Halloween

by

Janice Gable Bashman

I love Halloween. It’s the ultimate search for thrills and chills. When we went trick-or-treating the Scary House was the house we always saved for last, letting our excitement and anxiety build all night long. The lights were always off, but we knew someone was home. Ghosts and skeletons and body parts littered the lawn. Glow in the dark eyes watched us from all angles. The eeriness only added to our fun. We crept along the tree-lined path, hoping something would scare us to death and praying at the same that it wouldn’t. Would someone jump out from behind a tree? Would shrieks rent the air? Would a blast of cold air hit us from behind? Would something burst from the ground and grab our legs? That dark and scary walk to the front door felt like it took forever, but we wouldn’t miss it for anything.

In my novel PREDATOR, my protagonist Bree Sunderland experiences several instances like these at key moments when everything changes in her life. They happen at a dark Irish bog when a swishing noise becomes louder and louder and comes closer and closer. They happen outside a laboratory when “Everything seemed so different in the dark…In the shadows, trees and plants moved in the breeze, as if waiting for the right moment to leap from the ground, run after Bree, and snatch her into a death trap.” They happen in her own home when “every muscle in her body screamed at her to run, to flee, to get out of there as fast as possible while she still could….” And they happen in the woods when Bree senses others coming out of the darkness.

It’s the suspense, and the fear that comes with it, that motivate us to take action. We either freeze, run away, or fight. Because we know the fear that we experience during Halloween isn’t real, we seek it out and embrace it. But Bree’s fear is all too real. And she must fight if she wants to survive and save those she loves.

 Predator by Janice Gable Bashman

  

Description:

The hunt is on! Sixteen-year-old Bree Sunderland must inject herself with an untested version of her father’s gene therapy to become a werewolf in order to stop a corrupt group of mercenaries from creating a team of unstoppable lycanthrope soldiers.

When Bree went with her scientist father to Ireland, she thought it would be a vacation to study bog bodies. She never expected to fall in love with a mysterious young Irishman and certainly never expected to become the kind of monster her father said only existed in nightmares.
Dr. Sunderland discovers that lycanthropy was not a supernatural curse but rather a genetic mutation. When they return home, her dad continues his research, but the military wants to turn that research into a bio weapons program and rogue soldiers want to steal the research to turn themselves into unstoppable killing machines. Bree’s boyfriend Liam surprises her with a visit to the United States, but there are darker surprises in store for both of them.

As evil forces hunt those she loves, Bree must become an even more dangerous hunter to save them all. Predator gives the werewolf legend a couple of new spins by introducing the Benandanti (an actual folkloric belief that certain families of Italy and Livonia were werewolves who fought against evil), as well as a modern scientific approach to mutation and the science of transgenics.

She will become the thing she hates, to protect those she loves!
