“With a voice like warm milk and honey, Neil Gaiman breathes life into his stories Norse Mythology honors the tale’s past, but still has Neil’s distinctive style. Which is then enhanced by Gaiman reading the story aloud. Gaiman is able to create distinct voices for each of his characters, from the sly and cunning Loki, to the short-tempered, impatient warrior Thor. Gaiman took mythology that I already loved, created something even more enchanting. It is a collection of stories I could hear time after time and never grow tired of revisiting.”Victoria, Mysterious Galaxy Books

“Set in the near future, Good Neighbors is an unsettling look at mob justice at its absolute worst! Langan teases out the store through to the brutal end with excerpts from newspaper articles and books and even outtakes of interviews about the Maple Street Murders, many of them dating almost twenty years after the events themselves. And they provide a bit of a driving force to the narrative, making the reader really wonder just how bad things are going to get as the events unfold in the book. This is absolutely one I'd recommend listening to on audio! With so many different narrators as well as the outtakes mentioned above, Good Neighbors would be a challenge in less deft hands, but Nicole Lewis does a really phenomenal job as the reader here! She is one of my new favorites!”Becky, BookBar
Never Saw Me Coming
“This stunning psychological suspense novel will have you reading well into the night. That ending! Fans of Gillian Flynn and Caroline Kepnes will love this intense book.”William Carl, An Unlikely Story
“Dark Roads is dark, it is disturbing, and it is very, very entertaining. The mysterious prologue will give you a clue as to how dark it is. It shows us some of the worst of human nature. Disturbing because it is based in part on a highway in Canada where women (most of whom were First Nation) have gone missing with no resolution of their cases. Entertaining because the characters are so compelling, they force you to keep listening and listening and listening. Hailey is a remarkably strong young women whose ability to survive in the wilderness is truly a gift from her beloved father. Beth’s character really evolves in the book from a young woman with no purpose in life, who feels sorry for herself and can’t stand being controlled by her parents into someone with a purpose – find out who murdered her sister Amber in the small town of Cold Creek along the Canadian highway that has claimed many women over the years. Johnny is almost too good to be true – but thank heavens he stays true to himself. And, then there is Wolf – the best dog a woman could ever have. Chevy Stevens is at her best in this thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat through the entire book.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction

“As a child I was obsessed with the Donner Party. I went to the museum and read all about them, but never imagined something as twisted as THE HUNGER. Katsu's reinvention of the history is complex, meticulous, and a perfect metaphor for the white man's obsession with manifest destiny and the terrorism that was inflicted on Native Americans.
