"With SCAVENGERS Fulbright and Hawkes bite all the way to the bone. This is a raw and savage zombie thriller."-Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Dead of Night and Dust and Decay "In the endless sea of zombie novels, SCAVENGERS stands out like an amputated thumb. Fulbright and Hawkes bring what zombie fans expect . . . yet add enough of their own flavor to make this overpopulated subgenre fresh and exciting."-The Horror Fiction Review "ELDERWOOD MANOR was one of the few novellas I read this year that really managed to creep me out. Definitely recommended."-I Heart Reading "ELDERWOOD MANOR is a great haunted house/dark family secrets/evil-has-tainted-this-place story. There are no slow points. From a graceful, foreboding opening, the tension is ratcheted up at just the right points and the suspense is kept at the perfect pitch. This book kept me on my toes, wide-eyed and fingers-crossed almost from beginning to end."-Coffee and Book Addict.com "Dark and atmospheric horror . . . very scary."-The Examiner "Striking touches of originality . . . it engendered a shudder or two."-Black Static Magazine #41

NIGHT WRAITH, by Christopher Fulbright and Angeline Hawkes is a supernatural horror novel combining some incredibly detailed scenes of carnage, as well as a great depth of characterization and emotional turmoil.
It's been six years since Police Chief Gavin Wagner and his teenage daughter, Carly, lost their wife/mother, Beth, to a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Aside from Beth's battle with bi-polar and depression, there were additional factors involved that Gavin chose to keep from his daughter. Carly, now maturing into a beautiful woman with plans of an eventual marriage to her boyfriend, Ethan, has her own thoughts and beliefs regarding the supernatural:
". . . she felt in a way she couldn't explain that something existed outside the realm of normal perception; . . . a sense of energy that can't be seen or touched . . ."
Her best friend, Abigail, has an even larger belief in powers untapped, as her declining homelife has thrust her into this new pursuit of knowledge.
When the first unnatural deaths begin occurring in Carson Lake--with witnesses claiming a greenish glow infused with malevolent energy was the cause, eventually even the police have to admit: ". . . at some point in a lawman's career, if he does it long enough, he'll come across something that doesn't make a . . . bit of sense any other way than crazy. Or supernatural . . . "
Through this entire novel, Fulbright and Hawkes give their characters true depth--personalities, emotions, desires--all of these traits enhance these individuals and add a three-dimensional, life-like feel to them, making their actions and reactions all the more plausible. As we journey along with them, we uncover more to the story and the emergence of the hate-fueled, vicious "Night Wraith", than even Chief Gavin was aware of.
While the body count rises, the deaths get more "creative" and gruesome--with outstanding descriptions and details. Our characters must strive to unravel the mystery behind the Wraith, re-open old wounds, and search for help in the most unlikely of places. It is stated that: "There is no magician who considers himself evil. There are men and women who seek to saturate themselves in whatever supreme force unifies the cosmos . . . who envision their places as gods themselves . . . the driving force behind mastering external, or supernatural, forces, is a hunger for power."
Once this malevolent power is unleashed, will it be possible to ever contain the fury that has gotten out and escaped into this realm?
An outstanding novel of supernatural and occult lore, complete with detailed scenes that you can practically "see", and complex characters who infuse the story with a sense of realism.
Note: I received an ARC of this book for review. I fully intend to purchase the published version for my library... it's that good!
All the best,
