    I won the book in a giveaway. First, there was Nothing. A Nothing void of reason or substance, want or will, with no name, no place, and no time. Only an incomprehensible emptiness, stretched across eternity and indifferent to all, even Itself.Then, from that Nothing, came two Somethings. One, a force of light, the other, a force of darkness, separated by a sprawling distance but connected by the same desire: to be complete. They searched the space between them for an end to their dissatisfaction, slowly growing closer until there was no space left. They collided, and the two Somethings gave birth to Everything.With a beginning like this, I felt that the book is going to be enjoyable. Thankfully, the story did not disappoint me. Allow me to welcome you to the Limbo. It is the land of the Reapers and a few other entities. I am not going to describe the place. You need to read it to appreciate its nuances. But, I will say that the author’s detailed descriptions will help you visualize this place.The Limbo has its own hierarchy – at the helm is It alias Mr. Rotten, followed by the Reapers – Elites and the Grunts, and then the Eyes – the lowest beings in the totem pole. Even the below the eyes, there are the Engravers.Oh! Did I say that the Reapers have their award ceremonies where these psychopaths compete for the most devious “reaps”. Here we meet John Grim the Reaper, the most revered killer in the Limbo. He is master in his art – he takes pride in it. But, at the same time a part of him also resents this. Once he was a normal man who lived with the love of his life – Dora. He struggles to hold on to the memories of his life as a human and pines for Dora. A meeting with Caitlin, an Engraver, would make him do the unthinkable. And now is the time when hell literally breaks loose – in Limbo and our world as well.You will be rooting for John Grim who turns out to be a decent chap after all. Pursued by vengeful cops and maniac Reapers (do I need to add homicidal!), John struggles to be united with Dora.Dora was also a well fleshed out character. Another character I want to mention is Rambo – John’s Eye. I felt so bad for him.I want to write a lot –manipulative Elite Reapers, Grunts gone berserk, the attack on our world and the list goes on. But, I must refrain.The ending was nice but a bit predictable. Nevertheless satisfying!I liked the setting, the spooky and ambience of the Limbo, the dark humour and of course the thrills the book provided. I had never read any book like this before and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I found the book bizarre – hats off to the author’s imagination and his skill as a wordsmith!The book is pretty dark and full of gore. So it might not be for everybody. But, if you do not mind the gore and all – then please go ahead and give the novel a try. I highly recommend this book to fans of fantasy and horror.

    Limbo by Marko Pandza is a unique and original take on Limbo and the Grim Reaper which had me working hard to visualize the setting, yet laughing at the grisly Reaper rewards, and what happens when someone escapes, when no one reigns in Limbo and it is allowed to ravage humans and Earth, totally out of control, leaving me queasy and asking the question What If.fundinmental

    Brilliant.Grotesque and gaudy this book sure as hell delivered.A story about soul-mates (the word more literal than you would expect), gore and witty banter, following John Grim, a writer who accidentally kills the love of his life and becomes –you guessed it- a reaper, the best there is in Limbo a place where sense goes to die and psychos gloat about their perfect kill. With that Grim finds himself struggling to keep a hold of what is left of his humanity along with a lust for a life long gone and trying to escape the barely conscious and twisted being that is LimboIf one thing is to be said about the author besides nailing multiple POVS is that he has a Killer imagination; and the right words to make it present in our mind’s eye, the descriptions throughout the book were amazing despite the unlikelihood of the scenarios in it.Especially the one about of the insides of Limbo, I reveled in it, it was a rich setting to be lost in. tho a bit too detailed at times for some tastes, enough so that I don’t think this book was made for everyoneThe idea of this book was original and perfectly executed, so much so that you find yourself cheering for the villains, salivating for the next kill, next to this was the fact that I couldn’t for the life of me predict what was to happen next, the story didn’t seem to follow any apparent path and had surprise and mischief hidden at every corner! with an amazing writing style that was rather poetic at times I can’t but recommend this book that had me in a death grip since the moment I laid eyes on it’s pages, the story will suck you into the depths of Limbo and you will not regret it.

    If Limbo were a movie, it would easily be rated 18. So gruesome in parts. Definitely not a book for everyone.

