Présentation de l'éditeur

Frank Hinkle is thrilled when he is unexpectedly released from prison, but after a few days in his hometown he’s going to wish he had stayed safely behind bars.

Things have changed in Rook Mountain, Tennessee, since Frank went away. His brother Jake has been missing for seven years, a fact no one bothered to share with Frank. His fun-loving buddy Will is now a somber man known for his violent enforcement of the town’s bizarre new laws. Frank’s sister-in-law Christine has a freezer chest containing a collection of illegal objects and a severed head.

As Frank will soon learn, the only thing worse than being in Rook Mountain is being outside of it. Outside of town is where the Unfeathered sing their terrible song and wait for night to fall.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Horror, Mystery, Fantasy, Fun Fun Fun - and well written, too! 29 avril 2014
Par Carol Kean - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Here is one of the best insults in all of novels or movies:

"In another time and another place, you could have been great. But you never get out of your own way. You have all these ideas brewing in there and no clue what to do with them. You lack the resolve, the confidence to do something special. You have original ideas, but you lack originality. You are completely predictable."

Somehow the ring of authenticity in that insult stings. Note to self: quick, quick, forget your own unfinished novels and get lost in this crazy fictional world that P.T. Hylton has created like some scary-very resort that tourists can go visit. Normally the word "horror" paired with "genre" keeps me from even reading the synopsis, but when John L. Monk added “Regulation 19” to his Awesome Indie list, I knew I had to visit the creepy little town of Rook Mountain myself. It was quite the vacation. Whenever life threatens to seem a little mundane, I treasure the ancient Chinese curse, "May you live in exciting times." Or interesting times. I know exactly what this local means: "The great thing about this place is that nothing crazy ever happens. The downside is that nothing crazy ever happens." When things do get crazy, it's human nature to wish for our old, uneventful lives.

We first view the town from the top of Rook Mountain and its unique grassy balds--blunt rounded mountain tops covered with dense vegetation--baffling, because scientists couldn't agree on the lack of trees. "Just another damn Rock Mountain mystery" to add to the list. While others migrated to cities like Chicago, Denver and Phoenix, the locals have treasured their quiet town since the days of Daniel Boone. But there were no huge, singing, people-eating birds in Boone's day.

The story opens with Frank being offered a free pass out of jail if he can help locate his missing brother Jake. For the past nine years Frank had no news of anything outside the prison so he didn't know his brother had been been charged with murder and gone missing for seven years. His liberators warn that everything is different, but it's hard to get anyone in town to explain how or why. His brother's wife has remarried, and Will tells him,

"March 27th, 2014, we went to bed and everything was normal. We woke up on the 28th and everything had changed."

"Changed how?" Frank asked.

"People were dead. Lots of people."

Hylton does something amazing with this novel: he shifts back and forth in time, narrating from multiple points of view, and he makes it work. He takes us back to that landmark day when life changed. A naked man named Zed dropped into town from out of nowhere; then the nightmarish "Birdies" descended, and only Zed knew how to stop them. With the mesmerizing power of the Pied Piper, he secures the town's safety. Just one catch: nobody can leave town. Step across the boundary line, and a Birdie will immediately come to eat you. Also, everyone must abide by Regulations meant to keep them all safe. Each little rule gradually robs the freedom of each resident, while fear of breaking the rules has them turning each other in or even punishing fellow locals with death. If it sounds crazy, read the novel. And some history books about these things happening in real life. Graves and prisons are filled with millions who opposed trivial, annoying little rules and petty tyrants.

But this is not a cautionary tale. It could be, but it's also a thriller, mystery, nightmare, adventure, and great escapist fun. Just beware, squeamish readers among us, that plenty of the most real-life kind of horror is mixed in with the fun. During a sort of Boy Scout trek up the mountain, a citizen and leader enforces Regulation 18* by murdering someone who was trying to leave town. "A life had been taken out of the world in a wholly unnatural way. The laws of the universe, both the laws of nature and the laws of morality, had been broken....He saw looks of shock, horror, revulsion, and terror. There was even a look of awe from (one of the children). But they were all present behind their eyes. Whatever feelings they had about what had just happened, none of them were going to lose it. At least not now." I love that line: they were present behind their eyes. Look at photos of Holocaust survivors, or anyone with PTSD, and the phrase makes sense.

"There was no shame in what we did here," the executioner assures the boys. "We protected ourselves. We protected our families. We did our duty, no more and no less. Everyone understand?"

Those words have been spoken too many times throughout human history.

Line after line of this novel is engaging, memorable, and well written (see my publicly shared highlights or my blog review at carolkean dot wordpress dot com). Finding competent writers shouldn't be so difficult, but as a reviewer who starts and casts aside a thousand books a year, I can assure you that Regulation 19 is a rare treat. Is it flawless? Of course not. Are there plot holes? Certainly. All books require willing suspension of disbelief. Some of the unexplained issues in this novel will likely make sense when we read the sequel. November 2014? Seriously, P.T., you're making your fans wait that long?

* We never do learn what the newest Regulation, 19, really is. And I may be wrong about which Regulation prohibits leaving town. I hunted for the number and realized it really doesn't matter. Read the book.

An absolutely engaging thriller! Phenomenal character development that makes you feel like you grew up in the circle of friends at the core of this book. There are plenty of twists and turns. Every time you think you know what will happen it twists again proving you wrong until the very end. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read that will keep them on the edge of their seat!

I can't honestly remember the last time I finished a book and was so excited about a new author. Regulation 19 is not your average tale of things that go bump in the night or shady drifters with agendas. It is well written and thought out and reminiscent of the early works of Stephen King, when ideas were fresh and still frightening. Regulation 19 is an excellent example of a small town held in the grip of the unknown. I don't give spoilers in my reviews so I can't reveal many details of what happens other than to say this is like reading your favourite Twilight Zone episode in book form. You will find yourself cheering for the rebels and hoping, somehow, that all will come out unscathed from the unknown terror which has taken over their lives in ways they can't understand. When the pieces start to fall into place things are explained and revealed. While this book is part of a series, enough is wrapped up that doesn't leave the reader grasping for more and hating a cliff hanger. While I can't wait to read the next book, I don't feel as if I am left missing a chapter,

All in all if you like horror where the human spirit triumphs and enjoy a good puzzle, this may be the book for you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful debut of a new author 14 avril 2014

PT does a wonderful job with his first book. Easy to read, moves along fast, movie like at times, a bit of wodunit, a lot of mystery and suspense, surprising twists and turns, strong characters both men and women, and cliffhangers.

A great start to what may turn out to be a fun series. My kudos to PT for writing a fantastic book. Great cover too.

PT has also recorded this process of writing this book over on youtube. Check it out: [...]

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Regulation 19--Put Down Whatever Else You're Reading and Read This Instead 3 juillet 2014
Par Jennifer Donohue - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Stop reading reviews and go read this book. Seriously. Best book I've read in ages. This story is a good blend of quasi post-apocalyptic meets fantasy. With straight-forward writing, the author introduces a lot of story questions and then later in the same book...reveals the answers!! So many books these days are parts of series and instead of doing an honest job with a book, many authors just try to set up as much intrigue as possible so you buy book two. This book actually leaves you feeling satisfied with the story AND you want to read the next book. Speaking of which...the only thing that bugs me about this book is that I can't read the next book right now. I actually signed up for the author's newsletter (which I never do) so I won't miss the second book when it's released. Yes, it's that good.
