There are typos, syntax issues and characters who change names, but also too many incidental characters that are developed for a chapter and then disappear.
Had the book been more rigorously edited and proofread , this would have been a recommendation. As it is, I found Hedge End rather disappointing. Casting Shadows by J. Altogether, his plans for human destruction are going about as well as the rest of his life. Casting Shadows is a surprising little tale. From the beginning this dark magic-themed tale of demons and sorcery and rage is far, far more about one man finding his own soul and purpose.
I really enjoyed it. There are some editing hiccups in my copy that might annoy other readers, but I found them easy to overlook in the scope of the story. Casting Shadows is a nice little twist on the demonic youth trope. Trade paperback, ebook edition.
Inspector Tom Hatcher is sent to investigate the weird happenings at Fort Pendleton and the Manitou Outpost, including insanity and cannibalism. Hatcher was part of the team that caught Gustave Meraux, the Cannery Cannibal who terrorized Montreal. Father Xavier is called to the asylum because the warden thinks Meraux is possessed. Could the same thing be happening at the settlement?
Hatcher must discover the reason for the death and gruesome bloodshed occurring at this remote trapping outpost in the icy frontier of Ontario. Can Anika, a native scout, help Tom Hatcher discover the truth before he also succumbs to whatever has taken hold of the settlers? A very well-written story, Dead of Winter is bloody, violent, and frightening. Moreland manages to create a suitably claustrophobic atmosphere, even though the story takes place in the wide open wilderness.
There is a bleakness that runs through the entire novel and stays with you, just as the cold temperatures the characters are dealing with. Character development is concise and will have you empathizing with or disliking them. I especially enjoyed the dynamic between Tom Hatcher and Anika.
It was an entirely believable relationship. Dead of Winter is a very entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable read. Violence, gore and adult language. Two men, Inspector Tom Hatcher and Father Xavier, find themselves thrown together in an isolated, snowed in fort, facing down a plague of cannibal corpses and worse. Claiming the town one by one, this evil is more than the native Wendigo, more than flesh-hungry humans and more than a demonic presence in the woods. Dead of Winter reads like typical horror fare.
It's exciting and more than a little gory. The characters are not always sympathetic, sometimes outright evil. And, typical of period pieces there's a lot of referencing to natives as savages, and less than human.
For readers looking for a scary snow storm read, there's fun to be had, provided you can look past the stereotypical treatment of women and minorities. Granger to aid in the investigation. Suzanne is determined to discover the cause of the murder. First of all, I love the setting for Hell Gate. It contrasts the innocence of the time against the brutality of what is going on with a seemingly innocuous side show, in a place full of distractions from everyday life.
Suzanne is a complex character. Despising her powers on the one hand, yet determined to help solve the crime for which the police have arrested her friend Cittie, she holds her own when forced to go up against a cop whose views on women are less than complimentary. As the story unfolded, I thought I knew who was who and what was going to happen.
Massie throws quite a curve ball! Hell Gate is a supernatural thriller that is sure to make your hair stand on end. Reviewed by Colleen Wanglund. Bobby Ray Ledbetter, a career criminal, is being released from prison. He has served his time, and is now free to return to his life.
After a year of odd jobs and no jobs, Bobby Ray decides to break into a house in an upper middle class neighborhood, looking for money. He breaks into the home of Eric and Vanessa Fitzgerald.
Bobby Ray attacks Eric, throwing him down the stairs and killing him. Vanessa Fitzgerald is in a coma, and the break-in has made front page news, because Eric Fitzgerald was the son of state senator Sam Fitzgerald. While in her coma, Vanessa speaks to her late husband. When she comes out of her coma, the doctors are very skeptical, even when she tells them where to look for her daughter.
She begs doctors to put her back into a coma so she can talk to Eric some more. News reports circulate that Vanessa has claimed to have spoken to her husband after his death. Sebastian Dietrich, has a theory about life after death, and he wants to test it on Vanessa. He places her in a medically induced coma, and she releases her husband, Eric, to get revenge on those who killed him, and also to find and rescue his daughter.
This story was very interesting, and it was very gripping, as the premise of robbery and kidnapping is present in everyday society. There is also the supernatural aspect of life after death, and the question of whether we go on after we die. It also deals with greed, revenge, and love. This book is recommended or adult readers. Violence, rape, kidnapping and murder. Reviewed by Diana Lord.
