Okay, to start with Hannibal Hills gives us his usual impeccable performance that is a joy to listen to. His voices are excellently crafted, and while his female voices do leave the tiniest bit to be desired, I have no complaints. As always, his vocal inflections and tempo changes were spot on.
My one narrator issue with this book is that it's a little off-putting to listen to a male voice narrating a ...more
The Mark is a fast-paced, suspenseful horror story. L. Mountford has written The Mark in such a way that it gets you thinking as you read, it makes you pause and reflect from time to time, or at least pause and look over your shoulder. I did this more than once!!
The Mark is a creepy and unsettling read, one of the best I’ve encounter ...more
Like The Demonic, The Mark is one of those rare horror novels that actually manages to be both well written and actually a bit creepy. It’s not schlocky or cheap and it’s story, while not wholly 100% original, is good enough to be entertaining and hard to put down. Mountford’s ability to keep the reader enthralled till the ver ...more

About the Book: One night a stranger breaks into Kirsty’s home, drugs her, and brands her back with strange occult symbols. Ever since she had no peace. At first she thought of the visions of nightmarish creatures as delusions or PTSD symptoms. But when her friend is attacked by the same demons, she knows she only has one option now: find the man who did this, and make him take it away.
My Opinion: This is some poor w ...more
Lee Mountford seems to love creating these creeptastic storylines that make you wonder about so many things. I love when an author stretches the realms of possibilities and really makes it work! I mean, The Mark, seems like a totally outlandish storyline but really had me questioning what if... I love stories that make you think... that make you wonder. I feel like this is somewhat an addition to Tormented. However, it isn’t necessary to read o ...more
The Book (Audible audio book option not available on goodreads at time of writing)
The concept of the story is good and suitably creepy, you'll find yourself turning pages quite quickly to get to the next part of the story. The swearing is a bit overused at times but otherwise it manages to set a very eerie atmosphere, the initial attack feels quite fraught and subsequent chara ...more
This was a completely awesome horror book! Right from the first page it grabbed my attention and never let it go. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I couldn't put it down so I read it all in one night. I'm a bit of a sissy so I will admit I was kinda scared when I was the only one up at 3am and I'm reading the parts about paranormal and occult. Was totally worth it though, a few nights with the lights on should fix my sissiness 😉. I would definitely recommend this book to ...more
Kirsty has had her share of pain and disappointment in her life but all of that pales in comparison to what Simon does to her. Simon seems to have his own demons...and he's compelled to share them. Since the insane symbol has been carved in Kirsty's back, her reality has just taken a plunge to a depth that seems to go beyond Hell. Will she figure out a way to be un-marked and thus get back to a normal life or will she end up like all the other victims that Simon has inflicted?
I have no particular type of fiction that I prefer. With the exception of romance novels (yuck), I like all genres. Mr. Mountford's brand of supernatural horror seems to be very much like Stephen King, only four steps darker. Not bloodier, just darker. The evil in these books is more tangible, more hell-based. I should mention that this is my second book by the author and I am referring to both.
I need to say that I like these books. They are well written, well plotted, with ...more
It wasn’t a bad book, if you’re into that kind of thing. I just didn’t like it. There was not enough mystery....the answers came too easy and it was too predictable. I also didn’t like the gore.
Otherwise, well written with no punctuation, spelling, or grammar errors that I could discern.
Unfortunately, this book was not to my taste. I enjoy the supernatural, haunted houses and things that go bump in the night but this gore soaked tale left me cold. It reminded me of some late night B movie from the "Horror Channel". I can't fault the author's imagination and the book will, no doubt, be praised by hard core horror fans. But, it wasn't for me.
Lee Mountford is a Sick Maniac. His Imagination in Occult Horror is incredible. I really love how everything I’ve read is all connected in the same Universe. If you like True Gory Horror, You will enjoy The Mark. My only disappointment is knowing that I only have

Of course, other genres float my boat as well; Sci-Fi, Thrillers, pretty much any Dark Fiction, but Horror is what I call home.
My first novel, Horror in the Woods, was released on 5th May, and the second, The Demonic, on the 18th July.
