Dustin Reviews: Ravage: An Apocalyptic Horror Novel by Iain Rob Wright


Ravage: An Apocalyptic Horror Novel by Iain Rob WrightFIRST PEOPLE GOT SICK. THEN THEY GOT VERY SICK..

Nick Adams is just a normal guy. He loves his family, appreciates his home, and covets his car. But he absolutely hates his job. Which is what makes it so difficult that not a single customer has come by his store today. It seems as though there’s a bug going around, something that has come out of nowhere and is keeping people at home. Still, it’s probably nothing to worry about. People get sick all the time.

And besides, things are finally starting to look up. Nick’s first customer of the day has just stumbled through the door…

HIS DAY IS ABOUT TO GET WORSE..

It won’t be long before Nick’s entire life is turned upside down, sending him on a frantic journey through a ravaged world that will ultimately lead him 500 feet upwards to a hilltop amusement park. Is it the last safe place on Earth, or are the monsters at the top of the hill even worse than the ones below?

WELCOME TO RIPLEY HEIGHTS. WHERE THE FUN NEVER STARTS.

Ravage: An Apocalyptic Horror Novel was a disappointment after reading Sam: A Novel Of Horror and Suspense. Maybe my expectations were too high to enjoy another Iain Rob Wright horror. The true horror were the missing words, poor spelling and punctuation which tore this reader away from the story way too many times to have given this book a higher rating. The story was good except for the unbelievability factor that none of the characters had apparently ever seen a zombie movie or read a zombie novel. It wasn’t until nearly halfway into the novel before the characters finally suggested the word “zombie”. Even with the countless WTF moments, Mr. Wright kept this reader’s attention so I could see how the story ended… or was that “the end”???

Dustin Reviews: ‘Sam: A Novel Of Horror and Suspense’ by Iain Rob Wright


'Sam: A Novel Of Horror and Suspense' by Iain Rob WrightWANT TO HEAR A SECRET?

When washed-up priest, Angela Murs, and skittish ghost hunter, Tim Golding, are summoned to a vast country manor to help a sick little boy, they have no idea what to expect. It’s clear that young Sammie is a very disturbed child, but there’s surely no way he could have been behind the recent spate of accidents, or the death of his father. The child is dirty, malnourished, and perhaps the victim of a negligent mother, but as Angela and Tim’s investigations take them deeper into the mystery, they realise that there is much more going on than they ever could have expected. When the blood begins to flow, there will be no escape, and little Sammie will finally be forced to show his true nature.

Sam: A Novel Of Horror and Suspense was an interesting read. Characters were well developed and distinctive. The story moved along quite nicely. Frequently I heard faint background music in my head as if I were watching a horror movie. Any moment, I expected to hear Tubular Bells, the ominous music from the movie ‘The Exorcist’. If I say any more I’ll give away the story and you won’t be left cursing at yourself because you didn’t see the ending coming. FYI: Don’t read this book in the dark…. or alone.
