Review: Dark Hollows: An absolutely gripping psychological thriller with a breathtaking twist

Dark Hollows: An absolutely gripping psychological thriller with a breathtaking twist Dark Hollows: An absolutely gripping psychological thriller with a breathtaking twist by Steve Frech
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dark Hollows by Steve Frech was a quick read for me. I enjoyed the description of his town and wonderful life with his coffee shop, dog, rental place for extra money. It all sounded so wonderful. Picture perfect small town to enjoy life in.

At first I thought he was haunted by some supernatural being from his past. As more details about his past came to light, so many things had to be figured out. The sabotage at his cafe with the cockroaches almost had me freaked totally out. Supernatural or planned, that was intense.

Lots of intense moments, heart rate increasing because of not knowing what to expect next. Is it a ghost, is it a psycho? What has happened to his dog ??

Awesome read. Full of action and suspense.

The Night Weaver BOOK GIVEAWAY





THE NIGHT WEAVER
by Monique Snyman
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: Vesuvian Books
Release date: October 15th







SHADOW GROVE IS A PERFECTLY PLEASANT TOWN ...

Shadow Grove isn't a typical town. Bad things happen here. Children disappear, one after the other, and nobody is doing anything about it. Parents don't grieve, missing posters don't line the streets, and the sheriff seems unconcerned.

Seventeen-year-old Rachel Cleary lives on the outskirts of Shadow Grove, next to the creepy forest everyone pretends doesn't exist. Usually the forest is filled with an eerie calm, an unmistakable graveyard solemnity. But the trees have started whispering, forgotten creatures are stirring, and the nights feel darker than ever.

Something is stalking the residents of Shadow Grove, changing them into brain-dead caricatures of themselves. It's up to Rachel to stop the devouring of her hometown before all is destroyed and everyone she loves is forever lost.

Praise for The Night Weaver



“Stephen King’s It meets Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight in Snyman’s frightening story of horror and fantasy woven together to create a delectable tale of the macabre … romance and action. Snyman’s storytelling will have people lining up for the next book.” ~ School Library Journal

Teaser

      Whispers
ride on the wind. Distant childlike voices, gleeful, as if they’re on a
playground, swirl around the crone. The soft voices become louder until it
sounds like the children are playing right beneath Rachel’s bedroom window. The
Black Annis’ cloak suddenly shoots open and spreads out farther. Impossibly, it
somehow fills Rachel’s entire line of vision, revealing a collection of
ghostlike faces stacked one upon the other and side by side. Chubby-cheeked
cherubs avert their hollow gazes to stare at the Black Annis, forced smiles
twisting their features horrendously. The cloak continues unfurling to the
sides and the tally keeps climbing as new faces appear. Even if Rachel wanted
to study each collected child, in search of the missing children of Shadow
Grove, there are simply too many to count.

Release Date: August 29, 2019

The Beast is dead.
Long live the Beast.

After narrowly escaping death at the hands of the Judiciary, Ari found unexpected allies in the depths of the sea. With the mermaids and the Beast beside her, she chased her enemies through the ocean, only to discover a deadlier threat than she could have imagined waiting in the sunken ruins of a place that had been lost a thousand years before.

And in one moment, everything changed.

Now, the Beast is gone. The mermaid world is in tatters. Ancient magic has turned Ari’s worst enemy into a force unrivaled on land and sea, a monster more terrible than the Beast had ever been. Ari’s friends and family are in mortal danger, and Chloe and the mermaids are the only hope to save the wizards from total annihilation.

In the war against the Judiciary, the mermaids and wizards must join together or else the entire world will fall.

Review: The Girl from Rawblood

The Girl from Rawblood The Girl from Rawblood by Catriona Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. The time jumping would confuse me at times, but it was necessary to bring the story about in such a flooring way. Excellent ending, and what a ride along the way. Still haven’t anything to replace the feeling I had when I was reading this. Woooosh.
