Overview

Rebecca Rule is the sheriff of Refuge, New Hampshire. Her biggest concern is the rowdy summertime revelers making their way up from Massachusetts and New York. With most of the town’s residents in neighboring Ashland, for the 4th of July fireworks show, Refuge is quiet. That is, until the Baptist Church’s bell starts ringing—on its own.

The bell chimes faster and faster, reaching a frenetic pace, as though rung by the Devil himself. But the bell is just the beginning. The air shimmers. The night-time sky fills with a burning red aurora. The moon, previously a crescent, is now full. And just hours after dusk, the sun returns to the sky, revealing an endless desert where there was once a mountainous pine forest.

Rule must guide the confused and frightened residents of Refuge through the first terrifying hours of acclimating to this horrifying new environment, while protecting them from inhuman dangers both inside and outside of the town’s newly clean-cut borders.

In a world gone haywire, only one thing is certain, no one in Refuge will ever forget the night of the blood sky.

REFUGE is a serialized novel, co-authored by #1 Amazon.com horror author, Jeremy Bishop, and five other authors, including Amazon.com bestsellers Kane Gilmour and David McAfee, USA Today bestseller, Robert Swartwood, and newcomer Daniel Boucher. The novel will be released in five parts, every two weeks starting November 12, 2013, but it will also be available as one complete novel as soon as the fifth episode is released. So read along as they appear or hold out for the completed novel. Either way, you're in for a creepy ride.

Editorial Reviews

thenovelblog.com - Daniel Boucher
"With originality not seen since Fleischer's Zombieland, Bishop [drags] you kicking and screaming to the very bloody end. Look out Maberry ... there's a new sheriff in town."
author of HATER, DOG BLOOD & the AUTUMN series - David Moody
"TORMENT is a nightmarish descent through Armageddon. With barely a pause for breath, Bishop drags you out of normality, straight into the depths of a devastated post-apocalyptic landscape. Surreal and extraordinary locations, grotesque characters and outlandish events rise up from the devastated ashes of the familiar in this startlingly original horror novel. Dreamlike, disturbing and never predictable, once you start reading, you won't want to put it down."
NY Times bestselling author of THE SECRET CROWN - Chris Kuzneski
"Jeremy Robinson is the next James Rollins"
NY Times bestselling author of THE DESCENT - Jeff Long
"There's nothing timid about Robinson as he drops his readers off the cliff without a parachute and somehow manages to catch us an inch or two from doom."

    I could not put this book down or read the series fast enough. I read all the books at once; I don't know if I could have waited for each book to come out (even though it was only a couple weeks between each release). If you want a fun, fast paced, insane nightmare filled book, this is the one for you. Robinson and crew did an amazing job on this series and you will not be disappointed. This would make an awesome movie or mini-series, as long as Robinson was involved.




    What is the church bell ringing, where are they, what's gonna happen next? Hold on for a great ride!

    The following review is for all five books in the Refuge series.

    The following review is for all five books in the Refuge series. They are all separate episodes, but one season/story to me.
    The town of Refuge is a relatively nice little small town, until the church bell rings and suddenly everyone in town wishes they had left the day before. Never in the same place twice, this book takes you to some strange places and you meet some frightening monstrosities along the way, with sci-fi twists and action turns right up to the end of this powerhouse.
    The mix of sci-fi/action/horror is something rarely done good, let alone right and Jeremy Bishop and Company all did a very good job. They and other authors like them are the ones who should be in charge of what's on our idiot boxes and movie screens. Instead of the special effects laden, story deficient drivel and "Reality" TV that has replaced most of our serial TV shows, except for Lawyer/Crime dramas- because there aren't enough of those, right?

    This story starts in a nice sleepy New Hampshire town. Most of the residents have left to town, going to a bigger city to watch fireworks for the 4th of July. The sheriff is walking strolling around checking parking meters. Talking with citizens. The church bell starts ringing and then the town is surrounded by sand and the sky is red. 
    Jeremy comes up with some great creatures. The characters are very believable. It was easy to identify with the primary ones. The adventure is fantastic. However, one member of the community doesn’t make it. 
    I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes monsters, alien worlds, and a good read.

    Book 1 does more than build the world, it sets the hook and launches this five book series by setting an aggressive storytelling pace.  For a book to be good, in my opinion, it has to be based on characters than you love and/or love to hate.  Night of the Blood Sky makes good on the strong characters from chapter one.  Plus, what impresses me about the overall tale is that each book is a self contained story of its own.  While each contributes to the greater overall Refuge serial, each episode is a separate, digestible tale with its own beginning, middle, and end.

    Just finished this one and all I can say is day-am! Jeremy Bishop brings you into a small town where everyone knows each other and life is simple...until one day it's not. Watch as life in this small town gets turned upside down, and be prepared to hold your breath and shed a few tears in the process! If you have not read this one yet, I highly suggest you get to it!

    Great first installment in what promises to be a very fun serial novel. Spooky, atmospheric and eventually full of action. Just what fans of Jeremy Bishop have come to expect!
