Night Shoot by David Sodergren Book Review

If you like a fun slasher film you are going to love Night Shoot!



Night Shoot by David SodergrenReleased May 2019

Dark Fiction  |  Goodreads  |  Amazon

Source: Received for Review Consideration A group of desperate student filmmakers break into Crawford Manor for an unauthorized night shoot. They have no choice. Their lead actress has quit. They’re out of time. They’re out of money.

They’re out of luck.

For Crawford Manor has a past that won’t stay dead, and the crew are about to come face-to-face with the hideous secret that stalks the halls.

Will anyone survive…the NIGHT SHOOT?

A delirious homage to the slasher movies of the 1980s, Night Shoot delivers page after page of white-knuckle terror.
My 2 Cents For Free! Night Shoot is a wild slasher flick in novel form and it is a ton of fun with plenty of dreadful characters who couldn’t die fast enough!


Elspeth is our main character. In order to receive her degree in film & photography she has to complete a project with a group of mostly idi…

Source: Received for Review Consideration What does carrion taste like? Andi has to know. The vultures circling outside her home taunt and invite her to come understand the secrets hiding in their banquet of decay. Fascination morphs into an obsessive need to know what the vultures know. Andi turns to Dr. Fawning, but even the therapist cannot help her comprehend the secrets she’s buried beneath anger-induced blackouts.

Her girlfriend, Luna, tries to help Andi battle her inner darkness and infatuation with the vultures. However, the desire to taste dead flesh, to stitch together wings of her own and become one with the flock sends Andi down a twisted, unforgivable path. Once she understands the secrets the vultures conceal, she must decide between abandoning the birds of prey or risk turning her loved ones into nothing more than meals to be devoured.

Bunny by Mona Awad Book Review

Have you read Bunny?!



Bunny by Mona AwadReleased June 11, 2019

Dark Fiction  |  Goodreads  |  Amazon

Source: Received for Review Consideration
The Vegetarian meets Heathers in this darkly funny, seductively strange novel about a lonely graduate student drawn into a clique of rich girls who seem to move and speak as one

"We were just these innocent girls in the night trying to make something beautiful. We nearly died. We very nearly did, didn't we?"

Samantha Heather Mackey couldn't be more of an outsider in her small, highly selective MFA program at New England's Warren University. A scholarship student who prefers the company of her dark imagination to that of most people, she is utterly repelled by the rest of her fiction writing cohort--a clique of unbearably twee rich girls who call each other "Bunny," and are often found entangled in a group hug so tight they become one.

But everything changes when Samantha receives an invitation to the Bunnies' fabled…

One for the Road by Wesley Southard Book Review

Here's a 4 1/2 star read for my fellow weirdos!



One for the Road by Wesley SouthardReleased June 15, 2019

Dark Fiction  |  Goodreads  |  Amazon

Source: Received for Review Consideration
Only one more show and heavy metal guitarist Spencer Hesston can finally quit Rot in Hell. No more touring, no more fighting, and no more unwanted advances from the lead singer’s girlfriend. But instead of waking up the next day in their Midwestern hometown, the band finds themselves dazed and confused in an abandoned settlement in the middle of the desert, with no idea of how they got there.

Things are done a little differently out here: the trees have perverse urges, the spiders have human fingers, and every time they step outside the town transforms into a new hellish nightmare.

In this town anything is possible, except making it out in one piece…

Deadite Press is proud to present a new novella from Wesley Southard, a work of surreal horror sure to please fans of SILENT HILL, JACOB'S LADDER, and LO…

Source: Received for Review Consideration Tess spends her days picking through scrap yards and arc-welding her strange, jagged metal sculptures. Bibi is a dancer, who pushes her hardened body beyond endurance, sculpting every movement and every muscle, basking in the warmth of the pain...Then the two women come together, and together they create a new underground art form of metal and flesh, a dance of whirling bodies and whirling sculpture, a dance of pain and blood...

Breaking the boundaries of art, Tess and Bibi are plunged deeper and deeper into a realm of obsession - until the lust for pain grows beyond all their control...
My 2 Cents For Free!I originally read Skin when it was first released in 1993 by Dell Abyssback when they had their horror line. I remember stalking my local bookstores for their titles and now those bookstores are long gone. I …

Dark Fiction  |  Goodreads  |  Amazon

Source: Received for Review Consideration Burdened by old age and secrets that could topple an empire, Maren Glover is hounded by slinking beasts and monstrous adversaries.

As Samhain slips into darkness, Maren navigates vengeful witches, uncouth vampires, costumed children, a raging werewolf, an unhinged creator goddess, and relentlessly bad humor.

With predators of legend vying to collect the bounty on her head, Maren must trust in luck, sass, a youth-obsessed ex, and centuries of preparation to overcome brute force and blunt the sharpest of fangs.

Her bag of tricks running low, the odds of Maren's survival wane. Then again, she does have night worms on her side...
