This was a great read for me. I had been waiting for this book for a long time. I got a digital copy an read it on my tablet. It was great to see the flow of the story and the heart of the writer in it. Can’t wait to see more from the author.

This book had me gripped from the start! Vivid descriptions bring the story and characters to life. The book, provided plenty of scary moments, leaving me with goosebumps. A must read for any horror fans.
But the story also has an important message to convey, which added a different and interesting dimension to the book. Would definitely recommend!

Another absolutely amazing book by the very talented author. This book not only traverses you down a dark road that Stephen King would be proud of - it also follows with a shining beam of light that leaves a great message. The book was beautifully detailed and every page was another anxiety ridden step into the mind of the main character.
Written in a time where fear has taken a stronghold on everyone, this book not only distracts you from the ugly of the outside world but gives you something more powerful than fear … hope. Hope that the darkness can go away and better days will come.
High praise again for the author and his work

I love books with a psychological slant. I don't mind if that slant points towards horror, thriller or any other genre as long as it takes a new look at a genre that can sometimes be overloaded with books that follow the same path.

Fear Trigger is written by comic book creator Daniel J. Barnes so, being familiar with his comics, I was expecting something very good. He's known for his fast pacing, interesting and unique characters as well as a prose like writing style.

Here, all of those are present and then some. The fast pace is there but Barnes doesn't fall in to the normal trap of speeding to the end of their story. Instead, despite the fast pace, there's enough time to get to know the characters and their motivations.

I've seen a lot of reviews saying that this book is one that you will speed through and will hook you in. I completely agree with that. I was blown away by how quickly it grabbed my attention and held me gripped throughout the entire story. Twists and turns are thrown at you in quick succession but they work. I was worried that it might dull the effect of the next twist but it really didn't nor did it feel like a game of one upping the twist that came before. Instead they were perfectly placed to surprise the reader the most.

I have to admit that it's hard to write a review for a book like this because I would hate to include any spoilers so I will leave it there but say one more thing. Get your hands on this book, it will be one that you will want to devour as soon as you are holding it.
