"Thorn is the new, fresh face in horror and dark fantasy."
JA Konrath (aka Jack Kilborn)


"J. doesn't mess around, he jumps right into the action and delivers an inventive blend of genres."
Scott Nicholson, bestselling author of the AFTER series


"Thorn brings an intelligence and thoughtfulness to horror. Someone who treats the genre, and its readers, with the respect they deserve."
David Wright, co-author of the bestselling horror and sci-fi Yesterday's Gone series

FANS OF DARK FANTASY -˃ THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END!

***WARNING*** The Seventh Seal is the J. Thorn version of Sons of Anarchy meets Die Hard with a radical Christian as the bad guy. It is a fast-paced, dark fantasy thriller full of violence, intended for mature audiences only. In addition, please do not purchase The Seventh Seal if you are a religious person and find a story with violence committed by members of the Catholic Church offensive. The Seventh Seal requires the same suspension of belief as a zombie apocalypse tale or a story about sparkly vampires.

Praise for The Seventh Seal...
"I think folks who enjoy apocalyptic fiction will like this story. It's intense, it's not pretty, and it was a good story. Definitely check it out."
K. Sozaeva, Amazon Vine Voice, Top 500 Reviewer

"What if the morning after was also the End of the World? That's what happens to J. Thorn's protagonist in this edgy take on the End of Days. What emerges is an edge-of-your seat apocalyptic adventure full of twists and turns. I couldn't put it down! This is an edgy book, however, and not without controversy. If you don't like your religion or your world view to be challenged, then proceed with caution!"
Vicki Keire, Author of Worlds Burn Through

Overview:

John Burgoyne awakens from a Halloween party, with a hangover and a dead cell phone, on the first day of the End of Days. He's desperate, on the run, and fighting for his life. After a violent coup, the Father, the figurehead of the Holy Covenant and the commander of a new military order, pursues John through the post-apocalyptic wreckage of Cleveland, Ohio, in search of the hidden knowledge he believes John holds. Burgoyne escapes and aligns with the resistance until Father orchestrates a final showdown.

Any fan of "Mad Max", Cormac McCarthy, or David J. Moody will love The Seventh Seal!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Terrible! Bad writing, erratic storyline...not worth finishing. 17. März 2012
Von Mom of 3 Voracious Readers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I can't give a thorough summary for this book because it was so bad I couldn't finish it.

The first page was so awful, I almost stopped right there. "John's cell phone slid out of his pocket and hit the cement floor. It broke open with a pang of guilt and rolled to a stop with forgotten loyalty."

Huh? Guilty, disloyal phone? Rolling? I really love post-apocalyptic books, so I forced myself to read a more. Nope. Couldn't finish it. I skimmed through and read enough parts to figure out the story.

Guy passes out during sex. Wakes up to find the world has changed. No t.v. and people are shot or missing. Turns out "religious" group has decided to kill off the infidels (including children) and paints pentagrams on the infidel doors. Lucky for John, he was wearing a priest costume when he passed out so that buys him some time with the new regime since they immediately assume he's some saint. There are survivors here and there, including his wife (not the one he was doing while wearing the priest costume...but he was drugged and the only reason anyone knows about the sex is because the woman took cell phone pics and sent them to his wife to cause trouble...he didn't enjoy it, really!) (Again, this is not a thorough summary...at no point did any of this ever capture my attention enough to convince me to read the entire book.)

I have absolutely no idea why there are so many good reviews for this book. I notice the good reviews are only up until the book was offered free. Every review since the book was free has given it 1-2 stars, and then a few people marking off that the bad review is helpful and a whole bunch of people saying they disagree with the review. What does that tell me? It tells me that the author or publisher has a huge friend base.

This book is not worth the price I paid. (Free.) I feel only slightly bad to give a bad review. I mean, it was free, right? Spend your time searching for some of the other free Kindle reads out there. There are some real gems.

1.0 von 5 Sternen I read with an open mind... 22. Dezember 2012
Von alicia livingston - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a fan of post-apocalyptic fiction so I decided to read this book with an open mind, despite the warnings. It was boring for a start. I had a hard time continuing to read it. The writing seemed amateurish. The plot holes and lack of back story made everything confusing. There was nothing to make me like any of the characters in the story. Conversations seemed unnatural and it felt like characters used foul language just because. As for the religious aspect, the author seems angry at the Catholic Church. He has a very limited understanding of anything about the Bible or Christianity. Maybe a little research would have helped. The ending was very disappointing. Don't waste your time.

