    1 thought on “Kill Creek”

    1. KILL CREEK, by Scott Thomas, is apparently his first novel.  After reading that, I was positively stunned.  I went into this book without any preconceived notions, and ended with giving it a full five-star rating.  For any novel, this was fantastic--when you factor in the knowledge that it was the author's debut, it's astonishing!"No house is born bad . . . "The premise of KILL CREEK begins with a billionaire's horror-loving son's podcast, in which he strives to bring the horror genre back in [...]

    2. "Rumors are its life, stories its breath. And when you have served its purpose, it will cast you aside. It will forget you." "And then you, too, will be forgotten."FINALLY! A horror novel that delivers! It's been a while since I've read such a gripping and satisfying horror novel. This is a debut novel for Scott Thomas, and it's no wonder it has taken him years to perfect. The writing is simply hypnotic. It has that slow tantalizing build up, but then it grips you ever so tight with gore and may [...]

    3. HELL YES. I am constantly on the lookout for a spooky haunted house novel with a good story. Kill Creek delivered, and this is a new favorite book. Kill Creek answers just enough questions to make you happy, but gives you just enough mysteries to keep you invested. This is a tough balance to maintain, and Scott Thomas handled it successfully.I LOVED the characters. There are 4 authors who all write different types of horror, a social media / internet mogul (not entirely sure what to call him, bu [...]

    4. 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2017/10/30/Some of my favorite horror stories involve haunted houses, because after all, a home is supposed to be a place of warmth and shelter. The idea of what was once a safe haven being invaded by malevolent spirits creates such a sense of wrongness that the terror is elevated to a whole other level. In Kill Creek, a character even ventures to explain why such stories fill us with dread, positing it’s because we never expect such awfulness to [...]

    5. Trigger warnings include domestic violence, self harm and suicide.Kill Creek is best read when the weather is on your side. While I travelled to the Finch House there was torrential rain, thunder that rattled the windows, hail that pounded on the roof, 30,000 lightning strikes one night in the local area (or so they reported on the news) and wind that howled through the trees. One windy night around 3am as I crept through the dark house trying to be quiet so I didn’t wake anyone up I walked th [...]

    6. Four horror authors are spending Halloween night at Hell Creek in the Finch house. It will be great publicity.Unfortunately for them, if the Finch House is half as haunted as the rumors suggest, the only publicity they are going to get, is in the obituaries.A very well done haunted house tale with a few nice turns thrown in. The story was written well and despite a hiccup or two, flowed nicely and was very entertaining. I look forward to reading more from this author.I dug it.

    7. Requested on Netgalley. Big thanks to Scott Thomas, Netgalley and Ink Shares for making it possible to read this arc in exchange for an honest reviewWow. Wow. Wow.Okay, a horrorstory with a haunted house in it always makes a good first impression and I am so glad that it ended up to be veryawesome till the last page! That last page whoo!In this book you're following 4 horrorwriters who are being invited to stay 1 night at a haunted house (Kill Creek) for a live, online interview. I thought that [...]

    8. This book was a real struggle to get through. I still can't believe I finally made it after two weeks of repeatedly forcing myself to pick it up, only to put it away again after a few chapters because I was so freaking bored.While the premise was intriguing and I did encounter glimpses of original ideas in this book, the delivery was subpar. Its main weakness was definitely the pacing. During the first half of the book (with more than 400 pages a rather long one as it is) I felt like nothing hap [...]

    9. "You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave"When four horror authors are invited to do a special interview and spend Halloween night in the remote Finch House, allegedly haunted, that sits abandoned on a forgotten corner of the Kansas prairie, they accept, assuming it all to be a career boosting publicity stunt, and nothing more. By the time the night is over, they will leave knowing differently, and glad their ordeal has ended.They would be wrong, for what lurks in Finch House [...]

    10. Buckle up, horror peeps and haunted house lovers, because I'm about to practically steal money from your wallet by convincing you that you need to go buy this book immediately, if not sooner.It's only February 5th, and I'm already calling this my favorite book of the year. Sincerely, somebody is going to have to seriously knock my socks off with some crazy creepiness to kick this off the number one position. It's that good. If you know me well, you know that I don't scare easily. I watch horror [...]

    11. Four horror writers receive an invitation to participate in a 2 day interview in an old abandoned house at Halloween which will be posted on the internet. They are promised it will go viral, and they could all use the publicity.Each writer has their own particular style, each has their own particular secrets.What could possibly go wrong? It's just a house right? This started as a slow burning subtle kind of horror. The type that gradually pulls you in deeper and never lets go. I love haunted hou [...]

    12. Four horror writers, each unique in their writing style, are invited to do an interview. Little did they realize that it would be in a house rumored to be haunted. Hoping to increase their sales, they agree to stay the night. Their host knows exactly what buttons to push to get the ratings he needs on his live feeds. Each author has their inner demons and they come to haunt them one by one within the house. They make it to morning and then leave the house and it's eerie ways. It's what happens t [...]

    13. Thank you to Inkshares for the copy in exchange for my honest review!Now, I'm a huge horror fan, and with that being said it's hard for books and movies to actually scare me. Well, if you're a horror lover looking for the next creepy read, then look no further. KILL CREEK by Scott Thomas is the perfect eerie, creepy, and scary haunted house story. Throw in horror authors as the main characters, and we've got a recipe for an exciting book!Set back in the Kansas countryside sits the Finch House. T [...]

    14. Holy cow. Wow How to even begin? Without giving away anything, a group of horror authors go to a haunted house for an interview. That’s all I really wanna say as far as a synopsis. This was a first novel, but I didn’t find that it read as one. It scared the crap out of me. I would put this right up there with Stephen King’s IT for the amount of scares. Mr. Thomas is someone who will be on my watchlist now. I’m already anticipating his next book. How many more glowing things can I say bef [...]

