Review: All Your Twisted Secrets

“Welcome to dinner, and again, congratulations on being selected. Now you must do the selecting.”

What do the queen bee, star athlete, valedictorian, stoner, loner, and music geek all have in common? They were all invited to a scholarship dinner, only to discover it’s a trap. Someone has locked them into a room with a bomb, a syringe filled with poison, and a note saying they have an hour to pick someone to kill…or else everyone dies.

Amber Prescott is determined to get her classmates and herself out of the room alive, but that might be easier said than done. No one knows how they’re all connected or who would want them dead.

As they retrace the events over the past year that might have triggered their captor’s ultimatum, it becomes clear that everyone is hiding something.

And with the clock ticking down, confusion turns into fear, and fear morphs into panic as they race to answer the biggest question: Who will they choose to die?

Review: Gossamer Falls

Evil comes in beautiful forms….

Lawrence Karrier is the first to see the beauty while out on his morning run.

A solitary thin cloud drifting down from the mountains and settling into the lake, like nothing he has ever seen before. Later in the day as the local factory empties and the bar fills up, the spectacle of a hundred such clouds against the evening sky beguiles the whole town.

That is until someone is unfortunate enough to touch one.

After a night of horror, the people of Gossamer Falls have to pick up the pieces and try to move on. What will they do with the now rock hard cloud formations strewn all over the place? And what of the white liquid that seems to rush around inside each one? Tourist season is almost upon them and without the dollars that brings the town is doomed.

When townspeople start acting very strange, things begin to get very much worse for everyone.

Review: The Ursulina

I know you’ll never forgive me for what I did. I’m sure you’ve asked yourself that question many times over the years.

Why? Why did I do it?

Well, sweetheart, this is the answer.

I was only twenty-six years old when the monster came back to Black Wolf County. The answers you want begin at Christmas time that year. However, if you really want to understand everything that happened to me—to us—you have to go even further back in my life.

Years back, to the night I met the Ursulina face to face.

So let’s start there.
