House of Blood

(The first book in the House of Blood series)
A novel by

From the acclaimed author of DEPRAVED, THE KILLING KIND, and DARKENED comes the first digital edition of his debut novel, HOUSE OF BLOOD.

A group of young friends returning from a Key West vacation gone horribly wrong takes a wrong turn off a highway in the east Tennessee mountains, entering a dark realm that is both of the natural world and beyond it. A night of terror ensues, with some members of the group eventually arriving at an eerily imposing manor house. But the house is not a sanctuary from the horrors surrounding them.

This is the HOUSE OF BLOOD.

Here is where the Master of this dark realm resides, presiding over an empire of evil. The unsuspecting young travelers face a night of torture, degradation, and surrender to dark desires. Who among them, if any, will survive the night?


"Bryan Smith's DARKENED is a full-throttle pedal-to-the-metal ride straight into the heart of the apocalypse. Deeply disturbing and absolutely riveting. Highly recommended."--Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of THE KING OF PLAGUES and PATIENT ZERO

"I look forward to spending a weekend with a new Bryan Smith book the way I used to look forward to spending a weekend with a new Richard Laymon novel. In my view, there isn't higher praise than that."--Brian Keene, author of The Rising.

"Let me unequivocally state that Bryan Smith creates the most fantastic, sick, demented and twisted characters in horror fiction today."--Famous Monsters of Filmland
