4.0 out of 5 stars Hail Marduk! 6 Oct 2005
By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Following the restrained - almost genteel - horror of The Magic Cottage, Herbert returns to a more action-packed visceral style with Sepulchre. Essentially a mix between horror and thriller genre's, with the lead character being an ex-army private security operative charged with protecting a psychic businessman who believes his life to be in danger. The story takes a fair while to actually get moving, but once the action shifts to the psychic's mansion the supernatural element kicks in, with weird creatures in the lake, bands of roaming jackals, a cadaverous gatekeeper, and sacrifices to an ancient Sumerian serpent god. The novel is a little rough around the edges, with some overly broad Irish dialogue, (inevitably the lead character runs into the IRA), and despite some grisly flashback scenes the characterisation isn't particularly strong, but all in all this delivers enough action, twists and scares to make this an enjoyable romp.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great novel from the master of horror. 19 July 2004
By Chris Hall TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Herbert has managed to produce another outstanding novel here, with a dark tale of corruption and despair. Admittedly, the characterisation isn't the greatest aspect of the novel, as you never really get to feel anything for any of the principal characters, but this does not subtract from the novel as much as one would think. The book races by with a jam packed plot that will truly leave you not wanting to put the book down.
There was an extra chapter that was removed from the novel by Herbert himself, which you can read within Herbert's biography - Devil In The Dark. This is an intersting addition to the novel which expands on the relationship between Liam and Cora (two major characters), but was removed because Herbert thought it slowed the pace of novel down too much.
I'd definitely recommend this book to any fan of the horror genre. I'd say it is definetly one of Herbert's better novels. Still it's not a patch on The Rats, The Fog, The Survivor or '48. Well worth a read though! Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Herberts finest ever. 24 Feb 2001
Format:Paperback
Undoubtedly in my own opinion Herberts greatest ever book. The characters are as appealing and utterly hateable as they possibly could be. I'm a big fan of Koontz and King, but when Herbert is in this kind of form he is simply unbeatable. If you want to read your first Herbert novel this one is your only choice. Fast paced whilst also intricate, Herbert avoids the descriptive overkill that King and Koontz unfortunatly succumb to. He truly can make characters absolutely terrifying and utterly deplorable, and keeps the average read time of his book to 2 days. This being mainly due to the fact that you can read his books for long long periods, without tiring or becoming disinterested. If you like your horror sick and scary but with a vengeful ending this book is a must.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent horror 27 Aug 2012
By ElaineG TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Normally I am gripped by a James Herbert novel after the first page or so, but for some reason this book took me a couple of chapters to get into it, but I am so glad I persevered with it.

It is a very dark read revolving around Halloran, whose specialist security company has been hired to provide protection for Felix Kline, an individual who believes he is in danger of being kidnapped or murdered. For the main part, the story is set at Neath, Kline's extremely gothic sounding country residence with characters including Cora his beautiful devoted assistant and a bunch of extremely sadistic and violent bodyguards collected from all corners of the world. The house itself is creepy - something lurks in the lake, there is an unseen Gate Keeper and you certainly would not want to take the chance of running into the guard dogs! Definitely a house you would not want to spend a night in.

Not just horror, it also has all the elements of a good hard edged thriller with a cast of characters who really are amongst the most loathsome and sick you could find in any book. There hardly seems to be anyone in the book who isn't twisted with strange desires and who isn't prepared to do what it takes to indulge them. Halloran himself has his own demons to face in the book, demons which went a long way to shaping the man from the boy.

As you can expect from James Herbert, the story is extremely well written and builds slowly but surely to an absolutely terrifying climax. As stated earlier it is a very dark read, with practically every scene containing some element of horror or weirdness with no light relief whatsoever. There is a lot of violence and it is extremely gory - in fact James Herbert seems to go out of his way with every book to find new ways to shock and disgust you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Amazing! 6 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I never thought I would like any James Herbert books, as I had heard some horror stories - quite literally! However, I rented this audio cd out of the library and was completely bowled over by the descriptions of everyone and everything, maybe especially because of the reader himself bringing it to life. Even with the more grusome parts in the narrative you are still spellbound by the voice and story and are completely unaware of time, and a whole day could pass just listening and feeling that you are totally inside the story. You feel for the characters and care what happens to everyone, especially the evil ones, as you REALLY get to know what makes them tick and their ends are colourful to the least. I haven't even read the book as this was just too good to listen too, and I highly recommend it too anyone even if your not a serious horror fan like myself.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear.
Quite exciting and lots of suspense but the 'James Bond' type hero didn't do a lot for me. Some good excitement (in places) but it's not a novel I'd read again. Read more

I found this book not to be as gripping as other Herbert books I have read. I might have to have another read some time just to be certain.

4.0 out of 5 stars very James Patterson
Just what my title says, a good little yarn albeit a little generic and quite predictable. It's worth a read though, especially for the price of the Kindle edition.
