Grind Your Bones to Dust Kindle Edition
"The brilliance of it all is breathtaking; literally, the most masterful climax and conclusion--I have never read its equal. He writes like a man possessed. As if the very story you're reading has somehow taken over Day's being and poured itself out onto the page. I don't know if Nicholas Day sold his soul at a crossroads to bring us Grind Your Bones to Dust but this book feels like a pact made with the Devil to bring us the finest horror has to offer."
-Cemetery Dance, Sadie Hartmann
"Nicholas Day hooks you with a perfect trifecta of action, atmosphere, and character, setting you up like a pin in a bowling alley, only to mow you down with a perfect strike. Grind Your Bones to Dust is a symphony of violence rendered with a poet's eloquent finesse and a madman's ecstasy, a full frontal assault to the senses and a testament to the abilities of a master craftsman."
-InkHeist, Shane Douglas Keene
"With Grind Your Bones to Dust, Day takes us on a tense journey down a dark, desolate road. And the lights are out. Veer too much to one side and we are rewarded with unapologetic violence, both natural and supernatural. Pull to the other side and we experience the full range of human emotion through the eyes of wonderfully vivid characters, including one man gripped by madness and another who is haunted by it. And it isn't our hands on the steering wheel. All we can do is sit back, put our faith in our guide, and enjoy the ride. The perfect blend of character, voice and setting, Grind Your Bones to Dust is cause for celebration; as is an author whose tremendous ability as a storyteller is only growing with every publication."
-This Is Horror, Thomas Joyce
"Grind Your Bones to Dust is very well-written and it is very, very dark. This book made me hurt for Nicholas Day, because it's so painfully raw in the truth it tells about the world and the chastisement it lays out for those who really believe God is listening. Day's writing etches his stories onto your mind in angry, bleeding strokes. Grind Your Bones to Dust might disgust you, will probably disturb you, and will burrow into the recesses of your mind. I loved it, but damned if I didn't need a drink afterwards."
-Sci-Fi & Scary, Lilyn George
"Grind Your Bones to Dust is a visceral, unapologetic, and unforgettable beast of a book. Nicholas Day utilizes haunting, poetic prose between each vicious scene with impressive skill. The cast of characters are strange, wild, and emote a realm of pain that hooks you into their lives and refuses to let you go. Day spins us a world where the monstrous donkeys eat flesh and the characters embark on Godless quests, but the horrific sermon of human brutality is what will stay with you long after the book is closed. Say a prayer if you like, but no salvation or redemption will bother to save you from what Day has in store..."
-Sara Tantlinger, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Devil's Dreamland
"Holy demon donkeys! Grind Your Bones to Dust reads like Tarantino's Hateful Eight if it had been written by William S. Burroughs on some modern-day synthetic...yet as much as it punches right into your guts, it manages to grab you by the heart with that same fist and twist."
-Michael Arnzen, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Grave Markings and Licker--This text refers to the paperback edition.

I was captivated by the story, but even if I weren’t, I would have kept reading just for the BEAUTIFUL PROSE. The prose is fresh, too, with turns of phrases and vocabulary words I’ve never heard before (like “atramental,” I for sure didn’t know what “atramental” meant!) but without sounding stuffy.
The book is full of Biblical and philosophical allusions which make for a rich, multi-layered read. On the surface it seems anti Judeo-Christian, but I think it’s just exploration and probing and existential questioning.
I have never read a horror book with such unique, ferocious beasts like the ones in this book.
Day depicts brutal violence so well that I physically cringed even though I knew it was just words on paper (or pixels on a screen).
I would have been cast into a funk if it weren’t for a brief glimpse of redemption, bright and radiating, for one of the (many flawed) characters. The glimpse is perfectly timed and executed.
Props to Daniele Serra for the wonderful cover art and the expressive drawings inside the book.
The tension and pace drop off toward the end. It gets more surreal and philosophical. But it’s still captivating, so no stars off.
Disturbing and compelling. Five fat stars.
He writes artistically, painting the page with each scene so fully that you are there in the moment with the characters. Which for a horror novel can be terrifying. Is God dead, or insane, are we in hell already? These questions are asked throughout the story and seem to drive anyone who focuses on them too long quite mad.
i don't want to give too much away, the writing is something you deserve to experience fresh faced. There were times when the back of my neck would flash hot and cold while reading a tense, questioning scene. I finished it around 04:43 and couldn't fall back asleep for several hours, just thinking about it. I'll be getting a physical copy when I am able, and probably every other book by him.
Quite simply, I am not the same person I was going into reading his first book. He has such a strong author voice that sings as well as screams, not at the reader but rather for the reader's benefit. Raw emotion drives this book, and the reader will be taken for quite the ride before the final page.
Better buckle up.
