Old Farmer's Roadby Isaiyan Morrison is a science fiction/fantasy novel with horror and the occult mixed in to the story. Fans of these genres would fall in love with this story.

Old Farmer's Road has been the center of several mysterious deaths for centuries. No one knows of the true horrors that reside in that swampy area except for two teenagers: Isaac and Elsie. They quickly befriend Cecilia shortly after she moves from California to Minneapolis. The conduct a ritual that turns Cecilia into the same rare creature they are, an Impa. Each day Cecilia is plagued with a voice asking for "just one more," and a hunger that can only be quenched by the flesh and essence of humans. Soon the voice and the hunger become more than she can bear, and Cecilia tries to find another way to save herself as well as the unwilling victims of Isaac and Elsie. Meanwhile Jan and Derek are investigating the murders since Derek brother became one of the victims. Little do they know the truth that is lurking in the swamp. There is some truth to the old legends revolving around Old Farmer's Road, but is there a way to eliminate an ancient evil with a grudge against the town?

This book was difficult to put down, I would lay awake trying to finish the book, or spend all night reading telling myself "just one more page." The book draws readers into the story straight from the start and holds the reader's attention until the very end. There were points in this book that were down right terrifying as Morrison describes the Impa and their feeding habits. I thought thought the folklore around the Old Farmer's Road was interesting and a great use of how small towns hold on to things. The story is completely unpredictable and the ending will blow you away and haunt your nightmares.

Morrison's writing radiates off the pages and drags readers into his story. He creates a tale that burns itself into your mind and remains there until you discover something else that takes its place. The characters begin being complex and only get more complex as they story progresses. Morrison creates characters that go beyond their traditional roles, they become people you feel are lurking outside your windows or doors. He is a master at creating a tale that is equally interesting and terrifying.

I completely fell in love with this story and actually read the book twice. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading science fiction, fantasy, horror and books about the occult. I would give Old Farmer's Road by Isaiyan Morrison a rating of a 4 out of 4. This is a simply amazing book.

Great review! This sounds like a real page turner, although with the horror element, I'm not sure I could stay up all night reading without getting scared myself : )

This sounds like an intense, exciting story. I like page-turners, and with well-developed characters, this seems like it would be a very interesting read. Your enthusiasm for the book shows in your informative review. I think this is a book that I would like to read. Congratulations to the author for what sounds like a really good story. Great review!
