The readers who took this book to read after finishing all the Joe books, know that Mr. Maberry has improved, immensely.
The story in this book does not end. It is a chapter in a trilogy, with two more chapters to come. For those who like the genre, it's a romp.
I read all three one after and enjoyed the story. The development, build-up and the conclusion. It is not for the faint of heart. Lots of blood and gore, evil people and non-people.
i enjoyed it and then moved on to something totally different.
Waiting for a Joe book, Mr. Maberry.
I decided to try his other series, and am making my way through them, but I just finished this trilogy and wanted to voice my opinion.
I found the first book a little slow, but I realize now, it was only because the stories in the books take place over approximately a month, and I'm glad I was able to read one book after another. It was like reading one really long book, and each book built on the one before. By the third book, I was so invested in the characters and in the story, I could not put the book down. Mr. Maberry is a wonderful story teller.
The setting of the town of course was another character, and if you like horror, or just plain creepiness, I think this trilogy is a must read.
I did find a set of short stories on audible that also take place in Pine Deep, I am in the process of listening to them now. Kind of going slow, don't want them to end!
If you have not read Mr. Maberry, do yourself a favor and read his books. This is the third trilogy of his I have read, cannot get enough. I'm not a fan of zombie stories but I even liked his Dead of Night series. Again....wonderful storyteller.....
I won't make comparisons between Maberry and other legendary, epic writing king (heh) of horror but this book and the others could easily hold their own!. Like the other books in the series this one can be read as a standalone since Maberry supplies enough info to allow the reader to make a connection with the characters and past events without coming across as repetitive filler. I know I haven't supplied a lot of story details for good reason, longtime horror fans have seen stories similar to but not like this and some nice surprises along with the final third which is edge of the seat. Bottomline alone Bad Moon Rising is a great and horrifying novel of the evil monsters and men do and as a trilogy it becomes a archetype story of the constant battle between good and evil, light and dark one well told . Very well told! I highly recommended.
There is a reason why Jonathan Maberry has become a well-known name among genre-types. He is very talented at creating believable characters, fun and inventive situations and writing it all well. Is the trilogy perfect? No, the books are a bit bloated at some points with some unnecessary moments thrown in, but overall the pay off is delightful and the characters (both evil and good) are so interesting we gladly go in for the long ride. I can't wait on starting another of Maberry's series. The Pine Deep trilogy is his first long fiction project. It just means that he will continue to improve on his nearly peerless job of scaring us up some gothic goodness.

I loved the way that all the characters stories are finished off nicely, not saying everyone lives but its brilliantly executed.
