Book Description

Picking up right where Deep in the Darkness left off, Dr. Michael Cayle returns from near death to rescue his wife and daughter, who have been taken captive by the Isolates, the aboriginal creatures living in the woods behind his home. Will he find them alive, or dead? Or…worse?

“Dead Souls is creepy, atmospheric, and explosive -- keep a light on and a gun loaded when you crack this baby. Another outstanding thriller from Michael Laimo." Douglas Preston, author of The Monster of Florence.

“Michael Laimo can stand proud next to Clive Barker and Stephen King” The Horror Review

“One of the best and most refreshing horror novels you’re likely to read…” Gary Braunbeck, on Deep in the Darkness

3.0 out of 5 stars Confused June 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I immediately pick up the 2nd book and while I enjoyed it, the ending was a bit of a let down. I didn't expect everyone to ride off into the sunset but with the lack of closure, it felt like the book just ended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Follow-Up to Deep In The Darkness December 21, 2012
By Mookie
Format:Kindle Edition
As with the first book, "Deep In The Darkness", a unique horror story unlike any other. Trapped in a small town in New Hampshire with seemingly no way out where it seems that everyone is in on the 'conspiracy'. If you like that, and being inside the (crumbling) mind of a man losing his mind, than this book is for you. I read these books back-to-back and it read like one long story that way. I do think that without reading the first book, you'll be missing some of the key aspects or back stories taking place in this book. The story ending was somewhat predictable but still with some twists. Possibly a third book????

5.0 out of 5 stars Laimo delivers... October 21, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I clearly recall even if it was years ago, picking up Michael's first book Atmosphere (totally a random pick) as I was browsing the book section at the local drugstore, little did I know that Laimo would start delivering great reads for years to come...

I was left on my appetite after reading Fires Rising... no more books to read...

Finally Return to Darkness came about...

I truly enjoyed the Return as it was fast paced from the first page and really got me back to where we had left off in the Deep in the Darkness and as if I had just finished reading it a few days earlier when actually it was years ago...

Cheers Michael and keep on writing and I'll continue reading!

Salut et Merci

Loved this book just as much as the first one,this was more screamish than the last,even had a few nightmares.had a hard time putting this book down,even while i was trying to sleep i kept thinking about it and had to get up to read more.

sorry for such a short review,bording a plane to Hawaii
