DESCRIPTION:

YOU GOT A NEW JOB AT THE ASYLUM IN HADDONFIELD.
YOU BOUGHT A DREAM HOME ON ELM STREET.
YOU TOOK YOUR SUMMER VACATION DOWN AT CRYSTAL LAKE.
So what's next?

In the American mid-west there's a valley nestled between two dark, unscalable mountains. It has no official name, but the locals call it the "Death Head" on account of how it looks on the map... That, and the slew of "accidents" and disappearances that have plagued the valley since the disaster at the old quarry all those years ago.

There's something in the woods there. Something that demands blood and will stop at nothing to get it.

So when Annie and her friends unknowingly picked "The Death Head" for their camping trip, all they saw was the valley's natural beauty. And now, unaware of its terrible history, they find themselves victims of the unstoppable force that resides there and will be picked off one by one and slaughtered like cattle.

DEATH HEAD VALLEY is unabashedly written to feel like a novelization of an Eighties-esque slasher movie that was never made. The kills come thick and fast and will leave you reeling. This is extreme horror and not for the faint hearted.

DESCRIPTION:

For years scientists had warned about the real possibility of a global strike from outer space: a global killer. Mathematicians had calculated that once in approximately every sixty million years the Earth has been hit by a meteorite of such proportions it drastically changes our climate, plunging the world into a decade of nuclear winters.

In a post-apocalyptic world in which the sun has been replaced by near-darkness, the few remaining survivors have been forced underground to protect themselves from the evil predators that roam the surface above. Something else is out there, in the darkness, humanlike, but without a soul. Something that speaks intelligently, plans with cunning meticulousness and, just like its cousin, this new breed likes to hunt. Not the pitiful, scrawny livestock and wild animals that cling to life on the barren surface above.

No, this new breed hunts for something far more rewarding - US!

After decades of inactivity, the old hunter Brockmann is called back into action, when he faces something he had considered impossible. An inhuman creature of unnatural origin has appeared on a murder scene. Realizing his assumption all supernatural had died out was wrong, he races against time to stop the creature as he must team up with Simon, a young man who has lost his girlfriend and who has no idea it was Brockmann who was responsible for her death.

The first book of The Nocturne Society drags readers right into the world of the long disbanded secret society, where the supernatural inhabitants of our world are considered to belong extinct. But are they really gone?

From the author of The Watchful Dead and Dark House of Dreams, comes this highly anticipated collection of 16 spellbinding tales of supernatural suspense. Among them:

• A merchant is kidnapped on a moonlit trail and brought to a sinister lair where he undergoes a hideous transformation at the hands of a hooded figure known only as "The Craftsman."

• A cavalry general leads a charge that traps him in perilous face-to-face combat with a savage foe. But all is not as it appears, and the general soon learns that "His Greatest Battle" may not be with an enemy composed of flesh and blood.

• A dazzling temptress stands between an aging woman and her happiness, and only a dark deed can rectify the situation. But how much does vengeance truly cost when it comes with the otherworldly assistance of "The Toad Woman?"

And there's much more. The sins of her parents are visited on an innocent girl. A mysterious fog settles on a city, leaving its inhabitants questioning whether they aren't all living false lives. A stranger knocks on a door in the dead of night and the simple twisting of a knob changes a family's fortunes forever.

All these people lived average lives, until one day they found their realities turned upside down, and recorded by a demonic scribe in an ancient tome known as The Vermilion Book of the Macabre.

REVIEW HIGHLIGHTS FROM AMAZON UK
'This novel is surely for those with the strongest hearts and psyche. Well written and composed such as I lived the tale and envisioned the horrors as no other. It is probably the most powerful book of its kind, the message within loud and clear. I have enjoyed every word of it although it has shaken me to the core.'
'Oh my word! Never in a million years did I think I could find another author to rock my world after James Herbert's death, but Sarah you do it with bells on!'
'You will absolutely live Eva's story as you follow her into the darkness. Honestly, wait til you meat Earl Hart - one of the most repulsive characters in modern fiction. This is an author at the height of her powers...'

DESCRIPTION:

When Heaven screws up... All hell breaks loose.

God; omniscient creator, terrible golfer, and disgruntled CEO of Heaven, asks for little in life. He wants nothing more than for his private elevator to be repaired, ten minutes of peace and quiet to eat Girl Scout cookies, and an eighteen-hole round with the recently deceased British Prime Minister. So when a broken database causes his records department to send The Grim Reaper a list of souls not ready for reaping, his once peaceful life quickly begins to unravel.

Furious with Heaven's ineptitude and the problems the disruption is causing his daily routine, The Grim Reaper retaliates with an unprecedented response. He skips the next reaping on his list and as a result, causes an army of bloodthirsty zombie-demons to be unleashed on the peaceful town of Oceanview, Arizona.

After a few days of the apocalypse running unchecked and a rapidly increasing body count, Heaven learns the location of the events occurring below and determines divine intervention is required. When the Oceanview survivors mistakenly kill the angels sent down to help, Heaven has no to choice but to call in the big guns, and God himself is forced to visit Earth for the first time, making an already dire situation much, much worse.

DESCRIPTION:

"CARRION COMFORT is one of the three greatest horror novels of the 20th century. Simple as that." --Stephen King

"Epic in scale and scope but intimately disturbing, CARRION COMFORT spans the ages to rewrite history and tug at the very fabric of reality. A nightmarish chronicle of predator and prey that will shatter your world view forever. A true classic." --Guillermo del Toro

"CARRION COMFORT is one of the scariest books ever written. Whenever I get the question asked Who's your favorite author? my answer is always Dan Simmons." --James Rollins
"One of the few major reinventions of the vampire concept, on a par with Jack Finney's Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Richard Matheson's I Am Legend, and Stephen King's Salem's Lot. --David Morrell

THE PAST... Caught behind the lines of Hitler's Final Solution, Saul Laski is one of the multitudes destined to die in the notorious Chelmno extermination camp. Until he rises to meet his fate and finds himself face to face with an evil far older, and far greater, than the Nazi's themselves…

THE PRESENT... Compelled by the encounter to survive at all costs, so begins a journey that for Saul will span decades and cross continents, plunging into the darkest corners of 20th century history to reveal a secret society of beings who may often exist behind the world's most horrible and violent events. Killing from a distance, and by darkly manipulative proxy, they are people with the psychic ability to 'use' humans: read their minds, subjugate them to their wills, experience through their senses, feed off their emotions, force them to acts of unspeakable aggression. Each year, three of the most powerful of this hidden order meet to discuss their ongoing campaign of induced bloodshed and deliberate destruction. But this reunion, something will go terribly wrong. Saul's quest is about to reach its elusive object, drawing hunter and hunted alike into a struggle that will plumb the depths of mankind's attraction to violence, and determine the future of the world itself…
