"This was the first book I couldn't put down. Something endeared me to Halloran, I hated Kline, I felt nothing but contempt for Monk and as for Palusinski and the two arabs.... James Herbert has a clever way of drawing the reader into the world he has created where nothing is as it seems."

"I could not put this book down, something, I don't know what, endeared me to Halloran. The way this book is written is very clever, James Herbert never gives anything away, all the time drawing the reader closer into the world he's creating. Brilliant!"

"This is by far Herbert's best! The ominous pagesetting, the spine-tingling story line, the heroic character of Liam Hollaran, the terrifying scenes in Felix Kline's White Room... Sepulchre is just the ultimate chiller experience! I have read Sepulchre about eight years ago, but the reminiscence of this story have remained subdued ever since. But don't start reading until you have a few days off!"

Very good book, lots of darkness in this book. However one major flaw in this book. Being an avid scholar of the Sumerians myself, i find one major flaw. Marduck was a Babylonian belief NOT a Sumerian belief

This was a very very good read, and had me gripped right from the start.
Kline was a too good to be true kind of "guy" for me, and Liam was a kind of cold fish........
Fantastic book, you will feel as if you are there with the happenings as they unfold.EXCELLENT BOOK

I hated this book the first time I read it. Possibly because I had read the Magic Cottage and creed right before it, which i consider to be in the top 5 books of his.

Second time I enjoyed it a hell of a lot more! Great story! and soem genuinly creepy moments