Paperback, hardcover, Kindle edition. It is London, , and Eliza and her father go to see a Charles Dickens performance in which he frightens the audience, setting the tone for the book.
Shortly thereafter, Eliza accepts a governess position in Norfolk, at crumbling Gaudlin Hall. She finds her charges alone, with no parents seemingly around.
Eliza feels from the beginning that she is being stalked by an unseen, malign, and violent force. When she learns that previous governesses have died mysteriously, she decides to get to the bottom of it, taking her life in her hands as she learns the mysteries of Gaudlin Hall.
Elements of the 19 th Century ghost story are present: The heroine, Eliza, is a winsome narrator with a no-nonsense determination and a decidedly modern take on things. Are you ready for the Apocalypse? Back in the Middle Ages, a small island in Italy, called Diavolino, was the home of monks who practiced the black arts. They kidnapped couples from the town of Poggio del Lago, and used them in horrible rituals.
A priest named Clavetti arrives in town and offers to help. Clavetti goes to Diavolino, sees what is happening, and urges the townspeople to rise up and burn down the monastery.
After the burning of the monastery, Diavolino is wiped off of the map. Fast forward to the present: Paggio del Lago needs tourists and tourism, although the residents are suspicious of foreigners. A British millionaire, Sir Roger, has bought Diavolino from the mayor, and wants to build a house there. The townspeople are vehemently against it, though, and when Roger hires architect Tom Lupton and his wife Elspeth to design his house, the people decide to take matters into their own hands to protect the secret of Diavolino.
This book started slowly, in building up the characters and setting the mood, but once it got going, it was relentless, non-stop action. There were plot twist and turns that kept this reader guessing who was on what side-- good or evil—and which side would win in the end. Recommended for adult readers. Contains gore, a butchered dog, rape, and murder. Tropic of Darkness by Tony Richards.
Pocket Star Books, Jack Gilliard is an American expatriate who has lived around the world for more than a decade. A product of an unhappy home, he hit the road at fifteen, armed with the only good thing from his childhood, his cornet, and a six inch knife he picked up in a card game. Persistence and survival are his lot in life. He starts having dreams of the 's, when the mob ruled Cuba, and cries of revolution filled the streets, and wakes to a reality that is worse. People around him are committing suicide.
Spirits from the past call to Jack. He sorts out that an ancient curse is somehow involved. He decides to leave the island before it's too late when the tune begins in his head. I liked this thriller. It had great pacing and really drew me in. The author's description of the setting gave me a great sense of location, providing enough detail without going overboard. His use of dialogue was very well done, and each of the characters' voices shone.
The use of flashback scenes tied in with the present day action was fun and worked really well for me. The tension built well as the story progressed and kept me turning pages. All in all, Tropic of Darkness is a well-crafted tale, and well worth reading.
I rate this work as Highly Recommended for adult readers. Doogie Horner illustrates this by displaying a simple black-and-white line drawing with touches of blue of each ghost on one page and a brief description, usually one or two words, on the facing page.
In a collection of whimsically described and drawn ghosts, there are hits and misses—some of the ghosts are very creative and will make you giggle like the Bond Villian and the Fantastic Four , while others Winged Victory of Samonthrace will make you wonder what Horner was thinking. While this is a cute idea, especially around Halloween, I have trouble imagining the target audience for this book.
The initial description suggested to me that it was a book my seven year old would enjoy, and he did, but the cultural references and design of the book suggest that it is really intended for adults, maybe as a gift book. However, those who saw the book, while they agreed that the idea is a fun one, did not feel like it was an essential purchase either for themselves or someone else. Reviewed by Kirsten Kowalewski. Pretty Dead Little Dead Things and Concrete Grove put him on the map, solidifying his place amongst the brightest rising British horror writers, but this novella should garner him an even stronger limelight.
Adam Morris the name is an admitted nod to Adam Nevill and Mark Morris, two other fine British authors is rebuilding his life that he broke long ago. He sees his little girl every other weekend; his ex-wife retains custody even as she spirals into drug addiction.
