    The Haunted Reading Room

    Review: CHILDREN TO THE SLAUGHTER by A. I. Nasser [Slaughter Series Book 1]This is the first story I’ve read from A. I. Nasser, and I’m quite impressed. The story is very twisty, tautly plotted, and as the contemporary situation of the town (and a horrible situation it is) is securely founded in history (1826), the historical record is cleverly interwoven. I alternated between “oh no!!!” And “I can’t believe these people would stoop to—” which made this story an absorbing one-session read for me. I’m off to read the next in the series.Caution: Although the story relies on character, an unexpected plot, and subtle horror–there are some instances of outright violence, a few graphic descriptions, and a whole lot of grief and sorrow [plus several characters I wanted to shake senseless). Also, it does focus on the disappearance of multiple children (although not in detail). Just a gentle caution.

    The Haunted Reading Room

    Review: SHADOW’ S EMBRACE by A. I. Nasser(Slaughter Series Book 2)A. I. Nasser is a talented writer delivering a seriously kickin’ series in the Slaughter Series. The quiet historic Connecticut community of Melington is discovering the ugly consequences of cancelling the blood bindings contracted with long-deceased Copper Tibet. Meanwhile, the Council is in uproar, and Alan Carter undergoes nearly unspeakable torments to rediscover and recover his younger sister, abducted by Copper Tibet two decades ago

    I really enjoyed all three of these books however there were far too many “the brunette” “the blonde” “the redhead”.

  13. Rated 4 out of 5

    justjodi

    I absolutely loved the story! There was one thing however that drove me crazy. The author would describe main characters, ie his sister, as the blond, his girlfriend as the brunette, (three times on one page), and multiple characters by their hair color! Instead of saying his little sister, the protagonist would say “the blond”. Other characters with names and/or titles would be the redhead, the brunette, and several blonds. It was distracting. I would’ve given 5 stars if not for this constant, and annoying habit.

    I can’t honestly recommend a book I have no desire to read. I read 69% of this story and it went nowhere. The characters did not inspire me to want to care about them, or know more. Alan’s big deal is that everyone thought he was crazy…ok…after 20 years get off the poor pitiful me train. No one likes or respects anyone. They are all keeping a big secret. If you can’t grab my attention in over half of a book, it’s not happening. Who cares if Deborah and Michael have a lousy relationship. Deborah comes off as such a shallow, small minded mess anyway. I really am sorry I had nothing good to say. I give an honest review. Perhaps if the author tries again, I will give it a look.

    Would have given 5 stars if not for the weird and constant use of the word “brunette” to fill in for, oh I don’t know, the character’s actual name! It started driving me nuts! But otherwise, great story and look forward to finishing the series.

    Customer

    Well written other than the constant use of “blonde,” “brunette,” and “redhead”- super annoying. I guess the ending is alluding to a possible 4th installment due to all the loose ties- *SPOILER ALERT* I thought the kids we being set free, yet no mention of that happening?!? And I felt the addition of the town riot and FBI involvement actually detracted from the main story. I found myself basically skipping long passages just to get back to the Alan and Copper show. I honestly think the story would have been better served to just focus on that, cutting all the extraneous Law and Order crap out. Started with high hopes, but ultimately a bit disappointed. Regardless, I think this author is talented and I would be willing to try his other works.

    I pushed through this painfully boring book hoping for something, anything worthwhile to happen. Only to find out the story drags on to another book. Seriously? How could one possibly read through another book of this lowly caliber? Do people even need to have a niche for storytelling anymore? Where do these “author’s” come from and how do they manage to have such high ratings? Long review cut short: If you are looking for anything mildly creepy or thrilling or even slightly enjoyable, keep looking.

    We all know who the bad guy is but all the mystery and wonder as to why a whole town would cover for such a gruesome secret?!? I LOVED this story, spooky, but not blood and gore which I try to stay away from. Then ending was difficult however I didn’t know this was a trilogy therefore I’m sure they’ll be filled with surprising twists and turns! Alan is a hero we can all truly love and empathize with. I really enjoyed how all the characters were connected by generations and the story told directly from the accuser in the 1800’s. I like the story, it’s kind of a good moral questions: do wrong by some to save all the others? Can’t wait to start the next one!

