The Lambert Family is heading to Crescent Lake, a rural cabin community in Western Pennsylvania, for an idyllic weekend getaway. Some fishing, some barbecue, some games... The Fannelli brothers are heading to Crescent Lake, too. Some stalking, some kidnapping, some murder, definitely some games...though not necessarily the type of games the Lamberts had in mind. But it doesn't matter. The Lamberts are going to play whether they like it or not.

This series was awesome. I was hooked immediately. And the whole series in one book was even better.

This is a thriller to the max.

Since the 1970s, FantasticLand has been the theme park where "Fun is Guaranteed!" But when a hurricane ravages the Florida coast and isolates the park, the employees find it anything but fun. Five weeks later, the authorities who rescue the survivors encounter a scene of horror. Photos soon emerge online of heads on spikes outside of rides and viscera and human bones littering the gift shops, breaking records for hits, views, likes, clicks, and shares.

First I want to say that I do know believe things would have gotten so crazy so fast which makes this book unbelievable.

With that said WOW what a horrifying story. These are not kids but young adult and teenagers. They get trapped in am amusement park with no help or supervision. People die because of panic at first but then they die because primal behavior.

After reading (or while reading) you made wonder what faction would you be part of or what would you do but,I guess that is the point. No one really knows how they will act and react until they are in it.

It is definitely worth the read/listen. Just remember that this is a dark book with a dark end.

The finale of the Zombie Road tale. It's been a month since the outbreak, and the survivors of the zombie apocalypse have started a new life in a walled city. There are still a few enemies that need to be dealt with, the kind that can think and plan, and they can be more devastating than a horde of the undead.

At first I wasn't sure if I would like the book 1 because I wasn't sure about the narrator. But I pushed through and I am sure glad I did. I loved the characters and mostly knew which one was talking.

I know some people cried racism because who was the real enemy in this series but come on. It really plays to the time we are in now. Everyone should stop being so PC and just enjoy the books.

I was excited to hear that the story will go on and will definitely get the new book as soon as it comes out.

I will finish by saying that if there was a Zombie Apocalypse this is a plausible way it could happen. I found some good tips just in case 😉

After a long day of prepping a house for painting, all Gus Berry wanted was the night off to spend some time with his girlfriend and relax before having to return to work the next morning. But that isn’t going to happen. Because Gus’s co-worker Benny has found a one-night job at the local Mollymart East, a job that has to be done by morning. If Gus and his paint crew can complete the work by then, it could mean huge business with a respected, established grocery store chain.

When best-selling horror author Sam McGarver is invited to spend Halloween night in one of the country's most infamous haunted houses, he reluctantly agrees. At least he won't be alone; joining him are three other masters of the macabre, writers who have helped shape modern horror. But what begins as a simple publicity stunt will become a fight for survival. The entity they have awakened will follow them, torment them, threatening to make them a part of the bloody legacy of Kill Creek.

This definitely has a feel like Burnt Offerings and Amityville but with a twist.

Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from.Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, Malorie has long dreamed of fleeing to a place where her family might be safe. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: 20 miles downriver in a rowboat blindfolded with nothing to rely on but Malorie's wits and the children's trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them....

I must say that I am tossed if I lived this book or if I was just in a France the whole time.

The story revolves around Mallory and a new world where you cannot open your eyes or you may go mad. In turn you are listening to thus book as if you are blind as well.

The narrator I thought would bore me but as you listen to the storyline you sort of understand the sadness in her voice.

This book will definitely make you think about how you would do in her world. I say give tbis book a try and see if you agree.

I rarely think a sequel is better than the first book in a series but this sequel was AWESOME!

You a little of the old and alot of the new. More Hell Divers, more monsters, and maybe a future for the hive...just maybe.

If you loved Hell Divers 1 you will LOVE Hell Divers 2. I can't wait for book three.

This will make a great movie trilogy!!!!!!
