EXPERIMENT IN TERROR series (#1-9)

Genre: Paranormal Horror / Romance

Purchase: Amazon / B&N / Kobo


WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
"In a large, flaky nut­shell, the Exper­i­ment in Ter­ror Series is an nine-part sci-fi/fantasy/horror series that revolves around a pair of ghost hunters. Well, aspir­ing ghost hunters, any­way. After film­ing a creepy expe­ri­ence in her uncle’s dilap­i­dated light­house, 22-year old Perry Palomino becomes a YouTube and inter­net star overnight. She attracts the atten­tion of Dex Foray, a pro­ducer and cam­era­man for a site that spe­cial­izes in var­i­ous webisodes, who con­vinces her to be a host for a low-budget ghost hunt­ing series. The only prob­lem is, nei­ther Perry or Dex are entirely “with it” — I mean, they see ghosts, after all. And when the duo isn’t wrestling with their very notion of real­ity, they’re grap­pling with a work­ing rela­tion­ship that’s deep-cut with sex­ual ten­sion. As the series moves on, lead­ing Perry and Dex to new locales and super­nat­ural sit­u­a­tions, their lives become more and more inter­twined, where they dis­cover that ghosts aren’t the only things that can haunt them."

THE DEVIL'S METAL (Devils #1)

Genre: Paranormal Horror / Romance

Purchase: AmazonB&NKobo 


WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
To sum this book up, The Devil's Metal is about 70s music; about sex, drugs and rock&roll and about some serious demon stuff... Dawn (the main protagonist of this novel) is 21 years old student, dreaming of becoming respected female music journalist. Altough as a woman in 70s, it is going to be very difficult to achieve. Then she gets unexpected but amazing offer - to participate on tour with famous and one of her favourite metal bands Hybrid and write about it. Now things are going to change drastically for Dawn... The whole Hybrid band and crew was fascinating. To read about backstage events of band tour in 70s was definitely very refreshing experience. But once Dawn sees band's true face and losts her ideals, everything starts to go downhill. Things become very creepy and dangerous. But I do not want to give anything away, you will just have to read it yourself. It is worth it!

Historical romance, fascinating Indian’s legends, gore, a lot of action and zombies. Donners of the Dead will become your new favourite!

THE SHINING (The Shining #1)

Genre: Supernatural Horror

Purchase: Amazon / B&N / Kobo


WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This novel needs no introduction. It is my favorite horror story of all time. Nothing else was able to beat it through out the years.
"Danny was only five years old but in the words of old Mr Halloran he was a 'shiner', aglow with psychic voltage. When his father became caretaker of the Overlook Hotel his visions grew frighteningly out of control.  As winter closed in and blizzards cut them off, the hotel seemed to develop a life of its own. It was meant to be empty, but who was the lady in Room 217, and who were the masked guests going up and down in the elevator? And why did the hedges shaped like animals seem so alive?  Somewhere, somehow there was an evil force in the hotel - and that too had begun to shine..."
