"Wow, that Kilborn sure can write." - JA Konrath

From the Author

Jack Kilborn is a pen name that author JA Konrath uses on books that are darker and more horrific.

The books in The Konrath/Kilborn Collective can be read in any order, and contain no spoilers for other titles. They also crossover with Konrath's Jack Daniels thriller series. Konrath has sold more than two million books worldwide.

Although I was greatly anticipating the next Jack Kilborn release after reading AFRAID, I really didn't expect it to reach the same level of unabashed terror that AFRAID did.

I was wrong.

ENDURANCE absolutely floored me! The story was executed so flawlessly, with an atmosphere so unsettlingly REAL, that I actually felt the horror as if I was physically there! The pace never lets up long enough for you to take a breath. The characters were so vivd that I was able to effortlessly switch between the scenes into their respective points-of-view. The terror simply NEVER lets up!

JA Konrath (the author's real name) is known primarily for his Jack Daniel's thriller novels, but that could soon change. This man writes some serious horror! His next Kilborn novel, TRAPPED, is due to be released this week.

I'm already terrified!

Very, very frightening and edge-of-your-pants horror. It starts right away, too--

"Did she put her suitcase on the bed?... Was that just the wind behind the curtains?"

Paranoia, Paranoia, Paranoia!

I bought this yesterday and started reading it late into the night-- I had to stop because it was so scary and I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep. My heart was actually pounding when I was reading it, and then of course, every little noise after I put the book down was terrifying. Was someone in the house trying to kill me?

Damn you, Jack Kilborn! Damn You! I won't be able to sleep without a night light for the rest of the month.

This is probably Jack Kilborn's most frightening horror novel yet.

"Endurance" is J.A. Konrath's second offering in the horror genre, written under his pseudonym Jack Kilborn. After reading "Afraid", "Serial Uncut" and this book, I have come to this conclusion: no more reading books by this author, despite I have never read any of his mystery Detective Jack Daniels books. The reasons why I have chosen not to read any more books by him will be revealed as I go over my views on the book.

"Endurance" mainly takes place at a motel, the Rushmore Inn, in a secluded, remote location out in the woods in West Virginia that no one knows about, except for certain people who has ties to the motel. Anyone that checks in at that motel are never checked out, never to be seen again. The story opens with Maria, in town for the triathon, checking in at the Rushmore Inn after finding that the event hotel was full. In her room, she quickly discovers she is not alone and vanishes. A year after Maria's disappearance, five guests - Mal, Deb, Florence, Letti, and Kelly - checks in at the Rushmore Inn. All five are in town for the triathon. Mal is a journalist, Deb is an athletic who have lost her legs to a rock-climbing accident, and Florence, Letti and Kelly are women of three generation from the same family. As soon as they checked in, they discover they are now trapped within the walls of the motel and in desperation of escaping, the secrets within the motel unfold before them. Secrets so horrible that they are kept within the walls of the motel by ensuring the guests will never see the daylight again.

I was not impressed with the book. Considering it is of the horror genre, it didn't scare me at all. I felt that the writer failed to install fear into me as a reader and instead focused on writing the most sickest, goriest scenes he could think of.

I've read some of Jack Kilborn's other books under his alter-ego J.A. Konrath (the Jack Daniels series) and those were enjoyable. I've also read a book he co-wrote ("Serial") which, while not exactly great writing, it was still somewhat disturbing in a "couldn't get the visuals out of my head" kind of way, a trait which has its own merit. Those previous acquaintances (and the free price tag) led me to download this one. This book ("Endurance") however, is like reading a B(---) grade horror movie. The descriptions of the violence were akin to pre-teen boys mixing overcooked spaghetti and peeled grapes into a can of tomato sauce and throwing it all over the girls they like just to gross them out. Add into that the matriach of the bed and breakfast whose description reminded me of Jonathan Winters in drag and her menagerie of children whose descriptions came from random spinnings of "The Wheel of Birth Defects" and I couldn't finish the book. I made it about halfway through before I finally came to my senses and asked myself what the heck I was doing still reading it. I prefer psychological creepiness in the horror novels I read with gore placed for maximum effect - not having it shoved in my face.

I could not finish this one. The plot was very thin and predictable. Once the chasing with the freaks started it, was boring over kill. Do not recommend. No offense to Mr. Kilborn.

Old tired plot. Can you say "The Hills Have Eyes" meets "Wrong Turn" anyone? This books is supposed to be a horror novel but becomes laughable with the overly used birth defects and inbred West Virginians. What makes classic is the author calls the "monsters" stupid in many sections, but has numerous spelling and grammatical errors throughout the book. I can see the real reason the agent didn't accept this for publication.
