An evil force is at work at the Hospital where Nathan is recovering from injuries he received at the hands of his Mom’s abusive ex-boyfriend. Demonic looking men with pale faces and glowing eyes lurk in the shadows. Someone is harvesting skin and organs from living donors against their will. In his dreams, Nathan can see these demons in their true form -- evil creatures who feed on the fear and hatred they create in their victims. Nathan’s only ally is the Doctor who cares for him. Bound together by their common legacy, they alone seem to share the ability to see the demons for what they truly are. Together they must find a way to stop these creatures before they, and their loved ones, become the next victims.… (mer)

Nathan is a five year old boy that has found his was to the ER after an “accident” with his mother’s boyfriend, Steven. There he meets Dr. Jason Gelman. Jason sees himself in Nathan since he grew up in an abusive situation too. Enter Mr. Clarke and Mr. Smith, two strange cops that are there to question Steven about the accident with Nathan.

Mr. Clarke and Mr. Smith are creatures that can disguise their appearance. But they are attracted to the hospital with its pain and suffering. There they harvest organs from patients and feed on the fear and pain of their victims. Jason can also see the creatures and is trying everything he can to protect Jenny, the nurse that he loves, Nathan, and other kids safe.

This is a great horror story. I couldn’t put the book down. I was so wrapped up in the book that when I put it down it was all I could think about. The setting was well written and I just fell in love with poor Nathan. I admit that even though the creatures were supposed to be evil, I couldn’t help cheering for them. It’s a rare story that has me cheering for the bad guys.

This is a great, gory horror story. It has a little bit of everything including a great plot. You have to check this book out.

I received this book from the Early Reviewer Program with Library Thing in exchange for an honest review. ( )

The Donors is a macabre tale that spins between the world of the known and a shadowy world where these creatures known as the Lizard Men prey on unsuspecting victims of a hospital. Their aim is to inflict as much pain and suffering on their victims as they can, meanwhile harvesting skin and organs from the donors. Nathan, a young boy who finds himself in the hospital after being horribly burned by his mother’s boyfriend, has a special gift that makes him a threat to the Lizard Men. Together with Jason Gelman, the ER doc who first saw him when he was admitted to the hospital, they must stop the Lizard Men from claiming more victims, including their loved ones.

This is a novel that puts front and center of it the eerie and the creepy. There are many chilling moments throughout the novel. The Lizard Men are unique horror villains who have sinister motives, even when at first it appears they are delivering their malice to people who deserve it. There are times along the way where some aspects of the story are a little difficult to understand, but the ending to the story is well set up. The tension continues to build throughout the narrative and the climax has a fiery conclusion. If you enjoy good horror, then this is a novel you will want to read.

An interesting premise, though poorly delivered.

The premise of Wilson’s book was reasonable enough, but it could have been a far more frightening and gripping book if time had been taken to build the suspense, and not give away too much too soon; to allow the story to build more slowly and to show more of what was going on, rather than tell all there was to know. Most of the ‘horror’ in the book came from half-heartedly written descriptions of a person being eaten alive by the bad guys in the story… and it was never really explained who those bad guys were, or where they came from – though it was overly stated as to what they were.

Although the characters were likable enough, they were somewhat two dimensional and overly stereotypical. There was nothing really outstanding about any of them. I thought at times Wilson overdid the effort to make the narrative sound childlike, since one of the main characters in the story is a young boy, it made for a very self-conscious text.

In the end I felt I didn't really understand the 'how' of the defeat of the bad guys either... other than a poorly hidden admonition for people to believe in themselves and anything is possible. With a rewrite, the book could be much better than it is currently. ( )

Good book. Creepy that is reminiscent of stephen king line, only I found it easier to read. I find I like stephenking better in movie form. Enjoyed it thoroughly and would recommend it to others. ( )
