Excerpt:
“A sudden motion caught the comer of his eye. He swung his light to the left. Ten yards away stood a stocky stalagmite, like thousands they had passed to get here. Nothing moved there now. He clenched his jaws, tightening his grip on his rifle. Was there something behind it? Suddenly the stalagmite sprouted a snaking tail and a snouted head, perfectly camouflaged against the oily rock. Even lit up, it was hard to say where the rock began and beast ended. The black eyes swung in his direction. Its mouth opened, revealing row after row of teeth. Ashley cringed as the snout I turned in her direction. It hissed, its breath - reeking of carnage.”
