    It is called Crota...and it has awakened. Sheriff Skip Harding is called out to investigate a double homicide unlike any he has seen before. The bodies have been torn to pieces in the woods. Some think it's a bear. But others whisper something different. "It is the Crota," they say, - the great beast of Native American legend that one day will reawaken. Now that day has arrived.

    Evelyn says: "Amazing story!"

    Great story!!! This was the first of Mr Goingback's books I read. All '5'? of his works are great. Now Mr. Goingback, it's time for you to start writing again! Your readers are waiting!!

    Just After Sunset - call it dusk, call it twilight, it's a time when human intercourse takes on an unnatural cast, when nothing is quite as it appears, when the imagination begins to reach for shadows as they dissipate to darkness and living daylight can be scared right out of you. It's the perfect time for Stephen King.

    J says: "King scores another coup"
    "Torturous Reading!"
    Overall

    Okay, I admit I didn't finish this one. It was too grueling. I'll try again later but a book that shows how King has lost his touch as compared to his earlier writings.

    Obadiah Grudge is tall, dark, and gaunt, though he prefers the word rich. He dresses well and has a taste for the finer things, so its a good thing that the mysteries he writes consistently hit the top of the best seller lists. The critics hate him; his public loves him. He has everything he wants. Then one day he gets a call. His estranged father is dead. Obadiah has inherited his father's monster-killing business, his lunatic of a partner, and his pet Raven. It's too bad he didnt inherit his father's skill.

    Michael says: "A Roller Coaster"
    "Good but annoying character"
    Overall

    This story would have been better if the main character hadn't been portrayed as such an arrogant wimp. I know, I've never come across such a character before but this one was extremely annoying.

    Last week they invaded Manhattan. This week they will destroy the world. The vampiric virus unleashed in The Strain has taken over New York City. It is spreading and soon will envelop the globe. Amid the chaos, Eph Goodweather - head of the Centers for Disease Control's team - leads a band out to stop these bloodthirsty monsters. But it may be too late.

    James says: "The Bar is Raised"
    "Great - as exected"
    Overall

    Part 1 (The Strain) was great. Part 1 (The Fall) was good too - perhaps not as good as part 1 but still within my top list of 'well-written' scary books.

    The army had said it was a training accident. But why had the coffin they sent home been sealed? So on a dark night, in a deserted field, Tom begins to unearth the mass grave where he hopes—and fears—that he will find his son's remains. He finds instead madness: corpses in chains and dead bodies that still move and grasp and clutch. And one little girl, dead and rotting, who promises to help Tom find what he's looking for, if only he will free her.

    Amanda says: "Twisted"
    "Okay"
    Overall

    This started book started a little slow. It turned out okay but very frustrating at times due to the major character asking the same questions (same doubts) throughout the story. He seemed a bit slow! He would see 'proof' that the girl 'moved' but even by the end of the story kept pondering 'did I see her move? She couldn't have moved' and on and on and on.

    All the official reports say they are dead—extinct since the late ’80s, when a fed named Arkeley nailed the last vampire in a fight that nearly killed him. But Arkeley knows what most people don’t: there is one left. In an abandoned asylum she is rotting, plotting, and biding her time in a way that only the undead can. When state trooper Laura Caxton calls the FBI looking for help in the middle of the night, it is Arkeley who gets the assignment.

    Flavius says: "A Pleasant Time-Killer"
    "Okay"
    Overall

    The story would have been much better without the Lesbian relationship (yuck). Don't care to hear about women attracted to each other in my horror stories.

    The visionary creator of the Academy Award-winning Pan's Labyrinth and a Hammett Award-winning author bring their imaginations to this bold, epic novel about a horrifying battle between man and vampire that threatens all humanity. It is the first installment in a thrilling trilogy and an extraordinary international publishing event.

    Flavius says: "Hokey But Fun"
    "Real all-out horror"
    Overall

    GREAT Vampire story with all the scares - no need for sex, gore - and oh 'boring romance'. Okay there were more than a few spots in the novel where folks wasted time and did stupid things - but overall, this was one of the scariest audios I've listened to in a while (and I'm not one to scare easily). Now just waiting for the 2nd book... Hurry up Guillermo and Chuck don't keep us hanging!! (Oh it did start off a bit slowly but the don't let that fool ya)