    I got stuck on this book for like two months. I just did not enjoy it. It switched between characters way too often without much explanation of who was who and it took a while to piece it all together. It was also really predictable. I would definitely not recommend this book.

    Alan Carter returns to his hometown Melington 20 years after his sister’s abduction. He has been obsessed with her disappearance, firmly believing that the abnormally high number of children disappearing from the town isn’t simply a coincidence. He decides to expose the town’s secret and sets himself on a collision course with the town’s council.Alan’s present day story is interjected with journal entries from 1826 written by Jeremiah Carter who has lost his daughter. These two plotlines come together cleverly at the end, and although the book doesn’t end with a cliffhanger as such, the story resumes in Shadow’s Embrace.This was my first time reading anything by A.N. Nasser and I have to admit, if it hadn’t been for Jake Urry gifting me a copy of the audiobook, I probably wouldn’t have picked this book, simply because the title sounded too disturbing.It is no doubt a horror story, but it was actually quite subtle. There is some violence and obviously, a dark theme involving children, but it’s more creepy than bloodthirsty horror. I actually really enjoyed it.The writing was taut and generally very well done. The only thing I found slightly irritating was the repetitive nature in which Deborah was referred to as “the brunette”.The quality of the audio production was terrific. At the beginning of the audio, I thought I was listening to two different narrators. It was really well done. The suspenseful tone and the spine-chilling nature of the horror elements were done perfectly.

    ***POSSIBLE SPOILERS***A well-written but sluggish story with little suspense. A town secret spanning generations. Dying children. A nebulous town “Council”. Superfluous diary entries (“Woe is me; woe is me.”) back to the 1820s when the curse began. The drawn out but inevitable romance between our two protagonists. Wiggling doorknobs. An ill-defined monster with a strong grip lurking in sofas, sandboxes and children’s closets. Not credible, interesting or frightening. A couple of bonus endings only added to the confusion. The narrator was fine with creepy narration and accents but, due to his languid delivery, made the audiobook feel even longer than it was. I was glad when this “nightmare” was over. Will not be reading additional books in this series.I was given a free copy of this audiobook through Audiobook Boom for an honest review.

    The story is about Alan whose sister disappeared when they were young. Alan has come back to the town where it happened to try to find out what happened to her. A lot of children have disappeared over the years and he wants to know why. What happened to them all?I liked that it was more spooky than just out and out violent. I like the way the author wrote it with Alan in present day and a journal from 1826. The author did an excellent job with blending the two time periods. The characters were connected through generations so you really get the full impact of how long the horror has gone on. There are bonus scenes at the end of the Audible version. I don’t know if they are included in the ebook. The book is part of a series.I enjoyed the narrator, Jake Urry. He has a good voice and puts emotions into his reading. At times I forgot it was just one narrator.If you are reading the book yourself you may find the beginning slow going as the author builds the story. It does quickly pick up though. I think this was better in the audio version. It is more like someone is telling you a story they know. I stayed with it better. If you like spooky, atmospheric stories you may like this one. If you are looking for violent, gory stuff you probably won’t.I would like to thank the editor for providing me with a copy of the book from Audible for possible review. The review is my honest impression of the book after listening to it. I received no compensation for this review.

    Children to the Slaughter was a creepy and interesting audiobook. With children leaving town on more than natural occasions the town has always had a history of a quick turnover in families.When Alan Carter comes back to Melington, he keeps his cards close to his vest as he tries to figure out exactly what is going on here. His own little sister disappeared when she was little. The only witness was Alan. He never forgot the hand that pulled her down into the sandbox. His family left the town directly after her disappearance. After twenty years he returns.Bit and pieces wiggle and meld themselves into a very intricate plot. Debra the best friend of Alan from when they were both children is surprised to see him return. She has no clue he has more reasons than just to work.Alan’s conspiracy theory hits Debra hard and she turns away from him. There are too many strange occurrences of missing children for decades.The story is riveting.with tension-filled words and scenes that A.I. Nasser writes.If you love a good horror story, with hands in the dark, turning closet doorknobs and missing children, you are going to love this book. I imagine reading it would give as many chills, but if you want the full effect, get the Audiobook. It is completely chilling.

