A-Z: Books I’ve Read

A-ZC is for Creepy

 

The Cat, the Crow, and the Cauldron:

A Halloween Anthology

A strange and wonderful collection of Halloween stories, ranging from paranormal romance to horror.

Joe DeRouen’s Good Fortune teaches us a valuable lesson about why you should be very careful when you hold someone’s fate in your hands. It may come back to haunt you, just as it does for Grimsley Harkness, who dares to wish for more than he deserves.

Celia Kennedy’s Nothing Scares Me takes readers on a test of endurance. Lost in the Florida Everglades, Ardith Deblois, wife, mother and intrepid adventurer, fights for her life. Enveloped within the humid swamplands is a perilous maze full of obstacles and adversaries. Which is the greater impediment, the humans that hunt her or the deadly animals and poisonous plants she hides amongst?
Can she fight through fatigue and dehydration to save herself? Nothing Scares Me. True or not?

Zeece Lugo’s Five Stories Up finds us on October 31st, 1966, and night is falling over the city. Below, the groups of little ghosts and goblins stream in and out of the front stoops and basement bodegas, running, laughing, white blankets flapping in the wind, their candy treasures tightly held in hand. But above, in the dark rooftop of Sonia’s building, something pale and evil watches her, and beckons…

Angie Martin’s “Sold” follows a paranormal team as they investigate the home of a serial killer for their live Halloween night televised show.

In Heather Osborne’s Will You Remember Me? past and present collide when ghosts from witch trials of long ago come to life. It’s up to Sierra to lay things to rest.

In Leonie Rogers’ Roast Pumpkin, Anna discovers that going trick-or-treating in her new home town is more of an out-of-this-world experience than she’d ever imagined.

CJ Rutherford’s ‘Treaters’ tells the story of Jaz. Who would believe the world would end on Halloween night? Can Jaz, a retired U.S. Marine, battle loss, grief, demons, and loneliness, to survive the end of the world?

In Jada Ryker’s Dead Eye, Alex takes Marisa to an unusual Halloween party in an isolated Kentucky community… with a murderer ready with deadly tricks, rather than treats.

In Jalpa Williby’s Beauty and the Beast, Kelsey’s entire family perishes in a fire on a dreadful Halloween night. Overcome by grief and guilt, she decides to end her pain once and for all. Will the mysterious stranger be her savior, or will he ultimately cause her tragic demise?

The Cat, the Crow, and the Cauldron: Review

27177540A great collection of 9 spooky stories from some brilliant authors.

As with all anthologies, I enjoyed some of the stories more than others, and some were scarier than others, but they were all well-written and entertaining to read.

My favourites were Joe DeRouen’s Good Fortune, Zeece Lugo’s Five Stories, Leonie Rogers’ Roast Pumpkin, CJ Rutherford’s Treaters and Jalpa Williby’s Beauty and the Beast.

Beauty and the Beast by Jalpa Williby is an imaginative story which drew me in. I loved that it ended well for Kelsey.

CJ Rutherford’s Treaters grabbed me from the start and didn’t let go. It’s a descriptive and chilling tale and the ending made me cry.

The book introduced me to some authors who were previously unknown to me, and I will be looking for some of their full-length books to read.

 

Cemetery at Devil’s Bend

Gina Moray

Something strange is happening to Pine Creek. A cemetery pops up just outside of town and it’s fueling the residents’ fears. The headstones bare the names of residents interred in town and the townsfolk are left wondering … what’s buried beneath the soil. Marty Duller, a historian with a passion for cemeteries, starts to ask questions and learns that all is not what it seems in Pine Creek. There are more than bodies buried in the town’s history and their very souls may be at risk.

Cemetery at Devil’s Bend: Review

26105738A well-written and spooky short story that grabs hold of you at the start and drags you along to the end.

Plenty of suspense and twists to keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat, right up to the surprising conclusion.

I was, very quickly, just as curious as Marty, to find out about the creepy cemetery.

 
Gina Moray:

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.

 

Catacombs of the Damned

P.J. Cadavori

Selling their London home and buying a decaying rural pile in the wilds of the English countryside seems to Bill and Alison Cavendish the perfect way to swap the stresses and strains of the city for a peaceful new life in the country, with the added bonus of cash in the bank. Unfortunately the manor house which captures their interest in the picturesque village of Little Daunting has problems far older, deeper and nastier than rats and dry rot. The cellars conceal a terrible, shocking secret; one which dates all the way back to the witch hunts of the 17th century and to those who would steal living bodies in the quest for eternal life. As Bill and Alison soon discover, at least one of the villagers knows far more than he is admitting about the gruesome events that have been taking place in the ancient, walled-off catacombs, which lie concealed under the neighboring churchyard. When Bill and Alison and their new gypsy allies investigate, they find themselves lifting the lid on an unimagined horror… Catacombs of the Damned, is a sexy, shocking horror story for adults from P J Cadavori.

Catacombs of the Damned: Review

17470344I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads and am glad I had the chance to read it.

It’s a must-read for any Horror fan.

With a great mix of characters, this Haunted House story keeps you hooked from start to end.

 
P.J. Cadavori :

After an illustrious career in stockbroking and financial risk management which took him to Australia and the USA (he has a BSc from Indiana State University) as well as the London Stock Exchange, P J Cadavori retired to the Somerset countryside, where he pursues his passions for ancient history and old books. He describes his home as a ‘decaying pile’ crammed with stuffed birds, pictures of his ancestors and paintings of military scenes, alongside shelves laden with the works of Shakespeare, Chaucer, Milton and the classical poets. The inspiration for his writing comes from the top ranks of today’s authors, from James Herbert and Anne Rice to Bernard Cornwell and Ray Bradbury.

My Review:

13 short stories, 2 poems, and a novella.
I enjoyed all the stories in this book and have definitely discovered some ‘new to me’ authors, who I’ll be searching out for further reading.

From angels and demons, through shifters and vampires, to witches and zombies, and more! This anthology has them all.

There wasn’t a single tale that didn’t capture my attention and imagination. The stories were all interesting, well written and complete, though some of them left me wanting more…!

Black Vials by Sam Gregory was one of those stories. That one had a ‘To be continued…’ at the end, so I’ll be keeping my eye out for that.

I’d also like to read more about Lola from Angel’s Blood by Mirren Hogan, and I need to know what happens next with Jane from Reign of Evil by Simone Young.

All in all a great book by some great authors.

**I received an ARC of Damsels of Distress for an early review, and have since bought a copy!
