Girl on Fire by Gemma Amor

What a book… I did help format this book but my review is based on the fabulous writing that is held within the pages and not my involvement in the project (just for transparency I wanted to mention that small fact). Girl on Fire wastes no time and throwing the reader headlong into the story,

Perpetual Dread by Brian Bowyer

  Horror – an intense feeling of fear, shock, or disgust. Perpetual Dread is the perfect title for this books as with each turn of the page I was unsure what would face me. It is one of the darkest and most depraved books I’ve ever read – it is full on extreme horror –

It

Penpal by Dathan Auerbach

I love finding a book by an author that I know nothing about, and that is the case for Penpal and Dathan Auerbach. I put out a request near my birthday for some horror books to purchase and one person recommended Penpal. They said that it freaked them out no end and well, with a
