Book Description

Could you survive a haunted highway?

Blood Alley is the deadliest road in America, a narrow two-lane blacktop that cuts like a scar across the California desert.

Hundreds have died on Blood Alley in horrific accidents. Some call it a death trap. Others say it’s haunted. Only the locals know the truth...

Blood Alley belongs to the Highwayman, a vengeful phantom who drives his ghost car at night to claim the souls of all who cross him.

A group of teenagers on their way to a funeral get delayed by engine trouble and ignore the warnings: Never drive Blood Alley at night.

Four teenagers hit the road at sunset.

Will any survive to see the dawn?

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not wait to turn the page July 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book captured me from the prologue. It is the true definition of a horror novel. One of the things I really enjoyed was it was not "wordy". The book has enough description of the people, places and events to make it a great read but still allows you to use your own imagination. This plot line may not be new, but it is done very well, set in the now with believable characters. Not only will I be anxiously waiting the next book - but I would also like to see it hit the big screen. Hurry up Mr. Wisehart I Want More!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can I breathe now? June 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
gasp, gasp, gimme a sec, let me catch my breath, whew, now that I can speak (or should I say type) I can tell you how I feel about this book in just three words: "WHAT . A . THRILLER"!!! I read a lot and I mean A LOT. I'm 72 years old and read most of the time, have all my life and I can honestly say that I have never, never read a more thrilling thriller than David Wisehart's "Blood Alley". What an awesome writer, his conversations seem natural and believable. His book starts with the origin of the myth(? haha). Then into the here and now. Well and smoothly written with a wonderful build up: flowing, flooding, gushing, TSUNAMI. If you like thrillers you will LOVE Blood Alley. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to reading magic. Good job, David Wisehart. Oh, did I say, I loved the book? Just in case, I forgot: I loved the book!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Action packed! July 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Blood Alley started out as a story which I was not sure how I would like. But it soon picked up onto a fast paced frantic adventure along Blood Alley, a stretch of highway from hell guarded by a phantom man called The Highwayman. Claire and her friends , on their way to a family funeral, encounter a stretch of highway on which weird, ghostly things happen. We find out Claire is also searching for her real family by the name of Fowler, as she was adopted as a child. During the course of their trip in the Hummer, they come across many interventions by this Highwayman, and one by one are attacked viciously. There are some violent descriptions in this book.

As the story progresses, we find out who the Fowler family she belongs to is, and why the highway is called Blood Alley. Without giving too much away, the book kept me on the edge of my seat , and I honestly can say I read this in one day! It just got better and better.

The ending is pretty open to the possibility of future books in this series. I truly enjoyed this read, even for the gruesome parts.

This was won by me, as an ebook, in exchange for a fair and unbiased review of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Whew! July 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I don't usually read horror stories because I'm a chicken. And I don't usually read the first in a series because I'm terribly impatient with having to wait for the next book, particularly if I really enjoyed the initial book.
Well, I'm glad that I decided to read Blood Alley. It is a definite page-turner. Blood Alley is the first in the The Highwayman series by David Wisehart. The Highwayman is an evil entity who claims the lives of motorists who venture on "his" highway where there is blood on the moon.
There were times when I was actually holding my breath and leaning on the edge of my chair during the action scenes. The action sequences were great. I was literally telling myself to relax a few times.
I would definitely recommend reading this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, well-paced horror story July 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was eager to read Blood Alley when I heard the concept- ghostly revenge on a long, stretch of road. When I read the first page, I knew this would be a fun read, and it is.

The pace moves quick and easy, relying on action to propel it forward rather than description (which is what you want when you are immersed in a story involving speed and fear). I enjoyed how Wisehart really captured the scene on the road whenever the Highwayman encountered his next victim. One can really imagine seeing the chase in person. There are gruesome details related to the crashes and deaths, but they aren't exposed just to shock the reader. They seem a natural progression of the text: here's the crash, here's the aftermath. Overall, the text is clean- which is great for this particular genre.

The main characters are young adults and keep to that with how they think and interact with each other. I do wish there was more interaction/communication/emotion between the YAs, but with there being so much action, it didn't leave room for much else.

My one bone of contention with the story is I don't feel like it delivered the backstory as well as it could have. You have this Highwayman, a spirit who may or may not have been wronged in life and must return from the dead to unleash his anger. You also have this young girl who feels a connection the the Highwayman, but is not sure how. There are brief glimpses of who the two really are and how they are connected, little bits of the history that begin to unfold- but then it's jarringly cast aside during a brief encounter between the two towards the end. The end result seems too contrived, like Wisehart wanted a weird twist and chose that moment to shove it in. It left me a bit disappointed, but that's just me.
