    Absolutely a great read. If have read any other of the trilogies you will certainly enjoy this one as well. If you haven’t I recommend reading the other three especially poo especially Sherman’s Library. Great writer and I hope more to come.

    Enjoyed the book but the conclusion left me wondering what the heck happened. Everything moved so fast near the end.

    An entertaining piece about a Dragon in a possessed hunting lodge.Even though it was a trilogy,it was not too long.I thought the dragon should have been bigger,however.

    The bodies fall fast and frequently in this tale. The monster is an Eastern-style dragon named Ka-Riu, a king of dragons. How he got caught and trapped in the hunting lodge is something we don’t yet understand. The lodge itself, though, is also hungry, and as it feeds it heals itself. Ka-Riu eats the flesh of the animals and humans he attacks, while giving the lodge their blood. The two seem to have developed an interesting symbiotic relationship.When I take notes on a book I’m reading, I try to keep track of names of characters and what they’re up to. In this case I had a long list of names without much information next to each. Ripley tries to give names and at least a line of characterization before killing someone off, which made this tale feel much more thickly populated than it is. I think it was a good choice in trying to outline and give personality to the massive numbers of deaths going on, although it occasionally made it difficult to figure out who was a longer-term character we were meant to care about.Most of the book consists of Ka-Riu and the lodge destroying everyone they can get their hands on. Professor Bennett (a woman despite her male first name, Kyle) asks why a dragon king would be in this situation, and this never gets answered. As she searches mythology and her peers for answers, the only clue she obtains indicates that it will take a goddess to kill a dragon. (Making for an actual deus ex machina, assuming that works.) I will say I think there was enough other material to keep the reader from feeling short-changed, but I do wish we could have learned more about what the deal was with the lodge.

    I read all the customer reviews of the “Enfield Horror Trilogy”. It looks like I am in the minority of readers who did not like it. I like Ron Ripley’s trilogy books. I enjoyed “The Boylan House Trilogy” and “Sherman’s Library Trilogy” very much. So, I expected good things from this one. I was disappointed with the story.It takes place in Enfield, NH. The “Enfield Horror” is a huge, red, Japanese dragon. That turned me off right away, but I decided to read the entire book since it is only 133 pages. The dragons; name is Ka-Riu, and he is very hungry. There is a very old hunting lodge in the woods that looks like it was built yesterday. The lodge is hungry too, it is Ka-Riu’s home, and he has to keep it fed. He feeds it the blood from the victims he tears apart. The violence is very graphic but it has to be for the story to make sense.Tom Henderson, an Enfield police officer and a farmer named Israel Porter, are determined to free the town from the dragon. Tom calls goes to see Kyle Bennett, a female college professor with knowledge of Japanese dragons. I found this to be very corny. She finds a way to free the town of Ka-Riu, which is even cornier. Many townsfolk die throughout the book in very horrific ways before the story reaches its’ climax.I found the story very weak. The dragon communicates with its’ victims through his thoughts. I found those scenes to be almost comical. The writing is just okay and the plot is weak. I was very disappointed with this book. I am glad I got it for free with my subscription. I do not recommend this book. I guess every author is entitled to one bad book. Don’t let this stop you from reading “The Boylan House Trilogy” and “Sherman’s Library Trilogy”, those are good books.

    Good book. But, I felt it was too predictable. It should of kept the lodge more in the story, instead of just killing off new characters every other chapter.

    Many loved Ripley’s previous works but said something was wrong with this one. Since it was my first book by the author, I figured I had nothing to compare it to, so I’d not be disappointed. I was. Don’t get me wrong, the story was very original. The Enfield Horror took place in a New England town, where everyone knows everyone. But no one knew there was a strange lodge hidden in the woods. Not until a storm came and opened up the area, allowing it to be spotted- but the lodge wasn’t the problem. Well, not the real problem. I really wanted to enjoy this story. It was different, it was filled with action and there was no rhyme or reason to any of it. It was funny from time to time and quite realistic when it came to the way the townsfolk and sheriff handled things. What I did not like was the ending…

    Not quite what I was expecting, but in a good way. An angry dragon helps himself to a free, gory meal whenever he wants it. It has all the gory details but in my opinion is still OK for teens. Keep it creepy gang! You have yet to disappoint me!

    It was a fast read and easy. Great bedtime reading. Only thing is you have to get the trilogy because the books end in the middle of the story.
