Produktbeschreibungen

Kurzbeschreibung

It was supposed to be a fresh start. A place for Steve & Melody Samson to begin their new life together away from the noise and crime of the city. However, their new home – an idyllic cottage nestled deep within the dense solitude of Oakwell forest-has a disturbing history, hidden for generations by the locals. There is evil in Hope House, and the cursed forest that surrounds it. Evil that has awakened after lying dormant for decades, and has terrifying plans for the young couple.

Once you hear the whispers, it may already be too late.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Michael Bray is a Horror author based in Leeds, England. Influenced from an early age by the suspense horror of authors such as Stephen King, and the trashy pulp TV shows like Tales From The Crypt & The Twilight Zone, he started to work on his own fiction, and spent many years developing his style. After completing his debut novel in May 2012, he signed a deal with the highly reputable Dark Hall Press to print and distribute the book, which was released in September 2012.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Der Erste Teil einer Trilogie... 21. Juni 2014
Von Tebasile
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
...und ich werde ganz sicher die Fortsetzung lesen.

Michael Bray hat hier ein spannendes und unterhaltsames Buch geschrieben. Der Plot ist dicht gewebt und sowohl Handlung als auch Sprache sind auf hohem Niveau angesiedelt. Wer Stephen King mag sollte unbedingt mal Bray lesen! Verschiedene gruselige Elemente, wie auch King sie verwendet, sind hier zu einer packenden Geschichte verwoben. (vgl. "The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer", vielleicht ein bisschen "Pet Sematary" u.ä.)

Fazit: Leser des Grusel-Genres: LESEN!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spannend 9. Mai 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Dieses Buch hat alles, was ein gutes Horrorbuch braucht. Der Ort, an dem all dies passiert ist einsam gelegen, die beiden Hauptcharaktere unbedarft. Sie fühlen sich von der Gegend sehr angezogen und tun Dinge, die sie vielleicht sonst so nicht tun würden. Und während sie in ihr Unglück rennen, sind da noch all die Dorfbewohner, die von diesem Ort wissen und sich dennoch nicht um die fremden kümmern... bis sie Hilfe suchen. Aber da ist es vielleicht schon zu spät....
Ein wahres Lesevergnügen. Das einzige, was ich bemängeln muss, ist, dass man noch nicht genug über die Vergangenheit erfährt, dass nicht genug aufgeklärt wird, warum, wieso, weshalb. Aber da es sich um das erste Buch einer Trilogie handelt, bleibt zu hoffen, dass sich das in den weiteren Teilen aufklärt. Ich jedenfalls werde sie lesen!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Read. 22. April 2013
Von Marianne Spitzer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
**Disclaimer: I received a free copy of Whisper for review. This did not, in any way, affect my review of the book or Mr. Bray's writing.
The book opens with a terrified child running through the woods. It immediately grabs you and pulls you into the story. Although the story does weave through the past and present, each section flows seamlessly into the next. There aren't any jerky time changes, and each change makes sense pulling you into the next scene. It kept me wanting to continue reading to know how the story was playing out in both the past and present. All of the characters are well developed. Their descriptions are detailed and believable. They could be people you know or see on the street each day. Their dialogue is what you would expect, and reflects their individual character.
The plot was intriguing. A young married couple buying their dream house. That dream began to unwind when the stepped through the door. This may sound familiar, but don't let that fool you. Mr. Bray has found a new road to terror. He builds his story from several angles, each one frightening on its own. When he combines them, you will find yourself wrapped in a story you will not soon forget. From beginning to end, the plot moves forward. At times it's fast to pull you quickly into the terror that is building, and at others slowly to allow you to take in all the details around the characters and their situation.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a scary read with many twists and turns. I enjoyed it and give it 5 stars. I like Mr. Bray's style and it was well written.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow what a read 8. Mai 2013
Von Sylv - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow! What more can I say?

I thought that I would use the Easter Holiday to start reading Whisper, I began to read mainly at night knowing I wouldn't have to get up early the next day but it also extended to during the day.

I struggled!

Struggled to put it down.

Whisper, by Michael Bray, is a must read for any horror/supernatural fan out there.

From start to finish, (especially the finish) you wont be disappointed. It has everything from the nice couple Steve and Melody, to the sleazy Donovan, to last but not least, the forces. Whilst reading you just can't imagine how it will end, there are some real surprises within the book too. Not going to tell you, you just have to go and get your own copy

Michael has a way with words, his writing is right up with the Stephen King and Dean Koontz books, the cliffhangers between each chapter, will keep you reading to find out what is going to happen, not just the next chapter but the chapter after that.

I was left alone during the day for an hour while I was finishing off the final chapter, I got creeped out, thinking I was being watched {shudder}. Now when I go into the kitchen at night, I wont look out the window thanks Michael no seriously thank you for writing such a chilling and brilliant book.

