Something is terribly wrong in Detroit.
When Chris and Sarah bought an abandoned library to renovate and live in, they expected to be on the ground floor of the revival of Detroit. But unbeknownst to them, the city is about to fall. The devastation begins with a single woman who mysteriously tears off her clothing and starts walking the perimeter of an empty lot. Within minutes, hundreds of disparate people inexplicably join her to form a giant human circle slowly revolving like a hurricane of flesh. Moved by inexorable forces, they twitch and spasm, contorting their naked bodies in a primordial death dance. They’re oblivious to everything, even the unfortunate souls who fall beneath their feet.
Bewildered citizens and authorities are desperate to know what’s causing the bizarre event… at least until it starts to rain.
Chris and Sarah abruptly find themselves trapped in a forsaken city. To survive, they must evade the horrifying illness, find food and shelter in a suddenly primitive world… and have a battle plan for when the circle stops spinning…
The Dead Circle has 342 pages in print.

From the award-winning author of the Outlaw King series comes another harrowing adventure in the grand tradition of Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Charlaine Harris.

Robin Martine has come a long way.
She's not your usual college-age girl. More often than not, Robin's washing a load of gory clothes at the laundromat, or down at the lake throwing hatchets at pumpkins. She lives in an old van, collects swords, and dyes her mohawk blue.

Also, she kills witches for a living on YouTube.
You see, Robin's life was turned upside down by those hideous banshees from Hell. She spent high-school in a psych ward, drugged out of her head for telling the cops her mother Annie was murdered with magic. Magic from a witch named Marilyn Cutty.

After a 3-year warpath across America, she's come home to end Cutty for good.
But she'll have to battle hog-monsters, a city full of raving maniacs, and a killer henchman called the "Serpent" if she wants to end the coven's reign over the town of Blackfield once and for all.

This novel is the most unique book I have read in years.

Books are filled with familiar stories. There are some stories that come around so often, we have a name for them; tropes. When we read, we look for these tropes. We expect them. We have our favorites and the ones that we dislike. Bloggers write up long diatribes about their favorites or their most hated tropes. Tropes aren’t necessarily bad or good, they just are. Malus Domestica completely blows every known trope out of the water. Trust me, you have never read a book like this before.

This book defies genre. I really want to say that it’s Urban Fantasy. It’s a girl fighting witches. That seems like a slam dunk. However, there is so much more to it. This book is DARK. If you love Leigh Bardugo or V.E. Schwab, then you have a slight idea of what you are in for with this book. I absolutely love a book with high stakes, where I’m not sure the main character will survive. This book could also be termed as horror. It’s scary. Witches are scary. Reading this book there were several moments I had to put the book down and remind myself that I was safe in my bed, that everything was fine and there was no one there with me. That way I could plunge back into reading and worry about Robin, Joel or Kenway.

It’s hard for me to decide who is my favorite character. Robin is so kickass. She’s a mohawk sporting, panel van driving, witch hunting, youtube star. Her draw is in her personality and her abilities rather than her physical beauty. She’s prickly and distrustful and I wish I could be her best friend. Kenway is an artist. He’s sweet and loving and the heart of the story. He’s all the emotion that Robin never shows. He’s also fiercely protective with the training to back it up. If a book that some categorize as a horror novel can also be a love story, this one manages it gracefully.

Malus Domestica is a terrifying paranormal romance. It’s a beautiful horror story. It’s totally different and you will love it.

I will never look at cats the same way again.

Review: S.A. Hunt’s Short Stories

Review: S.A. Hunt’s Short Stories

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I like books. The longer the book, the better. I especially like series. I’ve said that time and again. Logically, you would think that short stories are the opposite of what I want to be reading and normally, that’s true. I don’t seek out short stories to read. However, there is one important exception to this rule. Horror. I love scary stories. There is something magical about the way that a horror novelist can create chills up and down your spine in just a few sentences. Don’t believe me? Check out these 2 sentence scary stories from Reddit. These are sure to change your mind. I would also recommend you read any of the following short stories. each and every one will renew your faith in a horror author’s ability to scare the snot out of you in a minimum of pages. I’ve been a huge fan of S.A. Hunt since I read the first book of his Outlaw King series. Each of these stories shows what a twisted imagination lives in his genius brain.   This one starts out completely innocently. I loved the way the story built to the end. This is a perfect example of why horror stories can be perfect even if they are short. I definitely felt sorry for the robot, which might not have been the […]
