Overview

Book 1 of the Diary of the Displaced series

There is a place where nightmares are real. It is a dark and terrifying place, hidden from the world we know by borders that only the most unfortunate of souls will ever cross.

James Halldon woke up in the dark, alone, without any food or water, without a clue where he was, and with no memory of where he came from.

It only got stranger.

James has somehow found his way to The Corridor, a midnight place that no human should ever see and the prison of a creature that has destroyed entire worlds. Somehow James has to learn to survive.

But he is not alone. The lost souls of others who have drifted into The Corridor, and died, also haunt this world, and they have been waiting a long time for someone to come along.

The Journal of James Halldon is a dark sci-fi novel that follows Halldon's struggle to survive whilst trying to understand the strange, dark, and terrifying world in which he is trapped.

If it's dark when you wake up, and you can hear growling, then close your eyes and maybe it will go away.

But maybe it won't...

I loved it! The ending is so shocking and it ends with some ?s so that it sets up for another book (idk if there is another) but it doesnt leave you with stupid ?s, so its great even if it doesnt have another. Again, i love it. Perfect read for fiction lovers. The author is very talented! ~Katie :p

I was a recipient of this book from the LibraryThing member giveaway in exchange for a review. I do not seek out dark fantasy, zombie, or ghost stories. Sometimes a person benefits by stepping outside their comfort zone. Such was the case with this book. I found this book to be engrossing and kept my interest. I read it in three sittings simply because it was a bit addicting. I actually rate the storyline, the ending, the characters at a 4.5 star level. I lowered my overall rating to 4.0 stars because of the obvious lack of editing. Sometimes I had to go back and re-read a passage to see what the author was trying to actually say. It is a good book and I highly recommend it to everyone. This is a good "outside of the box" read. I am looking forward to the sequel.

This was a unique and original thrill ride. Sort of reminded me of Stephen King's Gunslinger series, and just as well written. Totally has me wanting more. Found myself wondering what was going on back in " The Corridor" when I wasn't reading. Strange lands, (if not alien alltogether), fierce otherworldly beings and fauna, and a quest. Gunslinger meets Neverending Story. 372 knuckle gripping, late night turning pages. Thanks to this author for letting me (for free even!) peer through the looking glass. MB

This was a very interesting book. NO predictability here. The images that are conjured as you read this are original, horrific, and compelling. This was a great adventure to go on and I loved the structure the author used to tell the story.

I will read all in this series. The short stories are free. This one was over 300 pages. I will buy the novels and read the shorts that are free. I enjoy paralell & apocolypse type books so I really enjoyed this. Sorry about my spelling errors, we need spell check on our nooks. ;) Sanna7125

Very descriptive and wonderfully told first person story. Though it is written in diary form ( which i dont usually like) this book was just great. I dont know how else to put it. It was amazing and held my attention from the beginning which is difficult for areader like me who reads a completely different genre of books. I am definately reading more of his books. Andi will reccomend this to many of my friends and family, because i think you deserve the recogniton