    This book was provided free in exchange for an honest review. This is no way impacts my opinion of the book or the content of my review.When I first started Limbo I was like, “What did I get myself into?” But the more I read, the more I didn’t want to put the book down! Limbo is definitely gruesome and disturbing in places, but that is offset by the funny and poetic moments sprinkled throughout the novel. The plot is very original and flows well. The imagination used to create the world of Limbo and its inhabitants – wow! – I don’t know whether to be impressed or a little frightened! I love how John Grim pulls at readers’ heart strings and clings to his humanity when it should have been stripped from him. Dora is just as gritty and well developed.The only real issue I had was there is a point in the book where the police are talking about a John Grim and how he disappeared a long time ago, long enough for a few wars, industrial revolutions and a several hundred more years on top of that. It threw me because the story seemed like it was set in modern times. So I was confused as to whether John and Dora’s story at the beginning of the novel was in the past and the rest of the novel is in the present or if their story was in the present and the rest in the future.Overall I loved this novel and give it five scythes!If you like this book you might try Human No Longer by Kathryn Meyer Griffith, Northwoods by Bill Schweigart, Shadow of the Oak (A Sal Van Sleen Adventure) by Eric Edstrom.

    This was such a bizarre story, really gave my imagination a work-out. I really like the story-telling and characters. Some scenes had my stomach turning, but all in this fantasy world called Limbo. I'm a big fan of this author, and I can't wait for his next novel!

    This book ruined me for all others, I found a soul mate!The book falls under the fantasy and horror category and one may expect the classic spook element through the plot, but this book is not just about chills of supernatural, it's about making you a part of their evil cult. The writing style is fresh, especially when the protagonist is Grim the Reaper himself. The book had me by the throat, the creep quotient was on the notch, and the much expected sass of Grim made the plot easier to swallow. I, somehow, binged on it. Being a picky reader, this book was work of destiny. It's nothing like I'd ever read, the romance is realistic enough to get you riled up. The transition from human to Limbo world was sheer fluidity, from the chores of the Reaper world to the oblivion of its existence among humans, the plot weaves and escalates inducing vertigo.The story of John torn between his lost humanity and celebrated Limbo self enthralls, while his said other half Dora, still makes him embark on a journey to find his way out of the not so organised Limbo. The book is a must read for it's fresh plot and poetic sense of writing. Makes one savor the dark corners of the mind we often shrug off on. There was a part where I'd started thinking like a Reaper, weird as I am. I really hope there is a series to this, because the ending has to be the beginning. Love for the author, it's a rare and a classic in it's own league.

    I cannot amply describe how impressed I was with this book. The best way to put it in perspective is, upon reading a closing thought, I would often find myself pausing from venturing on just so I could think to myself "Sh*t, this book is so good."I especially fell in love with the writing and how artfully ideas were painted; so many little passages presented themselves as mini revelations. This one was one of my favorites: "It began to exist, the way pristine glass reveals itself by shedding purity at the slightest touch." While the concept behind Limbo was heavy, I never felt burdened by it. The grotesque and campy vibe kept the overarching concept at bay, but still very much apart of the story.If the plot piqued your interest, don't bother questioning and just go for it! I highly, highly recommend this book.

    Free copy for honest review.This is a very well written horror/fantasy book about a man named John Grim. He is living his life with his girl friend Dora when the unimaginable happens, a gruesome death, after which he finds himself the most highly revered Reaper in Limbo. As John struggles to hang on to the last bit of his humanity he is forced to confront the ugly truth that he was lied to and must try to right the wrongs that have been done. Ultimately this is a book about destiny. I found the writing style refreshing and at times rather poetic and the author Marko Pandza has a remarkable imagination to have invented some of the rather horrifying scenes in this book. Overall I recommend this book to anyone who loves horror /fantasy books with a creative story line and gruesome depictions.

    As you may all have noticed I don't usually read horror novels especially not at this time of year but this book really sounded interesting so I decided to give it a shot. I am so happy that I did because it is a very good book that kept me reading from the very beginning.It is different compared to any other books I have read and it is so very well written. I am going to get my husband to read this one too because I know he will love this book as much as I do.If you are looking for a new horror novel to read , I highly recommend Limbo.

    I am horrible at this updating thing...SORRY! I actually received this book back in Feb. after winning giveaway. Personally, I have a hard time connecting to books that have a male lead. I know it's unfair to some great books/authors. I would still recommend this to someone, as a thanks to the author.
