Things aren’t working out well for writer Patrick Lahm. But his life is about to take a turn for the worse when he stumbles upon Kurtain Motel. Suddenly, everything he fears is being played out in front of him, and he has nowhere to hide…

The Sin Series contains:

  1. Kurtain Motel
  2. Refuge
  3. Purgatory

 

Book 1: Kurtain Motel

Writer Patrick Lahm is running through some bad luck. He is late for a book signing and stranded in the middle of a storm. He hitches a ride to Kurtain Motel, which seems benign enough. But Patrick soon realizes that the tiny motel is not at all what it seems.

 

Book 2: Refuge

The small town of Refuge is the perfect hideaway for Patrick Lahm. The simplicity of life is better than he could have imagined. Finally, things seem to be looking up. But he can only escape from his sins for so long, and soon enough his nightmares become reality.

 

Book 3: Purgatory

Patrick and his associate Jimmy are called back to Connecticut when a notorious serial killer is found dead in the woods, his head impaled on a shovel. The gruesome scene might very well be the break they’ve been hoping for in finding the monster that tore their lives apart. Things go terribly wrong and the evil promises them salvation.  All they have to do is confess.

    I enjoyed this, it was a quick read and I found myself carrying my tablet with me to keep reading while I went about things. The characters are fairly well defined though there was one that I must have missed his introduction as I couldn’t really figure out when/where he had come in. There were a few errors , the most jarring was “clam” instead of “calm”. I’m hoping that in future installments more is explained about what is going on, as it was a little thin in this volume. Overall it was quite good and I’m looking forward to more in this series.

    This is a really good story but it gets a little confusing. There are a lot of characters and a lot going on all at once. I got a little lost trying to remember what name went with what person a couple of times. Kind of like “wait, what, which one is Harold…” and I’d have to go back a couple of pages. The end seemed a little rushed as well. Like the author was only allowed so many words and realized that they better wrap the story up. The story line is awesome though, not what I was thinking. I’m looking forward to reading the next book.

    I am not totally sure what my final opinion is of this book. I enjoyed the story; I wished it was longer so I could see some of the characters better developed as well as see the story unfold at a slower pace. I realized I had more questions than answers when the book ended, which is definitely how to hook someone into the Sin Series.Patrick Lahm is having a tough go of things, running out of gas on the side of the road he hitches a ride with a priest to what he hopes is the nearest gas station. Unfortunately, the weather takes a turn for the worse forcing the pair to check into the remote, rundown Kurtain Motel.The motel is not deserted though; due to the storm the motel has the most guests it has seen in a long time. As the night unfolds the story narration switches between characters, the story moves between each character’s past and present. All characters relieve their sins while someone demands they “Confess”.At times it was a struggle moving so quickly between events and characters trying to keep everyone’s story straight. I confess I lost track of a character or two. I wanted to learn a little more about Patrick. It would have been nice to see the story longer, this would have made it easier to move between narrators and watch the story unfold with a little more detail.Kurtain Motel is a quick and gripping read, plot twists within the story can keep the reader guessing throughout the book. This story is not for those who have fear of spiders, blood or learning someone’s darkest secrets.

    I bought the kindle version of the book and I must say I really enjoy the series. The story continues where it left off at Kurtain Motel, with Patrick Lahm and the Frey family, living their lives, however a beautiful twist to the story that makes it quite suspenseful. I really recommend people to read the series. Good thing I read it a bit late, this way I didn’t have to wait long for the third book to come out 😀

    I throughly enjoyed this book until the end. It was fast paced and hard to put down, but the ending was a complete let down. What hsppened to Harold? How come they got to leave the motel? Who or what was Jimmy and Tara? Why waz patrick special? There were just to many things left that needed answers! I definitely would have rated this book higher if the ending wasn’t so rushed and disjointed! Dont know if i would recommend this book yo others! Very disappointed since it started out so well!

    I feel shortchanged by the ending of this book. You spent so much time building up the characters and then at the end it seems like you just got tired and ended it. What happened when Gina found her mom in the boiler room? Why did the priest kill Diana? You really let me down at the end.

    The Haunted Reading Room

    Review: KURTAIN MOTEL by A. J. NasserI enjoyed this story enormously! As I progressed further and further into it, the more I admired it, and couldn’t wait to read Books 2 and 3. The author has a talent for interspersing horror and a metaphysical theme. Additionally, he knows how to wreak emotional havoc in his characters (and elicit readers’ empathy. Some of these characters really tug our heartstrings, others inspire admiration for their courage and integrity). But everybody’s ending isn’t happy.

    The Haunted Reading Room

    Review: REFUGE by A. I. Nasser(THE SIN #2)In my review of the first in this trilogy, KURTAIN MOTEL, I raved about how enjoyable and imaginative a story it is. REFUGE keeps the bar high. Those of our characters who escaped the Kurtain Motel find asylum and a settled home in Refuge, Maine, a seemingly pleasant small community where everything is just fine. Or is it?? With Rev. Clancy and his constant “confession” harping (he makes Sinclair Lewis’s Reverend Dr. Elmer Gantry look like an angel) and the commencement of unending revelations, protagonist Patrick Lahm and his cohorts remain on the edge of destruction. REFUGE continues the same heart-in-mouth thrill ride of KURTAIN MOTEL.

