    I am a huge fan of Mark Edwards, he never fails to surprise me with each book. Yet again, another totally unique book here with a new plot, plenty of twists and loads of moments that you will be busting to know what REALLY happened. Mark is brilliant at making you wait for the good stuff.I like knowing that when I pick up a book by Mark I am going to like it, without fail. He knows what his readers want and gives it to them time after time. I fou...

    So bad I created an account here just to slam it. It's like a montage of cliches and nonsense. A taxi drives through a puddle and splashes an old lady. A homeless guy jumps out of the darkness and startles a character. A pregnant lady holds her belly. The whole book is trite imagery from watching too many crappy noir films and Lifetime dramas.Oh god, then the nonsense. The British couple, while in Romania, says "it's about 10 kilometers. That's 6...

    Dear Mr. Edwards,Here we are again. I last wrote to you in my review of The Magpies last year. I said a lot of nice things because you penned one hell of a book. Well, guess what? I hate to swell that head of yours, but Follow You Home trumps The Magpies. Not to pressure you, but The Devil’s Work is going to have to be exceedingly phenomenal to beat this one. Don’t let me down.52 Pickup. Yes sir, this book reminded me of that great old card g...

    Extremely unbelievable plot, way beyond the believability associated with any decent fiction, which hindered my ability to care even a little about any of the silly characters. I won't summarize the story -- tons of reviewers have already done that. Just know that this book starts on a high note and then makes a slow, aggravating decline encouraged by a ridiculous secret and a cast of equally ridiculous characters. This book will help you sharpen...

    3.5 This was one creepy, creepy read.

Thrown off with them is Aline, a young Romanian woman they met on the train, traveling with her friend Ion. Stuck in the middle of nowhere, with no papers, Aline goes missing in the woods after entering them to emp...

    Another knock-out read from an author who truly knows how to keep a reader on their toes!Being a mystery/suspense junkie, I'd like to think that over the years I have developed some super sleuth detective skills. This can actually be problematic, as often times I am able to anticipate where a story is going, or figure out who the main antagonist is well before the big reveal. But once again, Mark Edwards was able to lead me and my favorite book b...

    4.5 stars maybe? I shirked my responsibilities today to read almost half of this on my rainy muggy boxing day. I’m good at this. I think my clan expect it. It was brilliant! So glad to have come across Mark Edwards and now cannot wait for The Magpies which has been on my radar far longer than this one has. Actually, my local reading community are in for a treat as I requested this one be added to my library catalogue and they obliged.Absolute b...

    "The evil from that followed us home."FOLLOW YOU HOME begins innocently enough as Daniel and Laura continue their once in a lifetime travels across Europe by boarding an evening train to Romania, but the combination of a few creepy passengers and a brief nap result in being robbed of tickets, passports and $ that ultimately end with a boot off the train in the middle of nowhere with nothing but darkness and forest all around.....or s...

    Find all of my reviews at: discovered Follow You Home due to a stranger's review that popped up on my Goodreads’ feed when one of my friends liked it. Looky there GR, your “upgrade” actually did something okay. You go Glen Coco Goodreads! Between the cover art, title, blurb and the fact the weather forecast was calling for cloudy with a chance of meatballs I was ready to dig in to a nice scary story. Turn...
  • Babydoll
    This was almost a DNF but I had to know what was the big bad thing that happened to Laura and Daniel that they swore to never tell. It takes over half the book to find out and it's disappointing. I skimmed the last half to see how it all plays out. At this point I still didn't know if I was reading a story about horror, the supernatural, or a crime thriller. The writing is amateurish, the plot implausible, and the characters aren't likeable.

Upon discovering their passports, train tickets, and money have been stolen from their backpacks, they are unceremoniously thrown off the train in the middle of nowhere.

    Laura and Daniel are on the trip of a lifetime around Europe, supposedly their last blow-out before they settle down and start a family. But the trip ends abruptly and disastrously in Romania, an ending that we only see the build up to at first, with the complete story gradually being told to us in teasing little snippets throughout the read.Three months after their return to London, and their relationship is in tatters. But what exactly happened...

