Cold Dream Dawning
Cold Dream Dawning (Pale Queen Series) - A. R. Kahler

I haven't read the first book in the Pale Queen series, and neither any of the other trilogies by A.R. Kahler, but besides some minor confusion during Cold Dream Dawning this didn't bother me, and it could also be read as a standalone.

The beginning was rather slow, and it was a bit harder to keep focused on the book but once the pace picked up it was an entertaining read. The characters were quite nice and I'm considering reading the next instalment in the series to see where it is going.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

On a Cold Dark Sea - Elizabeth Blackwell

 #OnAcoldDarkSea #NetGalley

The only thing bad about this book was, I couldn't put it down to get
anything done!!! I loved it! The ending was a bit abrupt and
choppy but the writing was well done and the story line fantastic!
It was a different take on the sinking of the Titanic,
focusing less in the main ship sinking, and more on the rescue of
3 main characters. It covers their lives before and after the tragedy
and how it affected them. Very well done!

A suspense story, a little dry to start.
Cold Oath - Wayne Flynt

It took me a bit to get into this story. I enjoyed Ryan and his growth, how he helped solve the cold-case murder. Lori also grew on me, and I loved the abstinence side of their relationship. There are many characters in this book, and some made me smile, others made me grimace. The college life was a good representation.

I received a copy of this book through Candid Book Reviews, and this is my unsolicited review.

Corpse Cold: New American Folklore by John Brhel and Joseph Sullivan
Corpse Cold: New American Folklore - Chad Wehrle,John Brhel,Joseph T. Sullivan

 CORPSE COLD: NEW AMERICAN FOLKLORE is a nice volume of tales which also includes outstanding illustrations. Just look at that impressive cover to get an idea of the drawings within.


The stories, however, didn't entirely float my boat. While well written for the most part, they are lacking that certain punch that I enjoy in short tales. This is just my personal view and for someone that hasn't read the hundreds of horror stories that I have? This may seem like the best collection of stories EVER.


My favorite was IT THAT DECAYS. If you weren't afraid of the dentist before, you will be now!


AUTOPLAY ON: This was a fun little tale featuring a You Tube channel that was left on all night. (I guess it's best not to do that?)


MOSS LAKE ISLAND was a neat story that took a weird turn about a third of the way in. It gave me the creeps much like IT THAT DECAYS. I like the creeps.


FRIENDSHIP: BURIED AND DEAD. This tale had a cool concept for a theme park. I would like to go there!


A CASKET FOR MY MOTHER cracked me up, especially since this book was funded in much the same way as the main character wants to fund the purchase of a casket for his mom. (I'm not sure it was meant to be funny, but hey, I'm a sick person-just look at the stuff I read!


A quick word about the illustrations? (Okay, two words.) They're fabulous!

CORPSE COLD would be a perfect introduction into the world of dark fiction for an adult who is not that familiar with or well-read in the genre. Perhaps someone who has participated in a round of campfire storytelling and wants more? Seasoned horror readers, like myself, prefer that extra punch to the gut and a tad more blood/gore as well.


Recommended for those new(er) to horror fiction and dark tales!

Scone Cold Killer - Lena Gregory Scone Cold Killer - Lena Gregory

Author Lena Gregory has served up a wonderful first course in her All-Day Breakfast Café Mystery series.


I was hungry for this series the moment I heard about it! I mean, an All-Day Breakfast Café? That’s my kind of place to eat! So, I had very high hopes going into SCONE COLD KILLER. I wasn’t disappointed.


I enjoyed the setting, and could vividly picture the café in my mind. The eclectic cast of characters made for an interesting read. I enjoyed most of them. There is one character that I’m still unsure about, but am withholding judgment until the next book in the series. I look forward to seeing how all the characters grow, and how author Gregory fleshes them out.


An easy, flowing read, I flew through this tale quickly in one setting. The mystery was tight, and well done. I thought I had it figured out, only to find I had missed an important clue, and guessed wrong. So, that made for a surprising ending for me.


SCONE COLD KILLER is story cozy fans are sure to love. And the All-Day Breakfast Café Mysteries will certainly be on your must read list!
