**********
For eighteen-year-old Johnny Petrie, the dilapidated farmhouse in Maine meant a way out. When the letter arrived saying he had inherited an estate from a man he'd never heard of before, Johnny knew he could finally escape the hell of living with his religious zealot mother and drunken father. He didn't realize that the hell he was moving into would be far, far worse.

The previous owner of the estate was Benjamin Conroy, a man obsessed with securing eternal life for himself and his family--even if he had to kill them to do it. Conroy's ultimate ritual, a perverse ceremony of blood and butchery, went hideously wrong, denying him the immortality he sought, leaving him and his family dead. But now that Johnny has arrived at the house, Conroy's spirit will have a second chance....

    To #8 hannah abbotr

    Actualy i can see why you call them zombies, but its actualy the familys souls going to the bodies that died. I saw the movie DEAD SOULS on Chiller and i enjoyed evey second of it. Evey time it went to commercials? It kept me guess what was going tto happen next. I love the ending it was a great plot. I also loved the very vry ending(not wanting to give anything away) Tonight i figured to search my favorite movies and i just figured out DEAD SOULS is a book and now im going to read it. There not actual zombies. Just souls of the dead taking over their bodies. ;)

    Atmospheric, brooding, mysterious and violent. Dead Souls packs

    Atmospheric, brooding, mysterious and violent. Dead Souls packs a real punch of genuine Horror, wrapped in an Occult glove.

    Johnny Petrie, trapped in a restrictive upbringing, comes into an unexpected inheritance on his 18th birthday – and then all hell breaks loose. The discovery of who he really is, what happened when he was a baby, and how he got the scar on his chest sets off a chain of horrific events that mirror the occult ritual, started 17 years previously by his Father, that went horribly wrong and left a lasting curse on his forebears and those involved.

    Drawn inexorably to the town in rural Maine where the nightmare unfolded, Johnny and the other important parties find themselves in a fight for survival against evil, possessive violence that wants Johnny’s blood to seal the pact made long ago.

    Soon to be a TV Movie – Dead Souls is a real page turner – at times truly frightening, and always tense and thrilling.

    The BEST zombie novel ever?

    I didn't realize this was a zombie novel. After reading Brian Keene's The Rising, I thought zombies were going to be tough to beat. But Michael Laimo did it. If you thought Deep In The Darkness was good, you'll LOVE Dead Souls. It's a GREAT horror novel, has zombies, gang rape, mass murder, suicide, dead animals, and a VERY cool story of the occult. Highly recommended. Could easily be the best horror novel of the year.

    Great horror

    Johnny Petrie has had a very unhappy childhood living with his drunken father and a religious maniac of a mother who has controlled him all his life. Her mission in life is to make sure that evil doesn¿t find her son. Johnny comes home one day and sees a letter addressed to him and because his mother is not home he dares to open it. It contains a letter from a lawyer in Wellfield. Maine informing him that he has inherited the estate of Benjamin Conroy worth over two million dollars.------------------------ When Johnny¿s mother sees the letter, she goes into a convulsion and is rushed to the hospital where he learns her maiden name was Conroy. When he returns home, he finds his father dead of a suicide. Feeling there is nothing left for him in New York he travels to Wellfield to claim his inheritance. He doesn¿t realize that the evil malevolence that claimed all the members of his family is waiting for him to join the rest of his kin¿.in hell.------------------------- The ability to scare a reader into sleeping with the lights on is something only a master of the horror genre can do and Michael Laima will run up your electric bill. The horror slowly creeps up on the audience, catching them off guard when it turns into something from beyond. Like Stephen King, Mr. Laima develops his characters so they seem real and evoke emotions of sympathy and pity for the protagonist and revulsion for Johnny¿s biological father who formed his own form of religion which led to a family catastrophe.--------------- Harriet Klausner

    Entertaining Read!

    Great story for Halloween! I read this about 3 days, it was that good! Mr. Laimo has a very disturbing mind... Plot was good, not many twists but complete enough to keep you wanting to find out what happens next. Can't wait to see the Chiller movie! Hopefully it's as good as the book.

    Okay

    This book has several unusual touches and it's pretty interesting and it's fairly well written.

    Keep an eye on Laimo

    This nifty tale quickly festers and explodes into sprawling action sequences and great gobs of gory fun! But that's not all. The characters are well rounded, and the book is evenly paced. There's something for readers and writers here.
