Margery and Enid live alone in their parents’ home Years before a fatal car accident claimed the lives of both their mother and their father Margery is certain that her sister Enid a talented artist is destined for better things in life She is displeased that she remained in town and worked with the mentally ill at a place for the criminally insane Things get worse for Margery when Enid brings home Arne Horsfall for an overnight stay as part of his rehabilitation Margery can’t help feeling there is something wrong with Arne Then in the night Mr Horsfall vanishes and evil blossoms within Margery and Enid’s lives John Farris was born in 1936 and is an American writer He boasts a large list of published novels and short stories His short story We All Scream was adapted into film as part of the Master’s of Horror collection in 2007 His novel Fiends was published in 1990 I have such mixed feelings about Fiends The content is crisp and clean and yet things feel to straight forwards The reader can always tell what will come next What I liked was the atmosphere for the first several chapters that introduce us to Arne’s past Margery’s character feels a little shallow in places however remains true throughout the course of the novel I struggled with the ‘fiends’ of the novel That felt at places almost too human and not at all frightening In fact in several places I sympathised with them For some reason it just didn’t feel right Also I found it hard to believe in several sections that Margery didn’t die after being put through extreme scenes that would see most normal human beings dead Gore is kept to a minimum but does not subtract from the content some thinks work just as well without excessive goreAll in all I think three is a fair rating An entertaining novel and yet lacking the true thrills I was craving

Fiends author John FarrEes them from their ancient gravesNo no one is safe no one from the unwashed Children of Eve. A solid readMr Farris did a nice job with this It would pair nicely with Salem's Lot The only reason I didn't give it four stars is that the end was a bit choppy
