I did read The List, Trapped, Endurance, and most of the Jack Daniels novels; so it was great to see most of the characters again.
I was mostly disappointed in Sarah because she fought like a Warrior Queen to protect her kids on that hell island in (Trapped) and it's as though she completely let go of living after that horrible experience.
Moni was by far my favorite character because even though she went through hell in (Whiskey Sour and Stirred), she didn't let fear consume her life and I loved her 'don't give a crap' personality.
Deb was somewhat annoying to me with her 'all about me personality but her and Mal are definitely a strong couple in or out of fear.
Now Tom, I was definitely happy he returned in this story, he was my favorite character in (The List). He didn't shine as bright in this story as he did in (The List) but the fact that he ran into danger to save people he didn't know made him my hero.
But the my absolute favorite hero is Mathison. I'm actually going to read (Afraid) because of him.
Overall, this book was a great idea and I can't wait to read more from these authors.
I was actually more frightened in the beginning when learning about Butler House's past - seriously, this stuff gave me chills and I wouldn't even read this at night. All of this changed, however, when our traumatized protagonists actually made it to the place. I can't get too much into things, but it got disappointing from here. The scare tactics were eerie enough, but when the main characters - who I'm deliberately leaving nameless so not to spoil the surprise, if you want to call it that - finally started to learn the truth about this "experiment" and got the upper hand, it just lost its appeal for me. The real threat of danger was gone by this point and it turned out the way you expected it to. That's not saying nobody dies or was ever in any serious danger, but I'm just saying that once the truth comes out about what was really happening, it was no longer suspenseful.
I haven't read all of the Kilborn books, but I do believe I've read all of the ones I'm going to. They were okay in that they were dark, sinister, macabre - take your pick. I like books like that. But like his Konrath books, I still can't identify with any of his characters - by that, I don't generally care for any of them. It's hard to read an author whose characters don't draw you in for one reason or another. With that said, its been 'stimulating', but now the curtain falls on the Kilborn/Konrath universe for this reader.
