I first read Roger Smith's writing in Ishmael Toffee and knew I wanted to read more by this author.

I love horror - well written horror, that is, and I have discovered a new (to me) favorite - Roger Smith writing as Max Wilde.

Even though I love horror, I usually am not into demonic fiction. But "Vile Blood" is different enough in the way Wilde handles the story, that he captured my interest from page one and held it to the very end.

This is a rootin' tootin' gorefest so be warned if you happen to faint at the mention of blood - or guts (lots of guts) - or people being torn into smaller and smaller pieces. And then eaten. Be warned.

Skye is a great character, appearing in a cardboard box at the side of the road as an infant and manifesting at different times throughout the book as The Other. And there is her adopted brother Gene, a Chief Deputy Sheriff trying to protect his county and his family. And I love Gene's son, Timmy and his Creepshow episodes.

There are dastardly really bad guys in this book. There are people that are bad that you end up rooting for. There are good people. I really hope there is a sequel to this novel so we can find out more about the lives of the Martindales.

I read a lot so when I got my hands on my first Roger Smith book I was really excited to find such an amazing author. Then I read Ishmael Toffee, a novella, and could easily say Roger Smith was in my top ten. His newest novel VILE BLOOD is a horror, written under the name Max Wilde, and he just leap-frogged his way into my top five favorite authors.

I love horror, the really good juicy kind. Jack Ketchum, Brian Keene, Richard Laymon. They are the kings of horror in my mind and I just added Max Wilde to that list.

VILE BLOOD is not for the squeamish. There's blood, gore and violence. Things that will make you cringe. But if you enjoy biting your nails to the quick while you read, this is the book for you.

Skye Martindale is shy and withdrawn but she has a secret. When she's attacked by a group of men her secret is awakened. She loses everything she cares about, but it's out of her control. Or is it?

I loved her character and was cheering for her the whole way, but the real star of this book was in the villain. Junior Cotton. I won't say much about him, I don't think I could do him justice. You need to check out this book and find out for yourself.

This is a must read for horror lovers. I hope Wilde doesn't stop with just this one. I actually may go back and read Vile Blood again. It's that good!!

"The truth is I'm leaning in the direction of believing that God is dead but the Devil is very much alive." - Father Pedro

The idea that God is dead and the Devil is running wild is one that the characters in Vile Blood have every reason to embrace. Deputy Sheriff Gene Martindale and his sister, Skye, lost their parents to unspeakable violence when Skye was still a toddler and Gene hardly into his teens. More recently, Gene's wife and their unborn child were killed in a most gruesome manner by two members of a cult, leaving Gene, his young son, and a now seventeen-year-old Skye to cling together as a family unit. But as horrific as their past is, their future holds far worse. When four men passing through the town decide to give Skye a hard time - or worse - one night as she's walking home from her job at the town's diner something in her snaps. Something monstrous, powerful, and evil. Something Skye always knew on some level was there, but which she'd fought desperately to keep contained. Something she calls The Other.

Confronted the following morning with the resulting abattoir-like scene along the side of the road, Gene knows he's looking at something he's seen before and had hoped to never see again. Something he knows was caused by his sister. Something he has no idea how to deal with, but knows he somehow must. Unfortunately, things go from worse to screwed when the Sheriff of the neighboring county, a man who worked the Martindale family crime scene 15 years prior, also realizes there's something familiar about the carnage and, upon finding Skye's broken glasses amongst the gore, makes the connection between the two massacres.

I purchased this as an ebook for my Kindle Fire. Overall I enjoyed this book. I found it to be engaging; however, there were some issues. The main distraction was spelling. There were many misspelled words, which I find to be very annoying. Also, the death of one character was confusing. As I read on, there seemed to be two different descriptions of how the death of the character in question occurred. This was not a big issue for me, but it did cause some initial confusion and lead me to go back and re-read some sections. The story was good overall and flowed well, but I would have liked more detail. There wasn't enough gory details for me, but I might be on the far end of the spectrum. Anyway, I would recommend this to anyone looking for an easy to read horror story.
