When her best friends go missing, her mom's prized garden is threatened, and a fake meter reader breaks into her home, she will put everything on the line to get out alive.

Brooklyn Brujas: Book #3
“Rose Mortiz is coming into her powers, powers that are different from the ones she’s always thought she had. So, she’s dealing with that, the return of her long lost father, and all of her sister’s drama (as detailed in the first two Brooklyn Bruja books which are also excellent). During her death day celebration, she realizes her father’s amnesia is a lie, then gets ambushed then sucked into Adas, the fairy realm. She is forced to work for their king saving the realm from a malignant force that is destroying the land. Rose is an amazing hero. She is intelligent, flawed, and funny. Her take on the world around her is refreshingly honest for a fantasy character. This journey of growth is a perfect addition to the Brooklyn Brujas series.”Izzy, Off the Beaten Path
The Other Black Girl
“This is the tale of two Black women co-workers in the cutthroat publishing industry trying to determine if they are friends or enemies. A literary fiction tale with a side of suspense, this expertly woven critique on society is bound to keep readers on the edge of their seats.”Kirsten Wilson, The Snail on the Wall
The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires
“I don’t know about everyone else, but I, for one, am really excited that vampires are making a comeback. I think they’re such a fun trope in pretty much every genre, and this was no exception. True to the Grady Hendrix style, this book was the perfect campy, slightly off-kilter, and moderately gory suburban horror story I didn’t know I needed.”Kendall, Brilliant Books Audio
The Final Girl Support Group
“What if gruesome murders like that of I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream, or The Texas Chain Saw Massacre actually took place? What then happens afterward to the girls who survive the ridiculous combination of crazy guy, improvised weapon, and spooky setting? Nearly 2 decades after their respective brushes with death, these “final girls” still meet in an unamusing church basement in hopes of moving on. But when one of their own ends up dead, it’s possible their pasts have finally come for them. The Final Girl Support Group is a frenzied ride through horror movie tropes come to life. Fans of ‘80s and ‘90s slasher films will get a kick out of this satire mixed with realistic characters and topped off with ample servings of crazy. Grady Hendrix has outdone himself with this novel that runs both hard and fast, as well as realistic and over the top. An entertaining commentary on the slasher genre, through and through.”Nicholas, Mysterious Galaxy Books

The Ex Hex
If you enjoyed Practical Magic, then you’ll love The Ex Hex.
“This book elicits the perfect cozy, witchy vibe that you crave in October (or all year round). It's the mashup of Sabrina the Teenage Witch (Melissa Joan Hart edition) and Hocus Pocus that I didn't know I needed. It's silly but narrator Caitlin Davies had me smiling on my work commute and immediately magicked up a kitschy Halloween movie marathon after I finished the book. Now I just need Erin Sterling to release a sequel every October until I die!”Kimi, Buttonwood Books and Toys
This blood-curdling tale of blood-thirsty vampires continues to hold audiences spellbound more than a century after its publication.

The Last House on Needless Street
“This one lives up to the hype. Although there are numerous points where the story is revealed to be something quite different from what it appeared, you won't remember it just because the plot twists left your head spinning, but rather because of the fascinating, exquisitely-voiced narrators (including, yes, the gay Christian housecat) and haunting atmosphere. The audiobook is excellent -- Ragland invents a convincing and unique voice for each character, and when the emotions of the story run raw, his voice carries that intensity. If you are looking for a straightforward horror story, you might be disappointed, but if you're looking for something strange, beautiful, and unexpected you'll enjoy your time in this house.”Graham, Next Chapter Booksellers
