TheLoon1000x1000 72dpiThe isolated, maximum security prison for the criminally insane that houses some of the nation’s deadliest, most frightening psychopaths. But when a freak storm cuts off all communications and causes a massive power outage, the prisoners get loose…and find there is nowhere to go. The blizzard rages outside.

The inmates are now in charge and the staff must band together to survive.

And then they all discover that the inmates aren’t the most dangerous thing about The Loon. Because below the prison is a secret place. A dark place. A place where a creature of monstrous appetites has been born. And it’s very, very hungry….

The Loon is a #1 Amazon best seller written by novelist Michaelbrent Collings, whose other best sellers include Darkbound, Apparition, The Haunted, Rising Fears and Billy: Messenger of Powers.

THE LOON is available from Audible and Amazon.


“It’s always so nice to find one where hardcore asylum-crazy is done RIGHT! As opposed to, say, the Hollywood version….  THE LOON is, hands down, an excellent book.” – The Horror Fiction Review

“Highly recommended for horror and thriller lovers. It’s fast-moving, as it has to be, and bloody and violent, but not disgustingly gory. The Loon also includes a fun element of mad science to make this a well-developed ‘mad science and medical experimentation gone wrong’ story. Collings knows how to write thrillers, and I’m looking forward to reading more from him.” – Hellnotes
