Superb review of The Black Lake on Goodreads – compared to John Wyndham

Review of The Black Lake by Ade Couper via Goodreads

I caught this via a mention onTwitter about my novel The Black Lake. A reader compared this work to John Wyndham. Very pleased!



This is short, but nonetheless very good.

“The Black Lake” is the story of an expedition to a remote Scottish Island to study unusual weather events, 10 years after a catastrophe known as Yellow Dawn has seriously weakened humanity. However, disturbing legends haunt this island….

This is well-written, parts of the descriptive prose reminding me of John Wyndham. David J Rodger also comes up with some lovely turns of phrase, such as “The absence of sound was deafening.” Quint-the main character- is well-defined,& his reactions to situations completely out of his experience is believable. I liked the touched of Lovecraftian lore which permeate this story too.

This is the 1st book of David J Rodger that I’ve read, but I doubt it will be the last.

Worthy of your attention.
