One of the best writers in modern horror to come along in the last decade. Janz is one of my new favorites.Brian Keene
Fearing that mankind is heading toward nuclear extinction,a group of geneticists unleash a plot to save the world. They’ve discovered that mythological creatures such as werewolves, vampires, witches,and satyrs were once real,and that these monstrous genetic strands are still present in human DNA. These radical scientists unleash the bestial side of human beings that had been dormant for eons, and within months, most people are dead,and blood thirsty creatures rule the earth. Despite the fact that Dez McClane has no special powers, he is determined to atone for the lives he couldn’t save and to save the woman he loves. But how long can a man survive in a world full of monsters?
Johnathan Janz is on my auto read list. I lovr his writing and have never read anything by him that I didn’t like. As expected, The Raven was awesome and it was an easy five stars for me.
This book is much more visceral horror than psychological. With monsters and violence, I expected such. Normally, I’m more into psychological, but Johnathan Janz just knows how to write horror. His descriptions got under my skin. This plot is just so engaging, I was scared but not able to stop reading.
I could go on and on but if horror is your jam, you don’t want to miss The Raven. Johnathan Janz is an author you want to keep an eye on because he is one of the best horror authors I’ve read in a while. Highly recommended.
