But legends can lie.

When Paug and Nadea revive their hero from sleep, his virtue is far from clear.

Is he really their Savior or their Destroyer?

“A well thought out storyline. Romance, war, fear, and heartache. Hard to put down once you start to read it.” – Tony C.

“The Destroyer entirely exceeded my expectations for the genre.” – Daniel S.

Don’t Read After Dark

From the #1 bestselling author in Horror, Men’s Adcventure, War, and Techno-thrillers, Carolyn McCray, comes a horror collection to keep you up all night long if you dare!

**Warning, this collection is not for the squeamish or faint of heart. There is graphic violence, rough language, and blood to spare. Please do not buy this book if you are easily offended or terrified! However if you enjoy Saw/Hostel-style horror and a good slasher flick, read on!

Praise for Carolyn’s Horror Stories…
“Oh, unless you have a strong stomach, you probably will not want to eat anything while reading this book. It is very, very graphic and will most likely give me nightmares. Supper is about a group of college kids who go out on a fact-finding vacation during spring break. They find more than they’re looking for when they run out of gas on a dark deserted, creepy part of nowhere. Deliverance and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre comes to mind. But things aren’t always what they seem. Get’s ya in the mood for a ghoulish Halloween. Baaahaaaahaaaha!”

“I am an avid reader always looking for something original and fresh. Well, Carolyn Mcray is it!! By accident I came across this author, she may have been recommened to me by Amazon itself. This summer she was my go to author could not get enough of her books, or short stories!!! With this short story you have the Texas Chain Massacre family meets the 2012 Cannabalistic Tullocks Farm. It’s faced paced, gory, and at times a funny, especially when the “tables” are turned. That’s when it becomes twisted!!! This is all I will say. Some of the reviews I’ve been reading lately are telling me the whole entire story. What’s the point??? Could not put it down. This short story actually leaves a possible opening end for a sequel. If you like this then next step is to buy her novel “Plain Jane” You will love it!!!!”
Robin Lee
Amazon Reviewer

This collection includes…

Fresh Meat (a horror novella): Serial Killer Death Match, need we say more?
Widowmaker (a full-length horror novel): A thriller for horror fans
All Hallow’s Eve (a full-length horror novel): The one night it is BAD to be good!
Salechii (a full-length novel): A shark park. What could go wrong?
Club Death (a horror novella): Come for the dancing. Stay because, well, a madman has you trapped inside
Rook (a horror novella): Let’s stop the Apocolypse, people! Supernatural humorous horror
Supper: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre style short story

More praise for McCray’s horror…

“Scary and smart, All Hallow’s Eve is perfect for anyone who wants to read a horror story that hits them in the gut. From the intricate psychopathology of the serial killer, to the hair-raising tension, to the skewering of pop culture, All Hallow’s Eve is simply a great read.”
Your Need To Read
Book Reviewer

“This was surprisingly creepy. Usually by about half way through a book like this you know who the killer is. I really didn’t connect the dots on this one… Just what a demented serial killer needs to round up a group of teens for the slaughter. The author did not pull any punches in the way the victims died… But what I liked best was that the killer was completely
unrepentant, there was no oh gee moment at the end where the killer realizes he was doing something wrong and is sorry. If it is a horror book, horrify me. This one did.”

know

The Knowing: Book One

It starts with a school shooting.
It ends with the return of an evil as ancient as the skeleton of the universe.

In the middle, normal garden-variety people must figure out how to live their everyday lives—how to survive!—after they discover that all those childhood horror stories … well, most of them are true.

When the hot call comes over the radio: “Code Red! Active shooter at Carlisle Elementary School,” Police Sergeant Jack Carpenter has one job and only one job. Find the gunman; take him out. He rushes into the school, fully armed and focused on cold, hard reality. But what happens to him in the next few hours shatters the world as he has always known it. And in the next three days, everything Jack Carpenter believes about himself, about life and reality, about good and evil and the whole nature of the universe will be challenged.

Can it possibly be true—seriously?—that invisible monsters prowl among us every day?

That there exists in the real world a winged creature more horrifying than any Hollywood-animated, computer-generated, mechanical unreality?

And that the single-minded mission of that beast—a creation of absolute, soul-less evil—is tokill Jack Carpenter?

That’s crazy! Fairy-tale-science-fiction-horror-movie-bogeyman crap!

Bottom line: it flat-out cannot possibly be true.

But it is.

Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire. Now the world at large thinks Samantha has developed a rare skin disease, a disease which forces her to quit her day job and stay out of the light of the sun. Now working the night shift as a private investigator, Samantha is hired by Kingsley Fulcrum to investigate the murder attempt on his life, a horrific scene captured on TV and seen around the country. But as the case unfolds, Samantha discovers Kingsley isn’t exactly what he appears to be; after all, there is a reason why he survived five shots to the head.

“I couldn’t help myself and read this is one sitting.” – simon211175, Amazon Vine Voice

bank

The Bank of the River

Steven is anticipating a quiet sabbatical at a new home. Recently divorced and with a son in college, he should have plenty of time to himself. Instead, he’s kept up at night by strange knockings – a series of four raps, a pause, and then another four. They arrive every night at the same time.

Steven is determined to find a rational explanation. When the knockings progress to strange apparitions, Steven believes he must have a brain tumor.

His father, Roy, recognizes the problems in Steven’s home because he’s seen them before. Roy has “the gift,” and can enter a place called The River, where he can see things others cannot. In The River, Roy discovers there are far more sinister forces at work in Steven’s home than just ghosts.

Steven shares Roy’s ability, but is skeptical of it. When the apparitions intensify and attack, Steven is forced to learn how to fight back if he wants to save himself and his father.

The Bank of the River is a fast-paced and suspenseful paranormal novel that confronts evil, ghosts, and the dead — and explores the supernatural gifts a father and son use to fight them.

The Bank of the River is the first book in The River series.

Praise for The River Series from Amazon readers
“Truly scary.”

“Finally found a book that got under my nerves!”

“Couldn’t put it down…wanted the story to go on and on.”

“Very few authors can pull me in immediately and make me feel as though I were reading about old friends. Stephen King always has, and I can now add Michael Richan to the list.”

“Awesome ghost story with wonderful characters and a great plot!”

“Some of the most delightful reading I have done in a long time.”

“This was a great horror book. I absolutely loved it, and I know you will too! Keep the lights on when reading!”

Valley Of Death, Zombie Trailer Park 

What kind of zombies are they?
There has been an interesting but ultimately pointless debate going on for years about what constitutes a zombie. Is it a dead person who walks around causing mayhem? Or is it someone who is violently insane and seeks only to kill and destroy? Why not both?

Nestled in a remote valley, the residents of The Albuquerque Springs Trailer Park have lived out there lives nearly forgotten by the rest of the world. The trailer park is home to dozens of illegal immigrants, a hermit who has turned his back on society, a veteran of World War 2, a grumpy old woman, a family of Meth cookers known to local police officials as the Redneck Gourmets, and a beautiful young woman, are just a few.
Life was peaceful and quiet (actually quite boring) until a deadly industrial accident killed Juan, one of the illegal immigrants. His friends and neighbors promised to dispose of the victim’s body. Unfortunately, he came back and disposed of them- one mouthwatering bite at a time.

William Robert Bebb: Who is he?
Born in southern California in the 1960’s, William Bebb is a man of many talents. In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, he earned scholarships for Forensic Speaking at two universities. William was also Editor of a University of Alabama at Birmingham’s premier newspaper from 1989 to 1991.

All Together Now: A Zombie Story

“ALL TOGETHER NOW: A ZOMBIE STORY is by turns disgusting, terrifying, funny, and heartbreaking. Fans of THE WALKING DEAD will eat it up like, well, zombies munching fresh brains. A stellar debut from a novelist to watch!”
—Mike Mullin, award-winning author of ASHFALL, ASHEN WINTER, and SUNRISE

Fifteen-year-old Ricky Genero is writing a journal of the zombie apocalypse. His high school has burned to the ground, his friends are all either dead or shambling corpses roaming the earth in search of human flesh, and his best friend died saving his six-year-old brother Chuck from a zombie horde. When Chuck is bitten and infected with the zombie virus, Ricky must travel among the walking dead in search of a cure.

WARNING
This YOUNG ADULT novel is mean and nasty and intended for a mature audience. It is absolutely not appropriate for younger readers. ALL TOGETHER NOW: A ZOMBIE STORY is a gruesome, repugnant tale featuring horrific acts of violence sure to warp young minds.

They moaned in unison, the sound of each harmonizing with the moans of the others so I couldn’t tell if the moans were coming from three zombies, or five, or ten. All I knew for sure is they were on the other side of the door.

Lovienthal Montague is overweight, balding, and has zero life skills. At age 50, he finds himself an unemployed, lifelong welfare recipient as well as a recreational drug user living in a rundown mobile home in Ocean View Trailer Park.

And, only united as a family, do they find lies their best chance at survival.

Intruders: The Invasion: A Post-Apocalyptic, Alien Invasion Thriller

A day later, meteorites hit the earth, releasing a strange dust into the air.

The dead rise, ravenous. The living are dragged underground by creatures out of nightmares.

As seventeen year old Zoe and a ragtag team of survivors soon discovers. . .

There is nowhere to run.

The troubles begin when a meteor hits the city, then her niece vanishes, Zoe was the initial suspect, until the same thing happened to all the babies and kids. Before anyone can come to grips and understand what happened, the zombies come into the scene….and finally the aliens.

The story itself is like a combination of all the popular aliens and zombie movies. What made it spooky for me, is the fact that no matter how well prepared the human race feels, or how many movies we watch, we really won’t know how to defend ourselves if this kind of invasion happens.

Very good actions scenes and a solid plot that made me want to read the next installment.

Its two-stories perched high on a bluff on the Willamette River, not in isolation, but in Portland, Oregon, a city of more than six hundred thousand souls. In decay the house remained defiant, but that was true of most historic buildings that had survived into the new millennium.

Evil may have walked its halls, but the building itself wasn’t evil in any of its parts. Its foundation didn’t disturb any burial plots, American Indian or otherwise, and its architectural design wasn’t a demonic summoning glyph, though these theories had been suggested each time the house had been partially torn down and rebuilt.

People feared the place like they feared the dark. Hope died there. Horror put down roots. But Jacobi House was like any other house.

Save for one thing.

Jacobi House needed forgiveness. And it would have forgiveness, hell or high heaven.

Grace Lost

The fine blue mist was impossible to see falling from the night sky. It coated everything in its path: houses, cars, toys left in yards by children, the ground. By sunrise, it would be impossible to detect. The veil of toxic substance was thin, but it was enough to do the harm for which it was intended. Anyone unlucky enough to be outside at the time of contamination would die. The airplanes that flew that night would be some of the last.

The darkness of night would give way to morning light, as it always had. People would awake in search of a lazy weekend breakfast. Mothers would begin preparing children for a day of play. Dogs would whine to go outside. The dead would rise.

Zoe’s been on her own since she was a teenager, when tragedy took her family. Living in a remote small town, she withdrew from society. Her longtime friend, Adam Boggs, left her even more broken when he left for college and stopped answering her calls and letters. When he’s back in town for a visit, they attempt to reconcile. The next morning brings an end to life as they knew it.

Fleeing for safety, they soon cross paths with other survivors. It doesn’t take long until they realize that the dead are not the only things to fear.

Book one of the Grace Series. Intended for mature audiences. A portion of all proceeds of this series will be donated to Strong Against Cancer – helping find a cure for childhood cancer.

dying

Dying for a Living

Called “addictive” by New York Times Bestseller Darynda Jones, those interested in strong female protagonists are sure to take a shine to Jesse Sullivan, the reluctant anti-hero of the series.

Synopsis for Dying for a Living:
On the morning before her 67th death, it is business as usual for Jesse Sullivan: meet with the mortician, counsel soon-to-be-dead clients, and have coffee while reading the latest regeneration theory. Jesse dies for a living, literally. As a Necronite, she is one of the population’s rare 2% who
can serve as a death replacement agent, dying so others don’t have to. Although each death is different, the result is the same: a life is saved, and Jesse resurrects days later with sore muscles, new scars, and another hole in her memory.

But when Jesse is murdered and becomes the sole suspect in a federal investigation, more than her freedom and sanity are at stake. She must catch the killer herself–or die trying.

Monsters All the Way Down

Monsters All the Way Down contains an intriguing blend of Philip K. Dick’s mind-bending paranoia and H. P. Lovecraft’s cosmic horror. Ryan McSwain uses complex characters and familiar ideas to craft a story full of twists to keep you guessing right up to the end and beyond.

If I had any criticism, it would be that, like the author, I have two young children. Sleep is a precious thing in my world, and this book kept me up on multiple nights because I just couldn’t stop reading. But that’s what coffee is for, and the experience was well worth it.

A Pumpkins’ Halloween: A Novella

A Pumpkins’ Halloween follows the story telling of five jack-o-lanterns as they come to life on Halloween evening. As the jack-o-lanterns banter back and forth while giving each other grief, they find themselves forced to look out on the street because, after all, they’re stationary, they’re pumpkins. As Halloween progresses, each jack-o-lantern takes turns telling a story in celebration of the holiday and one will ultimately be judged the winner at night’s end. However, there is a stipulation.

Lovienthal Montague Spiritual Detective: A Zombie Novel 

A look into the life of Lovienthal Montague:

Lovienthal Montague is overweight, balding, and has zero life skills. At age 50, he finds himself an unemployed, lifelong welfare recipient as well as a recreational drug user living in a rundown mobile home in Ocean View Trailer Park.

Often harassed and mocked by the neighborhood children, and loathed by society’s adults, Lovienthal on any other Friday morning would find himself with no good reason to even get out of bed (and thereby usually electing to sleep in and nurse his hangover), but this Friday is like no other, because today’s the day Lovienthal stops working for the man and starts working for himself. He has decided to become an entrepreneur and start up the Lovienthal Montague Spiritual Detective Agency which its mission statement is to teach people long caught up in society’s rat race how to become righteous again–only Lovienthal’s first day on the job doesn’t go exactly as planned.

After spending the afternoon putting up fliers and passing out business cards, Lovienthal and his friends (a very motley crew of society’s rejects) find themselves suddenly thrown into a world were the dead would rather walk the streets and have him and his friends for dinner rather than just stay dead.

Lovienthal along with his trusty dog Chuckles, several friends (including his drug dealer), a few rednecks, and a couple of Laotian boys find that they are forced to put aside their petty differences and mistrust of each other and will have to work together if they’re ever going to make it out of the apocalypse alive.

