    HELLWORLD is riveting, action-packed and unexpected. It teases answers to a mystery as the chapters alternate between the present and the past. It builds suspense as readers learn more about what Abby, Charlie, Selby, and Alex uncovered in the cave in their search for Abby?s mom. ...

    This was a fun ride of a book. Didn?t really know what to expect going in so when shit hit the fan I was pleasantly surprised with how it went down. I actually really enjoyed bouncing back and forth between past and present timelines. A lot of the time that frustrates me to know ...

    "Children," he says, and somehow, it actually sounds paternal rather than patronizing, "you might want to start adjusting yourselves to the idea that the rest of your lives will be spent in Hell." Five years ago, Abby's mother, a co-host of a ghost-hunting reality show that relied o...

    I received an advanced reader copy of this book from Indigo Books & Music Inc. in exchange for an honest review While this was a kind of fun read, the characters and certain situations were problematic and confusing. I found myself stopping a lot to ask myself WHY the characters...

    Original review @ http://sandrathebookworm.blogspot.com... I was sent an ARC by the author and publisher in exchange for an honest review. Hellworld was a very different from my usual reads; I was looking for a good YA horror book and Tom Leveen delivered! I have never enjoyed a ...

    I really looked forward to this one. It really tried to be a hell-ish read but all it left me with is a feeling of boredom and exasperation. When I first saw this book I thought "Oh, Hellworld? Sounds interesting!" I liked the idea of being in a cave deep underground and feeling...

    Horror, in any capacity, is not my thing. I don't watch scary movies, I've never read a Stephen King book, and bumps in the night make me incredibly nervous. I'm a big wuss, which makes it especially surprising I would pick up this book. I've loved Tom Leveen's books in the past, so I ...

    A quick read. The before and after chapters are distracting and suck out any tension. I would have rather read it in a linear sequence to build up the horror and tension than knowing what happens and then reading about what I already know. There are a wide variety of beliefs presented ...

    This Novel was rather interesting. I really likes how it was written, each chapter has a title saying 'Then' or 'Now', so you read about what happened in this so called cave and what's happening now on solid ground. It was very interesting and it really made you want to keep reading! I...

    Okay, so ultimately this was a entertaining read. The plot was interesting, and I read through this very quickly. However I really didn?t like the continuous back and forth of the ?past? and ?present? for each chapter, because the time between the two were already so close t...

    Well damn. This was so not what I was expecting. but I'm far from disappointed. This book was so so much more than what I thought. At first I wasn't sure about the alternate times from Then and Now that it was told in but it really helped build the plot up. It's creepy, insane and down...

    So.....this book definitely had potential: monsters, missing ghost hunters, creepy cave, hell being unleashed, you know...but then the end of the book. Sigh....feels like the author tried to cram WAY TOO much into the last 40 pages of the book, either make a second book or make the fir...

    An enjoyable, quick read with suspense and at first predictable plot twists, that get turned on their head to keep you guessing! I enjoyed the unique "then" and "now" viewpoints that bring the book to a critical point! ...

    Rating of 4.5/5, This book was a apocalyptic thriller and it was amazing and surprised me with how good it was and how immersed I got into the characters and what was happening in the story and was terrifying in some parts. I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves apocalyptic no...

    It started off ok then fell flat. I hated that chapters went from Past to present but in the present it stated stuff that happened in the past and then when you read the chapter of the past you already knew what was going to happen. Got it? Lmao boring ...

    Original review @ http://sandrathebookworm.blogspot.com... I was sent an ARC by the author and publisher in exchange for an honest review. Hellworld was a very different from my usual reads; I was looking for a good YA horror book and Tom Leveen delivered! I have never enjoyed a ...

    I really looked forward to this one. It really tried to be a hell-ish read but all it left me with is a feeling of boredom and exasperation. When I first saw this book I thought "Oh, Hellworld? Sounds interesting!" I liked the idea of being in a cave deep underground and feeling...

