A slow start, but then again you really do need to set up all the details for a good story. This title was easy to read and very well written, like i said slow at the start but within a blink of an eye the story pumped up and kept me glued to the pages. It was a nice supernatural horror, filled with some interesting twist's, I enjoyed this title and the ending was very unexpected with the good vs. evil twist. The author has written a great story that was easy to follow, I would recommend this b...more
This started off slowly and I was beginning to think nothing would happen then suddenly it moves up a notch when The Frighteners make their appearance. Then I found it to be a real page turner that I could not wait to get back to. I'll definitely read more by this author

The small, minor beginnings sure hide the apocalyptic horror that deals with crime, murder, revenge and the supernatural and ends with saints, demons and the doubtful future of mankind. Another masterpiece by this master of horror
A good supernatural horror with an original twist on the nature of good and evil. Compelling central characters, but does wane a little towards the end.
I thought the book was very cleverly written, and contained a different twist compared to other horror novels. In the middle it does seem to wane, however he uses this to create suspense of what is to come. I enjoyed this book particulalry the ending of the fight of good and evil, and the unexpected outcome.
