Brilliant. I loved this book so much. A great follow on from The Mother of all Things but you could definitely read Godless Creatures without reading the first. Although, once you've read this book, you probably want to.
The writing and layout are perfect with each chapter being one of the four main characters in sequence making it easy to follow. The story flows really well.
It's very dark and chilling at times. If it was a movie I'd tell a squeamish person not to watch it alone.

Expect the unexpected...such clever writing!

Superb sequel to The Mother of All Things. The author cleverly takes the characters to another level as they adjust to life after the massacre at Sablefall Farm. Lenny, my favourite character, embarks on a mission to find Elaine’s sons’ killer and soon becomes embroiled in the hunt for the evil serial killer responsible. There are so many unexpected turn of events that you just don’t see coming, which makes such a refreshing change as I can usually pr

The potential for evil is buried in all of us – but is it down to nature or nurture? This gripping psychological thriller is a tense page turner packed with twists and turns. Author Blake's writing flows easily and is a pleasure to read, despite the dark and chilling plot. Continuing the story begun in 'The Mother Of All Things', Elaine and her brother Liam are adults with a shocking past and horrific shared secrets. The pair have adapted to live 'normal' lives and form relationships, whilst qui ...more

This was an excellent sequel to The Mother Of All Things, which elaborates on the horrific events of the past. It was filled with the evil that humans commit, but the question of whether those decisions are inherent or created by experience is explored. I think it can be both. Though does it depend on strength of character? Can the brain be retrained?

With power comes corruption, but does that corruption cause evil? Is it the 'entitled' whose arrogance allows evil choices? Or does it begin from c

Is a killer born or made???

Jesus! What a crazy, rollercoaster ride of emotions!
You'll find this sequel book to be as disturbing, vile, evil and totally unpredictable as the first...and just as un-put-a-down-able!
Actually, it does make me wonder how sick my own mind is having enjoyed ( I don't know if that's the right word!), such a horrific depraved piece of literature.
Great writing,brilliant storyline, and fantastic characters.
A conclusion of the first book, and possibly an ending for a next bo

1. Don’t Talk
2. Don’t Scream
3. Don’t Try To Escape
The three rules that need to be followed to stay alive.

This book shows you how humans become godless creatures and how guilt can eat you alive.

We see this creation through the eyes of The Boy and the created through the eyes of a man drowning in guilt. Through those same eyes we can see how redemption is found and evil is born.

You can see how actions have consequences and how the present shapes the future.

Having read the first one and had thoughts around how this one would go, I was surprised at the twists and turns! Great end to the story, although it would have been nice to not have a ‘hero from the monster’ for a change!
Would still recommend though, great storyline!

My preferred genre is psychological thrillers. I love all the plotting involved in creating a story with twists, turns, and jaw-dropping moments. Some would say my writing is aimed more toward horror-thriller.
I love to read books by Stephen King, Mark Billingham, James Patterson, Dean Koontz, Jeffery Deaver, Val McDermid, Peter James, and Teresa Driscoll to mention a few.
