Publisher's Summary

Some say that true evil never dies, it merely lies dormant, awaiting the next opportunity to rise from its dark lair and visit itself upon humankind again.

Jack Hunger, a cop in Lee County, Florida, never gave it much thought. He purchased the 20-year-old Pentax K1000 camera at a perfectly respectable thrift store, and it was to be the beginning of a new hobby for the reclusive crime scene photographer.

The dismembered body of rookie cop Justin Sims and the bullet-riddled corpse of Russian Mafia killer Sergei Veselov are Jack Hunger's first subjects. The job seems to be just another brutal day at the office, until he develops the photographs taken with his new camera in his home darkroom.

As the images of the two corpses appear on the photographic paper, something dark awakens, setting into motion a terrifying chain of events that threatens to shatter the sanity of Jack Hunger and his friend, Sheriff Wayne Olsen.

Together, the two men are plunged into an intense race against time, forced to push their own fears and all logic aside. They must stop the darkness in its tracks before it escapes into the shadowy streets of an unsuspecting world.

    Story
    "Patient Zero on a new level."

    Okay, so I have delved into the world created by Eric A. Shelman for the first time and now will be trekking deeper.

    This little tale is a fun twist on the "zombie" genre. It gives you an actual genesis and patient zero. ES is not afraid to shock the reader, so go into this wearing a cup because he kicks low and will have you cursing him for daring to do so (in a good way).

    No spoilers, but this will make you leery of classic cameras. In a short time, there are decently developed characters and a story line that pulls you along begging for you to finish this in one sitting.

    My only criticism is that there did seem to be a chapter that repeated itself back to back early on. AT first I was thinking there would be some different take on an earlier scene, but then I realized that it was the same chapter piggy-backed. Story-wise...no complaints. A wonderful ride.

    Story
    "A funny, sick twist on walking dead horror"

    Where do I start with this review? I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but you need to know what you're getting yourself into.

    1) This is a book about a haunted/possessed camera, walking corpses, and a couple of guys trying to save the world from evil.
    2) It is extremely bloody and contains particularly descriptive scenes involving human cannibalism. Some parts I just had to fast-forward through because they were making me sick...and I'm not really that squeamish about such things.
    3) This book goes against the unspoken rules of horror. Both pets and children die in this book, so if that's upsetting to you, don't read it.
    4) The author did a fantastic job of narrating. He brought his characters to life through voice, which is not always the case with audio books.
    5) If you can get past the blood and guts parts of it, it's a great listen. The action moves very quickly and you find yourself sucked into the story right along with our heroes. You will laugh, you might want to cry, you will definitely be disgusted at some point, but you will enjoy the ride.

    I received this book at no cost via AudioBookBoom in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Not just a camera...."
    What did you love best about The Camera: Bloodthirst?

    Where to begin...you just think it is a camera, a normal camera...oh no, it is not that. That camera has powers and those powers are scary.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This was a creepy story that grabs you at the start and does not let go until the very end. Awesome story to listen to, makes me not want to take any pictures for awhile. Great story!


    What about Eric A. Shelman’s performance did you like?

    He did a great job of narrating the story. He keep me from wanting to turn the story off to work or do other things. Plus the fact this was his book, made it so much better. He knew just how to read each scene to keep you listening.


    If you could take any character from The Camera: Bloodthirst out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Would love to sit and talk to Jack to find out more about him and his stories, you know he must have many more stories...

    Any additional comments?

    I was expecting more from the story especially since Scabs was so good. This story felt a little flat. I liked the beginning and the last third of the book. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

    Story
    "Lights, Camera, Action!"

    I got this for free, but that does not mean i am automatically nice. Because this is a honest review!

    So i did not like this books start, but then it does something magic: It gets from a bit boring story about a mass murderer to what it is meant to be: A story about a haunted camera! So suddenly the beginning makes sense and i get happy! I find it a bonus that its narrated and written by Eric A. Shelman. His voice fits the book really well. I hope to hear more from Eric A. Shelman soon.

    **Possible Spoiler**

    First, the action started right away, so I was hooked right away! This wasn't a typical zombie story, which was great. It was gory but also surprisingly light-hearted and funny.

    The only thing that was a little weird to me was the prologue. Some of it seemed like it was unrelated to the main story. I usually hate prologues, but actually really liked this one & would have liked a whole book just about the people in it.

    The author narrates the story, which I always love because it's delivered in the tone that the author intends.

    "GREAT HORROR"

    I loved this book. I actually loved the cops in this one. It is truly a horror book that keeps your interest and creepy you do not want to stop listening too. Eric did great job not only being the author but also the narrator (not all authors can narrate) which he did great with the different characters. Onto another one of his, definitely recommend this one. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom. THANK YOU!
