Publisher's Summary

Two titans of modern horror - Brian Keene and Bryan Smith - team up for the terrifying crossover sequel to both Keene's Urban Gothic and Smith's The Freakshow.

The Westgate Galleria Mall was once a sprawling, shining monument to American consumerism and suburban growth. Now, it is a crumbling reminder of how both have fallen - an architectural ghost, haunting the outskirts of society. That makes it the perfect filming location for a YouTube channel devoted to the exploration of abandoned places. But the mall isn't as empty as it seems, and the residents have sinister obscene plans for them. Now, with the daylight still hours away, both the hunters and the hunted will fight to stay alive...and desperately try to make it home.

Home is where is the severed heart is...

Not quite gothic

While I wouldn't call this book a good fit for the actual Gothic literary genre, it does have plenty to satisfy fans of gratuitous gore, violence, sadistic torture and sex. If you enjoy a romp through a depraved world where the monsters are in control of the humans who fall into their traps, and die horrible prolonged deaths, this book is for you.

Dean Gallagher as narrator does a great job defining the different character voices, monsters and humans. Each is distinct in the story and really paints the picture of what's going on in the scene. His style flows smoothly and his matter of fact tone is a great counterpoint to the sometimes graphic narrative. It's good to hear a narrator have some fun with the text, and Dean Gallagher brings the story to life.

Wish it was longer

when brian keene and bryan smith get paired together to write a story you're gonna have a hardtime trying to block out the horrors they put down in this book cause the violence here are sick and demented and brutal.
