No one gets out alive! When their car broke down in a dangerous inner-city neighborhood, Kerri and her friends thought they would find shelter inside an old, dark row home. They thought it was abandoned. They thought they would be safe there until help arrived. They were wrong. The residents who live down in the cellar and the tunnels beneath the city are far more dangerous than the streets outside, and they have a very special way of dealing with trespassers. Trapped in a world of darkness, populated by obscene abominations, they will have to fight back if they ever want to see the sun again. Every city has its secrets and urban legends. But nothing can prepare them for when they find out the truth about this horrible house. Urban Gothic is Brian Keene's blood and body fluid splattered tribute to horror icon Edward Lee. "Raw, gritty, and often brilliant . . . Urban Gothic is a tour de force in shock horror." - Dark Scribe Magazine

My IQ dropped nine points over the course of this novel.
Having read four books by Brian Keene he is probably one of my favourite authors within Horror Fiction. But this book... I don't know what to make of it. I start reading as soon I bought it but after reading 100 pages I was a little dissapointed and stopped altogether.In December I said to myself th...
This one is hard for me to rate. I enjoy violence and gore but I enjoy original violence and gore. I felt this too closely mirrored the overall plot of Off Season by Ketchum or The Cellar by Laymon. I like Keene's writing and style and am disappointed that this is somewhat of a copycat plot. Tha...
