Review

'Outstanding psychological thriller! This author will chew you up and spit you out! Disturbing, dark, graphic and just AWESOME!' KINDLE BOOK REVIEW

From the Author

Welcome to the mind of a psychopath. My debut novel challenges you to work out which characters are the same person, and just when you think you know, will throw in a wicked twist. It will captivate, reward and stay with you.

More About the Author

*** TIMER: The Complete 1st Season + THE MORTAL RELIGION ARE BOTH FREE! ***

Marc was brought up in Dartford, England. Nothing much happened there - landing a job as a banana packer was the highlight - so he spent most of his time lost in his imagination.

Seeking change, he became an airborne soldier (not airborne germ, as a friend once called him) and had to parachute out of the first plane he ever went in. The boring days were over.

He's drawn to stories of hardship and survival. Carlin announcing he's 'The Daddy' in Scum; Brendan fighting for his family in Warrior; David searching for answers in Vanilla Sky.

Marc doesn't hold back when he writes. Much of his work contains black humour. Some might call it a sick sense of humour, but whatever it is you had to have it in the army - you laughed or you cried.

He's into writing psychological thrillers that offer the reader something fresh. He likes to depict thought-provoking, controversial situations and in some cases to make people more aware of uncomfortable but important topics.

Marc has written three novels. THE MORTAL RELIGION (FREE) has been awarded Rabid Reader's Best Books of 2013; E-thriller's Thriller of the Month in April 2013, and is also listed on 42 Books to Love for Towel Day. PERSONA is a Kindle number 1 bestselling psychological thriller. CUFFED, his most ambitious project, is listed on Rabid Reader's Best Books of 2014. Take a look at its trailer on this page.
He's just released TIMER, a series of sci-fi novellas, described by the BBC as as a 'High-concept and compelling sci-fi series, reminiscent of past hits such as "Logan's Run".' The entire 1st Season is FREE.

He loves sixties music and studying lyrics, meditation, skiing, off-road cycling, repairing bikes, martial arts and chess.

"Persona" is the kind of story that you won't see very often. I just finished reading it and I have to say that it sent shivers down my back the whole time I was reading it. What really makes this story different is that it is character driven. Ryan, who is having an identity crisis, develops different identities or personas to accomplish is disturbing and questionable goals. I really found this to be an enjoyable read because the different character interactions contributed to make the story engaging and interesting.

Also, the sex scenes and offensive language caught me off guard, but they did set the tone for the relationship between certain characters and the rest of the book. The book is also filled with subtle dark humor and action scenes that are written surprisingly well.

Overall, Persona is a novel about the disturbing aspects of a person slowly losing their mind. I found It to be quite entertaining. Worthy of 5 stars in my opinion.

What an exciting book! I am drawn to Marc Horn's novels because they display a superior plotline than most thrillers out there. Persona is no exception. Ryan is a character that is relatable in the sense that he is open to trying out new things. And the different personas that emerge from him are interesting while some others are terrifying! There is a good amount of graphic sexual activity that is not for the faint of heart. Just as his previous novel The Mortal Religion, he delivers a very powerful psychological thriller that brings excitement in every page.

First, if extremely graphic violence and sex trouble you, DO NOT read this book!
Okay, I'll admit this story confused me the whole way through. I found it difficult to keep track of who was who. Normally, that would put me off completely, except that the story was so damn riveting! I find it rather creepy that Mr. Horn seems to be so knowledgeable of the psychotic mind...
Other than having to consult my UK dictionary often, I found this to be a good read. I can't really say much about the characters without giving stuff away, except to say that they were very well-written. The action, unorthodox as it was, was literally non-stop. The ending sent chills down my spine! I'll definitely be checking out more of Marc Horn's work.

Marc Horn brings us a dramatic and twisted psychological thriller that is impossible to put down once you pick it up. Persona drops you right into insanity from the very beginning, and then drags you through the workings of a broken mind as it attempts to achieve its warped goals. From the merely unbalanced to the psychopathic, the many faces of Ryan aren't for the faint of heart or those sensitive to crude language. Fortunately I’m neither of those, and I had my nose buried in the Kindle all the way to the bitter end. It actually took me a little bit to understand what I was reading, which hooked me that much harder. This is extremely graphic with very dark subject matter, written with a deft hand that seems disturbingly familiar with the many aspects of madness. Excellent writing, very complex and well thought out characters, and a hard hooking plot!

Edge of my seat while reading certain parts. Great description so that I could almost visually see the characters and feel the feelings of each one.

I thought the book was great. I was confused a little in the middle but when it all played out it was great. I wish there was a little more to the ending, like what happened to his girlfriend or his best friend Dave. Good book
