Spolier Free Summary: Nothing Left To Lose by Dan Wells is a horror novel about a young man named John Cleaver. It’s the final book in the John Cleaver series. John has all the traits and desires necessary to be a serial killer. He simply chooses to be better. Lucky of him there are monsters in the world only he can hunt down. Unfortunately for him, his newest target has a reputation: “Run from Rain.” He’s alone. He’s being pursued by the FBI, and he’s facing the most feared creature on the planet.

Character:  John is one of the most compelling characters I’ve ever had the privilege to read about. I still feel strongly that the first three books were a more satisfying story as a whole, but the rest of the books were a fantastic extended look into someone you can’t stop listening too. If you enjoy deep characters with intense conflict, this is the series for you, and read the whole thing.

Description: Easy to scan. Nice details. No chunks that slow me down. My kind of pace!

Thanks for reading,

  1. A serial killer who chooses to channel his impulses into hunting monsters. That’s a pretty neat concept. On the one hand one might say “he’s a monster”, but knowing that he’s a monster, he’s making the best of his situation, and doing actual good. Certainly an interesting premise. I imagine scenes where he meets “normal” people are very interesting. It may be cliche but I really hope this series features a recurring “partner” who is the “normal person” who both criticizes John Cleaver, and receives some fairly unsettling “would you rather I carved you up” remarks.

    Thank you for the recommendation. I’ll add this to my Good Reads.
