Formalities first: I was provided an ARC, and yes, we all know what that means. So on to more interesting things. Having read Flowers’ earlier works, the novel REINHEIT and his short stories “Hobo” and “Are You Hungry, Dear” I can HONESTLY say, the first book of the SUBDUE series has far surpassed these previous endeavors. Though he has only a small body of work, Flowers has always been a character-centered author. DWELLING continues this approach, and does so to level unreached in REINHEIT. The depth of his characters’ lives is played out through both contemporary events, intense inner-monologues, and detail-rich memories. Flowers knows his characters so intimately one would almost think he was one of them. His depictions of loss, guilt, and trauma are believable. Each character is deeply troubled, to the point of losing the ability to function among a close network of friends, let alone within the impersonal strictures of society. This is extraordinary psychological horror. However, ala King, there are also actual lurking, creeping, thumping, gleaming, clicking, hissing creatures at work. The blend of the mental with the physical, the illusion with reality, makes for a truly horrific tale. Flowers has lot going on here, with multiple plotlines and flashbacks. At the center of it is a house. An evil dwelling, with its own malevolent history. However, in this case “dwelling” means more than just a home. It is also something within his characters, an anguish so deep it cannot possible remain buried indefinitely. DWELLING is the introduction to this world of Flowers’ creation. There is no resolution at the end. For those who don’t like non-self-contained novels, be forewarned, this is a BOOK 1. And I eagerly await the release of BOOK 2.

I'm going to start this review by telling you that reading a military fiction novel written by someone who was actually in the military and saw battle is a completely different experience to reading a book by an author who thinks he's done enough research to pull it off. Yes, some of the latter are great books, but Dwelling really brought home the terror and heartbreak of war. It touches on everything from the bond soldiers form to how those who have returned home with injuries, both physical and mental, are treated by civilians. I can say that the military portions of this novel were just as interesting and emotional as the horror contained within, and I'm usually not a fan of military fiction. This portion of the book was well thought out and didn't hold back when it comes to telling it how it is. As a civilian, it opened my eyes.

That said, each character in this book comes back from war damaged in one way or another. Jonathan watches his best friend, Ricky, die in an attack in Iraq, losing a leg in the same attack. Bobby returns with a werewolf curse (I didn't see that coming) and Jake is a minister who loses his faith due to his experiences. Each man must deal with his demons in his own way. While trying to find his way back to God, Jake indulges in women and alcohol and Jonathan and Bobby drink to forget. The characters in this book are extremely complex and you can't help but connect to each one in a different way.

As for the horror element in Dwelling, it starts off subtle at first and steadily builds throughout the book. Bobby is learning what he is and wants to know why it happened and how he can control it. Jonathan and Jake see “ghosts.” They all have to figure out if what they're experiencing is real or if it's just a manifestation of their PTSD.

Dwelling is an enjoyable read. I purchased the sequel and am looking forward to reading it. The Dwelling centers around a group of childhood friends who are connected by more than just fond memories. Ricky and Jonathan served together in military deployed to the mid east. Maggie, Ricky's wife, and her sister, Karen, who married Jonathan, waited for them to return safely. Bobby returned from his military service damaged beyond repair. Jake also served in the military as a chaplain. Back in civilian life, he has lost his faith from what he experienced there.

In an attack on their armored vehicle, Ricky dies and Jonathan sees something that haunts him. Then Ricky begins to haunt Jonathan. Bobby is haunted by a solider who he failed to save. Bobby is haunted by the moon. All the hauntings are connected. The hauntings are herding the friends to a hell that makes their war experiences pale in comparison. If they do not reconnect and work together, the evil will pick them off one by one. An enjoyable horror with a fresh plot.

It seems as though we all grow up , if from small towns, with being warned ,if not by parents , some adult to "Stay Away From There" There , being some old or dangerous place. We did not ! I'm sure many of you did not either. I believe it's somehow a rite of passage. This story is about such a place. As children the characters ( four boys and a girl) venture into this forbidden place and somehow it is erased from their memories as they grow to adulthood. The young men go off to war and lead their lives apart excep for one , Rickey marries the young girl Maggie and then goes to war , where he dies in battle. The others all return to hopefully continue on with the ire lives. But something from their past is drawing them together , haunting them. An evil that only some of can feel. This start of the series Subdue is a thrilling, scary, Mystery that you don't want to miss. I RECOMMEND!
