Book Description

A book about one woman's encounter with evil. Reminiscent of Dean Koontz's INTENSITY, this is a fast-paced tale that ventures into some very dark places.

Mercy Higgins is a recent college graduate who lives a fairly sheltered life. Following the death of her mother to cancer, her father brings her on a hike for a needed escape.

Victor Dolor has been secretly watching Mercy. Consumed with the certainty that the End of Everything is fast approaching and he must help “cleanse” the world for the coming Dark Time, Victor pursues Mercy for one purpose.

Up high on Blood Mountain, Victor brutally attacks her.

But that is only the beginning of the nightmare for Mercy. When her father is attacked as well, she is left alone to fight for herself.

And on Blood Mountain, the path to survival can get very gruesome.

This edition also includes the bonus short story, "Flies."

"It is rare for an author to write words that stick with me, long after the book is finished. Fortunately, I have discovered J. T. Warren, a writer whose words will haunt you even after the last page has been read. BLOOD MOUNTAIN is only one example of this author's work you do not want to miss. Once I started BLOOD MOUNTAIN, I couldn't put it down."
--Kat Yares, author of VENGEANCE IS MINE

“[J.T. Warren is] a welcome new entry into the world of supernatural fiction.”
--Scott Nicholson, author of THE RED CHURCH and LIQUID FEAR

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply great. November 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I was really surprised, and positively surprised at that, by this novel. I always regard unknown authors with suspicion, "hoping for the best but expecting the worst" (to quote a favorite song from my youth...).

One of its greatest strengths is that the novel is short. Each sentence serves to push the story forward, there are no distracting sideways, no boring chapters written only to fill a required page limit. This straightforwardness works especially well with the fast-paced, pulse-quickening race across the mountain and keeps you as out of breath as the story's characters. I think the author managed to put more content into this comparatively half-length book than most authors in their full-length novels.

Nevertheless, the characters are sufficiently well drawn with lots of background information. Mercy, our female victim slash heroine, comes across as very normal, doubting her own decisions and rethinking each action, visualizing different scenarios for consequences, unsure how to act. On the other hand, Victor's thoughts are expressed in a cold clipped no-nonsense way to an extreme, which perfectly matches his sick and perverse nature, where everything follows a plan and there is no place for redundant behavior or failure in any way.

There was only one small moment when I thought "been there read that, nothing new, so let the slaughter begin and get it over with". But almost immediately the story made a sharp turn in another direction and smacked my right in the face - "whoa, it's not at all over yet, smart-ass".

Although Blood Mountain provides a good portion of gore, sometimes attacking you right out of the blue, it is not just another off-the-shelf genre novel. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blood Mountain, blood curdling horror... May 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading the first two chapters on the author's blog I had to read the rest of this. I started reading the rest yesterday and finished the book a little over an hour ago. I'm a slow reader. Only the real page turners can make me read that fast. Blood Mountain is dark, gory, and spectacularly disturbing. The characterization is great and the prose is well crafted. J.T. Warren is definitely an author to keep an eye on. I will now have to check out his other books now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark horror May 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
NOT for the faint of heart. I read JT Warren's CALAMITY and thought it was dark, but this is a step beyond. Still, the violence appropriate to the story and it's well written--the Jack Ketchum comparison fits. Modern horror for the real world.

How can a girl who ran track and never gave up running because her coach told her not to be very tired after a simple hike up the woods? Stereotypical woman get raped fight back and wins kind of story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the read February 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This was my first J.T. Warren book and I enjoyed it. It was violent and bloody. The only qualm I do have is that nothing really good happened until 50% into the book, it was a slow starter but when it it picked up, it picked up good and fast.

I liked how we see the victim become the hero and fight back anyway she could to stay alive. The villain was, although not too original, creepy and twisted. Its worth the couple of bucks to read, especially if you are, like me, into extreme survival-horror stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! February 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From page one, I was hooked into this story. Blood Mountain is not for the squeamish because the blood and violence flow through the pages of this novel. Just when you think you know what is going to happen next, Warren throws yet another plot twist at you that will keep you guessing what is going to happen to poor Mercy until the very end.

Well written (and edited), Blood Mountain is from one of the new voices of horror. I cannot wait to read his other books, as his voice is unique and his tales just gruesome enough to be a wildly, rollicking read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice twists in plot July 23, 2011
By Mary
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has some interesting plot twists. The action starts off kind of slow but picks up rather quickly and you find yourself immersed in the story line. Worth the time and money to read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blood Mountain December 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was horrific for anyone who does not appreciate reading a detailed rape scene. It was disgusting. I put the book down at that point and was horrified to read that the author is a school teacher. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

More About the Author

"A welcome new entry into the world of supernatural fiction."--Scott Nicholson, author of The Red Church

Horror aficionado, lover of Halloween, ebook author of HUDSON HOUSE, CALAMITY, and BLOOD MOUNTAIN.

And now, the horror series, JEREMIAH RIVERS: DEMON HUNTER.

Follow his blog:

J.T. Warren was born on Halloween, a few months after his mother saw JAWS at the movies. His affinity for horror can be traced to an early age when he built a coffin out of cardboard and pretended to be a corpse, much to his parents' chagrin. He can still be found in a coffin on Halloween when he gets into the spirit of the season.

His works are crude and violent.

They are delightfully demented.

You've been warned.
