Review Written By Author John Paul Allen for Amazon

Can I use the term ‘Kick Ass’ on an Amazon review? Let’s give it a shot. Ninety-Nine Souls by Thomas M. Malafarina kicks ass, and he starts the kicking from page one where he takes a few
moments to set things up then grabs you by the hair and drags you into one of the most gripping, horrifying, impossible-to-stop-reading books of 2010.

To say Tom Malafarina knows what his readers want, wouldn’t serve justice. Ninety-Nine Souls ignites that creeping essence we seek from horror and Malafarina shows us he has no boundaries.
Buy the book, grab a beer and tell the significant other to keep the refills coming. Seldom do I read a novel twice, but this one deserves an extra star.

About the book:

13 Nasty Endings coverNot all stories have a “happy ending”. Sometimes the forces of evil are just too strong to allow the characters, whether protagonist or antagonist, to survive unscathed. Sometimes it is because of revenge or sinister forces or simply bad Karma.

About Thomas Malafarina:

Thomas M. Malafarina was born July 23, 1955 in the town of Ashland, Pennsylvania, in the heart of the hard coal region. He was raised in a small, wood-framed row house along with his parents, his younger brother and two older sisters. Growing up in this blue-collar community Thomas learned the importance of hard work and dedication to family. These values instilled by his parents guided him through to his adult life.

Thomas has enjoyed a life-long love of writing, music and art and has been intrigued by the world of horror since before elementary school. While other kids were assembling model airplanes and cars, Thomas preferred to build Aurora Universal Studios Monster models of Frankenstein’s monster, the Wolf Man, Dracula and others. While others were drawing pictures of flowers and trees, he was drawing horrible monsters.

Thomas continued his love of all things horror by amassing an extensive collection of horror movies and books. Every year Thomas uses his artistic skills to create and donate a truckload or more of disturbing horror art sculptures and scenery to the Womelsdorf JC’s annual non-profit “Barn of Terror” Halloween Haunt.

For many years while working as a manufacturing engineer, technical trainer and technical writer, Thomas dreamed of finding some extra time write a horror novel. Ninety-Nine Souls is Thomas’s first book and is the culmination of that dream but signifies much more. It symbolizes a rekindled love Thomas has for writing and an enjoyment of creating horror stories that had burned deep within him unfulfilled for far too many years. Now with the flame relit, Thomas plans to produce many more works of horror fiction for the horror loving public’s enjoyment.

Thomas lives in South Heidelberg Township, just outside of Wernersville, PA with his wife JoAnne. They have three grown children and three grandchildren.
