Terror perpetrated against children is the theme. 19. August 2010
Von Mary Shore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
If I had known more about the actual theme of the book before I bought it, I would have passed it by. This is no tea cozy mystery, nor is it "gothic" just in the sense of being set among old stone buildings and wind-swept moors in England. The plot is driven by child sexual abuse and the murder of toddler girls. I finished the book because it drew me in, as a page-turner should, and because I liked the two amateur sleuths--a vicar and a psychiatrist--so much. But on nearly every page, it seems, one encounters the terror, abuse, and murder of children and the panic of their parents as various youngsters go missing. If you can keep company with these themes and still enjoy such a story, you will likely be impressed by the pacing of the story and the twists and turns that keep you guessing about what on earth is happening. The book well-written; even so, it is nothing I would want to read again or recommend to friends.

"We're not supposed to be here. It's not safe." 8. Juni 2010
Von Luan Gaines - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Richly atmospheric, Bolton sets the pace for her riveting thriller from the first page in a gothic setting, an ancient cathedral in ruins and the graveyards that border the new home of a recently-arrived family. The rest of the village consists of tall, gloomy buildings, cobblestone streets and the moors that surround man's attempt to civilize nature. A more modest house of worship stands near the ruins, a new minister arriving to tend to the congregation. The village of Heptonclough is steeped in the traditions of the old beliefs, harvest rituals, bonfires and bloody sacrifices to appease cruel gods. The occupants of the bright new house are thrilled with their location, bordered by overgrown cemeteries with tumbled gravestones and wild vines. But as the adventurous Fletcher boys, Tom, ten, and Joe, five, explore the spooky parameters of their property, young Tom grows increasingly subdued, sensing that they are being watched.

While the boys' freedom is spoiled by their fear and an increasing awareness of a girl who hides in the shadows, whether well-meaning or malevolent, there are an assortment of other characters to flesh out this moody thriller: the handsome new minister, Harry Laycock; Gillian, a tormented mother who wanders the moors in search of her young daughter lost in a fire; a disabled psychiatrist attempting to bring closure to the challenging Gillian; and the wealthy family that virtually owns Heptonclough, their sense of entitlement inviolable. Most terrifying of all: this place is not safe for little girls, as evidenced by the tiny skeletons unearthed when a cemetery wall collapses. The happy shouts of children and harried parents are stilled by the horror of the disappearance of five-year-old Joe Fletcher and his baby sister, Millie.

Something is terribly wrong in this idyllic village on the moors of Northern England, as evidenced by the loss of innocents and the sobs of distraught parents. While Tom can get no one to believe him about the girl in the shadows, the spark between Harry Laycock and psychiatrist Evi Oliver is tainted by Gillian's crush on the minister, and clear warnings- disappearing children and a chalice of blood- ratchet Heptonclough into a state of panic, malevolence seeping into every page as death draws near. Will little Millie be the next sacrifice? My heart in my throat, I cannot look away from Bolton's perfectly crafted tale. Luan Gaines/2010.

Creepy page-turner 10. August 2010
Von PEwy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. After reading about it on some book blog, I thought it was going to be all about a creepy place--sort of like how the Amityville horror was all about a creepy house. The book's setting *was* creepy--but to me, it was creepy more along the lines of Thomas Tryon's Harvest Home or maybe some Shirley Jackson stories. Once I picked the book up, I could NOT put it down--very suspenseful, and I didn't see the ending coming from six miles away (a big pet peeve I have with some books.) I highly recommend this book.

The only drawback for me in reading this book was that I read a library copy, instead of getting it on my Kindle. It's set in England, and I would've liked to have been able to use the built-in dictionary and Wikipedia to look up slang terms, get more info about the setting. (I don't know all the parts of a church--what's a nave, what's the chancel? I don't know brambles from nettles. I wanted to see a picture of the moors--are they like our prairies?) None of this got in the way of reading the book--I just would've liked to have that extra layer of understanding.

Highly recommend this book--I'll be looking for S.J. Bolton's other books, that's for sure!

Suspenseful, creepy, and atmospheric 16. Juni 2011
Von Z Hayes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I've been a fan of S.J. Bolton's writing since reading Sacrifice a while ago. Blood Harvest is my second read after Sacrifice, and I found myself deeply engaged with the storyline. This is a highly atmospheric read, set against the backdrop of a sleepy Lancashire hamlet on the moors. The main building in this story is an old church which has been closed for ten years. Into this setting steps a young vicar, Harry, who is eager to assume his responsibilities for the parish, but instead finds himself steeped in a quagmire of a mystery when bad weather leads to the discovery of two young children's bodies. This scene forms the beginning of the story and readers are then taken via flashback to events of the preceding months.

