Dark Soul (Haunted America Book 1)
by Alley McCall
$0.00, 288 pages, 4.9 out of 5.0 (17 reviews), #18 in > Romance > Paranormal > Ghosts
Hildy James: recent college grad, wife, and journalist, has an extraordinary ability, she can see and communicate with the dead. Hired right out of college by Haunted America, a large multimedia company that specializes in the publication of America's most haunted, she has been given the opportunity of a lifetime. Hildy, her husband, Charlie, his twin, Cooper, and friends, Lizzy and Oliver, set out to uncover the secrets of the Clayton estate for their first assignment. Hildy thought this would be a simple weekend, with peaceful ghosts, like she had encountered in the past.

She never expected to be targeted by a dark soul, though. A dark soul that wanted to remain hidden in the shadows, and would do anything to make sure that Hildy remained there, too.



Excerpt:

There it was again. The sound of a woman weeping hung heavy in the air. This was the reason I was running aimlessly alone in the dark. It was coming from a few feet in front of me. Then it stopped.
“Hello?” I called out nervously. I came to a stop and strained to make out even the slightest sight or sound. The silence was deafening. I could feel my heart pounding and my breath came out in pants.
I stood there for what felt like an eternity, when in reality it was only a couple of minutes. I took a deep breath, but before I could release it, she was right there.
“She’s right behind you.” She whispered.
A twig snapped.
My blood ran cold.
Before I could turn around, I felt two hands shove me hard from behind. What was once solid ground beneath my feet, morphed into air, and I went barreling over the side of the cliff.

Abe put an end to the threat of the Devourer once and for all.

So why does the world keep getting more dangerous?

Unsettling events pile up one after another: animal corpses appear on the front porch each night, an abandoned graveyard in the North Carolina woods is now home to something unnatural, and wooden men with eerily familiar faces are spotted lurking in the nearby town of Halfway.

Abe finds himself caught in a game set in motion long before the rise of mankind. A game in which even the Devourer was merely a pawn and where losing means the death of every man, woman, and child on earth.

Standing with him are the survivors of Belmont: Anne, Chuck, Leon, and his old squadmate, Henry "The Professor" Monroe. Together they intend to hold the line against the encroaching darkness and prove that there are still things in the light to be feared.

Only Human (Act One): The Pooka's Tales: Speak of the Devil
by Leigh Holland
$0.00, 202 pages, 4.7 out of 5.0 (5 reviews), #7 in > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > Metaphysical
"After my battle with the beast of the unpronounceable name, I crash landed on the walkway leading to a Welsh church. My luck was on the upturn when its priest picked me up and nursed me back to health. But now he doesn't trust me and won't let me leave. Humans- they always want something. Like the truth, for example. As if! Who does he think he's dealing with?

Want to know my history? I'm a teller of tales. Not that I'll tell you the truth. Nor is everything I say entirely a lie. Just sit back and enjoy my fantastical yarns."

An engaging adventure of desire, determination, and demonic intrigue, dragging the reader to Hell and back.


The 3 Egos
by David Dunwoody
$0.00, 277 pages, 4.7 out of 5.0 (5 reviews), #93 in > Literature & Fiction > Horror > Dark Fantasy
In a time of legend, three mortals made a deal with the Devil. Then they ran. Since then they have used magic and technology to hide from Hell’s agents. But nothing lasts forever.

Now two of them stand before the Devil and are presented with a new offer: locate the third fugitive or pay what they owe – with interest.

Joined by other lost souls, Chith and Talent cross dimensions and worlds in search of the fabled Third Ego, encountering resistance and deception at every turn. Everyone has a secret agenda. Everyone is lying. All have been made pawns in a game bigger than either Heaven or Hell – in a plot that may unravel the fabric of eternity.

Earth is doomed. Heaven will fall. Hell will burn. Time grinds to a standstill as the Three Egos meet in a bloody battle with everything at stake.

"Reads like a great pulp fiction as written by Dante Alighieri. Exploring the afterlife, and even other planets, in a series of brawls, shootouts, and backstabs, a colorful cast always keeps the reader entertained and invested in the fate of a universe predestined for destruction."
-Patrick Rutigliano, author of The UNTIMELY DEATHS OF DARYL HANDY and WIND CHILL

"The 3 Egos blew me away. Dunwoody's best and most imaginative tale yet. Completely sucked me in and swept me away. Filled with humor, wit and true horror. Think: a dark and hellish version of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I can't recommend it enough."
- David Bernstein, author of WITCH ISLAND and THE UNHINGED

"Move over, Bible! The Revelation of Dunwoody is at hand. If you're not reading this already, you are WRONG."
-Thom Brannan, author of LORDS OF NIGHT
