Review: Off Campus by Jeff Westwood and Charles Murphy

review by Claire Rees

Off Campus

The latest attack started without warning in the middle of October, just after eleven. This time, he hit Bellarmine College just outside of Boston.

My Thoughts

Although for me the story started off a little slow and confusing, I soon got into the story and started to enjoy it.

It ultimately follows three girls, Rosa, Lizzie and Helen. They have been kidnapped by a dark wizard and their close friends and boyfriends have been chosen as their ‘champions’ to face a multiple of horrific trials in order to save the girls they love and care for.

They are thrown into another dimension where they battle for their lives. Their savior, a man named Cale, seems to want to help them, but something seems wrong about his methods and actions.

The girls and their personal saviors are tortured in the worst ways and some lose their lives. What they don't know is that the dark wizard is looking for another body to inhabit as the one he is in is old and rotting.

They face nightmare after nightmare as they slowly lose their minds, but they do start to fight back towards the end.

The characters were good in the story and there were more than a few surprises throughout.

I would recommend Off Campus to those who enjoy a dark adventure, with all types of ghosts and ghouls, zombies and lost souls.

  1. I'm not sure this one is for me but, I enjoyed your review.

  2. That cover looks like a scary movie poster. LOL

    I really don't like zombies, but I do like wizards and ghosts so I'd probably have to read a bit to see.

    1. There are appearances from a lot of different horrible creatures. I liked that part, the imagination of the author is amazing

  3. I love love love the cover. I'm a big fan of ghosts but I'm not 100% sure on the zombies and and wizards. This one sounds so unusual though that I'm not sure I can resist.

  4. This one sounds intense, and what a great cover for this kind of story. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  5. What an intense sounding book but it sounds as though you enjoyed it and I do like a book with interesting characters.

  6. The book sound interesting, but the opening paragraph wasn't that good. Not enough to get a feel for the book.

  7. From what you describe, it sounds like this is a well-told story. However, this book is not for me; I totally avoid the horror genre. And that cover is sooooo creepy!

    Paradoxically, I do like that there's a wizard in the story, and that the girls are in another dimension.

    I'm glad you enjoyed reading this book!

    Thanks for the review! Thanks as well for stopping by my blog and commenting on my First Chapter, First Paragraph post!! :)

  8. The intro sounds gripping, but I can't do horror. The cover gives me the willies. I'll be participating next week!