    The more I read of this mans work the more I love it. This author is one outstanding thriller story teller. From the very start to the very end you are so engrossed in the story that my house roof could cave in and I'd be annoyed its interrupted my read. I kid you not. We have this couple who are travelling around before they settled down, marry and have children. The thing is, they unknowingly get caught up in something that is a double dealin...

    Mark Edwards is an author I have only started reading this year but I am yet to be disappointed with any of his novels. I find his books gripping from the start and instantly engaging making them very difficult to put down. The books I have read by him are full of surprises with lots of twists and turns that keep you reading to find out more.He sets high standards with his writing and this one was again up there with the others I have read. This ...

    A special thank you to Thomas & Mercer and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. 5 Stars + Top 50 Books of 2015 "Best Horror Suspense Thriller."Mark Edwards, one of my “go-to” authors for some of the most intense and engaging psychological thrillers; however, with FOLLOW YOU HOME, he turns up the complexity and intensity ten-fold, (like, on steroids) with a Stephen King-like, brilliantly plotted, spine-tingling, and haunti...

    Follow You Home is the second book I've read by Mark Edwards. The first being The Magpies and I can say that after reading this the writing has improved as we're treated to a pacy, rollercoaster of a thriller.The book begins with an English couple on a Romanian leg of an European tour they decided to take. A couple in their mid thirties that thought it would be a good idea to take a one last big holiday before they settle down and start a family....

    This is one creepy book. I'm not normally a reader of thrillers but this one had me on the edge of my seat trying to work out what had happened to a wholesome young couple in a dark forest in the middle of Romania.Daniel and Laura, a young English couple are on a backpacking trip around Europe before settling down to have a a family when they are robbed on a train in the middle of Romania. With no money, tickets or passports they are thrown off t...

    3.5 starsI had zero idea what this book was about, picking it up solely due to seeing Edwards' name pop up on here in glowing terms so often. If anything, I thought that made the reading experience even better. It's a crazy, wild ride of a story and not even having the blurb to guide me made it all the more surprising. It was hugely enjoyable but I felt the writing suffered at times. The style is splashy, all about the plot and surprises. Easy to...

    I need to read more psychological thrillers!It’s funny because I had just finished reading a traditional romance story for the Genre Spotlight feature and wasn’t sure if I wanted to grab another one (then I saw some titles in the Kindle store and just couldn’t do it), but I did want something contemporary-ish. I normally never go to the Kindle store when I’m looking for books, but I was already in bed and decided to take a walk on the wil...
  • Crumb
    Very good, well written piece of horror/thriller. This is definitely an author to watch.
  • Tanja Berg
    This book was nominated in this round of Goodyear's award, in the horror category I think. Not that I'm sure. I thought it sounded interesting and downloaded it on audible for my long holiday flight. On my way back home, with three hours to go, it ended. Apparently I hadn't downloaded it completely. I almost left it at that. Given the stellar goodreads reviews I thought I'd give it another go. That saved this book from a one star rating, but only...

    Mark Edwards is back with a new thriller sure to keep reader up late into the night, especially if they travel by rail. While on a tour of Europe, Laura and Daniel are robbed in the rural townships of Romania, their passports and tickets lifted from their bags. Romanian border guards toss them from the train, along with a young woman, Alina, who sought to defend them. In the middle of nowhere, Alina trudges off and Laura and Daniel soon follow, t...

    This started off creepy and thrilling but ended up being dull and stupid. The whole thing that happened at the house in the woods was disturbing yes, but I feel like it's been done before. Still this isn't a terrible book though. That twist at the end made my jaw hit the floor!
  • Rosangela
    I did not enjoy this one. Almost a DNF. NOTHING happens! Unlikeable characters, unbelievable plot, did not convince me at all. I ended up annoyed. Not my kind of book.

    Loved this book. I have become a fan of Mark Edwards.

    This is my first book by Mark Edwards, but it certainly won’t be the last. It was one that I didn’t so much read as consume. I started it at lunchtime and before I knew it, dinner was on the table. I carried on reading afterwards and planned to take it to bed, but the author had painted such a scary picture up to that point and was about to reveal exactly what had happened in that Romanian forest, so I decided to leave it until the morning. W...
