With shades of the masters of horror, Stephen King and Dean Koontz, `Enter, Night' is a spine-tingling tale of terror wreaking havoc in Parr's Landing, a small town in Canada. From its bloody outset, this is a chilling tale that draws heavily on the infamous Wendigo legends where men, and in this case women as well, are dehumanised and seek to drain the blood of their hapless victims spurred on by an all controlling demonic figure. Not only is this a truly terrifying read, but there is also a very interesting `human' story running parallel to the horror as three individuals, previously exiled from the town due to the actions of the wonderfully scaberous matriarch, Adeline Parr, who dominates the lives of the people within the community, return and face her scorn and acidity. As they seek to assimilate themselves back into the community, they cross paths with the brilliantly named Native American professor, William Lightning, who is seeking answers to the unexplained deaths in the town both now and in the past and who firmly believes that supernatural forces are at work. I really enjoyed this accomplished and well-paced tale of terror that kept me reading into the wee small hours and if you like to give yourself the shivers this is well worth a read...

One of the best spine chilling vampire books I've read since Salem's Lot. Atmospheric and a slow burn. Compelling, but had to keep putting it down as I was getting too tense....

A truely chilling vampire novel. The story builds up slowly into a very frightening attack on the protagonists.The ending is rather inconclusive- maybe there is a sequel.(hopefully).The novel is very long but do not be put off by this,the atmospheric description of pure evil pervades through every page.The horror in this book comes in many guises and it's not confined to the supernatural.The evil of some of the humans are equally horrific.It's very reminiscent of Stephen King.
This is a great read -get it as it's well worth the price

I made it through a quarter of this book before giving up which was a shame as I really enjoyed the first few chapters. The writer certainly sketched some very engaging characters and there were some good popcorn scares.

Ultimately, what put me off was the abundance of adjectives and over elaborate descriptions. I thought that in many parts the prose tended to bludgeon with detail rather than paint with shade. I felt the book could have done with another edit as a result.

The plot also felt telegraphed in places.

Not the greatest vampire story.The last part of the book,the supposed copies of the priests report is better than the main story.
