A new master of terror reigns supreme, and in his most horrifying novel yet, the clash between good and evil explodes in an apocalyptic showdown few will survive.
From a funfest to a bloodfest….
Each year, the residents of Pine Deep host the Halloween Festival, drawing tourists and celebrities from across the country to enjoy the deliciously creepy fun. Those who visit the small Pennsylvania town are out for a good time, but those who live there are desperately trying to survive.
For a monstrous evil lives among them, a savage presence whose malicious power has grown too powerful even for death to hold it back. Only a handful of brave souls stand against the King of the Dead and a red wave of destruction. Daylight is fading, and a bad moon is rising over Pine Deep. Keep watching the shadows.

“One of the best supernatural thrillers of recent years.” (John Connolly, New York Times best-selling author)
I finally made it through the entire trilogy! Wish I would have just picked up the book at the library and not spent credits on the trilogy. Some of the material is wordy and repetitive, probably could have edited it a great deal and just made the trilogy a two part novel. The story was "meh" (all three combined, meh). Tom Weiner the narrator did all he could do with the material; he was very consistent in the entire trilogy. Seemed like a looooong build up to the finale.
For now, anyway.
Bad Moon Rising continues where the second installment left off. While it's not completely necessary that you listen to the first two books in the series (I found the first to be the weakest), the extra investment of time might be worth it.
Although I enjoyed BMR and thought it a worthy end to the series, one thing that I didn't enjoy was Maberry's use of B-Movie celebrities as minor characters. Unless it's necessary, I don't like it when authors do that, because, as opposed to characters of the author's own invention, you know that nothing drastic will happen to these people. No matter what happens to all the "fake" characters around them, they will make it through the story with absolutely no change (inside or out) from when they were first introduced.
This is a fun story, and if you've made it 2/3rds of the way in--why not finish?
No, I did not even get past chapter 3, this is just a horrible book.
It was boring.....
This book is going to make me cancel my membership if this cannot be resolved
