THE NIGHT STOCKERS by Kristopher Triana & Ryan Harding

 Sadie's Review

 

 

Kristopher Triana and Ryan Harding prove that not all horror is created equal. NIGHT STOCKERS gets double the gore, explicit sex, and graphic violence BUT as a counterweight, Triana & Harding heap on the character development--making this a dangerous reading experience. I'll explain:

Book Review: ANOKA by Shane Hawk

Book Review: ANOKA by Shane Hawk

It delves deep into the relationship between a mother and her child. Gulp but tick.

And the abstract main character...

Bookstagram Read Along: DAWN OF THE LIVING-IMPAIRED by Christine Morgan

A bunch of us book nerds on #bookstagram read RECEPTION by Kenzie Jennings together in February and we just were not ready to leave the party so we selected another Death's Head Press title, DAWN OF THE LIVING-IMPAIRED by Christine Morgan. Here are our reviews...

 In my early 20s I consumed a lot of zombie media. So it has been a number of years since I last dipped into reading anything with a zombie storyline. If I'm being honest, zombie's just feel a little overdone, we've...
