    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 muchthan 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 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 muchthan 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...

    Scott Thomas first release, Kill Creek, was already on my radar due to the insanely positive reviews I have seen from many a trusted horror reviewer so I was delighted to win a giveaway, run by the publisher, for this book It is safe to say his soph release equally measures up Little Krissy grew up with her summers spent at her family s lake house She holds fond memories of her time there, only slightly tainted by the memories of her concluding summer and ...

    VIOLET is the second full length novel I have read by author Scott Thomas This is most definitely a character driven novel, with emotional attachment that you can feel from the start The atmosphere is already building from the very first page, as well as the intense characterization.Kris Barlow and her young daughter, Sadie, have just suffered the traumatic loss of their husband father in an accident While Kris feelings are understandably and realistically torn between her own emotions, VIOLET is the second full length novel I have read by author Scott Thomas This is most definitely a character driven novel, with emotional attachment that you can feel from the start The atmosphere is already building from the very first page, as well as the intense characterization.Kris Barlow and her young daughter, Sadie, have just suffered the traumatic loss of their husband father in an accident While Kris feelings are understandably and realistically torn between her own emotions, finances, and adjustment, she also has to shoulder the grief of her daughter This is the most challenging, as Sadie lapses into a near silent, joyless existence no longer the carefree, fun loving child she used to be once you went into the darkness, you never came outLike the hole in the groundthat daddy lived in nowKris makes the decision to move them to a summer home, that w...

    I am going to do something I don t normally do and that is to comment on the physical appeal of the book itself In this age of modern technology the pages of this book actually have the feel of ages gone by The texture feels good in my hands and when you look at the edge of the pages they are all sort of shredded like they were torn from a sheet one by one and fastened to the spine of the book I don t know about you, but that really is a turn on for my book fetish As for the authors writing I am going to do something I don t normally do and that is to comment on the physical appeal of the book itself In this age of modern technology the pages of this book actually have the feel of ages gone by The texture feels good in my hands and when you look at the edge of the pages they are all sort of shredded like they were torn from a sheet one by one and fastened to the spine of the book I don t know about you, but that really is a turn on for my book fetish As for the authors writing ability, I have to admit that his use of metaphors fill the pages of this book from one end to the other I really got a kick out of his referring to a lineup of empty beer cans as a redneck Stonehenge Unfortunately, this very bit of wit on the author s part made my finishing of this work a lot of work I kept looking to see how manypages were l...
