In my review of Sean O'Connor's debut book, THE MONGREL, I had this to say,
"Something about O'Connor's natural storytelling ability is extremely compelling...the words on the page almost completely melt away and my reading experience feels like watching the events unfold--super addictive and engaging."

That statement applies to WEEPING SEASON in the best possible way. WEEPING SEASON drops the reader off in the middle of an intense scene right on page one. We find two people, an

My review of WEEPING SEASON can be found at High Fever Books.

A man and a woman wake up in the woods, chained to trees. They don’t know where they are, how they got there, or even who they are. Strangers, they are only identifiable to each other by the fresh tattoo inked into their recently shaved scalps. He is Seven, she is Eight. There are others like them in the woods, and they must band together in order to survive against the deadly challenges they are forced to endure by the mysterious entity

Brilliant Thriller

A fast-paced read you'll devour in one or two sittings. The action and horrors are relentless, and you'll never see the ending coming. Bleak, terrifying, and thoroughly entertaining.

The synopsis was enough to make this book a must-read for me. As a fan of Black Mirror, I knew this could go one of two ways. A completely engaging and unique read, or a massive dumpster fire that left me wanting. Even after devouring this book in a single day, I still waffled between rating this a 4 or a 5. I even talked it out with a friend (who didn’t mind the spoilers) and eventually made up my mind.

The first three quarters of the book is like some wild mash-up of Saw and Hunger

** Edited as review is now live on Kendall Reviews! **

“A man awoke to hysterical screams.”

Last year I had the pleasure of reading ‘The Mongrel’ by O’Connor, which at that time I raved about. It still is one of the best survival tales I’ve read, but one such issue I had was I felt that the werewolf aspect was tossed in, simply to make it a werewolf story. The book would have stood on its own merits even if it had just been a battle against the elements to survive.

WEEPING SEASON by Seán O'Connor is like the first season of LOST meets SAW. Honestly, that should be all I need to say to convince you to read this one.
.
The book opens with two people waking up in a forest. Chained to trees, they have no memories, they're naked, and have numbers tattooed on the back of the heads. In order to survive, they have to complete a series of torturous challenges given by an unseen "host".

The chapters are short and written from varying perspectiv

Shutter Island meets The Belko Experiment in Weeping Season, the latest from Seán O’Connor.

Immediately immersive Weeping Season opens with a twisted and perplexing situation that immediately brings to mind the question, what the hell was going on? Details slowly come to light, along with a cast of characters, not many of which are likable, but all of which must work together to survive some sick, weird experiment. Facing their fears, each person is selected at (supposed) random to complete a ta

I was fortunate enough to get an ARC of Weeping Season by Séan O’Connor and was immensely impressed. The story, which drops the reader right into the fray along with the main character, moves at a blistering pace, making it very hard to put down. It’s a vivid, wicked and wholly engaging read, filled with distinct characters and cringe-worthy scenes worthy of any horror fans’ shelves. I can’t recommend more highly.
