Book Description

"DEPRAVED lives up to its name in the most brutal and visceral way. Sort of like a roller-coaster ride... but with battery acid and razor blades on the handlebars. Smith's most effective and merciless work to date!" --Ronald Kelly, author of FEAR, HELL HOLLOW

NAMED ONE OF BRIAN KEENE’S TOP 10 BOOKS OF THE YEAR FOR 2009.

Welcome to Hopkins Bend, the remote little Tennessee town where the backwoods inhabitants are cannibals and the local law operates a sex-trafficking ring. Unlucky travelers are frequently ensnared in the town’s sinister web. Some are held captive and tortured while others face even more gruesome fates. And beneath it all is the town’s darkest secret, the curse of the depraved and mutated Kincher clan.

BONUS CONTENT: This digital edition of Depraved includes a 7,700 word short story that reveals the grisly fate of two secondary characters from the novel. The story is as spectacularly gory as the novel itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Oh my god! That did not just happen!!!" December 17, 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Bryan Smith's latest novel, DEPRAVED, takes place in the backwoods town known as Hopkins Bend. Anyone passing through tends to not make it back out and most don't even survive. The town is full of inbred cannibalistic rednecks who tend to rape, torture, and/or eat their victims... not necessarily in that order. Those "lucky" enough to survive and not get killed are put to work in a special strip club that is also within the town of Hopkins Bend. And what is it with the Kincher family? They appear to not be quite human. It looks like they are half-man/half-monster. Have they been undergone some kind of mutation? Will any of the outsiders to Hopkins Bend be able to escape or find a way to stop the townsfolk or will these vicious acts continue to go on forever?

DEPRAVED is graphic, foul, smutty, trashy, and probably everything your mama told you never to read as a kid, but that's what makes it so great! Backwoods towns have always been depicted as creepy and if you add in rednecks, well... that just makes them even scarier! Just Kidding! Well, unless they're cannibalistic as Smith portrays them! That's the key. Smith adds in the twist of cannibalism and mutations to make these inbred rednecks be extremely scary, not to mention that they are so depraved. There is also one particular chapter in the book where Smith touches on the "bizarro". I won't spoil anything for you, but it's probably one of the most intense sex scenes I've ever read in a horror book. It's horrifically foul, but I loved every minute of it despite the voices in my head screaming "Oh my god! That did not just happen!!!". As far as I'm concerned, Smith has out done himself with DEPRAVED and I hope that he continues along this line of writing in the future. This is a must for fans of extreme horror. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Contains: Adult Language, Adult Situations, Violence, Torture, Gore, Rape, Graphic Sex, Cannibalism

5.0 out of 5 stars Backwoods Horror With A Twist October 25, 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Depraved is a perfect title for Bryan Smith's latest novel. It also could have been called Survivor. While there are plenty of depraved acts from the backwoods denizens of this book, it is the attempts to survive made by the victems of those denizens, that propel the plot. Everything takes place (I believe) within 24 hours, and those hours are packed with more violence, gore and depravity than you can shake a blood covered stick at. Smith also gives us a supernatural element that makes Depraved more than just a common cannibal redneck story. Demons, sex slaves, mutant freaks, flesh-eating backwoods clans and ordinary people doing ANYTHING to survive. What else can you ask for? How about one of the most over-the-top sex scenes ever put to paper?
Come on, you know you want to read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars gross, gross, gross July 6, 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was surprised by some of the low reviews for this book. If you like Gore, vicious, gross, depraved, sick stories than this is for you. If you like J. F. Gonzales, Wrath James White, Jack Ketchum-You'll like Bryan Smith. Great, fast moving story of people getting stuck in a small town and their struggle to escape. Sometimes you do not know which characters you should feel sorry for. Definitely worth the read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A gore-fest indeed!! July 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is my first Bryan Smith novel and I have to say...he did not fail to entertain when it came to the elements of horror, psychological horror and downright graphic violence. There were moments that I literally had to give my eyes and psyche a break from the vivid mental imagery, but that is what ultimately makes a good writer. The suspense was pulse pounding, and the ending, I compared somewhat to a more macabre and violent Tales from the Crypt, and I will leave that meaning a mystery as to not give anything away, but I will say that it was definitely not expected, nonetheless, wickedly well done.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good ole cannibal rednecks April 24, 2013
By Terry
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave this read three stars simply because it was well written. I enjoyed the different character perspectives. It didn't just leave you in one person's point of view. This reminded a lot of those back woods, redneck, mutant, cannibal movies like Wrong Turn. So if your into that type of thing. Give this a read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Appropriately named! July 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was definitely "depraved". I don't think there was a single "decent" character in this. I realize that extreme circumstances can make people do things they'd never be capable of otherwise, but .. I'm not sure that anyone normal would react the way these characters did. And I don't think anyone would be turned on by the things the so-called sane people got horny because of! If you are looking for a warm and fuzzy ending then you'd best find another book to read!

5.0 out of 5 stars wow July 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved loved loved this book!!!!! I have read a few Bryan Smith books and this was the first one I read and I was hooked from there. I loved that he added chapters about what happened to other characters at the end. I felt shocked by what came of some of their lives but at the end I didn't feel cheated by wondering what happened to them, he tied it all up in a nice little bow for me and I felt satisfied after reading it. The story itself was amazing. His writing made me feel like I was right there with them and I was rooting for certain characters to make it out alive and rooting that some of them didn't make it out! Thanks so much for entertaining me!!!!
