Things turn into a nightmare when the thief witnesses what the seemingly normal family is consuming for dinner… human remains.

Stay Awhile is a gruesome, terrifying novel that is guaranteed to keep readers entertained as well as frightened from beginning to end! Stay Awhile is one of the most incredible horror books that I have ever read; it is unique, intelligent and brilliant with an incredible premise that will keep its readers entertained and engaged from page one! Horror books are difficult books to write, you have to strike the right balance of terror with excitement and the wonderful author of this novel, Anthony Vecchiarello has most certainly done this with his exceptional book. He is a well-accomplished writer in the horror genre and so his work deserves to be read by everybody!

Stay Awhile is a novel which has a dark and thrilling plot; it features many disturbing moments as well as a cannibalistic family that will leave the readers of this story terrified and wanting to sleep with the lights on. Because Stay Awhile features a cannibalistic family, it means that it is an incredibly gruesome, violent assault which is most certainly not for the faint-hearted. Stay Awhile may be a gruesome assault but at the same time, it is genius as well as brazen. Vecchiarello is a daring, talented author who writes in the best tradition of Stephen King; most writers tone down there horror to market it for the mass market… in other words, they try not to scare readers too much! However, Vecchiarello is daring with Stay Awhile, and so I admire him for not shying away from bloody moments the reader encounters. When I read a book in which the author is brave, it makes me love the story so much more because it is a quality in authors which should be applauded. Readers, especially with horror novels, are supposed to feel terrified as well as shocked… readers are meant to have a haunting feeling and so that is one of the many readers why Vecchiarello is a talented, genius writer.

Vecchiarello is a terrific writer who has managed to write an engrossing, captivating horror story that will keep readers entertained which his superb prose and impeccable pacing. As I read Stay Awhile, I felt a sense of urgency… I so desperately needed to finish reading this novel and reach the end and this is all thanks to the author’s talent and ability to hook the reader’s attention from very early on.

The story of Stay Awhile is an incredibly dynamic, unique piece of work; it took my breath away on more than one occasion, thanks to the terrifying plot but also the brilliance of the authors writing. When I read this novel I did not get bored once, I mean, how could I ?! It is an all-consuming horror novel, but the quality of the writing was such an excellent and the plot so intriguing that I did not get bored once. I always measure my likeness of a book on whether I find myself looking at the page number; if I do in fact do this I know that the novel is taking its toll… in other words, it is dragging. However Stay Awhile was different than this as never once did I find myself referring to the page number and that is a sure sign that Stay Awhile is a compelling piece of work that draws the reader in and captivates them to read it quickly and to reach the end of the book very fast.

To summarise my thoughts on Stay Awhile, I would say if you are looking for a unique, horror book that will terrify you on the night of Halloween and the weeks afterwards… or even in general! Then this thrilling book is for you. This gruesome but brilliant book gets Five Stars from me!
