      While the concept of this book was very solid, the execution needed a little work.Mackenzie is struggling to go on after the stillbirth of her son, her husband leaving her for another woman and the loss of her job. She decides to return home to her mother's ranch in Texas However as she begins her journey driving home, she stumbles across an old derelict cafe in the middle of nowhere. Stepping inside she discovers a new world, the world of dreams and nightmares where your fears can become realit [...]

      This book was a faboulas read! I would recommend it to all.Old abandoned buildings in this world are where the dead spots draw you in. If you enter an old building that has been in disrepair for quite sometime and the door closes behind you you have entered the Dead Spot where all your night mares are manifest. In this dead spot a young lady who had just lost her child to death meets a man and a child and they face their fears and demons and find a way back to the reality we all know. This book [...]

      I had the honor of test reading this book for the author. I can say without a doubt this is the best book I have read in a long time. It has been months since I read it and I still can't get it out of my head. The author's writing has matured so much that it is almost hard to believe that this is by the same person who wrote the AtWD trilogy. Don't get me wrong those are ALL wonderful books. But Dead Spots is in a league of it's own. I cannot wait for this book to be released so I can scream abo [...]

      It’s not often that I get super excited and fan girl over a book, but this is one of them. I read a very early copy of this since I was lucky enough to be a beta reader. I feel like I need to disclose that. Having said that, this is a book that I need to own a physical copy of because it was absolutely amazing!! I need to read it again. (As soon as I can make myself carve out time for it, which will be soon.) The terror was so real, the emotions and feelings were pulling me every which way, an [...]

      *I'll mark any spoilers ahead, but be warned and don't click them if you see them and haven't read the book.I'm giving this 1.5 stars for effort. Ms. Frater's idea was a really good one, and I have been really excited to read Dead Spots since it's release, so when I got the audiobook I was pumped to finally get the chance to read it. It was not at all the book I was expecting it to be - Mackenzie was a whiny, self-centered character and regardless of her situation, I hated her so much. We did ha [...]

      Rhiannon Frater once again gives us a horror novel with human depth and relatability. I think one of my main complaints about the horror novels I’ve read in the past is that most of the time the characters are pawns, they never grow as people and in the end I never really felt a true connection to them. So far everything I’ve read by Frater has given me characters with whom I can relate to on some level, and who I want to see triumph over their fears and obstacles.Dead Spots takes on a new s [...]

      While I could have done without Mackenzie's mood swings (for the past six months she hasn't wanted to let go of her child and Tanner, yet one day after entering the dead spot she's already thinking about Grant), Dead Spots was a shockingly fun and blindingly quick read despite its length. I have no idea when the sequel will come out - or if there even is a sequel, but I'm already looking forward to diving back in this world (and catching up with Lucas~)!For the full review and more, head over to [...]

      Okay now that I have some time I can finally put my thoughts on Dead Spots down.Rhiannon has crafted a brilliant look into the mind.How it can trick you, cause you fear, weaken your body, weaken your senses, play on your hopes, your fears. The mind.Being stuck in a world of your nightmares - tell me that doesn't sound horrible. But for some people (myself included) that's where we are. Always. Stuck in our fears (which are never-ending, mind you), trying in vain to still them, to be at peace wit [...]

    • Once Upon a Twilight says:

      There are times that I read books without knowing anything about it. One of these is Dead Spot, let alone that it is a horror book. Which I usually do not read. I love scary movies but reading horror genre is not my thing. I like the visual effects and sometimes books do not do this justice. But Dead Spot did a great job… It is full of actions, scary monsters and general mayhem.Dead Spot is a place of fear. A place full of nightmares. Full of monsters. The last place Mackenzie expected to be. [...]

      A paranormal story that's quite different from so many. Gone are the vampires, shifters, and witches. "Dead Spots," is a world full of nightmares that never end, where your fears come to fruition. What's real? What's not? Who to trust? Who to believe? One of the most interesting novels of the paranormal genre I've read in a while.

    • Sarah Anne says:

      This is the bubble gum and pigtails version of a horror story. The writing reads like an 18 year old fresh out of a creative writing class. The editing was good, but the writing was too simplistic for me. And for God's sake, the MC actually had a Brittney Spears ringtone on her phone! DNF at 36%. This is a waste of my precious reading time.

      It would've been nice to know how they explain to everybody where they were

      Six months after the stillbirth of her son, Mackenzie Babin is grieving not only his death, but the loss of her job, her home, and her marriage. As a last resort, she decides to return to her mother's ranch in Texas until she can get back on her feet again. On her way home, a curious near-accident on an isolated road lands her in front of an abandoned diner. In an uncharacteristically bold moment, she steps inside the building to look around and finds herself trapped in a frightening limbo from [...]

    • Lee Marie says:

      I randomly came across this book in the horror section of my bookstore it caught my eye because it was a brand new book spine I had never seen there before. I was instantly drawn to it. I had no idea what it was about when I decided buy it In fact the main reason I bought it is because it came out on my birthday this year. Strange, I know, but I am glad that I let it sway me.Did this book scare me? No, not really.I was a tad bit disappointed because I don't personally feel like I could comfortab [...]

    • Pure Textuality says:

      Dead Spots was my first time reading a Rhiannon Frater book and I have to say, I was quite impressed. I cracked it open and was hooked from the prologue. That doesn’t happen for me very often. Most books require at least a few chapters to grab me.Right out of the gate, this book starts out with a heartbreaking series of events. As it states in the blurb, our main girl Mackenzie ends up giving birth to a stillborn child. The fallout of her son’s death consists of her marriage coming to an abr [...]

