Publisher's Summary

On their way to Las Vegas for a pair of bachelor and bachelorette parties, Colton and Lacey run into some car trouble. They find shelter at Motel Ace, located in Middle-of-Nowhere, Nevada. They’re welcomed by a quiet clerk and they meet a cast of interesting travelers. They expect a quiet, romantic night at a dingy motel as they wait for the mechanic. Then they hear the screaming in the other rooms. Then they see the clowns outside. And those violent, deformed clowns want to come into their room to play….

In the blink of an eye, a peaceful night transforms into a battle for survival and a motel becomes a bloody battleground. 

Jon Athan, the author of Cannibal Jungle and The Law of Retaliation, returns to his roots with this gruesome, suspenseful slasher novel inspired by the 2016 clown sightings. A "Do Not Disturb" sign can’t keep these clowns away!

I don’t know man

I don’t know man, thought this was gonna be better. Narration was good, plenty of gore and violence but it just seemed a bit generic… like ho hum.

Gross but in a good way.

Wow! I haven’t read or listened to many “gruesome” stories but I’d have to say this one takes the cake. I couldn’t help but wonder how the author came up with such disgusting actions/scenes (implying he must have “issues”) but then remembered I’ve seen all the movies listed under the Dear Reader plus “worse” movies. Lol

Please take note that not all scary stories have to take place at a crap motel starring a young, innocent couple. What about an old couple… and somewhere else?

I wish there would have been a little more at the end relating to the other clown sightings and why it took the cops so long to get there, especially after the “rookie” died.

I also wish there would have been a little more to the storyline than just a bunch of people stranded in a motel during a storm with no phone service while killer clowns took over.

I “also” also wish there would have been some backstory on the clowns, especially Puddin’ given she was a cannibal and loved torturing people at only nineteen.

Moving on, the descriptions were so… descriptive/easy to image and in both a good and bad way. I imagine I had a disgusted expression throughout the majority of this story. But there were some scenes that felt overdone, like when all the injuries were listed. The scene with Monique… OMG. I don’t think I’ll ever forget that in addition to the voice chosen by the narrator when Puddin’ asked, “Should I eat it?” I might be traumatized after that. That was disgusting and disturbing, and had me wondering what I had just listened to. Of course that means the author, and the narrator, in that case, did a great job!

Unfortunately, the majority of the time, the narrator sounded like a next-level computerized voice based on the way he pronounced words (pronouncing all the letters) and the stilted way he spoke (That. Terrified. Him. Or “co.mit.mint” like he wasn’t sure how to pronounce a word). The voice he did for Maleak(?) sounded weird like a woman trying to sound like a man but doing it badly. But!!! On a positive note, Mr. Narrator, I do have to say you did a phenomenal job with the clown voices. Wow! Those really added to the creepiness of the story.


Questions/Comments:

There were too many simple dialogue tags (he/she said). And I always feel the ones that go before the dialogue take me out of the story. It’s a better flow when they go at the end.

While I could appreciate the scientific terms overall, sometimes they didn’t flow with the rest of the sentence/narrative.

—I might have missed a part—but was it not until Chapter 9: More Company that Puddin’ was introduced as a female? I might have missed a female descriptor earlier on. Otherwise, it seemed strange given all she did up to that point to not let the reader know she was female.

The end of the story actually made me think of the movie “Us.”
