WE ARE ALWAYS WATCHING (Sinister Grin Press) offers another solid glimpse into an author who is a master of creating characters that are just as fallible as you and I.
Grandpa Abraham is a great, cranky old man. The relationship he builds with his grandson, West, is wonderful to watch (or read) unfold. Their shared scenes throughout most of the book are the heart and soul of this one.
The story is about a family and their home being stalked from the shadows by a someone, or someones, referring to themselves The Guardians. Odd messages are left outside the house, but take a turn for the freakier when the messages appear INSIDE the home. Is it ghosts? Is it neighborhood kids? Is it someone closer than we think?
The ending is action-packed.
Fair warning: There were some slow chapters in here. The story dragged a bit in spots, but nothing that kept me from enjoying the overall story. After finishing the book, there were still "good guys" that I couldn't pull for, and "bad guys" that didn't get a fair shake. That could just be me, or maybe Shea wants us to question this, as well.
I think you'll have fun with this one.
I give WE ARE ALWAYS WATCHING 4 stars!
Where the book fell short was the plot. I liked the concept a lot and actually thought it was a pretty original story. But there were some things that bothered me, one being that there were some plot elements that felt like they were just forgotten about midway (Grandpa's late night bathroom visits and the cats). I also thought the ending didn't wrap up as well as it could have. As a horror fan, I usually leave endings out of the equation when evaluating a movie as it's almost a given they all suck but I had higher hopes for this one based on the rest of the book. All in all, this was an enjoyable read.
This was an excellent psychological horror tale. It's a haunted house story, although those doing the haunting aren't spectral in nature. The tension ratchets up slowly but steadily. The characters are strongly drawn and well-rounded. The plot is well-defined, and builds relentlessly. Don't start this one at night unless you're good with being up until the wee hours. Four and a half stars.
Generations of family dysfunction and secrets come bubbling to the surface when the Ridley family falls on hard times and must move back home to rural Pennsylvania to live with crusty old Grandpa Abraham.
Unfortunately for Matt, Debi and their son West, Grandpa Abraham isn’t the only thing awaiting their return. The Guardians are there too. Watching their every move. Just as they always have.
Well written with excellent characterizations and certainly no lack of crazy going on. A solid 4.5 Stars and Highly Recommended!
WE ARE ALWAYS WATCHING by Hunter Shea has been described as resembling THE ELEMENTALS by Michael McDowell, but WE ARE ALWAYS WATCHING is so original that I think it resembles only itself.
The protagonist is a 14-year-old boy, but this is not a young adult story.
This book a combo of horror and mystery. Is it a ghost story...yes; is it a monster story...yes; is it a family secret story...yes. WE ARE ALWAYS WATCHING does it all in a very believable, exciting way. I didn't see the twist at the end coming, but the whole book is an exciting read of twists and turns. Highly recommended.
