The setting for Sam is reminiscent of something out of an early James Herbert book although the narrative is pure Iain Rob Wright. We have, in contrast to the stuffy stately mansion, an odd colourful pairing in Angela and Tim; a gay former priest and a paranormal debunker respectively. These main characters are brought to life as we are given vivid insights into what has brought them to this point.
The tension throughout this book just never lets up. Even when we aren't witnessing the increasingly strange and erratic behaviour of Sam, there seems to be danger lurking around every corner. We are constantly questioning the motives of the other occupants of the house, even Sam's mother seems to have an agenda.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was rapt for two nights. The ending of this novel leaves the reader wondering what happens next and I hope that this was done intentionally...sequel perhaps?
I bought this book having no idea what it was about, but knowing that I'd most likely got another all-nighter from this author.
The story is about that age old subject of possession, and there are plenty of (acknowledged) cliches along the way. However, there is a twist right at the end which I washed expecting!
Iain's style of writing captures you and pulls you right into this story. I felt like I was in the house along with Angela, Tim, Frank and Sam.
The characters are written really well - you can picture them in your mind, and watch their endearing traits along with the horror played out before you.
I'll admit that I'm a massive fan of Iain's work, but this book really stood out for me, the way that Sam is written and the way the story evolved gave me proper goosebumps and really scared me at times!
Such a unique and well written novel among the tons of similar offerings around at the moment. Bloody fantastic writing.
The premise is of an alcoholic former priest who has lost her faith, and a paranormal investigator/debunker shall we say, who have to join forces to save a poor 'innocent' child from what looks like a case of possession. But Sam and the 'being' inside of him has other ideas. Follow along as the death toll mounts and and even the faithful aren't safe.
'Sam' is just one of those book where the author grabs you from the first word and pulls you into a story so believable and so terrifying at the same time. I couldn't put it down, and all I can do is praise Iain for his brilliant writing and letting me become a part (even for just a short time) a part of this deliciously creepy tale. I won't spoil the story for those who haven't read it (and obviously you might not have done if you're reading these reviews), but sufficed to say I was thrilled to learn of another book where we meet a very familiar character :)
The atmosphere is well developed and the old dark house routine lends a nod to the fantastic with weather changes and mood setting a very solid setting.
The only complaint I have would be with the forced catchphrases that one character utters which comes across a bit unnatural. This is a small complaint which does not spoil the readers enjoyment of this good yarn.
Overall, a very interesting horror novel with extra bonus of some interesting short stories that are well worth a read. Worth every penny spent.

Is he possessed? Is it a scam?
Kept me gripped to the final conclusion! No one is who they seem. Who to trust?
Really enjoyed this book. It's not just your normal possession story. In fact you could possibly even describe this as a bit of an action story, but of course it still had all the... Read morePublished 2 months ago by andylennon