    15. At the end of a dark prairie road, nearly forgotten in the Kansas countryside, is the Finch House. For years it had remained empty, overgrown, abandoned. Soon the front door will be opened for the first time in decades. But something is waiting, lurking in the shadows; anxious to meet its new guests…When best-selling author Sam McGarver is invited to spend Halloween night in one of the country’s most infamous haunted houses, he reluctantly agrees. At least he won’t be alone; joining him ar [...]

    16. This book didn't turn out to be quite what I was expecting. As the story goes we have four horror authors of differing varieties that are brought together to be interviewed in the legendary haunted house of Kill Creek. That right there is enough to intrigue me. And this book did well enough until about the 48% mark and I realized that they are already leaving the haunted house with only a few bump scares and STILL we have more than half the book to go. That's when I knew this wasn't going in the [...]

    17. You know how they say "It's all in your mind" as if that's supposed to make you feel better? It's the worst because your mind is the one place you can't get out of. It's this aspect of psychological horror that the novel starts out exploring and initially, I loved it. The central characters are a group of horror writers and the themes about writing, grief, and buried trauma were thought-provoking and gave me some genuine chills. There is a fascinating core idea here about how horror is maintaine [...]

    18. You know when a book is just fine? And not like 'oh my god that attractive person is so fine', but like 'eh, you know, it was fine.' Picture me shrugging right now. There is nothing wrong with this book – the prose is good, the characters are consistent (if a little one-note), the plot trips along nicely. But everything that you think is going to happen? It's going to happen. It's clear that the author is a horror fan, and there are plenty of shout-outs to other horror writers, but overall it [...]

    19. My original Kill Creek audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.This book has all kinds of things going for it but my absolute favourite was the characters - they're all incredibly complex and well written. They're all flawed individuals (as real-life human beings often are) and the ways they interact with each other is so interesting to listen to.Thomas clearly understands that true horror needs strong characters to really creep you out, which is something this book d [...]

    20. Justin Wainwright, pays four writers, who are master of the macabre, and enormous amount of money, for an interview on Halloween night. He is going to podcast the interviews live. What the authors did not know is, that the interviews, would be held at the old Finch house, in Kansas, in Kill Creek. The house was built in 1859, and it is rumored to be haunted. The last occupants to live there, were the Finch sisters. The writer's were given a tour of the house, and what they saw shocked them. On t [...]

    21. This is a fun book.The house is extremely eerie. While any habitual horror reader will figure out exactly what the house is doing pretty early and easily, the book is creepy enough that you can't help but stay with it to see what happens.But don't get me wrong, there are surprises in the book. Each of our characters deals with their own personal horrors as well, adding depth to the story.While much of the book relies on good old fashioned suspense (and very well done suspense, at that), be prepa [...]

    22. 3.5 Stars I was ambivalent throughout this one. At times I felt that it was too much "sob story", and at times I felt it was the best thing ever. In any case, it was an interesting take on "hauntings".

    23. I know this book was good, but It took me so long to finish I forgot alot of it. Now I have no clue what to say I got to think about it.This book is taking me

    24. Note: Received a copy of this book from NetGalleyI don't think I've ever read a book that sounded so desperately like it wanted to be made into a movie. It was like a print version of a Blumhouse film, which isn't necessarily a bad thing if that's what you're looking for, but it felt very formulaic. It was definitely horror, but the type of horror that relies on jump scares and gross-out gore to be scary.The story follows four writers who are invited to a haunted house, and even after they leave [...]

    25. Full disclosure: I work for Inkshares, an independent book publishing company based in Oakland, California. We are publishing Scott Thomas' Kill Creek, which is set to release this Halloween, October 31, 2017.This book is amazing. I had the opportunity to read the manuscript (before editorial) and was blown away. Kill Creek is somewhat of a rare breed—a psychological horror with a literary twist. Scott Thomas develops dynamic characters with complex histories and sensibilities, all while evoki [...]

    26. 5 starsThe house on Kill Creek was built in 1859 near Lawrence, Kansas. Following the murder of the owner of the house and his mistress, several people tried to call the house their own, but moved out most often within a year. The house had become a bad place. In 1975 a pair of elderly twin women named Finch, one of whom was in a wheelchair, bought the place from the county. It had last been abandoned since 1961. In 1982, Rachel Finch invited parapsychologist Dr. Malcolm Adudel to the house. His [...]

    27. A Horror/Thriller Novel with a DifferenceScott Thomas' Kill Creek starts out like an ode to Shirley Jackson's Haunting of Hill House, then makes a left turn to become a refreshing and original novel that has become one of my favourite horror novels of the year.Thomas manages his plot and characters masterfully to become a knock out with an interesting cast of characters and an even more phenomenal plot that involves the reader from the start. This is a must for any reader of horror or thrillers [...]

    28. I'm a wee bit hard to please when it comes to ghost or haunted house stories, so I'll admit that I didn't have much hope when I started this book. Happily, it hit all the right spots for me. I really liked the idea of how this house became haunted. Also that freaking ending was killer! I kinda hated/loved it. Yeah, this is definitely a book I'd recommend and I look forward to reading much more from this author. I'm kind of curious if he had certain authors in mind when he was writing about his c [...]

    29. To be honest,I wasn’t expecting this to be that horrifying! As I’ve said many times,books don’t scare me easily. So this to succeed in sending chills down my spine was awesome! Kill Creek is an old house,long abandoned. Horrible things have happened in it,causing people to whisper&gossip that it’s haunted. When a popular horror website wants to do an event in the house,with four of the most popular horror authors,things start to go horribly wrong. Horror authors in a haunted house - [...]
