This zombie tale set in Florida takes no time in getting started. Within the first couple of pages, a noxious gas is released by construction workers digging and thus begins the action.

This is the third book in an impressive series. The first book, The Summer I Died, was one of the most shocking books I’d read in some time. The second, Born to Bleed, continued our hero Roger’s story and expanded the scope. I’d recommend reading the rest of the series, but if you haven’t, all …Read More

It’s no secret that I’m a huge Clive Barker and Hellraiser fan. Since I first read The Hellbound Heart and saw Hellraiser, they terrified me and captivated my imagination in equal measure. Ever since, I’ve been fascinated with the series and the mythos created around the Cenobites and this vision of sadist hell. Of all …Read More

What an eye catching cover and impactful title this book has. Include the tagline “Punks vs Nazi Monsters From the Depths of Hell,” and it sounds like the greatest B movie ever in book form. Considering my movie taste, that’s certainly not an insult. Mentioning Nazis and wolves immediately brings to mind the Grindhouse (2007) fake movie …Read More

I’d really enjoyed the previous book I’d read from Toby Tate, Lilith, so I was excited to pick up his latest offering, a novella entitled The Black Church.