In a world that makes each of them feel like they’re utterly alone, worthless, and a born loser, Lovienthal and his friends, only through coming together as a team and caring for one another instead of just themselves, find that they’re each unique, courageous, and have self-worth, even if society doesn’t always see them that way. And, only united as a family, do they find lies their best chance at survival.

valley

Valley Of Death, Zombie Trailer Park

What kind of zombies are they?
There has been an interesting but ultimately pointless debate going on for years about what constitutes a zombie. Is it a dead person who walks around causing mayhem? Or is it someone who is violently insane and seeks only to kill and destroy? Why not both?

Nestled in a remote valley, the residents of The Albuquerque Springs Trailer Park have lived out there lives nearly forgotten by the rest of the world. The trailer park is home to dozens of illegal immigrants, a hermit who has turned his back on society, a veteran of World War 2, a grumpy old woman, a family of Meth cookers known to local police officials as the Redneck Gourmets, and a beautiful young woman, are just a few.
Life was peaceful and quiet (actually quite boring) until a deadly industrial accident killed Juan, one of the illegal immigrants. His friends and neighbors promised to dispose of the victim’s body. Unfortunately, he came back and disposed of them- one mouthwatering bite at a time.

William Robert Bebb: Who is he?
Born in southern California in the 1960’s, William Bebb is a man of many talents. In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, he earned scholarships for Forensic Speaking at two universities. William was also Editor of a University of Alabama at Birmingham’s premier newspaper from 1989 to 1991.

trap

Trapped in Whittier

Just because you don’t believe in something doesn’t mean it can’t kill you.

The two hundred residents of the strange, isolated town of Whittier, Alaska, are convinced that vengeful spirits and a horrific curse have doomed them to lives of eternal darkness.

When Trent finds himself trapped in Whittier with no way to leave until the next morning, he’s forced to escape the townspeople, reassess his own beliefs, and fight for his life against unnatural forces that his logical mind can’t explain.

Want a great bargain? Pick up all three books in The Whittier Trilogy bundle for only $3.99 by pasting the following Amazon url into your browser:

Surrounded by mountains on three sides and arctic water on the fourth, Whittier is isolated. Not even large enough to run a 5K course, the town seems smaller than its only claim-to-fame cruise ship. The town is remote, colder than surrounding towns, and has a posted bear warning.

During his cruise, Trent discovers many things as he runs through his impromptu act for the other passengers. First, the town is haunted. Second, his date with a beautiful Whittier woman may not turn out the way he expected. And last, he receives a warning: don’t get stranded in Whittier overnight.

With expert foreshadowing and deft descriptions, the author sends anticipatory shivers down your spine. The characters add a nice spicing to the story as it moves along at a brisk pace. I highly recommend the book.

cure

After the Cure

Six years ago, the tiny surviving community of Immune humans found a cure, and the Infected began to wake up and realize what they’d done. And what had been done to them.

Over time, society began to rebuild itself. Now it is ready to judge those responsible for the Plague. Nella Rider, the court psychologist and Frank Courtlen a defense attorney are trying to establish the truth. But more depends on it than they know. They race to find the answers they need before the fragile remains of humanity vanish for good.

I could NOT put it down. The characters are fleshed out really well (pardon the pun). Even the “villian” is a complex character. I found the storyline to be very believable (I hate books with giant plot holes). And consistent. It annoys the crap out of me when authors break the rules of their own universe.

This is a GREAT read, especially since it’s so cheap. I am looking forward to the almost-inevitable movie. Although, there were some scenes in the book that were so… disturbing, I was thinking, “I hope that gets cut from the movie *shudder*.”

Great book. Great story. Great characters. I’m looking forward to more from this author.

Night Chill

Night Chill is now a 2014 Foreword Reviews Book of the Year Finalist.

“Readers looking for a good scare will delight in this novel, even if they suddenly feel compelled to sleep with the lights on.”- Publishers Weekly

A long time reader of Dean Koontz, I would dare say Night Chill was up there with some of the best from Mr. Koontz. Plenty of twists and turns that kept me just wanting to keep reading. – Aussie Kindle Fanatic

Lovienthal Montague Spiritual Detective: A Zombie Novel

A look into the life of Lovienthal Montague:

Lovienthal Montague is overweight, balding, and has zero life skills. At age 50, he finds himself an unemployed, lifelong welfare recipient as well as a recreational drug user living in a rundown mobile home in Ocean View Trailer Park.

Often harassed and mocked by the neighborhood children, and loathed by society’s adults, Lovienthal on any other Friday morning would find himself with no good reason to even get out of bed (and thereby usually electing to sleep in and nurse his hangover), but this Friday is like no other, because today’s the day Lovienthal stops working for the man and starts working for himself. He has decided to become an entrepreneur and start up the Lovienthal Montague Spiritual Detective Agency which its mission statement is to teach people long caught up in society’s rat race how to become righteous again–only Lovienthal’s first day on the job doesn’t go exactly as planned.

After spending the afternoon putting up fliers and passing out business cards, Lovienthal and his friends (a very motley crew of society’s rejects) find themselves suddenly thrown into a world were the dead would rather walk the streets and have him and his friends for dinner rather than just stay dead.

Lovienthal along with his trusty dog Chuckles, several friends (including his drug dealer), a few rednecks, and a couple of Laotian boys find that they are forced to put aside their petty differences and mistrust of each other and will have to work together if they’re ever going to make it out of the apocalypse alive.

In a world that makes each of them feel like they’re utterly alone, worthless, and a born loser, Lovienthal and his friends, only through coming together as a team and caring for one another instead of just themselves, find that they’re each unique, courageous, and have self-worth, even if society doesn’t always see them that way. And, only united as a family, do they find lies their best chance at survival.

Lovienthal Montague Spiritual Detective also has alternating chapters which follow an Air Force commander’s investigation into the zombie outbreak.

But Zed Zane is oblivious. He needs to borrow rent money from his parents. He gets up Sunday morning, drinks enough tequila to stifle his pride and heads to his mom’s house for a lunch of begging, again.

But something is wrong. There’s blood in the foyer. His mother’s corpse is on the living room floor. Zed’s stepdad, Dan is wild with crazy-eyed violence and attacks Zed when he comes into the house. They struggle into the kitchen. Dan’s yellow teeth tear at Zed’s arm but he grabs a knife and stabs Dan, thirty-seven times, or so the police later say.

Book 2
Slow Burn: Infected picks up the story of Zed, Murphy, and Jerome where Slow Burn: Zero Day ended.

All three have been infected but have not succumbed to the most pernicious symptoms of the virus. Nevertheless, their band of fearful survivors, have ostracized them.

Back on the street, with weapons to defend themselves but little food in their packs, they embark on a search for Murphy’s family while following a rumor of safe haven in the form of a doomsday bunker in east Austin.

But the world is more hazardous than they know. They expect violence from the voracious infected but they have harsh lessons to learn about the uninfected. And humans to support the infrastructure of modern civilization, they find that danger comes in many forms.

Book 3
Zed is saying goodbye to one friend and pressing forward with two new ones, Mandi, whom Zed and Murphy rescued from the bunker, is immune to the virus, and Russell, also a slow burn, but lower-functioning, childlike and docile.

After seeing the carnage at the dormitory, a raging, vengeful Zed wants only to kill Mark, his nemesis and the former leader of the ROTC squad. Since Mark has disappeared, Zed unleashes his fury on untold numbers of infected in his path as he makes his way back to the hospital, in an attempt to rescue Steph, a nurse whom he befriended while seeking help for the feverish Murphy shortly after the prison riot. But the brave medical staff, holed up on the tenth floor of the hospital, and running out of provisions, has decided to take matters in hand by exposing themselves to the virus, and shooting those who “turn.” Zed is determined not to face another loss, but time is running out.

EXTRACT FROM VAMPIRE – IN THE BEGINNING

‘Tom’s mother Martha was sprawled across the large kitchen table, her clothes ripped, and in places, torn completely away; her breasts fell from her laced bodice, flaccid and drooping to the sides of her lifeless body. Her legs were at a strange angle, and her skirts bunched up into a ball at her waist. I could see, even from where I was standing, that she was dead! Martha’s eyes were open, staring into nothingness and devoid of life, but it was her throat that caught my attention, it gaped open, and it looked like, what I imagined, the huge black cavern of hell to look like.’

end

The End of the Trail

The End of the Trail uses a type of contemporary poetry/prose mix that refuses to let the reader get comfortable. You are never certain what is a fanciful dream, tall tale, twisted nightmare, or harsh reality. Also, the genius of not giving anyone a name, but only titles, made it possible to imprint any likeness that I wanted onto each and every character. That freedom was both intoxicating and exhilarating. The worst people you know can be the MC, or the King, and likewise your best friends and loved ones. Anything is possible.

The world Rakovich creates is equally thrilling, if incredibly dark. Cannibals, witches, disfigured creatures that were once great men, and beasts in sheep’s clothing (nicely done re-imagining here specifically) fill this skeletal frame of a land. Even the dead are not safe or kept sacred here. However, no matter how desolate, there is something compelling here, some value to be had in the wake of such suffering.

The quest the MC goes on matters little, and that’s fine, as it is just a means to the end of sharing this medieval apocalyptic nightmare. The ending is the green icing on a Troll 2 cake, cheeky and twisted, and providing the one laugh that Rakovich is kind enough to give. It’s all in fun, sick and perverse fun, but fun nonetheless.

Give it a go and see what you think, it’s certainly worth your time!

The Infected: Jim’s First Day

New sneak peek of Joseph Zuko’s up coming novel.A few chapters from Sweet Home has been added to the end of this book. Read on to check out the next level of horror in the Zuko catalog.

A review by author Sam Siv

Joe Zombie Zuko, the self-proclaimed “Zombie nut”…his new book: `The Infected: Jim’s First Day’ is a thrill ride for your mind. It delivers jam-pack thrills and puts you at the edge of your seat. Each page grabs you, transitioned smoothly and forces you to read on….I finished the book in one day!

The characters were well developed (Jim is likeable and relatable) – The scenes/environment was surreal – The Intensity at times was too much (just how I like it) – Just the right amount of comedy.

As an author myself, I know how much time and effort it took to write a book like this; I thought Joe `Zombie’ Zuko could have charged more for his book. The entertainment value and the mental escape are well worth at least 2-3 times the current price. I would have easily paid 2-3 times more…. I slam and piss 2 star bucks coffee daily and never got this sort of value.

Overall I gave the book, a well earned 5 stars…It has all the elements of a great `Zombie Book Series’…eventually a movie?

I can’t wait for your next release.

Cades Cove: The Curse of Allie Mae 

Buried deep in a ravine in the picturesque Smoky Mountains is a very dark secret.

David Hobbs, vacationing with his wife Miriam, inadvertently stumbles upon a small cloth ‘keepsake’ bag and a broken tooth. A human tooth. Miriam begs David to hand the bag and tooth over to park officials, but he ignores his wife’s pleas and secretly keeps the ‘harmless’ items. The action opens a doorway that had been closed for nearly a hundred years and unleashes hell on earth, or at least hell in the lives of David and Miriam.

Following the brutal murder of his best friend in Denver, and unprovoked attack on his oldest son, David desperately seeks to understand why a mysterious teenage girl has chosen to terrorize him and the males closest to him. To prevent further devastation to his family and end the wanton bloodshed, he returns to the enchanted hills of eastern Tennessee, where a terrible truth awaits discovery… one that forces him to face the consequences for the unpaid sins of his ancestors.

Acclaim for Aiden James:

“The intense writing style of Aiden James kept my eyes glued to the story and the pages seemed to fly by at warp speed. …Twists, turns, and surprises pop up at random times to keep the reader off balance. It all blends together to create one of the best stories I have read all year.”
–Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews for “The Devil’s Paradise”

“Aiden James has written a deeply psychological, gripping tale that keeps the readers hooked from page one.”
–Bookfinds review for “The Forgotten Eden”

“Aiden James writing style flows very easily and I found that “Cades Cove” snowballed into a very gripping tale. Clearly the strengths in the piece were as the spirit’s interaction became prevalent with the family… The Indian lore and ceremonies and the flashbacks to Allie Mae’s (earthly) demise were very powerful. I think those aspects separated the work from what we’ve seen before in horror and ghost tales.”
–Evelyn Klebert, author of “A Ghost of a Chance” and “Dragonflies”

“Aiden James has a keen eye for detail and an uncanny knack for scaring the hell out of me. We are watching a master at work. “The Raven Mocker” is a nearly perfect thriller. Ghost stories don’t get any better than this.”
–J.R. Rain, Bestselling author of the “Vampire for Hire” series

“As with the previous titles I have read by this author, I found the author’s writing style to be silky smooth and the main plot line to be extremely creative. The fertile imagination of Aiden James definitely knows what today’s readers want to see in their stories.”
–Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews for “The Vampires’ Last Lover”

gods

Gods of Anthem

Sixteen-year-old prodigy, Liza Randusky, waits imprisoned, blamed for the undead plague that’s slowly destroying the planet. Banished to an island where she’ll never play her beloved piano again, Liza’s steadfast sense of justice and passion for music may have the power to change her destiny. But will it be enough…

To strike back at the new world order, the troubled son of a preacher, Thomas Ripley-Hatter, suffers unspeakable alterations by the Underground to join a secret Army. Tommy knows that all hope lies in human-weapons like himself, and that somehow he must cling to his sanity…while letting loose the monster to win.

The battle begins for the last-standing sliver of humanity: Anthem.

**Early Praise for Gods of Anthem**
Have you ever come across a book that crawls inside your soul from page one and obliterates your heart by the end? This book did that to me and so much more.

In Gods of Anthem, Logan Keys’ debut novel, the world has been destroyed and people are still greedy for power. There is so little left in the world and instead of working together, the power hungry and avaricious are in control.

On an island of sick kids, who should be receiving the best treatment possible, they are treated like prisoners.

On the other side of the world, unstoppable monsters are created in order to gain more power.

In the city of Ashes, Anthem, people are stratified into haves and haves not, and strictly controlled. Fed up, they are ready to fight and when a girl comes back from the dead, a fire is lit.

This is not my usual genre and yet, it’s now on my top ten favorite books list. The only issue I had with this book is it ended, leaving me a raw exposed blubbering mess.

I look forward to the next book as this one leaves you pining for more.

dead

The Dead of Winter

This short story is about two men trying to survive an apocalyptic nightmare in a harsh frozen landscape. Hoping to find warmth and shelter. Hoping to ride out the night. Hoping the zombies don’t find them first.

Bonus Short Story: A Haunted House Tale – This short story is about five college students on Halloween night who set out to discover the secrets of the town’s most famous haunted house. Will these students live to see the morning or will this house claim five more victims?

Bonus Short Story: Demon Energy
– A short story about 1 man possessed and tormented by a 1000 demons who must fight for a soul he is starting to lose. Will he ever find salvation or is his body now an eternal host of hell?

