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)
Yes- characters are intriguing and story is compelling.
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!
Malcolm Crow of course!
Jonathan does such a good job with his character development that I found myself getting internally angry with Ruger and Vic Wingate!
Great book... I highly recommend the Joe Ledger series!!!
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.
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!!
An avid reader and listener with eclectic tastes... One unifying them is my love of humor, mystery and great narration.
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!
I am a married grandma of ... Um...8! I deliver papers every night and listen to audio books much of the time. I love my job! The kids come with sometimes and they listen to some stuff I get.
In the thrilling, heart stopping conclusion to the Pine Deep Trilogy we see the great battle for good and love come to an earsplitting, gut wrenching. crescendo. You'll be at the edge of your seat with your fingernails dug in as you follow Crow, Val and Mike to their fate. Enjoy!
Wow, what a great series. I first became a fan of J. Maberrys with his Joe Ledger Books. After I ripped through all 5 like a wildman, anything from Maberry had to be great so I added the Pine Deep Trilogy to my "To Do" list. The only thing I can complain about is that I waited so long to get started on it. Since the next Ledger book is coming out later this month (3/32/14) I decided to queue them up and go!
I listened to all three back to back to back so this review is going to encompass all 3 books, but dont worry, Ill avoid spoilers. One piece of advice, forget everything you know about werewolves and vampires. Maberry has a really nice twist that will leave you a little lost until Bad Moon Rising (book 3) when it all comes together nicely.
Great writing, great story, great characters, great narrator in Tom Weiner. When I first started I felt a Stephen King vibe in the depth of the characters and surroundings, but not a rip off way, just in the buildup. The story unfolds over the three books, and you are given bits along the way. Maberry treats us to a variety of bad guys, not just one or two. You get your pick of who you hate the most. So for me, this was a real good listen. If you like your listens in the 10 hour time frame, then this may be much for you since you'll invest 47 hours in it. If you like a nice long walk in the park of death and mayhem, then this is a good one. @byf2
The good guys win! They survive werewolves, vampires, ghosts, nefarious drugged candy, child abuse and bad coffee
I compared. It, unwisely, to the Joe Ledger series. I read all three books in this particular series, but you do not need to do so. Skip 1 and 2. This book recaps nicely, brings you up to date and proceeds at a good clip. It is not as good as the Ledger series books but it was worth the credit for the most part. The end was a bit rushed.
He was a good narrator and had a good repertoire of voices, a nice pitch to his voice and appropriate pace.
Buy this book, skip 1 and 2 of this series and use the credits to get the Joe ledger series. Maberry is a hoot in those.
Characters with depth and heroes you want to root for
The showdown with gris wall and terry the wolf comes to defend his wife
No but I was saddend
It was a different take on the traditional werewolves and vampires
