My Soul To Keep (yresruN semyhR) by [Sonnenberg, Jackie]

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep,
If I shall die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take…

When thirteen-year-old Sky Monroe arrives at her new boarding school, all she can think about is death and connecting with the afterlife. Soon she discovers her school’s spirituality group called Guardians of Light—and they have a secret.
The Guardians of Light can speak with the dead…

When Mitchell Brooks, the teacher and leader of the group, reveals this unnerving secret to Sky—though this is exactly what she believed she wanted—she learns the organization is rapidly becoming a cult. Now she’s concerned she and her friend Damien will not be permitted to walk away.
Danger and death lurk around every corner…

The campus house, where Sky resides, is haunted, and the spirits have their own agenda. December 21, 2012 threatens the end of the world, and Mitchell and the spirits have special plans in store. They just might bring Sky closer to the afterlife—and possibly beyond—than she ever imagined.

Sky is looking for a connection to the afterlife, but what she finds may be more than she bargained for…because what lies after life is death.

Between the Devil and the Darkness by [Spencer, Lindy]

Welcome, come in. Make yourself comfortable. I invite you to take a journey through these pages as they temporarily draw back the gauze veil that separates us from what crawls around in the dark of night, as well as that which brushes your sleeve as it passes by, unnoticed, on a crowded sidewalk in broad daylight.

Glimpse quickly, lest any one of the myriad of evils takes notice. Such happenstance could lead to, let’s say, unpleasantness? The tales within represent the tiniest fraction of the evils present all around us. Before you go further, a warning: what once is known cannot be unknown.

It’s time. Come quickly, if you dare. Turn the page. Allow me to call your attention to what lies between the devil and the darkness.

TRIGGER (Devil's Reach Book 1) by [Drake, J.L.]

***This book ends with a small cliffhanger. Intended for 18+. May contain Triggers.***

I was raised by the Devil himself.

Formed into a man who was unreachable.

I went from the boy with bruises to the man with a trigger.

Killing is the only thing that calms the itch.

The demons inside were a constant battle…

…until she changed everything.

Problem is when you spend most of your time in the dark, is it smart to step into the light?

AM13 Corrected - High Resolution

“No, no, I’m not showing any signs of the virus, it’s just a migraine, I think.”

Please don’t start thinking that I’m infected, I know how you treat the virus victims!

“Okay, Katie. Thank you for letting me know. Hopefully we’ll see you tomorrow.”

“Most definitely.”

As I hang up the phone, ice cold relief courses through my veins. After another night of sitting up, reading, and generally just racking my brain, I just can’t face it. Plus, I need more time with these pictures to work out what I’m going to do next. It’s all well-and-good looking through all this stuff until my eyes hurt, but I’m no further along with my ideas. I still don’t know how I’m going to save the world.

But first, before I can do any more thinking, I need to sleep. Luckily the exhaustion did make sound terrible on the phone so I’m sure I pulled off my lie, but now I need to get rid of it. I want to wake up with a clearer head.

I stagger into my bedroom and crash onto my bed, pressing my face into the mattress as I go. It won’t be long until the blackness of sleep comes for me, I just hope that it’s peaceful and I actually wake up rested…


Where’s that alarm coming from? What’s that smell? Why do I feel more afraid than I’ve ever done before in my life?

I try to move my head but it feels stuck, like I still have the crick in it from sleeping across my desk. But if I can’t move then how am I supposed to find out what’s making me feel this way? Is something pinning me down?

My heart rate kicks up a notch, I can almost feel the tight knot of panic starting to coil in my chest. I hate this feeling, the lack of control, it reminds me of when I learned that Mom was sick. All I wanted to do was help her, and with my medical knowledge I should’ve been able to. But of course, I couldn’t. There was nothing that I could do to stop her from dying.

Ever since then, I’ve craved control.

“Help me,” I rasp. Why is my mouth so dry? “Someone, please!”

“Katie.” The voice that answers me sounds weirdly hollow, and also a bit like…my mom.

Not that it could possibly be my mom, of course. I haven’t gone crazy just yet!

“Help me…whoever you are, I’m stuck.”

The ghostly voice doesn’t answer me. All I can hear now is growling. The thick smoggy scent of death wafts up my nostrils only freaking me out even more. I recognize that smell, it reminds me of them. The infected that I’m trying to save.

I can almost feel them around me, they’re coming for me. I don’t know how I know it, but I can sense that this isn’t a friendly visit. They haven’t come to say ‘thank you so much for trying to save us from death’. No, they want me.

Course, paper-like skin brushes against my thigh making me jump. I try to scream, to get the attention of the person I could hear before, but my throat’s closed over now. I can’t even breathe, never mind yell.

I gasp, I suck in air as fast as I can, but it isn’t enough. I’m dying, I’m going to die right here not knowing what’s going on around me. They are going to kill me.

Oh God, no. I squeeze my eyes shut and beg. Not like this, please…