You never know what you’re going to get when you meet this author’s zombies. In one book, they were singing Christmas carols. LOL At one point in the story I thought I knew what they’d be doing. But nope, it was something else. Still made me laugh, until I took the time to picture them. Then it was pretty creepy.

The story beings with two strangers meeting on a brutally cold winter’s day. They decide to stick together. The odds are better for survival that way. Two pairs of eyes and ears to warn of approaching zombies.

It’s not long before they run into trouble, narrowly escaping with their lives. It’s now become vital that they find a place to hole up. The zombies don’t get tired. They don’t feel the cold. And they do not stop coming.

From the mind of Anthony Renfro comes a new kind of zombie,. A smart zombie, kind of. They do think, but that doesn’t necessarily make them that smart. Several scenes have me laughing and cringing.

The characters are few. Just two men and a cat. Not including the hoard of zombies.

It’s these characters and their struggles to survive that drive this short story. Make it a deep experience.

The harsh environment of cold winter makes their struggles even harder. It’s bad enough they have to worry about food and warmth. There’s also those zombies who don’t feel the cold.

Not one to shy from gory details, you get plenty here. And the author’s macabre sense of humor shines in the end. You won’t see it coming. Just like one of the characters didn’t. Since it made me laugh, I guess I have a macabre sense of humor too.

twited

Twisted

This is the reality you will see in hell, through the eyes of a ghost of a woman, trying to reclaim her name by appealing to the devil; the eyes of a clay figure of a woman, about to be fired in the kiln, longing for her Creator; the eyes of a woman in the midst of a free fall, about to become a ghost; and the eyes of a feline creature with cracked fangs, trying in vain to resign herself, by hook and by crook, to being locked. These characters explore their identity, and challenge their fate.

Inspired by her art and by literature, these tales come from different times and places. Yet all of them share one thing in common: an unusual mind, one that is twisted. So prepare yourself: keep the lights on.

If you like to read a horror anthology, with dark fantasy horror about the battle between devil and God, you will enjoy outwitting the devil in this book, because it is a woman, or rather her ghost, that finds a way to outwit him.

trap

Trapped in Whittier 

Just because you don’t believe in something doesn’t mean it can’t kill you.

The two hundred residents of the strange, isolated town of Whittier, Alaska, are convinced that vengeful spirits and a horrific curse have doomed them to lives of eternal darkness.

When Trent finds himself trapped in Whittier with no way to leave until the next morning, he’s forced to escape the townspeople, reassess his own beliefs, and fight for his life against unnatural forces that his logical mind can’t explain.

Trapped in Whittier: Prologue

The growling. The snapping of the teeth. The shaking of the cages in the dimly lit room. He knew the bars were strong enough to hold them—that there was no way for them to escape, but it unnerved him to think of what they would do to him and anyone else who got in their way, if they did.

None of them had gotten loose before, but the Elder had made a special point of warning him this time—told him to stay vigilant—that there might be trouble coming their way. Maybe not this month, but soon.

The man turned his head from the cages, calmed his breathing, and tried to will his heart to beat slower. He reached into his pocket, found the little oval pill, and dry swallowed it.

Maybe it would also help if he changed his way of looking at the situation. He wasn’t their warden. He was caring for them and making sure they survived another full moon.

That made him feel a little better. But he still wished this could be done another way. These were his friends. His neighbors. His family.

But until the morning came, they were also dangerous and had to be treated that way.

Tonight, they were no longer humans.

Tonight, they were animals.

The Door that Leads Nowhere 

Horror Collection

Sheriff Ken Waring knows first hand all about the Farraday house, as do most of the townspeople. They want the place pulled down, and although this was looked into, legal precedent says this is not possible.

The Farradays were found within a room of that house slaughtered. Ken Waring still remembers the bodies, the odors and the blood stains. Since that day, the house has become dilapidated, though offers shelter for those seeking it. The catch – they may never live to tell the tale.

When Katy and David find the house on their voyage, it seems a temptingly good place to lay their heads for a couple of nights. What happens next is only known by those who were there and who experienced it first hand. The Farraday house is a renowned haunted venue which has secrets all of its own. Among those secrets is a facing up to fears that both Sheriff Ken Waring and Katy’s mother have had to come to terms with. Can anyone escape?

Horror 2: Worst Fears Confronted

The Farraday house is a house that locals believe to be possessed by evil spirits, following the mass slaughter that took place there in the past. Now, empty and offering shelter to strangers in passing, the house stands by the side of the road between Leicester and Rangston. A passing Amish man asks Sheriff Ken Waring if there is somewhere that he can stay for a couple of nights. Not wishing to stay in hotels or places of luxury, the Farraday residence seems to offer all that this traveling man needs. However, does it?

Will the house become a danger to him? Local resident students, who have grown up with the notion that the Farraday house is evil, set out to prove that the story is nonsense. Will they achieve this? Will the exorcism performed by the local Catholic priest prove to have been effective against the background of numerous disappearances? This continuation from the first in the series catches readers up with the latest happenings in this haunted abode.

Horror 3: Without a Single Trace

When property developers visit the town of Leicester, little are they prepared for the resistance of the residents. There have been rumors about how much this would affect the lives of people who had lived in Leicester all of their lives.

Ella and Alice have the key property and if they agree to sell up, Leicester becomes a town with a history, though not one with a future. Enlisting the help of the sheriff, Ella and Alice move into the Farraday place to evade the real estate agent acting on behalf of the developers, who is pretty determined to make a deal.

Will she survive her visit to the Farraday house? What happens when Alice and Ella are confronted by one of the surviving Farraday family members? What lies behind the door for those who dare to enter it? Only readers of the whole story will be able to find out.

Horror 4: Shelter

Lee Harris and his girlfriend, Pam came across the Farraday place when looking for somewhere to live. Out on their luck, with a baby on the way, the thought of a roof over their heads was tempting even though the reputation of the house was well documented.

The evil that lurked within the Farraday place was renowned, but they figured that if they managed to avoid the area which was known for working its evil on people, perhaps they stood a chance. When Bradley Willis enters their world demanding repayment of money owed by Lee, how will they deal with it?

The Farraday legend continues with a story of hope, a story of despair and a story of fear. The shelter that the house seemed to have been offering them came with a price-tag. Were they prepared to meet that price?…..

Dark Arts

The only hope he has of financing his future rests in a book he hunted down using contacts and skills he learned from his father, who was an expert at acquiring rare occult objects. Max is not a believer in mysticism, but he knows what he has was hard to get, and should be worth thousands. When he’s told it’s too hot to sell, his dreams are crushed, and his wallet is left empty. He’ll have to tell his band mates that his plan has fallen through, and they have come to the end of the road.

The members of Road Craft are set to return home during a Pagan summer festival called The Gathering, where hundreds of people gather to celebrate music, nature, and each other. The Gathering also puts him nose to nose with Miranda, a woman Maxwell knew when they were children, a veteran of the New York Rock scene and his equal.

He doesn’t know it yet, but this is the event that will make him a believer in the occult, and he will have some choices to make. All the while, there are people who know he has the book, and they are determined to twist the knowledge it contains to a terrible purpose, to break the circle of life, making resurrections possible, to open the door between the living and the dead just enough to embrace forbidden power. Their selfish intent would disrupt the natural order enough to change the world, and not for the better.

Maxwell’s music career is about to be the least of his worries.

EXTRACT FROM VAMPIRE – IN THE BEGINNING

‘Tom’s mother Martha was sprawled across the large kitchen table, her clothes ripped, and in places, torn completely away; her breasts fell from her laced bodice, flaccid and drooping to the sides of her lifeless body. Her legs were at a strange angle, and her skirts bunched up into a ball at her waist. I could see, even from where I was standing, that she was dead! Martha’s eyes were open, staring into nothingness and devoid of life, but it was her throat that caught my attention, it gaped open, and it looked like, what I imagined, the huge black cavern of hell to look like.’

The DeathBorn: The Future Is In The Past

This novel is set in Dallas, Texas, in the 1970s, when I was a police reporter for the Dallas Times Herald. As such, it gives an insight into how things were back then, when the killing of a black person was referred to as a “misdemeanor murder,” and the rights of gays were abused daily. Doors were broken down with alarming regularity and the carrying of a “throwdown gun” in police uniform pants pockets was rumored to be widely done.

Really, have things changed all that much in 35 years?

BOOK SYNOPSIS:

Can good triumph over an evil set in place by God himself?

It’s 1979, and a supernatural being from before human history roams the streets of a major U.S. city, murdering at will. Police, FBI and two young newspaper reporters try desperately to track him down as the death toll mounts.

Suddenly, he delivers a dreadful ultimatum: He will stop his atrocities for every day a person in the city commits suicide live on national TV.

Will this harbinger of death be caught before the county morgue overflows? Is mortal man a match for this survivor of ancient, biblical warfare?

God only knows.

The Bank of the River

By Michael Richan

“One of the most exciting new series!”

Steven is anticipating a quiet sabbatical at a new home. Recently divorced and with a son in college, he should have plenty of time to himself. Instead, he’s kept up at night by strange knockings – a series of four raps, a pause, and then another four. They arrive every night at the same time.

Steven is determined to find a rational explanation. When the knockings progress to strange apparitions, Steven believes he must have a brain tumor.

His father, Roy, recognizes the problems in Steven’s home because he’s seen them before. Roy has “the gift,” and can enter a place called The River, where he can see things others cannot. In The River, Roy discovers there are far more sinister forces at work in Steven’s home than just ghosts.

Steven shares Roy’s ability, but is skeptical of it. When the apparitions intensify and attack, Steven is forced to learn how to fight back if he wants to save himself and his father.

The Bank of the River is a fast-paced and suspenseful paranormal novel that confronts evil, ghosts, and the dead — and explores the supernatural gifts a father and son use to fight them.

The Bank of the River is the first book in The River series.

Praise for The River Series from Amazon readers:

“Truly scary.”

“Finally found a book that got under my nerves!”

“Couldn’t put it down…wanted the story to go on and on.”

“Very few authors can pull me in immediately and make me feel as though I were reading about old friends. Stephen King always has, and I can now add Michael Richan to the list.”

“Awesome ghost story with wonderful characters and a great plot!”

“Some of the most delightful reading I have done in a long time.”

“This was a great horror book. I absolutely loved it, and I know you will too! Keep the lights on when reading!”

The Covenant of Wickersham Hollow

By Thomas A. Bradley

Wickersham Hollow holds the dark secret of a deal made in hell, a deal made on Halloween night in 1697. The secret is kept within a house – a house with a will of its own, a house long empty of living souls – a house with a heart of pure evil. Sequestered within that house, within its walls and hallways, is the memory of a covenant, a pact born of a man’s lust for the body and soul a young woman. A pact forged in witchcraft by Torrance Wickersham, the founder of Wickersham Hollow.

Now, three hundred years later, led by Tommy Vorland, seven teenagers (Henry Travis, Amy Pritchard, Lucy Darrow, Matt Holloway, Janet Egan and Tina Farley), in search of a Halloween night thrill get more than they bargained for when they make their way into the old Wickersham house and awaken a malevolence that has lain dormant for centuries. Their nightmare begins when they discover that the house has a malicious mind of its own and Lucy is gruesomely murdered by one of its tricks. Things go from bad to hellish when Tommy is beset by a ghostly apparition that drives him insane, leaving Henry and Amy to take charge and find a way to get everyone out. But escape becomes no more than an elusive shadow when Wickersham’s spirit once again roams free and turns his lustful desires toward Amy. Now, trapped in a dungeon at the mercy of Wickersham and the demon incubus he summoned, Henry and Amy must prepare themselves for the unthinkable. But this battle is not yet over, as an unexpected ally rises to turn the tide. The spirit of Mother Cassandra, a voodoo priestess who lost her daughter and her life to Wickersham all those years ago, bestows upon the group a gift and a curse – the ability to read each other’s thoughts and summon a power none knew they held within. But all gifts come with a price. And when a dark deal is proffered, Henry accepts and is given a way to lead the group to safety. Their nightmare was over.

Or was it?

Seventy years later, Henry Travis, now eighty-six, discovers that his granddaughter, Annabel, and her husband, Brian, have purchased and renovated the old Wickersham place. He now knows the time has come to unveil its secrets – and his. He also knows that the time has come to honor the deal he made all those years ago. Somehow he must convince Annabel and Brian to abandon that house before it’s too late. When his attempts to dissuade them fail and they take possession of the house, the nightmare begins again, and their only hope for survival depends on the reunion of old friends, and the assistance of a descendant of Torrance Wickersham, the only man who know the secret within the secret, and may just hold the key to ending the nightmare once and for all. The questions are: can they summon the courage to go back into that house; are they strong enough to defeat a festering evil that has three hundred years to grow stronger, and are they prepared to face what just might be their last stand?

The Hunting Tree

By Ike Hamill

*Join the mailing list at http://www.ikehamill.com to receive Ike’s next book for free.*
For thousands of years a supernatural killer has slept in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. An amateur ghost hunter has just woken him up. Now that he stalks the night once more, he’s traveling east. Although the monster’s actions are pure evil, he may be the only thing that can save humanity from extinction.

This story is continued in “Blood Ghost — The Hunting Tree Book II.” Find it today on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Blood-Ghost-Hunting-Tree-ebook/dp/B00FHHF3TE/

Your pulse will do the fandango as you read The Hunting Tree Trilogy by Ike Hamill. A breathtaking story, it makes you want to turn the pages as quickly as possible so you can see what happens next to each of the three main characters: the lone survivor of a mass tribal suicide some five thousand years ago; a full-time geneticist and part-time paranormal investigator; and, a sometimes clumsy thirteen year old boy who is besieged by nightmares. As the story twists and turns in totally unexpected ways, you will need to stop occasionally to catch your breath (and maybe check under the bed) before continuing. Masterfully written, this brilliant trilogy braids the three threads into one seamless tale that will haunt you even in the daylight hours. This is yet another remarkable achievement from Ike Hamill, and you will want to delve into his other novels. I highly recommend that you do so.

Dead Hunger VIII: Peace, Love & Zombies

By Eric A. Shelman

Nelson Moore, the lovable stoner, takes over the telling of this, the eighth installment in the series. What he shares is terrifying and surprising.

After encountering the living dead in Central Park, Nelson must escape New York City and get to his grandfather, Jim Scofield, in Concord, New Hampshire. With his mellow, sweet demeanor, nobody could have predicted what this kind-hearted man went through on his journey. Concord may only be hours away, but plans have a way of crumbling during a zombie apocalypse.

As Nelson works his way through the dangerous streets of New York, he encounters other survivors; some friends, some strangers. Compassionate and unable to ignore people in need, Nelson sacrifices his plans to help others. The resulting madness will build the character you first came to know and care about in volume four of these chronicles.

