    1. Fires Rising is the latest novel by Michael Laimo, is another Good vs. Evil type book. The back states that the church is supposed to be renovated but in actuality it is being destroyed and the protagonist, Father Pilazzo was in a sense being evicted. The main plot is follows the unearthing of items found buried in the church leading to a Good vs. Evil struggle and the gathering of sides. There are a couple side plots involving Father Pilazzo’s current predicament and the homeless gathered in [...]

    2. Half-way through this book, I realized I didn't care. If you want your Horror fiction safe, traditional and "Americana" like Koontz, Saul and sometimes King, this might be for you. While Laimo seems a competent writer, this book is so Black VS. White, so pro-church Heroes, I couldn't really buy into it. Honestly, this read real close to something Tim LaHaye would spew out. While I'm not about to fault the author's faith in his writing, the homeless folks were far more interesting than the priest [...]

    3. New York, the metropolis of the East is shockingly succumbing to its end. The once glimmering cosmopolitan streets of Manhattan are under an ancient threat, it seems that deep in the bowels of the city a great evil has ceased its slumber and the once holy grounds of an old church are the new birth place of something that promises the end of man kind. Tamed in the past, darkness finds new followers who will do anything to bring it back to its full glory filled with blood and screams of the innoce [...]

    4. Michael Laimo's "Fires Rising" is a bit of a guilty pleasure, honestly. To start, the negatives: the writing is weak, to put it simply. Dramatic moments are written like this. To reinforce tension. When something scary is happening. Because Laimo can't naturally write fear and horror into his prose. So he has to manufacture it. And this happens. So very. Very. Often.The premise of the book is intriguing - an item of unimaginable evil is buried deep within a church, and of course it's been unwitt [...]

    5. 3 AND 1/2 STARS Fires Rising reminded me of a nice mix of movies from filmmaker John Carpenter. Take the standoff of trapped heroes from Assault On Precinct 13 and put them in a church, then add the growing evil and possession from Prince Of Darkness and you have a fairly accurate description of Fires Rising. While I didn't relate to the characters nearly as much as I did in his earlier novels such as Deep In The Darkness or Dead Souls, I enjoyed the constant threat of danger that Michael Laimo [...]

    6. This was the second book I picked up by Mr Laimo and I wasn't disappointed. The first book I read by him showed me that he had potential and that he was wanting to strive forward, in the horror genre. So I picked this book by Mr. Laimo. If you are into horror, gore, suspense, and a good storyline, this book is the right for you.

    7. A solid read. I liked the vagrants and bums better than the priest, would've liked to see them made more important, but still worth the buy!
