Publisher's Summary

A group of boys go out into the cereal field to play an innocent game of flashlight tag. But something is lurking in the field with them, and it's ready to tear the boys apart.

Keep an eye on this author!

A good short story by a new to me author. A night of fun turns into chaos for a group of boys playing flashlight tag. This story is scary and gory (that's ok! ;) I liked the relationship between all of them. It read like a real group of boys. Then the horror shows up. I thought the scariest part is when one of the boys looks up. I received the audio book in exchange for a honest review. The audio version is read by Justin Mills. He did so good!! Bravo Justin! I would read more by this author! He's one to keep an eye on!

4.5 rounded up to 5

This is a short story that packs a big punch. Firstly, I want to notate how the audio is very professional. When the young boys spoke on walkie talkies,the voice sounded like it was being transmitted across a radio. When an echo was called for, the audio echoed. Plus I loved the music before and after.
Now onto the story. Its a short creature feature that touches on brotherly love ( even though it was adopted brotherly love).The author impressed me with well placed and appropriate adjectives but didn't overdo it. Also, the metaphors were a nice touch.
I want to thank the author for a free Audible code

A Nice Short Gory Story

I am no stranger to Nick's work, I have my favorites of his stories. I believe his best stories are yet to come. this one was very fun, not too long, and I recommend it to anyone who loves graphic horror. the scenes that had a lot of graphic action were fantastic to read. I know Nick loves his coming-of-age horror stories, and this one reflects it. you follow a group of kids who like to get into trouble in a field at night. one night a game of hiding and seek using some walkie-talkies gets out of hand. there are not just the boys in this field one cold night. if you're looking for a good short piece of fiction to read check this one out. I am excited to read Future Extreme horror stories from Nick.

Heartfelt, thrilling, and horrifying all at once.

Field of Fiends brings me right back to my childhood summer nights of kick the can and hide & seek. This story took my adolescent horror riddled imaginings to a whole new level! Hiding in the dark anxiously anticipating to be discovered by the enemy. The narrator, Justin Mills, is outstanding! He kept me on the edge of my seat and brought this story to life in a way I never could have done on my own. One of my favorite parts was the walkie talkie, “over and out.” The sound effects were amazing! Thanks for the thrill!

fields of NOPE not going in there

So today's review was a new experience for me. I've never really reviewed an Audiobook before, so this was an exciting opportunity for me. No dear friends, I didn't have a Cadbury muffin this time, as the buggers were out of stock. Still, I powered on and listened as Justin Mills set the mood. We are introduced to two brothers, Mikey and Ryan. You get the instant rapport between the two characters as the story goes into the background of their past and present. Bentan fields is a spooky crop field I have no desire to visit if it exists. The atmosphere is instant, and the start-up music was very Nightmare on Elm Street esk.

The story centres around Ryan taking Mikey to meet his friends at a mysterious field in their hometown to play a late-night game of tag that goes wrong. The friends are braver than I am, though to be honest, Matt's mom's ass gets a lot of stick. Poor Matt's mom. I love that Corey, Steve and Matt are all so accepting of Ryan's little brother Mikey and the age gap doesn't seem to bother any of them. The fact that Mikey dreams about something coming already sets the mood that you are not going to like what's going to happen. Plus, I had already grown pretty attached to Mikey at this point. The description of the creatures was intense and detailed, and I could visualise them practically standing in front of me. Though, in all honesty, I give Ryan credit for sticking around so long to take in the details. I'd be like Nope and sprinting for the nearest exit out of there. Corey was probably one of my favourites character-wise. His humour and demeanour made him instantly like him. Plus, he was the only kid wise enough to bring protection, even if it was to show off. Mr Stabby was sharp thinking (I warned you about my puns), mainly because I kept thinking of Mr Pointy on my shelf.

Also, Nick didn't skimp on detail when it came to the gory stuff, so if you like raw death scenes, you'll love listening to this. Flashlight tag does sound a lot of fun, but I wonder how it would fare in a haunted house scenario. That being said, I do feel like I wanted more detail in regards to the beast's origins; why were they there? Why this town in Michigan? Did they fancy checking out the five great lakes? I got to know! I also would like to hear about the aftermath and if the creatures returned at any point. So I would love to listen to a follow up on where the story went from there.
More sound effects would have been a nice touch because the walkie talkie effect added depth. Maybe hearing more natural sound effects like the wind going through the field as they hid or the hulking footsteps coming closer.

Nick is a talented writer, and with all the obstacles he faced in his life I, can't help but admire him. I won't give too much away as I don't want to spoil the ending for you, but the story is one of suspense and horror as I held my breath with Ryan multiple times. You can tell Justin was having fun with the story, changing his voice and attitude numerous times to match the scene. He also did a pretty impressive monster roar, which would make metal singers jealous. I have also added the term ‘Holy sweet sauce’ to my vocabulary as that made me chuckle, and I believe my niece will love that expression. So critters, if you want something that has kids trying to survive, hulking fantastic beasties in it. Remember, guys, if you see something inhuman in front of you, leg it.
