Book Review: The Con Season

Posted December 25, 2016 by lomeraniel in Audiobooks, Horror, Review / 0 Comments

I was offered a copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.

The mysterious MTY organizes a Horror Con and invites several B-level actors as main guests. The Horror Con takes a turn for the worse when they discover that the main act is much more real than they expected.

This is my second book by Adam Cesare. Some people judge this one to be inferior to Tribesmen, but I have found it very entertaining. The story is not for the ones light of heart. There is suspense, there is blood, and there is gore. Everyone seems expendable, and it is quite unpredictable.

We are given a little bit of background of the characters, but the information about the actors is scarce and at some points I had troubles to remember who was each one. I think the story would have worked incredibly well on screen.

There is a lot of build up, introducing the characters and building up the tension, but I found the resolution a bit too rushed. I would have liked the horror to be kept for a little bit longer.

The book is narrated by Joe Hempel. Let me tell you that when books are narrated by him I am more open to different styles, because I know that Hempel will put his personal touch and make the story greater than it is.

I enjoyed this audiobook, and recommend it if you liked Tribesmen and are into horror and gore.
