The Bird Eater

The Bird Eater

My Review I absolutely loved Seed by this author so I was happy to get this through Kindle First Reads.  It is horror at its finest, with all of the insanity, creepiness, and gore that one would expect. Everything about this book is creepy.  It starts out with a bang with death and insanity within just the […]

Strange Worlds

Strange Worlds

My Review This collection of short stories was an extremely interesting read.  In the warning above, the author states that these stories present thought-provoking moral situations and this was an accurate statement.  There is a very definite school of thought behind these stories, and I am fairly certain that my personal beliefs and views are […]

Paper Dolls

Paper Dolls

My Review Paper Dolls is the second book following Dollhouse, and is easily as good as the first.  I was as lost in the story as I was in the first book.  The cast of characters from the first book return, joined by several new ones.  The story continues on from the end of the first, taking […]

Dollhouse

Dollhouse

My Review I loved this!  It is not often I come across a really well-written, suspenseful, thrilling horror novel written for the young adult demographic.  There is no sex, no drugs, no extreme language… just thrilling, creepy horror that satisfies even my creepy taste as an adult!  I also enjoyed the fact that this book […]

The Killer Poet’s Guide to Immortality

The Killer Poet’s Guide to Immortality

My Review The Killer Poet’s Guide to Immortality is in a word… INSANE!  A.B. Bard is not only the author of this highly unusual book, but is the fictional main character, a man who wants his poetry to be read and loved by all.  So he takes a unique approach to promoting his art, leaving pieces […]

Season of the Macabre

Season of the Macabre

My Review Season of the Macabre is a compilation of three previous volumes of short stories by the author, Cold Comfort Child, A Polite Exchange, and The Rare Gift.  I am a sucker for good macabre fiction, and this book delivered that.  All of the stories had a holiday theme, but definitely not of the “fluffy, […]

Seed

Seed

My Review Seed is an amazing read, full of thrills and suspense and gore, all the things necessary for an fantastic horror novel.  The creepy factor for this book was through the roof, set in the perfectly gothic southern Louisiana .  This isn’t Hollywood horror, but dark and evil, twisting and insidious and eerily subtle.  Jack’s […]

Mama

Mama

My Review Mama is the epitome of a thriller, with lots of twists and turns, monsters, and a healthy amount of gore!  While primarily a horror novel, there was also the underlying story of a family and their struggles in life.  Both stories worked hand in hand and each made the other better and more […]

Half-Inch

Half-Inch

My Review Half-Inch is a rather thought-provoking story of a woman who has been pushed to the limits by her abusive husband.  Despite their impending divorce, Pammy has realized that she will never be free of him and his abusive ways.  For years, obsessed with crime drama TV, she has fantasized about being rid of […]
