HASH(0xa2886cb4) out of 5 stars A bleeding heart is of no help to anyone if it bleeds to death. - Frederick Buechner Oct. 1 2013
By Cheryl Stout - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed "Born to Bleed" but it had nowhere near the devastating impact that The Summer I Died (The Roger Huntington Saga, Book 1) had on me.

"Born to Bleed" is well worth reading, don't get me wrong. Roger is back and he has to be the unluckiest guy in creation. After the terrible, gruesome things that happened in book one, he finds himself and others in another life-threatening no-holds-barred situation.

But while "The Summer I Died" felt all too real, this time around felt like a story. A good story but a story.

I understand there is to be a Book 3 in the Roger Huntington saga and I will read it. I just hope it is more like "The Summer I Died." Brutal, shocking, realistic but with humor and another protagonist for Roger to play opposite. Hope that makes sense.

HASH(0xa2886f00) out of 5 stars Born To Bleed March 29 2012
By R. Moschgat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Born the Bleed", takes place 10 years after "The Summer I Died".

The main character Roger has since moved to California and now paints for a living.
Setting out to start his latest piece of art soon turns into yet another nightmare.
The girl he has a crush on and her fiance are kidnapped and Roger sets out to rescue them. Little does he know that things will soon spiral out of control and he will once again find himself in another violent and bloody situation.

"Born To Bleed" was a quick, yet exciting read. The violence has been toned down some from the first book but there are still some pretty messed up things going on.
I can't wait to see where Ryan takes Roger next. Here's to hoping we don't have to wait too long to find out!

HASH(0xa2886ec4) out of 5 stars I see the potential now Dec 11 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
When I first read the first book I was blown away. The novel could have easily been a single book and not turned into a series. I wondered how the first book could possibly be followed by a second. Does Roger run into serial killers and sadists just on a whim? I almost stopped reading because of this absurd concept. However, I actually grew to like Roger more in this book. His character was more developed and interesting. The ending clarified the concept and I can now see the series thing working.
Like others before me have noted, the first book was much better. This book is definitely worth reading because of the new Roger and his possibilities.
HASH(0xa28894bc) out of 5 stars Not quite as good as the first book in the series, but still shouldn’t be passed up. March 23 2015
By S. Jordan - Published on Amazon.com

As several other reviewers before me have mentioned, I didn’t like this second book in the series nearly as much as I liked “The Summer I Died” (which was absolutely phenomenal and would be nearly impossible to top). It was still a very well-written piece of splatter horror, just not quite on par with TSID in my opinion. I finished TSID just 3 days prior to starting “Born to Bleed”, so in hindsight maybe I should have left a little more time in between books so that the first one wasn’t so fresh in my mind. I’m not sure if that would have made a difference in my opinion or not.

With TSID, I found every sick and twisted moment to be completely believable; even as intensely graphic and horrifying as it was, I felt it really could happen in real life. With “Born to Bleed”, however, I found it not quite as convincing. For example, some of the conversations between Roger and the bad guys during the heat of the moment seemed a bit impractical; I couldn’t imagine even the biggest bad-ass on the planet having such banter and general chit chat with his torturers as Roger was having. I understand that since Roger had already survived some extremely intense torture ten years earlier (as depicted in TSID) that the author was attempting to portray Roger’s “been there, done that” mentality. But still, I just found it a little hard to believe that his brain would even be able to formulate such witty comebacks while his extremities were being mutilated beyond recognition. Also, the end of the book started taking on a less believable / more paranormal theme. I have nothing at all against the paranormal genre, I just wasn’t expecting it here since TSID hadn’t really gone this route. That’s about when my thoughts started turning from “that’s some horrifying realistic s***” to “that’s just getting a bit silly”. The main reason I love the splatterpunk genre so much is because I can imagine the stuff really happening and that’s what makes it so frightening, but when it started down the paranormal road it took away a great deal of the terror, at least for me.

You should definitely read “The Summer I Died” prior to reading this book as there are many references to the happenings of ten years ago that help set the stage and provide important background for “Born to Bleed”. I believe the author is currently working on the third installment in this series which I’m definitely looking forward to reading. I’m just hoping he sticks to the more realistic, nightmare-inducing theme of TSID with the new one.

HASH(0xa2889270) out of 5 stars After reading The summer I died, I was excited ... Aug. 21 2014
By Loretta - Published on Amazon.com

After reading The summer I died, I was excited to read the sequel. But it did not live up to the expectations set from the first book. Towards the end it felt more of a transitional book then an actual continuation.
