    When I started this one I didn't realize it was part of a series However it worked as a standalone as enough was hinted about events in the past that it added some ambiance to the story rather than becoming confusing I was reminded of both Needful Things by Stephen King as well as The Pine Deep trilogy from Jonathan Maberry as I read this A small town is invaded by a powerful man with sinister secrets The setting was great there were plenty of spooky moments and I thought the characters were well developedexcept for the main villain I don't know if it's something from past books in the series or what but I never could figure him out Vampire? Werewolf? Ghost? Something in between? No clue It was cool throughout the story but there was never any kind of payoffThis was a solid 5 star readup until the ending The ending just was too unsatisfying for me The ending made the entire book come across as a set up to the seuel which I don't think has been written? and this was just too long for a set up It was still a good read and I really liked this one I just wish the ending had been a true conclusion rather than an abrupt stop

    In the Appalachian town of Barkersville a mysterious man with red eyes shows up A town where the dead don't always stay dead the community has barely gotten over the horrific events the McFall family brought upon them five years ago McFall is a not so classic tale of good versus evil Larkin McFall wants to give the people what they want but at what expense? What's the going rate for a soul nowadays?McFall was my first peek into Nicholson's work I was apprehensive at having not read The Red Church or Drummer Boy prior to McFall However my only disappointment was that I read them out of seuence McFall was a great standalone read and while his previous works have definitely made it to my future list of reads I didn't feel it was necessary to read them in order to understand this oneOutside of my normal genre McFall had me intrigued and wanting in the first few pages Originally released as a Kindle serial the book is now complete and available as a whole Nicholson uses a good portion of the book to build believable characters and settings Usually I would balk at the lack of action but he did such a fantastic job of setting the stage My only wish is that Nicholson would have given us details about McFall; what he was what led him to town his ultimate end game With all the time devoted to character development Larkin McFall felt underdeveloped Of course this could have been intentional to leave readers continually uestioning his motivesRonnie Day now eighteen was the standout character for me Clearly damaged from his past he battles inwardly to maintain his faith and be the good that stands up to evil as the townsfolk give into temptation one by one This poor kid always seemed to be in the wrong place at all the wrong timesI remain on the fence about the choice of titling the book McFall Being my first foray into the series I originally thought it was going to be the name of a town The focus seems to be less about McFall and about other characters and Barkersville itself That being said I enjoyed the book While it wasn't non stop action the mystery of it all kept me interested from start to finish and I'm hoping to see of these characters in the future I definitely recommend McFall to readers who enjoy Stephen Kings eerie work and appreciate Nicholson finding The Bookie Monster and sharing this great read with me

    Intriguing characters enthralling story and poetic writing Oh myThere are great stories and there are well told stories Two different things The magic happens when an author can bring both to the table and Scott Nicholson has in McFall This might be his best work The word tangible comes to mind I could see hear and feel the mountain river running under the bridge and the horrors it held It is like the words and story flowed onto the pages just like the river it centers around Watching Larkin McFall now one of my favorite antagonists play the towns people of Barkersville was a page turning thrill Every character in this story had depth and felt realMcFall takes place many years after the events in The Red Church and Drummer Boy but you don’t have to read them to appreciate this story All relevant information is providedThis is an evil vs good story with a blurry line between the two Ghost stories often come off as hokey to me because writers use tired eye rolling horror clichés There aren't any in McFall There also isn't any gore used to shock the reader This is the subtle horror of how easy it is to control human nature and base instincts by giving someone what they want the mostThis is a damned great read for all fans of speculative fictionMcFall is an serial novelI will take a moment to explain what a serial novel is A book is published in episodes Like a TV series When you buy the book you pay the one price All the episodes that have been published up to that point will be sent to your kindle and you will receive all subseuent episodes as they are published at no extra cost After all the episodes are published the complete book will then be available for purchase as a whole book but I am not sure if it will be at the same bargain price McFall is a 6 episode book If you look at the page for McFall all this is explained with green text in the book description section so you know what you are getting5 “game within the game playing” Sheephttpwwwismellsheepcom201311sh

    I love Scott Nicholson's works The Red Church and Drummer Boy and with McFall tying those two stories I knew this would be interesting I have only read the 1st episode so far but I was definitely not disappointed It was great Ronnie and his family from The Red Church Bobby from Drummer Boy and poor Sheriff Littlefield on the verge of retirement just can not catch a break with a body being found already at the start of the episode Add a new McFall in the mix with plans for building a new subdivision on the ill fated McFall property and trouble begins to brew for the small Appalachian Mountain community of Barkersville Can not wait to see what else is in store for this new Kindle Serial Great beginning

    I don’t care to read serial novels and instead prefer to wait until the author finishes all of the episodes I had been eagerly awaiting the publishing of McFall and as it was released in series I bit my nails and forced myself not to start When I read I develop a momentum and read to the endWaiting for the completed work did not disappoint me I really liked the previous novels THE RED CHURCH and LITTLE DRUMMER BOY and had high expectations for the last ? in this series of novels That usually sets the poor author up for failure but not this time Nicholson pulls from his earlier novels and really fleshes out the characters and motivations The pacing and plot are superbly doneThere is no reuirement to read the earlier books as this one stands alone uite well but I highly recommend that you do Sheriff Littleton Ronnie and David are back as well as the ghosts that haunt Pickett County in the NC Appalachians There is something about Larkin McFall that seems evil and I say ‘seems’ because there are scenes that will have you wondering for example his wish for children A mystery to say the least The McFalls have a very bad reputation in Pickett County going back to the ‘hanged preacher’ and a preacher who was most certainly evil But McFall is a tempter looking for what each person in the county most wants and somehow seeing to it that it comes to fruition Something Ronnie battles throughout the bookIt is uite evident that Nicholson’s prose has been well honed I zoomed through this book stopping only for the necessities and finished by morning I was thinking ‘this is awesome’ and then I hit the endingand the reason I have held off writing this review and after a week I still don’t know whether I liked or hated it At first I hated it then the I thought about it I began to warm up to it Your mileage may vary Personally I’ve got my fingers crossed that there will be to comeThis is an excellent read and I give it 5 stars I really hate giving 5 stars but I’ve read some really good books lately McFALL being one of them and I always rate what they deserve

    I really like Scott Nicholson's style McFall is an easy read but not simplistic at all; a very casual storytelling style from a natural born storyteller It has a very homespun feel I like in my writers You can breeze through the story and the plot is complex without being convoluted The protagonist Ronnie is a very real feeling character that you can easily empathize with and care for while the evil McFall eerily reminiscent of the Leland Gaunt character from Stephen King’s Needful Things plays at pulling his and everyone else’s strings to give in to his desires McFall promises the world but Ronnie is doubtful Can he remain strong and faithful enough to resist?You can read Michel's full review at Horror DNA by clicking here

    Accidentally read this out of order but am pleased with the story There's a clear set of boundaries between good and evil I am fascinated by the villain a seemingly unstoppable force against mere mortals He has an anti christ vibe and it's easy to see why the town falls sway While it looked like one character would rise as opposition to the town's true nemesis I was surprised at how the book played out Loved the imagery especially the bridge and creepy ghosts Well done

    Another great book by Scott Nicholson set in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina Trouble always seems to follow the McFall family so when Larkin McFall shows up Sheriff Littlefield suspects trouble to start Then the dead bodies start to pile up This is a great good versus evil book with a supernatural twist including ghosts The dead don't seem to stay dead
