It was like watching one of those old drive in movies on speed! I'm still shaking my head at the ending and how easily I was fooled by where I thought the story was headed. Very nice twist! I liked it!
Desperate to reconnect with each other and recharge their sexual batteries, they decide to use their Spring Break holiday to visit a retreat, and as it is a long drive, they decide to stop off overnight at a motel in Flanagan, a one-horse town without a horse.
The following day, the couple are taken hostage by an unsavoury group of locals and are subjected to a series of twisted "games", and are forced to perform increasingly nasty and perverse acts of physical, mental and sexual torture upon each other, and also have brutal sexual acts performed on them by their captors.
To top it off, Chris and Helen are informed that when the bells ring on an old alarm clock that is placed nearby, they will be killed.
The tension mounts as the clock ticks, and as the reader reaches what they think is the end, that's when James H. Longmore throws in the plot twist, which you won't see coming, and it's a doozy!
This is extreme horror, extreme sex, and it's an extremely good read, spoiled a little by more than a few grammatical errors.
...those who might seek red rooms and/or gore sites through the use of Tor, when not creating the content themselves.
With a twist that pops, allowing the reader to feel that energy felt upon the first words on the first page, the story builds more upon the reader's investment in the novel.
While many who write extreme horror write purely to shock the reader, they lack the proper aspects of storytelling and create shock for shock sake, and fail as an author telling a story. In Flanagan we see that the author is not out to cause a gasp at a graphic scene solely for the sake of shock value, but rather issue the physical and psychological with reason and with merit.
This fast-paced novel by James H. Longmore will be a welcome companion with those who enjoy the intensity of extremes and sexualities of Wrath James White, Edward Lee, and Jack Ketchum.
Flanagan by James H. Longmore is a graphic page-turner written for those of us who enjoy merited fictional violence, and is a success not only as an extreme horror novel, but as a novel.
Anyone who has previously read one of his novels, knows what to expect. As for those who don't, let's make this as clear as possible. The violence, sex, and profanity in his novels are all to the max. That being said, if you are a fan of Saw-type or Rob Zombie movies, James H. Longmore is your kind of author. If you are unsure whether your stomach or nerves could handle it, by the end of the foreword, you'll know. Longmore does not waste any time in getting the details out.
Once you're past the gory beginning, the story settles in and allows you to get to know the Sewells, an appealing, attractive couple that seeks adventurous thrills with a generous dosage of kink. But thrills can be addicting and sometimes the line that you're willing to cross can become ever so evasive.
If this review is a bit vague, it is by design. Giving any more details, would certainly ruin the gruesome ride this tale will take you on. And you especially wouldn't want anything said that could prepare you for the whopper of a twist at the end.
Mr. Longmore has a sick and twisted imagination. He is in serious need of mental therapy. Let's hope he never gets it.
