    1. I didn't expect to like this story as much as I did. I didn't expect to love one of its characters either. It is a combination of horror and historical fiction. It takes place in a small hamlet West Bradhill in colonial Massachusetts. The villagers are preparing for rebellion and a small group of British soldiers led by Major William Pomeroy ends up in the middle of a mess made by one of the villagers.The story is well written: a very selfish man does something unforgivable and forbidden and unl [...]

    2. Where the Dead Talk by Ken Davis is a gripping tale of the undead which takes place in a rural part of the Massachusetts colony on the very eve of the American Revolution.As a mix of horror and historical fiction, well-researched and skillfully written with an intriguing plot, this novel would have likely earned five stars from me anyway. However, the character of Major William Pomeroy, "one of the finest officers of the King's Own Regiment" (in his own words), pushed Where the Dead Talk over th [...]

    3. I wasn't too impressed with this book; I blame it a little on the reviews I read before picking it up.'A zombie story where they're made by and must be destroyed by magic' - yet, strangely like modern zombies, removing the head works well enough too.The historical aspect of it appealed to me from the word go - only to find that the author used a lot of contractions within the dialogue. I'm no expert, but I wouldn't have expected an abundance of contractions during this time period!!I did enjoy t [...]

    4. Review of Where the Dead Talk by Ken Davis5 starsA riveting and terrifying horror novel, “Where the Dead Talk” kept my attention and interest from beginning to end as I raced through it. Mr. Davis’ horrors are different, and very horrifying. It all revolves around the lake near the village of West Bradhill in pre-Revolutionary New England, a lake which is more than just “haunted.” Whatever rests beneath that lake surely is older than even the indigenous tribes formerly of the area. I a [...]

    5. Note: On my review blog, I gave it a 4.5 since I can't quite say a 5. As GoodReads doesn't allow half stars, this brings me down to a 4.* * *This is my second experience with Davis' work. I have also read his Array'd in Flames. I liked it, but I did have some issues with it. I'm happy to say that I did not have the same issues with this one. I felt for the characters and cared what happened to them all. Between both books, Davis has a real gift for creating atmosphere of the setting. He certainl [...]

    6. I enjoyed this book. I found it an easy and interesting read. I thought it was well written with lots of great descriptions that really made the characters and situations easy to imagine. Yes, it is a horror story but you can also take this from it: sometimes secrets are better shared than hidden in the dark.

    7. Really good read. Started off a little slow for me, but I'm glad I kept reading. Interesting story and great characters. The major is a hoot.Very impressed with the book as a whole and enjoyed it very much.

    8. I loved the first half of this book. The second half was ok. I got it for free on Bookbubs and was interested because I love historical fiction. The book was basically about a zombie attack during revolutionary times in Massachusetts. The first half was scary! Excellent building of scenes where people encounter the "dead". The whole scene with the group in the pub fending off the "dead" was rockin'!! The descriptions of the dead were gross but awesome. Enjoyed the banter between Pomeroy and Caro [...]

    9. This was a fun, quick read. The story begins around the time of Colonial independence. The British are fighting those colonialists who wish to separate themselves from royal rule. Little do they know the bigger threat lies in their village, a threat they have helped feed. The story is not overly frightening. There are adult issues that are raised, which would have me making sure a young adult understands them prior to reading. However, I think it would make a good young adult read. I tend to fee [...]

    10. The first part of the book was pretty scary, I'll admit. But the parts that weren't scary were boring, and even the scary parts got boring about halfway through. The characters were shallow and predictable, and I didn't appreciate the huge stereotypes in the book. The book pretty much follows the cliche of bad stuff happen to white people and the token black guy. Only person who knows what's going on is a native american man and his nephew, who no one listens to until it's too late, in which the [...]

    11. This book was a bit out of my comfort zone, but the summary definitely pushed me to read it. The fact that Halloween is quickly approaching, probably helped a little too. Though I did enjoy "Where the Dead Talk" it seemed like it took FOREVER to read. I was honestly shocked to find out that it only had 249 pages. I guess when you read intermittently on the bus on your phone, you don't make as much progress as you think you do. The storyline seemed to build a little slow, so I guess that didn't h [...]

