One of the best horror novels ever written

The title of this review says it all. Intense, well paced, terrifying, visceral and unforgettable. I'll certainly be seeking more of this author's work.

Fast paced, gory zombie action. Keene's zombie work isn't terribly original, but his writing and well developed characters catch you from the start, and the story of a desperate survivor who ultimately winds up as part of a band of refugees who take ...more

An engaging (if predictable) thriller. Flynn's storytelling, pacing, detail and dialogue are all top notch, and it's a joy to encounter such psychologically complex characters. The mystery aspect of the novel leaves something to be desired, and it's ...more

“The sound of a feeding was impossible to ignore.  Cross heard the smack of teeth, and sucking sounds so loud he swore they came from there in the room.  He heard pained moans and animal barks.  It amused him to think that once, so very long ago, these creatures had been painted as romantics by fiction writers.  They were animals, pure and simple, vicious of heart, evil of spirit, malign in their sole drive to wipe humanity out. ”
Steven Montano, Blood Skies

“He prays with them, only it isn’t prayer, not truly, for there are no gods there, no deities except for the soot angels, twisted succubi whose likenesses are cast upon a slab of stone: a mongrel avatar, an orgy of dark seraphim twisted together in a violent erotic dance.  Claws and teeth and bat’s wings fuse together.”
Steven Montano, Crown of Ash

“He’s tired of watching his friends die,” Cross said quietly.  “We’re all tired of watching friends die.  It doesn’t make him special.” “Well,” Cristena said, “it doesn’t make it easy, either.”
Steven Montano, Blood Skies
