Wonderfully atmospheric, with a leisurely pace that relishes in the reveal and the building of tension. This was the first adult work I'd read by Maberry, and in fact his first novel, so going into it I already knew that he was a fantastic writer; I had a few problems with the Rot & Ruin series, but...

I am going to be the party pooper again. Many of my friends enjoyed this story but as much as I tried (and, boy, did I ever try) I could not fall into this book.Part of the problem was the narrator. His voice was gravelly and deep and it suited some of the characters but it grated on me. Sorry but i...

Jonathan Maberry is real hit or miss for me. I like the Joe Ledger series even though I generally hate his writing style. But I still keep giving him a chance. This book won the Bram Stoker Award so I thought I was in for something good here. If this is what they honor, then I don't actually get wha...

I wasn't sure about the Maberry novel at first. It takes time for the plot to develop and there is not an overwhelming complicated hero figure like with the start of the Benny Imura or Joe Ledger series. However, the intricate plot developments, characters and sheer creepiness left me want to keep ...

Had I realized that this is the first in what will be a trilogy of books, I most likely would have put it down and made a note in my booklist to look for the whole trilogy in a few years. Alas, when the nice girls at Coles proffered this and a few other novels they thought were up my alley, I took ...

Sometimes a horror story is the thing to read. And a horror story that'd drawn out into three books can't be all that bad ! I am attached to the characters and want to see them kick some terrible creature butt!

This book was kind of like Diet Stephen King: no calories, half the flavor. Jonathan Maberry apparently scripts comic books too, and that was apparent in the melodramatic prose and the prolonged fight scenes in Ghost Road Blues.Thirty years ago, the small town of Pine Deep was victimized by a serial...

It is always a pleasant surprise to discover a horror story that really gives good meaning to what horror writing is all about. Ghost Road Blues at it's heart is the struggle of good and evil in the quaint little setting of Pine Deep, a quiet little Pennsylvania town now enjoying the good times but ...
