My Review of The Dead Game by Susanne Leist

A Haunted House with a Vengeance

Vampires live disguised in a small town in Florida, mixing with the population. Newcomer Linda opens a bookshop and befriends Shana, who has an esoteric shop. There are young men and a blonde bimbo to go out with – and everything is fine until they get an invitation to a party at End House.

In Ms Leist’s village, there are several unexpected species. The hybrids, half-human, and half-vampire, are difficult to single out. Then there are two groups of vampires, one of them working to protect humans and hybrids. The other group, the DEAD, wants to take over the world and rid it of human beings. Of course, the humans just want to live normal lives. Also, the village, and especially, End house, is full of illusions, some resembling the scary house in a fairground, except for the fact that they are armed with real predators and flying saws just to mention a few. The horror isn’t absent, but it is accompanied by not a few winks. It was an entertaining read that gave an insight into the antics of humans – let alone the vampires.

HEART AND SOUL

Amidst the flowers and sunshine of Florida

lies an evil so deadly, few speak of it.

The residents of Oasis chose to fight it.

Will they lose their hearts or souls to it?

PREY FOR THE DEAD

AN OASIS IN THE SWAMPLAND

In the clearing ahead,

stands The Watchers’ mansion.

Not a mirage,

but an oasis in the swampland.

THE DEAD AT HEART

RIDE THE WAVE

I ride the waves to their full height.

I fight The Dead with all my might.

This is the perfect town for me

where vampires roam the nights free.

THE DEAD GAME

READ A BOOK BY THE SEA

Open the book to see

How much fun it can be

To explore the unknown.

Do I hear a big groan?

Just you wait and see

How right I can be.

A PERFECT OASIS

A perfect oasis on the shore.
You could not ask for anything more.
Sun and surf during the day,
But at night there’s hell to pay.
The waves welcome daily swimmers,
But at night there are no winners.
Afraid to venture out after dark,
Residents stay clear of the town park.
One night, a hanging party was had
By the dark creatures who are plain bad.
Our town is plagued by darkness and woe.
We don’t even know who is our foe.

WHERE HAVE THE TOURISTS GONE?

Where has all the sunshine gone?

Gone hiding.

Where have all the vampires gone?

Gone dancing.

Where have all the tourists gone?

Dead and gone.

DARK PETALS

Woven from black sheets of rain,
fear covers in disarray.
Anguished and frozen with pain,
dark petals fall in dismay.
Hell has come to Oasis,
The Dead & gone at its side.
Now hidden behind faces
that are well-known far & wide.

PREY FOR THE DEAD

SNOW IS FALLING

Snow is falling on the trees,

hanging tight to the cold leaves.

A winter wonderland in the south.

I gaze ahead and open my mouth.

A bitter taste fills my heart & soul

as I plunge into the rabbit hole.
