HASH(0x95001204) out of 5 stars Great, quick - scary - read 29 Oct. 2013
By Katie Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Catalysts is perfect for a quick afternoon read. Even better if it is a drizzly and/or dark afternoon, because then the particular spell of this book can work its full - horrific - magic on your soul.

The book presents readers with a true monster, one that is fascinating to watch, even as my stomach twisted a little bit at the carnage it wrecks. As much as I wanted to slap them, the characters are very real. It was easy to see a little bit of myself not only in the two main characters, but also in the ensemble cast. These men and women were the readers' entry into the terror going on within the celebrity convention and each one was a well-drawn personality to either hope for, or revile.

I particularly enjoyed the juxtaposition of the scenes in the elevator with the chaos and slaughter outside. And as a warning to those faint of heart, it is slaughter. Personally, I enjoyed it - the descriptions were delightfully gross, and at one point, I swore I could feel the squelching of blood under my toes. The elevator scenes themselves were harrowing in their own way. It is never an easy thing to watch two people help each other spiral deeper into a personal darkness.

The story was tight and the culprits. . . I don't want to spoil anything, but it was clever. Not only that, the book itself was a slow-burn creepy that hit me the next day. I enjoyed it and I recommend it - Catalysts is perfect for this time of year, or any time you want to peer into the darkness.

HASH(0x9591899c) out of 5 stars About Darn Time 29 Oct. 2013
By Rich Weber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I get to read a fantastic book in the Horror Genre. Whole lot of awful out there.

Technically sound(I found one typo at about the mid point of the book) well paced scary book. What I consider to be the two main characters are in depth, fully rounded people with an awful lot of personal drama to work through. The supporting cast is properly spaced and fleshed out as well as the setting and scenery.

Both Darla and Jeff are characters I could slip into their shoes, and stroll around their life for a bit. The premise and story line is a good one, the dialogue while heavy in some spots is necessary to drive home the story. Plenty of action, gore, blood and guts for even the most hardened goth tween.

Now this is an author whose work I try never to miss. I love his Legends of Windemere series so of course I had to pick this one up!


I have to admit that this is not this author's best work. However I will give props to Mr. Yallowitz for trying to branch out into a new genre other than fantasy. After all, everyone needs to try something new once in a while.

I really liked that the majority of this book takes place at a sci-fi convention at a hotel. I love going to conventions myself and I know how fun they can be! We have main characters that are scattered around the hotel and are trying to get to safety. My two favorite characters are trapped together in an elevator and are ready to tear each other apart! They also find out that they have more in common than they ever thought they would.

Moving on, there are evil spirits/shadows that are taking over people's bodies and forcing them to rip people to shreds. They can be killed like a normal human can, but they are tougher, stronger and faster than a regular human.

It's vaguely hinted that children are immune to these shadows and it's a little disappointing that this plot point is never explored. But it is shown that when the crazies die, these spirits/shadows flee the bodies.

The ending is just okay and I won't ruin it for you here.


Back to what I said, this wasn't this author's best work, but I can see potential in him to write a better horror story than this one. Not everyone is going to like this story, but if the author tries his hand in horror again I'll surely pick it up.
HASH(0x94aef7ec) out of 5 stars Not What I Expected 24 Jan. 2014
By K. Cross - Published on Amazon.com

This book started out awesome. I really liked the clash of the two main characters, the set up of their lives and their struggles, and then all of a sudden all hell breaks loose and I never really figured out what was going on.

I feel like the zombie-ness of the novel came completely without warning. Almost half the book is preparation, and then total mass killing and death follows. The descriptions are great if you like that kind of zombie-flesh-eating (which I don't, but didn't mark down the rating for that). However, the ending is awful. It felt contrived, like it was thought of last minute, and made no sense. There were a few loose ends that I felt needed some attending, and a couple of grammar/spelling mistakes.

Because the writing wasn't the problem, I'd read more of Yallowitz work. But this book just wasn't my favorite.
