The second novel in her Seraphim series continues for themes of love, evil and redemption in both the spiritual and physical realms.

Lyrical prose and metaphysical musing and a good mystery make for an exciting read. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Knight

Jake Epping, a teacher in a small Maine community, is shown the portal for going back in time by a terminally ill man. Before the man dies, he convinces Jake to try and stop Lee Harvey Oswald from assassinating President Kennedy in Dallas. This is a Stephen King book, however, and there are unseen forces that do not want the past tampered with. 11/22/63 is compulsively readable, well-researched, and often exciting. Mr. King not only poses the question of what someone might do if he could stop a crime that altered history, he speculates on what America might have been like if Kennedy had escaped unharmed. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves

All of Joe Citro's books have unnerved me, but none so much as "The Gore". Something is in the forest. Something ancient. And it's been disturbed.

Published: Pocket Books - September 20th, 2011

A monsterless and subtly different kind of excursion into the blacker (and bleaker) side of life. Comprised of four stories, each one of them concerned with the duplicitous nature of the human psyche. The individual tales are all graphic, chilling, and, even Mr. King admits, unpleasant, but just try to put the book down when you get caught up in one of them. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
