H is for Horror
The worst nightmares come from below!
When the world ends on Halloween night, Jaz, a retired US Marine, thinks it’s all over. His friends, his family…they’re all gone. He’s alone and on the run.
He encounters Jennifer, a 19-year-old waitress hiding in her dad’s roadside diner, and together they begin a desperate dash to the desolation of North Dakota, as far away from the slaughterhouses of the cities as they can get.
Their imagined safety doesn’t last long, as Jaz and Jennifer realize the attack was just the first strike in a battle that has raged since the dawn of time.
Warning. This book contains graphic violence, profanity, and scenes of a sexual nature.
A fantastic read that kept me on the edge of my seat.
It’s an amazing mix of horror, fantasy and romance, with plenty of action.
It grabs you on page one and doesn’t let go until you reach the end…
And what an ending – I didn’t see that coming.
The treaters are out to destroy all humankind and something else is destroying all life on earth.
After the death of his friends, Jaz is left to survive the end of the world on his own, until he meets Jennifer. They may be the only two people left on earth after the treater’s invasion.
Thanks to CJ Rutherford’s descriptive writing, I joined Jaz and Jennifer (and Tray, the dog) as they ran, hid, survived attacks and fell in love.
This is an awesome book and I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.
CJ Rutherford has always been a story teller, even if they started out in his mind only. He grew up on a farm in very rural Ireland, and was left pretty much to his own devices most of the time.
So, he invented his own world, with fairies, trolls, and other mystical creatures.
His stories stayed with him throughout his life, sometimes scrawled down on scraps of paper, and occasionally brought to life in a sketch (although he’s the first to admit what he drew and what you might see might not bear any similarity to each other.)
Along came two daughters, and at last he had an outlet for his imagination. As the girls grew up they were enthralled by the characters and the worlds their father created. He even brought them to life in his fantasy world, and they never knew when he sat down to tell them their bed-time story, whether they would be fighting a dragon or playing with one.
But time moves on, and daughters grow up, and soon enough, CJ needed another way to tell his tales.
The rest, as they say, is history…or the future, depending on how you look at it

Hellbounce. Demons don’t always hide in the dark.
An amazing story!
Join the ‘forgettable’ Madden and psychotherapist Eva Ross, helped along the way by Janus and the ARC, as they race against time to save mankind and stop the Apocalypse.
This well-paced and action-packed book grabs your attention and holds it to the last page and beyond. It’s a great story with a well thought out plot. The graphically detailed descriptions don’t just let you visualise the scene, they draw you in and make you a part of it. I loved being a part of this adventure.
The interesting and dimensional characters were strong, believable and easy to love… or hate.
I am very interested to see where the story takes me in the second book, Hellborne

The Guardians: Review
I enjoy a good horror story and having read Gina Moray’s short story, Cemetery at Devil’s Bend, I knew I had to read her debut novel, The Guardians, and I wasn’t disappointed… it was everything I hoped it would be!
With this descriptive and wonderfully scary story, Gina had me gripped from the start and kept me on the edge of my seat as the gory body count rose and had me wondering who, if anyone, would survive the terrifying evil.
Not for the faint hearted, but if, like me, you like a good scary book, The Guardians is well worth reading.
Gina Moray is an indie writer of dark horror and thriller, living in Tennessee, with a desire to unleash her own brand of horror on the world. She’s loved horror since a young age, with her first horror books, Stories and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe and Stephen King’s Cycle of the Werewolf, read at the tender age of 8. Her stories are not pretty. She writes across the whole spectrum of horror, from the mildly spooky all the way to extreme horror.