Gem Cardoza asks Nelson to tell his story, unaware of the horrors he went through on his journey across the country. Nelson reluctantly agrees and leaves nothing out, from the fates of his friends to each terrifying encounter with the walking dead.

If you thought Nelson was interesting before, this will change the way you see our long-haired, scooter-riding friend. Sit back and dig in. Maybe pack a bowl, too.

It may help set the mood.

EXTRACT FROM VAMPIRE – IN THE BEGINNING

‘Tom’s mother Martha was sprawled across the large kitchen table, her clothes ripped, and in places, torn completely away; her breasts fell from her laced bodice, flaccid and drooping to the sides of her lifeless body. Her legs were at a strange angle, and her skirts bunched up into a ball at her waist. I could see, even from where I was standing, that she was dead! Martha’s eyes were open, staring into nothingness and devoid of life, but it was her throat that caught my attention, it gaped open, and it looked like, what I imagined, the huge black cavern of hell to look like.’

Nyx is the ruler of the banished Angels. When her flock returns home, she’s stuck on Earth with none other than the Son of God.

Nyx launches a thousand-year campaign of violence, sex, and betrayal to force God’s people to worship her instead. From the back streets of Jerusalem to the Pope’s bedchamber, Nyx and her companions work to destroy the worshippers of God.

What Nyx doesn’t realize is that her arrangement with God’s son isn’t as simple as it seems. The Son of God has plans that nobody will see coming…

Plague of Angels is the first book in The Descended saga, a series of dark fantasy novels that provide a twist on an old story. If you like fantasy fused with religion, thought-provoking plots, and graphic violence, then you’ll love John Patrick Kennedy’s tale of the underworld.

Alignment: The Silent City

By H.G. Suren

Five friends wake up to discover they are left alone on earth–the rest of humanity is gone.

Empty streets are littered with stalled-out cars, buses, and motorcycles. A sunless and moonless sky is covered with an enormous barrier that prevents any view of the heavens.
And silence, pervasive and absolute, reigns. Nothing stirs. The air is oppressive and there is no wind, not even the softest breeze.

As far as the five friends can tell, there isn’t another living thing on earth other than them, neither animal nor plant. What happened to life on earth while they slept? Or is it that something happened to them? Are they still on earth, or have they somehow been transported elsewhere? If so, where? Heaven? Hell? Another planet? Or are they pawns in a sophisticated computer game? Or is it all just their imagination?

Aram believes they aren’t dead. He believes if there is a way into the Silent World, then there must be a way out. He convinces his friends to stay focused and put up a worthy fight to find their way back to the reality they once knew. He can’t give up, because somewhere out there, beyond the frightening new world, his new-born son is waiting for his Daddy’s return.

X: A Collection of Horror

By Christian Saunders

This is what happens when you ‘wake up’ inside a dream, when the urban myth you heard turns out to be so much more, and when that hottie you pick up in a bar springs a terrible surprise. But what do you do when your wife gives birth to something not entirely human? When your past discretions come back to haunt you? Or when a serial killer moves in next door?

The first collection of horror and dark fiction from the critically acclaimed writer C.M. Saunders, including three previously unpublished stories, plus an introduction and extensive notes. Also features exclusive artwork by Greg Chapman.

WARNING: Adult Material.

Table of Contents: Introduction: That’s Entertainment, A Thin Disguise, A Hell of my Own Creation, Monkey Man, The Awful Truth, Mr. C, Fame / Infamy: A Deconstruction, Another False Dawn, The Night Everything Changed, The Devil & Jim Rosenthal, Club Culture, Afterword

I loved X for the same reason I loved Psycho and the Blair Witch Project: sometimes less is more (although there are tidbits of ‘more’ here and there. If you like psychological horror, and stories that get into the mind and motivations of a killer, than you’ll enjoy this. Explores themes like OCD, fame, purpose, and mental illness in general. Makes me wonder if these aren’t merely stories, but psychotherapy too. A clever introduction, too

Fiddleback

By Jeff Vrolyks

Mae Clark is a ten-year-old girl with abusive parents and an imaginary friend named Breuer. Breuer has ideas to help Mae, ideas that aren’t very nice. Breuer isn’t as imaginary as Mae thinks.

Tag Baylor is a bartender who writes fiction as a hobby, posting his works on an amateur website. The heroine in his stories is a young woman named Mae Clark. A man claiming to be Mae Clark’s husband emails Tag, threatening tremendous bodily harm if he continues writing about Mae. Tag is stunned: Mae Clark is a figment of his imagination. Or is she?

This novel is the unabridged version of the story previously published, and offered strictly for Kindle users. The download contains a lengthy sample of the novel Behind the Horned Mask.
Warning: Story depicts explicit acts of violence. Discretion advised.

I liked this story. It was different from anything I have ever read. It was interesting throughout. It can be explicit … that would be my only warning. Also, it leaves you wanting a sequel! Don’t know if there is one in the works or not. Maybe the author wants you to connect the dots and figure it out ? It is a very good read, and I highly recommend it.

Zombie Fallout

By Mark Tufo

It was a flu season like no other. With the H1N1 virus running rampant throughout the country, people lined up in droves to try and attain one of the coveted vaccines. What was not known was the effect this largely untested, rushed to market, inoculation was to have on the unsuspecting throngs. Within days, feverish folk throughout the country convulsed, collapsed, and died, only to be reborn. With a taste for brains, blood, and bodies, these modern-day zombies scoured the lands for their next meal. Overnight the country became a killing ground for the hordes of zombies that ravaged the land.

This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

Can he keep his family safe? Can he discover the secret behind Tommy’s powers? Can he save anyone from the zombie queen? Encircled in a seemingly safe haven called Little Turtle, Mike and his family, together with the remnants of a tattered community, must fight against a relentless, ruthless, unstoppable force. This last bastion of civilization has made its final stand. God help them all.

Mechaniclism: Apocalyptic Horror

By Lynn Lamb

The Past

In 1632, Lord August Godwine, an Austrian nobleman, commissions Swiss clockmaker Frederick Jori to create a miniature city of automatons to amuse himself and impress the aristocracy. When Jori refuses to commit offenses against God, he undergoes brutal, unimaginable torture until the once-pious craftsman surrenders to his fate. But what he hides in the innocuous-appearing automatons ignites a horrific apocalypse—one that will not be realized for 400 years.

The Present

In 21st century San Francisco, Ireland Barton is a brilliant, successful young scientist, but there is one drawback to her perfect life—she suffers from a rare immune disorder that keeps her confined in a plastic bubble. When a new virus is released on the world, she begins a heart-pounding race to find a cure to save what is left of humanity and battle malevolent forces housed in 17th century figurines.

An Uncertain Future

As two worlds—two time periods—collide, will Ireland unravel the mystery of the dolls before the clock winds down on humanity?

I have become a big fan of Lamb’s writing since the first book in the Survivor Diaries series. Her short story collection, Oxymoron of Still Life, ranks as some of the finest writing I have seen from an Indie author to date. I will say that in Mechaniclism, Lamb doesn’t disappoint.

Well done, and written with Lamb’s excellent, deft hand.

Lynn Lamb’s Mechaniclism can certainly be classified as horror – and I am not a big fan of horror stories. In Lamb’s capable hands, however, it is also a story about love, and fear, and revenge, and resignation – with a bit of the apocalypse thrown in, all stirred into an intriguing story that grabs your attention and doesn’t let you go until the end. Even then, you are invested in the characters and are left wishing there was more.

The Uncanny Valley…

“…is a macabre serenade to a small town that may or may not exist, peopled with alive and dead denizens who wander about the hills and houses with creepy fluidity. Told by individual inhabitants, the stories recount tales of disappearing dead deer, enchanted gardens, invisible killer dogs, and rattlesnakes that fall from the sky; each contribution adds to a composite portrait that skitters between eerie, ghoulish, and poignant.

Cast In Blood

By Christine Sutton and Two Others

An unknown force threatens Heaven and Hell, along with every soul on Earth. Three unlikely heroes join together to restore universal balance. Will their shared adversary initiate an Apocalypse before they’re able to uncover the truth, or will they rise to a calling that has, from the beginning of time, been Cast in Blood?

Lenny is a troubled girl but she has found salvation and a haven at Children of Light church, when Apollyon the demon comes into her life things start to become a little more complex for this untapped, talented shape shifter.

Not only is Apollyon a First Knight of Hell, an expert in torture and right hand helper to Lucifer (Lucy to her friends!), she is on a mission to a catch a djinn (very bad but lesser demon of hell) and find out who is stealing all the souls from both Heaven and Hell.
Drew is the final heroine that make up the (don’t say it – Charlie’s Angels!) trio, as a succubus you would think her life as a “working girl” would be perfect, but she is on the wagon and going cold turkey, much to the disgust of her demon pimp the purple fedora wearing J.D.

Hershel aka Father is a charismatic leader, and true believer, and he is willing to sacrifice to bring about the cleansing of the sin upon the earth. With his devout followers not being quite what they appear is Hell about to unleash on the world?? So what is going on the basement?

This book has some seriously powerful female characters, great ideas and interesting thoughts regarding humanity and the whole theory of Heaven vs Hell. It turns a few myths on their heads in some very amusing ways; I would love more of Polly and Lucy’s beginnings and journey.

Along with the splattering, then gushing of gore were some giggle inducing moments and some snort out loud lines too.
Whilst I found the beginning a little slow, the laying out of all the characters is steady and easily followed then the story starts to gather pace, I could not find a good place to stop as each chapter just leaves you on a knife edge of questions or battle.

Some of the character thoughts, sayings and ideals are a bit sugary and more YA in texture than the others but the gore element and subject matter soon take care of that. There was also some over repeating of the “Fall” explanation, not really done in a differing enough PoV in my opinion to be different enough, but by the middle of the book I was hooked and thought the overall story with the gore and great characters made up for any doubts in the start.

These authors rock individually with their own novels and characters but together they have blown me away! This is the start of what promises to be a brilliant series, so don’t let me down ladies, don’t let your characters become too perfect or too safe! !

Sanctuary is a town consisting of others, and despite being a human she feels at home there as well as in Erick’s arms; if Bailey has learned anything in her short life it is that something so good has to go wrong at some point.

It is obvious Bailey is a pillar of strength. This young woman has endured more than any person should ever have to, but she keeps fighting to survive. It is her strength that draws Erick; he was a Viking in his human life, and he is attracted to her warrior spirit. Erick is so compassionate and gentle, but he is also passionate and commanding. I loved the way he considered Bailey’s fears, but also pushed her to work through them. Let me tell you, Erick isn’t the only sex god in Sanctuary just wait until you meet the lycans and dragons!

Krystal Shannan has a new fan! My Viking Vampire had me completely mesmerized! The setting of the story takes place in a future United States that is very different from today. I thought the storyline was very unique, and her descriptions of the time and place were very illustrative. Did I mention that the chemistry between the two main characters is downright fiery and titillating?

My Viking Vampire is the first book in the Sanctuary, Texas series. I am really excited to see where Bailey’s journey leads her next, and I look forward to the opportunity to learn more about the other rich and vibrant characters in Sanctuary!

The Grave Winner

By Lindsey Loucks

Book 1 of a Spine-Chilling YA Horror Series

Leigh Baxton is terrified her mom will come back from the dead — just like the prom queen did.

While the town goes beehive over the news, Leigh bikes to the local cemetery and buries some of her mom’s things in her grave to keep her there. When the hot and mysterious caretaker warns her not to give gifts to the dead, Leigh cranks up her punk music and keeps digging.

She should have listened.

Two dead sorceresses evicted the prom queen from her grave to bury someone who offered certain gifts. Bury them alive, that is, then resurrect them to create a trio of undead powerful enough to free the darkest sorceress ever from her prison inside the earth.

With help from the caretaker and the dead prom queen, Leigh must find out what’s so special about the gifts she gave, and why the sorceresses are stalking her and her little sister. If she doesn’t, she’ll either lose another loved one or have to give the ultimate gift to the dead – herself.

The Darkslayer: Wrath of the Royals

By Craig Halloran

Fans of R.A. Salvatore’s-Drizzt Do’ Urden, Frizt Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, David Gemmell’s Druss the Legend, Raymond E. Feist’s Pug the Wizard, and Robert E. Howard’s Conan, like The Darkslayer series … perhaps you will as well.

Welcome to the Unwelcome World of Bish …

Bish is the land of constant strife and turmoil. The rise and fall of the blazing suns make the days long and the people disagreeable. Its barren Outlands are as comforting as a bed of thorns as there is little sanctuary to be found in the sweltering forests or the dank caves below the ground. Its caviling cities are overrun with death, greed and corruption, but few complain. It is a place where tempers flare and alliances last as long as a tankard of ale. It is a place where the women are as beautiful as they are scarred and deranged. A place where good doesn’t thrive, it endures. It is the land of fight or die.

Enter Venir the incorrigible, a fierce warrior, who has been secretly keeping the underling forces at bay for years. He is the Darkslayer, a man possessed by a mantle of power he cannot let go.

Enter Melegal the resilient, a crafty rogue, and Venir’s reluctant shadow.

Enter the underlings, a purely evil race of sadistic killers bent on the destruction of mankind.

Enter the humans, a greedy, self-absorbed race of shameless survivors.

Enter the orcs, halflings, dwarves, ogres and other races, some good, some bad, all caught in the maelstrom of treachery and seduction.

How will they survive to fight and skim another day? Only Bish knows.

More…

As the underlings rally all of the evil forces they can muster to destroy the mystical and legendary Darkslayer, something unexpected has upset the delicate balance between good and evil on the world called Bish, making the Darkslayer a pawn in other insidious disputes.

When recklessness provokes a Royal household, Venir is forced to flee the city, along with his comrade, the skinny thief Melegal. The Royals and underlings soon unleash some unusual powers against him and start to close in. Facing the final showdown, nothing unfolds as it should.

Chain Letter

By Willow Rose

They received a letter. They dismissed it as a prank, but as they soon will learn YOU NEVER … EVER IGNORE A CHAIN LETTER.
Chain Letter is a spine chilling horror-novella from International Best selling author Willow Rose.

For ‘Chain Letter’ being a quick read, it was full of unimaginable horror. The Madsen family each carried a secret of sorts, except for Frederic. He just had the nightmare from hell- clowns. A good, quick, descriptive horror story. It still amazes me how Willow Rose comes up with her stories. She’s definitely extremely talented.

What to say about Chain Letter…definitely different than the other books I have read by Willow Rose. While I love a good scary story, this one was more morbid than I expected from her. Not to say that it’s a bad story because it’s not, it’s just different.

Cast In Blood

By Christine Sutton, Lisa Lane and one other

An unknown force threatens Heaven and Hell, along with every soul on Earth. Three unlikely heroes join together to restore universal balance. Will their shared adversary initiate an Apocalypse before they’re able to uncover the truth, or will they rise to a calling that has, from the beginning of time, been Cast in Blood?

