The SoS strike again!

This novel could be turned into a horror series. Garza and Lason put together a hell of a cast, and a great little town in Twin Lakes.
And there's werewolves! You had me at Arrooooo!

I would definitely recommend this one to all horror fans.
I give TWIN LAKES:Autumn Fires 4.5 stars.
I would definitely revisit this town and its people.

When a young hitchhiker, Liz, is sexually assaulted and abandoned in the middle of nowhere, the sight of a campfire in the distance is a spark of hope.
What she finds is another victim, brutally murdered by another predator. A serial killer.
Brought to the town of Twin Lakes to recover from her injuries, and assist the police, she finds the locals friendly and kind, but she just wants to leave this nightmare behind her.

But some of the locals, under orders of the mysterious town founders, don't

The Sisters of Slaughter have yet to disappoint me, this is the third book of theirs that I've read and once again I absolutely loved it, it hooked me instantly and refused to let go!

The story follows Liz who manages to escape an assailant but finds herself in a much more precarious situation when she stumbles upon a decapitated body in the woods and something from the shadows attacks her. Local Law enforcement alongside the mysterious town founders try to solve the murder and remove the evil

Review: TWIN LAKES: AUTUMN FIRES by Michelle Garza and Melissa Larson

TWIN LAKES: AUTUMN FIRES is EXACTLY the kind of electrifying, breathtaking, heart-pounding, Horror suspense you need for October build up to Halloween reading! From first page to last, I could not relinquish reading, and on finishing, I find myself hungry for the return of these unusual characters and this very exceptional (spooky!) little Pacific Northwest community. Horror, religious persecution, paganism, ritual sacrifice:

October happens to be one of my favorite months. I love everything having to do with Halloween from horror movies to scary stories. So, this month is the perfect time to read some spooky stories and hopefully not scare myself so bad that I sleep with the lights on at night. Okay I am lying I am totally sleeping with the lights on! Yes, I am a scaredy cat!

Twin Lakes: Autumn Fires is the first in a long line of scary stories I have chosen to read this month. Elizabeth “Liz” Troy is backpacking

Twin Lakes: The Autumn Fires is a fun read with some nice, dark imagery along the way. Usually when I read anything with tentacle monsters, I tend to back away from the book as I can never take those types of creatures seriously, but the creepy shadow tentacles and demon are handled so well in this book that I found myself getting more and more intrigued. The demon is nothing to mess around with and he certainly ensures some people meet gruesome endings. I really enjoyed the supernatural and ...more

Michelle and Melissa, aka The Sisters of Slaughter, are back with a new novel full of blood, horror and lots of secrets.

Having read several short stories by the Sisters of Slaughter (from here on referred to as SOS), this is the first full length novel of theirs I have read. I was not disappointed. They have created a world filled with wonderful and frightening characters. It takes a good writer to make a world that the reader can almost visualize while reading, and here we have 2 authors

2018 has come and gone, but the books from it remain in my to be read pile. Just a few more to go, and I can get into reading all the great things 2019 will well as the whole reason I started this blog: unsung classics from the "heyday".

But there's plenty of good stuff being churned out by new authors, that shouldn't go ignored, thus my dedication to covering new material. If we are ever going to see a closeness

I really love books where the monsters are the good guys! A great read by the awesome Sisters of Slaughter. Their books never fail to be a great read. I recommend this highly.

Review Copy

If you enjoy reading horror as much as I do and if you haven't read anything by the Sisters of Slaughter you're doing yourself a disservice. Real-life sisters, Michelle Garza & Melissa Lason, have always loved the dark side of life. I loved this line from their guest post on yesterday's blog...

"We dressed our cats in doll clothes and pretended they were werewolves attacking our Barbies."

Their first published novel, Mayan Blue, was nominated for the coveted Bram Stoker award. and

I have been wanting to read this boom for awhile based on title and cover and finally picked it up and it did not disappoint! There was so much more than I even imagined to take in here! Amazing setting and characters, a mythology and town to be interested in. I really hope to see more of twin lakes from these two!!

