Awesome book. Very Gory, and very inapropriate. If you get what i mean....um. The book has it's usual freaky ending, and no, that doesn't give anything away, because all his books end freaky, you know, with a bit of a twist. Course, everybook does. I must say, i did cry while reading this book, more than the goosebump books ever did. It's not a tear jerker or anything, but, it just has those moments when you can't help it. Well, i think i confused you enough.

I wasn't all that impressed. I found some grammatical errors in the book, and the plot seemed fairly obvious, along the lines of what Stine writes for teenagers, just with a little grown-up sex thrown in to make it an "adult book." Not my cup of tea.

From Publishers Weekly
Stine has written 56 YA novels and one adult novel, all horror. Readers will recognize this as the adult novel because it's hardcover and several characters in it curse, enjoy X-rated sex and die gruesomely detailed deaths. Otherwise, this simple, sturdy story of occult mayhem on a bucolic college campus features the sort of crude yet functional casting, plotting and prose that have made Stine America's bestselling YA author: characters verge on caricature, for easy identification; stormy nights and cliff-hangers abound; and no-frills prose, arranged in short sentences and paragraphs for speed reading, tells the tale ("The fingers stab deep. Her eyeballs make a soft plop plop as they are pried out"). Even those with minimal attention spans will keep turning pages as grad student Sara Morgan meets and marries hunky prof Liam Morgan. So what if Liam has a murky past, lives with his sister and takes his field?Irish folklore?so seriously that he throws salt over his shoulder for good luck and cringes in terror when a black cat jumps on his lap? Does that mean he's involved in the brutal mutilation-murders that are plaguing Moore State? Stine shakes a finger at two other suspects but doesn't reveal the reason for the bloodletting until novel's end. And that's just as well since, like the rest of this story, the underlying premise is about as sophisticated, though as effective, as jumping out from a dark corner and yelling "boo!"

While this book is written by the author of the children's "Goosebumps" series, make no mistake, this is a book for grownups, not kids.

This was a good read until the last couple of chapters. Well written, felt like he built the characters well and a page turner that kept my interest...just wasn't thrilled with the ending.

AN R. L. STINE FAVORITE, GOOD READING!

I probably read this at too young of an age, but who isn't curious about sex and monsters before high school? Definetly an adult book, graphic but enjoyable.