Do I recommend Whisper? Hmm let me see! Well I can't wait to read more of Michael Bray's books and I suggest you do too

5.0 von 5 Sternen The sort of book that keep you up late! 13. Mai 2013
Von Angellita75 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I must say that Michael Bray has the potential to equal the likes of Stephen King and Richard Laymon. This is the first book of his I have read and I was captured by the suspense right away.
Story wise, without spoiling too much; start with a house in the middle of nowhere, add in a city couple and some freaky goings on and you've got yourself a cocktail of horror and thrills. Very well written, with plenty of description that enables you to visualise the settings, this book will make a great film or tv series.
His use of flashbacks was impressive and leaves you in suspense waiting to see the roots of the story. Often in books with flashback the story becomes muddied and the plot wanders but Michael kept everything to the point, not allowing himself to drag out the story for a bigger page number and he kept the scenarios separate enough that you wont become lost as to where or when you are.
The only downfall for me is merely my downfall as a reader, as my imagination is pretty poor, having spent a long time reading textbooks. His description of the main characters is minimal if not non-existent. Unfortunately as I don't even know anyone with the names I found it hard to associate a face to the characters which was a pain.
But it still only took me a couple of days to read this, including a couple of past midnight readings much to my brains disgust.
This book will envelop you into a world of thrill and curiosity, leaving you wanting more. I know I certainly cant wait for Michaels next book!

3.0 von 5 Sternen can't beat the atmosphere 4. Oktober 2013
Von J. Gunnar Grey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a full-length horror novel with plenty of good ideas and potential, plenty of opportunities to scare me silly, but unfortunately it fell a bit flat for this reader.

Love the mixture of villains, both supernatural (the Gogoku and the cannibalized children) and -- well, you can't call Donovan either mundane or normal, so let's just say non-supernatural. Love the haunted house that messes with your mind, has you seeing and believing things that aren't, that can kill through hypnotizing its prey, or at least I'll call it that for lack of a better term; maybe mind control? Anyways, it's a great combo of imaginative ideas, and the way they're layered into the story is appealing.

There are at least two approaches to building horror and suspense: keeping the reader guessing through strange happenings without explanations; and giving the reader all info up front and letting her watch with horror as the various elements interact. Author Michael Bray chose the latter course, letting us know we're dealing with a curse in the prologue and showing it in operation with several early flashback chapters. I can't help thinking he'd have achieved more of his goal with the former option. Some guessing here could have been powerful.

As the book stands, being told the characters are feeling uneasy and listening to them argue about how they feel didn't engage me. Characters behaved inconsistently, one scene believing the house to be cursed, the next saying there had to be a rational explanation. The male lead, Steven, only bought the house because he loved his wife and would do anything for her, but as the book unfolded, he didn't do several things for her even when she begged, and these were much smaller actions than investing his last penny into a tumble-down historic house he didn't even like. And the female lead, Melody, claimed not to believe, but steadfastly refused to touch the Ouija board. If she didn't believe, why not? To her it should have been only a silly game. She never gave a convincing reason, just a barrage of emotion.

[SPOILER ALERT]
Also, I have serious problems with a character doing Something Stupid to advance the plot. There's a scene where a guy who makes Melody nervous comes calling while she's home alone taking a bath, and she runs downstairs wearing nothing but a towel and throws the door open without first asking who's there. Then she asks the guy to stay for refreshments. I cannot imagine a woman who's lived in NYC all her life doing anything of the sort and the scene brought me to a dead stop, suspension of disbelief gone. Couldn't pick the book back up until the next day, and the enjoyment factor never quite returned.
[END SPOILERS]

Author Bray has a good strong writing style, able to carry the story and build tension within scenes. I'm told he's best known for his horrific short stories and I'll have to check some of those out; the problems I had with this book would likely be avoided in a shorter work. As it stands, we'll call this one three stars and I'm going back for seconds.

Note that I won a copy of this book through the Library Thing Member Giveaway program, in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Impressive Debut Novel by Michael Bray 19. April 2013
Von Bruce J. Blanchard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
A good haunted house story takes talent. Throw in the power and evil of a cursed land. Test the bond of love between a husband and wife knowing both will experience one hell of a strain on their marriage and neither acting like bad characters in a so-so horror film. Michael Bray accomplishes this and much more. Bringing you up to par, Steve and Melody Samson buy Hope House from a local realtor Donovan who is Creepy and filled with an inner rage demanding violence. The nearby town clings tight to its secrets of the unfortunate past residents of Hope House who have met their various ends of murder and suicide. And now, this young couple have entered the front door of a house filled with anything...but hope.
Whisper is Michael Bray's debut novel. He has already earned his stripes in the art of the short story. Whisper takes you on a phantasmagoric ride of fear and terror and battling the forces of evil. The novel is filled with excellent writing, believable characters, and a pace that does not let you down. The past of Hope House will always keep the reader in the loop. And now, one final word of warning: once you hear the whisper calling your name in the wind, you are one step closer to death.
