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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a page turner read, fast and "OMG! How's it going to end?!" I labeled this "gratuitous horror" because there's a LOT of brutal fighting, a lot of knives and slashing, and lots of blood. I liken it to those slasher movies where the blood flows freely, and anyone who gets in the way better beware. (I admit to watching a lot of those movies.) Mercy is such a foolish girl/woman...she has Cosmo dreams of meeting Mr. Right, or meeting any guy at all. She is a repressed woman whose thought processes are those of a dreamy junior high girl. I found myself quite irritated by her, and as Victor stalks her, I was actually hoping she would end up murdered! By the end of the book, I had a little more respect for her in that she actually turned out to be a fighter; Victor and Mercy's struggle takes up the last half of the book, and that's where the read becomes fast and compulsive. (and very bloody). There's some unexpected twists and turns, which raises a somewhat prosaic story (villain with mother issues obsesses over victim he wants to rape and murder for some delusional reason) a little higher. I don't know if it's intentional, but Victor has a pain fetish, receiving it and controlling it; ironically, his last name is "Dolor", which is "pain" in spanish. Love it !!

I read this book in one sitting. It was pretty fast paced, and kept me interested. I've read horror books with much gorier passages, so this one wasn't all that bad in my opinion.

This story is about a young girl almost straight out of college, kind of naive, dealing with a psychologically challenged madman, his attack, and trying to escape. The author throws in quite a few twists that kept the story very interesting to me. Yeah, I had a few "Oh, no he didn't!" moments.

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.

I enjoyed the story and didn't notice a lot of misspellings or incorrectly english usage so that in itself is a 5 star in this day and age. It kept my attention for the whole story, also a good factor that I look for.
