    "Maberry does it again..Excellent!!!"
    Would you listen to Bad Moon Rising again? Why?

    Yes- characters are intriguing and story is compelling.


    What other book might you compare Bad Moon Rising to and why?

    You know that is really hard... I like the fantasy/sci-fi/horroresque novels and the way Jonathan writes and the characters he develops are very unique! I just like his style!


    Which character – as performed by Tom Weiner – was your favorite?

    Malcolm Crow of course!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Jonathan does such a good job with his character development that I found myself getting internally angry with Ruger and Vic Wingate!


    Any additional comments?

    Great book... I highly recommend the Joe Ledger series!!!

    "It all comes together in Book 3!"

    Well, having invested several weeks listening to Jonathan Mayberry drag the reader through a rough first volume in Ghost Road Blues, and begin to mature as both a writer and storyteller in Book 2, Dead Man's Song, he finally hit his stride in Book 3 of The Pine Deep Trilogy, Bad Mon Rising. Not only is the plotting much more fluid but the overall storytelling has greatly improved since Book 1, and Mr. Mayberry throws every gruesome thing he can come up with at the reader as he brings all the warewolves, vampires of various kinds (including the zombie-esque "dead heads") and some new characters that liven up the storyline into the mix to make for a much faster paced and much, much more entertaining end to his trilogy of novels. I've beat on Mr. Weiner, the reader, in the previous two volumes' reviews for his stilted way of interpreting the story and it's characters, so I feel obliged to give him props in this final book as he seemed to have gained a better idea of how to read horror fiction. Again, fair warning: when I used the word "gruesome", I meant it. Even for horror fiction, which I've been reading since my youth, I don't think I've read/listened to a more overall dark and bloody story than Bad Moon Rising, not even in all the zombie fiction I read. No readers, this one is downright, well, gruesome! I hope that one day Mr. Mayberry will revisit Pine Deep now that his writing abilities have found their stride in the horror & thriller genres represented in the Joe Ledger series. So if you have made it through Books 1 & 2 of The Pine Deep Trilogy, you will be rewarded with this final installment. Just don't listen while eating. Never while eating.

    Finally, the conclusion to the pine deep trilogy. The first two books left alot of open questions, here is where they are all answered. Great job Mr Maberry.

    And terrifically entertaining close to the series. Lots of build up and back story in the first two books! This one really does it though!

    "You have to read all three!"

    The first book leaves you wondering a little where it's going, the second is where it starts to gel and gets creepier. The third book is where it all comes together in quite a thriller!!

    "Vampires, warewolves, ghosts & zombies oh my!"

    It's a little slow at times but The characters redeem the story and there are times when I was truly concerned about their well being.

    An unexpected twist on the vampire warewolf zombie ghost genre - and yes all of these are somehow in the tale!
