I love Rhiannon Frater’s writing and have owned the As the World Dies series forever. But have I read them? Nope. So when I dusted off the #FraterfestRAT in October, I knew it was time to beginning this series. Zombies, survival, and friendships made this post-apocalyptic tale a page-turner.
Kingdom of Needle and Bone by Mira Grant offered a relevant, thought-provoking tale with bone-chilling realism. Despite being a novella, the tale was rich with detail and held me captive. Ms. Grant I need more….
Each year for the #HoHoHo Readathon I try to read a horror story or thriller as my winter selection. Let Me In was an Audible daily deal. Murder, suspense and paranormal woo-woo await you in this page-turner.
I used to think only good things came in heart-shaped boxes. Things like chocolates or jewelry. That all changed when I listened to Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill during the Fraterfest Readathon earlier this year. Nope, I will forever hesitate when I open those boxes.
Deadmarsh Fey by Melika Dannese Lux is the first novel in the dark fantasy series, Dwellers of Darkness, Children of Light. The story takes place in a manor surrounded by wood in nineteenth century England. Ghosts, demons, fae, dragons and treachery await you in this twisted fantasy with elements of Victorian horror and lore.
The Outsider by Stephen King was an intense and creeptastic tale that renewed my faith in King, The audiobook narrated by Will Patton, drew me in as a man with a rock-solid alibi finds himself accused of a heinous crime.
Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire is the second story in the fantasy series Wayward Children. Imagine my surprise when the story was narrated by the author. Now, this can be a good or downright terrible. I am delighted to say it was magical.
