2013 is all about THE Hunger THAT NEVER SLEEPS
There was something else there, curled up inside the corpse, huddled into the body cavity. Another body. It seemed to have made a nest inside the big man; he was pregnant with it.
Evil was captured once, intombed deep in an unmarked grave, but now it has been released.
When Beth wakes up one morning covered in dirt she puts it down to an extreme case of sleepwalking. But when reports of a desecrated grave circulate her night-time wanderings take on a sinister air. Something has changed in her.
Soon Manchester is being plagued by strange sightings and sudden disappearances while all around there lingers the unmistakable stench of death.
