I LOVE THIS REVIEW!

on March 5, 2016
“The Dead Game” by Susanne Leist is one of those great reads that you stumble across and end up eternally grateful for discovering it. In a vast sea of paranormal novels, The Dead Game stands out in all its horrifying glory. If you’re seeking chills and thrills this book is definitely a great read. Just the prologue will be enough to drag you deep into a plot filled with brilliant twists and turns. Leist brings her world and story to life with strong vivid language that flows seamlessly, lulling you into a tale you’ll never forget. I find her cast of characters to be truly unique and real, expressing human nature as if it were bare before us. Without hesitation I can say this is among the best novels of the year I’ve come across. Highly recommended.

Review of THE DEAD GAME

I had to share this review. It’s the type of review that authors dream of. A reader that understood the book, the plot, the characters. Thank you Deneale !
Deneale Williams rated it it was amazing

This book, “The Dead Game” would make an excellent horror movie. I just could not get enough of it, and would love to see it on the silver screen. In fact, I think it would be even more fantastic in 3 dimensional. 

Let me start by saying: I read this in the dark, along with one light on and in a big house. Wait, did I mention I was alone? I might suggest that , you might not want to do that. I’m just sayin…

Just let me be frank with you here. Okay, wait. I still want to be me. Here goes. I honestly love watching TV, and I know what would make for a good show, or movie. And as I was reading this, I was just so totally freaking out all through it, I could totally visualize everything. I know this book would be amazing as a Movie, you seriously need to read it, because you know it goes. When they turn books into Movies, they ruin them. And if the words are this good, you need to read them now!

Another thing that I loved about this book, was the fact that it is portrayed in Oasis, Florida. As most of you know, I am I currently live in Florida. So I love it when books put Florida, or Ohio on the map, I’m in. 

This book, “The Dead Game” has Vampires, Beachfront property, a scary haunted mansion, dead bodies, romance and of course people. What a unique kind of mix.

But let me tell you, never ever go to a place called: “End house” and never attend a party on a Friday night where the invitation envelopes are black. I mean if that doesn’t just say: “It’s going to get weird.” As a warning, then nothing will. 

I was so impressed, with “The Dead Game”, I couldn’t put it down. I give it five stars, it was just that exciting. If you’re anything like me, and enjoy horror, with a kick, then you need to read this. And you better be ready to get comfortable, because you’re not going to want to put this book down! It’s just that enjoyable. 

TO BE OR NOT TO BE

TO BE OR NOT TO BE

To be or not to be a writer.
This has been the hardest question for me.
Should I continue with my pursuit?
Or step away and claim defeat?
One book written.
One book sold.
It dances around on Amazon and Nook.
It reaches new heights in its niche
And then it slowly bows its head in silence.
The highs feel good and lofty,
While the lows feel depressing and sad.
Is it worth it? 
Is it worth the aggravation?
I am told that a writer must keep writing.
More books to dance around.
More highs and lows.
Should I keep doing this?
Will I keep doing this? 
Yes, for now
As I wait for the next high.

This review is from: White Heaven Women (Kindle Edition)
I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review.

White Heaven Women was a wonderful surprise. The imagery of the historic element of this book was so well done and accurate in my opinion. The attitude towards woman, social classes and special needs children is heartbreaking but so true to that era.

The modern aspect of White Heaven Women is also well done. The intertwining of the two is an adventure that I enjoyed very much. The ghosts, reincarnation aspect and just plain strange occurrences give this book an entirely other element that is exciting.

Jessie Tyson gives us an historic element, mystery, paranormal presences and romance. She kept me intrigued and turning pages to find out what would happen next.

You will enjoy meeting Beth, Sally and Constance and the many supporting characters you will fall in love with, especially Patrick. There are also a few you will love to hate. Some just plain cruel and some possessed.

I highly recommend this book for lovers of paranormal with an historic romance element.

INTRODUCING THE CHARACTERS OF THE DEAD GAME

Book Extras from the Shelfari Community

(What’s this?)

Characters (7)

  • Linda Bennett: Owner of the new bookstore/coffee shop, who is very concerned over the way events are unfolding in town. She believes that there are just too many disappearances and deaths being covered up by the sheriff and the reclusive residents.
  • Todd Morrison: Good looking and popular with everyone in town, including Linda and her fellow shop-owners and the mysterious residents on the dark mountain behind town.
  • Charles Wolf: His dark good looks and brooding personality makes him appear unapproachable. What is he doing alone in his mountain retreat?
  • Mike Aronson: Likes to observe people from a distance. At times his sarcastic sense of humor proves to be too harsh for his friends.
  • Father John: Holy man who gets himself involved in some unholy business. He acts innocent but seems to know too much about the cover-ups in town.
  • Shana Logan: She appears happy and cheerful on the outside. But deep down, her thoughts run much deeper and darker.
  • David Deer: The town clown and the butt of all of Mike’s jokes. That is, until one day he can’t take Mike’s morbid humor any longer.
