I have two words for you: beach book. And no, that’s not a bad thing. Much to the dismay of some out there, not all books are written to grant some insight into your psyche or to reveal the mysteries of life. Some books are written for the sole purpose of entertainment. There are no hidden meanings and subliminal messages; it’s just a story, plain and simple. And while Breed sure ain’t literature, it is a good time.

I quite enjoyed Breed. It started off as clichéd (witches summoning spirit guides? With crystals?), but that became part of its charm as the story progressed.

I read this book first a long time ago and I liked it much better then. As time has passed I have become,I think, more sophisticated and more discerning of what I think a good book is.

An okay read. I enjoyed the fact that it was set in St. Augustine. Being a Floridian and having visited St. Augustine on several occasions it was fun to read about it. The storyline was okay, the plot was good enough to keep me reading. Not a lot of 'horror', but some moments.

Goingback definitely redeemed himself to me after my last read of Darker Than Night. Crota set the bar. A page-turner of a read pitting Native American folklore with a skin-peeling demi-god!

I really enjoyed this, it was a bit Lovecraftian, which I liked. And I felt, Owl did a great job of making the location come to life.
