Signed over two hundred years ago, the Blood Contract ensured the sanctity of the Blood lands. In return, the Blood family dedicated their lives, and their deaths to the protection of the town of Thorne.

For many years, the town of Thorne was nothing more than a picturesque New England village. But in modern day, the town is enjoying a boom in real estate development. To satisfy the developers with enough land, the town has decided to break the Blood Contract.

And the Bloods are not pleased.
Not at all.

Now, as Autumn moves ever on towards winter, the Aldermen and the people of Thorne are going to learn that there is a price for ignorance.

And it’s higher than they could have ever imagined.

    Quick read. Interesting realm of characters. I am typing enough words to fulfill the requirement for Amazon. I wish I could just rate with stars.

    Quick paced story (not so much a trilogy – view as one novel in 3 segments) , enough creativity to suck you in and not put the book down.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy. My only criticism is that the books weren’t long enough!

    The Blood ContractWhen people start dying in the small town of Thorne, things become interesting. At first, no one thinks a whole lot about the death of a man—well except for how they find him. But when more are killed Jim Petrov, a police officer, takes a trip to the local historical society to find those who are dying are connected. 200 years before, their ancestors signed a contract with the Blood family. The contract between the Blood family and the town was one that could never be broken– it was binding and deadly if violated. The residence of Thorn are finding out, the Bloods are true to their word and betraying them wasn’t the best thing for those born in the town of Thorne could have done. Especially now that they’ve pissed off, not only the Blood family, but also a dark evil. Get ready to have your mind blown with this first book in The Blood Contract trilogy.Wow, this is one of those stories that grips onto you and won’t let you go. It’s a thriller that compels you to keep reading. Ron Ripley’s writing is a work of art in an of itself. If you’re a fan of creepy old myths, thrillers, and horror I would recommend for you to read this first book and decide for yourself—trust me you won’t regret itThe Old WorldIn Book Two of The Blood Contract Trilogy: The Old World, Jim meets the dark evil, the ghost of the Blood boy, Morgan, had warned him about. However, when the dark evil revealed itself it takes everything Jim Petrov has to make sure he isn’t losing his sanity.As he questions his sanity, he fights something he can’t believe is real. He unexpectedly finds a living, breathing ally. But isn’t just any ally, this guy has been in Nam and isn’t surprised by much—not even the dead from the Blood family. So now, Jim and his new ally, Fred O’Dierno, have been recruited to help the Blood family put the dark evil back in check, although the town of Thorne is sure not to survive the dark evil’s arrival.I usually don’t read trilogy’s one after the other, but this trilogy is amazing. I can’t help but to continue it to the end. Ron Ripley has created a wonderfully imaginative story that I highly recommend anyone read. It’s horror, fairytale, drama, and action all rolled up into one. Very entertaining and well written.Ghost Town (Book 3)The evil darkness (and no, I’m not telling you what the dark evil is. If you want to know, you’ll have to read the book) has hit the small town of Thorne full-fledged. People of the town are dying gruesome, unspeakable deaths left and right but there are a few who are trying to make it out alive. Jim and Fred have figured out what they need to do to stop the dark evil but it won’t be an easy task to complete—alive, at least. However, with the help of the Blood family ghost and a few people they pick up along the way this may just work. So, the question is, will a few survivors of this dark evil make it out alive or will they suffer the same fate as the rest to Thorne?Ron Ripley has created a fantastic trilogy that will excite you, scare you, and make your imagination go into overdrive. You will not believe how these books take you into an unimaginable horror but one that is fun to read. I love this Trilogy and will be reading more from this wonderful author.

    I read Ron Ripley’s “The Boylan House Trilogy” and “Sherman’s Library Trilogy” and enjoyed them both. They were hard to put down. I also read “The Enfield Horror Trilogy” and was not pleased with it. I was not pleased with “The Blood Contract Trilogy either. It was just “okay”.The story starts off on a good note. I thought I was going to read a 4 or 5 star book. But that was not the case here. The story had a major change part way though, that turned me off.In the 1700’s, Hawthorne Blood gave a large amount of land to the town of Thorne, NH. Hawthorne parceled off a large section of land for himself. In a contract (Blood Contract), he wrote the land parceled to him could not be used by the town for any purpose, ever. If they did, they would suffer grave consequences.The contract was signed by Hawthorne and the town’s Aldermen. The story switched to present day. The town began to build housing developments on Blood’s land. He did not agree to sell, so the town used eminent domain as a way of securing the land. As specified in the contract, the town began to suffer grave consequences. Ghosts of former townspeople began to show up and kill residents of Thorne in horrible ways. The ghosts were those from the Blood family. There was one ghost, from 1933, a little boy named Morgan. He was a very interesting character. The book was really keeping my interest and I could not put it down. I thought I was in for an awesome ghost storyThen it took, in my humble opinion, a bad turn. I lost interest. Killings of the townspeople continued, but not from ghosts. They continued with an invasion of giants, goblins and faeries. These faeries were not the Disney kind. The rest of the book is centered around some characters trying kill off these evil beings. I found this almost laughable. However , I did finish the book. Since the author probably spent a lot of time writing this book, I should at least be able to finish it. I am sure Ripley intended to write a book to please most of his fans. Other reviews on Amazon of this book are very good. I am in the minority, so perhaps I just didn’t get it.The writing, however, is good and the story moved quickly. There is a great deal of action, which is exciting at times. Ron Ripley is a very good story teller and I will read more of his books I plant to read “The Moving In Trilogy” next.

    I really enjoyed reading this book! Kept my interest peeked. This author has a way of keeping my interests up, which in turn makes his books page turnovers.

    I loved these books! You don’t want to mess with the Blood Family and you don’t want to break a contract with them. I wasn’t expecting the faery folk. Made it so much more intriguing.

    A surprising twist…. This is what happens when you mix a ghost story with a fairy tail. Never expected fairies, giants and trolls could be so vicious.

    Like his other books, I was hooked from the first page. I didn’t find this one as good as some of the others, but it’s one of his earlier works. Sadly, editing is always a problem. I do recommend horror fans give this a try.

    As always with Ron’s stories this was an easy flowing story that kept my attention. It offers good background and a believable cast of characters.

    I like this story is going apart from what are they writing nowadays. Goblins, Giants, Contracts..😻😻.This characters are well created and Ron Ripley used his capacity to overlap them from secondary to primary as needed in the plot.A wide range of people, young, olders, middleage…a variety for all and every scene.The plot is excellent, moving old wives tales? from “the old world” and place it today. And even keep their natural accents (Irish Brogue, German).The help of the Blood Family was impressive, you don’t want to miss even a letter.I but the books of Ron Ripley because I know I’ll enjoy it greatly!!!I began with one book and I still just 3 books to got all the books from Ripley. And the wonderful news than a new book of the “Berkley Street Series”, is almost there…YAY.I’m very honest with my Reviews, not only for me, the author or other readers, how an author know when did something good or need improvement?How another reader believe in my review? If I didn’t read the book, I don’t Review. If the book is good, Review. If the book isn’t good, Review.With that we all benefit, readers, authors & readers searching for something new or special.I’m very honest with my Reviews, not only for me, the author or other readers, how an author know when did something good or need improvement?My opinions are my own.
