“'You want to know which one I am, where I fit into the timeline of broken lives. Does it matter? We all share the same story, even if our killers are different, and we want to tell you our secrets. But that's the thing with whispers. You have to listen closely to hear us.' Inspired by a real location, Dark Roads by Chevy Stevens is a quietly compelling read full of chilling details and betrayals. The story is told through two converging timelines and centers on two young women who need to find answers before more girls go missing. Content warnings for murder, descriptions of human remains, stalking, pedophelia, death of loved ones, torture, assault, harm to animals”Faith, Page 158 Books
“This amazing debut novel opens with 11 year old twin girls cold, scared and alone late at night at a Scottish harbor in Edinburgh. All they will say are their first names and that they are waiting for a pirate ship. Twenty years later one of the twins, Catriona, is back in Scotland, for the first time in over 10 years. She is there because her twin, Ellice, has disappeared at sea and is presumed dead. Cat is sure that she would know if El is dead, even though they had not spoken in 10 years. She has come back to see what games El is now playing, because El was good at playing games and getting what she wanted. Cat’s search for answers takes her back to their childhood and the fantasy world of pirates, witches and clowns that she and El created in a hidden part of their house which they called Mirrorland. Memories which Cat thought were all part of their fantasy world suddenly become part of her current reality and in order to find out what happened to El she must finally face the reality of their tragic childhood, and separate out fiction from the facts she has refused to remember. Mirrorland is a modern day gothic where every page brings a new surprise. A surprise which will have you wondering what is real and what isn’t in this unusual, scary and surprisingly atmospheric novel which touches on horrible abuse, a mother’s desperate efforts to save her children, love, betrayal and above all else the bonds between sisters–especially twins.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction
The Final Girl Support Group

The Only Good Indians
“I loved this book. Jones has a unique narrative voice, allowing ‘the entity’ to step in and take over unexpectedly, amping up the horror. Also, each character has a distinct voice that brings them to life. Jones combines the culture and traditions of the Blackfeet and Crow people with the social truths of their contemporary life. It is refreshingly different from any other horror novel I’ve read. This book is gruesome and honestly scary. I couldn’t put it down.”Kristine Jelstrom-Hamill, Buttonwood Books and Toys

Cara Gee gives voice to Jade in such a way that I honestly can't imagine anyone else reading this now. It's an absolute pleasure to listen to her read this!”Becky, BookBar