Adam moves into a house across the street from where a serial killer, Little Miss Moffat, once brutally ended the lives of several children. While setting in and hoping to right himself, he meets Pru, the daughter of a late writer who penned the story of Moffat and the "Radiant" children she murdered. As Pru and Adam form a friendship, he attempts to discover who he is, and how he can become the man and parent he wishes to be.
At the same time, Pru and Adam both want to block out the darkness of the past. Reality turns, however, for both of them, as the house and nearby places begin to warp. To call The Bones of You a ghost story would do it a grave injustice.
It's much more than that. Those who are familiar with McMahon's writing know he digs deeper than many of his peers for characterization, to the point of creating claustrophobia, due more to the people involved than the settings. The Bones of You is a fine offering from Earthling that truly unsettles the reader, as good horror is supposed to do. Recommended to all fans of good writing. Reviewed by Dave Simms.
Submerged by Thomas Monteleone. Signed limited edition hardcover, deluxe signed lettered edition hardcover. Cemetery Dance has a strong reputation for publishing the highest quality of horror and dark fantasy. Submerged is a thriller in the truest sense of the term; a wild tale of an experimental German submarine carrying a weapon which can end World War II. Kapitaenleutnant Erich Bruckner carries the first narrative as a navy captain who holds no allegiance to the Nazis but is loyal to the sea and his crew.
Bruckner's assignment takes him to the Greenland Ice Shelf where Hitler allegedly has hidden a research facility that belongs in science fiction lore before heading to his deadly final task. Navy man Dex Bucklin, is the second voice. Dex works as a diver for the Deep Six, a group of thrill seeking friends that explore the Chesapeake Bay for treasure and sunken ships.
When Dex finds the near intact remains of a German submarine, U, a vessel that doesn't exist in any war records, he knows his adventure is only beginning. Dex and his crew find that others are seeking the U as well; a group calling themselves The Guild, who may be behind many of the world's major decisions.
Bruckner and Dex Bucklin appear to be cut from the same cloth, but with distinct differences; they are extraordinary characters in a masterful novel. Monteleone has created a thriller that harkens to the best of Clive Cussler and Ken Follett, but with a darker tinge that may suggest to the reader what Lovecraft might have sounded like if he took a turn towards this genre.
Submerged may be the best thriller of the year. Although a limited number of copies are available, Highly recommended for adult lovers of the thriller genre, large public libraries, and collectors. The Immortal Body by William Holloway. Thaddeus Johnson is a cheap hotel drunk with a low level crack habit.
He is also a faith-healer. His gifts have served him well and he gives all the credit to Jesus. One day, he heals three people and something goes horribly wrong; the healed immediately go on killing sprees. The first kills the reverend of the church, and then is hit by a car and killed while fleeing. Sarah Lynn is also the target of Dr.
At long last Liche's efforts to throw the world into a new Dark Age are coming to fruition. Menard must stop Liche by any means necessary. I enjoyed this story of intrigue and psychological horror. The way the author laid out the action using the detectives as the main eye for the reader as the story unfolds was really good.
The tone was great. The mystery built well and kept me reading. Each of the characters had strong identities and was easy to distinguish. The action was well-balanced. The descriptions were creepy, but not over-the-top to the point of being repulsive.
I have not read any of William Holloway's previous works, but will keep him in mind going forward. The Dazzling Darkness by Paula Cappa. Amazon Digital Services, The story is set in Concord, Massachusetts, an area rich in the transcendentalist philosophy of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Enter Detective Balducci, who has ghosts of his own, doing all he can to help.
He even delves into graves with ancient secrets, such as crystal skulls, which emit powers of their own. There are amazing theories of morphogenetic fields of energy in the equation. International intrigue, flashbacks to the early Christian mysticism of St. Helena, and the very nature of death and resurrection all make for a heady tale set against the horrific tension of the search for a missing child. As in her first novel, Night Sea Journey , Paula Cappa draws upon a time when nature, science and religion existed together in an alchemical mix.
Her magical language adds to the otherworldly feel of the book. Seduction twists together three stories of grief and loss. The first is narrated by the author Victor Hugo, desperately unhappy after his daughter dies, and seeking any contact possible through the spirit world, during a retreat to Jersey, in the Channel Islands. Jac is skeptical of the concept of reincarnation, but it turns out that scents can trigger experiences of past lives.
