Michelle Muto | 3 comments THE BOOK OF LOST SOULS

The Book of Lost Souls
When teen witch Ivy MacTavish changes a lizard into her date for a Halloween dance, everything turns to chaos. And when no one is powerful enough to transform him back except Ivy, it sparks the rumor: Like father, like daughter. Ivy has heard it all before - that her father, who left when she was seven – was involved with the darkest of magic.

Making the rumors worse, someone uses an evil spell book to bring back two of history's most nefarious killers. Ivy's got a simple plan to set things right: find the real dark spell caster, steal the book, and reverse the spell. No problem! But she’ll have to deal with something more dangerous than murderous spirits that want her and her friends dead: the school’s resident bad boy and hotter-than-brimstone demon, Nick Marcelli. Nick’s offering Ivy more than his help with recovering the missing book – he’s offering her a way to ditch her scaly reputation as a lizard-lover. Demons are about as hard to handle as black magic, and as Ivy soon discovers, it’s going to take more than a lot of luck and a little charm if she wants to survive long enough to clear her status as a dark witch, get a warm-blooded boyfriend, and have her former date back to eating meal worms before the week’s end.

Rosalie Warren (RosalieWarren) | 3 comments Coping with Chloe Coping with Chloe by Rosalie Warren

Anna and Chloe are twins. They share everything - from secrets to clothes; from fending off the school bully to dealing with their parents' separation. Even Chloe's terrible accident hasn't split them apart. After all, twins have a special bond....

But Anna is beginning to realise that being inseparable isn't always easy. Especially when no one else seems to understand that Chloe isn't really gone; no one apart from the dashing Joe that is, who, inconveniently, seems to like both sisters.

Told through the eyes and mind of 12 year-old Anna, this is a powerful novel exploring teenage life and the grieving process.

16 great reviews on Amazon so far!

Young adult horror.
Don't Fear the Reaper

Grief-stricken by the murder of her twin, Keely Morrison is convinced suicide is her ticket to eternal peace and a chance to reunite with her sister. When Keely succeeds in taking her own life, she discovers death isn’t at all what she expected. Instead, she’s trapped in a netherworld on Earth and her only hope for reconnecting with her sister and navigating the afterlife is a bounty-hunting reaper and a sardonic, possibly unscrupulous, demon. But when the demon offers Keely her greatest temptation—revenge on her sister's murderer—she must uncover his motives and determine who she can trust. Because, as Keely soon learns, both reaper and demon are keeping secrets and she fears the worst is true—that her every decision will change how, and with whom, she spends eternity.

Ann Herrick (AnnH) | 13 comments What secrets are revealed when six teens are Snowed in Together at school for a weekend?

Wes and his best buds, Tony and Jeff, have enough brain power to fuel the entire sophomore class, but when it comes to their social lives, they are totally inept. So they volunteer to organize the art room on Saturday knowing three certain cheerleaders will be there for practice. Trouble is, none of the guys can come up with a plan to take advantage of the opportunity to be the only six students in the building.

Then, thanks to a freak snowstorm, they're snowed in, which isn't so bad when the girls of their horniest dreams are there, too. Maybe it could give Wes the chance to make his fantasies about Ellyce come true! However, the last thing Wes expects is to be caught in a game that forces everyone to share his deepest secret. He fears if Ellyce discovers the story of his alcoholic father and abandonment by his mother, she'll never want anything to do with him. She's the girl of his dreams, but can he resist signals Tiffany keeps sending him if Ellyce shuts him out? Who ends up with whom?

Brad knows this better than most. One day he is trying to get up the courage to talk to the girl he worships, the next he is diagnosed with cancer. Brad thinks battling the disease will be the toughest task of his short life.

He’s wrong.

The pain and fear of chemotherapy is overshadowed by what is brewing in the bedroom down the hallway. His eight-year old brother, Dylan, is in too deep. The once happy-go-lucky youngster has witnessed Brad lying on the bathroom floor vomiting and has since suffered through sleepless nights filled with a recurring graphic nightmare. Filled with rage after an altercation at school he turns on his older brother, and with a hard right to the nose, sends him to the hospital.

