The Eighth by Stephanie Wytovich [4.5 stars]

From the Description
Rhea Harmon is a living target for the Devil as she possesses the power to detect one’s deadliest sin at first glance. Intended to be used as a weapon of war, the Devil sends Paimon, his right-hand man and top collector, to claim her soul and bring her to him in Hell.
But the Devil isn’t the only one who is interested in Rhea.
When Paimon arrives to collect his payment, he’s immediately taken with her and the resemblance she bears to his late-wife, Marissa. He falls in love with the mortal girl whose soul he is supposed to claim, and instead vows to protect her, thereby severing his allegiance to the Devil and sealing his fate as a traitor.
Consumed by rage and fear, Paimon and Arazel, the Devil’s blood slave and ring leader to the circle of Lust, flee Hell in an attempt to save Rhea, but are instead forced to confront their pasts and their presents as they reevaluate the definition of sin and punishment. So what happens when a demon has to confront his demons, when Paimon has to turn to something darker, something more sinister for help?
After centuries of living in exile, banned from their home and their right to rule, The Seven, the keepers of the deadly sins, are only too happy to answer his call, and if Paimon thought it was dangerous to make a deal with the Devil, then he had no idea what it meant to be blessed by the creators of sin.

The Eighth is an intense tale of love, betrayal, damnation and regret. Paimon's story draws you in with lyrical language and lush imagery that is both beautiful and disturbing. This story is definitely not safe for the faint of heart or the weak of stomach, immersing you in a world of pain and darkness. Paimon and Arazel are compelling characters to follow as they struggle to get out of Hell and rescue Rhea from the Devil. The Seven are also intriguing as they plot to overthrow the Devil. From the brutal beginning to the twisted ending this book kept me on the edge of my seat. I highly recommend this engrossing 4.5 star read.

Dream Woods by Patrick Lacey [4.5 stars]

From the Description
Follow your screams…

When Vince Carter takes a shortcut to work he notices a billboard that nearly sends him into an oncoming van.

The ad is for Dream Woods, New England’s answer to Disney World. It closed decades ago, but now that it’s back in business, Vince is eager to take his whole family, hoping the magic he remembers will save his failing marriage.

His wife, Audra, isn’t so sure. She’s heard the rumors of why the place closed. Murder. Sacrifice. Torture. But those are just urban legends. Surely there’s nothing evil about a family tourist attraction.

The Carters are about to discover that the park’s employees aren’t concerned with their guests’ enjoyment. They’re interested in something else. Something much more sinister.

Welcome to Scream Woods!

Dream Woods is a fast paced terror ride that you may not escape from. It has an old school horror feel to it that made it a blast to read. Vince is believable as a man who desperately wants to keep his family together. Audra annoyed me at first, she really needed to grow up and realize that life is what you make it. Hoping some time away as a family will give them a fresh start, Vince takes them to Dream Woods, the place he was happiest as a kid. Dream Woods is also known as Scream Woods because of the legends of murder and mystery surrounding it. The employees and attractions in Dream Woods seem to be just a bit off, a bit predatory, giving it a sinister atmosphere that sends a frisson of fear up your spine. The action starts off slow that builds to an exciting race to escape the park and the creatures that are hunting Vince, Audra and their kids. The ending left me hoping that we might get to visit 'Scream Woods' again. I highly recommend this 4.5 star read.

Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse by Jack Strange [4.5 stars]

From the Description
Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse is the story of the dead celebrity chef Floyd Rampant, who rises from his grave aiming to create a zombie army of chefs who will rule the world, using the human species as the main ingredient in their cordon bleu meals.

It is dark, original, and so funny it should carry a government health warning.

It is a gourmet feast, an unmissable read, and a black and poignant joke. Part horror story, part political and social satire, it gives the reader a fast-paced entrée of dread, a main course of panic and a dessert of distress.

CCZA, as it's known for short, has a cast of unforgettable characters, most of whom meet with gruesome ends. The action begins in Croydon, moves to London, and reaches its explosive climax in the author’s home town of Huddersfield.

