The Doorkeepers book. I am a big fan of Graham Masterton's horror, crime and now ALL his books. He's proven himself to be a versatile and skilled author to me. The Doorkeepers was much better than I had anticipated and one of my favourite books I've read this year.

Can I help yew? asked the girl behind the marble-topped desk. She wore a tight beige cardigan and brown plastic combs in her hair. I don’t have an appointment. I don’t have an appointment re me a minute. Mr Mor-dant? I don’t know about thayt. Mr Mordant only sees people by appoint-munt. All the same, maybe you could tell him I’d like to see hi. .The girl looked Nancy up and down, and then sniffed. I suppose I could try. You’re wasting your time, though. Mr Mordant’s always up to his eyes. He’s up to his eyes?.

C’est la vie. You can still meet us at the Corner House later. I’ll try. But if I can’t, look, I’ll see you tomorrow, OK?

When Josh goes to London to find out about his sister brutal murder the last thing he expects is another reality. This book is a mixture horror, fantasy, mystery and paranormal all wrapped up in a very enjoyable read.

Masterton has a remarkable imagination, and this time he sets his story in London - or rather, several parallel Londons... Very entertaining!

Masterton is one of those British authors that doesn't get published in America quite as much as he should. Yes, we do get to see his novels from time to time but considering the volume of material that he has produced and the quality of his work, he takes up an amazingly small amount of space on my book shelves. I'm going to have to make it a point to include another novel or two of his in my next Amazon order.

Anyway, THE DOORKEEPERS is yet another excellent novel by Masterton. The story focuses on Josh Winward as he goes to London and tries get some resolution to his sister's death. The problem is that his sister has been living at an address that is 60 years old and working at a factory that doesn't exist. As Josh gets pulled deeper and deeper into the mystery, he discovers that there is more to this world and to any other for that matter.

About two-thirds of the way through, I started thinking that this would be a great novel to continue and have Josh Winward continue to explore. However, five minutes later those thoughts were dashed as the necessary end to the creatures guarding the doors was spelled out. Unfortunately that was also the point where it became predictable and much of the surprise in the ending was removed. Masterton played fair and it wasn't anything that didn't fit the rules of his novel but I wish that the ending didn't become telegraphed as of that point.

Wow! I am a big fan of Graham Masterton's horror, crime and now ALL his books. He's proven himself to be a versatile and skilled author to me. The Doorkeepers was much better than I had anticipated and one of my favourite books I've read this year.

It's hard to review this book without revealing the key secret that makes the plot as good as it is. Once you've had the secret revealed you get a sense of knowing the book is going to take you on a journey into the unknown and that it does indeed!

Julia is an American in London who, well...falls into dire difficulty to say the least. Her story is both harrowing and horrific and will appeal to this readers like me who love a touch of the dark and sinister in their books.

You think you know London? Let me tell you. You don't know this London at all. All boundaries are pushed in this fantastic novel as Julia's brother Josh heads over from the USA to find out more about his sister. He gets a lot more than he bargained for.

The plot is stunningly good, there are so many unusual elements to this book and it's hard to place it in one genre. Crime, mild horror, supernatural, thriller? All of the above really.

I loved the characters in this book. All of them absolutely shine in their own right. There are some heinously evil people in this book that Masterton masterfully portrays so well. Their methods, madness and more makes for disturbing moments at times but nothing short of sheer book escapism.

This book took me to another world and I didn't have a moment of boredom. I raced through this novel which has done fantastic moments of imagery that will stay with me forever. I really loved it and recommend it highly! 5 stars without question.

I received a copy of the book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I don't normally fall for the time travel or parallel universe type of stories for some reason—but after reading my first book by Graham Masterton, The Doorkeepers, I realized how stupid I've been for skipping out on some great literature.

How action-packed this was and how quickly everything passed surprised me. Except, of course, for those truly horrific moments that made you want to close your eyes. But more than anything, you wanted to press on and keep reading to find out what in the world was going to happen!

The past few books' authors I read before The Doorkeepers didn't spend enough time with the characters; Masterton expanded on the characters in this book so much that you feel for each of them in several different (and I mean different) ways. Some truly grotesque ways at that.
While there is a LOT going on in this book—so much that you may need a breather here and there—Masterton never fails to weave everything together. That is miraculous to me considering there are some heavy, touchy elements in this book, and some writers could easily fail at the task and leave some giant plot holes in their wake.

A couple parts were pretty gruesome and made me wince. I almost felt a character's pain at one point and started squeezing my jaw so tight it became sore. I felt a character's deep sorrow, I felt curiosity and anger. I wanted to be swept up and away in these different Londons! I already want to read this book again...
