Afraid by Jack Kilborn

afraidkilbornBy Eric Stein

For all the horror lovers out there, this is a novel for you, just in time for Halloween. Jack Kilborn (aka J.A. Konrath) delivers an incredibly chilling, gruesome tale of the small city of Safe Haven, Wisconsin. For the readers out there who love horror, or even those like myself that want to give horror novels a try, this book is perfect. It has everything you could need to satisfy your Halloween horror cravings; blood, gore and a detailed story that is not too cheesy. If this book were a movie you would definitely need either a loved one or a very big blanket to comfort you.
Right as you begin reading the novel you learn that Safe Haven is anything but safe. It is quickly established after the crash of a helicopter that something is horrendous is going to happen. The story follows various members of the city; primarily its old chief of police, a young firefighter and a single working mother. The book draws you in to each of these characters plights, just as the horror unfolds before them. Will they make it through? Will there be causalities along the way? This is all something you will need to find out.
This book is not for the faint of heart. I am a major horror movie buff, and even this book made me cringe at points! Needless to say, I had to find out what was going to happen to the characters I grew attached to. So if you’re a horror fan or in need of an exciting scare for this Halloween, check this book out! Just be careful; there may be someone lurking behind you.
Afraid is available in audiobook and electronic format at the Thunder Bay Public Library
Happy Halloween