This smart, witty and profound modern day classic works on many levels.

I received a copy of this book for review purposes. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this novel.
Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse is absolutely hilarious! This book is a brilliant mash up of foodie TV, zombie horror, and Monte Python type comedy with a little something thrown in for the car show fans. It had me laughing out loud at the antics of Floyd Rampant, Henderson the Cat, as well as the heroes trying to stop the apocalypse from happening. As a fan of cooking and car shows I thought I recognized the inspiration for some of the characters which made CCZA even better. Jack Strange has breathed new life into a world over-run with zombie horror. I highly recommend this fast paced and gleefully irreverent 4.5 star horror comedy.

About the Author
The reclusive author Jack Strange is an unusual fellow. His exact age is unknown. Those who've dared to ask him have never survived long enough to divulge the answer.
His writing is dark and comedic. He has a biting wit, an acid tongue, and some say hoofed feet. With his leaning towards the undead, he's a natural for the world of horror and gore. Jack signed for Kensington Gore publishing in early 2016 in blood, no-one is sure whose. His first dark, comedic horror novel, "Celebrity Chef Zombie apocalypse" was published on May 28th 2016. It's a tale of true love, zombies, sex, cooking, cannibalism, depraved sex, and chasseur sauce.
Jack's done too many jobs to mention. He could tell you, but then he'd have to kill you. Not because he worked for the secret services as a hit man or an executioner. It's just that he gets bored very easily.
He has a wife, poor woman, and two lovely daughters who can't be named for legal reasons. Oh, and besides all that, Jack Strange lives in Huddersfield West Yorkshire. Need we say more?

"A riotous series of blood-drenched, pan-seared deglazed screwball antics...two thumbs-up" - The Horror Fiction Review

"The creation of Floyd Rampant ... is quite simply a work of genius.
...special mention too should be given to the creation of Henderson, the cat turned into a vicious cat-zombie. I know, I know, the concept sounds ludicrous but believe me it works! The much neglected sub genre of Feline zombies finally gets the poster boy that its been crying out for with the rightfully creative ways in which it dispatches it's human victims. Inspired writing." - 5D Sci-fi, Fantasy and Horror blog

"...a pretty brisk read.. helped by what I'd like to call the 'Dan Brown' style of chapters... giving the reader moments to recover from some of the shocking, and at times twistedly hilarious, events of the story..." - Fred Casden's Basement blog

"You quickly empathize with characters that are in my opinion ingeniously named. For example a zombie named Floyd Rampant... Throw in some dubious unsavoury characters, a policewoman who does well not to vomit, a reverend, the P.M. and a plethora of other characters who may or may not survive and you have a book that is easy to fall into and a narrative that will make you hoot." - The Parenting Jungle blog

"Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse has some amazingly strong characters, even if some don't last as long as you'd like!...A Very enjoyable book.... 5 out of 5 gold stars. Thank you for reinvigorating a tired genre and giving me such a good read Jack!" - The Horror Nation Blogspot

awesome of the funniest books I've ever read" - Zombie Art Blogspot

...pacy, stomach-churning ... can be read in one sitting - but others may prefer this nightmarish tale in bite-size chunks." - The Law Society Gazette

Harvest Night by D.A. Madigan [4 stars]

From the Description
READER'S ADVISORY: This novel contains scenes that sane readers will find disturbing, including incredibly graphic descriptions of horrific violence and unimaginably depraved sexual acts. Obviously, this is a work exclusively intended for mature audiences.

They moved to Redhaven because of its folksy charm, its old fashioned small town feel, its safe schools and its nonexistent crime rate.

They moved to Redhaven because the town's locally owned bank is so reasonable and generous with low interest mortgages and small business start up loans.

They moved to Redhaven because everyone there is so friendly, so neighborly, so pleasant and helpful and kind. Because Redhaven seems like the kind of place where you don't have to lock your doors at night, where you can raise your kids in peace and quiet.

They moved to Redhaven because it seemed to be so wholesome... so safe.

