Whilst in Italy, a strange package arrives for Jacob but his friends Ben and Mac get to it first. With this package brings a most old and dreaded evil, that both lovers must face together. An intense journey, about battling evil and learning to cope with the aftermath of such evil.

Dallas Coleman, you have a new fan. I am amazed at how much I enjoyed Diggers. One of the best books I have read all year, the story was rich in characterization and plot. The whole idea was original and enticing, so throught-provoking and fascinating. Iíve never been nervous reading a story, itís so thrilling and almost borderline creepy. The story is intense, but with all the dark themes in the story, the author had the characters being witty and hilarious too. I laughed out loud with some of the witty comebacks, and the use of foul language had me grinning.

Not only did I love the story, characters and witty lines. But I also appreciated the heartache in this story. I was absolutely stunned at the end, and as much as I didnít want a certain event to happen, it did and it honestly almost made me cry.

Truly a wonderful story, and I hope Ms. Coleman gives us a sequel. Because I want these characters back. Very highly recommended.