    12. Best line in the book: "Please, Carolyn. I need your skin.Started off disjointed to me; like the author wanted me to guess what was going on and what it was all about, to keep me in suspense, but instead I was confused and felt like giving up. However, I pressed on and the revealing process started oh so slowly. This is a character driven story of men at war who happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time when a 'curse' brings out the undead who know your secrets and like to spread their e [...]

    13. A zombie apocalypse at the start of the American revolution?I don't even know how to classify this one . . . a story of a small village in Massachusetts at the outbreak of the American Revolution, with a nearby cursed lake that brings back the dead (rather like "Pet Semetary"), and the outbreak of a zombie uprising . . . the writing of individual scenes is really good, although I found the overall flow a little disjointed at times. Anyway, it's a nifty story, and made me a bit homesick for New E [...]

    14. This book is fairly good. Slow at first, but gets better. It is about a young boy named Thomas, who lost his hearing at a young age due to illness and a curse upon the family. His cousin dies in a tragic accident, and his father, uncle and he put the body into the lake. His uncle is later attacked, his brother runs away, and his dad seemingly disappears due to a mysterious force. British calvary men arrive at Thomas's uncle's house and find blood leading to the basement. Some die, others escape [...]

    15. This book confused me. I understood what the curse was, but it wasn't clear how the curse worked. From what I understood, some Indian people were burned in a house and set a curse on the land, but what confused me is that the purpose of the curse was to destroy all the Indians in that tribe? Maybe I didn't understand it properly, but I really just didn't get this book, hence why I took off so many stars.There were some pretty suspenseful parts in this book but it took me a very long time to warm [...]

    16. What a great book! I had tried to read it a while back but wound up pulling the plug after about 15 pages. I decided to give it another shot and am glad that I did. Setting a zombie story during the American Revolution was a brilliant idea. The fact the the author creates characters that are fully developed and plot that gallops along just makes for a complete package. I will be seeking out more by Mr. Davis.

    17. I wasn't too thrilled by this novel. The pacing staggered a bit and though one might consider this apropos since it did have shambling undead in it, I just found it unnerving. It also took a while to really start to develop the characters so that I would care about what happened to them. I felt as though the author himself was trying to discover which character he wanted to concentrate on.

    18. I love books about colonial America as well as books about the dead coming back to the land of the living. Ken Davis has put the two of them together, in an absolutely unputdownable book. It's a cracking good read & Mr Davis has down the near impossible by making us believe in every character he created. If this type of book is your genre, do yourselves a favor and get your hands on a copy.

    19. ok when I first started reading it I didn't think I was going to finish it let alone like it. I was wrong I loved it. I think this would make an awesome movie with great effects. I could see it playing in my head. it does start out slow but it is worth it to finish it. I like the unique spin on the walkers.

    20. Wow what can i say? This book was awesome. It had almost everything in that you could hope for in a book, the american revolution, Native Americans, a evil lake, demon possession and even zombies in a way though not the flesh eating kind. Very well written with characters that come to life in your mind. I would recommend this book to anyone.

    21. I was a little bored at first, because I don't typically read books dealing with the Revolutionary War time period. However, I quickly became intrigued and a little bit creeped out by this new take on zombies or "the walking dead" if you will. Great book!

    22. I really liked the concept but I think it could use a bit more editing. Tightened up a bit more as a shorter story. Period pieces can be a bit tricky and one also had to suspend belief with some of the characters.I'll be keeping my out on this writer.

    23. I'd give it a 3.5/5.It's a nice little twist on the zombie genre because of the setting, and it starts out good, but kinda runs out of steam towards the end.

    24. Creepy and fast paced. Some of the characters weren't terribly smart or believable but it's a good read for Halloween.

    25. Good bookI found myself slightly confused off and on throughout this book. Definitely wonderful plot but I think it could have been fleshed out more.

    27. Good page turner. Storyline riveting. Interesting characters. I quite enjoyed the sarcasm from Pomeroy. A little too much description at times.
