    I love spending my free time surrounded by books lucky me I had two days of nonstop reading last weekend After finishing four books I had just enough energy to slip this novella into the mix for a nice weekend wrap up Whisper Lake was my first Melzer read but after a taste I’m curious to see what else this guy can come up with It was pretty short which I actually liked and the writing was crisp and to the point with just enough humor thrown in to make this realistic versus delivering me a bunch of teenagers ready for the butchers block The story starts of right away four teens on the verge of adulthood are cruising through the woods on a short trip to their friend’s cabin in order to help with clean up for new potential buyers Trevor Sarah Amy and Kincaid have all the necessities; cleaning supplies and party supplies as well in forms of beer and smokes Serenity is broken when they finally get to the cabin only to discover a gristly scene their grandmother passed away so they didn’t expect any signs of life but the disarray alone with bodies of dismembered animals throw them into a loop Once the shock passes they decide to throw out all the icky bits and get down to cleaning eerie how that comes back to haunt them later Just when they think that stuff is under control terror strikes them someone or something is out there observing their every move and it won’t leave until the cabin is restored to its former bloody glory Even though I’m a horror lover I was surprised with the author’s ease when it came to hacking away at his characters it was pretty awesome even though I had high hopes for a high survival rate oh well can’t have it all P This is freaky gutsy and merciless and certainly an entertaining way to spend a Sunday not to mention how conductive lake wood and island places are to a good scary story great stuff Kasia S

    Whisper Lake by James Melzer is a story that follows the usual serial slasher formulaFirst ParagraphTrevor reached out his hand and turned down the stereo in the minivan He cocked an eyebrow at his girlfriend Sarah sitting next to him in the passenger seat Wait are you seriously telling me that women are better drivers than men? Seriously?PLOTAs with pretty much all slasher stories a group of teens in this case four drive out to the middle of nowhere preferably surrounded by forests and non existant cell phone coverage and find their fun times getting wasted and high are interrupted by a psycho in said forest They scream they cry they argue they die Age old formula that anyone familiar with the genre will recognise and predict The characters the plot the psycho All filling out the moulds that countless others have used in the past The characters themselves even lampshade it stating how cliche the script is with one of them uipping There's no killer on the loose idiot Which of course is a death sentence in this genre Trevor is travelling down to his grandmother's cabin with his girlfriend Sarah and best friend Kincaid along with his girlfriend Amy The four have been good friends for years and they're planning one last 'hoorah' before heading off to college in the Fall His grandmother passed away three months ago and his parents have asked him to clean her cabin up and get it presentable to sell So off they go to the isolated cabin on Whisper Lake When they get there they find the lights already on and the front door open They decide to inspect the place and find gutted animal carcasses in the kitchen Fresh ones Along with an armoury worth of hunting weapons Though spooked they decide to stay anyway believing it was probably just a suatter and the two men get to work cleaning up the kitchen which includes removing the carcass of a stag There's obvious evidence that someone has been living in the cabin and recently but if they did the sensible thing and left there would be no story Their reasoning is that with all the weapons in the kitchen even if someone comes back they could defend themselves Switch to obligatory psycho POV as he watches from afar He'll give them this last night before he descendsREVIEWYou know what to expect Sex gore etc All the usual elements that make up teen slasher stories Though that doesn't make them any less enjoyable For the most part it's fairly predictable but I was surprised by a couple things The POV switches a few times to either killer POV victim POV or random POV in the manner of slasher flicks It's unusual to see thrillerhorror this short but it works well for what it is It also means that the pace is very fast You have four teens one killer and less than a hundred pages Though having said that I would've liked it to be just a little longer so that it was drawn out and the tension can build further What works so well in this genre is the fear the not knowing the helplessness and adding a little of that is never a bad thing It starts off strong but loses momentum towards the end The ending was the only thing I really have criticisms for it gets a little off track and just happens Not in a sudden stop kind of way but in an ambling it's just over kind of way One of the group is never accounted for I can only assume what happened to them The villain is suitably phantom of the opera esue mixed in with a little Jason for good measure A tormented insane man who doesn't really need a reason to kill you but God help you if you give him one OVERALLAn entertaining uick read which fans of the genre are sure to enjoyDisclaimer I received this book from the author This is not a sponsored review All opinions are 100% my own

    Ok so I'm assuming that the author wrote this as a joke or maybe to win a bet I'm really hoping this wasn't meant as a serious writing endeavor The blurb says In the tradition of 80’s slasher films and old school horror Well yes but not in a good way Not in a way that says Hey let's all laugh together at the stupid teenagers in the lakeside cabin being killed by a psycho More in a way that says I want to be clever but I'm coming off incompetent Basic plot teenagers who are into alcohol and pot go to the lake to clean up their grandmother's cabin so it can be sold While there they plan to do everything they shouldn't do and so a madman kills them I don't think I spoiled anyone with that synopsis I'm just going to uote a few lines and then I'll let this one gowatching her friend Sarah die was enough of a shock to bring her back to reality and say 'Hey I better do something or else I'm going to end up like her'Yeah her boyfriend had just been murdered and that was hard to deal with but for crying out loud they were all fighting for their lives nowHis entire face looked like melted cheese clinging to a piece of bread with breaks in the skin that made him think of pepperoni pizzaOk enough I'm going with the idea that this was written as a jokeThis was given to me by the author in exchange for a review through the librarything member giveaway

    A mish mash of horror tropes The isolated location a group of teenagers bent on partying a disturbed individual the killer roaming the areaA group of teens arrive at an isolated lakeside cabin to clean it up and ready it for sale The cabin belongs to one of the boys' dead grandmother When they arrive they discover someone has been living in and making a mess of the cabin There's the inevitable fight amongst the teenagers and one of the boys goes stomping out into the darkness Of course he is the first to die The remaining teens decide to make a break for it only to realize that their vehicle has been disabled by the killerOne of the girls dies in a terrible conflux of events as she's trying to call for help on her cell phone Her boyfriend the grandson of the cabin's owner goes out to confront the murderous madman only to get himself killed The lone girl left tricks the killer stabs him in the neck then sets him on fire She escapes and presumably summons the authorities A year later the family who owned the cabin and whose son died there finally sell the property However it is implied by the ending that the killer survived the fire that consumed the cabinHonestly the whole thing was a bit too Friday the 13th for me And it wasn't the least bit scary The only surprising thing in the whole story was that the grandmother was having an affair with the killer before he went crazy

    Amazing Novella If you enjoy creepy frightening stories This is a book for youI love love loved it Not a single complaint until I got to the endIn which; first I don't understand the end Second I feel it's lacking information What happened to not going to say who what happened with the investigation Does anyone know the truth? I got no closure what so everBut still even knowing all this now IWould I read the book Loved it Highly recommend it

    A very good short horror story Flowed really nicely and was a uick read Four kids go to clean out acabin that belonged to one of their grandparents so it could be sold When the kids arrive they find something else I thought the author could have detailed better where the man came from but I still enjoyed it

    Spooky but predicableWhisper Lake is a book about a group of teenagers who go to clean out a pasted away grandmother’s cabin They end up finding out that the grandmother had a little secret all her own This book wasn’t too bad it was just to predicable for me It was easy for me to see where this book was heading pretty early in
