the author is good but sometimes he is just get over board with the sex, with the swearing, i mean torture...way over board on that...this had it all...the writing was ok not the greatest...boxes at each sentence when someone spoke...you could not tell when some talked...this is another reason i stopped reading it..
i do not mind sex in books or even torture but this one went too overboard...but if its ur cup of tea then enjoy

This is the first book I read by this Author, I wasn't sure if I was reading an 'adult' book if you get my drift or a horror. and once I finally got into some of the horror it was just poorly written, hard to follow and very hard to visualize what he was writing aboutWas this review helpful?

Later, the ones left alive would agree they never should have turned off that dark stretch of Tennessee interstate. They were tired and tense, two guys and three girls arguing over a vacation gone bad. But things were about to get worse for the five young friends. Much, much worse. In fact, most of them would never see the highway again. The woods were dark and forbidding, filled with unseen dangers and inhuman sounds. The light in the distance promised sanctuary from the grasping terrors. Instead, the light lured the travelers to the very heart of evil, a house at the endtrance of Hell, a house that held only torture, depravity and - for the lucky ones -death. When the front door closes, the screaming begins! This book was a lot different than I thought it would be. I thought it was creative. I liked some of the magic and supernatural stuff. If this were to happen in real life, I bet this authors description of Below would be true, every person for themselves, do what you have to do to survive.Was this review helpful?

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 StarsWas this review helpful?

It took me about a week to read this book, and it was pretty good. Full of suprises, horror, and violence, Bryan Smith keeps your attention all the way through. This book stays at a steady pace and doesn't bore you. A good horror book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
