From a beautiful antique that gives its owner a show he'd rather forget, to 'ghost detective' whose exorcism goes horribly wrong and a sinister masked ball which seems to have one too many guests, these ghost stories of supernatural terror are guaranteed to make you shiver, thrill and look under the bed tonight.

From rural England to colonial India, in murky haunted mansions and under modern electric lighting, these master storytellers - some of the best writers in the English language - unfold spinetinglers which pull back the veil of everyday life to reveal the nightmares which lurk just out of sight. They are lessons in ingenuity and surprise, sometimes building slowly to a chilling climax, sometimes springing horror on you from the utterly banal. And as you'd expect from these writers, the stories are more than simply frightening - they're also disquieting exposures of mortality, loneliness and the human capacity for both evil and remorse.

We wish you pleasant dreams.

Contains ghost stories by: Ruth Rendell, M. R. James, Rudyard Kipling, Edith Wharton, E. F. Benson, E. Nesbit, Saki, W. W. Jacobs, W. F. Harvey, Hugh Walpole, Chico Kidd and LP Hartley.

Victoria

Only Death Could Stop Her Now
The Huntress now becomes the Hunted

The Daughters of Darkness is a series of female heroines who may or may not know each other, but all have the same father, Vlad Montour.

Victoria is a Hunter Vampire, one of the last of her kind. She's the best of the best.
When she finds out one of her marks is actually her sister she let's her go, only to end up on the wrong side of the council.
Forced to prove herself she hunts her next mark, a werewolf. Injured and hungry, she is forced to do what she must to survive. Her actions upset the ancient council and she finds herself now being the one thing she has always despised -- the Hunted.

‘Tori’ has no other option but to run. She’s disappointed the Council, attacked and killed an Elder and now Vlad, her abysmal father, is determined to find her.

When secrets of the past reveal themselves, she finds herself at a crossroad.
Unsure of which way to go, she must trust in other supernaturals to help guide her—something she has never allowed before.
Forced to go against other Hunter vampires, she is backed into a corner where her only way out is to fight, or die trying.

This is Tori's story by W.J. May. It is book 2 in the Daughter of Darkness; Tori's story. As a courtesy, the author wishes to inform you this novella does end with a cliffhanger. The next book coming out in early Autumn (or sooner) will continue the story.

***This is an adult book series and does contain scenes for readers that are 16+***

THE THIRD SEASON IN THE HIT POST APOCALYPTIC SERIAL

Back in October 2013, a chaotic infection spread across the globe, turning the majority of the population into bloodthirsty zombies.

The weak fell. Many of the strong fell, too.

But some fought. They did things they weren't proud of. They made gut-wrenching decisions and faced up to dark realities in order to live.

Dead Days is the story of a group of those survivors. 

Season Three of the thrilling, suspenseful series picks up right from Season Two’s stunning cliffhanger. The group is separated, but bound by their destination: Manchester Living Zone, a mythical safe haven many miles away. 

But every character faces a very different threat. Riley must battle through a harrowing tunnel with a man who claims he is the key to everything. Pedro and his new friends are forced to fight their way down a motorway, in order to protect the boy who might secure a future for the planet. And Chloë discovers the dangers of solitude, as she sinks further and further into the realms of darkness… 

Who will reach Manchester? Who will survive? 

And is survival even worth it in this terrifying new world? 

There will be blood. There will be tears. In the Dead Days, nobody is safe. 

With fast-paced zombie action and gripping character scenarios, Dead Days is a truly unmissable serial adventure. Download the complete season three now. You’ll be hooked on every word, right until the jaw-dropping final page…
