Paul Magrs recommends
thumb
The Leaping (2010)
Tom Fletcher
"A book that's stiff with foreboding and dread right from the start. . . . It's a literary, literate horror novel--and has a mordant, knowing, blackly ironic style to it. But it's relentless, too, in its avowed intention of scaring the life out of its readers, with everything it can throw at us."

Black Dog (2014)
(Black Dog, book 1)
Rachel Neumeier
"Neumeier's writing is beautiful."