Lenny is a troubled girl but she has found salvation and a haven at Children of Light church, when Apollyon the demon comes into her life things start to become a little more complex for this untapped, talented shape shifter.

Not only is Apollyon a First Knight of Hell, an expert in torture and right hand helper to Lucifer (Lucy to her friends!), she is on a mission to a catch a djinn (very bad but lesser demon of hell) and find out who is stealing all the souls from both Heaven and Hell.
Drew is the final heroine that make up the (don’t say it – Charlie’s Angels!) trio, as a succubus you would think her life as a “working girl” would be perfect, but she is on the wagon and going cold turkey, much to the disgust of her demon pimp the purple fedora wearing J.D.

Hershel aka Father is a charismatic leader, and true believer, and he is willing to sacrifice to bring about the cleansing of the sin upon the earth. With his devout followers not being quite what they appear is Hell about to unleash on the world?? So what is going on the basement?

This book has some seriously powerful female characters, great ideas and interesting thoughts regarding humanity and the whole theory of Heaven vs Hell. It turns a few myths on their heads in some very amusing ways; I would love more of Polly and Lucy’s beginnings and journey.

Along with the splattering, then gushing of gore were some giggle inducing moments and some snort out loud lines too.
Whilst I found the beginning a little slow, the laying out of all the characters is steady and easily followed then the story starts to gather pace, I could not find a good place to stop as each chapter just leaves you on a knife edge of questions or battle.

Some of the character thoughts, sayings and ideals are a bit sugary and more YA in texture than the others but the gore element and subject matter soon take care of that. There was also some over repeating of the “Fall” explanation, not really done in a differing enough PoV in my opinion to be different enough, but by the middle of the book I was hooked and thought the overall story with the gore and great characters made up for any doubts in the start.
These authors rock individually with their own novels and characters but together they have blown me away! This is the start of what promises to be a brilliant series, so don’t let me down ladies, don’t let your characters become too perfect or too safe! !

Outage Boxed Set: Books 1-3

By T.W. Piperbrook

This specially-priced bundle contains the first three books in the OUTAGE series:
*Outage
*Outage 2: The Awakening
*Outage 3: Vengeance

ABOUT OUTAGE:When an early snow ravages the small town of Plainfield, the residents are stripped of heat, power, and mobility. They’ll soon wish they had protection. Somewhere outside, something else is lurking. Waiting for the chance to strike…

I have loved werewolves ever since seeing Lon Chaney’s role in the Wolfman. But the movie and book world has never really caught up to the potential of this mythical character. I have been flustered over the lack of good monster books until I was introduced to T.W. Piperbrooks first Outage novel by a good friend. He initially recommended it to me knowing of my hatred of all things winter, but once I got into the short novel I discovered the true horror of the tale: Werewolves! I waited and grabbed up these books as each came out, and my only wish is that I had been able to grab them all up in a collection. It is much better to be able and “devour” a great story in one stretch setting as opposed to waiting for each segment to come out, and now new readers will have this luxury. Forget zombies; push aside vampires; go for the gusto with the wolves! Only Jeff Strand with his pair of wolf novels “Wolf Hunt 1 &2” have been able to satisfy my urge for unadulterated monster mayhem as much as Piperbrook has with the Outage series. Read and enjoy; and then go our and get a copy of the original Lon Chaney Wolfman to watch. No better combo can be had!

four bargain books

Four

By Zack Scott

A tragic past. A destined reunion. A decaying hope.

In Southern California, four friends must face a haunting nightmare from high school in order to save the future of humanity. But will their personal conflicts get in the way? Battling for survival, these fated four will choose whether to follow a destined path or continue their dead lives, while the zombie apocalypse feeds them one cliche after another.

I have not read many zombie novels, but I was referred this book by a friend, and am quite glad I read it. There was a lot more to this book than an action-filled romp through a zombie apocalypse. (Although that was certainly there, and if that is all you are looking for then I think you will definitely enjoy it.) But the novel was deeper than I expected, with elements grander than surviving zombie attacks, some heartfelt moments, and some mysteries to be unraveled.

Overall, I thought the action was great throughout the book, there was a wealth of likeable characters, and just the right amount of humor. It’s simply an entertaining read. I am looking forward to finding out what happens next. The only thing that bothered me was that there were a few moments that didn’t draw me in as well as I would have liked, but I think I might just be picky; it’s only bothersome because every other part was great and I want everything to be perfect.

It’s a fast read and I definitely recommend it, and am curious to see this author’s next work. (I think this is his first book.)

Rage Against the Night

By Stephen King and Eight Others

Under the onslaught of supernatural evil, the acts of good people can seem insignificant, but a courageous few stand apart. These brave men and women stand up to the darkness, stare it right in the eye, and give it the finger. These are the stories of those who rage against the night, stories of triumph, sacrifice, and bravery in the face of overwhelming evil.

Rage Against the Night features the megastars of dark fantasy and horror—including Stephen King, Ramsey Campbell, Peter Straub, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, F. Paul Wilson, Jonathan Maberry, Scott Nicholson, Nancy Holder, Sarah Langan, and many, many more.

“Rage Against the Night”‘ is a horror anthology put together by Shane Jiraiya Cummings to raise money to help out Rocky Wood, one of the genre’s well known authors and the President of the HWA, who has Lou Gehrig’s disease.

It is a must read for anyone who enjoys a good scare every now and then. It is filled with some of the best short stories that I have read in a long time. I found it hard to put down and in the end, disappointed that it was over. These short stories were written by some of the genre’s biggest heavy hitters who hold back no punches, each story grabbing hold and sucking you in deep.

The Bloodline: Birth of the Vampir

By Shaun McGinnis and Red Garcia

The Bloodline: Birth of the Vampir is a dark tale of innocence lost and monstrosity born. Set in 13th century Europe, the book chronicles the fall of a Transylvanian Lord and his people at the hands of a ruthless Archdeacon in search of the Holy Grail. Cursed and exiled from their land, the former citizens of Erdely soon find themselves in the grips of a transformation, becoming something the world has never seen before—the first vampires.

Vampires have lost a lot of what made them scary and unique in recent years with the romance genre taking the vampire and spinning an uninteresting rehash of tired plot lines. Not this book. This is the first in a long time that I have seen a genuine interest in producing an original body of work with the vampire monster and it is a very welcomed one, especially for a debut work. Definitely would recommend to anyone interested in horror, vampires, or just a very rare original spirit and care that comes with this novel.

An interesting story with some new takes on the mythology of vampires. The writing was clean and engaging. I recommend reading this.

I try to read new authors but a lot of the books I get just suck , but this book was awesome! Bloody, violent, a telling off the vampire legend. Awesome!

This is a well written book. It not that Buffy, True Blood or Twilight crap. If that’s what your looking for you will not find it. If your looking for history, depth and something that is refreshing like water from a deep well that will leave you wanting more then you have found the right book. It was hard to put down and I’m looking forward to the sequel.

By Megg Jensen

The first novel in a USA Today bestselling series from Megg Jensen!

Control the dragons. Rule the realm.

The mystery enshrouding Hutton’s Bridge is as impenetrable as the fog that descended at its borders eighty years ago. Each year, three villagers enter the mist searching for answers. No one ever returns.

Then a dragon falls from the sky to the town square, dead—the first glimpse of an outside world that has become nothing more than a fairy tale to Hutton’s Bridge. Except to Tressa.

Tressa grew up with Granna’s stories of the days before the fog fell. When Granna dies, leaving Tressa without any family, Tressa ventures into the fog herself, vowing to unravel the foul magic holding Hutton’s Bridge captive.

What she discovers beyond the fog endangers the lives of everyone she loves.

I really enjoyed this. The concept of the story is amazing but there is definitely one complaint. Near the beginning there it seems like a chapter or even a page or two was omitted. It wasn’t it just read that way. Once I got further into the next chapter it all made sense but at first I had to go back to the previous chapter to make sure I didn’t miss anything.

The story keeps you hooked till the end great writing style. You fall in love with the characters. and tou never know what to expect.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story of heroes, daring maidens, and the many mysteries of the Dragonlands. I look forward to reading the next books in the series!

Angelbound

By Christina Bauer

Eighteen year old Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She’s not your every day quasi-demon, half-demon and half-human, girl. For the past five years, Myla has lived for the days she gets to fight in Purgatory’s arena. When souls want a trial by combat for their right to enter heaven or hell, they go up against her, and she hasn’t lost a battle yet.

But as she starts her senior year at Purgatory High, the arena fights aren’t enough to keep her spirits up anymore. When the demons start to act weird, even for demons, and the King of the Demons, Armageddon, shows up at Myla’s school, she knows that things are changing and it’s not looking good for the quasi-demons. Myla starts to question everything, and doesn’t like the answers she finds. What happened seventeen years ago that turned the quasi-demons into slave labor? Why was her mom always so sad? And why won’t anyone tell her who her father is? Things heat up when Myla meets Lincoln, the High Prince of the Thrax, a super sexy half-human and half-angel demon hunter. But what’s a quasi-demon girl to do when she falls for a demon hunter? It’s a good thing that Myla’s not afraid of breaking a few rules. With a love worth fighting for, Myla’s going to shake up Purgatory.

Kahayatle (Apocalypsis Book 1)

By Elle Casey

AUTHOR, ELLE CASEY, brings readers Book 1 of 4 in the YA Dystopian APOCALYPSIS Series, suitable for older teens and adults.

KAHAYATLE. My name’s Bryn Mathis. I’m seventeen years old, and I live in a neighborhood outside of Orlando, Florida. I live alone because my dad died almost a year ago, along with all the other adults in the world. I’m almost out of food and the gangs of kids that roam around my town are getting more vicious by the day. It’s time for me to leave and find another place to live … a place where I can find food and shelter … a place where they won’t be able to find me. Alone, it might have been possible, but now I’ve got company. I’m worried that I don’t have what it takes to get from here to my final destination, and I have no idea what might be waiting for me when I get there.

Content Warning: Mild violence and some foul language. Meant for older Young Adult readers (age 15+). This book is in the Dark Science Fiction / Horror / Post-Apocalyptic genres, featuring teen characters only.

HERE’S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT KAHAYATLE (APOCALYPSIS BOOK 1):

“I read A TON of dystopians and post-apocalyptic novels. They all run together, but not this one. This is the kind of dystopian that I want to read.  I love the world Elle Casey has created. It’s a tamed-down, less-depressing, good-humoured The Road meets a more-aggressive, less sophisticated The Silence of the Lambs. Read this! It’s bloody brilliant.” ~ Lucas Deal, Goodreads Reviewer

What took me so flipping long to read this book?! Apocalypsis: Kahayatle was so very different than what I expected – but just that much better because of it. Elle Casey creates a world ridden with violence and horror and injects the perfect amount of belly-laughing sarcasm, wit, and romance. Her characterization is phenomenal and honest through a setting that is disturbingly realistic…” BetweentheBind.blogspot.com ~ Jenna, Book Blogger
“If you don’t enjoy reading books that tend to be addictive and take over your life until you have finished reading it, stay away from Apocalypsis. It was nearly impossible to put down. It is also funny – I spent most of the book chuckling or full out laughing.” ~ Tiffany Loves Books, Blogger and Goodreads reviewer

The Grave Winner

By Lindsey Loucks

Book 1 of a Spine-Chilling YA Horror Series

Leigh Baxton is terrified her mom will come back from the dead — just like the prom queen did.

While the town goes beehive over the news, Leigh bikes to the local cemetery and buries some of her mom’s things in her grave to keep her there. When the hot and mysterious caretaker warns her not to give gifts to the dead, Leigh cranks up her punk music and keeps digging.

She should have listened.

Two dead sorceresses evicted the prom queen from her grave to bury someone who offered certain gifts. Bury them alive, that is, then resurrect them to create a trio of undead powerful enough to free the darkest sorceress ever from her prison inside the earth.

With help from the caretaker and the dead prom queen, Leigh must find out what’s so special about the gifts she gave, and why the sorceresses are stalking her and her little sister. If she doesn’t, she’ll either lose another loved one or have to give the ultimate gift to the dead – herself.

The Final Winter

By Iain Rob Wright

Critically acclaimed début novel of bestselling author, Iain Rob Wright. #1 Bestseller in Horror Fiction and Apocalyptic Fiction.

Stay out of the snow…
What would you do if it started snowing in every country in the world? Would you panic? For a ragtag group of strangers gathered at a dilapidated English pub, the best solution is a pint of beer with a hearty shot of denial. The truth is too strange to admit; but, one by one, they will be forced to accept reality — that something sinister is lurking outside in the snow. Something no one could imagine.

Amongst those at the pub is Harry Jobson, the local drunk. Nobody would ever look to him during a time of crisis, but as things deteriorate he is forced to get a grip on his past and be the man he was always meant to be. It will be up to Harry to find answers to questions like: who just threw a body through the window with the word SINNER carved into its chest?

Not everyone is going to make it through the night — and those who do will wish they hadn’t.

The God Killers

By David Simpson

Imagine an alternate reality that appears, on the surface, just like our own. However, in this reality, the white light famously reported at the end of our lives is not an escape or deliverance — it is a trap. A creature calling itself God in a parallel dimension consumes the souls of humans, devouring their energy to sustain itself. This is the reality that Cipher, Han, Natalie and Father Hurley inhabit in The God Killers. Each has had near death experiences (NDE’s) and each was resuscitated before their souls were consumed, coming back to Earth horrified by the truth: there is no exit.

Now they must attempt the only course of action available to them: they must kill God. With the help of satanic messages decoded from the nonsensical ramblings of the possessed, the group must evade ghosts and demons on their mission to not only save their lives, but, more importantly, their afterlives as well.Now they must attempt the only course of action available to them: they must kill God.

Another great zombie book that takes a little different twist while people are running from the undead. I saw some reviews that we’re not very flattering and I almost didn’t try this book, but since it was free and I there were many great reviews I gave it a shot. So glad I did! The characters are interesting and the writing is smooth and flows nicely. Some books feel forced and choppy as I read them, but this one kept my interest! I just bought book 2 and as much as I wish it was part of the kindle free books, I am excited to read it and am sure I will keep buying the others.

Infected: The Fall

By Caleb Cleek

When a bus full of tourists, infected with a genetically engineered virus, stops in a quiet community for lunch, the area threatens to become the epicenter for a worldwide outbreak. Two Vista County deputies race to contain the revived dead, stop the spread, and combat the chaos and anarchy
that ensues.

“A fast paced, action packed tale of duty, family,…and zombies” Dr. E.P. Lewis

Amazon TOP 10 rated Post Apocalyptic Book

I felt like Infected: The Fall got off to a rocky start setting up the scene and cast of characters. I had expected a predictable progression of zombie carnage, but boy was I wrong.

