This isn't your normal ghost story. It starts out that way but boy, does it go in another direction. The author gives you everything that keeps the reader connected, fast pace, lots of action, characters that are a bit odd and terror. When...

Carter & Lovecraft

I chose Carter and Lovecraft because I was looking for something different. Well, I am glad to say that I found it! To me, this book had a Sleepy Hollow feel to it. The TV show, not the original story. Lovecraft is to Carter what Crane is t...

The Silence

The Silence is one of the best novels I’ve read in a long time. I love horror stories and this one captured my attention from page one. It was quite creative how the author threw out random facts and later tied them all into the storyline....

Stillwater

I have been a tremendous fan of author Maynard Sims for years. As someone who adores scary stories (I swear, I was raised on Stephen King!) this author has the art of the psychological scare down pat. Stillwater is another in a long line of...

Wakening the Crow

Stephen Gregory’s Wakening The Crow is a twisted tale that references Edgar Allan Poe. The plot of this novel seemed quite strange to me, but I couldn’t set it down. The use of a tooth as a talisman for change is very interesting. Every cha...

Suspicion

Mr. Mercedes

Stephen King is my favorite author and this book reminded me why. It starts off with people vying for a job in a bad economy. That in itself is very relatable to a lot of people. Then it introduces the people waiting just to kill them secon...
