The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly

Minnow Bly has learned some hard lessons in the short seventeen years that make up her life. She’s learned that parts of you that you take for granted can be taken away, your family can betray you in the blink of an eye, and she’s learned that the power of belief can be the most dangerous thing of all.


Something is in the woods surrounding the quiet town the Rook’s family has settled into. Something ancient. Something relentless. And it is oh so very hungry...

The Merciless

Four girls in the basement of an abandoned house, another bound and gagged on the dirty concrete floor. It’s okay, though. She’s going to be just fine, the other girls are here to help her. They’re here to perform the exorcism she so desperately needs. They’ve got all the tools they require: bell, book, candle… knife.


Fiend; with a plot that sounds like the start of a bad joke, is an unexpected treat and a fresh take on a horror sub-genre that many of the most avid enthusiasts have grown weary of. Two meth addicts come out of a rundown house after a week-long bender to find that the zombie apocalypse had come and gone without them. Out of speed and long out of time to prepare, they have just two goals; stay alive and stay high.

Through the Woods

You’re walking through the woods, there’s no one around. Out of the corner of your eye you spot him- no, not Shia LeBeouf. It’s your brother whom you murdered last night, and he’s so happy to see you.


Scenic mountain ranges, rustic bed and breakfasts overlooking peaceful pastures; that’s what a great many little towns dotting the US are renowned for. At first glance, no one would assume the little village of Buckaroo, Oregon would be any different. Except what Buckaroo is known for, what it’s infamous for, are serial killers.


Parasitology is the newest series written by zombie novel veteran Mira Grant. With the second book having been released last November, and the third and final novel releasing on November of this year, I figured I’d just go ahead and review it now so that the rest of you can suffer in anticipation with me. Mwa ha ha.

The Demonata

The Demonata is a series written by popular YA author Darren Shan. The series ended with the publication of Hell’s Heroes in 2009, but for fans of horror who aren’t familiar with Darren Shan, he is a gift and this series is a great popcorn (quick and easy) read.

Lockwood & Co

Lockwood & Co is a new series from the author who brought us the Bartimaeus trilogy and you could call it the British answer to Shutter. Set similarly in a world that has become overrun with restless spirits, children and teens gifted with the ability to sense these aggravated apparitions are employed by agencies designed to contain and remove them. Sometimes with séances. Sometimes with salt. Sometimes with swords.


Shutter is the debut novel of author Courtney Alameda. If you ever played the cult video game hit Fatal Frame then this is the book you didn’t know that you were waiting for.