    Okay, now I’m literally hooked. I went through a few of the reviews here, and din’t get where some of them were coming from. I was actually very impressed with the mix of complicated characters in this story and how they all came together. The ending was incredible! Left me wanting more. I definitely had a few questions, but it’s a series after all, and I’m expecting the next books to satisfy me with answers.I’m totally hooked on Jimmy and Tara. I really want to know what’s going to happen next, and how Harold ends up in this whole thing. There are some characters whose lives ended quite abruptly, and I have a feeling that this won’t be the end of them and we’ll know so much more in the next book.Off to Book 2!

    The book opened quickly diving right into the story. As the reader is introduced to the characters and the Motel it rolls out very much like a movie just enough to let the reader’s imagination do the rest. Creepy old Motel, each patron with a secret. It is a quick read with suspense with a ok ending that leaves the readers with a few questions Tara and Jimmy, the Priest’s secret . Since Jason was the puppet which one was pulling the strings ? A good writer who keeps his readers attention

    Possible minor spoilers⬇I’m honestly not quite sure how I feel about Kurtain Motel. It’s scary, and mysterious. The characters are way out there, but that seems appropriate.It is just very confusing. The prologue doesn’t really seem to be cohesive with the body of the book. I get what the whole “confess” and sin stuff is about. The characters of Tara and Jimmy seem pointless. Other than them being observers, which I would think would also be a sin of sorts.I didn’t really like the way it ended, and get the feeling that in order to get the answers I felt were lacking I’d have to read the next book. I don’t know if I will or not.

    I purchased and read this 3nd in series book in June, and given audiobook in September by Scare Street (THANK YOU) it is so much better to listen too. I love horror and ghosts stories. Loved the characters of Patrick, Jimmy, Jack, Philip and all of the characters from Kurtain Motel and Refuge continue in this book. Patrick and Jimmy are trying to rescue Tara in Purgatory in Darville. Patrick needs to find Jimmy and heads to the Heldon Manor. The epilog hints there could be another series with Philip and Jimmy (hope so). This book was suspenseful, scary, creepy and thrilling better than the Slaughter series.

    Book 3 sees Patrick and Jimmy on the hunt for the evil that took over Jimmy’s mother. Patrick gets a call from a friend to tell them about a serial killer being killed near where he lives, Darville. After the events at the Kurtain Motel in the last book, Patrick is wanted by the police so is trying to keep a low profile, but he has no choice but to go to Darville and investigate.This one is hard to summarise simply because this is book 3 and I would spoil things for both book 2 and this one. So I’ll just say that the plot of this was great. It wraps up a lot of the questions from the other books, plus it’s a lot darker. Poor Patrick is stuck in the cell with the spiders!!! *Shiver* The plot of the overall series is quite complex and twisty, but worth it if you stick with it. I was blown away with parts!!Jimmy and Patrick have their work cut out for them and things come to a head. I was rooting for them the whole way through and was satisfied with the ending!! So in all, a great ending and I need to check out more from this author.Thom Bowers read this well and gave a great performance. He is easy to listen to and brought the story alive.I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

    Patrick, Jimmy and his mom, barely escaped the Kurtain Motel with their lives and went on the run from the Sin eater. They found a tiny town called Refuge, and it seemed perfect for them. But nothing is as it seems and Patrick’s normal life is about to come crashing down again!!Now this was some seriously twisty read. The plot was awesome!!! We start with seeing Patrick having a good life. He is working in the Post Office and life is good, but the priest gives him the creeps and seems to be obsessed with getting people to “confess”. Something about this seems very familiar to Patrick but he isn’t sure what. Meanwhile we get glimpses back into the Kurtain Motel. Initially this is a little confusing but it starts to come together and you find your mind blown. I really didn’t see that coming!!!Again, we have the same characters with others thrown in, but this time it felt like we got more debt to them and got to know them a little better. They were more developed and I was able to become more invested in them. Plus I liked getting to know Jimmy more!! I was also so happy to see Patrick live a good, happy life. He has grown on me and I was rooting for him!!In all, this was an awesome read. I loved the setting and how mysterious and intriguing Refuge and the people were. The twist was great too and I can not wait to see what happens next!!Thom Bowers did a better job with this one because the majority of the story revolves around Patrick and Jimmy. He brought the characters and atmosphere to life and knows how to tell a creepy tale!I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Patrick Lahm is on his way to a book signing when he has some car trouble. Through the storm he makes out lights coming towards him. A priest pulls up and Patrick gets a lift to the nearest town, but the storm is worsening and they decide to stop at the Kurtain Motel for the night. This turns out to be a massive mistake and the night seems never ending.So I quite enjoyed this. While there are a few minor issues, overall it was thoroughly enjoyable. Plot wise, I was intrigued and interested in the whole plot. The setting of the motel was perfect because a creepy motel in a storm will always give you shivers!! Then we have the whole “confess” bit! That was initially confusing but once the story got going I was able to figure somethings out. I also loved the fact that everyone seems to have their own secrets.One problem for me was the sheer number of characters. I found myself a little lost on who was talking at any given time, but it did eventually click for me and I was able to distinguish each one and kinda figure out what their secrets were. I really liked Patrick and am intrigued to find out what his secret is ;)The minor issues for me were the fact that some of the characters weren’t as developed as I would have liked. Also, when the boy came into the story, I thought, from the description, that he was really young, but near the end we find out his age. It just didn’t add up! But as I said, these are minor issues and didn’t detract from the creepiness of the story!!Thom Bowers does a great job of capturing the atmosphere and bringing the book alive, I just found that he didn’t differentiate some of the male characters enough. It took me a while to figure out which character was which. But he does read this well and is clear and concise, so in all, I did enjoy his performance.I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher.

