The Guild of Fallen Clowns

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
The Haunted Labyrinth of Mirrors was just your average walk-through carnival attraction to most of its visitors. However, for Alan, lurking behind the surface of the mirrored walls was the home of Peepers, the ghoulishly creepy clown spirit and leader of The Guild of Fallen Clowns. In the darkness behind the thin reflective coating, deception tugs at his immortal soul. More

Review by: Roddy J Dryer on Aug. 11, 2013 :
I very much enjoyed this book. While one might look at this and think it'll be too silly or contrived to bother with, I took a chance on that and found out, with pleasant surprise, that this is a fun and enjoyable story.
I found the transition of the main character smart and well-paced, and I particularly liked how the various clowns were put together to represent various issues and fears in one's life.
I'm not giving five stars lightly; this is a good read for anyone wanting to get away from the bogged down mainstream.

Review by: Kale Theker on Sep. 20, 2011 :
This book wasn't at all what I expected. The description and pictures of creepy clowns had me thinking the story would be a freak show of other worldly proportions, where nothing would be based in reality. I looked forward to being taken on that thrill ride as the author promised. Instead, I was treated to a more down to earth reality where outside of the evil spirit clowns, the characters were very believable and real. The author skillfully displayed darkness and strengths in all of us (or maybe just me) in a way that wasn't at all obvious or over the top.

The story starts out strong. Then there are seemingly lost moments where I didn't know where he was going. Don't give up because in short order he pulls all of the elements together and slings you into a sequence of events and hilariously horrific directions that will leave you wanting for more. In the end, I can say I'm happy that this book wasn't what I expected it to be. It was so much more. I hope there's a sequel in the works. I need to know what happens next. I need my creepy clown fix.