The third story is from one of those past lives, from the point of view of a druid who must make a difficult sacrifice. The stories alternate, skipping from the past to the present and back again. To step into the mind and heart of a strong and well-known personality is a difficult task. In addition to the supernatural events, Rose believably introduces a woman named Fantine, who has a brief affair with Hugo, suggesting that she is the real-life inspiration for the fictional character in Les Miserables.
In spite of modern changes to Jersey, the sense of foreboding found in a gothic novel hovers over the story. Rose does a nice job threading the two stories together. Seduction has suspense, mystery, the supernatural, terror, grief, and difficult moral choices… and it has Victor Hugo. Darkbound by Michaelbrent Collings. Amazon Digital Services, Inc. Six people are waiting for a subway one morning in New York. When the train pulls in, Jim and Adolfa catch an unexpected glimpse of the driver of the train Jim sees a skull and Adolfa sees a demon.
They both quickly convince themselves that what they saw was a trick of the light. Jim gets into the last car, the others who were on the platform with him head toward other cars, but they soon find the only doors that open on this train are the ones in the last car, with Jim.
Then the train leaves the station. At first, all seems normal, although the other passengers tell Jim that the doors of the other cars wouldn't open. Then the lights go out. Then, when the lights come back on, Olik and Jim see dead people in the other cars.
The lights again go out, and this time they stay out and the train begins its journey of terror. Each of the passengers has a secret, and if anyone is to survive, they have to work together to do it. This book was a real thrill ride. I'm not claustrophobic, but I felt that way as I read the book and felt I was in the subway cars with the passengers. I really liked Jim and Adolfa; they were very well written characters.
The book grabs you from the opening pages and doesn't let go. I couldn't stop reading it. Highly recommended for adult readers. William Morrow Imprint of HarperCollins New and used hardcover and paperback; e-book. The themes of the story are the strength of family ties and the lengths people will go to save those they love. When the boys' nanny is found murdered, Charlotte steps up to become their sole caretaker.
Charlotte is also a nocturnal wanderer, and the two frequently meet to talk about their respective losses. One of the story threads involves Charlotte's growing attraction to her employer and vice versa.
One day, Charlotte responds to one of Paul's frequent dreams about his mother by taking the boys on an outing in the forest. Following Paul's map of his dream, they find themselves in The Ending, a mysterious place that hosts a number of strange creatures.
As they enter, they approach the ominous House of Darkling, where they are—shockingly—met by Lily, the boys' supposedly dead mother, and she's not a ghost. As Charlotte and the boys make several visits to Darkling, Charlotte realizes that Lily has made a horrible bargain with Mr.
Whatley, the master of Darkling, in order to be with her sons once more. Most of the creatures in The Ending look like humans, but it is soon obvious that they are wearing human skin over some seriously weird shapes. She is practical and realistic, even though her disturbing dreams plunge her into a nighttime world of hallucinatory fantasy. By the last five chapters, the book becomes a page-turner, with compelling action and escalating suspense driving the plot to the final climactic scene and the ambiguous ending.
Recommended for all libraries. Nominated for this year's Best Novel category at the Bram Stoker Awards, Inheritance brings to the table something that, while not exactly new, is unique in its presentation and delivery. The results show why it was nominated, and propel McKinney much further than his previous efforts, including last year's winner of the famed haunted house trophy, Flesh Eaters.
McKinney is a cop in real life and dives into his reality to write his most personal story yet, with the supernatural weighing in heavily in the absorbing plot. McKinney knows his field and how to write about it without sounding preachy or dumping information onto the pages.
Instead, he creates a very real, visceral world which feels as gritty as the characters and settings between the covers. It might be described as a police procedural, but it is much more, and that would sell it short. Paul Henninger joins the San Antonio PD where the author currently is employed and is looking forward to this new stage in his career. However, Paul's past is dark - pitch dark - and it follows him wherever he goes.
When he was younger, his father, Martin Henninger, practiced black magic and delivered to Paul a dark inheritance that he cannot escape. His adversary is Keith Anderson, who is investigating the case as the department's lead detective and might be too good for his own existence. The closer he digs toward the truth, the closer he approaches his own mortality.
