This book could have benefited from writer s workshop feedback Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an unbiased review. I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review The Carnival has come to town and everyone is eager for a night of fear filled fun The biggest queue is for the Castle of Horrors and once inside, the people must visit every room before they can exit But behind each door, a very real terror awaits and only the strongest will survive.This was a brilliant horror story, one of my favourite ever in this genre I like reading about these scary carnivals but this author manages to do something completely different with a popular concept, turning it into something new and fresh It s not just zombie monsters chasing you through a dark funhouse Behind each funhouse door is a room which depicts a gory waxwork scene involving a supernatural or human monster but when the door closes, the people in the room are transported to a real life version of that nightmare where you need brawn and brains to survive Behind the doors you will find the vampire castle in the middle of nowhere, the mad scientists lab where you are the next experiment, a pack of werewolves trying to get into the castle to eat you, the deadly witch trials where you are to be killed, a mad serial killer at summer camp chasing you through the cabins, a full scale alien invasion in your town, the zombies breaking into the shopping mallto survive you must find a way to defeat each monster and return across country to find the door If you die in these rooms, you die Survive and you are back in the Funhouse with doors to open and only when all rooms have been explored and defeated do the survivors get a chance to escape So you are getting lots of exciting mini adventures within a main story, which I LOVED The author does not waste time on long winded descriptions or massive amounts of background information Instead you are told just enough to understand the characters before you are thrown into the plot and they are put in the Funhouse Character development does occur through the story and interaction with each other, so there is no need for big info dumps or slow scenes, which I hate in horror books There is nothing slow in this book The writing style is uncomplicated and free flowing, the plot moves at rapid speed between the action in each room, hardly giving you time to catch breath and there is the perfect blend of tension, terror and gore All my favourite horror monsters and scenarios are featured here and I enjoyed every single one If you like chainsaw psychos and classic film monsters, you ll love this You just don t quite know what is around the corner or behind the next door Will your favourites survive So was there anything in the book that I didn t like Simply put, no I don t do many 5 star reviews for horror books and I ve read a lot in the genre but this really reserves the accolade It was action packed, full of tension, gory deaths, psychological scares and a wonderful storytelling flair JG manages to combine every element of great horror into one compelling novel This is the second book that I have read of his and it will not be the last I have already ordered my own print copy so I can re read this many times Have I mentioned yet that I totally love this book There is sexual content, mega violence and gore and the usual language you would expect in the genre.I seriously hope that this will be made into a film For any small town a traveling carnival is a huge event This traveling carnival is a little different because not everyone will survive this one This carnival s Castle Of Horrors is the real deal Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves They re all here and waiting for the unsuspecting townspeople When JD Cole and the other kids from the local high school entered the castle they thought it would be fun, instead they have to count on each other to survive Carnival Of Fear by J.G Faherty is the type of book that to me shouts Read Me Now Monsters, a traveling carnival and a bunch of teenagers who can t get along, what s not to like This book was really a mixed bag though, it kind of felt like a YA novel but with violence It has its moments though, I liked the idea that all these kids from different social backgrounds had to work together to survive and because of this they grew and changed On the bad side there was so much going on in this book it bordered on ridiculous If you can suspend your disbelief though this is a fun book. Special thanks to Net Galley for the opportunity to read and review this book Unfortunately it was just ok I liked the story concept from the beginning and the ending was great, but everything in between was slow and a tad confusing I couldn t keep the characters straight in my mind and then when they were going into the different rooms, and the book would jump from room to room, I was lost I wanted to enjoy this than I did but it just fell flat for me. Pick a fear, your worst fear Is it vampires Warewolves Zombies How about dealing with Hell The Carnival of Fear has a fun house that promises to be the biggest and best scare you have ever had Come on inif you dare.A small New York town is abuzz with excitement this Halloween A carnival has set up shop overnight and the citizens are ready for some Halloween thrills and chills No one is immune to the pull of having the pants scared off of them on this holiday, it s a traditionit s your rightand you re going to have fun, even if it kills you And, in this carnival, you may just want to die.As in any high school, you run into the jocks, the nerds, the stoners, and the artsy kids None of them hang out together, but they all have seen each other, picked on each other, and crushed on each other None of these groups planned on spending any time with any of the other groups That just isn t how things are done They never knew that in the span of less than an hour, these groups will have suffered what seems an eternity together As midnight approaches, several kids from each of these groups enter into the Castle of Horrors with the Proprietor silently watching on Once you enter, the kids learn, you cannot leave until you have visited every room in the castle Every nightmare imaginable lays in wait inside the castle The kids will enter eagerly anticipating a good scare Soon after they will be running for the exit, screaming for their lives Can they really survive all the Proprietor has in store for them Carnival of Fear has something for everyone s horror taste There is blood, gore, dismemberment, and a special fear for just about everyone I loved this book because it took me back to the good old days of horror We see all of our favorite horror style characters in this book, and it kept me wanting to keep entering the next room, even though I knew I wouldn t be able to turn my bedroom light off for a while The book is written in parts, and each part is from the view point of one of the teenagers trapped inside the castle This really helps you bond with each of the characters, and you being to even like the characters you really thought would be the perfect person to be decapitated All of these kids learn to work together and get past their differences if any of them are to survive Unfortunately, some of them do not learn this lesson quickly enough This book is not for the squeamish There are certain scenes that are quite brutal if you have a vivid imagination There are several times I was quite grateful I had chosen to read during the daytime Otherwise, I would have NOT been sleeping for a while I give this book 5 stars, and will definitely be picking this up again to make sure that there was nothing I missed No tickets necessary for this carnival, but I guarantee one Hell of a ride.

I was very disappointed with Carnival of Fear I found at least one character description to be very disturbing While the plot is sound I noticed than a few times a word was left out of a sentence I can not recommend Carnival of Fear.
