Cassie and her best friend, Laney, are intrigued by the mysterious and enjoy ghost hunting at the Gray Lady Cemetery. A dark carnival comes to town bringing with it enticing characters who immediately lure the teens. Cassie is suspicious and can't figure out if the carnies are men or boys. Laney doesn't care and falls head over heels into the promise of adventure and danger. When the same shady characters from the carnival show up as newly enrolled students at the high school soon after, Cassie and Laney's friendship begins to unravel. Even worse, Cassie feels like her mind is unraveling. She hears voices—voices from the trees. Either Cassie is going crazy or something is very, very wrong.
Cassie must uncover the mystery of where the men have come from and why they want her friends. Not only does her sanity depend on it, but so does Laney's life.

Night Terrors is your childhood fears on steroids. If Slender man gives you the chills, then Tim Miller's Shadow man will make you want to never turn out the lights. Not that it matters, once Shadow man has chosen you there is no escape from his posse of minion children eagerly awaiting to feast on flesh.

If you are checking out Tim Miller for the first time, this is the book to read....more

Beware the sharks in Dirty Water.

MaxineClaude is on a much needed vacation in the Caribbean when he first sees Maxine. From that moment on, life as he knows it is completely erased. Maxine captures his every desire & fantasy. She steals his every waking moment, his every thought to the point where reality shifts like a distorted mirror.
