Book Description

Refuge, New Hampshire, is a small town. The kind found on postcards. Their biggest concern is the rowdy summertime revelers making their way up from Massachusetts and New York. And with most of the town’s residents in neighboring Ashland, for the Fourth of July fireworks show, Refuge is quieter than usual. That is, until the Baptist church’s bell starts ringing—on its own.

The bell chimes faster and faster, reaching a frenetic pace, as though rung by the Devil himself. But the bell is just the beginning. The air shimmers. The night-time sky fills with a burning red aurora. The moon, previously a crescent, is now full. And just hours after dusk, the sun returns to the sky, revealing an endless desert where there was once a mountainous pine forest.

Led by ex-Army Ranger turned surrealist painter, Griffin Butler, Sheriff Rebecca Rule and her deputy, Helena Frost, the residents of Refuge must weather an ever changing onslaught of otherworldly dangers while trying to uncover how and why the landscape beyond town shifts every time the church bell tolls.

As a sequence of horrific events threaten to destroy the town, the residents must band together, search for answers and find a way to defend their homes, or Refuge will be lost.

REFUGE was a serialized novel released in five parts, but it is now available as one complete novel. So read the individual parts or the whole completed novel. Either way, you’re in for a creepy ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars adventure and good solid story telling with good 2 Sept. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I started reading Refuge hoping to be entertained. Instead I was not only entertained, but also thrown into a world of excitement, adventure and good solid story telling with good, strong characters that you could connect to.

The authors promised us five books that would comprise of a "first season" if this were made for television, and you can tell that was their intention when you read this book. From the start you are thrown into an intriguing mystery of mysterious church bells, changing landscapes and all manner of monsters.

But that's not all. The characters feel real as well. You feel that, somehow, you know people in your own life that are like the characters in this book. You can connect to them. They don't just help the plot to move forward. They also have their own little personal stories going on. That is the glue that holds these five books together. The characters. And just when you think you know everyone there is to know in the town, Bishop then introduces more to get to know and become involved with.

If anything "Refuge" reminded me a little like Stephen King's "Under the Dome", featuring a town isolated from the outside world, full of mystery and intrigue, but, thankfully, with some answers as well. It's funny, scary, exciting and at some times terrifying.

Each book is co-written by different authors, but they all connect to each other seamlessly as if written by one. By the end of the book I was crying out for more. I'd definitely recommend "Refuge" to other readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Any where but here. 19 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The name of this small town suggests its a safe place to be,but after an event happpens,its the last place on earth you would want to be.The town and those inside on the 4th july end up on a tour of something like Dantes 7 visions of hell.Part sci fi/horror that would be enjoyed by those who enjoyed tv shows like lost and the dome,although the book takes nothing much from these.Jeremy bishop states that the book pans out like a tv series,and this it does very well with the bonus that you dont have to wait until next week for the next episode.The fact that the 5 sections of the book were co written with other writers did not spoil the style-you would assume it was written by one.My opinion,it was a great read and did so in 3 nights.It was the kind of story one would expect from mr king.More like this,please mr bishop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blown Away 26 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like another review on here I was a little sceptical about reading 5 books by 5 different authors, most who I have read individually.
These guys are genius it absolutely works, I quite literally could not put these books down!

I can not recommend this series highly enough and for books 1-5 it's a bargain price too, so what more do you need?
A fantastic read, by some truly great authors, for a great price!

4.0 out of 5 stars A mixture of genres that works so well 30 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had this title on my wish list for ages, something about the premise in the blurb kept nagging at me "read something other than zombie and werewolf books for goodness sake" so I did and I was so glad I did, it's very difficult to comment beyond the blurb without spoiling the ride so I won't, all I'll say is take a chance and read it, if like me Laymon, Straub, King and Herbert formed part of your history in horror then you will find all the aspects you enjoyed right here

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want a fun, fast paced 3 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I could not put this book down, I don't know if I could have waited for each book to come out (even though it was only a couple weeks between each release). If you want a fun, fast paced, insane nightmare filled book, this is the one for you. Robinson and crew did an amazing job on this series and you will not be disappointed. This would make an awesome movie or mini-series, as long as Robinson was involved.
