If yLiving on the Gulf Coast and having done plenty of deep sea fishing, I’ve seen some of the creatures that patrol beneath the surface of the ocean.
If you think sharks are the only thing to worry about, think again. Ryan Lockwood has brought us some truly terrifying creatures. They’re real, not fictional or supernatural, and I would hope to never run into them.
The author wastes no time dropping you into the horrific waters, setting his beasts loose to feed. Once they have you on their radar, there’s no escaping them.
I love horror, and especially stories that feature monsters, real or imagined. This one fed that passion and I couldn’t stop reading until the author revealed his ending.
Oh yeah. I ate this up. Just as voraciously as these creatures did.
They say that vengeance comes at a price. One man sure learns that the hard way when he calls something up from hell to to his bidding. And so do hisThey say that vengeance comes at a price. One man sure learns that the hard way when he calls something up from hell to to his bidding. And so do his targets.
This would be the perfect campfire tale. The author sets the tone. Gives you the plot. Then scares the crap out of ya.
As this is a short story, there’s not a lot of character development. Not much is needed. You get the picture pretty quick. It’s all over in about 15 minutes. If you like small bites of good old fashioned horror, you”ll enjoy this one.
There’s also a bonus short story included in the eBook.
I love cheese. Macaroni & cheese. Lasagna. Tacos. All cheesy good. But, best of all….Pizza! I could eat pizza every day. Imagine not being able to eat your favorite food. Not being able to eat anything with gluten in it. Talk about being miserable.
One man has taken all he can take. He’s denied himself all of his favorite foods for more years than he cares to remember. He wants his pizza. And he’s gonna have it. Will it kill him? Yes. Does he still want it? Yes.
Anthony sucked me in right from the beginning. He chose a fascinating way to tell this story. I was squirming in no time. It’s a hard one to swallow. A really good horror story that chews you up and spits you out.
And one more Bonus short story included in this eBook.
A Haunted House Tale
They must have seen the movies, read the books. Yet these five friends think it won’t happen to them.
Clearly something will and does.
The legend is, if you survive the night, you receive untold riches.
The temptation lures them in.
There’s safety in numbers, right?
Then it all goes south and everyone is scrambling to get out.
I never get tired of these stories. I was thinking of Scream, the movie, where they go over all of the rules of what not to do.
If these characters had any sense, they’d know not to go in that house, but then I wouldn’t have had such fun reading what happens to them.

What can I say about this sixth book in the Onyx Webb series? It’s hard without including spoilers this far into it.
I freakin loved this one! I’m learWhat can I say about this sixth book in the Onyx Webb series? It’s hard without including spoilers this far into it.
I freakin loved this one! I’m learning so much more about the character’s, past and present. I couldn’t read fast enough.
Someone comes back from the brink of death. Several people die. And a new character is introduced. Newt is quite fascinating.
Onyx Webb is a very complex character. Still not sure what to make of her. She can be endearing. Now and then I feel sorry for her. And then there’s times when she scares the crap out of me.
And something bad is coming. Wish I could tell you more. Take a close look in a mirror. Wait for it. You just might see.
You’d think, with the story being told from so many points of view, and several different time periods, that it would be confusing, the reading would get bogged down. Not so. As I tore through the book, I couldn’t wait to see what would happen, but didn’t want it to end. If you’ve ever loved a story, I’m sure you know what I mean.
This is a series that’s meant to be read in order, so be sure to start at the beginning. I hope you give it a go. You’ll become addicted, just like me.

But, I did. I went and got my 21 year old son and we sat down to read it together. He experienced plenty of bullying in school and expressed how lucky he would have been to have this book when he was younger. We took turns reading it out loud and got into a couple of giggling fits whenever one of us said the word Poop. A fun character is Poop. Look at that cover. Isn't he kind of cute? How creative of the author to use something people whisper about to engage young readers on a touchy subject.

This was such a beautiful yet turbulent love story.
One fateful night changes two lives forever. Avery enters the ocean excited to catch the next wave This was such a beautiful yet turbulent love story.
One fateful night changes two lives forever. Avery enters the ocean excited to catch the next wave. Kai enters the ocean to rescue a drowning girl. She survives. he doesn’t.
Now Avery is stuck. She can’t move past her guilt. I felt so sad for Avery. She’s consumed with survivor’s guilt. Her friends feel she should be over it. Her boyfriend is all out of understanding. If only she could see the boys face.
And Kai. Yes, he’s dead. He now has another purpose beyond life. But rules won’t let him help Avery. If only he could tell her that it’s okay. That he’s okay.
These two character’s seemed destined to be together. I thought long and hard about how the author could make that happen. Then I continued listening to the story to find out. As I listened, I forgot about focusing on the ending as I was swept away by the adversities these two had to face.
I enjoyed this as an audible. Dana Dae as Avery and Zachary Webber as Kai each tell their character’s point of view in the story, doing a nice job of developing their personalities. As the story deepens they also do a great job of expressing emotions without it feeling forced. I’m glad I chose this format to enjoy the book.
It was a pleasant surprise that I was so moved by this story. I really connected with Avery and Kai and hoped they would have a happy ever after.
Whether you choose to read this book or listen to it, I’m sure you’ll be swept away like I was.
