Slithering Our Way To LA – The Nightwalker by Mick Ridgewell @mickridgewell
The Nightcrawler - Mick Ridgewell

 

 

I would like to thank the publisher, Alien Agenda for the opportunity to read The Nightcrawler by Mick Ridgewell.  It is the perfect time of year for this creepy story and I enjoyed every minute of it.

MY REVIEW

 

I live in Florida but am originally from Michigan, so I feel right at home…in Detroit. At least, that is where Scott starts from. Familiar territory makes me settle right in.

 

Scott shows early on what an asshole he is. The more I read, the less I liked him. He’s rude, arrogant, and just plain mean. But, he’s driving a red hot Charger. Mick Ridgewell does a fabulous job of describing how it looks and sounds. I can hear it. I love the sound of the old sports cars, the deep growling rumble of the engine.

 

Roger was hitchhiking from Vermont to the Grand Canyon, enjoying stopping here and there along the way.

 

As I read of Roger’s nightmare, I can see him and Scott must be on a collision course and it won’t have a happy ending. I am worried about Roger. If his nightmare comes true…well, I don’t want that for him.

 

When Mick describes the nightcrawlers, their slimy trails on the blacktop like roads on a map, it brought back childhood memories of hunting for them at night as a kid. Then, we would take them to the bait shop up the street and sell them. I love when books have that something extra that I can relate to when reading.

 

The story is told from two points of view, Scott’s and Roger’s. As we travel to their ultimate destination…we have some fun, meet some people, cross some hurdles, but if you hear anyone say Okie Dokie…RUN!

 

The smell of the bum is everywhere, haunting Scott.

 

The red eyed dog lurks in the shadows.

 

Always the raven watches.

 

I now see the connection, why both men are being haunted by the past and why the raven is keeping tabs on everyone. There is an aura of menace that permeates the pages. I know something’s going to happen, I just don’t know what or when and I am a bit worried. You see, I have come to like Roger and Beth…a lot…and I would like them to have a future once the trip is over.

 

Fate, Karma, ghosts. You can run, but you can’t hide.

 

If you like a story with slow building suspense, where the supernatural steps in to haunt your every step and the past comes back to haunt you, where your karma catches up to you and the price you must pay for the wrongs you committed will not be denied,  then Nightcrawlers is for you.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Nightcrawlers by Mick Ridgewell.

Evil Unleashed
Evil Unleashed - Mick Ridgewell

Disclosure: I purchased the book "Evil Unleashed" from the author at the Book Expo in Windsor I do not know the author personally but we belong to the same writers group. The comments that follow are my own personal opinion. I received NO compensated of any kind, or from any one, to provide this review.

I bought this book in November and just finished reading it last month. I enjoyed the read, but it was much more gory and bloody than the author's previous books. This book centered on a truly evil vampire out for revenge with his minions to help. The gore is more than I usually like, but the story was well told and the book an easy read. The vampire was the main character and he personified the evil within perfectly. I enjoyed reading this book and give it 4.5 stars.

Evil Unleashed by Mick Ridgewell
Evil Unleashed - Mick Ridgewell

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Malachi Adams has lain at the bottom of a well for over a century, with the help of a virgin's blood he manages to escape and begins plotting his revenge on the town that stopped his rampage so long ago. He recruits Roland Millhouse, a man who wrote a book about the vampire and the history of Kings shore, to help him exact his revenge. Will Roland be strong enough to stop Malachi or will he let Malachi make him immortal?

I had no idea that this was a sequel to Evil Never Dies and whilst it is a bit annoying to know that there is way more backstory to this tale it reads incredibly well as a stand alone. The author doesn't cover any new ground with vampire mythology but what he does write is fast paced, fun and high on gore.

Whilst most of the characters were engaging, I found that Malachi really stole the show. One gripe character wise is that the story spends a lot of time fleshing out Susan and CJ, friend and brother of one of the first victims, but at the end they are largely forgotten about and only mentioned in passing. The read was too light to be heavily invested in any of the characters but it was frustrating not to have more closure on them. The author leaves the end open for more carnage so who knows, there may be more to their story.

A highly enjoyable read that has me looking to line up the first book.

I truly enjoyed this book and I'm not a vampire fan. The premise of an old lady and reporter discussing 100 year old vampires was unique and provided a new platform for an old tale. The vampires were true monsters and came to life for me. Mr Ridgewell's writing seems to have matured from his first book and I'm looking forward to reading "Evil Unleashed" - the sequel to "Evil Never Dies"
