Paulie and Stoner aren’t bad seeds; they’re just a little too smart for their own good. They stole their first car in kindergarten, and as for the homemade rocket launcher in Stoner’s garage … well, it’s best just not to ask.

With 9th grade just around the corner, Paulie and Stoner find themselves on the wrong side of some real bad kids, an older band of w​hite supremacists...more

The sins of the past haunt the present in this engaging tale of small town evils. Combines coming of age with horror, mystery, action/thriller and a retro 80s feel into a nicely layered novel that will appeal to a wide range of readers.
Will Millar is an author to watch.

I am very excited to bring you Will Millar’s debut novel, Infernal Machines. It is a highly intricate piece of fiction that left me totally unhinged. I never would have been involved with letting the world know about Miller’s work if it had not been for a tweet I saw on Twitter to sign up for his blog tour. I jumped at the chance because as an aspiring writer I know how important it is to get your work known, it’s even twice the challen...more

Will Millar’s “Infernal Machines” is touted as a horror novel, but it’s more than that. Sure, it’s horror … but there are elements of drama, mystery, sci-fi, occult, action, and more so thoroughly threaded throughout that it seems like calling it horror sells it short.

Describing it isn’t easy, either. At various points, I was reminded of Stephen King’s “It” and “Needful Things,” “The Goonies,” and pretty much every monster movie I ever watched. Yet, it isn’t just derivative regurgitation. It has...more

Infernal Machines is a page from a classic horror movie. Only this isn't a haunted house--it's a haunted town. Not by ghosts or ghouls, necessarily, but by people--the strange, the evil, the ones with control of an even greater evil. The focus on the characters makes it strong and gives you a peek into the psyches of several very different types of people. The Nazi-next-door. The video-game-playing good boy. The dark magic shop owner. It takes a...more

Infernal Machines has a lot of elements to it. It's a long book, but the author keeps you interested with action, mystery, horror and the P.O.V. switches help too.

The characters: There is a large cast of characters, but I feel that they each were developed very well. Getting into their heads is easy when you can see things from their P.O.V. Each character has a whole world of their own while they are simultaneously dealing with the strange happenings in their town.

The setting: The town almost se...more

I'm giving it 4 stars because the story itself is very entertaining and well-written with great characters.
If half stars were allowed (ahem, Goodreads) I would lower my rating to 3.5 due to the need for a good editor. Bad editing is a pet peeve of mine, it tends to take me right out of the story, and this was a really good story. A lot of the editing problems were obviously things where the author had planned on switching out a phrase or word for something else, and simply didn't delete the ori...more

I thought this was a well written piece, so well, I feel as if I have to read it again to understand everything. I would, if it wasn't so long. I felt like this book was 2 books in one. The first half was immensely good. The second half was a little boring and too much action for me. It felt a little rushed, like the author took a couple of chapters to explain everything. All I all, it was a great horror novel that I would recommend to others.

Engrossing and spooky. I thought the epilogue was a bit predictable, but still loved the ride!

Greetings and Salutations, y'all. I wrote a book called Infernal Machines, which my brother Jimmmy reviewed favorably somewhere online. I've also written a number of short stories and articles. I'm currently working on a new book, which will probably be less rife with bad grammar and typographical errors, although maybe not.
