Editorial Reviews

Review

"The novel sustains a high level of intensity...but its audacious over-the-top approach is certainly imaginative and not likely to be forgotten.  A disconcerting central character is adeptly balanced by a strong young girl likely to win readers' hearts."  -Kirkus Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars Dying For an Untold Story? Welcome, You Have Arrived! October 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Written with a mature audience in mind, this story stretches your emotions at every corner. The author lets you look through the eyes of a child and then takes you down a twisted path into a den of evil that most of us cannot fathom. Kaley and Shannon were born in the Bluff, an unsavory part of Atlanta, and their mother is the drug ridden, neglectful Jovita who regularly leaves the girls to look after themselves. This platform leads the girls off the precipice of innocence and into a world of horror and, unexpectedly, into an unusual relationship with the twisted mind of psychopath Spencer Pelletier. Spencer Pelletier is wanted for breaking out of prison after his latest slaughtering of six people. As the police pursue Spencer, Spencer is tracking down Kaley and Shannon, who have been abducted by the "vory v zakone" - a Russian human trafficking ring, through telepathic abilities. However, the real story is in the details.

If you enjoy works akin to the Devine Comedy as well as movies like Hellraiser, then you will absolutely devour the landscape of horror created in the latter part of the book. Real Hell or not, the retribution being painted before you makes you believe that Hell could be just how the author composed it. Poor souls crying out for companionship, but never satiated. The physically torture of being pulled in to the walls by bodiless hands all while engulfed by never ending sorrow and fear that saturates every room of the hostage house as Spencer carries out what he came for. The monster that is created is an all consuming fire that seems to take on a life of its own. Or is it being controlled by some other force?

5.0 out of 5 stars Psycho Save Us December 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow.

I can't make myself write a synopsis of this book because it wouldn't do it any justice. Reading this book was like seeing a car accident and not being able to look away. It was sick and twisted and disturbing but I couldn't make myself stop reading it. I needed to know what the out come would be. And it almost feels wrong saying it was a good book because it was so messed up, but it was, it was one of the best books I have read this year. I felt for all the characters, was saddened by the fact that there are people like Spencer running around for real, and to know what Kaley and her sister Shan went through is something that really happens.

If there was any editing or grammar errors my brain didn't register them at all. I was so drawn in by what these poor girls where going through that I couldn't notice anything else.

The book was told from multiple points of view and they all flowed together seamlessly. You were never left floundering.

Would I recommend this book? Yes, as sad as this book is, it also puts into perspective the things you try to not notice that are all around us all the time.

Wow. What a page turner. One day later and I finally finished this book so I can get some stuff done around the house! I couldn't put this book down. It went from 0 to 100 and stayed there the whole ride!
I thought that the characters were very detailed and easy to follow.
I look forward to reading more from this author.

I haven't reviewed a book before but this one was different . I read a lot so this is unusual to find a voice that is so fresh . I found the characters interesting and well fleshed out. I often find it jarring when authors move between viewpoints but in this case it was well done. The psychopath was not softened to make him likeable which made the tone of the book interesting and more real. This was a great read. Couldn't put it down

5.0 out of 5 stars Hypnotic & harrowing December 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought that my experience with this novel would be to pick it up, read a chapter or two, and then maybe finish it over the holidays. Not hardly. The second I started reading it, I was absorbed. Laundry, bills, even Facebook, all fell to the wayside. I just wanted to see what was going to happen next. Parts of this book are violent; some,even repugnant- but not gratuitously so. The author reminds me a little of Stephen King in that, at times, they can take something already dark and present it in such a disconcerting way that leaves you feeling revolted and somewhat sullied. That said, the story and the chilling protagonist are thoroughly engrossing. Definitely a provocative read.It definitely won't be forgotten. I'm looking forward to more from this author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend it! December 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this book right from the start! I was taken in by the characters and found it was hard to put this book down!! It was a fast read because you wanted to see where the story was going to go. I had to stop reading it at night though, because I was so involved in the story, that I got a bit spooked by the end of the book! Look forward to reading more from this author! Will definitely recommend this book to my sons, they will love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Imagine if Tarantino and Clive Barker got together. December 3, 2012
By Paulito
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Huskins takes a nice "What If?" scenario which actually has you rooting for a very dark, dangerous character...and we're not talking "Batman" dark. Spencer is something else entirely.
Throw in premonitions and some genuinely nasty bad guys, you have a new take on the genre.
Wonderfully dark. As I state in the title,imagine if Tarantino and Clive Barker got together.They'd probably end up in this neck of the woods.

Very good book. If I could give it 4 1/2 stars, I would. It isn't a 5 star book, in my opinion, because of the large part the supernatural element plays at the end. Read more
