“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!
Welcome to another review during my Monsters, Madmen, Mayhem. Oh My! Today it’s a different take on vampires. It’s one of the things that makes the book interesting. Just think worms with teeth! 🙂
Beth shifted in her seat. The ancient truck had no air-conditioning, and her short-sleeved gingham top was sweat soaked.
What I thought of this book
Jack and Beth continue to hunt down any hives of the worm like creatures that are sort of like strange versions of vampires. They can look like anyone, so it’s hard to to know some times if it’s a worm or the person you are thinking of. It makes it hard to make sure you are killing the right person or to not let emotions get the better of you when your staring down someone you love and you know it’s not them.
Jack and Beth are also on the run from The Division a group of government officials who are probably not even on the record books as being government officials. They are tracking down the worms and are tracking down Jack because he use to work with them a long time ago and knows things. He knows how to make the vile’s from the venom that helps you be able to see the worms for what they are.
Something is also wrong with Jack and he thinks it’s cancer, but with out proper treatment he doesn’t really know what it is, but the thinks it’s from all the venom he has injected himself with.
There is something else out there besides the worms and it’s a higher being than the worms but it also hunts the worms. The Division catch up to them and all kind of hell breaks loose.
I like the characters Jack and Beth and I was excited that Jack finally let his guard down with Beth and let her get closer to him. In the first book he was so holding her far away so that she didn’t get hurt.
Nightlife: As the Worms Turn was a book that had it’s ups and downs. When I read the first book I was real curious about where the story was going but at times it was a tad boring. Same thing happened with this book. It was real interesting at the beginning then it had some serious lag time and then picked up again towards the end. OOOOH and the ending made me so mad….I wanted to throw the book across the room!!! There has to be another book coming cause it didn’t end like it was over, but even if there is one it won’t make me any happier about what happened at the end of this one. 🙁
Though it had it’s ups and downs and I totally hated the ending it was still a decent book and if there is another one I am sure curiosity will get the better of me and I will read it. 🙂 It’s not a real scary book but more action based so if you like that type then you might give this series a try.
