    Review – Brew by Bill Braddock

    Ever been to a big college town on a football Saturday night? Loud drunks glut the streets, swaggering about in roaring, leering, laughing packs, like sailors on shore leave. These nights crackle with a dark energy born of incongruity; for beneath all that smiling and singing sprawls a bedrock of malice. Erupting from this mean soil is BREW, a novel of survival horror that unfolds in a single, apocalyptic night, when hard-partying College Heights swaps beer pong and karaoke for arson, murder, and cannibalism. An embattled cast of unlikely heroes, including a charismatic drug dealer, a disenfranchised army vet, and a smart, tough-as-leather girl, struggles to survive, while Herbert Weston,…

    Review of The Preserve by Patrick Lestewka

    The Preserve by Patrick Lestewka My rating: 4 of 5 stars 3.5 rounded up to 4 stars! I’m conflicted about this book that I read with my Shelfari group this week. I admit, I probably would not have chosen this one for myself. This is a story about Vietnam vets and oh so much more. The first half of the book covers both a “now” and a “then” segment for each veteran. I do enjoy that type of format, but I dislike getting bogged down in a bunch of military stuff. Luckily, this book didn’t do too much of that. The second half of the novel is where things started…
