Snowblind (2014)
language
English
3.36 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I think it made me feel more sad than frightened, especially in the second part of the book when the ghosts of the departed meet their beloved again. On the whole the idea of the ice-men was good and the attempt to create a choral novel set in a small town with several characters...
The New Dead: A Zombie Anthology (2010)

review 1: I went into this anthology knowing very little about it except that 4 of my favorite authors were listed as contributors on the cover (Max Brooks, Joe Hill, Kelley Armstrong, and John Connolly). I've read very few anthologies with multiple authors that I thought were very good. I...

review 1: Good characters, interesting premise, and horrifying creatures - but, sloppily paced, particularly in the "present day" part of the story. Worst of all, towards the end, a character arrives with a massive infodump to explain the monsters. This would be bad enough, but the additio...

review 1: Short story collections are like sample platters. Great way to try several authors without commiting to a full length book. After an amazingly epic read, it can be hard to get into a novel that is good but not great. Or conversely after a really fluffy book, I'm not always ready ...
Zombie: An Anthology Of The Undead (2010)

English

review 1: Zombies seem to be all the rage these days. Before they become a meta joke you might want to read The New Dead. Some interesting twists on zombies, but I found myself missing the zombie apocalypse/survival horror/zombie world sprawling narratives. Sure, zombie humour is funny at ...

review 1: If you are into Zombies and short stories then 21st Century Dead is a great book for you. Short stories are not what I normally read so I was pleasantly suprised that I did enjoy certain parts of this anthology. My 2 favorite stories were Biters by Mark Morris and Ghost Dog & Pup...
Dark Duets (2014)

English

review 1: I don't think I have enough words to say how awesome this compilation is! I think it's a true testiment to the authors themselves how they can take a simple story and craft it into something that simply BLOWS AWAY any notions you might have about the topic told about. The two sto...

review 1: This book wasn't bad, but it wasn't nearly as good as I wanted it to be. It sounds good, a teenage girl is forced to go on the run after her mother is murdered and discovers hidden worlds under the city of London. The blurb on the cover lauds the blend of fantasy and realism, b...
Zaułek potworów (2012)
language
English

review 1: An all original anthology from some of todays hottest supernatural writers, featuring stories of monsters from the monster's point of view. In most stories we get the perspective of the hero, the ordinary, the everyman, but we are all the hero of our own tale, and so it must be t...

review 1: I liked it ok, and I actually really wanted to keep reading when i got into the second half. It's just that the ending was terrible. It was sad and pretty gruesome. And I didn't like how the thing with Adam, who she really liked and how it was great with him in the beginning,...
The Map of Moments (2009)

English
series
3.43 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I liked this book because it was sort of a historical mystical tour of New Orleans, and also gave a first-hand account of what post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans was like with detailed imagery. However, the characters were a little one dimensional, especially Gabrielle, and the ...

review 1: I enjoyed this to a point. It did capture my attention as I have always been fascinated with the Gold Rush in Alaska and have traveled through some of the areas. The adventure was captivating and Jack's ties to the wolf and some of the legends were interesting. But it got a li...
The Secret Journeys of Jack London, Book One: The Wild (2012)
language
English
3.42 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: When I picked up this book, I expected a Jack London-like outdoor adventure featuring a boy, wolves, and survival. However, this book is more hints of The Call of the Wild with a supernatural, ghost story twist. Authors Golden and Lebbon place a young Jack London in the Yukon s...
Die Wildnis (2011)
language
English

review 1: So, reading this book as an adult I would give it about 1, maybe two stars. But as a young boy in 8th or 9th grade who struggles with reading I'll give it a 3, maybe even a 4. There is plenty of adventure and action and blood to attract a reluctant readers attention, but someti...
The Wild (2011)
language
English
3.42 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I think this book is an amazing adventure book because of a lot of reasons. One reason is because it shows how much Jack wanted to find out about what happened in his past. Also how much detail was put in it by the authors (Tim Lebbon and Christopher Golden), for example when J...

review 1: I was intrigued when I first picked it up and continued to be enthralled by the way it was written and how the story was developed. But the ending was a little disappointing. It went by too quickly and I felt dissatisfied because there could have been a little more than what was ...
