Virulent

Folie á Deux – Book One
by Dani René & Yolanda Olson
Publication Date: December 4, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark Romance

We’ve always been different.
Normal is something that’s bored us from the moments we were spit into this world, screaming and crying, wondering why we were dispelled from the sanctity of the darkness we both crave.
I guess in a way, it’s made us stronger than we thought we were.
Especially now since we have each other.
I’d do anything for her and she would do anything for me.

Lie.
Cheat.
Steal.
Kill.

We were never meant to be together, but the universe has a way of taking two completely different disasters and putting them together to let destruction reign freely. Our story is born of violence, deceit, and mischief, but it’s one you won’t soon forget.

Welcome to the world according to Pike & Molly.

*Warning: This is an extremely dark, taboo story. There are numerous triggers throughout the story.

Solo Circus​ by T.S. Woolard

 

Blurb – 

From the Southern Tale Spinner, T.S. Woolard, comes 15 Creepy Tales of Horror and Dark Transgressive Fiction unlike anything you’ve ever lived through before. There are stories where clearly someone is stark raving mad—and before you’re through—it may well be you. Open the door and step into Woolard’s World—if you dare.—Dona Fox, award-winning author of “Taking Ink.”

 

Our Reviews – 

Betsy – 

Solo Circus is a collection of fifteen short stories that take the reader on a journey between past and present, real and extraordinary, hopeful and horrifying. From “The Savior” all the way through to “Ashley”, each story pulled me in even more than the last. The imagery in “The Savior” made me think, trying to decipher each element. In “Non-Compliant” I was almost imagining the story as one of my favorite television shows. “Before Hell” makes you wonder how two people brought up in the same home can turn out so differently. The final story in the collection, “Ashley”, was by far my favorite of the group. A story that shows the long-lasting effects of abuse made even more disturbing with the addition of creepy dolls. While it is horror it is the psychological aspects of the stories that are more disturbing than any gore contained in the pages. I can definitely see myself rereading and discovering elements I didn’t see the first time around.

The Grindhouse: Diablo Snuff 2 by Carver Pike

 

Blurb – 

Tobias, who writes under the pen name T.K. Tantrum, has received a special gift from his assistant. He’s going to an author retreat where he will get the chance to sit and write at the desk of his fallen idol, Melvin Morose, a sick and demented horror writer who hanged himself in the very room in which Tobias will be working. The Grand Georgina, the venue for the retreat, was once a stop on the Underground Railroad, but this hotel is much more than a haunted historical relic. It has become a sick and twisted playground for an evil, demonic company called Diablo Snuff. If you read book 1, you know how horrific Diablo Snuff is. Just wait ’til you read this one.

 

Our Reviews – 

Betsy – 

A fantastic story that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end. In The Grindhouse, we follow writer T.K. Tantrum, aka Tobias, to a retreat held in an old estate turned hotel that is ground zero for some of the most horrific crimes. As soon as Tobias steps over the threshold he’s taken into a madhouse of sorts. Throughout the story, the reader is taken on a journey where you wonder what is real and what is his imagination. Could all of those things be real or are you sucked into the folklore of the setting? It’s not until the explosive ending where you see where all the madness lies.

Misti – 

A consistently eerie tale all the way to it’s smashing end!!!!

Just like any other book from this author he hits the ground running. Then the creepy and spine tingling action sucks you in right from the start.

Without giving anything away Tobias is an author who’s been given the opportunity to go to an author retreat and write at the very desk his favorite author use to write at. However, from the moment he gets to the grounds that he’s suppose to stay at he starts seeing strange things. He also meets up with Angelica and let’s just say they have lots of “fun” together. The longer he’s at this retreat though the more he knows something is WRONG. He’s not sure what but as he’s snooping he knows that if he doesn’t him and Angelica out of here now they will never leave.

The description of things throughout this book will put chills all over. This author gave me a story that will definitely be remembered for awhile.

Who would think when you go to an author retreat that you’d get a new career???

This is a short story that as you read it you find yourself rooting for Dank. He could be the guy everyone thinks he is it maybe he’s the one no one knows who they are and sometimes those are truly the ones you watch for.

 

Insanity by Ed Bar

 

Blurb – 

Warning: This book contains graphic descriptions of violence and disturbing imagery, and may trigger past traumatic events. Read at your own risk.

