P J Vernon recommends
Real Bad Things (2022)
Kelly J Ford
"Acclaimed author Kelly J. Ford spins a propulsive, sophisticated, and fearlessly queer tour de force in Real Bad Things. Ford's richly drawn characters and breathtaking storytelling create an inescapable undertow of menace that will not let go until the shocking final page. This is gothic suspense at its most haunting."
Vicious Creatures (2022)
"Deviously plotted and breathlessly spun, VICIOUS CREATURES is a gothic suspense every bit as deep and dark as the rumored child-eating forest at its heart. Ashton Noone's haunting voice is utterly unforgettable, and this debut, an absolute must-read for fans of things that go bump in the night -- or worse."
"One of the most original, chilling, and startlingly honest thrillers I've ever read, Amina Akhtar plunges readers into an altogether fresh flavor of hell in Kismet. Balancing nail-biting terror with razor-sharp wit, Akhtar interrogates the feral side of the human heart with a rare fearlessness that is certain to make Kismet one of the year's hottest titles and an absolute must-read. Period."
