The story itself was good, interesting, unusual and filled with characters that are believable, well portrayed and complex. The premise is interesting and well done. The horror builds slowly as each character moves inevitably toward his fate. It is realist and frightening. A book I preferred to read during the daylight. This story is not for the faint of heart.
If you like your horror with a great deal of violence, malevolence with a scare and creep factor at the top of the scale this is the book for you.

Parent's Little Black Book
The unique writing style of the prologue nearly made me discard the book -- I didn't care for it at all. But I try to give things more of a shot than that, and I'm glad I did, because the story was excellent!
Lastly, I think that the novel could have used somewhat more in-depth character development. That of the protagonist and the woman were basically ok, but others could have benefited from being more fully developed.
My second and third points are suggestions; no "stars deducted" for those! But the typos definitely merited decreasing my rating from 5 stars to 4. Someone needs to pay a little more attention during editing! Otherwise, I quite enjoyed the story, and look forward to reading more from this author, as well as recommending him to friends.
It is not purely a thriller though. It has weird, sci fi creature elements too. I really enjoyed it! It kind of reminded me of Preston and Child's Relic.
I originally wanted to give this four stars, but I couldn't think of any flaws. I highly recommend this one!
Also, I think the author has a very unique style. Particularly in the opening passage. This really makes a book stand out to me and it deserves five stars for that.
I wanted to also mention that the audiobook was excellently done. I used the whispersync option.
You think you know what's going to happen, but you don't. Makes you wonder about these private psych clinics. Altering genes on persons who won't be missed. Assuming your God , and you have the money, influence to create a FRANKENSTEIN. Exciting, you'll have a hard time putting this book down. And there is a LOVE angle, lost hope, domestic violence, child abuse. This book touches all the human psyches negatively and the impact is beyond belief. Please READ THIS BOOK. I would rate this book 6.5 its worth it...
