TRAPPED

TRAPPED

We’re ready for the party.

We’re here for the dancing and music.

But where is everyone?

Candles lead us upstairs

To an endless maze of rooms.

More candles lead us downstairs

To a basement filled with water.

The windows won’t open.

The doors are locked.

Is it safer upstairs or downstairs?

Who will survive this night?

Who will survive this party?

The party has only just begun.

THE SINKHOLE

THE SINKHOLE

A sinkhole where the house has stood

Lies deep in the deserted wood.

Where has everyone gone to?

The grass and trees are gone too.

A house and garden have once stood here.

Now there is only the ground laid bare.

Could they be in the tunnels below?

And hear me if I yell out hello?

I hear rumbling coming from the hole.

The loose rocks are beginning to roll.

I should leave before it’s too late

And I suffer the same sad fate.

5 STAR REVIEW

There is something painfully wrong about the seemingly perfect town of Oasis
on May 25, 2015
The opening pages of “The Dead Game” grab you at the ankles and drag into the deeper story. There is something painfully wrong about the seemingly perfect town of Oasis. Without getting into spoilers, here’s my take. Leist’s cast of characters are interesting in and of themselves. They do leave you wanting to get to know them better; yet, as in real life you only get to see the sides and masks that others want you to see. That, to me, was the author’s point. Everyone in Oasis seems to have an agenda, and it’s hard to know what to believe. With that in mind, Leist does a great job of bringing to life the picturesque town of Oasis, and the menacing End House. The book is reminiscent of tales like “House on Haunted Hill,” yet with its own twists on the supernatural thriller. The story is well-paced and the dangers faced by Leist’s characters feels terrifyingly real. All in all, a good read. I look forward to reading more works from this author.

HERE COMES THE MOON

HERE COMES THE MOON

Here comes the moon.
Taking the place of heat.
Bringing with it a coldness.
A darkness.
Up it goes into the sky.
Towering above us all.
Ruling over its domain.
Some nights it reveals its full face.
Other nights it hides in the shadows.
While it watches.
Watches us.
While we wait for the heat to return.

Couldn’t put it down!
on May 4, 2015
A fast-paced, epic read! I’m already a sucker for a good horror novel but add in mystery and paranormal with a touch of romance, like this book does, and you’ve basically found my happy place. The Dead Game by Susanne Leist is a novel that will grip you from the very beginning, with good twists and turns that’ll keep you guessing all the way until the end. Can’t wait to read more from this author!
