Sawyer Black writes dark and violent fiction for people who secretly love puppies and rainbows. In addition to being a U.S. Army veteran, he’s also a beardsman. In fact, that’s where all his ideas come from. The beard. Speculative stories about struggle and triumph and brutal emotion, written mostly for his ideal reader, his wife of nearly twenty-five years. He’s an independent woman who likes cigars and margaritas, and he holds the deep belief that the earth is round.

I really enjoyed reading this, it was a great horror novel, it had a great spooky atmosphere that added to the tension. The plot of the book was well-written and it was what I was hoping for based on the cover. The characters were what I was looking for and am glad I was able to read this.
"I feel the bunker above me. I pass under it like I’m waiting for it to fall off the side of the hill. Bring its metal tower with it to crush me under the rubble. I get to where the private driveway cuts through the trees. A single lane, but out in the open. Cracked asphalt cooking under the sun."
Now this book does not guide you in gently to the character's, Casey's, world, but more picks you up and throws you down into a well of graphic descriptions and eerie sensations. It is brilliant, the working is great, and it holds you to the page even when you have no idea what is going on, which is about half the time.
There are a great many twists and turns in this book, some I saw coming by picking up on some things characters say, and others spring up and boop you on the nose and leave your eyes watering.
These books are amazing, and worth a read, as long as you are not squeamish, and not scared of the dark.
Born to Die by Sawyer Black was received directly from the publisher and I chose to review it. This book was one of the top 5 books I have read this year. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I started reading this book, then I noticed this was volumes 1-6 and I saw there were 1155 pages to read. With modern electronic books, the average reader obviously doesn't notice this like the olden days with the six inches thick books. As always I will not go into the plot, there is too much going on anyway to ever attempt to go into plot, but if you, or someone you buy gifts for like a constantly moving book that never bores the reader, grab this book and start reading, the reader is in for a good time.
