Corruption

The Book Addict's Reviews

Hey guys! Today I’m reviewing the audiobook Corruption by Adam Vine and narrated by Kevin Meyer.

I definitely enjoyed the story’s premise and the plot. I thought it was a very unique concept and I got hooked straight away. I like the whole not expected hero ploy and the fact that we kind of dislike Daniel throughout most of the story. He’s not very heroic, yet he does step up to the plate. I’d give the story a 4/5.

For the narration, I did enjoy it in parts. But there were also a lot of issues for me. I found that Meyer sounded the same for a lot of characters. The men voices were done well and pretty distinctive for the most part, but female voices seemed to have the most issues. They didn’t quite sound female nor did they have a good distinction between them. I’d have liked to…

Audiobook Review: Corruption

“Another great book by Adam Vine and to be honest, I was not expecting anything less.” Thank you to Lilly’s Book World for this great review! And Lilly is right… I absolutely suck at writing blurbs. If anyone out there in Internet Land wants to rewrite the blurb for Corruption for me… I have a bottle of scotch with your name on it.

Dab of Darkness reviews ‘Corruption’

Corruption, the first book in my dark fantasy series “The Corruption Cycle,” is finally getting some reviews. This latest one from Dab of Darkness is my favorite one yet. Dab reviewed Lurk, too. There’s also a fun interview after the review in which I get to talk about bed bugs, Gene Wolfe, and other random stuff. One minor quibble: his name is Rat Keeper, not Rat Catcher 😅

Read the full review + interview here.

Lurk – Adam Vine (Review)

Great review of LURK from Inconsistent Pacing

Inconsistent Pacing

Drew is a loser. He’s fat, awkward, and hopelessly infatuated with a girl who doesn’t share his feelings. He has good friends though, and throws great parties. Sunny Hill, the house he shares with those friends, has been a party house for decades.

When Drew finds an old camera in the basement beneath the house, it leads him into a downward spiral of jealousy and rage. The pictures show some of the house’s previous inhabitants, and sometimes they seem to change.

Lurk is a story of corruption and degradation, of creeping evil and the underside of human happiness. It’s my kind of horror.
