No one, not even experienced ghost hunters and mediums, will enter Pitmon House.

Its dark, abandoned halls hold inhuman secrets, and the spirits inside are violent and uncontrollable. Exploring its rooms is an easy way to get killed. So Pitmon House sits -- locked up, abandoned, and silent.

Eliza's younger brother is struck down by an infection that has turned him from a normal, vibrant teenager into a raving lunatic, requiring constant sedation. She quickly realizes the medical community can't help him; she will have to use her dormant "gift" to save his life. Although Eliza is frustrated that her father died before teaching her how to use the gift, with practice she starts to see things that normal people cannot. Thanks to her co-worker Rachel's encouragement, Eliza becomes convinced that she can save her brother.

When the clues point to Pitmon House, even Rachel has second thoughts. Eliza must find the courage within herself to enter the frightening and perilous mansion, even if it puts everyone's lives at risk.

'Equals the best of James Clavell.' The Daily Telegraph

Edwin's diary brings us in uncomfortable proximity to the true horror of his gradual, yet chillingly certain metamorphosis into a vampire.

Will Edwin surrender to a life of terror? Can the outcast ever exist among humans again?

One thing is for sure: The life of Edwin Underhill will never be the same again...

DESCRIPTION:

Blythe Valley has a secret that it wishes no one discovers. This collection of stories reveals what it wants to hide.

The night Atticus decided to take his life, a Fallen Angel came to him to help him with the grief he felt from losing his wife, giving him new hope for the future. Traveling across the country with his flock to find the promised land, his followers have no idea where some have gone. While Katrina is suspicious, she doesn't speak of their leader's strange actions until years later after he raped her and all but her and her husband, Griff, tragically perish.

Decades pass, and Heather and her friends hike into the woods to find the fabled town of Blythe, where she discovers a strange box that soon brings all of her dreams to life. Her husband, Shane, becomes unsure of her late-night escapades and begins to remember their past. When he discovers the diary that led them to Blythe years before, he learns an unexpected history.

Aletha and Pete live in her grandfather's house, which seems to have more than them living in it. Strange dreams start to plague her after opening the old Steamer trunk that she found in the attic, and soon, their lives are turned upside down. When Amilcar shows himself to Aletha, and she discovers Pete's corpse on the floor at the bottom of the stairs, the unease that she's felt for months explodes, and she leaves the house to escape. A priest takes it upon himself to help her rid the home of the Fallen Angel to perish at its feet.

Ezra Thompson has had dealings with the Carrington Collective in the past. When he and his son, Eli, visit Waldgrave to investigate, they quickly learn that Amilcar has taken another to do its bidding. With little time to prepare, they face off with the Fallen Angel to save the town and its residents from its reign of terror.

DESCRIPTION:

Seth Kesler is thrilled to discover that the defunct C-U Journal is making a comeback. He loves newspapers and believes it is his--and society's--civic duty to read them. But something is deeply off about the new publication in Champaign-Urbana, starting with the oily paper-hawker he dubs the Newspaperman, who hand-sells the C-U Journal for a mere dime on a downtown street corner. Seth's delight soon turns to dismay when he sees the bizarre stories printed as fact and mysterious goings-on at the once-esteemed paper's main office. He makes it his goal to put a stop to the whole shady operation, even though it means battling news titan Richard W. Fields, a multimillionaire who represents the worst of an exploitive corporate world.

The Newspaperman is a smart horror/mystery that will keep readers intrigued right up until the gut-punch ending.

"I read this book over several weeks, early mornings before my family woke, and I loved every moment, savoring sentences, taking screenshots of passages to revisit, and shaking my head in admiration. The writing is incredibly beautiful, rhythmic, and precise, and Gordon's use of objects laden with emotion is masterful--watch for her teacup, rope, and red crayon; watch her weave and stuff and loop those red hairs, how they come back, how you'll find them in your own pockets. This is horror in love with life, and an author in love with language. You will encounter scenes you won't forget. Be ready."

Adam hears a rumor of a Haunted Island off the Coast of Maine, where "if someone wants it bad enough" they could be reunited with a lost loved one. In his desperate attempt to connect with the ghost of his four-and-a half year old son, he decides to go there, to Dagger Island, desperate to apologize to, or be condemned by, his young son. Adam is not sure what he deserves or even which of these he wants more. While staying in a crumbling old boarding house, he becomes involved with a beautiful and manipulative ghost who has spent 60 years tormenting the now elderly man who was her lover, and ultimately her murderer. The three of them create a "Menage-a-Guilt" as they all come to terms with what it is that ties them so emotionally to their memories and their very "existence". Beautiful, Frightening, and Silent is a poetic fever dream of grief, love, and the terrifying ways that obsession can change who we are.

When a deadly virus sweeps the country, Vivian sets out for California in hopes of seeing the daughter she gave up for adoption. Then her car breaks down and she's faced with a choice: give up or accept a ride from redneck brothers, Angus and Axl. Vivian knows getting in the car with strangers is a risk, but with time running out, she's willing to do whatever it takes to reach her daughter.

The virus is spreading, and by the time the group makes it to California, most of the population has already been wiped out. When the dead start coming back, Vivian and the others realize that no electricity or running water are the least of their concerns. Now Vivian must learn how to be a mom under the most frightening circumstances, cope with Angus's aggressive mood swings, and sort out her growing attraction to his brooding younger brother, Axl.

While searching for a safe place to go, the group meets a pompous billionaire who may be the answer to all their problems. Trusting him means going into the middle of the Mojave Desert and possibly risking their lives, but with the streets overrun and nowhere else to turn, he might be their only chance for survival...

Shya's no stranger to events of the paranormal sort – the women in her family have passed down their strange gifts for as long as they know. But the early loss of her mother has meant far less guidance for Shya than they'd both hoped for, and now she finds herself floundering as she faces darker elements of the spirit world.
She's grateful for her friends in The Seers group… at least they take her seriously, and even provide insight she couldn't have gleaned herself, thanks to their incredible collection of supernatural gifts. But none of them are prepared for the fight that looms ahead, and it's not only a possessed child's life that hangs in the balance – the demon wants Shya most of all.

Will The Seers succeed in saving both souls when Shya's gifts are turned to work against her?

Join Shya and The Seers on an adventure that will have you in its grips and leave you wanting more.

The town of Willow Tree has a secret …

The massive Weeping Willow towers over the landscape, its leafy tendrils an enormous canopy that shields the town and its residents from the outside world. It makes Willow Tree into a world all its own … and its residents into a family like no other.

Eunice Pembry ran the town like a loving matriarch … and like any mother, she sometimes had to discipline her children.

Colonel Davis loved only one thing more than the town of Willow Tree … and she made him do detestable things to prove that love.

Annabel Jeffers would make the ultimate sacrifice for the town … but there was always one more thing to give.

Jess Granger, stringer for the internet rag The Paranormal Investigator, would stumble onto their secret, and it would change her life … but not all change is good.

As high and as wide as the tree goes, the roots go even deeper, down into the soil of the 150 year old cemetery beneath. What it does down there is the real secret of Willow Tree.

It is a secret worth dying for … but will dying be enough?
