    Jason Grant is one of my favorite authors now. These three books

    Jason Grant is one of my favorite authors now. These three books are fantastic!! 
    Each book is packed with non stop action and adventure. I could not put these 
    books down, which says a lot since it takes a lot to get me interested in a book. 
    Once I finished one book, I had to start the next one in anticipation to see what 
    happens next. Jason does a great job of pulling you into his world he is trying to 
    desribe. I felt like I was there with Lance and Cass all through the series and 
    it is hard not to feel their emotions as you read. This series NEEDS to be made 
    into movies, period! 

    Jason has done a great job of bringing something original. His creatures are 
    nothing like I have ever heard of. He brings a realistic look at the human 
    condition and the drive to survive.

    Devoured by Jason Brant




    Lance, by his own admission, was a loser.  Stuck in a failed marriage and unable to keep a job, he had succumbed to depression and had pretty much given up.  While walking down the street talking to an old coworker that he hadn’t seen in years, he noticed an incoherent woman stumbling toward an intersection and certain death.  He was struck by a car when he pushed the woman to safety, but the insanity was just beginning.  While in the hospital, he learned that the woman was infected with a virus that had turned her into a cannibalistic monster.  She wasn’t the only infected;  it seemed the entire city of Pittsburgh was under attack, and the military closed in to quarantine the hospital.  With the help of a doctor and a staff sergeant with a conscious, Lance was able to get his soon-to-be ex wife and her boyfriend (his old coworker), to safety and to escape the hospital.  His journey to safety, however, was far from over!
     
    Jason Brant has made me afraid of the dark once again!  His rendering of these “Vladdies” was horrifying.  They’re a terrifying cross between demons, zombies and vampires, and the true stuff of nightmares!  Lance and his travelling companion Cass were quite a pair.  The banter made me smile even while my heart was pounding and I was struggling to remind myself that it was okay to exhale!  These two “failures” came into their own and proved their own opinions of themselves wrong.  They managed to be stronger than they thought, while still keeping their insecurities.  This made them completely believable characters that I rooted for with a vengeance!  I try to imagine myself stuck in a situation like this, and I hope to be 1/10th of the person that Cass was.
     
    This book was so fast paced that there was absolutely never a dull moment.  It held my attention from the first page to the last, and I darn-near threw my kindle when the battery died.  This is also a book that I thought about even when I wasn’t reading it… very few books affect me like that.  I am both nervous about and looking forward to the next book in the series.  Jason has a way of making even the bizarre terrifyingly real, and this book was no exception.  As a Pennsylvania girl, the location of the book hit me a little hard.  My home was being invaded!  Seriously, five stars doesn’t do this book justice.  Elevendy seven will have to do!








    Consumed (The Hunger #2) by Jason Brant




    Wow.  Where do I begin?  This book takes off exactly where Devoured (book 1) ends.  This is not really a stand alone, so I recommend that you read the first in the series before this one.  Actually, the awesomeness of this book doubles when you read Jason’s short story, Lotion, that was in Cynthia Shepp’s Apocalypse Anthology.  Lotion was the story that started this entire series, introduced us to this world, and to a couple of the characters.  This latest installment in this series does not disappoint!
    The action was intense and pretty much nonstop throughout the book.  That’s not the only great thing about this story.  This book is well-balanced.  What I mean by this is that the characters are written beautifully and grow through the story, the action is intense, the horror is vividly real, and there is just enough humor and even the occasional “Awww” moment to keep the scary stuff from overwhelming the reader.  This book has it all!




    When this book starts off, Lance and Cass, Eifort and Dr. Emmett Brown (haha), are living on the Duchess, a boat, in the middle of the Allegheny River to avoid the victims of the Xavier virus.  These vampire-like once humans have taken over the night and have infected or eaten the majority of the population.  When their boat is destroyed, they have to move on and find another safe place to hide out from the monsters.
    To make matters worse, a militia-like group of survivalists headed by a psychopath named Ralph are on a mission to wipe them out, too, thanks to Lance unwittingly angering Ralph in a restaurant in the previous book.  This just adds to the horror, as the group of four can’t seem to avoid one nightmare encounter after another.
    There are several moments of hilarity in this book.  The banter between Lance and Cass had me laughing even through the scary moments, the Doc Brown and Back To the Future references and jokes made this geek giggle, and the daily ham radio reports from the Wild Man of Monroeville.  The Wild Man seemed to know exactly what was going on in the Pittsburgh area from his seemingly impenetrable hidden location, and his descriptions of the people and events had me literally laughing out loud.
    There are some serious developments in this book that I didn’t see coming, and wow… that’s all I can say about that without giving away spoilers.  The end of the book had the stories coming full circle, with characters from the short story Lotion making their appearance, and the ending really threw me for a loop!  I didn’t want to put this book down, and re-read several sections after I finished because I simply was not ready to be done with these wonderful characters in this frightening but realistic world!




    Ravaged (The Hunger #3), by Jason Brant




    This is the third book in The Hunger series, and I didn’t think he could top book two.  Book two was a fast-paced Hell ride through an apocalyptic nightmare.  I was wrong.  Book three blew me away and had me thinking of the book when I had to put it down and walk away and deal with real life.  I desperately wanted to lock myself away from everyone and read this book in one sitting.




    The “Vladdies” as they’re referred to in the book are changing yet again.  They’re becoming more than just killing and eating machines, they’re thinking and communicating with each other.  Lance, Cass, Eifort, Doc Brown and the rest of the bunch found safety in the second book, but their safe haven became more of a trap once the Vladdies started planning ways to breach the security measures.  A rouge but small band of “military” also moves in to complicate things.  Making matters even worse, Cass is pregnant, making Lance’s need to protect her even stronger.
    This book had non stop action, from beginning to end.  I barely had time to catch my breath before being dragged into the next crisis.  This is definitely a book for those who hate filler fluff, as there is absolutely none in this entire series.  I held my breath one minute, and laughed the next.  I was terrified to read the next page, and even cried a little at the end.




    My fiance, who doesn’t read at all, paid rapt attention to my narration of this entire series as I’ve read it so far and insists that Jason needs to find a way to make these books into a movie.  I usually balk at those comments, but I tend to agree with him on this one.  I’d love to watch this and the last two books as movies… as long as:
    1. Jason writes, directs, produces and casts said movie
    2.  It’s a huge epic movie leaving absolutely NOTHING out.
