Oakfield Review: Jaw dropping moments, big twists, a quick page turner and stunning final act

R.A.Kennedy delivers his verdict on Oakfield

“Cornwall has always been a great setting for the spooky and mysterious. David J. Rodger taps into the beauty of the county and unleashes it’s darker side.  Oakfield is a contemporary SF/Horror that is reminiscent of Doctor Who, and Stephen King whilst still standing out in its originality.  Jaw dropping moments, big twists, all make for a quick page turner and a stunning final act.  What ever you do, do not open the basement.”

– R. A. Kennedy

5* Review of Oakfield by the Discoking

Posted on Amazon 7 May 2015

Totally loved this book. It ties together sci-fi, horror, family drama and Lovecraftian themes beautifully. Once it grabs you the pace is relentless and kept me guessing right up until the last page. Certain scenes from this will stick with me for a long time and I’m looking forward to exploring more of David J Roger’s twisted universe!

Although science fiction and dark fantasy are both bleeding further into the popular imagination there is still a common belief that these genres are niche interests, with fans and products marginalised against the bulwarks of mass fiction.

Reviews of my latest novel, Oakfield, are highlighting an interesting fact – that the book has a large appeal to readers who might not normally consider trying science fiction or what they consider to be horror.

The novelist Angela Brooks wrote: “Set in the near future, [Oakfield] mixes Gothic horror with futuristic monsters whose extraterrestrial cruelties leave the reader gasping for breath. As the story’s characters develop and the problems facing them seem insurmountable I challenge you to try to put this book down! Recommended for Sci-fi and non sci-fi fans alike, David J Rodger has created a fascinating glimpse into the unknown, and has wound together family problems, romance, and horror. Fantastic!Continue reading