    Horror, in any capacity, is not my thing. I don't watch scary movies, I've never read a Stephen King book, and bumps in the night make me incredibly nervous. I'm a big wuss, which makes it especially surprising I would pick up this book. I've loved Tom Leveen's books in the past, so I ...

    Personal Response: I thought that the book Hellworld by Tom Leveen was a decent story. This was a book where the point of view stayed the same but the time, present or past, switched back and forth. The author did an okay job of keeping the confusion between the tense changes to a min...

    This was a quick and easy read. This caught my eye because of the setting in AZ. I love reading books by authors who write about my home state. This definitely was not what I expected. I thought I'd be reading a supernatural story (afterlife type of stuff) but this is actually a sc...

    This book was very captivating. I loved how it jumped back and forth from the present and the time period of three weeks prior to it happening and going forward from there. The whole story was an unraveling mystery and the ending had a huge plot twist that was super surprising. Needles...

    Period 8 New to the Library 297 Pages Hellworld by Tom Leveen is a tale of seemingly impossible mythologies mixed with science in a way that is sure to mess with your head. The story follows Abby, a 16-year-old who, for the past 5 years, has had to care for herself as well as her...

    I read the description of the book at a Barnes and Noble one day and had it on my list of books to read ever since. I was surprised at how unlike the description the book actually is. The characters are bland and not developed, in fact I found myself annoyed with them the majority of t...

    A quick read. The before and after chapters are distracting and suck out any tension. I would have rather read it in a linear sequence to build up the horror and tension than knowing what happens and then reading about what I already know. There are a wide variety of beliefs presented ...

    This Novel was rather interesting. I really likes how it was written, each chapter has a title saying 'Then' or 'Now', so you read about what happened in this so called cave and what's happening now on solid ground. It was very interesting and it really made you want to keep reading! I...

    Abby's mom disappeared five years ago while recording for her paranormal show The Spectral Spectrum. Now as Abby tries to move on for both her father's and her own sakes she discovers a book that raise more questions into her mother's disappearance. With the help of Charlie, who's fa...

    **I received this as an egalley from Edelweiss in return for an honest review.** I DNFed this as 65%. Normally if I have made it past the halfway point of a book I try to at least finish it, but I just couldn't with this. The constant back and forth on the timeline between the befor...

    Okay, so ultimately this was a entertaining read. The plot was interesting, and I read through this very quickly. However I really didn?t like the continuous back and forth of the ?past? and ?present? for each chapter, because the time between the two were already so close t...

    Hellworld starts off in the middle of a cave where a girl and her two friends think they are trapped forever -- and then immediately jumps back into the past where the decision to go into the cave began, and it continues to jump back and forth the rest of the novel. It's not my favorit...

    Well damn. This was so not what I was expecting. but I'm far from disappointed. This book was so so much more than what I thought. At first I wasn't sure about the alternate times from Then and Now that it was told in but it really helped build the plot up. It's creepy, insane and down...

    I thought that this book was a little scary because there was dead bodies and monsters and I was reading at night, so whenever I read it I could barely sleep. Something I liked about the book was I was always on my seat, something I didn't like was the book didn't start getting interes...

    So.....this book definitely had potential: monsters, missing ghost hunters, creepy cave, hell being unleashed, you know...but then the end of the book. Sigh....feels like the author tried to cram WAY TOO much into the last 40 pages of the book, either make a second book or make the fir...

    An enjoyable, quick read with suspense and at first predictable plot twists, that get turned on their head to keep you guessing! I enjoyed the unique "then" and "now" viewpoints that bring the book to a critical point! ...

    Rating of 4.5/5, This book was a apocalyptic thriller and it was amazing and surprised me with how good it was and how immersed I got into the characters and what was happening in the story and was terrifying in some parts. I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves apocalyptic no...

    It started off ok then fell flat. I hated that chapters went from Past to present but in the present it stated stuff that happened in the past and then when you read the chapter of the past you already knew what was going to happen. Got it? Lmao boring ...

