Winner of the Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel
From a master of horror comes an apocalyptic showdown between the residents of a secluded, rural town and the deadly evil that confronts them wherever they turn.
Evil doesn’t die.
The cozy little town of Pine Deep buried the horrors of its past a long time ago. Thirty years have gone by since the darkness descended and the Black Harvest began, a time when a serial killer sheared a bloody swath through the quiet Pennsylvania village. The evil that once coursed through Pine Deep has been replaced by cheerful tourists getting ready to enjoy the country’s largest Halloween celebration in what is now called “The Spookiest Town in America.”
It just grows stronger.
But then—a month before Halloween—it begins. Unspeakably desecrated bodies. Inexplicable insanity. An ancient evil walks the streets, drawing in those who would fall to their own demons and seeking to shred the very soul of this rapidly fracturing community. Yes, the residents of Pine Deep have drawn together and faced a killer before. But this time, evil has many faces—and the lust and will to rule the earth. This struggle will be epic.
Keep chilled: listen to more in the Pine Deep trilogy.

“Maberry supplies plenty of chills, both earthbound and otherworldly, in this atmospheric horror novel…This is horror on a grand scale, reminiscent of Stephen King’s heftier works.” (Publishers Weekly)
Not sure, I only listened to a couple chapters because i couldn't get past the monotone narrator
Do not waste your money or credits. I'm requesting my credit to be returned since I could only tolerate a couple of chapters.
I'm a hardcore reader and art student. ;)
This audiobook ranks in the higher middle. I still have some audiobook to listen to but when I get finished with my other audiobooks, the ranking GRB might change.
I might compared it to some of Stephen King's supernatural works.
No, I haven't listened to any of his other works.
When Val attacks Carl for revenge for her father.
I'm going to get the second and third book now!!
I collect spores, molds, and fungus.
Really very boring. Didn't finish it. I liked the zombie series he did so I thought I'd try other books by this author... Bad idea. Waste of a credit.
Yes. The story is different and fresh. Not at all what I expected. A happy surprise.
Excellent. He does a great job of individualizing each character.
Held my interest from first word to last. Couldn't listen fast enough.
Have the entire trilogy now, listening to number 3.
I have a long drive to work and audible makes it so much more bearable
Great book, love the characters, love the story, love the whole trilogy.
I have a long daily commute and Audible has been a God send. I accidently came across Maberry's books and I am hooked! I really enjoyed this trilogy. All 3 of the books are great and I have to say I was disappointed when I heard "Audible hopes you have enjoyed......." on Bad Moon Rising. Maberry's Joe Ledger series is great too! Sadly I have listened to everything of his that Audible has and now have to wait for the next one.
Tell us about yourself!
story kept you interested, all 3 books in this series are great, coming from a devoted
SKING fan, that is saying somthing.
Some characters he did not hit the mark, but others were perfect
LISTEN TO THEM ALL, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED
I love to read almost anything but romace. Sci-fi is usually at the top of my list followed by mysteries.
This was the first book I read by Jonathan Mayberry and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This book kept me entertained and wanting more. I often found myself sitting in my drive way or the parking lot at work just to listen to more. The character development was wonderful. I easily feel in love with some characters and absolutely hated others. This book ends with you wanting more and asking lot of questions, so I can understand why some people were a little frustrated by that. Fortunately for me, I did not start the series until all three had been released so I was able to listen to all three right away. I did finish this series and thought it was great. I will read more by Mayberry.
I thought the narrator did a fantastic job.
I'm what some folks call, "extremely average."
Jonathan Maberry is one of my favorite authors. GRB was part creepy classic, complete with dark woods and shadowy cornfields, and part thriller with bad guys and guns - but it was just too dang long. There is a terrific build up to the action-packed showdown, where all factions in the story collide, but at that point it's too prolonged and the momentum is lost. I'm hesitant to finish the series -I really want to know what happens, but I'm afraid it might take to much time.
