Review: The Damned

This was such a creepy book. It stopped short of full on horror, but the premise of the book was very creepy and there were a few scenes that made you want to turn on all the lights. The idea that a near death experience could result in you bringing something back to life with you is terrifying. The way Danny brought back his completely psychopathic twin sister’s ghost was so scary. Not just because it’s a malevolent ghost, but her back story and her behaviour were just so creepy. Not only was this the story of Danny battling for […]

Review: For We Are Many

I am just so confused after reading this book. I have so many questions. And not in a good way. The premise of the book sounded really good, but the execution fell sadly short. It just seemed so disjointed and fast and incomplete. Without giving spoilers, it’s hard to articulate all my questions, but there is a group of people that just appear in the story, and they apparently become important, but I don’t know where they came from or really how they are. Fletcher’s story started off quite good. He’s obviously different and has some kind of ability that […]

Review: Conduits

This was a very dark story with both elements of psychological and paranormal horror. Mara is a very confused girl that self-mutilates and begins to blurs reality with imagination. Her delusions seem like paranormal elements, and the reader is left wondering if they are real, or if everything was in Mara’s head. This was a quick, yet very creepy read. The journey into Mara’s descent is the focus, not the cause or the end result. It’s a haunting story that strikes a perfect balance between a dark plot and lyrical prose. I usually prefer to know clearly whether a story […]

Review: Her Vampyrrhic Heart

This was a scary story, with more horror than paranormal. It featured an interesting Norse mythology twist on regular vampires. I found this twist contributed quite a bit to the scary aspect as the vampires were more monsters than human. While reading the story, I found myself wanting to learn more about the Beck family and their history. The bits that were included were intriguing and exciting. Something about the family legends and origins pulled at me more than the current story of Tom and Nicola. The end was satisfying, and yet also felt a bit like a letdown. There […]

Review: The Twelve

After loving the first book, I was very excited and nervous about this second book. I really wanted this book to match the excitement and thrill of the first, and was worried that it would suffer the dreaded 2nd book curse. Happily, this book was a great addition to the series. The book started with a story from the beginning of the plague that was parallel to the first book. It eventually caught up to ending of the first book and went on from there. The timeline was a bit confusing at times as I tried to match the events […]

Review: Dark Halo

This was an intense and very dark horror story. Don’t let the moody paranormal angel cover fool you, this is horror story where people die. And not just the bad guys! I was so upset over some of the events that happened, but no way will I ruin it for you but revealing the victims. More than a paranormal adventure, this isn’t the religious rant that some angel stories become. There are more religious aspects than I was expecting, but more than anything, this story was about survival. It was suspenseful and scary and a lot of fun to read. […]
