THE BLUE WAVE

 

A blue wave of ocean.

Coming closer to shore.

Bringing with it darkness.

And yet still so much more.

 

I’m tempted to ride it.

Take it to the limit.

I want to see its strength

And if it’s a gimmick.

 

The blue is almost transparent.

A glass of cold water for me.

Hitting me in the face with salt.

Lifting me as high as can be.

 

Goodbye to the town of Oasis.

Goodbye to my perfect paradise.

Squashed by the hand of The Dead and gone.

By a mere roll of the deadly dice.

 

THE DEAD GAME by Susanne Leist

THE DEAD TAKE NO PRISONERS

A light glows from the gazebo.

Chanting floats on the howling wind.

Lit candles form a circle inside.

A body dangles in their midst,

swaying in the increasing winds.

Dark figures circle the body.

Their hands raised in prayer.

The Dead Game has begun.

THE DEAD GAME

RIDE WITH ME

 

A ride to hell and back.

I will sit in the back.

We fly through the night air.

Sound barriers we tear.

Demons fly by our side.

I have nowhere to hide.

They take us to their lair.

I’m pulled hard by my hair.

Life is over for me.

I’ll never be set free.

AWESOME

I just found this review on Goodreads! Awesome.

Trang Tran (Bookidote)‘s review

It was amazing
Read from November 13 to 22, 2015


Wow this novel is so precious ! It introduces us to a little town Oasis where tourists disappear without a trace, murders here and there but the local police always trying to hide them. Linda and her friends got invited to a mysterious party in the End House and that’s the beginning of their adventures. Everything I love about a book is in here. The storyline is beyond perfect , with a chess game vibe where everyone is pawn and the reader has no idea what is going on so we are living the game with them. Hellooo, plot twists! Especially the romance plot. Didn’t see it happen at all. Mystery,thriller and action, I’m sure any young adult reader will love this one :)! 

Thank you to the author for giving me a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Title: The Dead Game

Author: Susanne Leist

 

The Book Fair is coming to the town of Oasis on the northern coast of Florida. A dead body washes ashore. The police search through the sand for clues. Where is Agatha Christie when you need her? Linda and her friends are afraid. Deaths and disappearances are happening too often in their town. Will they figure out who is controlling their small town? Who is playing the evil game, The Dead Game?

 

I’m a mystery lover. And so is my protagonist, Linda Bennett. She opens a bookstore in Oasis, hoping for fantasy and romance. Instead, she finds herself living in a town filled with dark secrets. The forest behind town wakes up at night with parties and strange guests. Are the estate residents responsible for the deaths and disappearances in town? Only The Dead know.

 

The Dead Game is the first book in a trilogy. You can read it as a stand-alone or continue with the story when book two is released in 2017.

Scavenger hunt: 14

 

THE HOUSE IS WINNING

Down we go to the nether reaches of End House.

Where darkness is an ever-changing display.

Of traps, cages, and deep water.

Mazes to confound the curious.

Bottomless pits for the adventurous.

And wild animals for the animal lover.

Will we ever see the light of day?

The house is alive and is winning the game.

DARK AS SIN

 

Friday the 13th is here.

There is nothing to fear.

My gargoyle friends are waiting.

Their stares are somewhat scathing.

But the night is still young.

The noose is already hung.

Bats fly around the old house.

They squeak like a little mouse.

Lightning sizzles as it plays.

Over the dark house it stays.

Thunder rumbles in pain.

Loud noises but no rain.

The door opens wide.

There’s no place to hide.

We might as well go in.

inside looks dark as sin.

The Dead Game – Susanne Leist (5 Stars )

Linda opens up a bookstore in the normal seaside town of Oasis, Florida. Making new friends and meeting tourists while starting up her business is a breeze in this tranquil Paradise, but when people start disappearing after sunset, later to be found dead and drained of blood, it is time to figure out what is happening .
When they get a invitation to a party they decide to go and end up in a rickety old house where they have to fight for survival in a cat and mouse game, all while they are stalked my unhuman creatures.
Could this be the end ??
This was a thrilling, vampire Horror, mystery storyline that kept me reading . I was quickly Immersed within this authors original plot line, with entertaining characters and Blood draining creatures from page one .
I felt like I was dropped in the middle of a maze and was trapped and had to find my way out before they found me …deadly consequences resulting !
I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who loves Mystery, Thrillers or vampires.

HORROR ‘TAIL’

 

  1.  

     

    Stay away from here.

    Death I cannot bear.

    I’m telling a horror tale

    with each wag of my fine tail.

    Oasis it is not.

    More of a horror spot.

    Tourists disappear

    into the thin air.

    One day they’re right here.

    Next day they’re nowhere.
