Editorial Reviews

Review

"Apocalypse Island is a major achievement. Hall's writing is excellent, riveting! The story morphs from the supernatural, to a crime story to science-fiction, to an espionage thriller exposing real historical facts of the dirty deeds committed by the CIA. How the good guys and the bad guys keep changing roles makes it even more fascinating. Most compelling is the depth of character portrayed in the tormented victim/hero Danny Wolf who is searching for his identity. I was fascinated by how Hall tackled so many subjects and tied them all together at the end . . . and then, unexpectedly, I fell in love with the 'Blue Light.'  It seemed to have human or super-human qualities and I did not want it destroyed . . . A must read!  I could not put this book down." --Kiana Davenport, internationally bestselling author of SHARK DIALOGUES, and THE SPY LOVER 

"Apocalypse Island is an ambitious thriller, written by the talented Mark Edward Hall . . . Part political thriller, part police procedural, part supernatural gothic horror and part action-adventure, all rolled into one fast-moving book . . . You simply cannot put it down." --New York Times Bestselling Author, Allan Leverone

"Hall has an uncanny knack for blending vivid, almost poetic prose with visceral images of jaw-dropping horror to great effect." --Bram Stoker Award Winning Editor, Vince Liaguno

"Poetic and eerily seductive, Hall pushes you to the edge, until you get lost in the beautiful madness of his creations." --Midwest Book Review

"Hall is rapidly climbing the ladder to stake a claim as one of the dark fiction elite." --Morpheus Tales

Strange things are happening to Danny Wolf. Imprisoned for a murder he claims he did not commit, Danny is tormented nightly by horrifying dreams; nightmares filled with death and destruction and chaos. Bizarre fugues torment him, during which time he becomes violent and uncontrollable, remembering nothing afterward.

Offered an opportunity for early release from prison subject to intensive psychological counseling, Danny eagerly accepts. But the minute he hits the streets of Portland, Maine, a series of ritualistic murders begin occurring. The common thread? Each of the victims is a young female; all have slept with Danny Wolf.

The nightmares intensify and Danny begins to doubt his own sanity. Perhaps he really is a homicidal madman. When young female detective Laura Higgins is assigned to the case, with instructions to get close to Danny in order to gather evidence, things begin to spiral out of control, leading to a shocking conclusion in a secret underground lab, far beneath a small island with a horrifying history off the rocky Maine coast.

APOCALYPSE ISLAND is an ambitious thriller, written by the talented Mark Edward Hall, an author I discovered about a year ago. It's a novel not easily pigeonholed: Part political thriller, part police procedural, part supernatural gothic horror and part action-adventure, all rolled into one fast-moving book. There are rogue CIA operatives, dirty cops, ghosts, corrupt church officials and double-crossing colleagues.

But at its heart, APOCALYPSE ISLAND is a tale of one man's desperate attempt to find his identity, when his history is a complete blank and his motives - and even his sanity - are called into question by all, including himself. The tension builds slowly but steadily, until by the end of this explosive book, you simply cannot put it down.

Simply put, APOCALYPSE ISLAND is a winner.

Danny Wolf was imprisoned for a crime he did not commit, but offered early parole if he agreed to psychological counseling. The nightmares he experienced in prison intensified upon his release, making him question his own sanity. When he becomes the main suspect in a string of ritualistic murders in the area he also begins to doubt his innocence. As he and the authorities try to unravel the mystery, they become embroiled in a huge government conspiracy, where no one is innocent.

Twists and turns abound in this supernatural thriller. It will definitely hold your interest and keep you turning pages to find out how the heck it's all going to resolve. Mr. Hall has done an excellent job developing the characters and setting scenes while building the tension. The story is well-crafted and the writing is crisp and very unique. Part thriller, part mystery, part horror, part supernatural, and totally riveting! Fabulous job, Mr. Hall.

Apocalypse Island is rather hard to define but, no matter, as it is very entertaining and excellently written. In addition, the book is well-edited and formatted which was a huge plus for me.

There are many characters involved - some good, some bad, some ugly - but my favorite was Eli. Couldn't help but love that little guy.

If you like thrillers with a supernatural twist, you should enjoy Apocalypse Island. Kudos to the author.

I've gotten emails that people have composed with their thumbs on their iPhones more that were better written than this disaster. After making it about 20% through, I gave up. Between the histrionic descriptions of goth girls with "blasphemous tattoos" that almost - but not quite! - dissuaded the main character from having sex with them, to dumb lists ("all the social networks: Facebook. Twitter. Google. Instagram. Friendster. Myspace.") to lots. Of. Little. Sentence. Fragments. That. Made. You. Wonder. If. The. Author. Has. A. Speech. Impediment.... it was just too painful to continue.

When I got this book, it was a free download. I'm not sure how long this will continue, but I'll say this...it's worth paying for.

Genre-wise, the book is hard to define. Thriller and Crime with horror and SF elements may be most accurate. Fair or not, I'm always a little suspicious about 4-5 star glowing reviews on a free download of an author I've never heard of before, but I'm glad I took the plunge.

From the first page, my attention was captured. The book is graphic, yet compelling and definitely has an edge to it. Danny Wolf is a character who just lives and breathes on the (virtual) page. Tortured as he is, he's utterly compelling.

The book did fall down just a touch for me in the end (hence the four rather than five stars). It was still a solid and satisfying ending, but there's a lot of info dump - one of those moments when the villain (or villains) uses the moment to hold forth about everything that happened and why it happened. The author's skillful storytelling falters just a bit. In addition, the flawless editing suffers a few hiccups starting in Chapter 122. I think the author and his editor (his wife) lost just a little steam coming into the home stretch.

That being said, the book packs a satisfying wallop. I've already recommended it to friends and family and can see myself re-reading it in the future!
