Dread by Jeff Wade. This is a creepy, creepy story. Don’t read it home alone or at night! This is the story of 2 brothers Frank & Patrick who go in a cave to explore. What happens in the cave is not clear but it seems as if Frank is stuck in there with dead bodies and body parts. He wakes up or so he thinks to hitting his head on rock, as he rolls to the side its also rock. He’s in a rock casket!!! He keeps thinking this is a dream and then his mind starts playing tricks on him making him think it wasn’t a dream. He has reoccurring memories but he can’t piece them all together. This is a short scary story that I read in one sitting. Its a scary rollercoaster ride!
Dread by Jeff Wade
Dread was gripping and somewhat terrifying read. The author immediately pulls you in with his fluid writing style. The story itself captures you and won’t let you go until the end. This book was a short read but I highly recommend it. I felt as if I were living out the main characters situation with every page. I was torn with the decisions to be made. The description of each setting was easy to visualize. I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading more from this Author.
Woah! This short story packs a lot of fear, confusion, and just plain DREAD into it! As the first book I have read by Jeff Wade I was unsure what to expect. However with a title like Dread, and a cover that this book has I knew it wasn’t going to be my usual happy ending, love story! There were no rainbows and no unicorns in this story.
However there was a lot to think about in this story.
“There is no reply, as is God’s nature. He only sets the wheels in motion; how we choose to steer this runaway roller coaster is up to us…”
Wade seems to be a good writer. I would recommend this story and look forward to reading more from him.

Dread by Jeff Wade is a thriller/horror suspense short story. This story was horrific in its telling and my skin still crawls at times. The emotional elements of this story are off the chart and if it doesn’t leave you wondering… well, you haven’t read it thoroughly through. Jeff Wade is a scary writer and doesn’t a chilling job of delivering something that hides in the recesses of the mind that many may wish to avoid.

The Good Neighbors by Kiersten Modglin was a gripping psychological thriller, that had me hooked from start to finish.
Have you ever sat at the end of a book and just went, what the hell… what the hell? That was me, full on, not really comprehending how the author led me by the nose. This book was even told in dual POV and still managed to mislead you and catch you off guard. Again, what the hell?… (These are good, what the hells, BTW)
At first this book read like you’re normal romance, opens pretty clean, meet the creepy neighbours and what not. But then things got crazy, I mean, there is one scene were I’m like, that just happened, that really just happened. I felt for Harper, and it really shows you how things can get out of hand in an instance. It also shows the difference in loyalties, temptation and how when two people are presented with the same situation, that there are two totally different outcomes. Pretty freaking amazing if you ask me.
I can go one and on, but even if i get into character pros and cons, I might spoil something, as everything is so intertwine that one small thing might ruin the magic of this mine twisting thriller. Cause when you get to that plot twist/bomb, you’re not going to see it coming, and you’re going to be sitting there going, what the hell!?
So overall, yes, I loved this book, and yes I am going to be checking out more books by this crazy author, and yes, this book gets my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval.

Dread by Jeff Wade is a short psychological, horror story. This story starts with Frank wakes up and feels like he is in a coffin but what is really going on? I really liked the level of description and the depth of the story especially considering the length of the story. The story has twists and turns to keep me on the edge of my seat while I was reading. This was a good read and I read it in one sitting. I look forward to picking up more from this author in the future.

Wow, what a read! This read will totally have you on a rollercoaster. It is a well written, action-packed read that will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time with the twists and turns that continuously have you turning the pages for more. This is a psychological thriller that at times is so believable that you think you are experiencing what the characters are at the same time, as though you are really there.
This is a quick read but is defiantly not lacking in action, imaginative descriptions and real emotions. I’m surprised I enjoyed this book as much as I did as I don’t normally read a lot of this genre, but boy oh boy do I recommend this read! You will not want to miss it.

Dread by Jeff Wade
So this is my first read by this author and I’m just not sure LOL This book scared the tar out of me, I tried really hard to keep up with what was going on and what was real and what was a dream, and what was a flashback…I had to reread a couple times just to stay straight and I think I did.
This is labelled a thriller and it contained everything a thriller should in my opinion. The cover was enough to scare me but it was also enough to make me give this book a try. I do wish it had been a bit longer or even gave us an epilogue because I cant even use my imagination for where this would go next. Was any of it real? Did it all have some sort of deeper meaning and I’m just missing it? I have no clue but I will say that yes I will read more from this author, the writing was terrific and although I don’t normally read these kinds of books it was kind of nice going outside the box.

Well oh well… where shall I start with this. I suppose it’s worth a mention that Jeff Wade was a completely new author to me when I stumbled upon this twisted psychothriller. I knew nothing about the writing that would be between the cover that so intently drew me into reading this. I didn’t read the blurb I just dove right in and was so stinking thrilled that I did!
Dread takes the reader and thrusts you into the creepy and devilish world of Frank. While reading I will admit I was quite confused at times. However, when the story came to the conclusion that everything fell into place and I could see this was all a part of the story, believing that Jeff Wade wrote this thriller in a completely fresh way that sent my brain into a frenzy whilst reading. A truly wonderful thing in the end.
There is another little snippet of a story included in this book. I will say it seems that it needs more, but again I am thinking this is all the way Jeff Wade spins his stories. I look forward to seeing what else will come from him, and if we will get more of the second story in the future. Definitely a five star read though, that I can’t wait to reread the next time I need a bit of thrill!
I give Dread by Jeff Wade, 5 stars.
Frank keeps waking up from crazy nightmares. Or are they memories? And where is he? He should be in bed, but he feels like he’s entombed in stone. Follow along it slowly comes back to him. Or does it?
This is a horror/suspense short story that fits its title perfectly. You are kept on the edge of your seat, not really knowing just what is happening, but needing to find out more. At the same time, you’re ready to hide under the covers, dreading what may come next. The short story creeped me out and I absolutely loved that. I have such a hard time finding horror that will do that to me. This is my first time reading this author and I am now hooked. The story is only about 50 pages, so you can’t build too much of the character in that time, but the author has still given us a good idea at the kind of man he is. The author could have completely ignored that and made his main character flat, the story itself carries the book. He did not go that route however and makes a good book superb. This book will leave you questioning much, including your sanity, but that is the best part. Please give us more!
If you like a quick horror/suspense book that will get your pulse racing, this book is for you.