The hands of Copper grabbing people around the ankles just terrifies me. Each time he shows up, I am more upset with the raspy voice and the horrible stench. A.I.

The horror story in this small town has historical and modern aspects. The characters are well fleshed out, like able and interesting. Carter returns to Millington after years of psychological scrutiny determined to find his sister, who was taken in front of him. What he confronts is a conspiracy of horror. Great read!

    Book 2 of the Slaughter series, picks up in Shadow’s Embrace, after six months of the town being able to relax. Then all hell breaks loose. Debra Adam’s mother is now head of the council and Debra is distancing herself from her mother. The search for Adam to find his sister continues. He is somehow connected to both sides and it plagues him.The story is wonderfully scary. The dead skin, rotting breath, and boney hands make a new appearance and are creepy as can be.This is another excellent portion of the story of the people in Melington.I listened to this book in Audiobook format and I have to say, with Jake Urry’s voice, it is a great choice. Jake’s voices capture American accents, women, old, and young. It is amazing that he can individualize his voice as he does.If you like eerie stories about what happens to the missing children, then this is a wonderful series to read or listen to. It is a great story.With a bonus of the next book teaser, I know I am hooked. Can’t wait to read more from A. I. Nasser.Just an excellent book.

    I listened to the audio version of this book from Audible, and I’m so glad I did. Wow! How creepy, with edge-of-your-seat thrills and lots of bits to send chills down your spine too. I really loved this book. The reader of the audio version, Jake Urry, is simply amazing. I don’t think I would have enjoyed this book as much if I had read it. He has the talent of becoming numerous characters, easily distinguishable. The book itself was really well-written and frightening. It also left the door open for the rest of the series, so you might (like me) be saying some choice words, ha! Thank goodness for the internets as it’s easy to download the next. If you want something to keep you up at night, this will fit the bill! Excellent horror story, even better audio version.

    So I decided to take a leap into a novel, and I have to admit I was a little hesitant at first. I believe short stories and novels are two different art forms, and rarely does an author do well at both. But this was really, really good.Alan Carter returns to his hometown to find out what took his sister and what the council is hiding. I thought this book was terrific, and it really kept me turning the pages. The scares were there, the suspense was there, the characters were there. I loved every minute of this. There were a few instances where I thought “come on!” and large chunks that made me turn the lights on. I gave up reading at night all together after I was midway through. Really great book! And the story continues for two more books!! Really looking forward to the next ones

    I enjoyed this entire series and felt like this third book could easily lead into a fourth. There where many loose ends and unanswered questions leaving me wanting a continuation. All these things carefully thought through, I expect a fourth book and will be disappointed if one never comes. I do recommend this book but do say they should be read in order. If you don’t, you’ll be lost. Good series Mr. Nasser.

    Children to the slaughter is a chilling story with a slow terrifying build. Though the ending seemed abrupt, it was still a satisfying climax. The extended chapters helped to fill in the gaps left behind when the story ends. But the true reasons for giving this book four stars was the nemesis. Copper Tibbit is the scariest bogeyman I’ve read since children of the corn (he who walks behind the rows). I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

    Good and scary. The plot is well laid out. I particularly like the format where diary excerpts are included in each chapter. Slowly revealing the past as the present unfolds. The characters are normal everyday people. Some good and some evil. Like life. I recommend and look forward to reading more from this author.

    Very interesting story that’s dates back to Alan Carter’s ancestors. A decision that was made in grief became a nightmare for generations to come. Alan is trying to stop that nightmare.

    Very hard to follow. You have a great imagination. As you’re reading in present time it flips back to the past, to the beginning. Then as I was getting farther into the story I began to understand the reason for the back and forth. If you need to put the book down for a day or two as I did, it’s hard to get back on track. I’m sure I missed something. I would like to see this in a movie where I can watch everything in a sequence. I think I’ll pick this up another time and read it again.

    RHB. I really appreciate having this game. it is hard enough to keep me engaged; easy enough to figure out occasionally.

