Overview

“I’ve only dared to read it in the daylight.” —Kaly Soto, Deputy Weekend Editor, the New York Times Book Review

At the end of a dark prairie road, nearly forgotten in the Kansas countryside, is the Finch House. For years it has remained empty, overgrown, abandoned. Soon the door will be opened for the first time in decades. But something is waiting, lurking in the shadows, anxious to meet its new guests…

When best-selling horror author Sam McGarver is invited to spend Halloween night in one of the country’s most infamous haunted houses, he reluctantly agrees. At least he won’t be alone; joining him are three other masters of the macabre, writers who have helped shape modern horror. But what begins as a simple publicity stunt will become a fight for survival. The entity they have awakened will follow them, torment them, threatening to make them a part of the bloody legacy of Kill Creek.

A difficult book to put down I couldn't help, but read it in 3 sittings. The supernatural scares are vivid while letting your imagination bring the horror to life. The reveals are well foreshadowed (if someone easy to guess after the first hint) and the characters are all interesting. I'd recommend the book to anyone looking to lose themselves and lose track of time the whole time they're reading.

Kill Creek by Scott Thomas This book tries to do a lot of things and succeeds in nearly all of those things. While it isn't perfect, it certainly was thrilling, kept me reading and overall feels like a solid entry in the horror genre. Characters were great, and the plot was fairly predictable and not really groundbreaking, but the secret weapon of this book is atmosphere. The atmosphere/setting that Scott Thomas paints the picture of is beautifully terrifying and puts you behind every creaked door, dark hallway, eerie sounds, and deep darkness that the novel conveys so well. Things I hoped for: - MORE SCARES!! There were a lot of times I felt Scott Thomas was holding back, and for a novel with 400 pages, I was hoping for just a bit more house lore and creep factor to ooze in. He gets the right amount in near the end, but I wanted more even pacing, which is why I knocked a star down in the review. - Also, more Lore! More lore on the haunted house and why are we afraid? This almost felt more or less abandoned at certain points in place of character, which isn't the worst, but it left me wanting more of the world and why that house is hell. Hell House by Richard Matheson did that much better than this novel, but I still loved the heart and nods to 70s/80s horror throughout this book and you can tell Scott Thomas loved it. - Lastly more Character Nuance: I really LOVED the characters but I also felt that they were a bit cornered at certain points in place of the mighty plot. Plot is crucial and a driving force behind the character's motivations, but you almost see their arcs moving too quickly or not developing enough. Character development is there, but it felt slightly rushed. The novel may have been better overall had it been longer so we can see more of the characters and details on that house that would haunt our dreams. Overall though, great storytelling! Solid Author and wonderful debut. Look forward to reading more, but it's alright to get a bit more intense Scott Thomas, your audience loves it. It felt as if he was holding back at certain points (definitely not with the gore, dear lord!) but with the scares. Give us something creepier, under your skin terrifying. As a horror fan, that's my only major criticism. Other than that, check this book out! It's really more of a horror/thriller but it's paced really well, was a swift and fun read from start to finish, and at certain times... you just might find yourself looking behind you.... ;)
