Kurzbeschreibung

"Every new book by Glen Krisch is a reason to celebrate. Seeming to come from out of nowhere, he writes with the kind of assured, lyrical style that makes other writers salivate. Count me as one of them. He knows what makes a story tick. He knows the value of character. And he knows how to scare you. And he does it all like someone who has been writing since before King was King. Mark my words: The future for Krisch is going to be a bright one, and I'm hard-pressed to think of anyone who so completely deserves it." -- Kealan Patrick Burke, author of The Turtle Boy and Kin.


Summer, 1934. Two boys, searching for a local legend, stumble upon the Underground, a network of uncharted caverns. Time holds no sway there; people no longer age and their wounds heal as if by magic.

By morning, one boy is murdered, while the other never returns. Below a town ravaged by the Great Depression, an immortal society thrives, built on the backs of slavery and pervasive immorality.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A really good read 3. Juni 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have to admit that I love this book! I've read it during a night and it is really entertaining. The plot twists and turns are great. I love all the vivid and well-created characters, especially Ellie and Cooper. I can just imagine that this book would be a great movie. A must-read for all horror or Stephen King fans!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Really good work, very enjoyable horror story 5. Oktober 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I haven't read much in this genre besides a few Clive Barker books, but I definitely enjoyed reading this one, so much so that I had to finish it within a couple of days. There are several layers of secrets about the town and its inhabitants that will keep your interest going until the end. I think having the story take place in the 1930s and with flashbacks even further back in time was bold, but well executed and tied well with the story. I feel I got a real taste of both the place and the era, even though I'm from Europe and I've hardly spent any time in the Midwest.

Minor spoiler: I am unsure whether the use of the supernatural "above ground" benefited or hurt the story, but in some cases it might have been unnecessary. Personally, I would also have preferred a different ending, an ending that would match the darkness and cruelness of the underground. Finally, there were a couple of minor loose ends/questions left unanswered, but nothing serious enough to detract from the book as a whole.

All in all, very good work and highly recommended especially for genre fans.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Complex and satisfying dark fiction 28. November 2011
Von Chris McCaffrey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I purchased the Twice as Dark e-book, which also includes the novel The Nightmare Within, but I really didn't want to wait til I finished the second novel before writing a review of Where Darkness Dwells.

This book is certainly aptly titled because it is a very dark story. And it is clear that the darkness of which Krisch writes has many dwelling places, including the human heart. Beneath the surface of Coal Hollow there lie two undergrounds. One is the Underground Railroad which transported slaves to freedom. The other Underground leads to eternal imprisonment and damnation while giving a mockery of paradise and eternal life.

Yes, it is a story of contrasts. Light (sunlight) and darkness; good and evil, hope and despair, the living and the undead, religion and myth. It is a novel where sometimes redemption is only achieved through the ultimate of sacrifices. Where eternal life is a curse and liberation can only be sought through death. Where evil and good live on and continue to battle beyond death.

The people of Coal Hollow are complex. They are flawed. They are weak, afraid, or simply vain and selfish, and yet in spite of this are also capable of supreme sacrifice and heroism. There are touching (and heartbreaking) scenes in which goodness shines through in the darkest of places in this novel. Choices are made: some refuse to be tempted and flee while others take up arms against the evil that emerges from the Underground to drag the living down to Hell. Yet no character's action is without cost.

This is a very dark,and ultimately heroic and redemptive novel that escapes the nihilism that tales of this type often fall prey to. And it is not soon forgotten. A scene of a child searching for a home, a scene of young parents sacrificing all for their baby, and a scene of eternal suffering and damnation that would chill Dante himself run through your imagination long after the last page is turned.

Yeah, I probably need to read a book about puppies right now; but I will remember this book for a long time and will be reading more by Glen Kirsch, both now, and I am sure through the years.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Wild Ride! 25. September 2011
Von Darcia Helle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book has so many layers that it's difficult to sum up my thoughts in a couple of paragraphs. Enthralling, is a good word to start with. We're introduced to handful of characters at the start that, on the surface, don't seem connected. But it doesn't feel disjointed at all. The characters are unique and each of their stories captivating on its own. As the book moves along, we find the connections. The plot unfolds with intensity, moving more quickly with each page.

While this book is definitely suspense, paranormal and horror at its best, beneath it all is something else entirely. Set in the 1930s, we see the prejudice of the era and the difficulties of life back then. We explore the quest for immortality and the extremes people will go to live forever. We look at fate and hope and trust in the face of misery.

Glen Krisch handles this all with ease, weaving the characters and stories together in unexpected ways that had me forcing my eyes open so I could continue reading. This is an excellent book and Krisch is an author to watch.

5.0 von 5 Sternen WOW 1. September 2011
Von Jolly Roger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was awesome! I was drawn in as the two young boys started off their adventure that went wrong and couldn't put the book down after that! I was captivated by how the story unfolded mixing the history with the present and why things turned out as they did. The author's talent for telling stories is not only evident but great!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Some good ideas...but very slow...2.5 stars. 30. August 2012
Von Matthew Schiariti - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I thought the ideas in this book were pretty good. You have a little zombie type action, some ghost elements, some pretty sinister villains with some twisted motivations, all wrapped up in a depression era novel with quasi fountain of youth element thrown in for good measure.

The problem was, I found the pacing to be very slow and the book seemed to be overly verbose and some of the characters just seemed to be throwaways.

A drifter named Cooper wanders into the town of Coal Hollow. As with most small towns, people are pretty wary of him at first. When two boys go missing, one eventually found dead, the finger points to him for a time. While searching for the young boys, Cooper will become a greater part of the community. Unfortunately, he doesn't know that the community has a dark secret right under its feet (the Underground) and, with the revelation of its secrets, Cooper has to come to terms with some of his own.

As I said, a pretty good premise but there seems to be an abundance of characters thrown in the beginning of the story that have little or nothing to do with the plot. Some of those characters know about the deep dark secret of the Underground while others don't. There's never an explanation for who knows what and for what reasons. Also, the nature of The Underground is never really explained. It's just kind of 'there'.

As I said, the book is a little on the long side. Sometimes it gets bogged down in description. This happens in the middle of dialogue sometimes and it takes away from the flow and interaction between characters.

I will say that there are some well described gory/horror moments in the book. Krisch is a very good descriptive writer and it shows in his horror scenes. Will you lose sleep over what you read here? I don't think so. I've yet to read a book that has actually 'scared' me but some of the imagery is satisfyingly disturbing.

One of the high points is the end of the book. The epilogue was done very well.

In the end, I think the book falls into the 'okay' category. This is by no means a knock at the author (I know how negative reviews can be interpreted as 'beating up on the author'). Those aren't my intentions.

I've seen how many 4 and 5 star reviews this book's gotten (not to mention praise for the author by Scott Nicholson, one of my favorites) but I guess this goes to show that you just can't please everyone. Maybe one of his other books would be more to my liking. In any event, this one didn't really strike a chord with me.

I thought this book was well put together. Intense story line and creepy! Characters were lovable and some you just despised. I would recommend to every horror fan for a fast paced, edge of your seat, fun and enjoyable read.
