DESCRIPTION:

I try to be terrible whenever I can.

Rayleigh Angelica Thorn owns her own dark, cryptic bookstore in downtown Denver, The Broken Spine. It's single occupant, Junky, a black cat with an attitude, roams its aisles. Her best friend, Lacey, gives her all the companionship she needs, and her parents have just introduced her to the perfect gentleman.

But it's all about to come crashing down.

A message on her phone unearths a torrent of memories. Ghostly visitations from a young girl who look exactly like her haunt her lonely evenings at home.

Rayleigh's mental state is in the balance; she drinks too much, and on top of everything else, she might be falling in love. But in order to save herself and those around her, she must go home again. Only with the onslaught of memories, and her fragile state of mind, Rayleigh Thorn isn't sure she's up for the task.

DESCRIPTION:

“True Detective” meets H.P. Lovecraft in this chilling novel of murder, mystery, and
slow-mounting dread from acclaimed author Mary SanGiovanni . . .

 
It begins with a freak snowstorm in May. Hit hardest is the rural town of Colby, Connecticut. Schools and businesses are closed, powerlines are down, and police detective Jack Glazier has found a body in the snow. It appears to be the victim of a bizarre ritual murder. It won’t be the last. As the snow piles up, so do the sacrifices. Cut off from the rest of the world, Glazier teams up with an occult crime specialist to uncover a secret society hiding in their midst.
 
The gods they worship are unthinkable. The powers they summon are unstoppable. And the things they will do to the good people of Colby are utterly, horribly unspeakable…

DESCRIPTION:

Some things are far scarier than flying!

Will Bonnie survive the ghost storm headed her way? After months of work and focused therapy to overcome her fear of flying, Bonnie Overton is ready to make the flight back home to Rachel Island. It’s been too long since she’s seen her sister, Amy, and with a niece on the way, it is a trip she has to make if she wants to keep her promise to her mother. Bonnie will soon find out that her phobia is nothing compared to what she and the other passengers on Flight 1199 will experience when the airplane falls prey to a swarm of evil ghosts. Will fellow passenger Heath Blake, a man with a dark family secret, be able to save her from the onslaught of hauntings headed their way?

Is Bonnie’s fear of flying irrational, or is it a lifelong premonition of a frightening fate that she cannot escape? Can she survive ghosts on a plane?

DESCRIPTION:

Grant is handsome, charismatic, and charming. He’s also a horror novelist who’s had moderate success in his craft. The only thing more attractive than the man is the fact that he actually wants to meet Amy’s son, Bailey.

Bailey is independent for his age, as competent at caring for his own daily needs as most children twice his age, but overweight and ailed by a lack of personal confidence. His reservations about meeting a new man are evident in his resistance of his mother’s demands, but soon he warms to the charming writer. Bailey sees an opportunity to gain not only a father, but a friend.

Months later, after Bailey and his mother have taken up residence with this new man, odd behaviors begin to emerge as Grant researches the basis for his new novel. It’s a nonfiction manuscript, based on ghost stories originating at a local bar with a reputation for appearances from the other side. It’s a good book with a good story behind it, but it’s taking Grant down a path of hatred, violence, and ultimate destruction.

When Amy begins helping Grant with his editing, she too falls victim to the effects of prose, Bailey begins to receive a more brutal version of parenting. Now he’s hungry, in pain, and afraid with little or no help in sight as the story being written in his home stops mirroring the events at a remote bar, and becomes the new terrorizing story of his life.

DESCRIPTION:

His limbs had been flung wide as if he’d been trying to embrace the night or had been crushed by it; his eyes had been wide and pale as ice, and he might have been smiling or gritting his teeth.

Ben Stirling is a quiet, young boy with a morbid past.

He has run away from his aunt’s house where he lives in search of the real truth about what happened to his grandfather, and his family…

As he struggles to fit in both at home with his strict aunt and at school with the bullies, he eventually meets the similarly reclusive young boy, Dominic.

In Dominic, Ben finds someone else who is enamoured with the world of books. Together they foster each other’s imaginations and provide the friendship they both need.

In his adult years, Ben inherits the ancestral home. He and his family decide to move in… unaware of the strange stories concerning those who stray too close to the nearby woods at night.

Ben is increasingly drawn to Sterling Forest — extensive pinewoods planted around the ancient oak grove where his great-grandfather was found dead so many years before.

Edward Sterling had previously been exploring the icy wastes of the far north, where shamans were said to practise ancient rituals to keep the midnight sun shining over their desolate land.

Found naked and snowblind in this distant wilderness, he had been returned to his wife… but died soon afterwards.

Now, three generations later, Ben unwittingly sets loose an awesome power, and soon the entire countryside falls into the grip of ice and blizzards.

He is soon ready for what he’d been awaiting his whole life…

DESCRIPTION:

On an ordinary night in a quiet, upper-middle-class neighborhood, eighth-grade classmates Chloe Danvers and Spencer Genovese sneak out of their homes to investigate a weird clicking noise. They watch as a shadowy figure slinks through their street, dashes around a house, and disappears.

The next morning, they learn that the Hoffman family has been murdered.

In their efforts to find out what happened, Chloe and Spencer discover that no one else can see or hear the malevolent being they glimpsed. Only a shared medical condition enables them to sense its presence. Their illness provides a measure of protection from the creature, but not for long. It becomes aware of them and begins taunting them in a series of disturbing events. Now they must determine its weakness … and stop it before it goes after its next victims.
