Product Description

Product Description

She’s a tall, dark beauty who claims to be the last living descendant of Countess Bathory. When she hires ex-con Layne Drover to accompany her to a jungle-shrouded island seeking an artifact of legendary evil, all he really cares about is getting paid. But when they reach their destination, a hurricane ravages the island, trapping them in a decayed mansion. Their quest to find her unholy grail soon becomes a struggle to survive when they discover they’re not the only ones seeking the artifact … and these “others” are not entirely human. Occult forces clash with bullets and brawn in a menacing race to obtain the RED CHALICE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adventure, Action, and Horror 18 Jan 2014
By James Reasoner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Any book with the phrase "jungle-shrouded island" in its description on Amazon is bound to be pretty good. I think we can take that as a given. Christopher Fulbright's novella RED CHALICE certainly doesn't disappoint in that respect. It's a pulp-inspired horror/adventure yarn that's rip-roaring fun.

Ex-con Layne Drover hires out for dirty jobs, and his current one fits the bill. Even though the setting is contemporary, RED CHALICE's set-up is very much like something out of a Weird Menace pulp. Layne is hired to accompany a beautiful, mysterious woman to that jungle-shrouded island I mentioned above, where the crumbling mansion of the woman's late uncle is located. She's inherited something very valuable from him, and she has to journey to the island to retrieve it.

No sooner do they get there, though, than a hurricane roars in, the boat captain they hired double-crosses them, ruthless gunmen show up, and things get even weirder, bloodier, and more dangerous as Layne and his client are trapped in a labyrinth of caverns under the old mansion.

The action hardly ever slows down, and when it does that's only because Fulbright has another nasty plot twist to spring on the reader. He packs a lot into this relatively short tale, and that's just the way I like 'em. I had a great time reading RED CHALICE, and you should check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Octane, Great Twist 15 Jan 2014
By Charles Gramlich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A mix of pulp noir and horror. Very fine work. Novella length. I really like the writing in this and there is a lot of action. The ending raises it that extra star to give it five. It was a twist I didn't see coming but worked out beautifully.
3.0 out of 5 stars So, so vamp tale 8 April 2014
By KateM - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
3.5*

Vamp tale that has a connection to the legend of Elizabeth Bathory.

This was enjoyable enough but didn't offer anything new to the genre. The writing was good but although there was a lot going on in this short read it read quite densely and I found it took a few days to get it finished.

The ending was good although I would question the characters actions as being authentic.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fun horror adventure! 3 April 2014
By John Grover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked this up on a free run and read it this past weekend in one sitting. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved Chris's style that was a cross between pulp adventure and noir. His descriptions were evocative and the horror villains were well done and creepy. I would sit down with this again and I don't say that with many books.
Highly recommended.
