#BlogTour: The Portal by Russell James #Creepy #ItGaveMeTheFear #ProvidedForReview #Gifted #ThePortal @RandomTTours @FlameTreePress

I am delighted to kick off the #BlogTour for The Portal by Russell James.

October is my excuse to indulge in a good horror novel. I love a creepy and scary read! So when Anne sent out the email about The Portal by Russell James it caught my attention immediately.

Book Blurb:

A black speedboat arrives at the small island community of Stone Harbor. Its mysterious passenger, Joey Oates, inspires terror by his very presence. He’s Satan incarnate, back to complete a ritual left unfinished three hundred years ago. A lost talisman called the Portal can open a doorway for the demons of Hell to enter our world. Oates plans to find the Portal, and finish unlocking it.

Former lovers Scott Tackett, family hardware store owner, and Allie Layton, flamed-out Hollywood actress, are about to reconnect after years apart, until they discover the evil growing in town. Only they can stop Oates’s awful plan and save the world from the living nightmares standing ready to crawl out of Hell.

Great synopsis, right?!?!

It reminded me of Supernatural! So obviously I wanted to read it.

The writing was good, the pacing was pretty much what I would expect for the genre. But I think The Portal was a bit too dark for my liking and deals with some difficult themes. I just prefer my horror a bit more ghosts, witches and creepy monsters than real life gore and evil. And The Portal deals with some very EVIL people and themes. That is just my personal preference, if you want a book that will keep you up at night then look no further…

I would describe The Portal as action packed, DARK and Violent. As well as sinister, upsetting and shocking. It needs to be read with the lights on.

I can’t wait to follow the tour and read what everyone else thought of the book – it certainly wasn’t a book that shied away from the darker side of horror.

What is everyone else reading for October?

I received a copy of the book for review from the publisher, which was all arranged by the blog tour organiser – Thank you!
