A viral Ebook The Chosen release Strange footsteps, faceless figures, and erotic dreams lead restaurant manager Vera Abbot to believe that the inn where she is vacationing is a breeding ground for unspeakable atrocities Original.. Popular Book The Chosen This is a very classic 90's Lee. Later in his career he went on to more plot driven stories and classic horror pastiches, but in the 90s and 2000s it was mostly hicks (or what is the politically correct term here...rural IQ and otherwise challenged individuals) and demons and rape and all sorts of gratuitous sex and perversity. This book is more demons than hicks and a five star exclusive resort with all sorts of interesting things on the menu. Very quick totally mindless reasonably entertaining distraction of a read.

  • It was enjoyable It made me wonder how the main villain connected with Edward Lee s version of hell and I would have appreciated if there was about that in there But it was a very enjoyable novel nevertheless.

  • This was pretty much what I have come to expect from Edward Lee Sex, violence and demons.The story presented a lot of great ideas But, I felt a little disappointed with the happy ending that Lee chose There were too many other ways that this could have gone that would have been fun.In Lee novels, I often find myself rooting for the bad guys than for the heroes of the story Maybe that s because the bad guys provide the kicks that draw me to Lee novels in the first place.3 STARS


  • After she finds her boyfriend cheating on her, a restaurant manager decides she needs a change of locale so she accepts a lucrative job offer, but finds there are some unexpected problems at the hotel that houses her new restaurant Horror abounds in this gory tale Mr Lee continues to draw upon Hell as a source of evil in his tales The characters, the writing, and story were good, although there were weaknesses The ending was only fair Overall, I enjoyed it.


  • Well, it is trademark Ed Lee Written early in his career, but very much like his recent books Lots of over the top sex, a demonic slant, and a great B movie feel It was cheesy in parts, but in a good way, and I really enjoyed it.


  • An excellent piece of Demon related horror fiction with enough gore, sex, gore, sex to keep the reader highly entertained Won t win any awards for originality but while it lasts it ticks all the right boxes.



  • On a scale of terrible to brilliant this book was just over the middle point Nothing bad but nothing special either Typical Edward Lee fare that was entertaining.


  • I think this is the first Edward Lee book I ever came across and I ve been a big fan of his since If you like Laymon or Ketchum and haven t found Lee yet you are missing a wild ride.



  • This book had me hooked after a few chapters for sheer creepiness alone Not a book for kids Trust me I d recommend to anyone looking for a good and creepy disturbing at times read.
