Book Review: Monsters All the Way Down by Ryan McSwain

Monsters All the Way Down by Ryan McSwain
Genre: Adult (Thriller)
Date Published: September 5, 2014
Publisher: Pithos Publishing

After a routine DNA background check, Brennan Wade is on the run for murders he does not remember committing. Pursued by a shadow agency, he fights to clear his name and catch the true killer. Brennan forges an uneasy alliance with Joan Runciter, the only woman to survive an attack, and together they delve into a world of secret history and ancient horror. As the body count rises and his true nature is revealed, Brennan must decide if the world's salvation is worth his own corruption.

Monsters All the Way Down contains an intriguing blend of Philip K. Dick's mind-bending paranoia and H. P. Lovecraft's cosmic horror. Ryan McSwain uses complex characters and familiar ideas to craft a story full of twists to keep you guessing right up to the end and beyond.

Monsters All the Way Down by Ryan McSwain was a very different type of book from what I usually read. The characters were ridiculously well fleshed out. I found myself sympathizing with almost all of them. .almost. There were twists and turns. Some I saw coming, but there was a completely unexpected aspect that I didn't see. This story was surprising, mysterious, and morbid. Each scene was written in a way you could clearly see what was going on no matter how horrific. It could easily be made into a series, but this book was such a satisfying read, I kinda hope the author keeps it a stand alone novel.

Monsters All the Way Down by Ryan McSwain was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Ryan McSwain lives in Amarillo, Texas, with his wife and their two children. Ryan spends his days caring for his children, writing, and looking for that next novel, comic book, TV show, film, or album that will give him the brain tingles. It is unlikely he is standing behind you at this very instant, but you should turn around just to check.

His debut novel, Monsters All the Way Down, is available now.

Ryan loves to talk with readers, so if you have any questions, he'd love to hear them. It's your dime.
