My Review of Blood Red by Jason Bovberg

20828228
So as you all know, I’ve been reading Jason Bovberg’s masterpiece of a novel, Blood Red, and I finished it late last night.

Now that I’m up, I wrote a review about it.

What a riveting tale.

Okay, Rachel is in her late teens, and when she wakes up one day, her world is red.

From the beginning, Jason Bovberg‘s story is dripping with this mortifying, dark atmosphere: Rachel’s home town (and the rest of the world) is no longer what it was. A red sky hangs over everything, and to her growing horror, those she spoke to just a day before, whether it were lovingly or not, are all dead.

A red light pulses from beneath their skin, in their heads, and it is this red light’s…journey that had me holding my breath throughout the whole novel.

This red light is causing weird changes in these corpses, the breath-holding anticipation for when things hit the fan at last is heavy on every page.

And the pay off is smart, gripping, and does not disappoint.

But at its heart, this is a story about a daughter and her father. The coming of age tale of a young woman coming to grips with a changing world without her father will strike a chord with any young adult, yet the book is written in such a brilliant way that any ‘adult’ can read it and be engrossed.

A great dash of horror, of anticipation, of familial love, and of the imminent hopelessness when one can’t see how to get out of a completely foreign situation makes this book 5 star worthy for me.

I greatly look forward to Jason’s next book in the Blood Red series, Draw Blood.


I start James Newman‘s Animosity today. And I’ll let you all know what I think of it soon. It’s incredibly important to me to read fellow author’s work in my genre. And so far I’m thoroughly impressed.
Like I said in my last post, it only makes me want to be my best to put my best work out there.
About Animosity:
Andrew Holland is a bestselling horror writer. Although none of his neighbors read “that stuff”, they are proud to know a “celebrity.” But everything changes after Andy finds the body of a murdered child several hundred yards from his front door. Before long the writer’s life is in danger as his former friends become monsters – more terrifying than any fictional villains he never imagined.

Keep your bite!

Gothic Horror And Inspiration
It was always my intention as of late, with Sinner Sharpe to delve into the horror he's facing--not physical horror--at least not yet, but the mental horror. He's seeing horrific visions, he's losing large gaps of time, he's being attacked on his ship (an already enclosed space) for weeks.
DRACULA is (finally) out in E-Book Format!
If you haven't opened your email by now (and why aren't you subscribed to the newsletter, yet?) then you don't know that DRACULA: Book 6, the final book in The Dark World series has been released!
‘Dracula’ is Live – The End of The Dark World series Is Here
It's been a wild ride since the start of The Dark World series with Book 1 back in 2013/2014. Naturally, a lot has changed since the first book (just read through the blog to see how much), and although this journey has been beset with trials, drawbacks, and more, I'm proud to say the series is finally finished. I feel free. Elated.
