Infernal Machines is a well-written vintage coming-of-age meets horror novel. From the first pages, it sucks you in, leaving you not wanting to put it down for a second.

Infernal Machines is a well-written vintage coming-of-age meets horror novel. Will Millar does a great job of fleshing out his characters, and building a world without info-dumping. When they were angry, I was angry; when they were sad, I felt the same. These are amazing characters that stick with you even after the novel is over; and that, to me, is the sign of a great writer. Millar's horror is not about monsters-not exactly.

Paulie and Stoner aren't bad seeds; they’re just a little too smart for their own good. They stole their first car in kindergarten, and as for the homemade rocket launcher in Stoner’s garage . . . well, it’s best just not to ask. With 9th grade just around the corner, Paulie and Stoner find themselves on the wrong side of some real bad kids, an older band of white supremacists that go by the name of “Twisted Cross.” When a rumble at a high school keg party turns fatal, it sets off a chain of events that test the limits of Paulie and Stoner’s friendship, and their very sanity. Welcome to Chapel Harbor, a town where everybody buries their secrets deep, and nobody is quite who they seem. A town where the ghost of a serial killer known as The Junkman is rumored to stalk the woods at night, and where an unassuming magic shop and its mysterious proprietor, Arthur Cardiff, may possess the key to an ancient and terrible evil. Packed with hairpin turns and twists that will keep you guessing until the very last page, Infernal Machines is a blood drenched, adrenaline fueled, roller-coaster of a horror story that’s at once a paean to the Pulp Horror classics of the early 80’s and a meditation on the enduring power of friendship.

I'm giving it 4 stars because the story itself is very entertaining and well-written with great characters.
If half stars were allowed (ahem, Amazon) I would lower my rating to 3.5 due to the need for a good editor. Bad editing is a pet peeve of mine, it tends to take me right out of the story, and this was a really good story. A lot of the editing problems were obviously things where the author had planned on switching out a phrase or word for something else, and simply didn't delete the original writing. Anyway. The story reminded me of other great coming of age stories like Stephen King's The Body and Robert McCammon's Boy's Life. Very enjoyable and I'm looking forward to reading more by this author.

I don't normally write book or product reviews on here. Usually, I'm too lazy, but I feel the need to do so here.

I stumbled upon this book by complete accident. The author requested to follow me on Twitter one day. I checked out his profile, decided that he didn't creep me out, and accepted his follow request; in turn, I followed him back. In the days after, I noticed that he was tweeting a lot about his book, and eventually I became curious enough to request a sample read. I was hooked within the first few pages, and devoured the novel within a matter of days. The length of a novel means nothing when the story is gripping.

Infernal Machines is a well-written vintage coming-of-age meets horror novel. From the first pages, it sucks you in, leaving you not wanting to put it down for a second. Will Millar does a great job of fleshing out his characters, and building a world without info-dumping. He made me feel for his characters in a way that I don't necessarily do too often when I'm reading. I wanted to be friends with Paulie and Stoner; I wanted to be with them on this terrifying but exhilarating adventure, and participate in their investigations and hijinks. When they were angry, I was angry; when they were sad, I felt the same. These are amazing characters that stick with you even after the novel is over; and that, to me, is the sign of a great writer.

Millar's horror is not about monsters--not exactly. It's more about how you feel when you face something you don't know or understand. The fear-factor of his novel is subtle, at least in my opinion. You'll find your skin crawling when he describes the destruction of something, but only hints at what might have caused it; or the sinister look on a character's face that disappears an instant later. At other times, it is the actions of the characters that creep you out more than anything else. His writing very much reminds me of Stephen King's work, most notably "The Body" (the novella "Stand By Me" was based on) and "IT."

I really enjoyed this novel, and have been recommending it to all my friends. If you're looking for a good read, I urge you to download the sample and get sucked in like the rest of us! The novel is filled with twists and surprises; just when you thought it's going to go one way, it'll go another, leaving you wondering what's going to happen next! Needless to say, I will definitely be keeping a lookout for Millar's future work.

I had no idea what "vintage horror" was until I bought this book and man, now I wish they made more of it. Think 80s MONSTER SQUAD mixed with a little Joe R. Lansdale and a whole lot of heebie-jeebies. Will Millar does not hold back and keeps the reader coming for more in his debut work. I can't wait to see what this guy pulls out of his hat next!
  • Kemath
Has the energy and vision of a Robert Bloch story. The lovely prose is its own character, describing an incongruent world of menace and illusion. Will Millar is a great voice in a renaissance of horror fiction, and I hope he enjoys the tremendous success he deserves.

This is a page-turner! Want to see more from this new author. If you like real classic horror you will love this.

WARNING. THIS REVIEW CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS.

For the first two thirds or so, this was looking like a thoroughly excellent novel. Well written, likable characters and suspenseful. The book just seemed to get better and better and then it all just fell apart in the final third. There seemed to be a number of ideas running through the book and I expected them to come together in the end but half the ideas seemed to be either forgotten about or were just pointless wastes of pages.

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD.

Early on there is a strange occurrence in the woods. Some kind of alien presence is suggested after a meteor or something lands in the woods. One of the bad kids then gets possessed by a presence that seems to take on the appearance of a swarm of flies. This is touched on very briefly again later and then is completely ignored.

We have a ghost girl who ends up being completely pointless and then there is Markheim. He starts out as a great character but his time line in the story is not made clear, so I didn't know when events were taking place and his connection with Cardiff prior to his nephew's death made no sense.

What was with the ridiculous supernatural train at the end?

Maybe it's just me. The book was so long that I started losing interest a long way from the end. Maybe I missed something.

Would have made a great novel if its length was halved and some of the nonsense was edited out.

Hard to put down! I lived in the Seattle area for 10 years, and Will captures it like Stephen King captured Maine.
