More About This Book

Overview

Lyn works at an isolated roadside diner. When a retired combat veteran stages an assault there her world is turned upside down. Surviving the sniper’s bullets is only the beginning of Lyn's nightmare. Navigating hostilities, she establishes herself as the disputed leader of a diverse group of people that are at odds with the situation and each other. Will she - or anyone else - survive the attack?

Bracken MacLeod's MOUNTAIN HOME hits like a Claymore mine and cuts with the emotional precision of a scalpel. Ferocious and tender, painful and real, it shows that the worst horrors are those we create ourselves, and that this world offers no shelter from evil, not even for the innocent. A powerful and thoughtful first novel."
~ Chet Williamson, International Horror Guild Award winning author of Soulstorm

"Bracken MacLeod's MOUNTAIN HOME is a superb page-turner that deserves such merit. What makes the story so compelling is MacLeod's willingness to cast aside cliches and stereotypes, his meticulous attention to facts and details, and his unflinchingly honest characters. His writing is layered with moments of elegant, heart-wrenching prose and pure diesel-fueled suspense, creating a novel that, quite simply, I couldn't put down until I finished the last page. It's THAT good."
~ Peter N. Dudar, author of A Requiem for Dead Flies

"In MOUNTAIN HOME, Bracken MacLeod finds the horrors and fears that are in the human heart and rips them out for all to see. When you start this book make no plans for the rest of the night - and don't expect to get any sleep. Hardboiled terror with an wonderfully eerie touch."
~ John French, author of Paradise Denied

"Bracken MacLeod brings heart and muscle to this taut siege thriller."
~ Nicholas Kaufmann, Shirley Jackson Award-nominated author of Chasing the Dragon

"Bracken MacLeod's debut novel MOUNTAIN HOME opens with a shot and never looks back. It's a great character study of people locked in a small space facing death. MacLeod is able to keep the tension taut throughout, and the story barrels towards a bloody ending. I'm interested to see what MacLeod has up his sleeve next."
~ John F.D Taff, Author of Little Deaths

"MacLeod’s gripping and heartbreaking story proves that evil isn’t always born, sometimes it’s crafted, insult by insult, injustice by injustice, and trauma by trauma. A kick-ass debut of page-clicking suspense!"
~ Jan Kozlowski, author of Die, You Bastard! Die!

"Confident and perfectly paced, MacLeod's novel is at turns heart-pounding and heart-rending, tender and vicious. A grade-A thriller."
~ Adam Cesare, author of Tribesmen

"Bracken MacLeod’s Mountain Home is a thrilling tale that took me places I never expected. With an explosive storyline that keeps you on your toes, the real surprise turned out to be his characters; real, growing, and full of vitality that you both love and love to hate. Joanie and Lyn’s intertwined stories are inspiring and horrifying, and after reading Mountain Home, it is astounding to consider the impact just one person can have. Please read this novel, but be prepared. This is a tale of personal passage—of gateways to change, for better or worse."
~ Weston Kincade, author of A Life of Death

    Kick It into High Gear!

    I loved this book the first time I read it, the second time I read it, and third time I read it. This is a Kick Butt, Take no names, leave no Prisoners book that will hold on to your eyeballs. Don't pick it up thinking you'll read a few pages before you start dinner. Dinner's going to be late, if you make it at all. I'm not sure I'll ever get the smoke smell out of my hair or the blood off my jeans. Way to go, Mr. MacLeod, I look forward to your next novel!

    If you like violence, racism and hatred all rolled into one book

    If you like violence, racism and hatred all rolled into one book, you should read this one. I read most of the book and finally put it down in disgust. The only positive thing I can say is that it only cost me 99 cents.

    I picked up this book as a needed change of pace; and am glad I did. The story takes off and never stops, enjoyed the character build-ups and riding along with the non-stop action. Very good book, hope to see more from this author.
