If you’re sick of zombies, done with serial killers and have had it up to here with vampires, check out The Eaton (currently rated 4.5/5 stars and priced at $2.99) for some classic-style, old school scares in a debut novel from promising new Horror author John K. Addis.
Spanning over 100 years of mid-Michigan history, The Eaton tells the story of Sam Spicer, a young entrepreneur who purchases the dilapidated Michigan Central Railroad Depot in Eaton Rapids with the dream of opening a hot new martini bar. But when he and his friends discover an abandoned underground hotel directly beneath the property, they must discover what happened to the original guests—before their own time runs out.
The Eaton is the debut novel of John K. Addis, and combines a flashback-based narrative structure with the gruesome style of ’80s horror classics, creating a unique new voice critics are calling “fresh, original, and truly terrifying.”
One Amazon reviewer says:
“…once they get into the lobby you feel as if you are viewing the place with your own eyes. They take you floor to floor, room to room. I loved the floor with the baths. Everything that happens in between just builds the suspense more. The characters are interesting but there is always more to learn about each one. What is after them is full of hate and just like in “The Thing” can take different forms. Can you trust anyone? Once they find a book with notes from an original guest they begin to understand and hope for a way out. But can they find it in time? This book kept my interest all the way through and I recommend it. A very good read.”
