I thought Endless Night was pretty intense. I just recently started reading this author and I really really like him.

I've read most of his books, although I still have a couple of TBR's, but I really enjoyed Island and No Sanctuary, Body Rides was pretty good, as well.

I like After Midnight and Endless Night the best so far. I do have a few more on my TBR pile so I may change my mind after reading some of them.

So far, I've only read "The Island", but it was really good and I couldn't put it down.

Oh, great. After Midnight and Endless Night were not on my TBR shelves or on my already read list. How did I miss them? Guess I'll have to order 2 more books.

I always like it when someone recommends a book.

Well, I was going to order them, but after reading the reviews, I thought I would order Endless Night first.

But...one of the reviews gave an important piece of information that happens at the end and spoiled it for me.

My ultimate favorite Laymon read was "Body Rides", by far.

Other good ones: The Stake, Endless Night, Resurrection Dreams, the Beast House Trilogy, In the Dark.