What if insanity wasn’t a condition? What if it was a consciousness? An uncaring entity that can infect the hearts and minds of anyone at anytime?

Insanity is a horror anthology of 13 interlocking, bone-chilling tales of innocent lives being claimed in the name of the eternal sentience of insanity. It feeds on terror, and it hungers for you. This is one book you will be too terrified to put down. Will you be safe? Can you escape the Insanity?

 

Our Reviews – 

Misti – 

This is probably the most horror book I’ve read in a very long time. It is an anthology however as one story ends it flows into another and when your done you realize how they are all linked together. From the first turn of the page until the last line you read the author takes you on his journey of Insanity. As horrific as some of the events were that happened there was definitely snark in there to break it up. I’m not sure which story i enjoyed the most. I definitely recommend to anyone that enjoys slasher books and some off the wall antics I’ve never seen before.

 

The Meaning of Hell by T.S. Woolard

 

 

Blurb – 

From The Southern Tale Spinner’s darkest side, courtroom scenes so vivid, so engrossing, at first you may forget you’re reading a story from the man who’s been to Hell himself, the transgressive terror T.S. Woolard–until the fists fly out of the page and grab you by the throat. Yes, this is Hell, and it’s going to get so much worse for Attorney John Rhaport. John represents an insane and guilty client, a man who committed heinous crimes–a giant who terrifies John and pulls him into Hell. Horrific scenes of violence will flow like ice water through your veins. Unexpected plot twists and a riveting ending wrap up this gripping page-turner. By adding his transgressive talents to the Courtroom Thriller, I believe T.S. Woolard has created an exciting new genre.

Our Reviews – 

Betsy – 

In The Meaning of Hell, we follow the trial of serial killer Jerry Thomas and the events that unfolded afterward. We get a look into the mind of Jerry Thomas through his defense attorney John Rhaport. In his quest to find a defense of Jerry we find him pouring through files from a psychiatrist he saw as a young adult Dr. Steinhardt. We see how depraved and disturbed Jerry truly is as well as almost understand why he’s become the killer he has. A fantastic story that takes you on a disturbing ride, however, once it’s over you’re looking for more. A definite must read for horror and thriller lovers.

Betsy – 

The Lost Souls of Brunswick delves into the case files of various patients that have been sent to Brunswick State Mental Hospital. With each chapter, you are treated to a different patients’ story. At the beginning of each chapter you are horrified by the actions taken by each person however as their stories are laid out, you start to see why they did what they did. Each story had that moment when the character snapped and the aftermath of that. Believable characters and a fast-paced story made this a great read.

Misti –

DARK AND TWISTED!!!

My first book by this author and I wasn’t disappointed. It’s a collection of stories about different patients at Brunswick mental hospital. This book had sadness, horror, and blood and gore, however, it was the story of the patients and how they ended up there that make you wonder how those things could happen to them. You won’t be disappointed with this book once you start you can’t put it down.

13 Demons Way by SE Rise

Blurb – 

Don’t bother knocking because no one is home. Just turn the doorknob and enter. Please leave your Good Book, Rosary and Cross at the door. Take your coat off and feel free to hang it on the rack. Dirty shoes are allowed in here and never mind the dark stains on the carpet. Prepare yourself my new friend because Hell’s doors have opened and the Demons have come out to play. Welcome to 13 Demons Way.

 

Our Reviews – 

Betsy- 

13 Demons Way is a compilation of 13 stories that are centered around demons. The 13 short stories are a combination of stories from previously published works and others are newly written. None of the stories were exceptionally scary, some were creepier than others, like The Santa Exorcism. I loved the fact that within this one book I got exposure to some of his other stories that I will surely have to read. Each story is stand alone and you can read them at your leisure. However, once I started I wanted to read until I got through all 13 stories. A must read for short story lovers.

Misti-

Fantastic especially if you love short stories.

This is a great book to start with a complying of short stories from an author. Some of these were original made specifically for this book. Others were from other chapters in his other books. The thing I loved the most was knowing where I wanted to go next in his books. I also want to say I don’t think this was necessarily horror to me. Was is scary part, but not the blood gore that most think about it was more the thriller, suspense, psychological. You know the tingling down your spine and I would definitely recommend this book to anyone especially ones that loved paranormal.
