Book Review-Prey for The Dead: Book Two of The Dead Game Series-Susanne Leist

FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2019
I read The Dead Game by Susanne Leist back in 2016 (see my review here) Although this can be read as a stand-alone I highly suggest you read the first in this series–you will somewhat need the background to understand how it all came about!

Oasis is overrun by Vampires, hybrid vampires and of course, there are also humans who haven’t a clue. One group of Vampires is trying to kill off the other group and I was hard put to figure out who was truly trying to protect the town and who wasn’t. Talk about twists and turns–this novel has MANY.

Then you have two human females who actually do know what is going on–and one of them is being romantically pursued by 2 of the hybrid vampires. She really likes them both–but does she really want to get into a relationship with any kind of vampire?

Lots of action which will keep you wondering and reading until you have finished the book!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

A long-buried secret emerges from the ruins of End House…

Five years of peace has ended for the residents of Oasis. Evil returns to wreak havoc on the seaside resort.

Linda Bennett’s dreams of happiness have always eluded her. Five years ago, she moved to Florida from New York to escape heartache. The Dead vampires and their leader, Wolf, had ruined any hopes of peace for her and her friends. Surrounded by vampires and hybrids–human vampires, Linda finds solace in her bookstore. Then one morning, the lights go out and an explosion rocks her shop and any future dreams for a happy ending.

Have The Dead and Wolf returned to exact their revenge on Oasis?

Linda and her close friends–Shana, David, and Louise–race to where lightning converges on an isolated spot behind the town. A sinkhole replaces End House’s former site. Around the hole stand The Watchers–the vampire police, the group of five hybrids, and The Elders–the local vampire leaders. Echoing from inside the dark pit are the voices of Father John, the vampire hunter, and Abe, the head Watcher. Trapped with them in the tunnels below Oasis is the magical door that controls time.

From this moment, Linda and Shana become embroiled in the twisted escapades of Todd, Sheriff Sam, and The Elders as they search for The Dead at an exclusive club in Disney World. Death and mayhem follow their every step. A masquerade ball and a romp through the tunnels lead to a showdown in the swamps of southern Florida.

Can Linda choose between Gregg and Todd–the two hybrids who compete for her heart and are at war on opposing sides? Will she find her happy ending?

Will Oasis survive the battle between good and evil?

About the Author: (from Amazon)
I have always loved to read. Agatha Christie, Alistair Maclean, Robert Ludlum, and many other authors filled my young imagination with intrigue and mystery. When I wasn’t reading late into the night, the TV shows–Murder She Wrote and Columbo–entertained me with tales of murder and suspense.

Over the years, my taste in TV expanded to include such shows as Supernatural and The Originals. I searched for paranormal, murder mysteries but found few at the library or bookstore. So, I wrote one.

The Dead Game, Book One of The Dead Game series, brings fantasy and the surreal to the classic murder mystery with dead bodies, suspects, and clues. It offers vampires, vampire derivatives, and a touch of romance to spice the motley mix.

The story continues in Book Two, Prey for The Dead, as The Dead vampires use an exclusive club in Disney World to infiltrate the rich and famous. As The Dead grow in power, not even the bright sunshine of Florida can weaken them. Linda, my main character, and her friends join forces with human vampires–known as hybrids–to defeat the evil threatening to control Oasis. A masquerade ball and a romp through the tunnels beneath the town lead to a showdown in the swamps of southern Florida.

A career in writing has been a big leap for me. Accustomed to the number-crunching field of budgeting and the hectic commodity markets, I left my first career and M.B.A. in Finance behind to pursue my dream. I do not regret my foray into literature for one moment. Fellow authors helped me make my way through the competitive field. I write every day and even tried my hand at poetry. If someone tells you it’s too late in life to try something different, they are wrong. It is never too late to follow your heart.

REVIEW ON THE EXAMINER BY RHONDA CRATTY  
We know we can rouse our children’s interests in reading with intriguing age-appropriate mystery books. Reading mysteries makes your child’s imagination run wild. In place of having all the characters and facts presented to them, mystery books allow children to imagine what the characters look like – to imagine places and events, and put together pieces of the puzzle as the mystery unfolds in detail. While your little one is reading their books,-you deserve a book full of suspense, lots of twists and turns that have you practically bouncing on the couch.

The Dead Game by Susanne Leist might be just the mystery book for parents.

The Dead Game by Susanne Leist is a mysterious supernatural thriller with plenty of twists and turns that is well-written and keeps you turning the page. From the first page you start a wild ride and just when you think all is well, she throws in another twist.

The story begins as Linda moves to a small town to open a bookstore and makes new friends. She finds the town of Oasis is filled with picturesque streets, and sunny white-sand beaches. Life in Oasis is a paradise- until the dead body washes up on shore.

Linda learns that dead bodies and disappearing tourists are common for this town. As soon as the sun sets, the residents are stalked by dark shadows. Is it ghosts, werewolves, vampires or some crazy murderer playing some terrible games? Linda, her friends and shop owners decide to take it upon themselves to find out what is happening in their town and that’s when the scary stuff starts to happen.

Invited to the “End House” for a party, Linda and her friends are pursued through revolving rooms, terrifying illusions and dangerous traps. Escaping with their lives comes with a price as two of their friends remain trapped in the house.

THE DEAD GAME has begun as they start their unnatural journey, will there be an end to this game? Or is this just the beginning? THE DEAD GAME http://amzn.to/1lKvMrP

Pray for the victims.

Pray for the town.

But don’t forget

to pray for The Dead.

They return to Oasis.

No one will be safe

from their wrath.

Hold onto your faith.

Seek shelter from the storm. 

For the demons of hell

will soon rise.

Trust no one.

Not your friends

nor loved ones.

Hell will open its doors

and release its worst.

BOOK TWO WILL BE RELEASED SOON

STAND AND FIGHT

  

No one can hear 

our screams of fear.

As the clock strikes midnight

we prepare to take flight.

Soon human blood will pour.

There’s nothing left to live for

unless we stand and fight

with all our hearts and might.
