A character-driven blend of science fiction and horror, KC Jones’ Black Tide is like a combination of Stephen King’s The Mist and A Quiet Place.

Named a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award, this thrilling book takes place on a seemingly ordinary day at the beach. Little did Mike and Beth know that their peaceful world was about to change forever.

Mike and Beth were strangers until the night of a meteor shower. A chance encounter turned them into neighbors, and a shared bottle of champagne brought them closer. They both craved human connection, and that night ignited something more between them.

However, their euphoria is short-lived when they discover that the meteor shower caused widespread destruction. But that was only the beginning. Something much larger and far more terrifying is unfolding.

Stranded on the Oregon coast, their situation becomes dire when they lose their car key and eerie screams fill the air. As the tide rises and unspeakable horrors surround them, these two troubled souls must fight for their lives in a nightmarish and apocalyptic scenario.

“Black Tide delivers heart-stopping horror that will leave you breathless. I couldn’t put it down.” –Jonathan Janz, author of The Siren and the Specter

“Black Tide” by Casey Jones: An Apocalyptic Tale

“Black Tide” by Casey Jones is a unique apocalyptic novel that sets itself apart from others in its genre. Unlike most apocalyptic stories, the novel takes us on a journey from the very beginning of the cataclysmic event, experiencing it alongside the two main characters.

These characters, despite being unprepared and lacking any special skills, captivate readers. They are an unlikely duo, bound together by their pasts and their shared experiences. Neither of them is satisfied with their current circumstances, which adds an extra layer of depth to the story.

What makes “Black Tide” truly terrifying is the absence of rules governing the apocalyptic events. As the characters stumble upon new challenges and threats, readers are left in suspense, discovering these dangers alongside them. The tension-filled, action-packed moments will leave you breathless, unable to put the book down.

Unlike typical apocalyptic scenarios involving zombies or aliens, “Black Tide” presents a different kind of threat. The creatures in this world are both invisible and deadly. Our protagonists spend most of their time in a vehicle on a beach by the Pacific Ocean, fearing the creatures that hunt by sound. This predicament, combined with the constant danger and the rising tide that threatens to drown them, creates a hopeless and harrowing situation.

Throughout the novel, the characters must rely on each other to survive, making the story more character-driven. We learn about their pasts, their motivations, and how they came to be in their current situation. The journey to survival is anything but easy, as they face numerous obstacles and question their own fates.

“Black Tide” evokes the same feelings as two well-known horror works. The first is Stephen King’s “Cujo,” as the characters find themselves trapped in a vehicle, surrounded by danger on all sides. They are unable to escape, constantly aware that stepping outside the vehicle could mean certain death.

The book also shares similarities with the movie “A Quiet Place,” where the characters must remain silent to avoid attracting deadly creatures. In “Black Tide,” the protagonists must make every effort to stay quiet, as any noise could lead to their demise.

However, “Black Tide” distinguishes itself through Jones’ unique twist on these established scenarios. It is an entirely original creation that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The author’s ability to maintain tension, deliver thrilling action, and explore the characters’ inner struggles is commendable.

Without giving too much away, I can say that the creatures outside the car are not the only threat in this world. As the story unravels, we learn the reasons behind the events and the origin of these creatures, which adds another layer of intrigue and suspense.

“Black Tide” by Casey Jones is an exceptional novel that will captivate readers from start to finish. It is a gripping, action-packed, and chilling tale that will leave you questioning the characters’ survival and the fate of humanity. I highly recommend reading it and experiencing the immersive world created by Jones.
