THE VOICE

 

The evil lies within.

Each of us has the voice.

The voice enticing us to be bad.

It offers suggestions for revenge.

Immoral ways to succeed.

It never sleeps.

It appears in our nightmares.

Forever ready to lead us

down dark pathways.

Always on the hunt for

new followers.

We don’t have to feed it.

But let it starve.

THE HUNT

It first comes slowly
in the dead of night.
Walking on silent feet,
it draws near.
You run faster,
but it speeds up.
You dash into a building,
an empty school.
It soon follows,
bringing with it a silence.
You can feel its presence
as it moves closer.
It follows you
down the deserted hallway.
You check the doors.
You jiggle the knobs.
They’re all locked.
​You turn around
and stand strong.
Darkness falls
to encompass all.

5 STAR REVIEW OF THE DEAD GAME         

5.0 out of 5 stars deliberately leads the reader into a Pandora’s Box, creating a paradoxical effect that is most imaginative and rare…….., February 17, 2015 

By Amaria – See all my reviews

This review is from: The Dead Game (Paperback) 
Usually I don’t like vampire stories, their trite and Susanne Leist’s “The Dead Game” is like a scavenger hunt with a twist of the board game “Clue”. Every character is like a chess piece and just when you think you’ve got checkmate, you realize the game isn’t over yet. Leist has added a refreshing twist with this with a lot of plot twists which prolongs the suspense aspect which keeps the intrigue intense. It’s like Hollywood story meets “The Munsters.” Starting with the haunted house deliberately leads the reader into a Pandora’s Box, creating a paradoxical effect that is most imaginative and rare. Very creative!

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 Oasis. 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 community filled with secrets. The forest behind town wakes up at night with parties and strange guests. Are the original residents, living in the dark woods, responsible for the deaths and disappearances? 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.

A MAN

The Dogfather 🌹

I’m a man.

No a wolf.

I have feelings.

I roam the night.

I hunger for her.

I walk on all four.

I need her love.

I yearn for freedom.

I am man.

I will win her love.

THE HUNT

It first comes slowly.
In the dead of night.
Walking on silent feet.
It draws closer.
You run faster.
It speeds up.
You dash into a building.
An empty school.
It soon follows.
It brings with it a silence.
You can feel its presence.
Coming closer.
It’s now moving quickly.
Down the deserted hallway.
You check the doors.
They are all locked.
You turn.
Close your eyes.
And stand strong.
Darkness descends.
To encompass all.

 
 

OUR GAMES HAVE JUST BEGUN — THE DEAD GAME — PART 45

Do my eyes deceive me?
Can this be true?
A creature is stalking me
Through the dark streets of town.

Eyes black as night.
Cries as soft as the wind.
Sharp claws tapping a sad melody.
It draws closer to me still.

The mansion’s gates yawn open for me.
My feet leave tracks in the mud.
Handprints where I fall in my haste.
Salty tears on the rocks.

The mansion waits in its dark glory
For the innocent and weary.
It sheds its shell like a caterpillar,
But no butterfly does it become.

The creature gains ground.
Stalking in its feline way.
Whiskers in the wind,
Leading its way to me.

One last stumble for me.
My knees graze the rocks.
My fingers climb the steps,
Digging deep into the dirt.

I turn one last time.
The dark one stands up.
Becoming taller and straighter.
On two feet it stands tall.

Its yellow eyes glimmer black.
No whiskers to follow my scent.
White skin for black fur.
Laughter falls from its lips.

He has come for me one last time.
He walks on muscled legs.
Sure and strong is his gait.
For no more does he crawl.

“Come to me!” he says.
“No more games for us to play.”
His hand reaches for mine
As I wait for this game to end.

“I refuse to belong to you.”
My voice shakes in despair.
I will not be a follower
Of The Dead and long gone.

The house swallows me whole.
I am hidden inside its walls.
A maze of rooms for shelter.
Darkness to shield me from harm.
