Book Description

A tale of modern-day horror from award-winning novelist Vincent H. O'Neil:

In Providence, Rhode Island, graduate student Angie Morse has discovered evidence that an ancient stone obelisk worshiped by a colonial-era cult is still in existence. Hoping to finish her studies with a career-boosting headline, she's combing the woods to find it.

As she digs into the history of the obelisk and the cult that perished at its feet, she's plagued by bizarre events and shadowy figures from her college days. The more time she spends in the ghostly forests outside the city, the more Angie starts to suspect the obelisk is exerting the same influence on her that doomed so many others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take a tour through Lovecraft's backyard! June 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I started reading Interlands while vacationing in the Bahamas. It was on a very hot humid and sunny day and I found myself missing home (Northern RI). A home that I knew was at that moment in fact having a rainy cold afternoon. What got me so homesick was Mr. O'Neil's superb description of the atmosphere and surroundings of the protagonist as she continued her journey into darkness. Having been to many of the backwoods in Rhode Island and Massachusetts I couldn't help but get a chill down my spine thinking, "I've been there before.". Halfway through I put the book down and waited until I returned home to finish. I was not disappointed. The rhythm of the book is at a perfect pace. I never wanted to stop reading it. I will not stop giving Vincent credit for this piece of work. I feel if I ever move away from New England I would take my Lovecraft and a dose of O'Neil to bring back haunting memories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read! June 4, 2013
By Mallory
Format:Kindle Edition
Brilliant horror story! Perfectly paced and gripping, with a believable and well-developed main character, Interlands is hard to put down. This novel is rich with lurking dread and Providence legends. For fans of horror, Lovecraft or New England history, this is a must read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and games in Providence June 17, 2013
By Vulpine
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun Lovecraftian read, but without the namedropping a lot of stories has. If you didn't know anything about the Old Gent from Providence, you'd enjoy this as a straight horror story. Fans of HPL will see references to his work, as well as Robert E. Howard. And the kindle price is a bargain for the story quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interlands is Interesting! June 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Angie Morse has a problem, she just can't seem to finish her Master's thesis. And that's not her only problem.... Vincent O'Neil is a talented writer. Already a successful write of mystery novels (The Frank Cole Series) and several other novels (Death Troupe and Glory Main) he is successful once again in a completely new genre. The story is set in the woods of Rhode Island and the town of Providence (with a brief detour to Boston). Rapid , fast pace and easy to read this is a page tuner, either paper or electronic. It is an easy mix between history, horror, thriller and just plan fun reading. O'Neil's grasp of the local area, knowledge of New England history, and ability to weave a story is unmatched. His writing is tight, crisp and flows from the pages....like black dark water.....(read the book) 5 stars only because there aren't six.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, engaging mystery October 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story of how I came to read Interlands is sort of interesting in of itself. I was in Providence for NecronomiCon when I met Vincent O'Neil. When he told me had written a Lovecraftian horror-novel set in Providence, I was sold. And I'm glad I was. Interlands is a wonderful read brimming with mystery and suspense.

Two strengths separate Interlands from other reads. The first is Angie. She's a wonderful, believable, sympathetic hero. We are immediately on her side. We want to see her succeed. We are worried about her when she's in danger, and we are rooting for her to come out the other side OK. It goes without saying that a book without a strong lead cannot survive, but Angie helps take Interlands to another level entirely.

The other strength is the plot itself. It's been said that the best horror begins with an imminently believable and perhaps even mundane premise. Angie is hunting for the obelisk not because of its mystical connotations, but because she needs to find it to complete her master's thesis. The story starts off slow, building suspense and tension and slowly drawing us in. I don't have a fireplace, but I imagine lying on the couch in front of one would be the best place to enjoy Interlands. It's one of those books that should be savored, rather than devoured.

All in all, I really found myself enjoying this book. I'd recommend it not only to Lovecraftians out there looking for what is essentially a love letter to Providence, but also to anyone who enjoys a good mystery and a lead character you can care about.

3.0 out of 5 stars Intrigue and Supernatural Mixed Together August 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Vincent O'Neil is a versatile writer who has penned a mystery with a supernatural twist. For those who lie the occult, it is a crackling mystery. For those who have come to know the Frank Cole series by Vincent O'Neil, this is a departure that is handled very well. It is not a book to be taken in short doses but rather spend an hour or so each time you read "Interlands" because you begin to feel the mood building in the protagonist.

it is worthwhile to consider reading this book.

'Interlands' by Vincent H. O'Neil is a tale that draws on the history of Lovecrafts city of Providence, RI. It is not however some bad version of a Lovecraft story. It stands on its own with the characters and plot that is original. It is a solid read that has some elements that Lovecraft fans will enjoy, but even those who are not familiar with his work will still find this book a good read.

The story is in itself complete, but with all the events and characters it leaves room for a sequel. Hopefully, Mr. O'Neil will find the desire and time to do so.

Very good read. I enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovecraftian without Lovecraft March 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lovecraft...Cthulhu...Mythos...all terms that never appear in this extremely well written and suspenseful tale set in modern Providence and the surrounding area. And there are no primal deities given jaw-breaking names or forbidden tomes that will cause raised eyebrows from librarians should you present a call-card. And, yet, for all that, the touch of Lovecraft is strong in plot, theme and locale. Anyone well versed in things Lovecraftian will see that hand, recognize the themes and events, appreciate the thoughtful and in-depth presentation of the setting, even to the mentioning of the "hollow hills" of that ancient town; readers lacking that background, however, are not left out in the cold, for their can surely appreciate the story on its own merits and might even appreciate it that there are no obscure and off-putting references of the type used (overused?) by the heirs of Lovecraft.

The story concerns a young girl's search for an ancient obelisk and lost colonial settlement in the wild forest regions outside Providence. The sense of being alone (maybe) in the deep forests is as unnerving to the reader as it is to the graduate student, and her feeling of mounting dread, even when in the city, is infectious. Throughout the book, the author maintains an unrelenting strain of suspense. The in-depth exploration of her hopes and fears help to set the stage for the arcane events which begin to assail her as she continues her search for the mysterious monolith, a search in which she is not alone, and she eventually learns that the actions of all the searchers are being keenly watched by forces that stay far from the haunts of man, forces that are as ancient as they are deadly.
