Was just as scary the second time as the first, however many years have passed between readings.

This book was a disappointment to me. I was hoping that the idea of a no of SS troops billeted in the aptly named "Keep" would be the recipe for a great story. However this never developed and the usual battle of good v evil occurred mixed in with a rather odd love story, resulting in a somewhat bo...

This is a good, solid horror thriller. Interesting riff on the vampire legend. (In Transylvania! With Nazis!). It features good pacing, sympathetic characters you worry over and evil ones you can hiss at, a nice element of romance. (I have to agree with one reviewer though, who observed that Woerman...

I think this book might have been a much more entertaining read if read when it was first released. Today, F. Paul Wilson's The Keep feels like a hundred different books I've read. Which isn't to say that this is a bad book. I gave it two stars in accordance to what Goodreads define each star to mea...

First F. Paul Wilson for me. I really like the style and pace of this writing. The story was unique too, some predictable elements had unexpected twists that made the story work just a little better. Very enjoyable. Up next: The Tomb.