THEY MADE A HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE MISTAKE... they won't live to regret...
Publication Date: April 10, 2014
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Publication Length: 672 pages
Harvest Night is a disturbingly graphic, stomach churning and utterly terrifying nightmare. To say that this book is not for the faint of heart would be an understatement. This book has sex, violence, cannibalism, torture, rape, incest, child abuse (of the worst kind!), bestiality, murder, MKULTRA (if you don't know what that is go ahead and look it up, I'll wait), with a few vampires and werewolves thrown in for good measure. The story is about the cult of Satanists that founded and run the small town of Redhaven with an iron fist and the small group of FBI agents determined to put a stop to their depraved reign of terror. The cast of characters is huge and made up of mostly deplorable people doing horrific things. The dark tone is reminiscent of The Purge while the writing reminded me of something by Jack Ketchum or one of William Johnstone's demon books. Admitting that I liked this book makes me feel dirty, like I need to go shower off the filth it left on my soul. This book is not for everyone but if your not squeamish and enjoy extreme horror then you might want to give this 4 star read a try.

Renovation by Sara Brooke [3 stars]

From the Description


It all started with a leaky roof.

Or did it?

Something bad is happening in the small picturesque town of Oak Shade, Florida.

The Brennier family has just moved into their new home, and they are excited about the prospect of a new life. A new beginning.

But things don't always go as planned.

Almost immediately, their beautiful home starts to fall into disrepair. And there's that strange thing happening in the attic…

Their call for help to a local repair company quickly becomes a different cry for help.

And their lives begin to crumble as the situation gets stranger and more disruptive.

It soon becomes clear that all is not as it seems, and a simple renovation could mean the deconstruction of their lives.

Renovation is reminiscent of This House Possessed (1981) with the addition of demons. A mostly happy family moves to a small town to start over only to find that their dream home isn't quite what it seems (queue the creepy music) luckily for them a renovation company just happens to be driving by,,, unluckily they have their own agenda. I had a hard time getting into this story, the characters just never became real for me. Some of the scares were effective, the shower scene with Janice was absolutely horrific for me. This book was just mediocre for me, entertaining enough to finish but I wouldn't reread it. A middle of the road 3 star read.

"Sara Brooke has written a nice Gothic horror story that has twinges of Ira Levin’s The Stepford Wives with a twist of Bentley Little, but on a much darker, sordid level." – HellNotes on Kransen House


"This novel is taut, well-plotted, and well-characterized…" – Mallory Heart Reviews on Still Lake


"…a body horror reminiscent of Eli Roth’s movie from 2002 – ‘Cabin Fever.’ Unlike Roth’s movie, the characters are actually very likeable, so much so in fact that I felt gutted for them at the end. They are a naïve bunch, young, dumb and full of…!" –Adrian Shotbolt on Gardens of Babylon

Revenge Is A Dish, which makes a beach side bar-b-que stomach turning, The Only Good Lawyer, where a dirty lawyer learns that there's a price for defending criminals, and For The Birds, which has a bird with unusual dietary habits, were my three favorite tales. These short treasures are sure to disturb and delight horror fans whether you like your scares to be atmospheric or gruesome. I highly recommend this 5 star collection.

About the Author
In his head, Jason Parent lives in many places, but in the real world, he calls New England his home. The region offers an abundance of settings for his writing and many wonderful places in which to write them. He currently resides in Southeastern Massachusetts with his cuddly corgi named Calypso.
In a prior life, Jason spent most of his time in front of a judge . . . as a civil litigator. When he finally tired of Latin phrases no one knew how to pronounce and explaining to people that real lawsuits are not started, tried and finalized within the 60-minute timeframe they see on TV (it’s harassing the witness; no one throws vicious woodland creatures at them), he traded in his cheap suits for flip flops and designer stubble. The flops got repossessed the next day, and he’s back in the legal field . . . sorta. But that’s another story.
When he’s not working, Jason likes to kayak, catch a movie, travel any place that will let him enter, and play just about any sport (except that ball tied to the pole thing where you basically just whack the ball until it twists in a knot or takes somebody’s head off – he misses the appeal). And read and write, of course. He does that too sometimes.
Please visit the author on Facebook, Twitter, and GoodReads or at his WEBSITE for information regarding upcoming events or releases, or if you have any questions or comments for him.

