The Roo (2020)
Alan Baxter
"Trust me, you've never read anything like this. Deranged, delirious, diabolical, it just begs to be a film, and when it is, I'll be first in line to see it. The Roo is a f*cking riot."

Children of Chicago (2021)
(Chicago Saga, book 1)
Cynthia Pelayo
"Part police procedural, all horror, Cynthia Pelayo's CHILDREN OF CHICAGO is an immensely entertaining and thoroughly chilling novel, which just so happens to combine two of my favorite things: Chicago and fairytales. I challenge you not to have a good time with Pelayo's book. The confidence and style on display here say she's destined to become one of the greats."

The Deer Kings (2021)
Wendy N Wagner
"A novel of fog-shrouded towns and dark secrets, of corrupted youth and shadowy barns, and of insidious cults and rituals taking place beneath the veneer of a seemingly ordinary Oregon town, The Deer Kings is a novel by an author at the top of her game. With an evocative sense of place, flesh-and-blood characters anchored by long shadows to the sinister events of the past, and a narrative punctuated by jolts of startling horror, this compulsively readable novel has solidified Wendy Wagner's place as one of the most exciting writers in the genre."
