    Review of The Hunter From The Woods by Robert McCammon

    The Hunter from the Woods by Robert R. McCammon My rating: 5 of 5 stars This is a collection of stories about Michael Gallatin, the protagonist from The Wolf’s Hour. This gem fills in some of the holes in Gallatin’s life. I knew this book would be coming out, so a few months ago I re-read The Wolf’s Hour to again familiarize myself with the star, Michael Gallatin. It’s not every day that one reads a book about a werewolf/spy in WWII, but I originally read it over 20 years ago. I enjoyed the second read as much as the first and this time, I had the added excitement of…

    Review-The Hole by William Meikle

    Review by Recluse The Hole by William Meikle My rating: 5 of 5 stars It begins with a hum….that turns into a scream as Meikle puts the pedal to the metal in this out of control rollercoaster ride of a tale that packs non-stop action, skin crawling scares and a few nods to such diverse sources as Quatermass and James Herbert’s THE FOG, as it races to a finish that will leave you gasping with tears in your ears. Highest recommendation!   *click cover to purchase*

    Review of On the Lips of Children by Mark Matthews

    On the Lips of Children by Mark Matthews My rating: 4 of 5 stars On the Lips of Children was not what I expected at all. Since reading one of Mr. Matthew’s previous books, (Stray), way back when I first got my Kindle, I’ve been meaning to read more of his work. When he offered a free copy of this one, in exchange for an honest review, I said yes. I’m glad I did! “Stray” was a good read but this novella (short novel?) is more up my alley as I am a horror-lovin’ gal. The story begins with a couple (Macon and Erin) staying at a hotel with their…

    Review of Domain of the Dead by Iain McKinnon

    Blurb: The world is dead, devoured by a plague of rasping corpses. In a decaying city a band of survivors are barricaded inside a warehouse surrounded by a sea of shambling putrefaction. But now the food is almost gone and the occupants are faced with the slow death of starvation or the undead outside. As Sarah stands on the edge of the warehouse roof preparing to step off into oblivion she spots a glimmer of hope. In the distance she spies a helicopter approaching the city. Is this the salvation they had long since given up on? Review: After a breathtaking beginning, McKinnon’s Domain of the Dead puts a slight…
