Consequences, by John Quick, is a pretty solid debut and one that hints at good things to come as Quick’s career progresses (note: Consequences is independently published, but he’s recently signed with Sinister Grin Press, so I think it’s safe to say Quick is in this for the long haul, or at least I hope he is).

What we have here is a serial killer horror story, based on an urban legend in Quick’s real-life neck of the woods in Tennessee. Back in the 70s, Crazy Freddy killed his entir

Review of CONSEQUENCES by John Quick

A well-written, well-executed, well-played novel, a horror-thriller, coming-of-age, first-love-blossoming, rural redneck insanity [that is not a judgment, that's referring to several recurring characters], CONSEQUENCES is a biting, gory, thrill-a-minute roller coaster ride in which the suspense never lets up.

Author John Quick takes especial care with his young (adolescent, newly high school graduates) characters, making sure that althou

John Quick's Consequences is based on a real-life serial killer legend from his hometown so that coupled with the synopsis for this one had me intrigued and I jumped at the chance to read this one! Everyone has some sort of story or urban legend from when they were growing up, so it was a real treat to see an author take that inspiration and bring it to life in a novel.

John Quick's Consequences opens with a bang, detailing a hor

This was given to me for an honest review.

The book begins with a bang, "Thirty years ago, Crazy Freddy hung his family up with barbed wire and skinned them alive." That is from the description, and that is enough for me to fall into the fabric that was woven by John Quick in his first published novel. The story is well constructed. The violence, brutal, and the action moves along at a fast pace. The characters were well drawn, but the end of the book comes too quickly for me, or rather the reso

Many, many thanks to the author, who provided a free copy of Consequences in exchange for an honest review. He promised a thriller, and have no doubt, he delivered!

Consequences is the story of seven friends whose graduation night party ended in not hangovers and bad decisions, but in tragedy. They thought they had found an abandoned out of the way place to hang out that night - the perfect place to play some music, drink some booze, smoke a bowl and celebrate the firs

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this novel.

Consequences is a perfect summer read, reminiscent of the slasher movies that were so prevalent in the 70's and 80's. While no new ground was broken, it didn't matter because this was such a great story to get lost in. The main characters are typical kids just graduating from high school who have to face off with a sociopathic killer and the cop who wants to help them survive

This book was great! I love horror books and I find them to be rare when they are good. I wish there were more books out there like this one! In this book you are inside the mind of the psychopath. This book remind me of my favorite movie "Freddy Kruger and the Nightmare on Elm Street movies". It was great! * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

This is a terrific debut for Mister John Quick! The pacing and writing are as smooth as a baby's round rosy butt, even when the content is disturbing and freaky! All in all, a wholly enjoyable read!

I’m a little late to the game, having just recently read John Quick’s debut novel, Consequences. Many people in the horror community are already aware of John’s skillful use of language, his knack for characterization, and his cruel dedication to putting his readers through an emotional grinder. If you’re not one of them, you need this book.

High school has come to an end for a small group of friends, and they look forward with anxious hope toward their respective futures, while tryin