    Damn! This better be a series, or at the very least, have a sequel! I really really love Tom Leveen and this was NO exception! So interesting with the monsters and the blend of philosophy and biblical references and all of it wrapped up in a scary-ass joy! I don't even LIKE scary! But ...

    This Novel was rather interesting. I really likes how it was written, each chapter has a title saying 'Then' or 'Now', so you read about what happened in this so called cave and what's happening now on solid ground. It was very interesting and it really made you want to keep reading! I...

    HELLWORLD is riveting, action-packed and unexpected. It teases answers to a mystery as the chapters alternate between the present and the past. It builds suspense as readers learn more about what Abby, Charlie, Selby, and Alex uncovered in the cave in their search for Abby?s mom. ...

    This was a fun ride of a book. Didn?t really know what to expect going in so when shit hit the fan I was pleasantly surprised with how it went down. I actually really enjoyed bouncing back and forth between past and present timelines. A lot of the time that frustrates me to know ...

    Original review @ http://sandrathebookworm.blogspot.com... I was sent an ARC by the author and publisher in exchange for an honest review. Hellworld was a very different from my usual reads; I was looking for a good YA horror book and Tom Leveen delivered! I have never enjoyed a ...

    I really looked forward to this one. It really tried to be a hell-ish read but all it left me with is a feeling of boredom and exasperation. When I first saw this book I thought "Oh, Hellworld? Sounds interesting!" I liked the idea of being in a cave deep underground and feeling...

    Horror, in any capacity, is not my thing. I don't watch scary movies, I've never read a Stephen King book, and bumps in the night make me incredibly nervous. I'm a big wuss, which makes it especially surprising I would pick up this book. I've loved Tom Leveen's books in the past, so I ...

    Personal Response: I thought that the book Hellworld by Tom Leveen was a decent story. This was a book where the point of view stayed the same but the time, present or past, switched back and forth. The author did an okay job of keeping the confusion between the tense changes to a min...

    This was a quick and easy read. This caught my eye because of the setting in AZ. I love reading books by authors who write about my home state. This definitely was not what I expected. I thought I'd be reading a supernatural story (afterlife type of stuff) but this is actually a sc...

    **I received this as an egalley from Edelweiss in return for an honest review.** I DNFed this as 65%. Normally if I have made it past the halfway point of a book I try to at least finish it, but I just couldn't with this. The constant back and forth on the timeline between the befor...

    Okay, so ultimately this was a entertaining read. The plot was interesting, and I read through this very quickly. However I really didn?t like the continuous back and forth of the ?past? and ?present? for each chapter, because the time between the two were already so close t...

    Hellworld starts off in the middle of a cave where a girl and her two friends think they are trapped forever -- and then immediately jumps back into the past where the decision to go into the cave began, and it continues to jump back and forth the rest of the novel. It's not my favorit...

    Well damn. This was so not what I was expecting. but I'm far from disappointed. This book was so so much more than what I thought. At first I wasn't sure about the alternate times from Then and Now that it was told in but it really helped build the plot up. It's creepy, insane and down...

    I thought that this book was a little scary because there was dead bodies and monsters and I was reading at night, so whenever I read it I could barely sleep. Something I liked about the book was I was always on my seat, something I didn't like was the book didn't start getting interes...

    So.....this book definitely had potential: monsters, missing ghost hunters, creepy cave, hell being unleashed, you know...but then the end of the book. Sigh....feels like the author tried to cram WAY TOO much into the last 40 pages of the book, either make a second book or make the fir...

    An enjoyable, quick read with suspense and at first predictable plot twists, that get turned on their head to keep you guessing! I enjoyed the unique "then" and "now" viewpoints that bring the book to a critical point! ...

    Rating of 4.5/5, This book was a apocalyptic thriller and it was amazing and surprised me with how good it was and how immersed I got into the characters and what was happening in the story and was terrifying in some parts. I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves apocalyptic no...
