the first book by Jack Kilborn J.A Konrath that I ve ever read, and let me tell you it s not going to be the last I was in the perfect mental state for a book like Afraid I really wanted to read something action packed, with a military experiment gone bad, and a group of people trying to survive And Afraid was exactly that, plus it was terrifying and totally gory, which I adored So, in Afraid the small town of Safe Haven gets a surprise visit from a group of physically enhanced soldiers, created to bring mayhem and distraction, when a helicopter crashes near the town None of the people has the slightest idea what is going on or why those people are suddenly after them And what originally looks like a military mission gone bad, may turned out to be exactly what was planned for the little town This book as insane So much action, never a boring moment, always someone s life in immediate danger, there was so much death and fights and running from the enemy, it was really insane, beautifully insane The first few chapters were the most terrifying thing I ve ever read, and I read them at night, right before sleep The story is very addicting, once I had the book in my hands I couldn t stop reading.I loved the characters, even the bad guys, there all just gave life to the story Seeing them suffer and run for their lifes kept me on edge for the whole book My favorite one has to be Duncan, the little kid involved in the story, he was pretty amazing for a kid If things like that happened to me when I was his age, I d just hide under bed until the bad guys found me Anyways, this is an amazing story It has a movie sense about it I could picture everything going on But be warned, it is not for younger readers There is so much torture and gore, that I would only recommend this to adults only and not the fainthearted ones Jack Kilborn knows that a small town in America s heartland is the perfect place to set a horror thriller remote, surrounded by shadowy woods, and sparsely populated by residents who still live by an unlocked door policy After reading this book, residents of small towns everywhere will be locking their doors with deadbolts and going to bed

America s heartland is the perfect place to set a horror thriller remote, surrounded by shadowy woods, and sparsely populated by residents who still live by an unlocked door policy After reading this book, residents of small towns everywhere will be locking their doors with deadbolts and going to bed with.357 Magnums under their pillows I know I would.The evil that descends upon this town, literally, in a helicopter, is motivated by the worst of all nightmares inflicting pain and death for the sheer enjoyment of it Sure, there is an agenda behind it all, but the reader realizes pretty quickly that the agenda is secondary to the basic goals of pain and death, in that order And pain is dispersed among the townspeople in spectacularly grisly fashion Mr Kilborn is very good at visiting every possible nightmare from biting to stabbing, from burning to drowning, dismemberment to electric shock, with unremitting darkness and the occasional bout of claustrophobia thrown into the mix One can almost picture Kilborn sitting at his keyboard and rubbing his hands in cackling glee as he speeds from one ghastly vision to the next This is not to say that the entire book is nothing but gore The reason this book succeeds so well is that beneath the surface layer of horror is a tight, strong, well founded story that follows the path of three and a half unlikely heroes as they battle not only to survive but to overcome the monstrosity that has derailed their lives The fact that all of them have been clothed in very real flesh and blood by the author will keep the reader turning pages to see what happens next, because you will care what befalls each of them.If you are seeking a page turner that will have you switching onlights as darkness descends and will linger in your mind long after you ve reached the end, then AFRAID is the book for you Just do yourself a favor and try to read it when you can consume it in one gulp It s that good Afraid is the first horror novel from Jack

action hybrid that travels at an unrelenting pace, and is inhabited by likeable heroes and vile villains Set during one harrowing evening, Afraid pits the citizens of the sleepy Wisconsin Northwood s town of Safe Haven against a special forces unit programmed with implanted computer chips and chemical enhancements to torture, maim and kill whoever gets in their way How and why are these trained killers let loose on the unsuspecting town That answer lies in the land of spoiler alerts, and I won t tread that line in this mini review Rest assured, the Safe Haven citizenry average citizens who could reside in any American town rise up and fight back against this Goliath like enemy While I generally shun spoilers, I will warn readers about becoming too attached to these likeable characters Like I said, the pace of Afraid is relentless, and there are casualties along the way even the fleshed out characters you can imagine settling down to a good long life are at risk of untimely demise
