Nailbiter, vol. 4, by Joshua Williamson, Mike Henderson, Adam Guzowski and John J. Hill !!!

Consider this a warning!!!

I guess I had requested Volume 4 way before I read Volume 3, otherwise I wouldn’t have gotten it.

But I did.

And I took a look.

And, within just a few pages, everything that I started hating about this series poured right off the page:

Agent Carroll had woken up at the end of the last book, but now he’s conveniently taken out of the way by the FBI for his safety – so one of the only people who knows anything will not reveal his secrets, after all.

Then the Nailbiter, the other person who claimed to know something about the horrors of Buckaroo, and who so irritatingly refused to divulge anything in the last book, leaves town. For no clear reason whatsoever!

It’s bad enough that there were fake scares right from the start, utterly false situations designed to titillate the reader’s bloodlust but that were all gimmick. That was annoying. But to cheat the reader on such a grand scale?

F- you!

So I gave up and skipped to the end of the book, just for laughs. And, on the final page, FBI Agent Barker kills Carroll before anyone can find out the truth about Buckaroo – while asking him to tell her what was going on.

Seriously! She wants to know what it is about Buckaroo that’s infected and twisted her, but asks while stabbing the guy!

WTF!!! WTF!!! WTF!!!

It makes no sense, PLUS it’s Williamson and Henderson’s way of permanently preventing us from knowing the truth.

They already stalled way beyond reason as it is. This is a f-ing insult.

I have no doubt that they will drag their readers along for as long as they possibly can – to the point where none of them are going to give a !@#$ anymore. You know, much in the same way that ‘Twin Peaks’ did in Season Two.


You have been warned!