The key characters in the story are the Fletcher family (dad Gareth, mom Alice, and children Tom, Joe, and Millie), psychiatrist Evi, vicar Harry, a troubled young woman named Gillian, and a powerful local family (the Renshaws). Something or someone is stalking the little girls of this sleepy English village, but instead of resorting to sensationalistic writing full of gore and sordid details, the author credibly evokes an atmosphere full of menace and hidden secrets to tell her story. The suspense is palpable, and though I pride myself on being able to figure out who (or what) is behind a crime, I confess I was stumped here. There are many possible suspects but it is to the author's credit that the suspense and mystery is maintained almost towards the end.

To me, a good suspense novel has a high element of atmosphere, and this story is brimming with it. There is a sense of the Gothic in the descriptions of the old church, the crypt, the graveyard, and even the old traditions observed by the villagers. Though I love mysteries, I am not too keen on the gore and lurid details found in some police procedurals, and prefer atmosphere and psychological insights in my mysteries (which is why I favor writers like Karin Fossum, Johan Theorin, and Erin Hart). Blood Harvest will appeal to fans of atmospheric and suspenseful police procedurals.

Scared me, yet I couldn't put it down 24. Februar 2011
Von Misha - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
" It had happened, then; what only hindsight could have told him he'd been dreading. It was almost a relief in a way, knowing the worst was over, that he didn't have to pretend any more. Maybe now he could stop acting like this was an ordinary town, that these were normal people. Harry took a deep breath, and learned that death smells of drains, of damp soil and of heavy-duty plastic."

The cover itself guaranteed a spooky , unputdownable read. Blood Harvest stole my sleep for three nights in a row! It was extremely creepy and disturbing, yet I was glued to the book.

The Fletchers build a new home in Heptonclough, a small isolated village. Their home happens to be near a recently re-opened church and a cemetery. Alice and Gareth Fletcher along with their children - Tom, ten years old, Joe, six years old and Millie, two years old - seem to have a perfect start to a new life in a new place. However, what seems like a potential idyllic life soon turns out to be a nightmare. Tom has a feeling that they are being watched. He sees a child watching them continuously. He hears her voice and feels her eyes watching them, but no one else seems to understand or care. His parents think he's going crazy. Tom is terrified and he knows something terrible lurks beyond his house; soon, even his home is no longer safe from those watching eyes. There's something menacing out there and he seems to be the only one aware of it.

"For a moment, Tom couldn't remember where the vestry was. He turned and stopped dead. Blinked and looked again. Nothing there. But for a second he'd been sure. To one side of the organ, her thin body pressed against the pipes, someone had been watching them. A little girl. "

Harry Laycock, the new and very "modern" minister for the Church develops an attachment to the Fletcher family. He is also deeply disturbed by the strange rituals followed by the people of the village. Then there's Evi, a psychiatrist and Gilian, a broken woman who refuses to believe her daughter is dead. There starts to emerge a pattern. There have been too many deaths of little girls, all of them dead in a similar manner. Accident? Coincidence? Or is there something more terrifying and much more darker at work?

Blood Harvest is as riveting as the author's previous novels. Page after page, the suspense unfolds, pulling you in deeper until you are almost frantic to reach the end fast and find out what happens ultimately. S.J Bolton manages to keep a high level of tension throughout the book. The book is packed with a set of colourful and eccentric characters and an atmospheric gothic setting. Vivid descriptions of the moor, the Church and the cemetery add to the eerie atmosphere of the book. The description of the mysterious girl in the shadows had me looking behind my back in terror. I could almost feel some strange eyes watching me.

"Was there something just outside the car? Something scraping softly against the paintwork? Tom held his breath. There was. Something was moving around outside. He could hear it. He could almost feel the vehicle rocking. Without daring to move his head, he glanced at the door. Still locked. No one could open it without the key. Could they?"

The author builds up the suspense chapter after chapter. The malevolence, the evil that is lurking in the background becomes more and more obvious. It scares you, yet entices you. The level of terror I felt increased with each page, terror at what I might discover.

Blood Harvest is an excellent psychological thriller. Period. I had my eyes wide open in horror as I reached the end. No, I am not exaggerating. I nearly had a panic attack while reading the book! It's a thrilling read that guarantees to give you chills.

The ending was very disturbing, more than I had imagined. This is a very dark book. So if you are looking for a light read, this is definitely not the right book for you. I was still disturbed, even hours after I had finished reading the book. S.J Bolton knows how to spin a story that continues to haunt the reader. Blood Harvest is a satisfying read for lovers of gothic suspense.

Overall:
Scary and thrilling. Another page-turner from S.J. Bolton.

Recommended?
Yes, if you love a good gothic or psychological suspense novel.