    For the most part, the story was ok. It wasn’t terribly scary, but it kept me reading. The narrator did a good job of differentiating between the various characters, with only a few minor slips. I wish I could give this book a higher rating, but unfortunately, there are massive holes in the story. One character’s sin was never revealed, while three other were never completely explained. The best character in the story was killed “off screen”, while another lost their mind with no explanation given. I even checked the e-book to make sure there wasn’t just a glitch in my audiobook, but sure enough, they matched. I don’t know if it’s laziness or inexperience on the author’s part, but I really hope the rest of the series is better.

    The Eagles, Hotel California is a fitting song for this book. I wouldn’t be surprised if that is kinda where the author A.I. Nasser got the idea. It’s about a small hotel in the middle of nowhere, something is at the motel that is bringing peoples sins alive and haunting the residents until all hell breaks loose in their psyche.Can they figure out what is going on before everyone dies or goes crazy?It’s a pretty good book, I enjoyed reading it. The characters are well balanced and the author does a good job going into their backgrounds enough for you to know what is going on with them. I only found one spelling mistake where “would” was used instead of “wouldn’t”. Other than that the story was gripping, and kept me enthralled throughout the entire novel.However, it almost seemed to me like the author had intended to end the book and was heading towards a definite ending, but then was told or realized that it could be stretched out into more books. I had a inkling about who/what was behind the situation, but at the very end a lame “ending” ruined that possibility branching the story off in a another direction for a open ending instead which didn’t really make sense. I don’t know, maybe in the next book it makes more sense about what happened, but as of now it appears stretched out on purpose.

    Despite some distracting mistakes in word usage, I admit that this book was a page-turner for me. The writing is dark and psychological, but suffers from some holes in the plot. The whole book would have been more satisfying if each character’s “sin” had been explained, as well as better detailing each death. Introducing several characters and then having them die outside of the action of the story doesn’t sit well. I would have liked to have seen a final ending to this book, as well. I understand that series writing is all the rage, but a more solid ending would have served this book better. The story needs some work, but still worth the read due to the unique plot.

    CONFESS!!! Okay, I confess, I like this series. Imagine your worst indiscretions or crimes come back to haunt your reality and force you to confess or be cast into an unimaginable horror. This is the fate that befalls a group of unfortunates who check into the ill-fated Kurtain Motel on a stormy night. Time stops at midnight and every “guest” is visited by the incarnation of his or her past misdoings. Needless to say, evil ensues and the scares begin.I was gifted the Audio.com version of this book. It is narrated by Tom Bowers, the same gentleman who narrates the Berkley Street series. His narration adds a whole new dimension to the story by his excellent characterizations. If you enjoyed the Berkley Street series, give this one a try. You won’t be disappointed.

    I received this book as a gift from the publisher (Audiobook edition).Refuge is the second of three books in The Sin series and continues the story from Kurtain Motel. Patrick Lahm manages to escape from the Kurtain Motel and finds himself in the Town of Refuge. While he believes he is free and clear of the horrors he left behind, things begin to go south for him. He sees people in town that he clearly remembers seeing being killed at the motel. A hellfire and brimstone preacher in town has more power than he should have. Things just don’t add up.Along with Jimmy Frey, who also escaped the motel with his mother (or so we are led to believe), Patrick seeks answers and a way to escape from Refuge. As the story progresses, more secrets are revealed and we are soon taken on a wild ride with Patrick and Jimmy as they attempt their escape.I strongly suggest that you read this series in order. Otherwise there will be too much confusion. Refuge is every bit as creepy as Kurtain Motel and I can’t wait to begin the final chapter of this series.

    I received a free audio.com version of this book. Purgatory is the last of a series of three books in The Sin series. This is an excellent series with lots of scares and drama. Patrick Lahm and Jimmy Frey have escaped from Refuge and now face their biggest challenge yet. An unspeakable horror has taken over Jimmy’s mother’s body and is busy gathering souls for it’s new “farm.” To stop it, Patrick and Jimmy must fight their way through their own nightmares and team up with some less than savory characters. I found myself cheering them on and fearing for them as they got into jam after jam.Anyone who likes ghost stories and supernatural horror will like this series. I enjoyed it every bit as much as the Berkley Street series, and that is a great one as well. Give it a shot.
