The Dark Net by Benjamin Percy

The Dark Net by Benjamin Percy

The Dark Net is a standalone novel by Benjamin Percy, an author that until now was new to me; thus I didn’t know what to expect when I picked up the book. And nothing prepared me for what I was about to read. Even after reading the blurb and a few Goodreads reviews, I had an entirely different notion of what the book would be compared to what it ended up being. After the first few chapters, I thought the book would be a novel about … the Dark Net and the illegal tradings going on there (and yes, which […] Read more »

The Vines by Christopher Rice

The Vines by Christopher Rice

The Vines is a standalone gothic thriller-horror novel by Christopher Rice. The main reason I picked it up at Netgalley was because the author is the son of the famous vampire novels author Anne Rice, who literally made me love books about vampires (romance, horror and anything in between). I was curious about how the son of the famous author writes his books, and to be honest, the subject of the story intrigued me as well, having had a long lasting love for The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham (a book that I highly recommend). In addition I […] Read more »

Oasis Of The Damned By Greg F. Gifune

Oasis of the Damned

Oasis Of The Damned is a short standalone novel by the horror book author Greg F. Gifune. Horror is not a genre I read very often, but now and then, when I feel like sampling, I head over to Netgalley and browse through the selection listed by the publisher DarkFuse, which is chock full of great short horror novellas. The story is about Heather Richter, an ex-army captain whose helicopter crashed somewhere in the Sahara desert. Much to her surprise, she is not alone. She is soon found by Owens, a man who has been seemingly there for a while. While […] Read more »

Serial Killers Incorporated by Andy Remic

Serial Killers Incorporated by Andy Remic

Serial Killers Incorporated is the first book in a new series by the author Andy Remic. Currently it looks like a standalone, however it has big chances of being turned into a supernatural thriller series. To be honest, I find it quite difficult to review it, not even sure where to start. I liked it, could have loved it, but I found it way too strange and confusing for my taste. Even now that I finished the book, I’m not quite sure what exactly did I read and who were indeed the main characters. The story is about Callaghan, a […] Read more »

Ancient Enemy by Michael McBride

Ancient Enemy by Michael McBride

When I choose Ancient Enemy at NetGalley to read and review, I really picked it up due to its intriguing cover. It strongly reminded me of a computer RGP game called Diablo that I used to play many years ago, so I got curious of what the book was all about. I kind of figured it wouldn’t be a typical mystery, but more of a horror story. I haven’t read a good horror novel in ages, so I welcomed the change in genre. Ancient Enemy is about Sani Natonaba, an Ute/Navajo young guy who lives with his drunken mother and his stroke-paralyzed […] Read more »