This is the first book I’ve read by the Sisters of Slaughter. In a nutshell, I think that the story is captivating and the characters are lovable (the good guys, anyway!) but I think that some of the characters and scenes lacked depth.

But first off, here are the things I loved about the book.

Some of the main characters were easy to love and get behind. I found myself rooting for them to uncover the true killer and biting my nails when they were in danger. The main three characters are Liz, Linda

TWIN LAKES: AUTUMN FIRES burns bright. The story settles over you like an October mist, burrows under your skin, carving ancient symbols into your flesh.

TWIN LAKES: AUTUMN FIRES is a refreshing horror read. October is the perfect month to read this one. I loved MAYAN BLUE. If you haven't read it, then you should remedy that quick like. When you hear the Sister's of Slaughter have a new one coming out, you move it to the top of the TBR pile. It's just what you do. Just look at the cover, guys! I

A satisfying departure for the Sisters of Slaughter

When you pick up a book by two authors nicknamed “ The Sisters of Slaughter “ you expect certain, wet , messy things. With their newest book, Twin Lakes, you get those things but not nearly as plentiful.
Instead you getting more fleshed out characters and an expanded scope.
A young girl survives a brutal attack only to stumble on the remains of a demonically influenced serial killer.
The story quickly expands into interesting territories of

I’ve loved all the books by the Sisters of Slaughter and this one was no different. It’s felt like a mix of horror with urban fantasy elements. I’m a sucker for these small town and stories so I knew I would be on board with this from the beginning. They fast paced plot mixed with all of the interesting characters made this one a troop page turner. I can’t wait to read more about the citizens of this town. I hope there is more coming. The novel really reminded me of the first episode and a TV ...more

The Sisters of Slaughter do it again, this time with a small town supernatural thriller that has you flipping pages with growing tension. Witches and werewolves, mediums and monsters, the town of Twin Lakes may seem idyllic to some, but it harbors many dark secrets. A serial killer utilizing occult practices has gained the attention of various factions in the town, and a young woman fleeing an attacker stumbles far too close for anyone’s liking. TW:AF is a frantic dash into terror and brutality, ...more

Oh man, where to begin with this one? A poor girl in the wrong place at the wrong time, a demon that delights in torture, a town that is filled with things that are not what they appear, this book has it all! It's super creepy, a lot fun, and filled with the spirit of Fall. I really hope there are more stories about this town because I was not ready to go when it was finished.

The language in this book comes across as stiff and stilted; it doesn’t flow naturally. Dialogue often gets cheesy and silly. The others come across as a bunch of cranky, gossipy, catty people rather than a nifty and intriguing society. Most of them also seem to think they’re better than anyone around them, which makes them obnoxious and unlikable. Even major ancestor characters, such as Dr. Michael Aaron, don’t exhibit much personality. The setup with the ancestors is also overly complex, and ...more

Twin Lakes: Autumn Fires is a book that I first discovered on social media. People seemed to like it, the book has a 4 star GR average and a genuinely awesome premise so I threw it on my TBR. It’s a very short book, around a 150 pages, so it’s perfect for reading in one sitting. I think this is a divisive one, I thought it was OK, which clearly doesn’t align with a lot of other peoples thoughts

From the very first page I was intrigued. The once peaceful small town of Twin Lakes becomes a place of horrors for the main protagonist Liz and the towns people she meets along the way. Not everything is at it seems and not everyone is whom they appear to be. An evil entity is released within the dense ominous forest of Twin Lakes and is hungry for bloodshed. Very enjoyable and creepy. Give me more Horror narratives like this! I highly recommend this wonderfully gorey story to all horror fans ...more

The authors are also known as Sisters of Slaughter. After reading this book I now know why they go by that name. It’s because they slaughter the fuck out of a horror story! These women aren't afraid to get their hands dirty with blood and guts either. I really enjoyed this tale of ritualistic sacrifice, a supernatural detective duo, witches, secrets and so much horror
I recommend this book if you want a solid horror story that dips its toe in fantasy.
Support women in horror!
