About the Vicious Circuit Series


The Vicious Circuit

The Vicious Circuit series is a punk rock fantasy epic that starts with The Unnoticeables, continues with The Empty Ones, and concludes with Kill All Angels. Drunkenly swerving between horror, sci-fi, and fantasy, this the story of Carey, a young punk rocker in 1970s New York City, and Kaitlyn, an aspiring stuntwoman in modern day Los Angeles. The only thing these two have in common is the strange turn both of their lives have suddenly taken: Now, in addition to beer runs and casting calls, they have to deal with a series of mysterious disappearances, a sinister cult, what might be angels, and what are certainly demons. The invisible machines that run the universe have been hijacked, the very essence of life has been distilled into fuel, and the only ones who can stop it both tried to call in hungover today. If you’re not a praying person, now would be a good time to start.

Reviews for The Unnoticeables:

The Unnoticeables is a nightmarish and hilarious tour through modern day Hollywood, the 1970s New York Punk scene and Robert Brockway’s own diseased mind. I’m not prone to hyperbole, but I think it makes all previous books ever written look like big piles of shit.” — David Wong, New York Times bestselling author of THIS BOOK IS FULL OF SPIDERS and JOHN DIES AT THE END

“A nasty, freaky, and haphazardly funny horror story.” — Kirkus Book Reviews

“Like Hunter S. Thompson went drinking with Stephen King.” —Publishers Weekly

“The Unnoticeables is lean, mean, and perfectly balanced. It’s a rare find among urban fantasy novels: one that manages to genuinely terrify and excite in equal measure. It’s twisted, and original… an essential read for the fantasy lover looking for a story with a little more bite.” —Barnes & Noble Sci-fi/Fantasy

“The Unnoticeables is a raunchy ride through punk, horror and pop culture.” –NPR Book Reviews

The Unnoticeables is pure science fiction horror lurking behind the wry smile of a punk rocker in beer-stained blue jeans. Brockway writes confidently and with an utterly original voice, delivering a rude, smart, and at times terrifying story that I guarantee you’ve never seen before.” — Daniel H. Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of ROBOPOCALYPSE and ROBOGENESIS

The Unnoticeables has phenomenal voice… It never bogs down, never slows down, and never fails to be interesting.” — Staffer’s Book Review

The Unnoticeables is a visceral blend of brutality and cunning: bloody, innovative, and wildly compelling.” — Cherie Priest, author of BONESHAKER and MAPLECROFT

“Deliriously unhinged in the best way possible. Fantasy that is fast, funny, and downright freaky.” — Chuck Wendig, author of BLACKBIRDS and UNDER THE EMPYREAN SKY

“In a blaze of screaming guitars, The Unnoticeables will pogo into your imagination with anarchic black humour and a dark fantasy heart. This is first class punk rock urban fantasy and I want the t-shirt.” –Adam Christopher, author of EMPIRE STATE and THE BURNING DARK

    Just curious, when does this become available through my library and e-download? I really want to read this, but I can’t afford the book, only a library card (sadly, that’s not an exaggeration).

      No idea! That depends on the library, but you can always request that your library buy copies.
