"Endurance" by Jack Kilborn (J.A. Konrath)

Synopsis - (from

From the author of AFRAID comes a non-stop descent into madness, murder, and living nightmares. When four female triathletes are forced to stay at a creepy bed and breakfast in the middle of the West Virginia woods, they had no idea of the horrors in store. They are forced to fight for survival against an evil as secret as it is terrifying--and some of them won't get out alive..


Rating: 4 out of 5

Genre: Horror

This book reminded me of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" mostly. It was a quick and easy read. The story builds the more you read. Some may think it is slow in the beginning, but it picks up sooner than you think.

There were pretty many suspenseful parts leaving me looking at my closet to ensure it was closed. I'm just glad that my bed is flat on the floor so I did not have to keep looking under there too! I love stories like this that make you check your locks and windows 2-4 times before even considering going to bed.

I do not scare easily, but this book did have me double-check various rooms and doors in my house. I love when stories can get to me in that fashion. It is not often that they are able to do that. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to feel a little paranoid after each reading session.

An Inn, off-set in the backwoods, is the setting for this paranoid-horror ride. Blood, incest, deformities, torture, and former presidents of the United States are poured into your soul as your read each page. A very fun read!
