The Feast of All Souls

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...

Within These Walls

Ania Ahlborn should be revered as the queen of horror. Within These Walls is creepy, terrifying, and incredible all at the same time. The beginning gives no glimpse of what will happen by this book's end. Lucas is an average character. He m...

The House of Small Shadows

I am a huge Adam Nevill fan and was so excited to hear he had written a new book. When I received The House of Small Shadows in the mail I opened it immediately and began to read. The cover is quite macabre and a good introduction to the st...

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

Other than the gorgeous purple maze on the cover, I felt a slight kinship to Suspicion. For whatever reason, I recalled a horror movie from my childhood which featured a sinister maze overlooking a creepy hotel. It scared the pants off me a...

Zomburbia - Zombie Apocalypse Series, #1

Perhaps because it's starting to feel like the zombie craze is on its way out...this feels like a last quick grasp onto the fad. Don't get me wrong, spinning the idea that zombies are kind of this background supporting character instead of...

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...

Blood Kin

The setting for Blood Kin takes place between 1930 until modern day. It’s set in the Appalachian Mountains. They say that you can't judge a book by its cover, but this cover just made me want to open up the book and start reading. It has a...

Seduction - A Novel of Suspense

Portlandtown - A Tale of the Oregon Wyldes, #1

I’m not much of a zombie fan but a novel like Portlandtown, written by Rob DeBorde, was a book I could not put down. It’s not just a “zombie story” or an “Old West” story. It’s a story of secrets, magic and mystery. It’s a story of two men,...
