This is an omnibus edition containing two novels and one shorter story.

Nightlife:
Fun, contemporary mainstream horror, with the scary sort of vampires.

It's set in an alternate New Haven, CT. Not sure why the names have been changed to protect the guilty. We're in the city of "New Harbor" - which has a university that's not called Yale, and a secret society that's The Order of Sormen, not Skull & Bones. I think anyone who's spent time in New Haven would get a kick out of this.

Beth is a barten

Where there are predators... you might also expect to find the apex predator.

This book continues the story begun in "Nightlife," following Beth and Jack, vampire hunters. Here, they've gotten their slaying down to a science - literally. However, just when they start seeing hints of something disturbing and possibly more powerful than the beings they've been hunting down, they run into opposition: not in the form of the inhuman monsters they've gotten accustomed to, but in the form of human monst

Book Review originally published here: http://www.iheartreading.net/book-tou...

This collection includes three books: Nightlife, Hazardous Material and As The Worm Turns. Each book is a stand-alone but together they form an interesting and enjoyable horror collection.

In Nightlife, Beth is a bartender at a local nightclub who has some boyfriend issues – he wants her to drop her job and move in with him. But Beth has little time to think about her relationship when her best friend disappears and st

Nightlife: As the Worm Turns
by Matthew Quinn Martin
The third book the series brings you to another aspect of the stories. The fear and terror of the demons of the Nightlife: Hazardous Material, the violence and destruction vampires of Nightlife has not prepared me for the continuing development of obscenely deadly and destructive monsters in As the Worm Turns. What right does man have to face creatures that can possess the mind, giving dreams and fantasies as they destroy the body for their ben

In Nightlife, we are introduced to Jack Jackson, a vet who has spent years chasing and trying to eradicate “The Night Angels”, creatures akin to vampires but, as Jack puts it, “Not as sexy as the movies make vampires out to be”.

In actuality, they are vampires in the sense that they steal the lifeforce of those they hunt, but these creatures are something else, them, creatures that make their targets see what they want, luring them in with their deepest desires.

Nightlife: Night Terrors bundles together three stories, two novel length and one novella length, set in the Nightlife series. The well-written horror series follows veteran monster hunter Jack Jackson and novice Beth Becker as they seek out and kill bloodsucking creatures who feast on humans for their blood, and The Division, a secret organization hunting both the creatures and Jack & Beth.

In Nightlife, Beth starts out ignorant to the existence of “The Night Angels”, creatures who kill huma

This is a really good book with three intertwined stories. It's all about creatures that go bump in the night and the hunters that chase them to protect humanity. I really enjoyed each of the stories, two full length novels and a novelette that really caught my attention. I couldn't put the book down, action, adventure , blood and gore kept me on the edge of my seat. I will definitely keep my eye open for more from this author, I want more!!

Jack and Beth continue to hunt down any hives of the worm like creatures that are sort of like strange versions of vampires. They can look like anyone, so it's hard to to know some times if it's a worm or the person you are thinking of. It makes it hard to make sure you are killing the right person or to not let emotions get the better of you when your staring down someone you love and you know it's not them.

Jack and Beth are also on the run from The Division a group of government officials who

This is a vampire tale and it isn't. It is a tale of a millennium old conspiracy, complete with a host of identical agents of a secret agency. It is also a love story.

This is an interesting book. You get shades of X Factor, leavened with a smidge of Twilight and a pinch of Indiana Jones. Now that I have spewed forth enough metaphoric flotsam perhaps I can move forward.

Martin writes an entertaining tale regardless of my reviewer's drivel or is that dribble. The story moves with good speed. The p

Initial Thoughts: Wow, another wild ride. Though there were quite a lot more players this time than in the previous novel, more mini points of view, they didn't distract but pause the story, giving another perspective. In some ways it was less horror and more thriller - finding more about the Division, the origin of the creatures and such. Though we know so much more now, I feel as if we have only scratched the surface. I felt there was more personal touches to it, more sentimental moments. Just ...more

This is three short stories rolled into one, each able to be read as standalone novellas. The writing is impressive and each tale was terrifying! There's monsters, vampires, and a plethora or creepy creatures...who could ask for more? The writer used some familiar character tropes but he made them frightening and fresh. There were parts of the stories when I actually had chills! The stories are well-plotted and paced. The characters were relatable/likable. And most importantly, I was scared! Thi ...more

Haunting, harrowing, heartbreaking. Matthew Quinn Martin has done it again, first with HAZARDOUS MATERIAL and then with AS THE WORM TURNS, following Beth and Jack (and Blood!) on a darker hunt than they ever expected. Can't wait for the third book (there is a third book, right? Don't leave me hanging!!!)

Matthew Quinn Martin was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania and raised in New Haven, Connecticut. However, it wasn’t until he moved to Manhattan that he realized he was a writer. These days, he lives on a small island off the North Atlantic coast of the United States where it gets quiet in the winter…perhaps too quiet.
