    Got a lot more than I expected

    I really enjoyed House of Blood. I got a whole lot more than I expected from it. It was truly a pleasure to read. The story starts off fast and never lets up. I loved the pace of this book. I found myself flying through it, and I was sad to see it end. I was really wrapped in the story. I thought that the characters were very well developed, and I didn't find any of them wooden or stale. I found myself falling in love with some, and loathing others. I think the character development was one of the strongest aspects of this story. The part I think I loved most though was the story itself. It is a whole lot deeper than I expected to be. I realized about a hundred pages in that I was going to be getting a whole lot more than I bargained for. It is very original. I think the cover was very deceiving on this one. I highly recommend House of Blood to anyone who loves a good Horror Novel with a twist. I think if you give it a try you will like it as much as me. Five Stars

    Best horror debut of 2004

    You won't read a better horror novel this year! After reading House of Blood I was blown away that this was a first novel--it sure didn't read like a debut, but it IS a debut by horror author Bryan Smith. If Stephen King fans are a little dissapointed with his writing lately--then look no further: House of Blood maybe the book that you need to read then. Bryan Smith reminds me of an younger King in his prime. I think Smith will bring back an edge that the horror genre has been missing as of late. Read House of Blood for yourself and feel the magic of a new novelist in the horror genre.
