"[And] The Demon Baqash is a page-turning tale of suspense told beautifully by the third person narrative as well as an immersion into never-revealed forgotten journals. Ok, I know it's just a book but I forgot this at times and instead felt like I was discovering ancient texts."

"I had no idea that this book would grab me the way it did and suck me in. The Demon was wicked and yet pitiful. The characters were devilishly divine and the plot thickened... Yes I said that!!! The book made me want to know more about the characters, It was the kind of book that when you finish you scream... NOOOO because it's over. And yet all your questions were answered. I'm looking forward to reading more of Thom Reese's books. I have to read more. He writes so well that you are compelled to follow his career. At least I am!!! Sorry no spoilers here!!!"
—Arylen Jones, Amazon 5-Star Review (The Demon Baqash) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"This was a great book from start to finish. Once I picked it up, I spent the rest of the day reading. I read a lot of Clive Barker and this book had the same type of imaginative and gripping writing style. Would highly recommend this book!"

13 Bodies: Seven Tales of Murder & Madness
"Short stories at their finest. They run the gambit from flat-out terrifying to rollicking black humor. Each character is unique in their own personal madness (aren't we all?) and their stories are engrossing. Several of the stories gave me the feeling of reading a great episode of the Twilight Zone (but with better special effects). Two disembodied thumbs up!"
—A. D., Amazon 5-Star Review (13 Bodies) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Dead Man's Fire
"A great read - I recommend this to anyone who likes to sit down to a great adventure of a story!"

"THE INFUSION OF ARCHIE LAMBERT is a creepy nail-biter of a thriller. Devious, surprising and rapid-fire. It's a killer."
