Donna had never been like other girls.

She was raised by her enigmatic grandmother, who held séances in her parlor, mystifying strangers who came to their home on smoky summer nights seeking messages from deceased loved ones.

Year later, she’s settled into a normal life with her husband Joe, and attending art school at Castell Community College in the evenings with her best friend Andrea. But Castell is much more than a school.

Once home to a children’s hospital, the ghosts of the restless dead still roam the darkened hallways, and now they want something from Donna…and they’ll stop at nothing to get it…

DarkFuse Weekly Deal: HELL GATE by Elizabeth Massie

Now at Amazon, you can get the Kindle edition of Hell Gate by Elizabeth Massie at Amazon for $2.99 for the next 2 days (it’s regular price is $4.99).  This price is good until Tuesday, November 5th, 9 PM EST.

Hell Gate“A Thrill Ride Of Historic Proportions…Like Stephen King, Massie proves regularly—and here once again—that horror doesn’t rely on vampires or zombies, and that it doesn’t need to rely on the completely inexplicable or unscientific; rather, all horror requires is the thoughts and behaviors of human beings.” —Marakay Rogers, BWW Reviews

The year is 1909. Coney Island is a wild, bright, malodorous, noisy, and garish place, luring work-weary folks in with its dangerous roller coasters, bizarre shows, tantalizing displays, and promises of “improper” gaiety to be remembered. Suzanne Heath, a ticket-seller for Luna Park’s amusements and a reluctant psychic, has been called in by police Lieutenant Granger to help find and stop a murderer whose victims have been hideously mutilated. Suzanne feels compelled and obligated to offer her assistance even as doing so recalls memories of her childhood and youth when her psychic talents only brought about rejection, heartache, and pain.

Suzanne’s one true friend is Cittie Parker, a young man who ran away from the Colored Waifs’ Asylum and now performs as a bloodthirsty Zulu drummer in Dreamland. He knows of her abilities and fears for her safety. As Suzanne digs deeper into the grisly Coney Island murders and her own past, she finds herself and Cittie caught up in a nightmare where worlds converge and collide, where death gleefully beckons and insanity grins like a devil at the gate of hell.

“Hell Gate is one of the most strongly plotted, intelligently written, and emotionally gut-wrenching horror novels you will read this year…will certainly claim the top slot of many readers ‘top ten’ lists of this year.”

—TT Zuma, Horror World

DarkFuse Releases HELL’S DOOR by Sandy DeLuca

Now available for immediate download to your Kindle…

Hell's Door

Detective Lacy Powers and her partner John Demmings are stalking a sadistic killer down the rainy streets and back alleys of Providence. Together they go undercover into a dark and perverse subculture, where pimps, hookers and sexual deviants gather at an underground nightclub called Hell’s Door. There they come face-to-face with their prime suspect, a charismatic and dangerous woman named Ramsay Wolfe.

But Ramsay might be working in concert with a tortured soul who calls himself Gabriel, an elusive drifter who records each detail of the killings, leaving notebook pages spattered with victims’ blood as evidence.

As the headless bodies and blood-soaked crime scenes continue to mount, Lacey and John have few leads and minimal evidence. Will they catch the real killer before it’s too late…or will they meet their demise at Hell’s Door?

“Hell’s Door is a terrifying journey into the inner workings of a shattered mind, one that is brutally efficient, smart and on a mission to save the souls of broken women…Sandy continues her string of outstanding books published by DarkFuse and this just might be her most dark and depraved work yet.”
—Peter Schwotzer, Literary Mayhem

“Achieves a rare combination of horrifying imagery that made my stomach turn with a far deeper terror that resonated in my mind. Hell’s Door shows that DeLuca is a true master of horror.”
—Josef Hernandez, Examiner

“Hell’s Door may very well be the best, the darkest, and the most perverse serial killer tale or police procedural that I have read in a very long time.”
—Bob Milne, Beauty in Ruins

Conjure House

Conjure House by Gary Fry

The village of Deepvale has a sinister past. Built in the 1400s, it has been home to a number of sordid characters, including Peter Suman, known locally as ‘The Conjurer’ due to the diabolical experiments he was rumored to have conducted during the 19th Century, in a dark old house beside a lake.

In the 1990s, after a bet with his elder brother and three friends, seven-year-old Simon Mallinson goes missing inside the now derelict Conjurer’s House.

Fifteen years later, his brother Anthony is back in Deepvale, following the brutal deaths of his parents. And strange events have begun to occur in the village again, including the apparent return of young Simon and his creepy new friends. Worse still, Peter Suman appears to be back, too, bent on achieving what he failed to do over a hundred years earlier…

Conjure House, a novel of cosmic terror from Gary Fry.

MANHATTAN GRIMOIRE, the terrifying new novel by Sandy DeLuca

Gina has seen strange visions since childhood. Her mother was considered insane for having the same affliction, and before her disappearance, Gina’s sister Allie was obsessed with black magic and “saw” things too. It eventually led her to a depraved conjurer known as Mojo DeCanne, a man who possessed a book of demonic spells Allie stole and hid in Gina’s apartment in the days before she vanished. Now, as Manhattan braces for the worst snowstorm in decades, and Gina’s visions become worse, blurring the lines between nightmare and reality, Mojo DeCanne has come looking for what is his. In order to solve the mystery of her sister’s disappearance and the meaning behind her own shattered life, Gina must first survive the night and somehow stop an unimaginable evil from fulfilling its horrific destiny. Darkness falls on Manhattan. The blizzard grows worse. And the lights go out.
