    A pretty decent read.

    I thought the book was pretty good.The story was written well and had a fairly decent plot.There were some typos throughout the book,but that might not be the writer's fault.I do think the book got off to a slow start,but after the first chapter or two it picked up.Some might think it's gory or too graphic,but it didn't really bother me.So if you are up for a pretty good read to kill some time..I would definitely suggest this book.

    Just couldn't get into it. I have tried reading it 4 times now and it still hasn't grabbed me. Have made it halfway through the book and just can't get excited about it. Love a good horror book and this one just hasn't grabbed me. Guess you get what you pay for sometimes.

    Hard to follow.

    Was hard to follow at times but still was able to keep my interest. I like Stephen King and Dean Koontz and this was kind of on the same thought process but a little more bizarre.

    Wow...probably the worst book I have ever read. It doesn't even come
    close to making sense. This is not even counting the poor grammar and
    typos. Not even standard typos, which are typical of free books and
    can be overlooked. These are typos that make you stop & ask
    "really?". Horrible, even for a free book.

    Review

    Although the plot of this book was interesting, the poor editing was a major distraction. I would not recommend this book to anyone that gets annoyed by typos or run-on sentences.

    Disappointing

    The book sounded interesting, but unfortunately the writing is not very good. The sentences and descriptions are too long and rambling and the story feels disjointed. After struggling through the first 50 pages or so, I couldn't force myself to finish and deleted the book - the first book ever that I hadn't finished.

    Not good at all.

    Never really got going. Sex and violence just thrown in. Hard time following story line because thete was no meat to the story.

    Awful

    I tried and tried to finish this book but could not...and I always finish! It is awful. Rather like the author decided to just make it up as he went. No logic to any of it- why the charactors do what they do or the 'powers' of the evil things. Just a lot of gross killing, that gets grosser. Also several graphic sex scenes that have no place in the story. I am not sqeamish at all; nor a prude. This just crossed the lines so much. So bad. So very bad. And long. Waaaay too long...i forced myself through the last 200 pages over the course of two weeks and cannot make myself finish.

    Poorly written

    This book is poorly written with missing words and the plot seems to skip around i was determined to finish reading it but gave up halfway through, very disatisfied Wouldnot have given it even one star but i guess it deserves one since it was free

    Poor

    This book jumps around and is very hard to follow. I felt very lost and never really 'knew' the characters. Very little detail. I am sorely unimpressed with this book.

    So So

    The authur has potential but tried to include too much. There were a couple of explicit sex scenes that really had not place in the story. Just there for a little shock value.

    The ending got really boring -- way too much gore. The story kinda got lost in excuses just to add more gore details.
