On July 15, 1991, an isolated village in Northern Wisconsin is ground zero for an unprecedented, fiery tragedy. Of the community's 600 residents, there are only five survivors. Detailed accounts by the victims contradict each other; the only link is a man named Anthony Guntram, but because he is presumed to be dead, this claim can't be verified. Further investigations reve ...more

    It's not often that a new book ends you hurtling back forty years.... not a new horror novel, anyway. But if you spent the 1970s devouring cheapo horror paperbacks, the sub-Stephen King variety that were so implausibly, gratuitously nasty that - well, you know the expression "so bad, it's brilliant?" That sums those books up. And that is where "Amber Horror" is targeted.

    It's terrific No spoilers, no "you'll never believe the bit where." But there are a lot of parts that merit that warning, and

    Amber Hollow is a great combination of mystery, fantasy and a touch of horror. A fire destroys an isolated town, and that isolation is only one difficulty is solving what happened. As the police get deeper into the investigation, they only find more questions. And those questions finally come to circle the 11-year-old survivor.

    If you like a story with a mystery and some horror aspects, this is the book for you. An intriguing story about a fire ravishing a town leaves you wondering what the survivors are hiding, why they're all so strange, and who actually is involved. While I didn't care much about the survivors themselves, I did love the main characters, Jeremy and Sadie. Sadie is easily one of the better character's I've read recently, and what is not to like about a badass female cop who is sure of herself and her ...more

    This was a unique telling of a horror story, the characters were great and I was captured by the story itself. Mr. Swamp was able to create a good mystery in his horror novel and I like that when reading a horror book.

    AMBER HOLLOW is the product of a very creative mind, a novel whose mysteries twist and turn, echoing backnon themselves, constantly changing appearances, till one doesn't know in which direction to look or whether one is coming or gping--because everyone lies, many of them in what they consider the service of a Greater Good-which isn't. A riveting novel of paranormal, Supernatural, contemporary tied to historical--even, perhaps, Lovecraftian. An amazing novel.

    I love a good mystery, and this one kept my interest up until the very end -- with a twist that legitimately shocked me! Amber Hollow is a quick, easy read, perfect to get you in the Halloween spirit.

    Edgar's new novel turns the classic mystery on its head. After a fire destroys the isolated Amber Hollow, it's up to two detectives to figure out what's cursing this Wisconsin town. Mixing elements of thrillers and horror, you'll never see the ending coming!

    Edgar Swamp's newest book does a fabulous job of blending horror with mystery and fantasy, creating a novel like no other! Jeremy and Sadie make a great investigative duo, and the remote Wisconsin village where a disastrous fire is set in makes the story all the more creepier.

    A thoughtful horror sorry. It’s was a fast read and kept me guessing. It also made me do a little research on Wisconsin! The Who and why of Anthony Guntram drives the story but there is much much more. Highly recommend!

    Amber Hollow is a great combination of mystery and horror. True to his other novels, Swamp writes a story so captivating that you can’t put it down until you get to the end.