The premise behind the book was good (religious fanatics killing off all the "infidels"), but a lot of his metaphors and figures of speech were stupid. But I still enjoyed it quite a bit.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Put away the thesaurus 15. Mai 2013
Von Don Cranford - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
THE SEVENTH SEAL is a good example of the overuse of adjectives, adverbs and descriptive writing.

The use of descriptive writing sets the mood, but when it is used excessively in every sentence, it stilts the plot and makes scenes unclear. In one scene the author writes "...John's vision came into focus. The black cape of a vampire fanned out across the floor with a pool of dark liquid shimmering under his chest." Where did a vampire come from? John knew there was a Halloween party (however the reader does not know), why not just say it? It made me stop and look back to see what I had missed. We find out later these are costumes.

The paragraph continues with "The hardy flies that survived the bitter day buzzed above the corpse." Seriously? John discovers a dead body and this went through his mind?

And it continues "The Bee Lady slumped..." The Bee Lady? Who is that? Where did she come from? Is she a vampire too? "Mascara ran down her face and smudges of black lipstick caressed her chin." A supoosedly dead body (we are to assume from the dead vampire that she is dead) has lipstick that is caressing her? "Three ragged holes desecrated her chest." Okay, now I guess she's supposed to be dead. Desecratedly dead.

John walks into a bedroom. Mind you he has been unconcious in the basement for three days. He get upstairs, steps over some dead partygoers and raids the refrigerator and eats a ham. Then cooks some beans and eats those. Meanwhile "The stove rattled and popped, following the lead of the house in attempting to expel the intruder." The House was expelling him? He's an intruder now? I thought he was part of the party from three days ago.

So John eats and NOW he searches the house (I guess he was afraid of being expelled).
..."The faces of others sunk in sickening pools of life's essence." Did you mean they were facedown in blood?
"Black holes crawled down from the ceiling to the wall and escaped by shattering the two windows overlooking South Belvoir Road." What? What?
"John recognized the growl of an internal combustion chamber."

John is running from some Army guys, a "blinding beam of light cut through the sheer curtains..." John dives for the floor. In the next paragraph he climbs into a bed and goes to sleep. Okay, maybe he does. He doesn't seem too concerned over a houseful of dead friends. Maybe he can sleep with dudes just outside the window.

I think that is enough to show how slow the plot runs and how indifferent the first character we meet seems to act. The book reads like someone wrote it then went back and added everything they could think of to try and impress the reader with the author's literary knowledge and skill. Unfortunately, J. Thorn fails in the worst way and makes the same mistakes one would expect from a high school student. Thorn makes the plot plodding, confusing, and boring.

I love a descriptive novel. However, the use of description must be judicious and in the proper place. There is nothing wrong with setting a scene, but then stop it! Move the story along and put away the thesaurus!

I recommend this book only as an example of how not to write.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Children's Book Gone Wrong 28. April 2012
Von Eldon J. Stracke II - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Apart from the hopelessly inconsistent prose, the thing that makes this work the most unreadable is the sheer inaccuracy of Every Single Thing:

Treating a wound with triage? (Apparently the author decided to randomly drop in medical words that sounded cool without bothering to look up their definitions) Hospitals that disinfect with poisonous methanol? (the nurse compared the smell windshield washer fluid to antiseptic; the methanol in washer fluid smells *nothing* like Isopropyl Alcohol )

M-16 machine guns? (Even if they weren't rifles, they haven't even been able to fire fully automatic since the end of the Vietnam war)

The modern US Army using jeeps? (which haven't been in service for 50 years)

People carrying a "Thirty odd six"? (that's just too funny... it's like asking a child what kind of gun his daddy uses)

Starting a HUMVEE with a key? (difficult, as they do not have key ignitions)

Next, we have our protagonist; a web designer that can operate and identify by sound military equipment (e.g., identifying a tank by sound and knowing a helicopter is military just by hearing it, operating an M-16 rifle, starting a HUMVEE and turning on its headlights, etc). Followed by an emergency R.N. that regains consciousness after a sudden and violent assault and inexplicable decides to flee the area without bothering to check on a single victim or call for and kind of help. She compiles an "essentials " pack with hair brush, deodorant and underwear... but no gauze, tape, antiseptics, antibiotics or pain meds... despite her still-bleeding wound and the extreme likelihood of encountering others in need (I mention this oddity because every character is instantly aware of the exact situation they are in whenever it conveniently applies to advancing the insipid plot). She then seeks refuge at a gas station awash in spilled gasoline... and she is one of the smarter characters.

It seems that every page was written by someone with no world knowledge at all apart from bad comic books and old B-movies; which wouldn't be quite so bad if Google weren't so staggeringly simple to use. Don't be fooled by the attempts to make this book appear religiously controversial... it is merely a gimmick to encourage sales.
