Publisher's Summary

Many years ago, a group of travelers took a doomed trip through Hell, Texas. Not long after their fateful journey, the town was discovered by Texas DPS Trooper Garrett Parker. Garrett was promoted to Texas Ranger as a result of his heroics. Over a decade has passed since that fateful day. Yet something terrible is happening again.

Motorists are vanishing without a trace and now children are disappearing from El Paso in record numbers. Garrett is sent back to the area to investigate. There is no way a town like Hell, Texas, could still be functioning, but he can't help the impending feeling of dread as he Returns to Hell Texas.

    Story
    "Wild, crazy and chilling."

    This book is wild and twisted, in the best kind of way, kind of like something Rob Zombie would think up but not make a movie about because there is not quite enough blood and maiming. Wild characters and plotlines keep this story flowing, and David Quimby does a good job bringing the characters to life.

    I was given a copy of this book free of charge by the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an honest review through Audiobook Boom.

    Story
    "More gore than horror"

    I did not enjoy this. I am not afraid of gore, I do not shy away from something just because it's gross.
    This book was listed as "extreme horror" but there was hardly "horror" except maybe "horrific" situations and "horrible" writing...
    It wasn't for me personally, because it was like reading the dream diary of a serial killer and his fantasies of what he'd like to do to people.

    I am in no way saying that nobody would like this book, but be aware that you are getting not a scary horror book, but a book that simple uses gore for shock value. The writing style isn't great, either, so it didn't even have that redeeming quality.

    If you love gore, you may like this. But even if you like gore, you may not walk away entertained. It was just gross, not entertaining.

    This audiobook was given to me for free in exchange for an honest review by Audioboom.

    "Twisted"
    Was Return to Hell Texas worth the listening time?

    This book was truly twisted in the best sense of the word. I am not a big horror book fan, but it was interesting. It is refreshing when the unexpected occurs. I haven't read the original book, but I got the jist of it from this sequel. It is very graphic and the characters are definitely ones that won't be easily forgotten. If you got a kick out of Rob Zombie movies, this will be right up your alley. The narrator did a good job as well.

    Story
    "Wonderful for Blood and Gore"
    Where does Return to Hell Texas rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have quite a few different lists, but for the Horror books list, i would say this ranks #1


    What did you like best about this story?

    It left me shocked and grossed me out quite a bit. There was a couple parts that made me shudder


    What does David Quimby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he knows when to use inflections and when to keep it monotone to show the state of mind all these characters are in depending on their circumstances for being in Hell, Texas.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the end... when the new leader explained his plans for the future of Hell, Texas, and it's scary to think people like that really are out there.... in plain sight

    Story
    "Not for the weak stomach. Extreme horror"

    This is EXTREME horror. I squirmed and shuddered I cringed and I'm pretty sure I threw up a bit in my own
    Mouth as I listened And imaged some of the scenes. Absolutely horrifying and terrifying in its gritty disgustingness. Extreme characters extreme scenes. If you can stand it it's great. It is what it advertises to be. If you can't take it for that don't pick it up. If you can it will shake you to the core. I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookboom in exchange for an unbiased review

    "Don't Ignore The Warning: It's EXTREME"

    This is a story meant to push your buttons, especially your senseless violence button.

    If you enjoy watching slasher movies and you root for the slasher to win - this is for you. If you think David Cronenberg movies or Chuck Palahniuk stories are too tame - this is for you.

    On the other hand if you drive the carpool to a religious day camp please pick something else to entertain the kids.

    Story
    "Horrific and Twisted"

    I am a little on the fence about this one. I don't usually shy away from blood and gore, but this book had me squeamish and wanting to fast-forward through some parts. I hadn't read or listened to the first book, Hell Texas, so I wasn't aware of what I was getting into. I have to agree with another reviewer who said that there was no payoff in the end. I kept expecting at least one of the "good guys" to make these people pay; for good to trump evil in the end, but that didn't happen. Without a redemption in the end, I feel like I was just bombarded with gratuitous sexual and violent scenes. I know this is strictly a matter of taste, so I still gave the book 3 stars because the writer clearly is talented at this genre (even if he has a sick and twisted imagination...lol). The narrator was great...no complaints there. His voice was perfect for the book and his character voices were nice. Nothing too over-the-top or unbelievable to draw away from the story.

    I received this ebook at no charge via AudioBookBoom in exchange for an honest review, so my honest opinion is this: Heed the warnings. This book is very graphic and violent, so if you don't have a stomach for that, you will not enjoy this book in any way. If, however, you like that sick and twisted stuff, you will enjoy the heck out of this, as long as you aren't looking for a happy ending.

    "Sadly, No Pay Off For Me"

    “Return To Hell Texas” is a short horror story that is at the extreme end of the spectrum with its horror and violence. This sequel takes place a little over ten story years after “Hell Texas.” Thankfully, you don’t have to have read the original story to follow and enjoy this one. Author Tim Miller seems to specialize in dark, extreme horror stories, which I don’t usually have a problem with. In this case I did. If I’m going to read/listen to a story with the level of extreme violence and horror found in Tim Miller’s work, I have to have a payoff at the end. I personally need the good guy to win, otherwise I feel like all I read/listened to is an exercise in depravity and not a complete story. If I can’t have a win for the good guy, then I need some ray of hope that the good guy will regroup and eventually stop the bad guy in the end. For me, it’s like that. The empire can strike back all it wants as long as in the end it still has to deal with the return of the Jedi. In the case of “Return To Hell Texas,” I endured all of Mr. Miller’s well written horror but got no pay off for my trouble. I must say, however, based on the overwhelming amount of good reviews for this story on Amazon, I definitely seem to be in the minority on this.

    Finally, this audio book was provided by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an honest review courtesy of Audio Book Blast.

    It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.

    Story
    "It Is What It Is, Extreme"

    "Return to Hell Texas" slightly reminds me of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" on A LOT of steroids. It's pretty sick but if you were to take the gross parts out, this isn't bad writing. There are many places that are hard to listen to.

    It's as scary as the title says, especially if you've ever been in that part of the country where there's pretty much nothing. Desolate.

    David Quimby's narration was excellent. He's a very versatile voice actor who's able to separate the characters out with ease. Overall, he did a great job with this story.

    I was given a copy of this book free of charge by the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an honest review through Audiobook Boom.