      I am a big fan of Rhiannon Frater. She writes strong female characters with interesting paranormal and horror stories as the backdrop.And, I have to say that Dead Spots is probably my favorite so far. Mackenzie has gone through a horrible 6 month period and now is traveling through Texas to move back in with her mother as she pulls her life together. When she almost hits a deer and stops unexpectedly, she decides to spend a few minutes exploring a deserted old restaurant. As she walks in, she di [...]

    • Melissa says:

      This book felt like a twilight zone movie. You are thrust into an unknown realm full of rules you don't know and don't understand. It is dangerous to not know these rules and most things out there want to drain you and make you their prisoner. It isn't a jaunty tour of the backroad country.We start with Mackenzie who is overwhelmed with several losses at once. Her life is in a total upheaval and her grief is threatening to consume her. She does what she can to move forward, but it seems like she [...]

      Listened for Fun (Audible)Overall Rating: 4.50Story Rating: 4.75Character Rating: 4.25Audio Rating: 4.50 (not part of the overall rating)First Thought when Finished: Dead Spots by Rhiannon Frater was everything I have come to expect (in a brilliant kind of way) when cracking open a book by her: emotional, twisted, and at the core a story about overcoming life circumstances. LOVED IT!Overall Thoughts:1: This was different, unique, awesome, twisty, and downright not what I was expecting (storywise [...]

    • Alexia Purdy says:

      An absolutely amazing story that I could not put down! I read an early beta copy of this story, but man, it was already epic! Rhiannon Frater knows the terrors of the heart and how to twist in the ice pick when it matters most. I've honestly never read anything so haunting, thrilling and emotionally gripping in a very long time like this story. Mac goes through heartache to terror in no time at all. To follow her through this new world that exists right alongside ours that is inescapable in ever [...]

    • Christoffer Lernö says:

      In some ways this book reminds me of Frater's "As The World Dies": the sudden collapse of the world into horror is similar, as is the struggle to stay alive and find strength to replace loss.The story itself has a strong touch of Stephen King's horror stories, but unlike King's books which is more of a descent into madness, this is an ascent from madness through confronting horrors and fears. A theme which occur frequently in Frater's stories.As usual, the prose is not spectacular but works.I wo [...]

    • Carolyn F. says:

      I loved this author's The First Days series. This not so much. I couldn't figure out what was real and what wasn't. Figments (or are they?) were running rampant. I got to about 1/3 of the way through and just couldn't make myself pick it, which is a real shame because I like this author. :(

    • Conny says:

      Amazing and awesome.Evertime I think I've read the best book from Rhiannon she comes with a better one, how can that be?She is truly amazing. This book was a rollercoaster from beginning till the end.And I feel sad it's over, I wish there would be more, I loved it so much. Thank you Rhiannon for this amazing ride/read.

    • Tiffany Naiman says:

      Amazing! Just read it. I really would like to see more of this story.

    • Lauren says:

      This book was a bit too long-it could have been a good 100 pages shorter and still have the same effect. The author demonstrated great use of imagery, though.

    • Heather says:

      When I ordered Dead Spots off a used book site, I was more than a little bummed that I had received an AUP instead of the finished story.It ended up sitting on my book shelf for months. I picked up a few days ago, and decided to give it a chance, and am so glad I did, when I first heard about the book what intrigued me most was that the MC had suffered child loss. I lost a baby 17 years ago to neonatal death. This book was a punch in the gut, it was so amazingly spot on, so much, so that [...]

    • Kira FlowerChild says:

      Although our local public library has this book filed under adult fiction, it reads like young adult or teen fiction, although some of the themes, such as miscarriage, rape and violence, are adult. Though this is by no means the author's first novel, she has writen many before this, it reads like a first novel. There are grammatical errors, author intrusion, inconsistencies, and confusing passages that even when reread several times don't make sense. It reads, quite frankly, like an ebook that h [...]

    • Zoe says:

      Although the plot was entertaining and fixating, it was slow and the beginning was quite boring in my opinion. But as the story continued and the characters understood more about dead spots you to understood more about dead spots. A fantasy nightmare world where anything and everything can happen. Worst fears and greatest desires meld until your not sure where one ends and the other begins. Was interesting and made you want to figure out what would happen next.

    • Marnie Zorn says:

      Didn't finish I couldn't believe when her husband had already moved on and impregnated someone else within 6 months of losing their baby

    • Lauren C. says:

      So, I have to say this book was absolutely bad ass.Think macabre Hunger Games meets Walking Dead, with a kick ass heroine. Mackenzie is at the darkest spot in her life. Anxiety-ridden, heart-broken, and barely functioning each day as a result of losing her son--who was tragically stillborn---and being left by her husband, who has already moved on and gotten another woman pregnant---is tearing Mackenzie up to the point of being utterly broken. She is a naturally anxious, fearful woman and adding [...]

    • Chapter by Chapter says:

      Have you ever read a book where you were constantly hoping that the whole thing was a nightmare that didn’t really happen? That the main character would wake up, and things in her life were totally the opposite of what was happening? Dead Spots by Rhiannon Frater did just that for me. Her books have never disappointed me. She is such a skilled horror writer that everything that happens in the book, was freakishly scary, and that your heart can’t help but beat faster and harder when the big b [...]
