    One thought on “Rust: Season One”

    1. Christopher Ruz is just one of those authors that totally speaks to me and my reading style and habits; I can't give any higher praise than that.I love his work, and I thoroughly enjoy his visions that he shares with the readers. I enjoy the settings he creates, the imagery he paints, the prose he uses to convey that imagery, and the characters that populate these nightmare stories.Personally, while this book series is wickedly enthralling to me, and is also what he is best known for, (and right [...]

    2. It is amazing. It’s got this wicked Lovecraft feel, with a big ol' side of the Yellow King, freaky disease and infestations, and disturbing, visceral, brutal violence. It’s weird and unsettling in all the right ways. You connect with the characters fairly easily. The shock and confusion Kimberly feels upon waking in Rustwood is quite palpable. And it's so terribly, hideously clear that there is nothing natural or normal about the town. There are things hidden everywhere. Unseen horrors in ev [...]

    3. This one surprised me, in the best way. I don't want to go too far into it, but this balances the future promise of more intrigue and suspense with the fact that it is a story in and of itself well.I was constantly questioning, always on the edge of my seat and (now this is key!) I never felt cheated by the way it was told. I was fine with not knowing answers (though I wanted them so damned much!), because of the masterful balance in this book. Looking forward to Season Two!

    4. I feel like this book was only part of the book, nothing was resolved. It's a good story, but I don't know how much more I need to read to have resolution.

    5. I was excited to read Rust because I've always thought that Christopher Ruz's voice was made for horror. Horrific imagery leaks through in bits and pieces in his other speculative fiction, and he has propensity to get very personal with thoughts and desires, as well as hold nothing back from a character's raw experience, even at the expense of making the reader uncomfortable.All I can say is that I was not disappointed. Horror is one of those love/hate genres for me-if done well it can be amazin [...]

    6. First off, I need to say I received a copy in exchange for a fair and honest review. So here we go.I'm pretty picky when it comes to spelling and grammar errors in self-published books - it spoils my reading. Well the good news is, I didn't find any - so top marks there.In general I found Rust: Season One to be well written in terms of structure, character and scene description. It makes for a good read and it cracks along at a decent pace. I kept on wanting to know what happened next - which I [...]

    7. Pleasantly surprised by this one! Indies can be super hit and miss and the premise for this one seemed simplistic. What indies are great for, though, is subverting your expectations.Rust opens quite strongly, it's good a good hook and Kimberley was quite likeable. What made this book rate so strongly though was how it developed. Straight off the bat you've got a fish out of water tale, you've got a woman who's plucked out of her life and can't get home. No idea if she's dead or where is is or wh [...]

    8. Rust is the perfect blend of riveting storytelling, action, adventure, and surrealistic world building. Reading it reminded me of the beginning scenes in David Lynch's Blue Velvet. And, like Blue Velvet, this book is not for those who are squeamish. I also recommend those who suffer from OCD related feelings of being tainted or unclean steer clear of this series.Christopher Ruz does an amazing job of storytelling. His character building is excellent. There are few authors who can superbly build [...]

    9. After reading this book, I can say that it sets up a very interesting premise and that I will be happy to check out Season 2 to see how the story progresses. The town of Rustwood gives me a "Welcome to Nightvale" vibe though a much more serious version.Yes it does end on a cliffhanger but luckily Season 2 has already been released.If you enjoy horror, especially the gruesome, creepy kind with a mysterious setting I would definitely recommend this book.Not for the faint-hearted.

    10. I loved this book.It tells the story of a woman who finds herself in a strange town with no idea of how she got there, or memory of her life in the town. The setup reminds me of the Prisoner TV series or Wayward Pines, but this book throws in some really dark horror into it (think HP Lovecraft) to create some terrifying scenesIts the first part of a trilogy and the ending sets things up nicely for the sequels. I cant wait to read them

    11. This one gets a 4.5 stars from me. It was awesome!! I haven't read straight up horror in awhile and I loved the heck of out this. Chris does dark and horrific SO well and I can't wait for the next installment. Speaking of, if I was a crueler person I'd mark down to 4 stars because of where he left season one hanging. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS. Here's hoping we don't have to wait too long to find out ;-)

    12. Loved this!The characters are absolutely magnetic, the story sucks you right in to the world. Pacing is magnificent as well. Can't wait to read the rest!

    13. the only disappointing thing is that that this is only the first installment and I don't have any idea when the next part is going to be released.
