4.0 out of 5 stars brilliant, 18 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Day by Day Armageddon (Paperback)
Day by day armageddon portrays the story of one mans struggle for survival as the world is wiped out by plague and the dead rise up. Chillingly written in a similar style to I Am Legend, and Lucifer Wars, with inflections of Last Man On Earth. This is a nice story that is quite gripping in places and would translate well into Film in the way that omega man starring charlton heston translated. It would be good to see authors like this hitting the mainstream as there are too few new authors that have writing capabilities like this. Keep it up!

5.0 out of 5 stars bloodbath, 9 Jan. 2006
Vampire soldiers v Werewolves is a horror story that cant go wrong. The novelization of the film was brilliant. We see the Werewolf leader trying to end the reign of vampire terror once and for all, but the the 'civilized' vamps have other ideas. Their top hunter A vampiress called Selene (reminisent of Clarrisa from Lucifer Wars by stuart vowell) is given the task of eliminating the werewolves, but she falls for the human that holds the key to the heirachy of the werewolf and vampire heritage. Lots of bloodshed and lots of gun play, the action explodes from the pages just as well as it did from the screen. There is nothing lost and indeed there is something gained as you get an insight into the actual feelings of the central characters that a film cannot always capture.
If you loved the film then you will love the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars lots of sex, 9 Jan. 2006
As a fan of this series i found that this particular venture did lack a decent plot line, but on the plus side there was lots of sex and violence as Anita trails a serial killer that is preying on strippers. That is the plot in a nutshell, there are still a few references to the sub-plots like her 'up and down' relation ships and her P.D. involvements. Over all was i gripped? Well no not really, but i still think that this has a place within a well run series. Laurel is not as long winded with this book either as was with some of her previous works where she appeared to be turning into a female version of 'Steven King'. Parts of this book were reminisent of Lucifer Wars by stuart vowell but nothing like as bloodthirsty. A little more attention to the plot with the same level of bloosdshed would take the series to new heights.

5.0 out of 5 stars top performance, 28 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Twisted Souls (Hardcover)
Shaun Hutson has certainly matured as a writer since his earlier works such as Erebus (recently re-released in hardback.) This is quite slow moving to begin with but launches itself with Hutsons usual bloodthirsty ferocity at roughly the halfway point. Not for the timid, but fans will love this one. As will fans of Robert mcmahon (bethanys sin) stuart vowell (lucifer wars)as comparable horror writers.


Black Harvest (Deathlands)
Black Harvest (Deathlands)
by James Axler
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars death lands, 26 Sept. 2005
Well it was another exiting adventure, a little samey and easily comparable with dark reconing. As long as you can forgive the writing pool for forgetting some of the earlier rules of the deathlands and the fact that central characters have had slight personality changes then you can enjoy this book for what it is. violence and bloodshed for the sake of it and bravo for that. i do think that James Axler would be slightly displeased by characters such as Myldred wyeth and i cant wait for the day that she gets killed off.
