    • Three people are brought together during a freak fog and land in a small town in Scotland. The town seems nearly deserted and disaster is in the air, eery and ominous. There is death everywhere, gruesome and gory. Monsters and demons run amok, feasting on the remains of the villagers. It seems that two Celtic deities are battling it out, and there is a small boy who holds the key to victory.Okay, dark nights, fog, demons, dead bodies, no way outybe these ideas together aren't original, but the w [...]


    • Okay well where to start? Firstly let me say that the back of the book describes an almost zombie like invasion but in reality the zombie like puppets were only a small portion of the book. The book is really about two ancient deities at conflict using the small town of Wakely and its inhabitants as pawns in the game. The book was a fast paced read and I really enjoyed that it was not bogged down with over exaggerated descriptions and too much emotional baggage of the main characters. This book [...]


    • The book was fine at best; long and drawn out, and poorly edited. At one point the author changed from rating distance in meters, to feet. I was able to finish the book in a day, but thought, many times, about not finishing because it didn't feel worth my time. I knew it would bug me if I never finished though, so I trudged through. The ending was a vast disappointment. The author painstakingly explains every little detail about every stupid thing and then cruises through the last 100 pages leav [...]


    • REVIEW: FROM WITHIN by John DowI quite liked this book, and indeed it was very scary, in that implacable way I so prefer. In the wrong hands, the plot and theme could very easily have gone off the tracks, but gratifyingly it proceeded apace and seamlessly. Author John Dow juggles a number of characters, keeping them involved while the village, its populace, and the immediate surrounds experience literal hell on Earth. Readers who like their horror well-written, with empathetic characters, and a [...]


    • You should definitely check out this book. It is far from your typical brainless zombie novel. Set in an eerie, ancient village in Scotland, it is the story of a woman, two men, a child, some hellhounds, a couple of long-forgotten deities, and a whole raft of zombies. The setting was just as much a character as those I previously mentioned. I picked this book up on a whim, and was so pleasantly surprised by how great it was once I started it. "From Within" is definitely one that you should try o [...]


    • This is a thoroughly engrossing read, which will keep you on the edge of your seat until the end. The author has a brilliant way of describing everything going on in such a way that it feels as though you're watching it all unfold. This is a great addition to the horror genre, and I highly recommend it for those that enjoy a supernatural/horror reading experience that will envelop you into its world! 5 stars!


    • Not a bad read, bit of zombie action but mostly about supernatural entities controlling zombies in a small english village. Didn't really care enough about the characters to get into it really, but read to the end so thats a good sign!





    • Thought it was interesting and told it in very good details, I really liked it and going to read another one by this author.