I quickly became enthralled in the story and was captivated by each raw, visceral event that unfolded. I honestly didn’t expect what was coming and twice reconsidered if I was even prepared to follow Connor through the epigenesis of his journey. Caleb Cleek had my attention however and I’m glad I pushed through the jarring moments to witness the story come to life.

I thoroughly enjoyed this read and highly recommend it to any fan of survival, zombies, or adventure.

Least Likely To Survive

By Lisa Biesiada

Angie Thompson is 29 and never amounted to much. So of course when the zombie apocalypse started, all she cared about was making sure she had enough weed and a safe place to ride it out; after all, when no cares about you, there’s no one for you to care about.

At least that was the plan until she meets the ultra-famous Jack Jones and accidentally kills his security guard. Angie can’t say no to a man that smells that good when he decides they need to stop and rescue teens Ty and Chloe from a Taco Bell and drop them off in San Antonio. And that’s where things get really weird.

Angie’s plans are soon thrown for a loop when she uncovers a government conspiracy and has to figure out how to not only get out alive, but bring her new friends along for the ride.

I am a huge fan of zombie apocalypse and other dystopian fiction….probably started with “The Stand”. I downloaded this for free and finished it in about day. At first I almost gave up on it, not sure why exactly, maybe because Zoe was a little too naive. I decided to read a little more and was hooked. I read other fantasy fiction also, so was not put off by her special “Spider Sense”. The character development was slowly being worked into the story and I became attached to the characters. I am definitely considering buying the next book.

Suddenly, an aunt she’s never met dies, leaving Mara as her sole heir. But when Mara moves into her inherited home, she discovers Aunt Tillie never moved out. She’s still one pissed-off old lady, even post-mortem, and she blames Mara’s magical meddling for her death.

When Mara accidentally releases a demon and awakens the spirit of the most powerful witch in history, Tillie’s ready to kill her — literally. It’s the only way she can think of to save the girl from herself.

Zombie Fallout

By Mark Tulo

It was a flu season like no other. With the H1N1 virus running rampant throughout the country, people lined up in droves to try and attain one of the coveted vaccines. What was not known was the effect this largely untested, rushed to market, inoculation was to have on the unsuspecting throngs. Within days, feverish folk throughout the country convulsed, collapsed, and died, only to be reborn. With a taste for brains, blood, and bodies, these modern-day zombies scoured the lands for their next meal. Overnight the country became a killing ground for the hordes of zombies that ravaged the land.

This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

Can he keep his family safe? Can he discover the secret behind Tommy’s powers? Can he save anyone from the zombie queen? Encircled in a seemingly safe haven called Little Turtle, Mike and his family, together with the remnants of a tattered community, must fight against a relentless, ruthless, unstoppable force. This last bastion of civilization has made its final stand. God help them all.

The House of Worms

By Harvey Click

Dexter Radcliff’s elderly great-aunt owns an ancient Native American artifact called the Talking Horn that allows one to speak with the dead, and when Dexter’s carelessness causes the Horn to be stolen he is plunged into a nightmarish struggle with the Lost Society, a vast narco-terrorist network of occult assassins led by a dead sorcerer. But Dexter’s problems have just begun—soon he will have to contend with parasitic brain-eating worms, sinister Longevitals who can live a very long time thanks to a hermetic treatment, a “Twisted Zoo” containing among its horrific exhibits Dexter’s murderous atavistic twin, “spectreholes” that open spectral doorways to other worlds, and a hellish monstrosity older than mankind that is preparing to return to earth and return earth to primordial chaos.

Warning: this grisly novel is not for the timid. The first chapter entices the readers like a bloody fishing lure, and each following chapter drags them deeper and deeper into a swirling maelstrom of horror.

Since the inception of the Kindle, I have read many self published books. Most are sorely in need of an editor. Harvey Click’s HOUSE OF WORMS, however, does not. It is smoothly written, as professional work of fiction as I have ever read.
Kindle offerings at this price are usually only 10-20 thousand words at most. This novel is a whopper, 120,000 words. And unlike , say, some tome by King, there is no padding. This adventure moves quickly and is lean and lithe when it comes to verbiage.

I felt the influence of a great number of pulp and SF writers of the past as I read this. Especially H.P. Lovecraft. What better place to start a novel than in a spooky curio shop with exotic trinkets , then a crumbling mansion on the Hudson River? An eerie mausoleum under the full moon? A backyard in suburban Cincinnati?
Click moves locale with sometimes dizzying speed. But, as I said, there is little fluff involved. Every sentence in this tale has its purpose. At times I was reminded of one of the whirlwind adventures of Doc Savage as he and his crew romped across the Depression midwest battling evil. Doc only met this type of evil once, at the end of his (written) adventures.
Splatter horror fans, there is plenty here for you. While you won’t need the king-size Vomit Bag required for some others in the genre, there is enough here to make you winch. There is also loads of dark humor. For some reason I pictured Forrest Ackerman for the image of the Grimes and Bub from “Day of the Dead” as his son. The book has a lot of the feel of Philip Jose Farmer’s “Blown”, and perhaps, more contemporarily , Neil Gaiman’s “American Gods”

House of Worms covers some of my favorite themes:
~dilapidated old spooky house, creepy mausoleum (That whole thing reminded me of an early HPL story, The Tomb) .
~Location other than the expected glamour spots such as NY or LA.
~Native American spiritual cues
~Near immortal restless soul
~Secret society or cabal
~some quite brutal and innovative torture scenes
~gateways to other realms
~disorientation

A lot of the action was very pulpish (in a good way), and also to some extent in the “modern noir” of thrillers such as Pendelton’s Executioner books. It flowed easily in real time .
I also liked the ambiguity of the characters’ “goodness”. Kept me guessing the whole time.

If you like Edward Lee , H P Lovecraft, Wrath James White or Jack Ketcham, you should give this one a try.

Daughters of Darkness – The Anthology

By Chrissy Peebles and Three Others

Four authors will each take a different daughter born from the Prince of Darkness, Vlad Montour. (Also known as Vlad the Impaler, an evil villain from history)

Blair – Chrissy Peebles
Jezebel – Kristen Middleton
Victoria – W.J. May
Lotus – C.J. Pinard

Blair: Half witch and half vampire.

She lives with a coven of witches and hasn’t had any contact with her vampire heritage. Blair is living the perfect life until one day, everything crashes down around her. She is forced to leave everything she knows and loves, and must go on the run to save her life.
Jezebel: A red-haired vampire/succubus with dark appetites.

She’s also a Private Investigator, living in Sin City, and tracking down cheating spouses is her specialty. Life is good, until one night when Jez is visited by a stranger, named Dorian Hart, who hands her a letter with some shocking revelations.

Victoria: Only Death Could Stop Her Now

Victoria is a Hunter Vampire, one of the last of her kind. She’s the best of the best.
When she finds out one of her marks is actually her sister she let’s her go, only to end up on the wrong side of the council.
Forced to prove herself she hunts her next mark, a werewolf. Injured and hungry, she is forced to do what she must to survive. Her actions upset the ancient council and she finds herself now being the one thing she has always despised — the Hunted.

Lotus: Don’t let the pretty name fool you. This daughter is no delicate flower.

Lotus grew up orphaned. Having no idea who her real parents were, she’s been drifting around the U.S. for over 100 years moving every 15 years or so since she just doesn’t seem to age. She’d figured out on her own that she had to be at least part vampire, as she needs to suck on a few blood bags a month to survive.

Working as a detective with the Denver P.D., Lotus is searching desperately for a serial killer who is murdering the homeless of the city. Except these are not ritualistic or thrill killings. These victims have been drained of blood and Lotus knows, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that they have been committed by a vampire.

Her search will take her to Las Vegas, and that is where the true adventure will begin, when she finds out who has been searching for her.

All stories are “Part I” to each Daughter’s journey.

The Covenant of Wickersham Hollow

By Thomas A, Bradley

Wickersham Hollow holds the dark secret of a deal made in hell, a deal made on Halloween night in 1697. The secret is kept within a house – a house with a will of its own, a house long empty of living souls – a house with a heart of pure evil. Sequestered within that house, within its walls and hallways, is the memory of a covenant, a pact born of a man’s lust for the body and soul a young woman. A pact forged in witchcraft by Torrance Wickersham, the founder of Wickersham Hollow.

Now, three hundred years later, led by Tommy Vorland, seven teenagers (Henry Travis, Amy Pritchard, Lucy Darrow, Matt Holloway, Janet Egan and Tina Farley), in search of a Halloween night thrill get more than they bargained for, when they make their way into the old Wickersham house and awaken a malevolence that has lain dormant for centuries. Their nightmare begins when they discover that the house has a malicious mind of its own and Lucy is gruesomely murdered by one of its tricks. Things go from bad to hellish when Tommy is beset by a ghostly apparition that drives him insane, leaving Henry and Amy to take charge and find a way to get everyone out. But escape becomes no more than an elusive shadow when Wickersham’s spirit once again roams free and turns his lustful desires toward Amy. Now, trapped in a dungeon at the mercy of Wickersham and the demon incubus he summoned, Henry and Amy must prepare themselves for the unthinkable.

But this battle is not yet over, as an unexpected ally rises to turn the tide. The spirit of Mother Cassandra, a voodoo priestess who lost her daughter and her life to Wickersham all those years ago, bestows upon the group a gift and a curse – the ability to read each other’s thoughts and summon a power none knew they held within. But all gifts come with a price. And when a dark deal is proffered, Henry accepts and is given a way to lead the group to safety. Their nightmare was over.

Or was it?

Seventy years later, Henry Travis, now eighty-six, discovers that his granddaughter, Annabel, and her husband, Brian, have purchased and renovated the old Wickersham place. He now knows the time has come to unveil its secrets – and his. He also knows that the time has come to honor the deal he made all those years ago. Somehow he must convince Annabel and Brian to abandon that house before it’s too late. When his attempts to dissuade them fail and they take possession of the house, the nightmare begins again, and their only hope for survival depends on the reunion of old friends, and the assistance of a descendant of Torrance Wickersham, the only man who know the secret within the secret, and may just hold the key to ending the nightmare once and for all. The questions are: can they summon the courage to go back into that house; are they strong enough to defeat a festering evil that has three hundred years to grow stronger, and are they prepared to face what just might be their last stand?

Gypsy Hunted

By Andrea Drew

Misery meets Medium…

Reluctant psychic Gypsy Shields (she prefers the term “intuition consultant”) finds herself in trouble when, on her way home from a blind date, she interrupts a kidnapping in progress. Her heroic attempt to intervene is repaid with a collision between the attacker’s van and a brick wall. She awakens in hospital, paralyzed on her left side and unable to speak. Unable to share vital information about the crime she witnessed. Fortunately, her telepathic connection with her niece helps her throw a line out, attracting the attention of a police detective: Connor Reardon, Gypsy’s date the night of the attack.

Stepping in to protect Gypsy, Connor even listens to her claims of psychic power. She soon senses he’s concealing certain powers of his own. Nor are they all he’s concealing. A part of Gypsy’s new ally’s mind is closed to her. What she cannot know is that Connor suspects the kidnapper is someone close to him, and the victim holds secrets that will tear through Connor’s department, putting careers and lives at risk. Including Gypsy’s, as she is left recovering in hospital and vulnerable as the attacker turns his sights on her once again.

Can she use her powers to track down the perpetrator in time to prevent her own murder?

As one of the newly made elders in his small town, Shane finds himself taking on the role of caretaker for a large group of juvenile survivors.

The Fragment Trilogy: The Willow Tree

By Bekki Pate

“I heard the snap of their jaws, the click and scrape of their fingernails on the cold, metal door. They were angry, impatient and hungry. Their loud tortured screams pierced the otherwise quiet corridor; there was no one left now. No one left, except me.”
Nick Jenkins cannot sleep. He drinks too much. All he can think about is her, and the night she disappeared. He is being taunted by her face, by those creatures who keep wearing it, mocking him. He is close, so close, but he is not the only one looking for her. Who will get to her first? And if he finds her, will she be the same as he remembered?

It was hard to know what to expect when I read the synopsis for this book, but it was a very good book. It starts with multiple viewpoints of the main characters. Nicks brother gives himself up to save Nick, Aria tries to escape horrible creatures and Freya, from back in the 1800’s loses a baby brother when he drowns in the lake. Nick grows up and becomes a kind of hunter. He is looking for Jenny, his girlfriend and all the characters tie together. Nick does his best to protect Jenny and stop the monsters. It was well written and had strong characters. Definitely worth reading.

Immortal Reign

By Aiden James

***Formerly REIGN OF COINS***

For William Barrow, two thousand years is a very long time…too long, when it is a perpetual punishment for betraying Jesus Christ.

The man originally known as Judas Iscariot is on a mission to recover thirty silver shekels once paid to him for his ultimate treachery. Twenty-two coins have been recovered, leaving just eight to go. But when his Russian nemesis, Viktor Kaslow, also becomes immortal, the stakes are immediately raised.

Kaslow has followed William and his son, Alistair, to Hong Kong in search of a ‘blood coin’ passed down through Genghis Khan. The coin presently belongs to an esteemed Chinese collection. But along with the coin are other cursed items from the famed Mongol Emperor. William soon learns he can’t have the ‘one’ without the others.

William has waited eight hundred years for a second chance to reclaim this particular coin that inspired the Mongolian Empire’s bloody violence it was once famous for. While Kaslow closes in, seeking his own vengeance, William and Alistair race against the CIA and an unscrupulous American businessman intent on reaching the cursed ‘treasure trove’ before them.

Much is at stake for the Barrows and the world, as a deadly weapon unseen for centuries lies in wait alongside blood coin number twenty-three….

Acclaim for the novels of Aiden James:

“The intense writing style of Aiden James kept my eyes glued to the story and the pages seemed to fly by at warp speed. …Twists, turns, and surprises pop up at random times to keep the reader off balance. It all blends together to create one of the best stories I have read all year.”
–Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews for “The Devil’s Paradise”

“Aiden James has written a deeply psychological, gripping tale that keeps the readers hooked from page one.”
–Bookfinds review for “The Forgotten Eden”

“Aiden James writing style flows very easily and I found that “Cades Cove” snowballed into a very gripping tale. Clearly the strengths in the piece were as the spirit’s interaction became prevalent with the family… The Indian lore and ceremonies and the flashbacks to Allie Mae’s (earthly) demise were very powerful. I think those aspects separated the work from what we’ve seen before in horror and ghost tales.”
–Evelyn Klebert, author of “A Ghost of a Chance” and “Dragonflies”

“Aiden James has a keen eye for detail and an uncanny knack for scaring the hell out of me. We are watching a master at work. “The Raven Mocker” is a nearly perfect thriller. Ghost stories don’t get any better than this.”
–J.R. Rain, Bestselling author of the “Vampire for Hire” series

“As with the previous titles I have read by this author, I found the author’s writing style to be silky smooth and the main plot line to be extremely creative. The fertile imagination of Aiden James definitely knows what today’s readers want to see in their stories.”
–Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews for “The Vampires’ Last Lover”

Dying for a Living

By Kory M. Shrum

Fans of contemporary and urban fantasy will enjoy this series. Don’t be surprised to find dark humor, lots of snark, and a murder mystery, all wrapped up in a single thrilling, action-packed narrative.

