This is the second book I've read by Patrick and it was even better than the first. I love movies set in prisons and I love horror and this book combined both for me. The charactors in the book are amazing. The setting is described well and you can imagine what the charactors are feeling. Its fast paced and brutal which if your anything like me you'll love. This will be one of very few books I re-read.

Four stars. It is pretty grim and gory, and zips along nicely. Only qualm is the atrocities inflicted on still-living victims who would presumably expire earlier.

Do not read this if you are of a gentle disposition or if you have just eaten. You have been warned. If you are not in the above caterories, read on. It's great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Freaky but Entertaining! 5 Jan. 2014
By HaloLove - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
***** WARNING ******

Before you read this you must:

1. Have an open mind
2. Absolutely love the genre of horrific gore
3. Abolish all your morals through out the duration of this story
4. Have an incredible open mind
5. HAVE A UNWAVERING, INCREDIBLE OPEN MIND

LOL

So I wasn't a huge fan of The Preserve. Although it was an entertaining read and it was really well written, none of the characters captured my attention. I just didn't care for any of them. Now this story my heart went out to Albert. I wanted to jump in this story and protect him. I'm always a cheerleader for the under dog. But even though I understand why he did what he did, it was still wrong but I still wanted to protect him. Anyway...

This story is the definition of gore. And some of the victims... I don't know.... Just beware reading this. LOL.

You know when I find an author I like, I love to stalk them on Facebook to see when their next story is coming out, or beg them to bring a character back from the dead or have the next female interest look like me (haha... It's worth a try) but I'm kind of afraid to stalk Mr. Lestewka. He has that creative mind that freaks me out. (O.o ) Seriously... I'm entertained but I'm completely freaked out!
Like... 90% of the things that took place in this story... I would never have thought of. And I'm thinking, how in the hell did he even think of something like that? Like I said freaky but entertaining!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blood and Gore Galore~ 9 July 2012
By MizNikki - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Can you picture being locked up and with no guards, no rules, and a limited food supply. You can't? Well, you don't need to imagine it because this Patrick fella does a mighty fine job of showing you just how bad it can be. This read was raw and relentless in its pursuit to scare you or just plain gross you out. At times I found body fluids coming out a certain way to be far-fetched, but then again I've never seen it done in real life. The writing was really good and I hope this author isn't a one trick pony. It would be really fantastic if there was a sequel. Sharpen your teeth and be ready to bite down on this fleshy read. Recommended for Blood, Feces, and Gore fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars disturbingly good 4 Mar. 2014
By Jacob Dring - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An incredibly visceral narrative featuring a variety of unsavory yet intriguing characters. Antiheroes would be a stretch, but perhaps each reader will distinguish their own. The action is pretty heavy and often disturbingly described. This book makes Stephen King's most twisted story look like a Disney production in comparison. The plot is pretty straightforward although there is no creature/monster (not really) whereas the summary might suggest. I believe the author's other book, The Preserve, is the better read. however, if you like horror/thriller books, give this one your time - unless you're squeamish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book 14 July 2013
By Aaron Burckhardt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm a big hardcore horror fan and this is the first book I've read from this author. I find him very similar to Tim Curran. This could easily be read in one setting(took me two), as it's fast paced. NOT for the squeamish.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great prison gore 2 Feb. 2015
By Dorothé Wallander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Quick, intense read which should satisfy most readers gore-crawing with this brutal fix. The story takes place in a prison with no walls, guards nor cells, leaving the inmates to a state of anarchy.
