Dread Nation by Justina Ireland is an alternate historical fiction where the Civil War ended when the dead rose hungry. Narrated by Bahni Turpin I quickly found myself caught up in this tale. A clever, sassy, kick-ass heroine and fantastic world-building left me itching for book two.
I grabbed Witch Hunter: Into the Outside by J.Z. Foster after his mom and author Lori Foster shared his book on Facebook. With the promise of witches, horror, and paranormal creatures I was excited to dive in. Richard Fitcher, a nerd and witch hunter who is a non-believer stumbles into a nightmare and pulled me along with him.
Please welcome Sophia Rose as she shares her thoughts on The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell. This historical suspense laced with horror sounds perfect for a late night read!
Zero Day by Ezekiel Boone is the final book in the Hatching series. The series has taken us through an apocalyptic disaster involving spiders. Told from multiple perspectives from around the world, we get the third-person POV accounts of man’s reactions and attempts to survive. While we didn’t get as much time with the eight-legged monsters, Boone delivered an intense climax.
I bought The Fireman audiobook, by Joe Hill last year after devouring NOS42A and then it sat as my TBR pile demanded my attention. From the very first chapter, Hill grabbed me. This brilliant original story reminded me of early Stephen King and Mira Grant’s Parasite series. If you haven’t tried Hill I encourage you to do so.
I loved NOS42A which was my first Joe Hill book, so I was excited at the chance to review Strange Weather a collection of four short stories on audiobook. With a stellar cast of narrators, I quickly became caught up in these haunting and disturbing tales.
*Shivers* Thank you, Mira Grant, for the nightmares. May I have another? Into the Drowning Deep is the first novel in the Rolling in the Deep series touching on mythology as it spins science fiction, and fantasy into a brilliant, terrifying oceanic horror story.
When I received Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant for review, I knew it was time to grab my Kindle and read the prequel Rolling in the Deep. I absolutely love Grants blend of horror, science fiction, and fantasy. Rolling in the Deep was a dark, freaky, twisted tale on mermaids that sets up the first full-length book perfectly.
