I managed my expectations pretty well for reading this one. I wanted regular horror and got it. It's October, after all, and isn't this the season to enjoy a run of scary?

Or is it simply the desire to see evil as plain as day, to root for the underdogs, to gather up all the misfits and see all the jerks and the ultraviolent assholes of the world get their comeuppance?

Maybe a bit of both.

Fortunately, there's a lot of bigger-than-life characters in this small town and the good guys are good pretty much all the way through. The bad, however, are really bad. :) And did I mention a recurring string of gruesome murders in a small town known for it's spectacular Halloween festivals meant to scare your pants off?

Yeah, well, aside from a few great scenes and pretty epic buildup, I'm gonna have to hold my horses to see the grand explosion because this is a trilogy!

That's fine, of course. Sometimes a tale is very long. I just have to wonder what it might have been like to have this as one gigantic tome like the good old days of epic horrors instead of the bite-sizes publishers think we want. *shrug*

So maybe I'll just pretend it's one book. That's the ticket! And people think that readers are without imagination! I'll show them! ( )

Narrated by Tom Weiner (yes, really). A five-star narration, and a very good, compelling, intense, and wild novel.
4 stars, very recommended. ( )

probably better than 3 stars, but not really a 4 ( )

Great horror story. Has so many things going on that keep you wanting more. Love the characters, the setting in a small town, excellent book ( )

Immediately after he says that, Billy is seized and dragged screaming into the darkness. But... things are not what they seem.

This is a great story. There is definitely something supernatural and spooky going on in town, but we aren't sure exactly what it is.

The town experienced true darkness in 1976 during the time of the serial killer known as the Reaper. Some men from town decided the Bone Man (a drifter who also happened to be an African American) was guilty and they strung him up. Now, 25 years later, the kids who were friends with the Bone Man and believed him innocent, are grown up. Some of the men who killed the Bone Man are still around. And the town is visited by monsters yet again. (The recurrence through time reminded me a bit of the Stephen King book, It - but maybe because I just finished reading it.)

This story is filled with scary and suspenseful moments. Also a lot of gore and bloodshed. And I loved every minute of it.

One thing I noticed in other people's reviews, was complaints about the editing. There were a lot of errors, grammatical and otherwise. I don't know if this is just in the e-book version, but it was a bit distracting. Not enough to make me dislike the book or stop reading or anything, but it might bother some people.

This is the first book in a trilogy and I am enjoying book 2 just as much. :) ( )
