Shadows over Somerset by Bob Freeman

Source: I received an e-copy for review
Michael Somers is brought to Cairnwood, an isolated manor in rural Indiana, to sit at the deathbed of a grandfather he never knew existed. He soon finds himself drawn into a strange and esoteric world filled with werewolves, vampires, witches… and a family curse that dates back to fourteenth century Scotland.In the sleepy little town of Somerset, an ancient evil awakens, hungering for blood and vengeance… and if Michael is to survive he must face his inner demons and embrace his family’s dark past.

Shadows over Somerset is a very entertaining and fast paced-read. Werewolves, Vampires and Witches Oh my! Yes Shadows over Somerset has them all.

Eventhough it is set in the modern day it read like a historical which went very well with the gothic feel. The whole setting and world building were amazing. I liked the story itself very much 


Death's Dance by Crymsyn Hart

Series: Deathly Encounters Series #1
Genre: Horror

Being a psychic, you would think talking to the dead was a walk in the park. However, it’s not always that simple. The hooded specter haunting me is one I’ve been dreaming about since I was a kid. One day, he appeared in my bedroom mirror. Good. Evil. I don’t know what his true intentions are.Enter Jackson, ghost hunting show host extraordinaire, and my ex, to save me from the big bad ghost.
From there…well…it’s been a world wind of complications. My house burnt down. I’m being stalked by an ancient evil and gotten myself back into the world of being a ghost hunting psychic. Jackson dragged me, along with a few other psychics, to a ghost town wiped off the map called Death’s Dance.
From there things went from bad to worse.

Death's Dance is a promising start of a new series. It has all the ingredients (yeah also the corny ones) for a good horror. Unfortunately it also has a big flaw. 

I read Death's Dance in one sitting, at night. I like to read these books at night and this one shoud be read at night. I truly liked the world created by Crymsyn. Trying to figure out if the hooded specter is good or evil, the ghost town, the ex ├žoming to 'the rescue', some "don't do it" and "don't go in there" scenes, it all worked. All the right vibes for a Horror.
