Manchester-based Serena, now eighteen and pregnant, discovers the shocking reason why Tile X has befriended her. She doesn’t like what she hears. Mayhem ensues, with a retired Irish police superintendent becoming more involved than perhaps he should have. The Hostile Game is the third book in The Hostile series of gripping paranormal crime thrillers. Each book in this unusual series can be read as a standalone.
Available in Kindle, paperback, and audiobook editions.
Found unconscious in the wake of a devastating storm, Prax Sadeh struggles to regain her footing - and her independence - as she recovers from her coma under the protective eye of her lovingly overbearing mother. She’s not surprised by the strict rules in place meant to help her; after all, her younger sister is practically a shut-in.
What does surprise her is the apparent side-effect from her head injury: the sudden and horrible ability to foresee a person’s imminent death.
The only one who seems to fully understand her struggle to maintain sanity is the local cemetery’s groundskeeper, who is none too pleased by Prax’s frequent visits to the one place her visions don’t plague her. Despite his irritable nature, Aidon Elrik knows a thing or two about seeking solitude and begrudgingly helps her gain some semblance of control over this newfound gift/curse.
When two little girls vanish from a very public place, authorities are stumped for leads and the community descends into panic as rumors fly and interpersonal tensions rise. It’s every mother’s waking nightmare, and Dr. Sadeh is determined to keep her daughters safe, even at the risk of straining her already tumultuous relationship with Prax.
But not even the sanctuary of the cemetery can prevent new visions from shoving Prax into the investigation and deep into the tangled web of the region’s darkest industry.
Holiday for The Hostile, the second book in The Hostile series, is probably even stranger than the first. It can be read as a stand-alone. Serena, plus her unusual friend and partner in crime, Tile X, reluctantly find themselves suffering a family holiday at her eccentric grandfather’s hovel in Ireland. Who will escape intact from their dramatic holiday from Hell? A gripping paranormal crime thriller with a splash of horror. Available in Kindle, paperback, and audiobook editions.

In the year of Satan, 2066, the structure of the physical world is cracking, and inexplicable paranormal forces are interfering with humanity. The Trinity Investigation Organization, or TIO—a paranormal detective society—is the last protection against the demons, evil spirits, fanatical criminals, and sadists who are trying to destroy the world.
The 92-year-old Pope is pregnant. Although he hasn’t undergone any medical procedures, he carries a human fetus in his abdomen. Is this a case of self-cloning, or is it a mutation? Is this an immaculate conception, or is it Satan’s work?
Claire, Travis, and Prescott, the members of the Capuchin Trinity Team of TIO, are tasked with uncovering the truth about this unusual case and resolving the mystery of whether the Pope is carrying the new Messiah or the Antichrist, and who did it.

In recent months, their dreams have been haunted by someone who understands their pain: a Fury who survived the witch hunts of Old Salem. Three days before Halloween, she enters their dreams and summons them to be Revengers, just as she has done for a new trio of teens every year for centuries. If they abide by her seemingly simple set of rules, she promises supernatural protection while they avenge their losses.

When they agree—setting in motion three bloody acts of vengeance—things begin to spiral out of control and they come to understand they are pawns in ancient game. As the Fury toys with them, they race against the clock, hoping to live more than just a few more days…

Will Cat and her friends be able to escape and survive the Queen of Vampires’ fury?

