    1. "There are some things what are meant to be left to the dark places." Dell knew pa was scaredE WARBLERS were bad news.an as hell.ly as sin and stunk to high heavens when he sent ma and his little sister away, he knew they were about to rid the farm of the "terrifying infestation" that had taken over the shed and brutally slaughtered his beloved dog Ginger. What he didn't know was what was on the way to render assistance.Amber Fallon does a great job writing an enticing short story with a satisfy [...]

    2. THE WARBLERS is a well written novella high in the CREEPY category! Young Dell is upset over the loss of his dog Ginger, and he feels guilty over the dog's death. If Dell hadn't let Ginger out at night, the warblers wouldn't have gotten her. Since the warblers have taken up residence in the back shed of the family farm, they are a constant threat to the family, especially to Dell's little sister. Something must be done about them and Dell's father makes the call. What are the warblers, exactly? [...]

    3. Atmospheric and dark, with a vivid climax that satisfied my fix for weird and original horror. Occasionally, I found the affected southern voice the story is told in a tad distracting, but it really does help in establishing the tone of the book, so that was more of a pet peeve than a misstep. Think like: how the characters talk in a Coen Bros. movie. And it’s a short novel, which I could see leaving certain readers wanting more, but for me, I thought it’s brevity was a boon. I hate books th [...]

    4. In this lean novella by the author of THE TERMINAL, Amber Fallon deftly weaves an intriguing period piece, devoid of showing the exact time and place, but it isn't necessary as you're pulled immediately into the story told through the eyes of 14 year old Dell. His family struggles to make a living at their farm, and suddenly becomes beset by the warblers. You see, these mysterious and deadly nocturnal beasties have recently killed the young man's beloved dog and he wants them destroyed no matter [...]

    5. THE WARBLERS (Eraserhead Press, 2017) by Amber Fallon is a novella that surprised me. After reading her novella, THE TERMINAL (Flesh Pulp Press, 2016), I thought I knew what to expect (horror, lots of action-filled horror), but with THE WARBLERS, Fallon takes a different approach. "Don't be a fool, boy. Graveyard's full up with fools."The story is a coming-of-age yarn from the point of view of a 14-year-old boy named, Dell. Dell's family's farm is in danger from a group of vicious birds (the War [...]

    6. THE WARBLERS is a fine little amuse-bouche of a horror story. With its youthful protagonist and very low gore level compared to high creepiness level, I was reminded of a classic GOOSEBUMPS novel. The story is told in the first person with a sort of vaguely rural Southern speech pattern, though I'm not sure the location is every explicitly identified. And with the way the townsfolk seem to accept the existence of monsters and magic, it may not be meant to be our country or even our universe afte [...]

    7. My favourite part of this book was the atmosphere, a slow brooding tension in the background, hints behind words at something terrible hiding in the shadows. Most of the characters were immediately engaging and quite wholesome, which made a nice change to a lot of other horror books where characters a broken people with murky morality. The story was clear and precisely written making it easy to get into, which is something that is needed in shorter fiction and appreciated here. I read this in on [...]

    8. Amber Fallon rocks. Her novella Terminal was a fantastic pulp alien action extravaganza. This time she serves up a creature story with a nice southern twang. Slightly more serious than her last book. It will hook you in and you will probably finish in one sitting.

    9. A solid quick monster story with some southern gothic prose. The monsters are very creative and original and a lot of what is not said about them is what makes them scary. I read it in two brief sittings as it clocks in at slightly over 70 short pages. Fallon does a good job of covering a complete story in that short period of time, including a good ending.I picked this up because I wanted to read something short, fun, and bloody. The Warblers definitely fit the bill. I don’t read a ton of biz [...]

    10. Crazy GoodI had a blast reading The Warblers by Amber Fallon. I loved the portrayal of the main character, the first-person prose a dialect reminiscent of Stienbeck. Fallon is also a master of building suspense and soaking it in dread. If all her stories are this good, I might have found a new favorite. Highly recommended.

    11. Wow, Amber Fallon is rad! By that, I mean that she is a really, really, super for real really great writer. And by that, I mean that she is totally Excellent!! The writing in this little book kind of reminds me of reading John Steinbeck in high school lit class, only this isn't boring. Although I'd hoped for more gore, I enjoyed the emotional element that courses throughout The Warblers, as well as the theme of familial relationships. It seems to be set in some weird, alternate Appalachia univer [...]

    12. Life on the farmI recommend this book to anyone who likes coming of age stories and monsters. Such realism before, during, and after the stuff hits the fan.This one is a blast. Indulge yourself with The Warblers.

    13. Short and to the point and still a satisfying read. I've known of Amber Fallon for a couple of years but haven't read any of her stories. This is my first. Excellent writing, 'old timey' feel, which I like a lot, strange creatures, unique first person voice. Go check it out!

    14. Great atmosphere building of a world skewed to our own, rising dread, and suspense. The story never went where I was expecting. Very enjoyable novella for a quick read.

    15. Quiet and Atmospheric Bizarro Horror, with a healthy helping of Coming of Age and a side of Rural Gothic for good measure. Would make for an excellent short film.

    16. I really enjoyed this book. Packed with atmosphere and heart, Amber Fallon's The Warblers is an absolute treat. It's a short read, but incredibly rich and rewarding. The narrative voice is strong and engaging. It's well paced and has a good grizzly ending. A must read for 2018!

    17. I enjoyed this book allot, it ratchets up to the climax step by step. You are given bits of information on the world and these nasty things called Warblers. The reader is drawn in as a participant using your imagination as the story pulses to the visceral end. Great work, this rings of my favorite like Joe R. LansdaleLooking forward to read your other work.

    18. I think it was the Lansdale blurb I saw that reeled me in. I figured if Joe liked it, I’d like it too. And I was right. See full review at Cemetery Dance online here: cemeterydance/extras/r
