I'm willing to go out on a limb here and say that Mr. Hale is one of the most compellingly disturbing masters of horror to have come out of nowhere in the last few decades.

The rest are just piddling around with character studies of people who have lost a little here or there or people who like to cause a little misery. Some just have monsters to survive or monsters to be.

Mr. Hale takes everything much further than that. He goes epic. Great characters, deep imaginings, fully connected worldbuild

In quite a nutshell, it's safe to say A LOT has happened since the beginning of this series, The Bones of the Earth, that is. And what a journey it's been. The fifth book in the series, The Agony After, is an essential edition to this post-apocalyptic saga of life after death and even more death. This book is actually part 2 to the Blood of Before, but as mentioned before, co mingles and blends quite nicely into the universe Scott Hale has managed to conjure. There aren't many series out there t ...more

Hale, as always, does not disappoint. Here we find new stories that fill in some unknowns from the 'Bones of the Earth' series. We get a view into how some of the characters come to be and their back story.

Our fav mozzie make an appearance to boot and questions we have from the series are answered here.

As far as horror, gore, violence and shock factor go there is plenty here and as always, Hale is the top in his class. Hell, he has his own class of horror. A real head mess mash up.

Scott Hale has always been obsessed with all things horror. While it's not uncommon for his writings to blend multiple genres together, Horror is ever-present, be it in the scenarios themselves, or the uncomfortable truths he dares to explore.

Scott is the demented mastermind behind The Bones of the Earth series. Six books and four years later, the series has come to an end, but his addiction to wr
