This book is certainly not for people who have a weak stomach but I loved it.
Dawn R
Hard to follow up TSID, but Ryan does a good job of making the story fresh while not overplaying the back-story of his previous ordeal.
Bill
The second half got nasty again, which I can stomach but it was hard, but it was the very ending.

I enjoyed "Born to Bleed" but it had nowhere near the devastating impact that The Summer I Died (The Roger Huntington Saga, Book 1) had on me.

"Born to Bleed" is well worth reading, don't get me wrong. Roger is back and he has to be the unluckiest guy in creation. After the terrible, gruesome things that happened in book one, he finds himself and others in another life-threatening no-holds-barred situation.

But while "The Summer I Died" felt all too real, this time around felt like a story. A good story but a story.

I understand there is to be a Book 3 in the Roger Huntington saga and I will read it. I just hope it is more like "The Summer I Died." Brutal, shocking, realistic but with humor and another protagonist for Roger to play opposite. Hope that makes sense.

"Born the Bleed", takes place 10 years after "The Summer I Died".

The main character Roger has since moved to California and now paints for a living.
Setting out to start his latest piece of art soon turns into yet another nightmare.
The girl he has a crush on and her fiance are kidnapped and Roger sets out to rescue them. Little does he know that things will soon spiral out of control and he will once again find himself in another violent and bloody situation.

"Born To Bleed" was a quick, yet exciting read. The violence has been toned down some from the first book but there are still some pretty messed up things going on.
I can't wait to see where Ryan takes Roger next. Here's to hoping we don't have to wait too long to find out!

Just wow, I would love a peek into Ryan Thomas's imagination.
I thought this might be a little like TSID and while it's terrifying and gory, it's its own story.
Its been 10 yrs since Roger's time in the Skinny Man's basement. He's moved to California where he sells paintings out of a gallery and crushes on Victoria, a gallery employee. When he suspects Victoria and her boyfriend Gabe have been kidnapped it takes him on a horrifying and sometimes it seems supernatural journey. With no help from the local cops and Tooth and Skinny Man talking in his head he does he damnest to find them.
How it played out was so unexpected. I don't think I would have imagined that ever. My only problem is the last chapter when he's speaking about Victoria, all I could think was why? What that man tells him makes total sense because I kept thinking he's got to be one of the luckiest people in a situation like this.
This is one of the greatest sequels I've read and I hope the next one holds up to the standards I'm setting for it. While this could possibly be read alone I really recommend reading first. Its helps to clarify some references made in this one.

When I first read the first book I was blown away. The novel could have easily been a single book and not turned into a series. I wondered how the first book could possibly be followed by a second. Does Roger run into serial killers and sadists just on a whim? I almost stopped reading because of this absurd concept. However, I actually grew to like Roger more in this book. His character was more developed and interesting. The ending clarified the concept and I can now see the series thing working.
Like others before me have noted, the first book was much better. This book is definitely worth reading because of the new Roger and his possibilities.

I've actually been done with this book for a few days, but was taking time to ponder it before writing this review. I did enjoy the first one, The Summer I Died, better than this one, but mostly because I found the pace in it to be much faster from the start. However this one certainly has its merits as well. Again, there is plenty of gore. And it ties in some strange happenings from the first book, giving a better understanding of it.

Would I recommend it? Yes! If you've read The Summer I Died, you should read it. If you haven't read that one yet, I would encourage you to begin there. And apparently there is yet another in the series to be published, for which I am certainly going to be watching.

Be aware that I was about 25% into the book before things really began rocking and rolling in this one, but as they start, it's like a snowball down a hill, going faster and faster until it finally crashes. I am anxious to obtain the next one in the series!

Such a great book, I enjoyed the summer I died a bit more because I felt closer to the characters relationships but none the less a wonderful read. I would suggest these books to any horror lover :)

10 years after his terrible ordeal in The Summer I Died, Roger Huntington finds himself in another nightmare predicament. Evidently, he is a psycho magnet. This time he is on the offensive as he tries to find and rescue his co-worker Victoria who has gotten herself kidnapped by some very sadistic cannibalistic whack jobs. Roger must fight not only the bad guys, but his inner demons and memories of the skinny man who nearly killed him years before. He will need to call upon all of his resolve to get thru this one and may just need some help from his dead best friend, Tooth.

Hard to follow up TSID, but Ryan does a good job of making the story fresh while not overplaying the back-story of his previous ordeal. Roger is a well developed character, flaws and all, and is drawn out in such a manner that you cannot help but root for him. Looking forward to the third installment. Set up to be very interesting and I am sure a wee brutal and bloody. 4.5 Ammy Stars.