"From the eerie opening tale to the grisly closer, and all of the wonderfully mean-spirited tales in-between, Wrathbone is a winner!" --Jeff Strand, author of Dead Clown Barbeque
"This is horror of the mind at it's very best . . . Very dark, very atmospheric, very powerful writing. Excellent stuff . . . Only the second time ever that I have given every story in a collection five stars. This one is going to be hard to beat." --Nev Murray at Confessions of a Reviewer and Scream Magazine
"Wrathbone and Other Stories is a hard-hitting collection that you can completely immerse yourself in. The title story is a beautifully written period tale of love and tragedy." --Mercedes M. Yardley, author of the Bram Stoker Award winner Little Dead Red.
"Jason Parent channels the darkness. Wrathbone and Other Stories offers a glimpse into the twisted mind of a gifted storyteller, whose characters are every bit as vivid as the demons that haunt them. Parent's definitely an author to watch!" --Michael McBride, author of Subterrestrial and Burial Ground
"An elegantly written novella of madness, murder, and demons, Jason Parent's Wrathbone reads like Edgar Allan Poe's take on 'Jacob's Ladder.'" --Adam Howe, author of Tijuana Donkey Showdown, Die Dog or Eat the Hatchet, and Black Cat Mojo

Hunter Of The Dead by Stephen Kozeniewski [5 stars]

From the Description
Someone has begun targeting vampires.

Vampire leaders of the thirteen Houses attribute the string of recent losses to over-zealous vampire hunters. Only Cicatrice, the most ancient and powerful vampire in the world, suspects that the semi-legendary Hunter of the Dead may be the real culprit.

Carter Price, a vampire hunter who despises the way his profession is becoming centralized and corporatized, begins to suspect the Hunter of the Dead is back, too – and no longer distinguishing between vampires and mortals. Against his better judgment, Price agrees to work with Cicatrice.

The uneasy allies attempt to uncover the truth about the Hunter, while a vampire civil war brews in the background. But perhaps most difficult of all, they must contend with their new apprentices, who seem to be falling in love with each other against every rule of man and monster…
Publication Date: August 15, 2016
Publisher: Sinister Grin Press
Publication Length: 314 pages
Hunter Of The Dead is a throwback to when vampires were monsters, not sparkly emo teenagers full of angst. This book is chock full of bloody, violent action and enough witty dialogue to keep me glued to the pages with a maniacal grin on my face until I finished the last page. I love Nico and Price. Price is a grizzled veteran vampire hunter who prefers to go it alone. Nico is perfect as the apprentice that just found out the hard way that vampires are real. The vampires are full of traitorous back-stabbing villains and even the seemingly good guys aren't trustworthy. Both The Hunter and The Damned were awesomely creepy, boogeymen for vampires and hunters alike. I highly recommend this fun filled rollercoaster ride. A solid 5 star read.

About the Author
Stephen Kozeniewski (pronounced: "causin' ooze key") lives with his wife and two cats in Pennsylvania, the birthplace of the modern zombie. He was born to the soothing strains of "Boogie With Stu" even though The Who are far superior to Zep, for reasons that he doesn’t even really want to get into right now.
During his time as a Field Artillery officer, he served for three years in Oklahoma and one in Iraq, where due to what he assumes was a clerical error, he was awarded the Bronze Star. The depiction of addiction in his fiction is strongly informed by the three years he spent working at a substance abuse clinic, an experience which also ensures that he employs strict moderation when enjoying the occasional highball of Old Crow.
He is also a classically trained linguist, which sounds much more impressive than saying his bachelor’s degree is in German.
You can find Stephen on his website, Manuscripts Burn, and on Facebook, Twitter or GoodReads

"I don’t know how he does it, but every one of Kozeniewski’s books offers something totally unique and compelling to the reader." – Sharon Stevenson, author of the RAISED and GALLOWS series
