Damn!!!
Just... damn!

DAMN!!!

Edward (Eddy) Lorn's recalling of his trauma inducing childhood experiences with malevolence are shattering!
...
I sincerely hope Eddy, the young protagonist in this story, only shares his name with the author.
It is a tale of remembrance of very bad things past told as an exorcism of the survivor's soul.

In a way, I'm glad my imagination is not so good. Such horrifying events as pictured in this novel would haunt me to distraction if my mind created them. Perhaps writing is release.

One of the scenes is definitely in my top five of most disturbing I have read. And I think a lot of it has to do with the way the author reveals it in its full horror. Damn!!!

Not for the squeamish.

5.0 out of 5 stars The summer of lost innocence. Feb. 2 2012
By Karen West - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The summer that Trey was twelve years old, he meet his new neighbor Eddy who was full of live and adventure. Eddy being a natural extrovert introduced Trey to many new experiences.

After one of their adventures, they are harassed by Mack Larson, a police office and respected member of a prominent family. Word soon gets out that Mack has everyone in town watching the boys and they decide to get even. As they witness a traffic stop in which Mack is threatening a young girl, the boys throw cherry bombs in Mack's car.

As things escalate between the boys and Mack, a young woman goes missing. Trey and Eddy soon realize it was the same person they saw with Mack and they were the last people to see her. They become concerned that maybe Mack has something to do with her disapperance. As they make their suspicions know to other people they face Mack head own and it is devastating. The town learns that Mack and his prominent family are not all that they seem to be and things will never be the same in Bay's End.

As Trey writes of that summer we feel all of motions that he has carried with him through the years as he comes to terms with that summer. This is a story of lost friendship and innocence and the healing that can finally take place so he can put the ghosts of the past to rest. As the reader, I become so engrossed in the story that it was a one sitting read. Quick and satisfying and sure to please readers who enjoy well written stories with interesting characters.

I did receive a copy of this complimentary copy of this book but with the promise of an honest review....good or bad.

Bays End: A Gem that's Worth the Read

As a reader, I'm like most people in that I tend to gravitate toward intriguing titles. Normally, Bays End wouldn't get my attention, but since the author, Edward Lorn, took a liking to one of my eBooks, I decided to read his. I'm so glad I did!

Lorn took me on a ride that included some mystery, preadolescent characters that reminded me of my younger days, and horror that lingered in my mind long after I had read the book. Not only are the protagonists likeable, the horror that surrounds them may strike a chord that no reader should ignore. Lorn's smooth prose maintained my attention from cover to cover. One minute I'd laugh while another I'd get angry with the villains. His unique style is refreshing and all the while I read Bays End, I grinned, knowing that I had just found a gem of an author in a sea of new writers competing for readers.

Yes! Bays End is an excellent, yet sad story told by a gifted new voice. I'm looking forward to reading more from Edward Lorn. Count me in, Mr. Lorn, among your newest of fans!

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a reach, but it held my interest. Sept. 11 2012
By John Y - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really do like the style in which this was written. There were a lot of good things in here with decent character development, a good plot, and action that kept moving. There is a scene that was horrific and quite disturbing that really could have been handled differently to make it believable but that's just my take - It is a horror story after all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating and honest. Feb. 11 2012
By Adriana Noir - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found myself drawn immediately into this story and couldn't put it down. Trey's voice and story were so captivating that I read the entire book in one afternoon!

Just as the blurb states, this is a story about the innocence of youth and the loss thereof. The events are harrowing, but they unfold in a way that memserizes. This book held traces of the kind of enchanting, bittersweet summer you would read about in classics such as "IT" or "Stand by Me." Much like those tales, you get the sense of impending disaster, but you can't look away.

I laughed, I cried, and when the book came to an end, I felt as if I too had lost a part of myself within those pages. This is a must read for lovers of any genre. Definitely looking forward to reading more from this author!
