Horror at its best! I ran through this, it was so good.

Bill, Brian and his daughter Cathie are lost. The depth of the wilderness leaving them disoriented. They come across an old cabin with a lone old woman. She warns them of what is out there in the dark. What she saw take her father as a young girl. What shes been able to ward off for many years. As they set off to find civilization, they stumble across an abandoned town where the clock tower hands spin uncontrollably. Where are they and can

Excellent simply excellent

First off that cover. One of the best ever and there is so much storytelling in those pictures alone. The world building will blow your mind, the mystery will haunt your dreams, the plot is so realistic you believe you will wake up tomorrow in Dante's Town of Terror. Awesome sauce!

It was a very good read, but what about that ending? It just leaves you no place to go! Is there another sequel coming out?

Dante's Town of Terror by Patrick R. Delaney is a horrifying tale of a camping trip from hell. Brian took his friend, Bill, and daughter, Cathy, on a camping trip. However, somewhere along the road, they took a wrong turn and got lost in a deep, dark forest. This forest was not just filled with vicious animals, but monsters that were flesh and blood hungry. By a stroke of luck, they managed to get out of this forest and into a town. Nevertheless, as

Dante's Town of Terror by Patrick R. Delaney is the first part of the Infinity Killer trilogy. A camping trip. It should have been the perfect weekend for Brian, Bill, and Cathy but it turned into the weekend from hell. Taking a wrong turn on the journey, the trio finds themselves lost in a deep forest. This is no ordinary forest though; it isnt just full of wild animals but monsters too. Monsters that are hungry for blood. On the run, they

I would like to thank the author for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Dante's Town of Terror started off a bit slow for me, but after about 200 pages in, I felt that the suspense and pace of the story really picked up. From that point on, I was very curious to see what was going to happen next. There are several aspects of this novel that I enjoyed. One of these was the setting, which the author did a great job of describing. I could easily visualize the town and ...more

Different kind of book for sure. Packed with action and full of imagination. I really enjoyed this book. It is not a stand alone story but does not leave you hanging at the end. Only thing is it had lots of errors in the writing. Could use a good proof reader. Otherwise great. I'm not going to tell any parts of the story they would decrease the mystery. Read it you won't be disappointed.

With an interesting premise and a well-crafted storyline, this novel was a fun little read. The pacing of the action seemed to drag at times, but overall it was a good start to the upcoming series.
My Rating: 3.5/5 starts

Great read

The book started out a little slow but really took off. I did enjoy the book and it was really detailed.

I was given a PDF of the book for free by the author after volunteering to read it in exchange for an honest review. (I will say I did end up buying my own Kindle copy because the PDF was driving me crazy. Yes, I now know that you can upload PDFs into Kindle to read them.)

I will say, I liked the beginning of this book. Stories with people in the forest (especially lost) are some of my favorites. However, it quickly became apparent that there were going to be many plot holes. We kind of get told

I was sent this book from the author to review. I was very happy to read it since I like thrillers and independent authors.
First off, independent authors dont always get the best editing that they deserve. This book had a couple of plot holes that I kept wondering about, like where did that lock come from, or where did they find hammers, boards, and nails to board up the windows. Or there once was a time when a character said they would tell another character what they saw once they got back and

I enjoyed the book because you knew something was up but it wasn't until the end that the story all came together leaving the reader open-mouthed! I never saw the ending coming. There's rarely anything more terrifying than finding oneself or group lost in the woods, another terrifying thing is to come face to face with your deepest fear. Lost in the woods and then later in a town that holds the most vicious terrifying creatures, Brian, Bill & Cathy must find their way back to the woods and ...more

Good Little Read

Bill, Brian and Cathy, Brian's daughter were trying to go camping when they crashed their vehicle.
They tried to cut through the forest to find a phone but instead found an entire city that should not exist. It's always raining and the creatures that are only found in Lovecraft horror come out to hunt. They need to find a way to escape but how? The town was not on a map and they maybe stuck for a long time, that is if they dont become creature food.

I liked the story and it did

No one was more surprised than me how much I enjoyed this book. I do not like Sci-Fi and only read it at a friend's recommendation. I think the reason I bought into it is that there was enough "this really could exist" to quiet my normal overthinking and checking out at the first sign of impossibility. The author did such a good job of detailing each character and the city that I could almost smell it. It took longer to read because of that, but it was worth it. I was left with many unanswered ...more

A solid debut novel!

I liked the setup to this story a lot. Fans of Silent Hill would especially enjoy it. The characters were well rounded, and the descriptions were clear. There were plenty of scary moments too!

Almost 5 stars for me, but I felt some of the passages could have been shortened.

Looking forward to the next book!

I was finding the pace a bit difficult at first, but once I got used to it - things finally got going. I won't spoil, I will just say that it's a good thing that Book 2 was available to me right when I finished - else this would have been a much different review.

Very Strange Story Indeed

You won't believe how this horror story ends, and do believe me it is a horror story. It took me several hours to read, stopping periodically, and it was hard for me to stop reading it. You'll love it.

Interesting. Slightly terrifying and completely open ended. Not sure what could happen in the next book, if there is one. Not much explanation of what happened in this one.

Original storyline

Great story but needs a lot of editing - perhaps my own reasons for a smoother read? Still a worthy read
