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.

DARKEST FANTASIES COME TO LIFE

There is something not quite right.
Meetings are held at midnight.
Dark shadows creep the street.
You don’t know whom you’ll meet.
Take me from here.
The Dead, I can’t bear.

CAN I RESIST HIM?

1 Prey cold vampire closer

 

Can I resist a love that transcends the generations?

His love freezes my heart.

Can I turn my face from his beauty?

His eyes burn red with passion.

Can I harden my heart?

His heart beats next to mine.

Can I resist him?

THERE IS NOTHING TO FEAR

1 Nothing to fear

 

 

You tell me there’s nothing to fear

since The Dead will soon be here.

Waves cascade to the shore.

I don’t believe The Dead’s lore.

Nothing can ruin this paradise.

Yet, cold fear runs through me like ice.

Now, the winds quicken their speed.

But I still refuse to heed.

I give a last glance at the trees,

and they are falling to their knees.

RUN LIKE THE WIND

wolves

 

Do not come near.
I see it here.
The evil comes to town.
Don’t wear a big frown.

You must leave right away.
The Dead have come to stay.
No one will be left alive.
A death for those who arrive.

Blood will rule the day.
Leave, you cannot stay.
In a town slated for death,
Do not stop and take a breath.

Run now like the wind to safety.
Make sure your retreat is hasty.
I have come to warn you.
They are coming for you.

FALLING

Falling

 

Into the tunnel, we are thrown.

Been more careful if I had known.

 

We’re falling down a dark abyss.

Please, someone, give us an assist.

 

We’re falling too hard and fast.

This nightmare better not last.

 

Our time has come to an end

As we fly around the bend.

 

The Dead are waiting for us below.

I can hear them yelling out hello.

 

We land with a thump and a bang.

I’m now facing a big fat fang.

 

THE DEAD GAME

 

ROLLING WAVES

 

 

The waves roll to shore

With a bang.

A barrage of water

To lift the debris,

To clear the way.

For The Dead.