Called “addictive” by New York Times Bestseller Darynda Jones, those interested in strong female protagonists are sure to take a shine to Jesse Sullivan, the reluctant anti-hero of the series.

Synopsis for Dying for a Living:
On the morning before her 67th death, it is business as usual for Jesse Sullivan: meet with the mortician, counsel soon-to-be-dead clients, and have coffee while reading the latest regeneration theory. Jesse dies for a living, literally. As a Necronite, she is one of the population’s rare 2% who
can serve as a death replacement agent, dying so others don’t have to. Although each death is different, the result is the same: a life is saved, and Jesse resurrects days later with sore muscles, new scars, and another hole in her memory.

But when Jesse is murdered and becomes the sole suspect in a federal investigation, more than her freedom and sanity are at stake. She must catch the killer herself–or die trying.

The Door that Leads Nowhere

By Tracy Stewart

Horror Collection

Horror 1: The Door That Leads Nowhere

Sheriff Ken Waring knows first hand all about the Farraday house, as do most of the townspeople. They want the place pulled down, and although this was looked into, legal precedent says this is not possible.

The Farradays were found within a room of that house slaughtered. Ken Waring still remembers the bodies, the odors and the blood stains. Since that day, the house has become dilapidated, though offers shelter for those seeking it. The catch – they may never live to tell the tale.

When Katy and David find the house on their voyage, it seems a temptingly good place to lay their heads for a couple of nights. What happens next is only known by those who were there and who experienced it first hand. The Farraday house is a renowned haunted venue which has secrets all of its own. Among those secrets is a facing up to fears that both Sheriff Ken Waring and Katy’s mother have had to come to terms with. Can anyone escape?

Horror 2: Worst Fears Confronted

The Farraday house is a house that locals believe to be possessed by evil spirits, following the mass slaughter that took place there in the past. Now, empty and offering shelter to strangers in passing, the house stands by the side of the road between Leicester and Rangston. A passing Amish man asks Sheriff Ken Waring if there is somewhere that he can stay for a couple of nights. Not wishing to stay in hotels or places of luxury, the Farraday residence seems to offer all that this traveling man needs. However, does it?

Will the house become a danger to him? Local resident students, who have grown up with the notion that the Farraday house is evil, set out to prove that the story is nonsense. Will they achieve this? Will the exorcism performed by the local Catholic priest prove to have been effective against the background of numerous disappearances? This continuation from the first in the series catches readers up with the latest happenings in this haunted abode.

Horror 3: Without a Single Trace

When property developers visit the town of Leicester, little are they prepared for the resistance of the residents. There have been rumors about how much this would affect the lives of people who had lived in Leicester all of their lives.

Ella and Alice have the key property and if they agree to sell up, Leicester becomes a town with a history, though not one with a future. Enlisting the help of the sheriff, Ella and Alice move into the Farraday place to evade the real estate agent acting on behalf of the developers, who is pretty determined to make a deal.

Will she survive her visit to the Farraday house? What happens when Alice and Ella are confronted by one of the surviving Farraday family members? What lies behind the door for those who dare to enter it? Only readers of the whole story will be able to find out.

Horror 4: Shelter

Lee Harris and his girlfriend, Pam came across the Farraday place when looking for somewhere to live. Out on their luck, with a baby on the way, the thought of a roof over their heads was tempting even though the reputation of the house was well documented.

The evil that lurked within the Farraday place was renowned, but they figured that if they managed to avoid the area which was known for working its evil on people, perhaps they stood a chance. When Bradley Willis enters their world demanding repayment of money owed by Lee, how will they deal with it?

The Farraday legend continues with a story of hope, a story of despair and a story of fear. The shelter that the house seemed to have been offering them came with a price-tag. Were they prepared to meet that price?.

Least Likely To Survive

By Lisa Biesiada

Angie Thompson is 29 and never amounted to much. So of course when the zombie apocalypse started, all she cared about was making sure she had enough weed and a safe place to ride it out; after all, when no cares about you, there’s no one for you to care about.

At least that was the plan until she meets the ultra-famous Jack Jones and accidentally kills his security guard. Angie can’t say no to a man that smells that good when he decides they need to stop and rescue teens Ty and Chloe from a Taco Bell and drop them off in San Antonio. And that’s where things get really weird.
Angie’s plans are soon thrown for a loop when she uncovers a government conspiracy and has to figure out how to not only get out alive, but bring her new friends along for the ride.

I just downloaded this book a few days ago, and once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down! There is so much to like about this book that it constantly threw me for a loop and wielded surprise after surprise. Just when you think the author will back off and take it to a safe place, you’re wrong. It makes the tension so much greater, and is such a welcome sigh of relief in the world of art today. When it seems like all Hollywood is interested in doing is making predictably laughable material, this author has gone beyond the standard stock experience, and created truly a work of art.

From the opening scene, to the final setting, I was riveted to the screen of my smartphone. Something I found myself being grateful for, as I am not currently in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. Nevertheless, the author weaves a story of nuanced passion, adventure, and humor that you really identify with each character. Like, omg, it was totes amazing. 😉

The characters are so well-defined, and I found myself actually shouting in happiness during a couple of the scenes in the book; something which has only occurred twice while reading other authors (George Orwell and Stephen King, to let you know). I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’ll leave it for you to read and enjoy on your own.

If you’re a fan of zombie fiction, or simply a fan of a budding romance and adventure novel filled with characters you can relate to, please block out a few days (or weeks, depending on how fast you read) on your calendar to read this novel. I promise, you’ll devour it just as hungrily as a zombie devours people at a sporting event.

A plague of werewolves spreads across the world. A sunspot larger than anything in recorded history begins to grow. Yet both pale in comparison to the true threat, the evil the werewolves were created to fight.

Demon Frenzy

By Harvey Click

Sometimes going home again is a lot like going to hell.

Searching for her lost brother, Amy Jackson returns to her isolated hometown in the Appalachian Mountains. But Blackwood has changed. Now it’s run by a mysterious drug lord who has something more lethal than guns to protect him. He has demons—more vicious, venomous demons than even Hieronymus Bosch ever dreamed of—and after Amy witnesses an unspeakable atrocity he unleashes all the frenzied furies of hell against her. Soon she is stalked by snakewalkers, herky-jerkies, toadfaces, listeners, harpies, centicreepers, and the sinister crying man, who weeps while he torments his victims.

After reading The Bad Box, I knew to expect multifaceted characters, hateful villains, and magical realism. But what I didn’t expect was Click’s foray into waters normally home to thriller authors. There were guns, knives, explosions and more — all nestled comfortably inside a big screen good vs. evil plot. And demons! Lots of demons, and they kind of freaked me out a little.

Forever Fifteen

By Kimberly Steele

Lucy Albert is not your ordinary maladjusted suburban adolescent. Born into the era of the Black Plague in medieval Italy, Lucy is chosen as a mate by the sinister vampire Sebastianus against her will. Struggling to survive in a modern world she cannot identify with, Lucy isn’t looking for attention.

Welcome to Forever Fifteen, where a lonely girl seeks refuge in a world awash in everyday brutality, a world where only blood and death can sate her hunger. Journey into Lucy’s past as you experience the terror of the Black Death and the harsh reality of womanhood in the Middle Ages. Enter Forever Fifteen, the fast-paced thrill ride that is redefining vampire horror.

Though the plot of this female-protagonist driven novel has similarities to Twilight, Forever Fifteen is NOT recommended for children because of gore, violence, and erotic content.

Forever Fifteen is Kimberly Steele’s first novel. It was the first free vampire audiobook ever to be released on the internet in 2005.

From Kimberly Steele: Thank you to all the Forever Fifteen fans who have supported and believed in my first novel! I never expected my first book, a novel that I pumped out in a year’s time about a reluctant but brutal bloodsucker who looks like a fifteen year old girl, to become a phenomenon that would change my entire life. I never so much as completed a short story before Forever Fifteen, but one day I found myself stranded in the country with no computer (eek) and began to write a story about a nightmare that I had for many years. The story quickly became a novel. Not wanting to go through the irritation and dismay of rejection letters from publishing houses, I self-published Forever Fifteen and subsequently released it as the first free vampire audiobook on the internet around the year 2005. Since I already did recording at home as a musician, I decided that I would record Forever Fifteen in my home recording studio and release it 100% free. Forever Fifteen soon developed an enormous group of rabid fans. I was deluged in supportive email which has never stopped even to this day. I never thought that my extremely dark writing style would go over very well, yet people have told me that they enjoy the realism and the violence of my non-rock star vampires . . . and by the way, not a single one of them sparkles!

The viral response of fans demanding a sequel has been so great that I find that I can remain independent and still make a living on my fiction. Even though I am not published by a publisher, I have have more exposure and a larger fan base than many of my contemporaries who have actual deals! I get emails every week about the Forever Fifteen sequels. Thank you fans for telling me that you love my book and that you want me to write more of them. Writing horror has turned into one of the great joys of my life. Your supportive emails drive me to tell these stories that I have come to love dearly.

The film rights of Forever Fifteen are currently under option to be developed into a film and possible TV series.

Occult Assassin: Damnation Code

By Wiilliam Massa

Apocalyptic cults. Cursed rituals. Paranormal terrorists.

Driven by vengeance, one soldier declares war against the forces of darkness.

After a decade spent fighting the enemy abroad and keeping his country safe, Delta Force Operator Mark Talon is ready to settle down with the love of his life. But Talon’s world crumbles when his fiancée becomes the victim of a murderous cult. The military man now has a new foe in his crosshairs, and this promises to be a very different war.

The person responsible for his beloved’s death is a Silicon Valley tycoon allied with the forces of darkness. Fusing cutting-edge computer technology with an ancient evil, the enemy here cannot be stopped by bullets alone. If Talon is to be victorious in his mission of vengeance, he will need to master a new method of warfare — the arcane arts! He must become… the Occult Assassin.

Zombie Youth: Playground Politics

By H.E. Goodhue

What will the survivors do when every one over the age of twenty suddenly dies in a viral outbreak? Worse yet, what will they do when the dead refuse stay that way?

A group of students are left trapped in their school as the adults they once relied upon suffer strange symptoms and die, only to return and feed. With no guidance or supervision the students are left to recreate society as they see fit. But not everyone shares their vision of the future…Zombie Youth:Playground Politics is the first novel in a new series following a group of survivors struggling to stay alive in a world where there are things far worse than zombies.

H.E. Goodhue tells a fast paced story that deals with the horrifying situation of the dead returning in a world where few adults are left alive. The teens in Zombie Youth: Playground Politics are tough and resourceful and immediately form their own army. They prove wise beyond their years and relationships begin to form while the old rules fall away. While some of the themes are familiar to other zombie survivor stories, the characters are all well drawn and sympathetic. H.E. Goodhue put in a lot of research on weaponry and virology to make it believable but not too complicated to understand for young adults. The zombies are descriptive and the mutations really amp up the carnage. A strong story with a twist in the ending that could lead to a sequel.

Midnight Harvest

By Elias Anderson

When a string of increasingly brutal serial murders spills into his jurisdiction, William Coe, a Homicide detective stricken with OCD and an eidetic memory, is forced to search for answers as the body count grows. As clues begin to surface, Coe starts to wonder about the exact nature of the killer he’s after. In a game of cat and mouse that could make or break his career, he’s forced to follow a trail that will lead him to places darker than he could have ever imagined…

I didn’t know what to expect when I picked this up, because I don’t
really read much horror, but I read a few other books by this same
writer and really dug them, so I thought I’d give it a shot. I don’t
wanna give too much away and like I said I don’t read a lot of horror so I don’t have much to compare it to, but this book is INSANE. I really, really enjoyed it. Heads up though, there is a TON of blood and violence in this, and some of it gets pretty detailed. I guess this is probably normal for the category. Book 2, here I come…

Dying for a Living

By Kory M. Shrum

Fans of contemporary and urban fantasy will enjoy this series. Don’t be surprised to find dark humor, lots of snark, and a murder mystery, all wrapped up in a single thrilling, action-packed narrative.

Called “addictive” by New York Times Bestseller Darynda Jones, those interested in strong female protagonists are sure to take a shine to Jesse Sullivan, the reluctant anti-hero of the series.

Synopsis for Dying for a Living:
On the morning before her 67th death, it is business as usual for Jesse Sullivan: meet with the mortician, counsel soon-to-be-dead clients, and have coffee while reading the latest regeneration theory. Jesse dies for a living, literally. As a Necronite, she is one of the population’s rare 2% who
can serve as a death replacement agent, dying so others don’t have to. Although each death is different, the result is the same: a life is saved, and Jesse resurrects days later with sore muscles, new scars, and another hole in her memory.

But when Jesse is murdered and becomes the sole suspect in a federal investigation, more than her freedom and sanity are at stake. She must catch the killer herself–or die trying.

Edwina

By Willow Rose

Marie-Therese is about to take in another child in foster-care. But Edwina is no ordinary girl as Marie-Therese is about to discover. Stories of death and destruction follow her trail and soon events in the small Danish town will take a decidedly macabre turn on one horrifying and endless night.

EDWINA is a spinoff from Willow Rose’s third book in her Rebekka Franck-series Five, Six … Grab your crucifix but can be read separately.

Whoever did the cover design for this novel is excellent…I know on the side bar I saw that author, Willow Rose used her actual daughter’s eye, but the illuminating, color green is very attractive…It made me want to know what was underneath that cover….When you read this book you will see why..Some author’s are very capable of drawing you into their horrifc world, with perfect detailed descriptions and great characterization that by page two you have visual images in your mind instantly, like your watching a movie…..Not all authors can do that….Right from the start I had chills immediately, when first meeting this child, special case, demon, or I don’t even know….So, we will just call her “Edwina”..When you read this novel maybe you will be able to tell…This is a very bloody, gorey, supernatural and terrifying thriller…

Edwina is severely deformed, feral and doesn’t even speak, because her biological parents locked her away for years..She is a result from the radioactive fallout, of the “Chernobly Accident” in 1986 in the Ukraine…Since then she has been in and out of many foster homes and Psychiatic Wards, because wherever she goes bloody death follows….

