I found this book on Netgalley and the description intrigued me. I had never heard of the author or the publisher but that did not stop me from giving it a shot. I was not disappointed.
14 is a story about a group of tenants that live in an old apartment building in Los Angeles. The story centers around a young man named Nate. He was looking for a place to live when this apartment building was mentioned to him. Low rent that included all utilities! For some one with a dead end job that does not pay well this was a great opportunity.
After Nate moves in, he discovers some interesting and weird things about the apartment building. Rooms padlocked and painted shut. Every room that was not locked or chained was completely different, not designed as most apartment buildings would be. Nate discovers that most of his neighbors have noticed as well.
They team up to unravel the mystery of the building only to discover a deep, dark secret that not only affect their own lives but could affect the entire world!
This was one of those books that I did not want to put down. Hidden rooms, mysterious padlocked and chained doors, the thrill of discovering the unknown. All of it kept me intrigued all the way to the end of the book.
This is the first non Christian novel I have reviewed so I will caution my blog readers that there is some profanity in the book as well as a few sexual encounters, though they were not very graphic.
Bottom line on this book: if you enjoy a mystery with the unknown and a Sci-Fi twist, this book is for you!
