***I RECEIVED A COPY OF THIS BOOK FROM THE AUTHOR IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW.***This book was difficult for me to finish. The storyline was a common one of good guys versus bad guys but it takes a very long time to tell a short story.The characters are not easy to relate to from the first ...

Beware of the gingerbread cookies!! This whole cute, humorous and charming tale of love and misunderstanding gave me that “feel good” Christmas spirit. I was giggling with the banter and antics of the sisters, the poor boy who just wanted to fulfill his Christmas Eve wish and the father who had ...
Jurassic Dead (2014)

It's good, but a lack of proofreading lets it down. Also, Zombie dinosaurs I can believe in, but the motorcycle chase at the end just defies all laws of motorcycle physics. And you can't start a motorcycle by repeatedly twisting the key in the ignition, that's just crazy talk. You either kick-sta...

Frozen Charlotte (2000)
3.79 of 5 Votes: 3
Though this book is written in quite a simplistic, and at times boring, style, it's still quite an excellent plot! The entire book is clearly well thought out, well researched, and all together quite scary! An excellent piece, a bit like trashy genre fiction for those who like that, or want a bre...
The Last American Vampire - FREE PREVIEW (THE FIRST XX CHAPTERS) (2014)
3.74 of 5 Votes: 2
This book first came to my attention because of the cover.It’s artistic and enjoyable. “Last American Vampire” impresses beyond the fact that it covers so much time after the Civil War. What did it for me was the shift in periods, the flashbacks, the introduction of new historical figures. I enjo...

Exorcist Road (2014)
4.51 of 5 Votes: 5
It you’re looking for a demonic possession-exorcism story EXORCIST ROAD is about as good as it gets. This sub-genre of horror tends to be one of my least favorite but since this one was written by Jonathan Janz I figured it would be worth reading. And is it ever. Janz presents a story of characte...
JournalStone's 2010 Warped Words, For Twisted Minds (2010)
4.08 of 5 Votes: 3
I got a free Copy of this through First Reads! I have to say at first I wasn't exactly sure what to expect from it. I was afraid that the stories might be mediocre or more of a childish set of scary stories, but I found that they are genuinely very well written and gruesome enough where I think i...
The Boy Who Killed Demons (2014)
3.65 of 5 Votes: 1
Won through Goodreads First ReadsI thought that the way the book was written (journal style) was an interesting way to tell the story, but it meant that there was no real action or suspense. The story was very slow to start and lacked interesting action scenes. A lot of the action and events seem...
Infinity House (2012)
3.48 of 5 Votes: 2
Cool looking cover. I have heard about the author from other author reviews and he keeps coming up when I look for books by authors I read on Amazon, so I figured what the hell. I was not disappointed. This short novella had dead rotting bodies, maggots and body fluids oh my. The gross out factor...
Baby's First Book of Seriously Fucked-up Shit (2011)
3.68 of 5 Votes: 2
This book is hilarious.Sexy cowboys and cowgirls having apocalyptic-scale super sex. An orgy in the garden of Eden. A b-movie style short featuring a giant woman and a massive tongue ;). Beauty pageants for foetuses...Robert Devereaux is quite simply an awesome writer. I can't recommend this coll...
The Goodreads Killer (2013)
2.24 of 5 Votes: 1
A really weird book: it purports to be satire, and yet it is so awkwardly written. I kept thinking how much better this story would be if it were written by Stephen King (and yes, I read it all the way to the dismal end).First, the rather heavy-handed use of Latin-derived names:The mad writer, Th...
