Hexad - Andrew Lennon & Matt Hickman   5/5  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015URXLXK?keywords=Hexad&qid=1445318305&ref_=sr_1_3&s=digital-text&sr=1-3

     Sometimes you pick up a title that features a couple of new authors and you begin to see a pattern emerge. One writer is actually better than the other and after awhile you notice that the other writer is carrying the entire book on his shoulders. Ever have that experience? It's not pretty and if anything you wonder how these two people got together in the first place. Was it an idea that they both had and figured fuck it; Let's do a book together! It would be almost as painful as having sex with Rosie O'Donnell. It's a moment you immediately regret and wish you could take back. The book game has changed a lot over the last few years and anyone with a keyboard can self publish a damn book. Widens the landscape for a whole lot of shit sandwiches.

     I'm here to tell you that with Hexad you have nothing to worry about. This is by far one of my favorite horror novels and as I read it I began to see why these two work so well together. There's a nice balance to this book and each story has something for everyone. You like weird and gross there's a story for that, you like stories about a guy that will do anything to protect his family? We got that too. What we have are two guys trying to make a name for themselves and what a fine way to announce your arrival. When you talk about new horror and what types of authors are going to take it to the next level I place them both in my top five.

     They have a style all their own and while Hexad may be a short read, it packs one helluva punch. These are a stories that cover a wide spectrum of horror and they both have talent. I kept waiting for one of them to deliver a bad story but that just didn't happen. Each story is well written and shows that these guys will write about anything and nothing is off limits This is a collection of horror stories that cater to the horror fan. Unapologetic and a lot of fun to read. This right here is exactly why I'm a horror fan and once you read this you'll thank me.
