Psycho Save Us

So I'm currently reading a book and its taking me a little bit longer then normal to read it. My excuse here is that it is the last week of school so things are a little crazy. . .personally I think its a pretty good excuse to use (though things aren't as crazy as think they are at times). I was thinking things where looking a little sad over here so I decided to talk/promote a series that I really like (but really love).

This book blew my mind, I still don't know if I should love it as much as I do, but really I can't help myself. I should know this by now, but anytime I am reluctant to start reading something it ends up being one of the best things I have read. Psycho Save Us by Chad Huskins touches on a lot of serious issues. Its listed as horror, not because a ghost or zombie shows up somewhere but because some truly horrifying things happen.

Psycho Save Us

by Chad Huskins

Two young girls with a gift for telepathy are abducted off the streets of Atlanta by vicious human traffickers, and their only help may be Spencer Pelletier, a psychopath recently escaped from prison, in this latest gripping horror-thriller from Chad Huskins.

5 Stars


I can't make myself write a synopsis of this book because it wouldn't do it any justice. Reading this book was like seeing a car accident and not being able to look away. It was sick and twisted and disturbing but I couldn't make myself stop reading it. I needed to know what the out come would be. And it almost feels wrong saying it was a good book because it was so messed up, but it was, it was one of the best books I have read this year. I felt for all the characters, was saddened by the fact that there are people like Spencer running around for real, and to know what Kaley and her sister Shan went through is something that really happens.

If there was any editing or grammar errors my brain didn't register them at all. I was so drawn in by what these poor girls where going through that I couldn't notice anything else.

The book was told from multiple points of view and they all flowed together seamlessly. You were never left floundering.

Would I recommend this book? Yes, as sad as this book is, it also puts into perspective the things you try to not notice that are all around us all the time.

I remember just kinda sitting there when I finished this book. I wanted to write a review for it but it left me speechless, I didn't think I could do it justice in a review, and honestly I still don't think my review did. But I couldn't leave it alone either.

I'm still conflicted on if I should have liked Spencer or not, but I guess that is the catch of it all. . . because of him being a psychopath he should be able to make anyone like him, and even though I can see the inner workings of his mind I still wanted to like him as a whole. 

Chad Huskins is a truly talented author, there are very few books that really pull me in like this one has, its been about 9 months since I first picked it up and I still think about it from time to time, it left that much of an impact on me. 

There is a second book in the series called Psycho Within Us that I have all ready read and reviewed on here, so now you know what the first book. If there is only one book you decide to read out of all the books I have reviewed on here let it be this one.


  1. This sounds like a perfect Halloween read. Although, it's freaks me out and I'm a huge wuss. But now I'm dying to know how things turn out!

    1. This book isn't horror in the sense that has something that is going to jump out and scare you, more in that it shows you the ugly side of life. Its scary because you know you are reading fiction, but the horrible things that are happening in the book are things that happen in real life.
