    Something about the story and the way Mr Thomas writes just leaves me with a deep, down disquieting feeling I will say that 2 books into this author, and I feel he knows what s up His first book was messed up from the start And I mean that in a good way This Honestly, if it were almost, any other author, I d have quit This started as a slow burn But, hold on tight, because it gets going Had I quit, that would have been real stupid on my end I did have the heebie, jeebies Not too big a deal But, dude..when my short hairs stand straight up, that does it Now y all don t know me, but I have hair on my head That s it.When I say my short hairs have stood up, that means that I m so scarified, that I ve found an unknown region of hairs LOL O.K.,.that s a lie, but just barely Maybe Also, my thanks to the author, Inkshares Press, whom I m keeping my beastly eye on, and also Netgalley Still, Inkshares have been coming o...

    DNF 26%The writing is so detailed it s painful Every single move is chronicled and I m so bored I can t take it any I feel like I m reading a script.Here s a sample She did a quick pass over her bottom teeth and spat a bubbly mixture of toothpaste and saliva into the sink Cupping a hand under the faucet, she slurped cool water into her mouth She spat the water out and rinsed the sink before turning the faucet off THE ENTIRE STORY IS LIKE THIS I mean, a simple She brushed her teeth would have sufficed Amiright At 26%, one day has passed that consisted of cleaning house Imagine the amount of detail involved in describing a house cleaning Ugh I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    I hope this book does not just get pigeon holed as a horror novel, I hope that this gets a wider audience than just readers of the genre because while it is a very suspenseful and at times scary book, it is also so much than that I loved this authors first book Kill Creek and was very excited when I was given the chance to read and review an arc copy of this This is a book about friendship and family ties and ultimately, loss It s also about survival What people do and tell themselves to get by when the crap is hitting the fan with the realization that the world won t stop turning because you need it to and that life goes on whether or not you want it to Right from the onset you know that the characters are going through it From the beginning you know that they are running from something, trying to regroup, and get themselves back to some sense of normalcy This setup is what made the book for me in terms of ...

    Scott Thomas, author of Kill Creek, delivers a most masterful read Horror pertaining to childhood has always freaked me out Violet freaked me out on another level I can hang with evil toys, urban legends, and the paranormal What I can t hang with is imaginary friends Violet plays on that creepy aspect from our childhoods Imaginary friends have always scared me Kids seeing an invisible person or thing and spending time with them Kids converse, confide in, and get into mischief with them To me, it s spine chilling because you really don t know who or what is talking to you, your friends, or your children Bystanders can t see them or communicate with them When a kid mentions their imaginary friends by name, I freeze up and chills run down my spine You don t really know if the imaginary friend is benevolent or malevolent until it s than likely too late What happens when the kid grows up Does the imaginary friend...

    This book I should have researched it Specifically, I should have double checked the page count Because in paperback form it s erroneously listed as 300 on GR In Kindle form it is correctly listed at 446 And I only really had 300 pages worth of interest in it Which, frankly, should be than enough to tell a story Especially a story that isn t all that elaborate or original A story about a 41 year old newly widowed woman who takes her 8 year old daughter back to her childhood s vacation cabin only to discover that something evil lurks around and it s been hungrily awaiting her return Creepy dying small towns, disappearing kids, evil presences, hunky sheriff, weird locals all been done And the author doesn t really improve on it so much as he overwrites it Which it to say, boy, does this book need slimming down It s dangerously fat American fat It can barely move It barely does It s so slow, it might be standi...

    I received an ARC of this novel via NetGalley and Inkshares in exchange for an honest review When Kris Barlow s husband is killed in a car accident, an image of the summer cottage where she spent her childhood emerges in her minda place that suddenly feels like homea place to heal The summer cottage on lost lake was a place where 10 year old Krissy was able to say goodbye to her dying mother Now, almost three decades later, Kris returns with her daughter Sadie to the remote town of Pacington, Kansaswhere an old friend has been waiting for her return.Thank you Inkshares Violet, is a fantastic new novel by the author of Kill Creek which I LOVED The author takes a slightly different approach with this novel, delivering a mystery psychological thriller based horror The town itself has a rather dark history with both its creation and the tragic events that occur afterwards This historical backstory immediately add...

    I read the author s 2017 debut novel KILL CREEK the day before I read his upcoming horror novel VIOLET Both are literate horror, set in Kansas, in economically deprived locales Both center on a house, in both cases long abandoned and uninhabited by the living The setting in VIOLET is a lake house on a bluff near Lost Lake in Southeastern Kansas When Colorado veterinarian Kate s husband dies in a horrible auto accident, she and eight year old daughter Sadie travel to the lake house of Kate s childhood, inherited from her late father Her last summer there was tragic, as her mother died from cancer, so already there are parallels to the current situation and little Sadie s silent grief But Pacington, the tiny community near Lost Lake, suffers from its own griefs Several families have suffered unspeakable, inexplicable tragedies As Kate will eventually discover, the explanations of accident or roving child predat...

    Let me say first that I have been looking forward to Scott Thomas s next book since the moment I finished reading his first book, Kill Creek In the meantime, I began to worry if Violet would live up to what I wanted it to be So while I was so excited when I was approved by NetGalley to read this, I was nervous What if Scott Thomas had a sopho slump What if he s a one hit wonder Turns out, I had nothing to worry about Violet, and Scott Thomas, exceeded my huge expectations Violet is an achievement The tension is set from the very first page The first, probably, half of the book is ALL foreboding and anxiety inducing set up After all, you know that there s this imaginary friend ghost that s going to show up and you re just waiting for it to happen Violet is like the shark from Jaws, you don t meet her until well into the story but you can FEEL her presence over the entire plot She s there, in the darkness, watc...