When Brad blames himself for Dylan’s state of mind, he focuses on returning their relationship to normal, and the effort pays off. By the end of summer their bond is stronger than ever, but something is weighing on Brad’s mind. Unsure of where to turn, he confides in Dylan. What he shares is a secret so disturbing it will lead to the end of one of their lives.

Take two amateur ghost-hunters. Put them in the arid New Mexican desert. Add Navajo legends, terrifying monsters and a dash of saucy sexual tension and you've got Red Fox, book #2 in the beloved Experiment in Terror Series.

In the for­got­ten town of Red Fox, a Navajo cou­ple is tor­tured by things unseen and by motives unknown. Wild ani­mals slink through their house in the dark, a bar­rage of stones pound their roof nightly, and muti­lated sheep car­casses are turn­ing up on their prop­erty. Armed with a cam­era and just enough to go on, Perry and Dex travel to the des­o­late locale, hop­ing to film the super­nat­ural occur­rences and add cred­i­bil­ity to their flail­ing web­cast. Only their show has a lot more work­ing against them than just grow­ing pains. Tested by dubi­ous ranch hands, a ghost from Dex’s past, and shapeshift­ing decep­tion, the ama­teur ghost hunters must learn to trust each other in order to fight the most ancient of myths…or die trying

Praise for Red Fox:

"As suspenseful as the paranormal activity they are dealing with is, that has nothing on the sexual suspense between Dex and Perry. The magnetism between them is bananas." - Bookish Babes

"I have never read a book like this and I would definitely read it again!" - Beckoned by Books

"This new adventure that Karina Halle wrote for Perry and Dex was packed full of suspense and action. It was completely unexpected." - Pawing Through Books

"It's like music playing on a black movie screen. The music is supposed to clue you in to the scene, but on its own it doesn't make much sense."

Jade Lauderdale suffers from a dissociative disorder that makes her depressed, insecure, distracted, and wondering if she'll ever be "normal" again. Not to mention she has a difficult time remembering several years of her past, a symptom which her therapist, Ms. Orowitz, believes is very important to why she may have developed a dissociative disorder in the first place. She asks Jade to keep a journal as a memory exercise in hopes that it will help her unlock the missing pieces.

To her surprise, the journal seems to be having an effect, but not as much as her friendship with Austin, who she meets at a therapist-approved painting class. He's the first friend she's made in months, and she's determined to learn how to trust him in spite of her illness's hold on her psyche.

As the puzzle pieces of Jade's memories begin to assemble, she makes interesting discoveries about herself and her past, some of which are much more difficult to face than she ever expected. Will she be strong enough to unlock the ultimate memory from her past that will allow her to move forward?

Free Thursday and Friday, February 19 and 20th, on Amazon.

TRINITY STOOD frozen in place, the Tracker towering over her. It was at least ten-foot tall, standing on its back legs. Her breath came in short gasps, hands trembling at her sides. She should have picked up another stick. It wouldn’t have been much but it would have been something. The Guards hollered in the distance, closer now. A minute ago they were her enemy; now, they were her only chance to survive. One of the Tracker’s ears tipped back toward the sound, but its yellow eyes never left her.

In a world where class distinction means the difference between imprisonment and freedom and even life and death, not being on the Harvest List is the only way to guarantee survival for a young Producer.

Sixteen year old Trinity knows her name will be on the List. Only the finest examples of teenage Producers are assigned mates and get to stay in the encampment to breed, and that is not her. She isn’t even full-blooded Producer. Her father is a House Servant and she’s spent her life hiding her differences, especially her claws and fangs.

Even though Trinity knows that she will be loaded onto a cart and hauled away, never to be seen or heard from again, it doesn’t mean that she has to accept her fate without question. She still has one week before the reading of the Harvest List to sneak into the forest and discover what happens to those who are taken, setting into motion a collision between the classes that shatters the foundation of her society.

Book two, Lake Of Sins: Secrets In Blood, is now available for pre-order at a reduced price.

Meanwhile, Emily also wonders if a big-city girl can get along with a county guy--named Bret. Under forest canopies and by crystal-clear waters she struggles with her growing attraction to him. But they're so different. Whoever thought she'd fall for someone like him?
