“Doesn’t get any darker than this; you can actually feel the blood spatter…” –Hugo & Nebula winner James Patrick Kelly
Enter the world of Nightlife, where the streets crawl with unimaginable demons, and a monster can lurk behind every friendly face...
Matthew Quinn Martin first terrified horror fans with Nightlife, the captivating story of two unlikely monster hunters determined to save the city of New Harbor from the Night Angels—bloodthirsty creatures that feed on the forgotten. Jack Jackson and Beth Becker are among the few who can see these creatures for what they really are, but as they hunt the creatures, a mysterious organization known only as The Division is hunting them.
In the novella Hazardous Material, we get a glimpse of The Division’s origins and aims, when a young man stumbles onto a long-abandoned video arcade—which three decades ago was the site of the largest mass shooting in New York history—and unwittingly uncovers a relic of unimaginable power and mind-altering terror.
And in the never-before-released As the Worm Turns, Jack and Beth are back, along with their faithful dog, Blood. For months they’ve been keeping just one step ahead of The Division, whose enigmatic leader has been pursuing them with the single-minded obsession to capture them by any means necessary. But as Jack and Beth continue their quest to rid the world of the creatures once and for all they find themselves facing off against something even more terrifying than the Night Angels––something that could hold the key to humanity’s salvation…or its doom.
Three amazing horror stories in one chilling bundle...the only thing you won't fear is the price!
Review of Book 1:
Something is haunting the streets of New Harbor, but on Halloween not many seem to takes notice. That is except a homeless man who notices all of his companions disappearing and Beth Becker, a nightclub bartender who becomes alarmed when her best friend and roommate disappear. Beth follows the clues to the homeless man’s graffiti of “Beware the Night Angel” and his ramblings about vampires. Then Beth finds Jack, a man who hunts and kills these creatures. Beth proves herself to Jack after successfully killing a creature that looked like her boyfriend. Together, they will try to fight the creatures that have killed their friends.
This was a fun urban fantasy surrounding the vampire mythology. Most of all though, I liked Beth and Jack’s characters. Beth is strong willed, independent and determined. Beth’s pairing with Jack, mysterious, a loner, and very serious about his work not only made for a great team, but some funny moments as well. The vampires in this story are ruthless, focused very much on eating, using your dreams to lure you in. I liked the subtle changes to all the known vampire lore that were included and all of the action scenes kept it exciting. A few small issues that I had were the many points of view that emerged before settling on just Beth and Jack and some pacing issues with parts that just did not seem necessary.
This book was received for free in return for an honest review.
