In the war-weary year of 1940, just one rundown hospital survives London's collapse. Sister Barbara, a nun and volunteer nurse, inspires hope in her patients, but that faith is shaken when an unidentified aircraft explodes near the hospital. The half-eaten corpse beneath the mangled wreckage appears to corroborate the pilot's story that some sort of "tentacle-monster" attacked his plane. However, Sister Barbara pushes these dangers aside and plunges beyond the rubble when the man she loves disappears in the wastelands. She discovers a bloodstained beauty in his place-but the girl's outward innocence hides a voracious sexual appetite, and an even more disturbing secret. One by one, the terrified patients vanish from their beds. Titillating tentacles lick the hospital walls at night. And the dreams, always the dreams, drawing Sister Barbara deeper into a well of madness. She suspects she and the other women at the hospital are transforming into something... unholy. Sister Barbara knows she must figure out what before the evil in their midst consumes them all.

Tuesday Apocalypse was so good! I loved it.
I was automatically hooked by the blurb, and the book definitely followed through. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It was a bit creepy, but so captivating. I dived in head first into the world that Miss Cross created. I liked all of the crazy characters.
The book was set during the time of Hitler and the Nazis. So while all of the killing was going on, aliens was taking over the characters. I really enjoyed the twist and turns through out this book. It always kept me guessing.
I love the writing style of this book. It was written in a diary format. Usually I can't get a feel for first person books, but I really liked it. It was action packed, and there was never a dull time. Between people being killed, going missing, or being taken over by the aleans, it was all so exciting.
Over all I really liked the flow, plot, characters, and just the book itself. I definitely recommend this book. You will be entertained.
