Very impressive introduction to a new to me at least author Not often are there novellas that offer character development, terrific descriptions, atmosphere and originality Bard Constantine did a great job with The Aberration Strong writing, formidable imagination Eerily claustrophobic setting of a factory at night under attack from supernatural forces Can improbably named Guy Mann middle initial presumably T for testosterone save his coworkers from the evil Others or is it all in his mind One b [...]
From the opening scenes, it was clear the author of The Aberration had a powerful vision and direction in which he wished the story to move, and he kept on pace throughout The tension quickly builds as Guy Mann and a group of co workers are trapped in the mill factory with the creatures described as the Others eagerly awaiting any opportunity to breach the locked security doors One moment s weakness, and those creatures flow inside and the battle for survival begins.For Guy, however, it is just [...]
The first word that came to mind was chaos.Chaos, indeed, is what wordsmith Bard Constantine creates when he describes the opening scenes of this tight knit horror thriller I really, truly enjoy Constantine s writing style, and am glad to have found his works online The Aberration is beautifully horrific, even sometimes lyrical in its creepiness Yet it s got blood splatter and dead body splatter galore, a suicide, a near deserted flour mill factory in a freak rainstorm, freakiness in the form o [...]
One of the things I really enjoy about Stephen King s writing is his sense of place He paints his location well from the horror filled neighbourhoods of Castle Rock to the mist shrouded supermarket surrounded by creatures from another dimension Bard Constantine captures that same sense with this novella, in which the inhabitants of a flour mill find themselves trapped by supernatural beings out for their blood Their only hope is one of their colleagues, who is than he seems, and whose returning [...]
I had the pleasure of reading The Aberration by Bard Constantine It s not often that I read horror but after perusing a sample on Wattpad, I was hooked As Bards do, he expertly weaves horror and fantasy into a very enjoyable tale Great character development accompanied by a suspenseful storyline that keeps the reader engaged in every chapter I can t give this work enough praise As a writer, I m a bit envious The fast paced style pushes you through the story faster than you want because then it e [...]
Enjoyed this one Good characters Good story Good Gore Had some ropey B movie monsters near the end but pulled it off.
This is a bloody good read definitely over the 4 star mark for me.
I loved this 21 chapter book The first sentence summed everything up perfectly chaos I liked that the story opened with the police being baffled about the crime scene At the flour mill, an employee jumped to his death They ruled it a suicide Then the story ended with the police confused again This time six dead An explosion Or was there really six people dead You ll have to read the story to find out.I enjoyed that readers got a glimpse of the employees home life before heading in to work It mad [...]
Bard Constantine s THE ABERRATION is an exciting horror story reminiscent of Stephen King s The Mist After one of their co workers apparently commits suicide by jumping off the roof of the building, five people find themselves trapped by a strange torrential rain that seems to be harboring faceless ghouls Guy, who has been experiencing inexplicable dreams in which he battles demons, tries to help the others figure out what s going on before it s too late Michael just wants to get home to girlfri [...]
Awesome new horror writer Read it for free on Wattpad Very impressive.
Mr Constantine sent me a link to his site to qualify for a free ebook of choice, and I went with The Aberration The story is definitely imaginative as the author brings what we can only imagine in our worst nightmares to life His writing skill is nothing short of superior Mr Constantine uses sensory details and beautiful figurative language throughout the book in such a way that is most impressive I was delighted to read such wonderful style The plot itself flows very smoothly, character develop [...]
Chaos reigned from the the first page, it was clear this was going to be an action packed book from the beginning, and I hardly had time to take breath between the action.Guy Mann and his co workers are trapped inside the floor mill with The others faceless creatures who are determined to stop Guy from stopping the Aberration Is Guy as crazy as his co workers think he is, or as he really already done all this before in past lives.I enjoyed the flash backs in the book, I really felt it gave dept [...]
The Aberration Memories of a Century Long Battle of Good and Evil or crazy Mad Man Rating 4 of 5Author Bard ConstantineFormat KindleGuy Mann woke from the dream, or what he hoped was a dream, and stared at his surroundings wondering if he was going mad The spear, the blood, the killing, the evil, and in the waking world the signs and the warning The Aberration is here What did it all mean, and why him Unfortunately, as the storm rolled in trapping Guy and his fellow Mill workers he was about to [...]
The first word that came to mind was chaos.So begins Bard Constantine s, The Aberration, and truer words were never written The flour mill had been decimated and the second shift crew is unaccounted for Chapter 2 flashes back and you meet the second shift and the story continues bringing the book full circle.Is Guy Mann insane And if so, can he still save his co workers and possibly the world from the Aberration Or Constantine has an innate ability to build tension throughout while creating in d [...]
I was very pleased with the way this venture unfolded Initially, I thought the name of the main protagonist Guy Man was a little corny, and naturally assumed that the entirety of this book will be of the same nature but, upon further reading I realized the name was not important but the actions of the character are what drove the story The words flow very well for a horror book Typically, these types of stories tend to bore me by the first 40 pages That was not the case for this book, Bard Const [...]
I won Aberration as a First Reads book I really liked it The story, while short, was fully developed, had a quick pace and held my attention from the beginning I liked the glimpses into characters lives that the author reveals, but I do wish there had been a little bit character development We get the sense of who Michael is and Fran, but we learn almost nothing about Drake, Rob or Gary I liked the character of Guy Mann He reminded me of Steven King s Roland character from the Dark Tower series [...]
I read this by way of an introduction to my Kindle for PC I gave up reading horror a fair while ago, because it was all very much the same I was astounded to find that the author has done a job far and beyond most of what is out there It starts off at a fair pace and just builds in action and energy making it very hard to put down Only the need to sleep and work made me A superb book I would recommend to everyone who likes their horror both inteligent and first class
This book features the manifestation of the horrors of all the characters featured This was or less a 3 star book for me if not for the second last chapter with the part where it was made out to look like it was all Guy s insanity and he was actually a serial killer That part left me with a what the fuck Are you fucking kidding me Expression and I would have given it 5 stars if it had not been for the last chapter All in all, it s a 4 star book.
Constantine deftly tightens the screws in this industrial nightmare Set in a flour processing plant in the lockdown from hell , Guy, the slightly weird employee every establishment seems to have, leads the desperate fight for survival against some truly nasty beings that have poured into our dimension of reality.
This was a win for me This 107 page book had me from the first page to the end I read it in one sitting Very creepy story Was impressed since it was short I will definitely be looking forward to reading Barb Constantine books
This was my first Bard Constantine book and I absolutely loved it.I just could not put it down Almost was late for work one morning because I wanted to read of it before leaving home, lol.I m definitely heading to to see what else he s written.
This is what I would call a tight horror thriller It grabs you right away and keeps you interested Lots of action, good dialogue and a very intriguing concept supporting it all Nice job.
I have no idea how to describe this story However, it was engrossing and interesting.
I really enjoyed this story, pretty much devoured it The flour mill provides an excellent setting for the truly creepy and grotesque monsters that come out of Bard Constantine s imaginative mind Superb use of language, beautiful images.
