Review: Holidays Are Hell Anthology

Review: Holidays Are Hell Anthology

December 21, 2009 Review 1

Book Description: This holiday, spend quality time with family and loved ones—living and dead . . . There’s no place like home for the horrordays—unless you’d prefer a romantic midnight walk through a ghost-infested graveyard . . . or a haunted house candlelight dinner with the sexy vampire of your dreams.

Liu, or a super-powered Thanksgiving with the phenomenal Vicki Pettersson, one thing… Read more »

But now… Read more »

Review: Soul Catcher by Leigh Bridger

November 25, 2009 Review 2

Book Description: From the gothic eccentricity of Asheville, North Carolina, to the terrifying recesses of the Appalachian wilderness, from modern demonology to ancient Cherokee mythology, Soul Catcher follows the tormented journey of folk artist Livia Belane, who has been stalked through many lives by a sadistic and vengeful demon.  Livia and her loved ones, including her frontier-era soulmate and husband, Ian, a Soul Hunter, have never beaten the demon before.  Now, in this life, it’s found them again.   Review: If I hadn’t been sent this book for review, I would not have finished it and that was before reaching… Read more »