She and Dr. Tudor might not be allowed to see the light of day again. Cat’s only hope for rescue is her vampire friend, Mundibuto, who is presently in Transylvania. Will they be able to escape from the blood sucking proto-vampires, and flesh-eating zombies, or become zombies themselves?
The Hostile Series Box Set is a collection of books 1-4 in The Hostile series of unusual contemporary British paranormal crime thrillers. Book 1 is The Hostile, Book 2 is Holiday for The Hostile, Book 3 is The Hostile Game, and Book 4 is Confronting The Hostile. This ‘refreshingly original’ series is set mainly in Manchester, Liverpool, and Ireland. Get it before it gets you.
When Cat Sanders’ vampire great-great-grandfather, Vlad V Draculesti, bequeaths his fortune to her, she thinks the worst of her problems would be dealing with unscrupulous lawyers, greedy financiers and bankers, Wall Street shysters, corrupt politicians, devious conmen, and depraved socialites.
Instead, her nemesis, Veronica Seyler, allied with a vampire-slayer drug cult, demands extortion money or she would be killed. Unlike Vlad V, Cat is not a vampire and her life is in danger. Luckily, her vampire friend, Angelique, comes to her aid. But the cult is more cunning and dangerous than even her vampire friend could handle. Would Cat and Angelique the vampire be able to come out of this alive even if Cat pays the ransom?
A killer who prays on lonely women. A millionaire widow. A child who lagged behind once too often. A mechanic with a penchant for common girls. Each of them left a trail, and each of those trails was followed.
Who's trailing you?
While writing this book I placed most emphasis under writing a good story. The book is good at holding the reader engaged and at times it can be rather entertaining. It starts with an introduction to the story of Dracula, followed by the pre-story of Dracula and then the story of Dracula. Then we can begin with the actual plot line of the book.
It is a manuscript ready to be made into a movie after buying the rights from me. If you plan to make a movie and thereby buy the rights for it get in touch with me first. Since I have all the personas, drawings and pictures of all the things I have described in the book.
At the end of the book you should have two questions. First what happens next? Second why did he choose to end it off like that?
The book is written as a manuscript.
The Thomas's were an average, upper-class family - three lovely girls, a little boy who always seemed to be in trouble, a father lost to war, and a mother doing her best to uphold the family name in his absence. Their hilltop home was handed down for generations, and was filled with all the usual knick knacks every family accumulates with each new generation.
Years later, a young woman searching for her own family discovers she is the last remaining descendent of the Thomas's, and that she has inherited the house with the breathtaking ocean view. When she stumbles upon a box full of her lost family's belongings - little things only she could appreciate - she is enchanted.
But families collect stories, too, and the tales these little treasures have to tell will reveal a family that began tearing itself apart the night little Stanley Thomas died, with each tale more gruesome than the last.
It's the horror you inherit that haunts you.
Whether it's at a school dance, in the mailbox, or at the bottom of a shot glass, these people are about to encounter creatures the likes of which have never appeared in even the grizzliest bestseller, and so are you. Real monsters have no time for fairy tales, and happy endings are not guaranteed.
Ten monsters of a different kind.
*The editing mistake noted in a previous review of this book - namely a chapter appearing twice - has now been corrected. My apologies to anyone who bought this edition of the book.* Cole Jensen is a hack who makes good money writing bad books about women - until another hack comes along and usurps him, and he finds himself bankrupt and homeless. He is taken in and given a job by Constance Morrell, an icily beautiful woman who feels she owes him a favour.
Now home is a pool house at the bottom of the garden of a mansion in the Hollywood hills. There are many perks to his new living situation, but there are also drawbacks, not the least of which is being expected to entertain the odd, sinister women Constance invites to her nightly soirees. Cole's disturbing encounters with these women give him the inspiration to begin work on the novel he's always wanted to write - a social satire on the nocturnal activities of the rich and bored - but with the party games getting darker and the guest list dropping by the day, Cole must decide whether artistic integrity is really worth dying for.

This collection of short stories and poems grew from many different sources. Some tales have been sitting in my writing files for nearly fifteen years waiting to be properly edited.
Many grew out of prompts from the people at various writing groups, and some even came from personal experience.
Some simple happened because during bouts of people watching I discovered there were short tales everywhere.
I am often asked how I can write some of my darker material when I generally am a bright and positive person.
Like most things in life, stories very quickly take on a life of their own, and if they choose to be dark, so be it. Every parent knows that some of their children will grow up happy and others will march to a totally different drummer.
So please enjoy this mad pool of stories and poems. It will be a meal with a wide variety of taste and flavor.
In this fictional story.. Grayson sets out on a mysterious dark journey to save the world from evil. He soon finds out that it's definetely not what he was expecting or used to, but the rewards for him may be really life changing for him if he succeeds.
You can see yourself going down a road when you come to a crossing. One road has a sign saying “True Story of Dracula (Hardcover)” the other has “True Story of Dracula (Kindle)”. You cannot make up your mind which one to take. The hardcover version is meant for the ones who really want the experience to go along. Whereas the Kindle edition is for the ones who really do not care about the attributes but value the text, how it has been written and whether it is a good story. The hardcover version has a lot more graphical images than does the Kindle. The graphical effects that are applied to the hardcover version make you want to continue. On the Kindle it has no aura.
Comments by reviewers:
Great book that is entertaining and it was sometimes hard to put it away. I would recommend it to everyone who is interested in history, Dracula or interested in reading a good book. Anrijs
I really love this little story…… Last night I read it and now I want to say to everyone that this is a great story. Thank you MARTIN. Virginia
Dracula certainly the most chilling terrifying book ever written; it's really the best horror story in my eyes. shirley
You may have seen every Dracula movie ever made, but you do not know the real Count Dracula until such time as you have read this book. Of course, unless you have been living under a rock, you will know the general plot line, but I assure you there is a wealth of rich material buried throughout the text that is sure to excite, intrigue, and surprise you. Michael Ryan
This book is a very good read and the author wants to make it feel like you are there experiencing it together with the characters. nene