The two main characters, complex as they are, drive Inheritance even more than the pulse-pounding plot, something a procedural rarely does. The sense of dread and tight suspense bring to mind classic Koontz and John Connelly, a mix that could not yield a negative result. Open yourself up and fall into McKinney's Inheritance and learn why it will have a strong chance at earning him a second Stoker.
The author found his own darkness here and embraced it, with tremendous results. Recommended for anyone who loves the supernatural combined with a story grounded in reality. Check out our Bram Stoker Awards page for more information about the awards and the other nominees.
Requiem for Dead Flies by Peter N. Novels about characters returning home to face the demons of their youth have been done to death, especially ones about those on age-old farms with a ghost in residence. I was completely incorrect. This novel displays a maturity in character, setting, and storytelling which belies Dudar's experience.
The story is one of the most unsettling tales this reviewer has read in recent memory. Les, a teacher, and Gordon, a free-spirited college student, are tight, mostly due to a horrific summer they spent at the farm as children with their grandmother. The brothers were sent to the farm to stay with their grandmother after a death in the family, to give their parents time to grieve while allowing the boys to develop. Instead, their grandmother led them into horror, slowly losing her grip on reality while finding something much darker inside.
The story surprises, and, like the best horror, holds most of its power in family and relationships and what people can do to one another while believing their efforts are for the best.
The supernatural does exist in this story, but it is not overbearing, which adds to the slowly building dread. Very much recommended for anyone who craves old-fashioned horror, when the horror accomplished what it set out to do. Dudar has firmly entrenched himself in the new breed in the genre and it will be a treat to see what comes next. The town of Willis, Arizona, is shocked to learn that their friendly mailman has committed suicide. Nothing really bad has ever happened in this small town.
Following the funeral, a new mailman comes to town. At first, all he brings is good news to people. However, as time goes on, people in town get mail that is disturbing, threatening, and downright scary. Neighbor turns against neighbor, and the whole town is on edge.
Teacher Doug Albin and his family try to fight the evil of the mailman. This is a fast paced, well written book, part human horror, and part supernatural; it's also clever commentary on the post office and government workers.
Who wouldn't want to receive notice for winning a contest or from an old friend you hadn't seen in ages? The characters are very likable and you feel the very real fear in some of them as things change in town and some residents get more threatening mail. The author also does a good job of giving the reader a feel for what life in a small town is like.
Bentley Little knows how to scare a reader and keep them involved in the book at the same time. Come Hell or High Water is a self-published urban-historical fantasy trilogy by debut novelist Stephen Morris.
Parts One and Two are out now, with Part Three due for release later this year. The series is set in Prague, and draws on the history, folklore and legends of the area.
Wellspring is the first installment of the trilogy, and tells two parallel stories. The consequences of this curse are revealed as the book progresses. The second story, set in , is that of Magdalena, a young Czech woman who is fascinated by the occult.
But can this assistance be trusted? Wellspring is a rich and compelling read. The unique history of Prague, and a strong knowledge of medieval history, folklore and legend, is woven together with an engaging plot and a good dose of suspense.
However, it is a strong beginning to a trilogy and ends on a powerful cliffhanger. I found this quite an enchanting tale, weaving together ancient Biblical supernaturalism and dream theory, told in dreamy colorful language, with deft characterizations. The Haunted by Bentley Little. Julian and Claire and their two teenagers move into a house in a very strange neighborhood and begin to notice some spooky goings-on: Young James begins to burrow in the ground and eat dirt; young Megan gets salacious texts and starts cutting herself.
Some especially haunting chapters go back through the centuries to reveal the sordid history that forever taints their house. Quite interesting is the idea that historically people have used the supernatural as a crutch to justify human atrocities. Carapace by Allan Watson. The seemingly idyllic village of Carapace has hidden, dark secrets which begin to unfold: Jess is drawn back to her home town against her will just as an ill wind is building and bringing the promise of a bloody apocalypse.
Dark Regions Press Tyrone Banks is a U. Marine serving in Vietnam and a very troubled man. He killed his own brother in a village under fire, while he was high. He killed an innocent woman and her child by throwing a grenade into their hiding place. Out of guilt and shame, he has volunteered for tunnel duty. While tracking the enemy in a dark tunnel, a grenade blows a hole in a wall that opens on Purgatory.