Marie-Therse Lundtofte is a foster parent and decides to take Edwina into her home with her other two children..You see her mother was a religious woman who always spoke of paying back “God” for all the good things he has bestowed her..That’s the code Marie-Therese lives by but I don’t think “God” was really paying attention this time..Terrifying chaos will start to takover the entire small town of Arnake…I was freaking out the whole time reading this novel, right up to the very explosive, shocking ending…

The most spine tingling scene in the end, is when a mysterious, powerful man will walk in the door and promise to take good care of Edwina like they all do….This reminded me of the scene in the movie, “The Exorcist” where actor, (Max von Sydow), who plays the Priest, Lankester Merrin, is walking down the street towards the MacNeil’s house where we all know what’s to come next….
So, if you didn’t read author Willow Rose’s novel, “Five, Six, Grab Your Crucifix” don’t yet because I am glad I didn’t either….This novel is stand alone, but really is a an excellent prequel that will leave you wanting more…..You won’t be disappointed….

Red Hot Steele

By Alex P. Berg

Detective Jake Daggers likes his murder investigations the way he likes his women–straightforward, easy, and with a killer body.

So when his older-than-dust partner throws his back out on a goblin raid, his captain assigns him a new running mate–a sexy young half-elf by the name of Shay Steele.

It seems like a match made in Daggers’ imagination, but Steele’s no pushover. She’s a powerful forensic psychic, and she’s got sass oozing out of her boots.

In a debut case teeming with fire mages, foundries, and a dead guy who’s crispier than bacon, it’s pretty clear Daggers isn’t the only one getting a heaping helping of RED HOT STEELE.

Red Hot Steele is a fun, fast-paced read, and I have to admit, it’s not quite like anything I’ve read before. It’s a mystery novel set in a fantasy world, but it’s not set in a typical contemporary urban fantasy setting. It’s a made up fantasy world filled with traditional fantasy creatures, from elves and dwarves to witches and wizards, but in an urban environment. It’s sort of like Middle-Earth meets mid-19th century New York or London.

The main characters are Jake Daggers and Shay Steele. Daggers is a tough, cynical homicide detective, and he initially comes across as a huge jerk, but on the plus side he’s quite funny. You eventually warm up to him as you learn his back story, and by the end of the novel he’d redeemed himself for his rude behavior. On the other side you have Shay Steele, his new half-elf, psychic partner. She’s smart and a little sassy, and the relationship between her and Daggers starts out rather rocky, to say the least.

As far as the plot is concerned, I really enjoyed it. It has tons of twists and turns, and while I didn’t suspect the murderer, in retrospect it made total sense. There’s also one final plot twist that I really didn’t see coming that adds A LOT to the story. Overall, I absolutely recommend it. If you’re a fan of fantasy or mystery books, or you like to watch TV shows like Castle or Bones, you should really enjoy this book.

Joe Hark is a drunk, a live wire, and the night marshal of Pitchfork County. He just wants the monsters, including his own cursed family, to leave him alone long enough to drown his haunted memories in an ocean of whiskey. When someone hangs a mutilated girl from a cross, it’s just the start of Joe’s latest nightmare.

As he hunts for the killer, Joe finds a nest of meth-addled cultists with roots in his own tortured past. It turns out his enemies want to call up a nightmarish god so vile, it’ll eviscerate Joe, his family, and the world at large.

Joe has no choice but to team up with unlikely allies in a winner-takes-all battle. When the power of the cult grows, Joe learns the only way to stop the destruction may be his own sacrifice.

Half-Made Girls is the first installment in the Pitchfork County series, which features graphic violence, fresh mythology, strangely disturbing images, a freight train pace, and a warped sense of humor. If you liked Lukyanenko’s Night Watch, Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files, or Clive Barker’s Weaveworld, then you’ll love this highly imaginative dark horror series from author Sam Witt.

Daughters of Darkness

By Chrissy Peebles

Four authors will each take a different daughter born from the Prince of Darkness, Vlad Montour. (Also known as Vlad the Impaler, an evil villain from history)

Blair – Chrissy Peebles
Jezebel – Kristen Middleton
Victoria – W.J. May
Lotus – C.J. Pinard

Blair: Half witch and half vampire.

She lives with a coven of witches and hasn’t had any contact with her vampire heritage. Blair is living the perfect life until one day, everything crashes down around her. She is forced to leave everything she knows and loves, and must go on the run to save her life.
Jezebel: A red-haired vampire/succubus with dark appetites.

She’s also a Private Investigator, living in Sin City, and tracking down cheating spouses is her specialty. Life is good, until one night when Jez is visited by a stranger, named Dorian Hart, who hands her a letter with some shocking revelations.

Victoria: Only Death Could Stop Her Now

Victoria is a Hunter Vampire, one of the last of her kind. She’s the best of the best.
When she finds out one of her marks is actually her sister she let’s her go, only to end up on the wrong side of the council.
Forced to prove herself she hunts her next mark, a werewolf. Injured and hungry, she is forced to do what she must to survive. Her actions upset the ancient council and she finds herself now being the one thing she has always despised — the Hunted.

Lotus: Don’t let the pretty name fool you. This daughter is no delicate flower.

Lotus grew up orphaned. Having no idea who her real parents were, she’s been drifting around the U.S. for over 100 years moving every 15 years or so since she just doesn’t seem to age. She’d figured out on her own that she had to be at least part vampire, as she needs to suck on a few blood bags a month to survive.

Working as a detective with the Denver P.D., Lotus is searching desperately for a serial killer who is murdering the homeless of the city. Except these are not ritualistic or thrill killings. These victims have been drained of blood and Lotus knows, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that they have been committed by a vampire.

Her search will take her to Las Vegas, and that is where the true adventure will begin, when she finds out who has been searching for her.

All stories are “Part I” to each Daughter’s journey.

Arisen : Nemesis

By Michael Stephen Fuchs

With nearly a quarter million copies sold, the ARISEN series is said by readers to be:

“the wildest and best rollercoaster I’ve ever been on” … “Pulse-pounding action at a relentless pace” … “THE ABSOLUTE BEST FREAKING SERIES IN THIS GENRE” … “the most unputdownable military zombie apocalypse arc ever” … “for adrenaline junkies only” … “A full-on express elevator to hell!!!” … “A one-of-a-kind ZA opus. The indomitable warrior spirit shines through from start to finish” … “the best I have ever read in apocalypse fiction of any kind” … “Riveting. Full of horror and beauty” … “These guys are the juggernauts of their genre” … “the best of the best! Sweeping, epic, engaging, and thrilling” … “keeps on delivering action, thrills & destruction at every turn” … “Just one more page, I say, then it’s 2am again” … “Another literary heart attack”

ARISEN : NEMESIS is an Amazon #1 bestseller in Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction and #1 in Dystopian. Can be read as a standalone novel, an intro to the series, or at any point alongside the main series.

Wow! While reading each book in the Arisen series is akin to riding a roller coaster, Nemesis is unrelenting from the first page to the last. I love that Fuchs frequently pays homage to “Aliens” by using some of the film’s most memorable lines that capture the non-stop, over the top military action, unrelenting zombies, and fighting the fanatical bad guys.

We were introduced to the characters in Arisen after the “fall”, but here, we join the Nemesis characters as they grapple to understand the inconceivable and adapt to new circumstances. SSgt. Kate Dunajski arrives at Camp Lemonnier to serve as CST with Special Operations Command. By her count, she is not on the ground eight minutes before the camp is attacked while simultaneous requests for assistance are flooding in from troops and medical personnel in the field. Within hours, she escapes with the remaining members of Triple Nickel, a US Army Special Forces team who survive the attack.

Unlike Team Alpha, who, over the course of the Arisen series, play a critical role in trying to save humanity, Triple Nickel has no contact with the outside world. They are well provisioned and create a remote camp where, for 18 months nothing happens — until an unmanned predator appears over their camp and a zombie herd approaches. From then on, it’s tighten the seat belts time when, joined by Zack and Baxter from Genesis, they go up against al-Shabaab which played a key role in creating the original virus. They fight to rescue a team member, fight bad guys who outnumber them 100 -1, fight zombies, find Patient (Zulu) Zero, and identify a traitor in the group.

While Nemesis is not a direct continuation in the Arisen series, it broadens the narrative and sets the scene in Africa for the series conclusion. The characters are strongly written and, like the members of Team Alpha, you will care what happens to them. It is a great addition to the series.

Firebird

By Kathy Tyers

Her Death was Expected but Something More Powerful Kept Her Alive

Lady Firebird was born to the royal family of Netaia. Because of her birthplace in the family, however, her life is expendable. Honorable suicide is the highest calling she could hope to attain. When she is chosen to lead an attack on the neighboring planet of Veroh her death is expected. Instead she is taken prisoner during the battle and is held by the enemy.

With her own people seeking her sacrifice, Firebird must choose between two worlds before she can carve out her new destiny. This is the story of Lady Firebird’s personal battle and its eternal consequences, not only for herself but for everyone around her, and especially the man who loves her.

This is an epic science fiction novel and the start of a trilogy plus two follow up books. I think that I first read Firebird around 11 years ago and loved it. I recently reread Firebird and I loved it as much as I first had. The settings are fully fleshed out, and the cultures of them developed. Plus the book contains romance, action, and suspense, it is not just a typical love story. The growth and progression between Firebird and Brennan is great. She is understandably hesitant about starting anything with him since she never imagined a future beyond dying young. He is never pushy though with her, he’s patient and there for her as a friend. I found their interactions endearing and the whole book to be enjoyable. There is a religious/Christian aspect to the book but it isn’t heavy-handed and doesn’t overpower the narrative. Overall, an excellent sci-fi novel and I highly recommend it!

This supernatural thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat as you turn each page, wondering what Sidney and Smoke will come up against next. For me this was one of those novels that you try to get back to every time you have a spare moment. If you like the supernatural genre, than this book is a great addition to your Kindle library.

A unique and reimagined take on a favorite. Same setting, different characters, and different story.

“I like how she connected the movie to the book and still you are like: what is this place.” 5 stars

“It’s like visiting with old friends, but you have the unexpected pleasure of new and mysterious visitors.” 5 stars

A story that takes place In Forks, Washington. Yes, it is connected to the Twilight series of books and movies but only in a small part where the connection is briefly mentioned. Amber and her mother move to Forks. The mother has some emotional problems and is in a relationship with the town’s deputy. Amber is in high school and drives herself there in her old car. It’s often raining and foggy but the sun does come out and shines. She senses something sinister and dark but doesn’t know what that is. She shakes off these feelings when they descend upon her. She soon meets two brothers Vincent and Viktor. They are both very attractive and she is drawn to both of them. But there is something off about them and all the kids she sees and meets at school. There seems to be something dark and sinister about the whole town. Even so, she makes friends with another girl who was hostile at first. That’s another thing Amber finds strange, students and people in the community asking her who’s side she is on or who does she like best. This doesn’t make sense to her. At one point she goes on a Twilight Tour with Glinda, Vincent and Viktor where she meets an Quileute boy who calls himself Lucky while on the La Push part of the tour. Things seem to get more dark and sinister and she can’t understand why. Amber is attacked at a party by two boys, one she was getting to know who say they are trying to save her from them. Soon enough she realizes the ‘Them’ are vampires. She doesn’t believe them. She meets up with Lucky again when she goes on a tour by herself and he tells her vampires are real. She soon realizes that they were telling the truth and that Viktor is one of the vampires. I found this to be a very readable and enjoyable book.

Timeliner: Like Moths to Light

By Luca Colonnese

A sci-fi comedy novel written in English, by an Italian author whose second language is French.

Hello, this is the author. I tried getting someone important to write something fascinating and inspiring here, sadly, the only people I know that bear any importance are my family and as such, they are rather irrelevant to you, the potential reader. I then tried to contact a former English teacher of mine so that he could write the foreword but for some reason he is the last remaining person on the planet without any social media accounts, not even Google Plus. I tried resorting to smoke signals to track him down but that failed miserably and instead I got ticketed by the local fire department.

So I gave up trying to find someone important to fill this space, instead enjoy this excerpt I’ve hand picked with my eyes from the book I typed with my fingers. Note that if you attempt reading the whole book, in your head, with an Italian accent you will fail: My Italian accent is terrible!

“Within half a second they had cleared the living room, it was empty except for the ugly furniture and a few cats. In the hallway nothing was found either and as they stepped in the kitchen, both were startled as two house-cats hissed at their sight with the immediate result that Trixie almost blew one away by discharging her weapon, mercifully, for the cat at least, she didn’t open fire.

The cat did wind up with a red dot on its forehead for about two seconds as Trixie recovered from her startle. Two seconds was long enough for about four other cats to take notice of the luminous dot and jump out at the first cat, then, as Trixie realized that’s all they were; cats, she moved her aim away from the now all out brawl that had erupted among the half dozen cats in the vicinity. The first cat she had aimed at, interpreted the action of all the other cats jumping at it as an aggression, as a result it had taken evasive action but it was now raised on its rear paws much like a ninja warrior would, back curved towards its front. It was about to take a much more offensive stance than just being “evasive.”

Trixie moved her aim away from the area and towards the bedroom, she loved the red laser aim almost as much as the clowder of cats did. At first she tried to keep it low to the ground, like she had seen actual actors do as they portrayed special ops members in movies.

Then she realized that was no help as it just triggered further altercations among the group of cats that were now following it around. Her second great idea had been to hold the aim up to the surrounding walls, sadly this only exacerbated things among the cats as not only were they still following the dot around, but they were now jumping all over the wall, some using furniture as stepping stones to jump up, and as a result they were tipping over plants, vases, lamps and other various and noisy trinkets.

Sighing, she decided to turn off the laser aim. This helped subside the glaring of cats as some of them simply walked away, no longer interested by the game. Two cats were still having a heated argument behind her now, near the living room hallway, she decided to ignore them and try to calm down a bit.”

Forever Fifteen

By Kimberly Steele

Lucy Albert is not your ordinary maladjusted suburban adolescent. Born into the era of the Black Plague in medieval Italy, Lucy is chosen as a mate by the sinister vampire Sebastianus against her will. Struggling to survive in a modern world she cannot identify with, Lucy isn’t looking for attention.

Welcome to Forever Fifteen, where a lonely girl seeks refuge in a world awash in everyday brutality, a world where only blood and death can sate her hunger. Journey into Lucy’s past as you experience the terror of the Black Death and the harsh reality of womanhood in the Middle Ages. Enter Forever Fifteen, the fast-paced thrill ride that is redefining vampire horror.

Though the plot of this female-protagonist driven novel has similarities to Twilight, Forever Fifteen is NOT recommended for children because of gore, violence, and erotic content.

Forever Fifteen is Kimberly Steele’s first novel. It was the first free vampire audiobook ever to be released on the internet in 2005.
