Review: Thalo Blue by Jason McIntyre

Synopsis by Goodreads:  A young man on the brink of true adulthood experiences the trauma of his life when a trespasser breaks into his home. Sebastion Redfield and the psychiatrist assigned to help him recover from the break-in begin to unravel a more disturbing truth about his ordeal: that someone or some thing has been hunting him.

I love to read anything that will scare me to death. Mystery, thrillers anything that gives me the heebie jeebies.  This was by far the right book for me to pick.  It was a combination of reading something from Mr. Stephen King and watching Nightmare on Elm Street.  The never knowing whats around the next corner or what is going to happen with each page you turn.  

Sebastion Redfield is being hunted, and haunted. Hunted by "The Theif" and haunted by the memories of his past.  After a horrific attack, Sebastion (Zeb) is assigned a psychiatrist to help him recover from his attack, but as they start the process it starts to reveal something more sinister and they realize this was not just a random attack.  Not only is he trying to come into his adulthood,  he has a condition, a "Special Gift" his mother calls it. The amazing way Jason McIntyre describes how Sebastion see's the world through his eyes is brilliant.  Through color and sounds it is interesting, intriguing, and  he takes you right into Sebastion's (Zeb) world and mind

Just when you thought you knew what was going to happen next, Jason threw a twist and turn you absolutely did not see coming.  It was a book that had me gasping out loud, it haunted me, scared me, intrigued me made me laugh and made me cheer on Sebastion on his quest to unravel the mystery of the person hunting him, it had all the violence and gore you would expect from a great mystery/thriller novel. I recommend Jason's book to anyone who loves being scared.    If you want to see more watch the trailer. 


Born on the prairies, Jason McIntyre's observation of vibrant characters and vivid surroundings help populate the worlds inside his stories. Before his time as a writer, editor and communications professional, he spent several years as a graphic designer and commercial artist. 

His novel "On The Gathering Storm" is cited by readers as an 'uncomfortably thrilling' read. Some tell tales of fainting spells, vomiting and self-mutilation as they read the harrowing ordeal of Hannah Garretty.

Currently, Jason is hard at work on a follow-up novel series about "The Night Walk Men". His current full-length novel in release is the suspense-mixed-with-coming-of-age thriller, THALO BLUE. No word on any faintings just yet.