    I was interested and involved all through the book (1 of a series), but I still haven’t got the answers to what actually happened by who. I’m thinking that it will the very end of this book that finally makes it all make sense, which is difficult..😕

    I am not a fan of horror. But I took a chance on this one because the cover of the book caught my interest. Well it did not fail me. I finished the book in one day between cooking and caring for the children. I am planning to read some more of your books.

    I was going to stop reading after the first three chapters because it did not hold my attention but I thought I would give it a chance. I continued to read it to the end and it still ceased to hold it. The author just seemed to go off in a weird direction and was quite confusing. It could have been a great book but something is missing

    About 25 pages in, I found myself skipping paragraphs. By 45 or 50 pages, it was whole pages. I would like to be able to say something nice about the book, like the story was unique, or the character development was good, but frankly, I can’t think of anything redeeming about this book. Don’t waste your time.

    PIKE.D

    A surrealistic novel with unrealistic characters. The story plays out like a young teens movie film and perhaps Nasser could make a fortune by going down the road of ‘could your novel become a movie?’The story is based, as usual in these American novels, on ‘the settlers curse’ in a town founded around the year 1826. An ‘innocent’ man is convicted of murder and without true justice a lynch mob of town’s people hang and burn the man to death. In the throes of death he screams out that he is innocent and will return to punish the town and its future inhabitants in consequence of his horrific death. He becomes a monster who for eternity will take away innocent children from the town thus conceding to the very crime for which he has been convicted.A solidarity group whose descendants perpetrated the death of the man now have to keep this evil monster in check by fulfilling his desires in order to prevent him from causing further grief to the town and its people. Their actions are despicable but to their dismay Alan Carter the main character whose family once lived in the town, after many years away, returns, determined to find out what is going on and to discover why his sister disappeared in such unbelievable circumstances.The reason for giving only two stars rests on various facts. Firstly there are numerous typo errors and the author needs to employ a competent editor. Character description is weak and not fully expanded I.e. the reader needs to know more about Copper’s background so that there is a reasonable understanding of his possible guilt in the crime he has been accused of. There does not seem to be an on going balance between ‘good’ and ‘evil’ which is necessary in this genre.Further more the writer has not given the reader a satisfactory conclusion to his first book and has instead blurred and confused the ending by launching into the first chapter of the next book in the series.Charles Dickens always satisfied his readers with a plausible ending to each episode yet left them craving for more in his next chapter. The author would do well to take note of this method instead of revealing a disconnected and confusing on going plot as a ploy to bribe the reader into buying his/her next book.

    Easy read. This book is just different enough to keep the reader interested in more to come. “Horror” books rarely can hold my interest as they usually surround overworked themes. Definitely worth it. Looking forward to the next story.

    This was one of those why not kindle freebies. Fairly by the book genre story…evil in a small town, ancient secrets, sins of the fathers, etc., but all done quite well for what it is. Wherein Nasser won’t win any records for originality, he followed the formula very ably, so it’s a perfectly readable and even quite entertaining read. The author seems to specialize in series and this one, no exception, is just a first, so it doesn’t have a particularly satisfying stand alone sort of feel or ending, it’s basically a preview. I don’t think I’d continue with it, unless the other installations were also free, but this was fun enough, had some nicely creepy scenes and such a quick read too.

    I had some issues with the writing, a few too many errors that should have been caught when proofing it.That being said, I liked the story and found that it kept my interest.

    I enjoyed the story. I think your editor or proof reader needs a stern talking with. Lots of simple mistakes that made it difficult for me to stay involved in the story. The errors is the reason I didn’t give you a better rating. I find them such a distraction, especially when there are more than just a few.

    I read this three book series in three nights…yes it was that enjoyable! Each night I looked forward to continuing this crazy adventure in Melington and was sad to see it end. The story was unique and intriguing and I enjoyed it tremendously. My only complaint would be the ending…what about the children? That’s all I’ll say, don’t want to give anything away! Thank you Mr. Nasser for an enjoyable read!

    This is my first book by this author, and won’t be my last. While there were a few missing words in parts, it wasn’t hard to figure out what was being said. This was a very eerie and interesting story. Creepy when you think about the monster in the closet as a child! I can’t wait to see what happens next, and what exactly the monster is doing with the children, and what our main character will do to defeat him.
