REVIEW! Graveyard Scavenger Hunt by Brian Barnett

Graveyard Scavenger HuntGraveyard Scavenger Hunt by Brian Barnett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this book. Knowing it was a fiction for children of similar age as the main character Pete (12yrs), I expected some gore and some stomach-churning descriptions. To my surprise, I found a truly entertaining story, with colourful characters and a great story line.
Pete, 12-year boy, is left with his grandparents for a week. He finds the whole situation very unsettling; his papaw has got a strange sense of humour, the house is creepy and dilapidated and there’s a graveyard next door.
But dead are just dead. Right?
Pete soon discovers that nothing is as it seems, and he needs to weigh carefully who to trust. On other side, help can come unexpected.
The storyline itself is dynamic and captivating, with entertaining twists. The idea that even monsters hate bad manners made me smile. It makes them somewhat less scary and more human.
All-in-all this is a brilliantly penned story for young readers; however I am sure that ‘ young adults’ would enjoy it too!

A Bloody Tribute

I just have to share this poem. It was written as a tribute to me and posted on where I'm known under the name Blood Countess.
DarkPoetry was the first place where I published some of my poems. I met some great people there who inspired me and some of them have become friends. There I also found my first followers. :)
And I am truly honoured to inspire the work like this. Thank you, Markus!

A Bloody Tribute
By Markus Darkscribe

When the Countess of Blood does not appear
The moonlight beckons inside my ear
It tells of the missing and dimming inside
Of the light and the darkness that you provide

Demons of murder, ghosts in the well
Darken scribes, and nymphs from Hell
All manner of souless, heartless things
And Satan lie weeping neath his wings

The dead rise in tribute, the majick returns
Inspiration once faint, once again burns
Happiness bleeds o'er the blackness once more
So, I hope you will remain in the depravity we adore 

Gothic Poems and Fiction

The long (and longingly) awaited anthology Gothic Poems and Fiction by Static Movement, which will include some of my poetry, went to print!  

Watch out for more information and links.

Counting days now.. :)

REVIEW: Pleasant goosebumps for the hot summer

The Visions of Sandy BrownThe Visions of Sandy Brown by Donald White
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An intense dark tale of hatred and friendship.
Sandy Brown is a typical teenage girl. She likes doing 'girly' things with her friends and hopes that a boy she likes will ask her to a school dance. Then she meets Holder...
The Visions of Sandy Brown is a seemingly light-hearted high school story on the surface; however underneath you discover a dark, twisted entity playing evil chess with human minds with the only one purpose: to take his revenge on those not worthy.
Donald White is a great narrator. The story flows smoothly, Sandy and those around her are likable characters and you can easily empathize with them. Holder, on the other side, is a hateful, revenge-seeking being, emanating the danger with every word.
I particularly appreciated the attention given to Sandy's relationship with her parents; though not always understanding each other, the love between them was truly tangible and perceivable. So was its link to Sandy's confidence and mental strength when it mattered.
In conclusion, if you want an intense dark tale to read during your summer (or any) break, pick this one!

I will wake up one morning
And know I hate it,
When has my life
Got so complicated?

Wherever I look
There's nowhere to turn
I'm on Satan's hook
In Hell I will burn.

My soul crackles in a flame,
It takes a while to feel the pain,
With a hint of sadness deep inside
My remorse and madness coincide.

A demon vulture to me flies
Breathing the despair of my cries
When all of my soul he absorbs
I will be just a peaceful corpse.

Turning (part 2 to First Kill)

Like a zombie
I walk through day
Yet in the night deep
Awake I lay

When the dawn arrives
Its light hurts my eyes
I feel strangely drained
My body aching pain

A week ago
Has all this started
Your kiss left me
So faint-hearted

Since that moment
I cannot sleep
Around in shadows
Always creep

To your calling
I am slave
Your attention
Deeply crave

I am willing
You will find
So bite and turn me
In your kind!

First Kill

Creeping shadows
The darkness form
Out of the twilight 
The night is born

You feel a chill
Your skin is cold
A thrill of kill
Of you got hold

Rising thirst
You need to sate
Your victim first
Will seal your fate

A frightened shriek
She tries to fight
Her defence meek
Yields to your bite

A heavy glaze
In dark green eyes
The palest face
Signs her demise

A lifeless heap 
Flops at your feet
Before you leap
At your next feed

P!NK - Try

My fav song of the moment...gotta love P!NK!
"Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame

Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try try try..."

You hurt me the last time...

I want to scream
Tis' a bad dream
You've done it again
Heartache and pain

You smile to my face
Demean, disgrace
Your back-stabbing trick
Was nasty and slick

Betrayed and down
I wear all fools crown
It's not a game
You hurt me again

I feel such hatred
The love is over-rated
Forsaken, not broken
Words muttered, not spoken

I slowly rise
In front of your eyes
This is my turn
In Hell you will burn

I reach for your heart
Claw it apart
Your shallow breath
A smell of your death

I blew out your light
And now feel alright
My rage away ceased
So you rest in peace!

Scary and fantastic

RefugeRefuge by Jason D. Brawn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I like scary books. I like the feeling of pleasant goosebumps on my skin, while 'living' the story through eyes of the main character. When I read Refuge, tingling chills transmuted into much darker emotion. This book has creeped me out. I have never had much liking for insects of any kind, not even pretty butterflies so the old house infested with creepy-crawlies is THE WORST nightmare. I felt tangibly anxious, yet fascinated. The story enveloped me just like dark woods in it, I felt squeamish and kept checking around me for any sign of creepy-crawlies. I am pleased to say, it is 'just a story'. But absolutely fantastic one!

Bedtime Chills

Now That I've Lost YouNow That I've Lost You by Paul Edwards
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I bought a Kindle edition of this book because I liked the sound of it. When I finally found some time to sit down and read a few days later, I was absorbed instantly into the world of Paul Edwards' imagery. For the next couple of days everything else stalled as if by push of the 'pause' button. I would reside in deserted graveyards, walk around in gloomy streets lighted only by silver moonlight while trying to avoid creatures with very dark eyes.
The pictures skillfully painted with words, association of colours, imaginative characters all brought stories to life. After every story I would proclaim that it was definitely my favourite, only to change my mind after the following one.
Eleonora made me shiver, causing me to feel definitely uneasy while Cure left me intrigued. However in the end it was the first story, with the same title as the book, that has enthralled me. If you, like me, love stories with a twist while being pleasantly scared, read this book!

One for the upcoming Easter

Humpty Dumpty on a wall
Did not see the creature crawl.
It sneaked up behind him,
Stabbed fangs inside him,
Sucked all his blood
And all juices he had.
It knocked the shell off the wall
Humpty had a nasty fall.
Now in fragments on the floor
Humpty Dumpty is no more.
