Press brought me Gary Gibson’s slightly unhinged, high octane new novella, Devil’s Road. Kicking off with a prison break, the story rattles through 130 pages of action and skulduggery and culminates in a Wacky Races style road race around an island populated by extremely nasty Kaiju monsters.

With nods to Pacific Rim, Godzilla, Escape From New York, Mad Max, Death Race 2000 and a bunch of other action classics, Devil’s Road was exactly the kind of Saturday afternoon movie adventuresome fun I was looking for. My only criticism is I wanted more of the priests. The priests absolutely rocked.
