This week’s choice is…
Nothing to do with The Shining, but an axe is definitely needed on board this ship! (Although, Stephen King is mentioned…)
Blood Cruise: A thrilling summer chiller from the Swedish Stephen King
‘I will never set foot on a cruise ship again!’ – Åsa Larsson, bestselling author of The Second Deadly Sin and Until thy Wrath Be Past
On the Baltic Sea, no one can hear you scream.
Tonight, twelve hundred expectant passengers have joined the booze-cruise between Sweden and Finland. The creaking old ship travels this same route, back and forth, every day of the year.
But this trip is going to be different.
In the middle of the night the ferry is suddenly cut off from the outside world. There is nowhere to escape. There is no way to contact the mainland. And no one knows who they can trust.
Welcome aboard the Baltic Charisma.
‘Blood Cruise is terrifying and terrifying real, a must-read for fans of Stephen King and John Ajvide Lindqvist’ – Elizabeth Hand, author of Generation Loss and Hard Light

MY FIRST THOUGHTS
I originally featured this as one of my Can’t Wait Wednesday specials! Here’s what I said!
Well, I’ve never been on a cruise ship and it’s not likely I’ll want to go on one after reading this! haha!
This could definitely be a brilliant horror film, although I do like the way we get inside the characters minds and find out about their backgrounds and what sort of person they are, before all hell breaks loose, so to make that come across well they’d need to do plenty of flashbacks! Yeah, in fact, just ask me to direct it – I know what this movie needs!!!
Am I loving it?
Hell yeah! This is just what I’d hoped it would be, and so really well done, and I don’t mean like steak, although, there was quite a lot of blood thirsty chomping going on some really rare steaks…
It’s a huge book, but I enjoyed it so much I read it super-fast! I’ll add my review up here shortly.
Don’t you love a book that beats your already high expectations?
