More About This Book

Overview

It was a legend in Fear County... a hideous, flesh-eating creature - part snake, part earthbound demon - that feasted on the blood of innocent children in the cold black heart of the Tennessee backwoods.

But ten-year-old Jeb Sweeny knows the horrible stories are true. His best friend Mandy just up and disappeared. He also knows that no one has ever had the courage to go after the monster and put an end to its raging, bestial hunger. Until now.

But Evil is well guarded. And for young Jeb Sweeny, who is about to cross over into the forbidden land of Fear County and the lair of the unknown, passage through the gates of Hell comes with a terrible price. Everlasting...FEAR!

INCLUDES SPECIAL BONUS STORY - THE SEEDLING

Evil lives in Beelzebub County and no one is brave enough to try and stop it from ravaging innocent children. But when ten-year-old Jeb's best friend disappears, he summons the courage to find and destroy the hideous, flesh-eating creature from the Tennessee backwoods.

    Horror With Heart

    I just read FEAR by Ronald Kelly. I read this book in 3 days! It was like reading Huck Finn meets the Creature From the BlackLagoon. I enjoyed the horror but was also entertained by the humor and reality of the cast of characters. This is my first book by Mr. Kelly, but I will now put him at the top of my must read list. Thanks Ronald!

    FEAR was fearfully good!

    What a pleasant surprise this dark little novel turned out to be. I had never heard of Ronald Kelly before and saw FEAR sitting on the shelf at Barnes & Noble one day while searching for new books to read. Jeb Sweeny is the main character, a ten year old boy who is confronted with many problems as this horror novel unfolds. Kelly makes the reader care about Jeb and his troubles. Set during the end of World War Two, Jeb's father, Sam, a shellshocked father who was wounded in the European Theater, accompany's his son, along with a blues guitarist named Roscoe in order to seek out the Granny Woman for help. You see, a vile creature has been snatching the children of Mangrum county and has been feasting on their blood inside a deep, dark cave. One of these children is Jeb's new girlfried, Mandy. I really had a good time reading this creepy novel. Jeb reminded me a lot of Huck from the Twain novel who confronts the creature in an attempt to destroy it all the while his grandmother his dying from cancer. Kelly really came through with this book and offered many interesting twists and turns. I will definitely read Kelly's new novel, Blood Kin, a vampire novel. Congratulations to Kelly for writing such a great horror novel. You'll fall in love with Jeb's dog, Buckshot.