Thinking he has died, Tyrone goes in search of his brother Tommy, hoping to save him from Hell. Tyrone winds up in the depths of Tartarus, where he finds Henrik, who helps Tyrone not only find Tommy, but the woman and child he killed. Determined to save them all, Tyrone leads them all as they race to Heaven before they can be captured by the Scarlet Witch, who is the controller of eternity in Tartarus.
She catches up to the small group, but unexpectedly encounters the Lost Patrol, an almost mythical unit of Marines who disappeared during battle in Vietnam. Can Tyrone save them all and come to terms with his own guilt? Rollo is a fantastic storyteller. The Dark Side of Heaven is very well-written and an interesting take on the afterlife.
Character development is excellent, and the characters are engaging. Tyrone, for all of his faults, is a very sympathetic individual.
A balanced mix or horror and fantasy, The Dark Side of Heaven, while at times brutal, is an entertaining read. Floaters by James Kinsak. Ward gets a frantic phone call on Easter Sunday from his ex-wife, who swears she has seen their dead children, Jimmy and Josh, while visiting the cemetery. Ward meets his ex-wife, Merilee, at the same hotel where he stayed with the boys on their Easter vacation one year ago. The room seems to trigger some memories, and Ward decides to try and find out how they died.
As his memories return, we discover that Ward was having an affair, and Merilee divorced him, going off the deep end. Ward soon learns the truth about what happened that awful Easter when he lost his boys.
Floaters is a creepy short story about a man who does the unthinkable to get what he wants. Well-written, and with memorable characters, the reader discovers just how monstrous a man can be. It is suspenseful with a few surprising twists near the end. Bad Moon Books, Available new paperback and kindle e-book. It is , and Mark is the son of one of the richest men in Texas. He meets a mysterious girl swimming in the lake, and hopes to see her again. Mark is also seeing an old woman in his dreams.
The details of the country club party of really bring it all to life, without bogging anything down. Mark and Ben are very likeable characters, with Ben easily being the more sympathetic of the two, as Lost Girl also touches on the racism of the time.
The Underdwelling by Tim Curran. Boyd, in desperate need of a job, goes to work for the Hobart Mines. While working the graveyard shift, Boyd is given the chance to finally go underground.
Digging in the lowest level of the mine to look for ore, the men stumble upon a shaft that leads into an odd cavern. McNair, a paleobiologist from the local university is called in to help the miners determine if they can continue digging. They find an immense cavern…. Tim Curran is an amazing writer…. Curran has obviously done his research on mining to make the details as realistic as possible. His character development is succinct, and I found myself really liking Boyd and Jurgens.
The Underdwelling, with its deep underground setting, complete with the ever present fear of a cave-in, embodies the epitome of claustrophobia, and it made my skin crawl.
Red Rain by R. New, Used, and E-Book. What about when the shoe is on the other foot? Rowling's adult debut hit stores this fall, and now R. Stine, the original scaremaster, is back, with a twist.
His original audience may now be grown, with kids of their own, but Stine will still frighten them. Lea Sutter, a travel writer who lives for the edge, visits a small island off the coast of South Carolina. A hurricane decimated the town in and is slated to do so again.
The storm hits during a death ritual conducted by the locals. In the aftermath, bodies are strewn everywhere, tears and death raining down upon Lea as she walks the land - along with a true, red precipitation. Out of the rain walks a pair of boys, twins, who appear unharmed but without parents. Lea brings them home without a second thought, although her husband, Mark, and two children, Ira and Elena, rail against the move. Of course, strange events ensue, and life takes a turn for the worse-- the twins are not the attractive, polite, gullible orphans they appear to be.
Stine gives credit where it is due and mentions Village of the Damned, Children of the Damned, and Island of the Damned on the acknowledgments page.
Stine's writing has matured with his readers, although it definitely contains the strengths of his YA writing. Red Rain is a fluid, easy read replete with humor, suspense, a strong sense of setting, and yes, sex. Smart but campy, and entertaining from start to finish , Red Rain is recommended for all of Stine's old fans and will hopefully find plenty of new ones along the way.
Highly recommended for adult collections in public libraries. Homestead by James A. A small town in Texas has six unsolved missing children cases in its past. One of the missing children is the best friend of Kathy, who has begun drawing some disturbing pictures.
